Zalman CNPS14X

techPowerUp!
22 July 2013
  • Summary: Zalman's CNPS14X CPU cooler was, while not the quietest in my tests, far from noisy, but its low noise levels are perhaps its best feature. Many users want quiet but powerful systems, and the CNPS14X certainly helps fill that role by being a quiet CPU cooler.
  • Pros: Quiet, Option for up to three fans, Performance with three fans is good, Quality thermal grease included
  • Cons: Price to performance is lackluster, Troublesome to install, Lacks extra fans, Installation manual unclear

  • Conclusion: This cooler performed very well, the CNPS14X is really something to look into if you can afford it. The pricetag is not horrible since you can pick it up for 55$ at Newegg when this review is written.

  • Conclusion: The cooling capabilities of the CNPS14X may have left a little to be desired, but in the noise department it didn't disappoint. It's definitely one of the quieter air coolers we've had on test for a while thanks to its single 140mm fan, and coolers marketed towards those looking for quiet computing...

  • Excerpt: When we think of Zalman coolers we perhaps first call to mind the horizontal cylinder types, often respledant in their natural copper, or perhaps the smaller "top down" rose style coolers.
