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.

2 out of 5 eggsNoisey but good looking

Pros: Arrived promptly and installed easily once I found my tube of Arctic Silver. It does come with a container of heat transfer compound (ZM-STG1) but the brush (good idea) was too short to make any contact with what was left in the container.
I have to assume it dried up while on the shelf.

Cons: Instructions not great on detail.
The Fan RPM Control with Fan Mate 2 is waste of time and money. I ended up removing it as it was just too noisey at all but one setting. I ended up plugging the fan into the CPU2 socket and letting the BIOS control the fan. So far so good Zalman should have a PWM fan on all their CPU fans.

Other Thoughts: I understand there is a way to modify the 3 pin MB connector via a transistor, a couple of resistors and a new 4 pin connector to get back my PWM.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Happy!

Pros: I bought an AMD Phenom II X2 550 back in 2010. I initially tried unlocking the extra cores, but was always met with crashing minutes later. I added the 9700 on and it made an incredible difference. Idle temps dropped by 14° Celsius and kept the processor running cool enough to make the unlocked cores stable. Ran Prime95 for 2 hours to test and held its ground. Has been running like a champ for 5 years.

Cons: Instructions are not incredibly clear, but can be deciphered easily enough.

5 out of 5 eggsStill running strong!

Pros: I have been running this cooler 24/7 on a Q6600 since 2008!!!

Recently I replaced the old crusty thermal compound and it regained it's original cooling ability.

Cons: Not a thing!

I will warn people to make sure they have room for it, though.

Other Thoughts: I'm about to retire this old PC and thought I would leave a review since it has served me so well. I would buy a new one, but I'm moving to water cooling.

4 out of 5 eggsEasy to Install

Pros: Great cooling fins, normally I do water cooling but for my less techy friend this is a great solution.

Cons: Should make it clear that in the mode when you have to put the clip at right angles that you pass it through two and three pipes on opposite sides.

Other Thoughts: good product but you need to improve the instructions.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks good

Pros: All copper, very efficient, quiet. not one issue in three years.

Cons: The only thing I've had trouble with is cleaning this beast. I have a dusty house and I have to take my pc apart and clean it every so often. Dust seems to love this thing and it is a pain to clean.

2 out of 5 eggsPain in the a@# to install

Pros: ratings, reviews, looks great

Cons: At the moment, having difficulty installing this unit into my ASUS Maximus Formula VII/4790k. Thermal paste bottle appeared to be just about empty. No backplate for additional support included. Top bracket fits with no problem, however, the bracket that adheres the fan to the top bracket just sucks! One side works and the other side/screw just keeps popping out. Zalman website says this unit is compatible with 1150/i7 etc. however, newegg doesn't list 1150.

Other Thoughts: Any others having this same problem, would appreciate some feedback. At the moment I've installed the fan that came with the 4790k, basic but installed in seconds and I'm sure will work temporarily until I can figure out what to do.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Working Cooler

Pros: This CPU cooler looks very cool, with the all copper fins and blue LED fan. It does a great job of keeping my CPU temps under control. They have yet to exceeded 52c under high load with the fan on low.

Cons: It seems a but heavy compared to other CPU coolers, but not really a problem. The mounting screws are kind of a pain to get started as other reviews have stated. Just a couple millimeters longer in length would be so helpful. I realize they are shorter to insure they don't come into contact with any MB components. My particular setup would allow for slightly longer screws

Other Thoughts: Overall a great working CPU cooler. Yes, it was a bit difficult to mount, but that's all forgotten now that its in and doing is job.

1 out of 5 eggs2nd non-working cooler

Pros: none

Cons: I ordered the product because of the good reviews, and quite operation of the fan.
With the 1st one, the fan was operated @ 75dBA, more than 2x the highest decibel ratting of 19.5-35dBA, so I got a RMA.
Ordered a 2nd one and it has the same issue, the fan blades are impinging on the cooling vanes on one side. There's plenty of room on the other side, the fan unit is just not correctly aligned in either unit.
