Clearly, things are happening in the ZEROtherm R&D department that other companies have yet to discover. Maybe the engineers are eating their Wheaties formulated for advanced engineering skill; to be honest I am not really sure. The only thing I do know is that all of the ZEROtherm products I have tested all work remarkably well without any outside visual indication of being top performers. They just work really REALLY good.
The ZEROtherm ZEN FZ 120 follows the path of the NV120 Premium and Hurricane HC92 CU 8800 and delivers great performance that is comparable to other class leading CPU coolers. If you run a flagship or overclocked processor, the FZ 120 will be a great choice to keep your temperatures and noise levels down. The only cooler that gave us better results is the innovative Sunbeamtech Core-Contact Freezer that we have yet been able to find for sale at retail or e-tail.
The real shocker for the ZEN FZ 120 is the price. As stated previously, the official MSRP was not available at the time of writing but the street value was disclosed to us. At 39.99 after rebate, it is safe to say that you can't go wrong by purchasing the ZEN FZ 120. Many of the coolers that are targeted for enthusiast use start at the 60 US Dollar mark and go up from there. I am going to go out on a limb and say that the ZEN FZ 120 will come with either a 10 or 20 US Dollar rebate, making the initial purchase price either 50 or 60 Dollars. At 50, the cooler is great value; much better than anything we have seen previously. At 60, the competition becomes a little crowded, but our testing has shown that the ZEROtherm ZEN FZ 120 is still the best performer in this price range.
