Zalman CNPS5X SZ CPU Cooler Review

Hardware Secrets
14 March 2011
  • Summary: At first, we weren't expecting the Zalman CNPS5X SZ to provide good performance. First, because it is smaller and lighter than most good-performance coolers we are used to test. Second, because its heatsink is very similar to the one we saw with the , which wasn't a good performer. However, the CNPS5X SZ surprised us, performing nearly as well as some big, heavy coolers. It is also relatively quiet and inexpensive.

  • Summary: Like its forefather, the CNPS5X-SZ fills the role of a lower profile, light weight cooler that's ideally suited to sub-95W TDP processors. It's stacked aluminum fins are connected by three 6mm diameter copper heatpipes to a small aluminum base block with a thin bit of copper covering the otherwise exposed heatpipes. A single 90mm PWM fan spins at 2800-1400RPM to cool this modified tower heatsink.

  • Excerpt: If Zalman's new 5X cooler comes to market at the promised $30 pricepoint, this cooler is a very good value. It handled the Q6600 processor and its high thermal output with ease and even at 1400 RPM easily beat the OEM solution in near silence. With support for older Intel and AMD sockets, this cooler would make an excellent replacement for a borked OEM cooler or a good choice when added to a new CPU that doesn't come with a cooling device.

  • Excerpt: Najgorętsze dni lata mamy już za sobą, temat wysokich temperatur w przypadku komputerów jest jednak aktualny przez cały rok. Utrzymanie niskich temperatur pracy szybkich kart graficznych czy podkręconych do granic możliwości procesorów wymaga zastosowania odpowiedniego chłodzenia - tu zawsze rodzi się dylemat, które z dostępnych na rynku rozwiązań zapewni dobrą wydajność, cichą pracę i atrakcyjny stosunek możliwości do ceny?

  • Excerpt: Зачастую героями обзоров становятся дорогие и производительные системы охлаждения. Но, естественно, не каждый их может себе позволить или же попросту не хочет зря тратить свои средства. Ведь неплохую эффективность при умеренном шуме вполне могут продемонстрировать более дешевые решения. Тем более, обладателям не коробочных версий процессоров предстоит непростой выбор между простыми охладителями ценой около 10–15 долларов и устройствами среднего уровня.
