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. With great temps come great noise; even in my computer filled office. So I switched things back to smart fan, and the noise level dropped considerably.
  • 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

CNPS9700 LED - The Zalman Monster

BCCHardware
6 December 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.  The beauty is though that you can run the cooler at very low speeds, and even run without the fan if you have adequate airflow.
  • 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.

  • 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. The design could result in lower case temperatures as well, providing there's an exhaust fan in the vicinity.

  • 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 Pentium.

  • 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. Køleren har i den forbindelse også taget på i overfladeareal og er gået fra 3.698 -> 5490 cm^2.

  • Cons: - El soporte al mother es de cuatro puntos pero el anclaje del cooler solo de dos.

Daily Rush
25 April 2007
  • Summary: Noctua er vendt tilbage med en ny og forbedret køler som skal tage kampen op imod Zalman's populære CNPS serie. I mellemtiden har Zalman ikke ligget på den lade siden, og har i stedet forøget størrelsen på deres vinder køler fra sidst. Hvilken af disse kæmpe kølere skal du vælge til din gamer PC, Kigger vi nærmere på. Så læs med her inden du måske køber det forkerte, for begge kølere har noget godt at byde på.
