  • Excerpt: I would hope at this point the Zalman CNPS10X series of coolers have caught your attention. My first glance at the currently growing series of coolers was with the CNPS10X Extreme . This was a new take on incorporating stylish looks with an integrated and removable fan controller. The controller had pre-set fan speeds or actually allowed for dial control as well.

Zalman CNPS10X Performa CPU Cooler Review

ThinkComputers
10 March 2010
  • Summary: Conclusions The Zalman 10X Performa had no problem whatsoever keeping the hot temps of the 130 watt Core i7 920 to manageable levels. The 10X Extreme remains the best air cooler I’ve used with the i7 920, and the Performa was only three degrees higher. The 10X Performa also tied with the CNPS 9900LED. Zalman has a winner with the CNPS 10X Performa. As always with Zalman coolers, the Performa does its job in silence. It has a fairly low profile for a 120mm cooler.
  • Pros: Fairly low profile for a 120mm tower, Low speed adapter has large 1 Watt resistor, Excellent performance, comparable with the 10X Extreme, Costs $25 less than the 10X Extreme
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: Zalman's CNPS10X Extreme fulfills both roles pretty well care of a cleverly integrated PWM fan speed controller in the top part of the fan shroud. Do nothing and the CNPS10X Extreme's 120mm fan will fall under BIOS control, automatically scaling fan speed from 1000RPM to 2150RPM as needed.

  • Excerpt: My first retail purchase of an aftermarket CPU cooler was a Zalman CNPS9500, in all its copper glory. The cooler was rated really well at that time and only bested in the Zalman lineup by the 9700 series of coolers. Back then Zalman was banking on a cooler that radiated fins from the center in a "barrel" style. This has seemed to have worked, as Zalman not too awful long ago released the CNPS9900 LED cooler.

ZALMAN CNPS 10X Extreme

  • Pros: - Makkelijk te installeren op AM3 socket (eigenlijk het zelfde met elke cooler)., - Ziet er strak uit., - De fan controller werkt fantastisch, zelfs mogelijkheid om de controller buiten de kast te plaatsen met bijgeleverd snoertje. Ik heb zelf de controller gewoon op de cooler laten zitten, en op low gezet (1000-1500 RPM)., - Houd mijn AMD Phenom II X4 965 op 25.6 graden idle, en rond de 30-35 stressed (op low settings!)., - Fluisterstil op Low settings, bij mid en hi...
  • Cons: - Bijgeleverde coolpasta is naar mijn mening veels te dik om goed uit te kunnen smeren, ik ben altijd nog een fanatieke Arctic Silver 5 gebruiker, dat veel gemakkelijker is in gebruik.

21 August 2009
  • Conclusion: Este Zalman CNPS10X Extreme en conjunto, nos ha dejado muy satisfechos. El revestimiento de níquel negro que presenta le da un toque muy agresivo, y a primera vista deja la impresión de que se va comer cualquier grado de más que salga de nuestra cpu, sin duda un gran acierto de Zalman el haber elegido esta tendencia, sin duda su estética atraerá a muchos usuarios.
  • Pros: Performance sobresaliente, Estructura robusta, Instalación sencilla y muy segura, Estética Black Pearl, Compatibilidad de socket total, Pasta térmica de calidad, Controlador de ventilador extraíble, Relación calidad/precio, Iluminación led, Presentación  y packing, Base niquelada efecto espejo
  • Cons: Nivel sonoro al max., Instalación en Socket AMD mejorable
