The Zalman 9700 CPU cooler offers high-performance cooling in a unique design. The heatsink and fin assembly are made from 100 percent copper for improved heat dissipation. The base is built of both copper and aluminum, keeping the overall weight of the unit down while providing optimal heat transfer to the triple set of copper pipes. The curved heat-pipe design allows them to draw twice the amount of heat away from the processor.

At the center of the aerodynamically optimized tunnel created by the fins is a 110mm, blue LED fan. Included is the company's Fan Mate 2 fan-speed controller. In Silent mode the fan spins at 1,250rpm and creates 19dBA of noise, but when you need extra cooling for demanding tasks you can shift it up to 2,800rpm to quickly force heat away from your CPU and other system components.

The 9700 is compatible with both Intel's LGA 775/1155/1156 and AMD’s Socket AM3/AM2+/AM2/754/939/940 platforms. All the clips and backplates are included so there's nothing else to buy to get the unit attached to your motherboard in minutes. A tube of Zalman's own thermal grease is bundled in as well.

  • newegg Unique Heatpipe Design Three innovative and curved heatpipes provide a heat transfer capacity matching that of six heatpipes designs for maximum performance.
  • newegg Aerodynamically Optimized Heatsink Layout and Ultra-Slim Fins A 100% copper heatsink with an aerodynamically optimized "tunnel" design and 0.2mm ultra-slim fins maximize heatsink efficiency with minimal weight and smoother airflow for optimum cooling.
  • newegg Adjustable Fan Speed Controller The bundled adjustable fan speed controller (Fan Mate 2) enables manual fan speed adjustment ranging from 1,250rpm to 2,800rpm and provides a silent mode and low-noise mode for an optimum balance between silence and performance.
  • newegg Blue LED Lighting The ultra-quiet 110mm fan produces brilliant illumination during operation for eye-catching fun.
  • newegg Universal Socket Compatibility As an all-in-one solution for PC systems, the ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED features broad compatibility with all AMD Socket AM3/AM2+/AM2/754/939/940 and Intel LGA 775/1155/1156 platforms.

5 out of 5 eggsExtremely good cooler

Pros: - Excellent cooling performance
- Great price
- Easy and flexible mounting
- Good solid construction

I've had this cooler for about 5 years now and it's cooled 3 different processors and it still works like a charm. As of right now I am using an FX-8350 (4.5Ghz) idling around 19-20C. Under heavy load (Prime95 small FFT) it hits around 40C top end. Only ever seen my CPU push 50C when the GPU is spitting fire.

Cons: - LED is kind of weak, but not really a big deal.
- Fanmate is next to useless
- Used a 3-pin so you can't control fan speed with software.
- Somewhat loud, but not too bad.

Other Thoughts: Though I listed a few cons I'll give this bad boy 5 eggs for how ridiculous it performs, even on toasty CPUs like the 8350.

5 out of 5 eggsStill running like a champ

Pros: I have had this thing for years. First went on my AMD 955. It did ok but I wanted cooler temps for overclocking so I upgraded that cooler to a huge megahlems and stuck this on an old AMD X2 6400 that ran really hot with it's stock cooler and it brought the temps down about 20°C. Didn't OC it just wanted to extend the life.

Cons: Not the best cooler.

Other Thoughts: Has held up over years and years of use. Fan still spins with no issues. I am getting ready to move it to another build for my kids.

2 out of 5 eggsNot sure what to make of this.

Pros: Nice looking fan, blades spin freely, looks like it would be very effective.

Cons: Unit arrived without a backing plate. There are four independent nuts that sit on the back of the motherboard, and this does match the instructions, but it seems lacking for such a heavy set up. There was also no screwing the fan down, just one latch that fastens over the top, leaving the entire unit free to rotate with very little pressure.

Other Thoughts: This is my first build, so I started off with a lot of questions, but now I am dead in the water.

This set up wouldn't bother me so much, except the company seems very difficult to get a hold of, and after searching the internet for quite some time, nobody seems to have the set up I received in the mail.

5 out of 5 eggsThis is so worth it!

Pros: The cooling, It is superb! I have owned this for 7 years and 4 months. It has never let me down. This is the second machine its been in. Original Fan. Its all COPPER!

Cons: The mounting for AMD is a bit tricky if you don't figure it out right away. It had me stumped for about 10 seconds. The bracket goes in a certain way. Directions did help. This item is HUGE. I find that more of a pro than a con though. the fan LEDs are not as bright after 7 years... Yeah...

Other Thoughts: When this thing arrives and you open your newegg box and see it for the first time. You will be amazed at how big it is. You will not feel like you bought some measly Hyper 212. You bought the cooling beast.

1 out of 5 eggsone out of two is bad

Pros: ordered two from the egg. Rebate on one...
First one worked great, dropped loaded cpu temp 30 degrees better than stock intel fan/sink.

Cons: As for the second unit the fan was off-center. Blades were hitting the cooling fins making an unbearable noise....vibration transfer to mobo, cpu, UGH!
Package was totally undamaged and none of the fins were bent.
It appears the fan mounting bracket is for another model...

Other Thoughts: I hate returns. It takes a while to get a label and two weeks later it arrives...
So I improvised with trusty prybar and needle nose pliers. It no longer hits the fins. not perfectly centered and cpu is 30 degrees cooler under load.
First time buying Zalmann, last time buying Zalmann. Only get one chance to make a first impression.
