Zalman CNPS9700 LED HSF

GideonTech
23 May 2007
  • Conclusion: With the change from the Vizo Igloo over to the Zalman CNPS 9700 LED, I didn't change the fan setting on the motherboard right away from FULL on smart fan. When I first powered up the computer with the Zalman heat sink, I was thinking that the noise was too much However, the temps were a nice 27C.
  • Pros: Well designed mounting bracket, Low 40 degree temps for full load, Easy to mount, Comes with the fan controller, Polished surface
  • Cons: Fan not protected, Non-replaceable fan

  • Excerpt: Their new CNPS9700 LED cooler is the real deal. It's got performance, even easier installation and virtually universal compatibility. With outstanding fit and finish, a big aggressive presence and the blue LED fan, it also has great looks and would be an excellent upgrade for the stock cooler.

CNPS9700 LED - The Zalman Monster

BCCHardware
12 June 2006
  • Summary: We first tested the CNPS9700 LED at stock speeds on our Core 2 Duo E6600 processor. At this speed, even stock coolers perform well enough and if you are running a mid-range Core 2 CPU at stock speeds, the CNPS9700 is really overkill.
  • Pros: Excellent performance and low noise at low speed., Flat and smooth base., FANMATE 2 allows fan and noise control., Motherboard removal not required on Athlon 64 platforms.
  • Cons: FANMATE 2 adds clutter to case and isn't very pretty to mount on your case., Very large cooler may not fit in some medium sized cases., Price is pretty steep for an aircooler.

ZALMAN CNPS 9700 LED

9 December 2007
  • Pros: Koelt er goed, vooral indien de fan maximale toeren maakt.
  • Cons: Fan is niet stil. Enkel op de allerlaagste toerentallen werkelijk stil., Redelijk prijzig; hierdoor zou ik persoonlijk eerder naar Scythe neigen.

  • Excerpt: Så har Zalman lavet det træk som mange har bedt om. Teknologien bag Zalman 9500 køleren har fået en kærkommen tilføjelse i form af en 110 mm blæser til at erstatte den 92 mm version, som var lige lovlig god til at generere støj. Det var egentligt den eneste direkte svaghed da køleren kom frem.

6 March 2007
  • Summary: Итак, несмотря на существенно снижение энергопотребления новейших интеловских настольных процессоров, требования к их охлаждающим системам отнюдь не ослабли. И это связано с тем, что максимально допустимая температура крышки этих процессоров снизилась до 60 градусов против примерно 70 градусов для...

  • Summary: Zalman CNPS9700 LED немного обходит CNPS9500 LED по всем параметрам: он чуть лучше охлаждает, даёт чуть меньше шума, чуть более крупный и тяжёлый. Большой вес приводит к риску повреждения материнской платы, например, при переноске компьютера на LAN-вечеринки.
