Zalman CNPS8000A CPU Cooler Review

Hardware Secrets
20 September 2010
  • Summary: Some time ago, high-performance computers had to use huge cases, and small cases were seen as a signal of a "weak" computer. Nowadays, however,  Home Teather PCs (HTPCs) are getting more and more common, and high-performance computers can be easily built using SFF (small form factor) cases, making this old notion "wrong". It is good to see that there are nice options for cooling the CPU in this kind of computer.

Expert Review

Silent PC
30 July 2006
  • Summary: We have to shake our heads and wonder what Zalman was thinking. They have years of experience building heatsinks, and they have created some excellent products in the past. But, the CNPS8000 is not one of them. Not only is the performance below what we've come to expect, the fan is also noisier than any of Zalman's past efforts — and it can't be replaced.
