Zalman’s CNPS10X Performa gives you the flexibility to install another 120mm fan for added cooling potential. Also incorporated in the Performa are 5 heatpipes, optimized fin profile and heatsink structure for the best performance. Differentiated from typical U-shaped heatpipe coolers, a central band of rippled aluminum fins adds a sleek and cool aesthetic finish. The CNPS10X Performa comes with high performance thermal grease ZM-STG2M, PWM fan speed resistor cable and features universal Intel and AMD socket compatibility.

 

 

  • newegg Dual Fan Support The heatsink is designed to mount one or two fans according to the user’s preference.
  • newegg Powerful Cooling Performance Optimally designed aluminum fins disperse heat away from the CPU via 5 heatpipes, while switching noise free, high capacity 120mm fan quickly cools the heatsink for stable operation of high performance CPUs. (‘Switching Noise’ is the high frequency harmonic noise that can result from voltage regulation.)
  • newegg 180mm Wide Case Compatibility For optimum case compatibility the heatsink’s height is set to 152mm which ensures compatibility with case width of 180mm or greater.
  • newegg High Performance Super Thermal Grease ZM-STG2M The high performance super thermal grease ZM-STG2M maximizes heat transfer from the CPU to the base of CNPS10X Performa for intensified cooling performance.
  • newegg Versatile Compatibility The CNPS10X Performa accommodates a broad range of sockets including Intel LGA 1155/1156/1366/775 and AMD AM3/AM2+/AM2/754/939/940.
  • newegg PWM Fan Speed Resistor When connected to the resistor cable (RC24P), the input voltage of the PWM Fan can be adjusted to control the fan speed and noise level according to user preference. Quiet Mode (RC24P Connected): 900~1,350RPM / 17~24dBA ±10%; Performance Mode (RC24P Not Connected): 900~2,000RPM / 17~36dBA ±10%.

1 out of 5 eggsWRONG BRACKETS

Pros: none....should have read other comments before I purchased.

Cons: Does not come with the right brackets to fit Athlon processors...even though it states it will fit...Do not buy. was sent this after return...Unfortunately, the below item(s) was physically damaged and beyond the applicable Newegg.com warranty coverage as indicated in our Standard Warranty Policy.
Wish I could type everything but can't do to the review guidelines
The thing is I already purchase a 35-103-099 CPU COOLER CM| RR-212E-20PK-R2 R which will fit...will just take the loss and toss the zalman i the TRASH...beware!!!

Other Thoughts: Will rethink buying from New Egg after this experience .

5 out of 5 eggsZalman CNPS10X Performa CPU cooler.

Pros: Sale price, rebate, free shipping.
Very good cooler, I own a pair and a handful plus of Zalman coolers.
This one, 5 tubes, 10 locations, bring hot air into the cooler. One piece bottom works better than separate tube or "direct contact". Have proved it.
Compact, fits most Mid Tower cases.
Fan sits low on the cooler, helps cool areas on the mother board, example: North Bridge.

Cons: ZERO!

Other Thoughts: Zalman's paste is pretty good, I have found that Antecs Formula 7, Nano Diamond, is better. Newegg has it here.
Good for 5C less in temps.
My first generation i7 W3565 (i7 960) idles at 23C, loaded @33C. My 930, 2 940s and 2 950s are within 1C of this. All have Zalman coolers. My i5 systems do well also. It speaks for itself.

5 out of 5 eggsSweet Cooler

Pros: Great cooling and smaller than an old passive zalman cooler I had years ago

Cons: included fan will block memory with heatsinks that are tallie corsair vengeance. Included fan can only be mounted one direction.

Other Thoughts: I got this cooler for my I7 950 after my water cooler died(Came from cyberpower pc when I bought it on sale several years ago) The pump slowly died out on me over the last year. When it was doing its best it kept the temps down to about 38 at full load. This Zalman cooler has temps at 40 degrees will never die and under full load I cant get temps over 48 with prime95. My case is much lighter now just be aware that tall ramsinks will not work out well with this case and newer mobos with tall fsb cooler and huge accessory port on the back like some x99 boards have will interfere with the fan mounts.

1 out of 5 eggsIf it came with correct pieces it'd be great???

Pros: Shiny?

Cons: Doesn't work. Incorrect AMD mounts. They came flat, with no bend on the end - will not fit FX boards.

Other Thoughts: I wrote a whole lot more than this, but it ate it, so I'll write only this: AMD AM3+ users: DO NOT BUY. KTHX.

2 out of 5 eggsGiven wrong clips

Pros: Have owned 4 of these, bought 5th just recently. These are good heatsinks/fans. Proper heat dissipation through the copper tubes, good overall airflow.

Cons: Bought 5th this past weekend. Wrong clips came in the box. I consider this a manufacture defect not the retailer as the retailer obviously does not pack the parts in the box. Submitted proof of purchase to Zalman customer service as well as called them.. No contact back for replacement. Good product, bad customer support.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet

Pros: Quiet, cool

Cons: Pain to install

Other Thoughts: Have used similar Zalman coolers before so I picked this current model. Its quiet quiet and keeps CPU cool but the installation seems harder than it should be. Fits on Asus Z87-A in Antec 300 case (first memory slot is obstructed). Used slots 2/4.

5 out of 5 eggsCan't Complain

Pros: Cools very well. Yet is not giant and obtrusive. Mounting is decent. Although, the stock back plate I did not use, but rather, simply used the motherboard's native back plate.

Cons: I can see how, the back plate might become an issue for inexperienced or misinformed users. I was able to quickly figure out, that if I did not stay with the native back plate from my motherboard, and removed it to use the one with this cooler, the results might be less than optimal. Frankly I was scared to use the back plate that came with this cooler, as my motherboard's back plate was bigger, and well suited to support this cooler.

Other Thoughts: I can say, that this is one of my preferred brands for coolers. However, I find that mounting solutions for many aftermarket CPU coolers are something for the user to contemplate a bit.
For instance, I ended up mounting long springs to not only this one, but to my other CPU cooler which is heavier to support the cooler from the top of the case when a freight train rumbles my residence, or when I move the PC around.

1 out of 5 eggsquality control issues

Pros: cooler looks nice

Cons: The mounting clips for the AMD set up, didn't have the correct shape. It was suppose to dip down on the ends according to the photo in the instructions. I looked at a youtube video and their clips had that. So apparently a bunch of coolers are out there with this issue. Now you cant screw the backing plate to the cooler because the gap is too large. You have to bend the brackets to make it fit..

Other Thoughts: I wish I just stuck with the cooler master cooler. for almost half the price. It was just as good. That's what I get for listening to the forums.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat air cooler

Pros: Still going strong after surviving being tortured by a very overclocked Phenom II X6. Now cools my i7 3770K overclocked by almost 2GHz!

Cons: Included fac can only be mounted in the push configuration and might interfere with tall RAM sticks.
