Conclusion:  

The ZEROtherm Zen CPU Cooler has taken the towering heatsink design to the next level.  ZEROtherm has decided to add a different feature when designing the Zen CPU Cooler by adding a honeycomb design to the fins in the middle of the heatsink, which will add to the surface area and make the dissipation of the heat more effective. Not only does it have the honeycomb design in the center of it, the Zen CPU Cooler is very large, allowing it to house a 120mm fan on it's front or back side. When you have the 120mm fan installed, the temperatures are average with the other coolers in it's class, however when you decide to take the 120mm fan off, the temperatures shoot up. For all of the features that this cooler has, it does come at a very comparable price, which adds a certain value to the cooler. I have never been a huge fan of a multi-platform design that allows you to switch out the mounting clips, I just do not feel that it gets the contact that it needs. When you plug in the 4-pin plug for the 120mm fan, you get PWM Automatic Fan Control features, which allows the cooler to run quieter than some of the others that are always blowing at full blast. I have always been a fan of a cooler that takes advantages of both copper heatpipes, as well as a copper base. I would suggest the ZEROtherm Zen CPU Cooler to someone looking to upgrade their stock cooling solution, not only because of the features and performance, but for the price as well.
