Zalman CNPS9900 MAX CPU Cooler Review

16 May 2011
  • Summary: Conclusion The Zalman CNPS9900 MAX CPU cooler is a decent CPU cooler. It’s got good looks with the nickel plated design and blue or red LEDs for the fan, but I was sort of surprised to see the results of the testing. It’s been a while since I last reviewed a Zalman CPU cooler and quite frankly I was expecting more cooling performance it. Then again you have to take into account its rather small design and only single fan cooling.

Zalman CNPS9900 MAX

20 December 2010
  • Summary: With the CNPS9900 MAX, Zalman made another attempt to show that its copper fin ring type heatsinks are still competent in handling thermal loads of today's CPUs, and still competitive with the tower-type heatsinks that are pretty-much the norm these days. This, even after the company itself took a dip into the tower-type design with the CNPS 10 series.
  • Pros: Decent Performance, Plenty of directed air "spill" that cools northbridge heatsink and VRM, Support Intel and AMD sockets, Fixed fan, no fan-installation steps, Perfect clearance with memory, VRM and northbridge areas, Included voltage-based fan-speed reduction cable, Thermal compound supplied in syringe, Fan illumination is soft and pleasant, not too bright
  • Cons: Price needs to be lower, Some installation steps complicated, Fan very loud at full-speed, Unique fan, can't get a spare one after the included one's life runs out, No provisions to attach additional or third-party fans

  • Pros: + Koelt enorm goed beter dan verwacht ! Haalt mijn 1090 T op 24 graden en niet hoger op FULL LOAD. Me stock koeler (die nu kapot is) hielt hem met Full load op 45..., + Mooi Design !, + Het geluid op Quiet mode houd hem echt op Quiet hier., + Niet al te groot en niet te zwaar., + Koper en nickel black voor goeie prestaties., + Mooie blauwe led fan (niet te fel).
  • Cons: - Helaas is de installatie niet zo gemakkelijk als verwacht, het was wel ff een gedoe, maar uiteindelijk is het allemaal goed gekomen., - De fan op normale mode, met full load is wel hoorbaar, - De koelpasta is moeilijk uit te wrijven, maar het is te doen.
