Zalman CNPS10X Performa CPU cooler.

Anonymous, Newegg
2 February 2015
  • Summary: Zalman's paste is pretty good, I have found that Antecs Formula 7, Nano Diamond, is better. Newegg has it here. Good for 5C less in temps. My first generation i7 W3565 (i7 960) idles at 23C, loaded @33C. My 930, 2 940s and 2 950s are within 1C of this. All have Zalman coolers.
  • Pros: Sale price, rebate, free shipping. Very good cooler, I own a pair and a handful plus of Zalman coolers. This one, 5 tubes, 10 locations, bring hot air into the cooler. One piece bottom works better than separate tube or "direct contact". Have proved it. Compact, fits most Mid Tower cases. Fan sit...
  • Cons: ZERO!

Sweet Cooler

Marshall E., Newegg
6 January 2015
  • Summary: I got this cooler for my I7 950 after my water cooler died(Came from cyberpower pc when I bought it on sale several years ago) The pump slowly died out on me over the last year. When it was doing its best it kept the temps down to about 38 at full load.
  • Pros: Great cooling and smaller than an old passive zalman cooler I had years ago
  • Cons: included fan will block memory with heatsinks that are tallie corsair vengeance. Included fan can only be mounted one direction.

Quiet

Kevin L., Newegg
22 February 2014
  • Summary: Have used similar Zalman coolers before so I picked this current model. Its quiet quiet and keeps CPU cool but the installation seems harder than it should be. Fits on Asus Z87-A in Antec 300 case (first memory slot is obstructed). Used slots 2/4.
  • Pros: Quiet, cool
  • Cons: Pain to install

Can't Complain

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: I can say, that this is one of my preferred brands for coolers. However, I find that mounting solutions for many aftermarket CPU coolers are something for the user to contemplate a bit.
  • Pros: Cools very well. Yet is not giant and obtrusive. Mounting is decent. Although, the stock back plate I did not use, but rather, simply used the motherboard's native back plate.
  • Cons: I can see how, the back plate might become an issue for inexperienced or misinformed users. I was able to quickly figure out, that if I did not stay with the native back plate from my motherboard, and removed it to use the one with this cooler, the results might be less than optimal. Frankly I wa...

Great air cooler

Willard U., Newegg
25 October 2013
  • Pros: Still going strong after surviving being tortured by a very overclocked Phenom II X6. Now cools my i7 3770K overclocked by almost 2GHz!
  • Cons: Included fac can only be mounted in the push configuration and might interfere with tall RAM sticks.
