Zalman CNPS9900 Max Review

maximum pc
13 January 2011
  • Summary: Whatever the reason, we’re pleased to welcome Zalman back into the top ranks of air-cooling. Our only complaint concerns the tricky installation process—Prolimatech’s approach is still vastly superior. At $80, the CNPS9900 Max is a bit on the pricey side, but for top-tier performance in a familiar (yet not skyscraper-shaped) package, we’ll spring for it.
  • Pros: Top-tier performance; quiet; good looks; less sharp than its predecessor.
  • Cons: Frustrating install; proprietary bolts.

Benchmark Reviews
4 December 2010
  • Conclusion: Please remember that these test results reflect our experience with each cooler on a specific motherboard, with a specific processor, BIOS revision, and test programs. That said, the ranking produced by these tests is accurate and gives a good idea how the coolers will perform relative to one another on any given system.

Zalman CNPS9900 MAX Prozessorkühler

17 April 2011
  • Summary: Selbst 2011 kann das (Kühl)Design der Koreaner überzeugen. Der neue Zalman CNPS9900 MAX beweist eindrucksvoll, dass auch Nicht-Tower-Kühler über eine sehr gute Leistung verfügen können. Darüber hinaus wissen Verarbeitungsqualität und Montagesystem beim neuen Zalman Cooler zu gefallen. Lediglich die Lautstärke des vorinstallierten Lüfters lässt bei höchster Umdrehungszahl etwas zu wünschen übrig.
  • Pros: saubere Verarbeitung, sehr gute Kühlleistung, einfache Montage, passt auf alle gängigen Sockeltypen, PWM-Lüfter, cooles Design inkl. Beleuchtung, fairer Preis
  • Cons: Lüfter bei max. Umdrehungszahl hörbar, kein Lüftertausch möglich
