Perfect Cooler (Zalman CNPS9900-MAX Blue)

  • Excerpt: This zalman cooler is perfectly cooling my 775 Intel CPU to 30deg almost constantly without any noise whatsoever. I am even using the resistor cable to reduce the rpm and CPU is still running as cool as ever. No complain on CPU loads either, temps go up to 45degs max and still canu2019t hear the fan when running at full speed. Lovely design, very nice blue led around the fan, aluminium looks great inside the case.

  • Excerpt: This cooler is great value for price as my cpu barely ever hits 50 degrees at full load, combined with my case fans. and i have an ivy bridge so it runs pretty hot. Not only is this a good cooler, but it aesthetically looks good, with its blue glow, that matches my black and blue theme. I wouldn't say there are any downsides but the heat sinks do tear up your hands, and its fairly heavy. But its overall a great cooler for a good price. Buy one now.

  • Excerpt: Looks great. Quiet, but not much quieter than the stock cooler on an AMD A10 5800K. Also, make sure you have adjustable CPU fan speed options in the bios to allow it to reach lower speeds. Keeps the CPU much cooler than the stock cooler - by almost 10 degrees C! Quite fiddly to install, and it's not obvious which way it should be facing.

  • Excerpt: Looks great, although that doesn't matter for something that goes inside. According to my tests it keeps the CPU very cool, even at load. Quite bulky. Difficult to manoeuvre around in the case once fitted. Wasn't clear that it included a bracket for LGA 2011 Xeon sockets so I bought those brackets extra for no reason.

Reliable, performs

  • Summary: Going water on my new build, but if that doesn't please, ordering another one of these. The first is staying with the original build, going to a friend.
  • Pros: When properly installed, with a good seat and the right paste, this thing does silently what many can't do while making a racket. It's been on my Phenom II x4 955 BE @4.0ghz for five years, going on six. That chip stocks at 3.2, had to bump the volts and it still handles the heat. idles at 32C, normal operation at 40, Prime95 never goes above 52c. Got a scythe 120 slipstream on the back that no doubt helps, but it can't move heat that stays on the chip. If you can fit...
  • Cons: It's large, bit heavy, so make sure everything is secured before tipping tower upright. Um, gets dusty? Hard to find cons, it's got one job: cool the cpu. It does it brilliantly.

  • Summary: I purchased the last CNPS9900MAX Newegg had, and I doubt they'll be restocked. I feel privileged to to own a Zalman cooler before they're gone (forever?) Thank you Zalman for an awesome cooler; I hope you continue to release new and innovate products for many years to come.
  • Pros: Great cooling. Great price. Unique look.
  • Cons: Not being made anymore?

Fantastic cooler, below avg company

Wayne J., Newegg
26 February 2015
  • Pros: Works great with killer looks. Louder than I thought it would be and had to install their fan controller. Mounting isn't as bad as some say but I would never attempt to install anyone's heat sink cooler w/o removing the motherboard from the case.
  • Cons: The design engineers can't be happy they work for a company that seems to be so out to lunch. Many of their products are sold out and they have nonexistent customer service. I really want the red version of this fan but it always seems to be sold out. And I've been trying to buy an extra mounting kit for a CNPS9900A LED for weeks. They do NOT anwer their phones or emails.
