Summary: I've had the opportunity to take a look at quite a few Zalman coolers over the years, including the CNPS9700 which could be considered the "Big Version" of the CNPS9300 AT, so when I had the opportunity to take a look at this cooler I was rather interested to see how it would stack up.
Pros: Smaller size than previous versions, Easy Installation, High Quality Construction
Cons: Average Performance, Slight Vibration Noise from Fan
Excerpt: The new CNSP9300 AT from Zalman is a scaled down version of their popular CNPS9700 CPU cooler. The CNPS9300 AT incorporates a built in 92mm fan and uses the same curved figure 8 heat pipe design with thin copper fins as its big brother.
Summary: The AMI BIOS on this motherboard allows for Smart Fan calibration, which tests the attached fan, determines its capabilities and makes a recommendation for power settings. The 1562/2368 detected min/max fan speed is within Zalman's claimed spec, and the suggested PWM values match those of the...
Conclusion: While it might be damn noisy, the Zalman CNPS9300-AT is actually a pretty nice cooler. It performs well and looks great, and though it’s price isn’t exactly the best, there are much more expensive coolers out there, that perform worse than this one.
Pros: Looks cool, Good performance, Easy installation.
