zt1 ZEROTherm BTF80 & BTF90 CPU Coolers Review

The BTF90 mounted on the Asus P5WD2-E Premium Motherboard, with an Intel Pentium XE 955(3.46Ghz) processor sandwiched in between. The main reason why we chose to use this processor for the review is because of the whopping 130watts TDP the CPU is rated at, which is one of the hottest CPU in the commercial market today.

A shot of the BTF90 in its full glory. 2 Red LEDs on the left and right side of the fan! The red lights on the orangish copper gives a nice look.
