  • Summary: Zalman has made an incredible new cooler. The unique design of the heatpipes seems to play a great advantage to the cooling performance. Traditional heatpipe towers make use of six heatpipes while the CNPS9500 only uses three.
  • Pros: Excellent performance, Incredibly silent, Very easy to install, Looks great with blue LEDs, Very smooth and clean base
  • Cons: Very expensive, No 92mm fan option (nitpicking here)

  • Excerpt: Zalman has done it again. Their CNPS9500 LED cooler has it all. It's got performance, easy installation and virtually universal compatibility. With flawless fit and finish, an aggressive stance and a blue LED fan, it also has great looks and would be an excellent upgrade for the stock cooler.

Zalman CNPS9500 LED

17 November 2005
  • Summary: For comparison purposes, we included the Thermaltake Big Typhoon cooler as well as the Asetek VapoChill Micro Series. The Big Typhoon has 6 heatpipes and a 120mm silent fan. This cooler generally kicks the butt of the Thermalright XP-90, XP-90C, and even the XP-120.
  • Pros: Medium Weight Cooler (530g), Incredible Performance, Virtually silent at low speed and barely audible over 7v modded system fans at high speed., Socket 478/, 754/939/940 won't likely require motherboard removal., Nifty Design with 3 "figure 8" heatpipes., Fan Mate 2 for custom fan speeds.
  • Cons: Doesn't come with mounting instructions - must be downloaded., Mounting can require a fair bit of assembly on some platforms.
