ZALMAN CNPS7000C-Cu 2 Ball CPU Cooler

  • 1,350rpm ± 10% ~ 2,400rpm ± 10%
  • Pure Copper
ICON Loading...

Zalman’s CNPS7000C-Cu silent CPU cooler was built with pure copper for enhanced performance and optimized compatibility design. Pure copper base and fins ensure excellent heat dissipation while providing an appealing appearance. An enclosed 92mm dual ball-bearing fan is reasonably silent even at its maximum fan speed setting, but yet offers excellent cooling. When your aim is to silently cool the CPU, this sophisticated cooler will accomplish your tasks with some weight. (Note for CPU installation: no motherboard components with a height greater than 39mm, as well as the PSU, disk drives, VGA card, and RAM should be present within a 55mm radius from the center of the CPU.)

  • newegg It’s all about silence The 92mm fan inside the heatsink maximizes airflow and does not generate noise or vibration in Silent Mode. Adjustable fan speed controller (FAN MATE 2 and FAN MATE 2 cable) is included for control of noise and fan performance.
  • newegg Pure Copper Materials Pure copper base and fins disperse heat away from the CPU, while the central 92mm fan quickly cools the heatsink for stable operation of high performance CPUs.
  • newegg Versatile Compatibility The CNPS7000C-Cu accommodates a broad range of sockets including Intel LGA 1155/1156/775 and AMD AM3/AM2+/AM2/754/939/940 (up to 95W TDP).

5 out of 5 eggsCools well and not too big

Pros: Keeps my processor at low 30s at idle and around 40 at load. Copper fins. Copper at the base. Smaller than a lot of the other heatsinks on the market I have seen.

Cons: Sure wish there was a better clip design, always feel like i'm going to break the plastic on the motherboard trying to install a heatsink.

Other Thoughts: CPU: AMD Phenom II 1100T
MOBO: Biostar TA870U3+
MEM: Kingson HyperX 8GB DDR3 1333

4 out of 5 eggsGood low-profile AMD cooler

Pros: 1) Cools well. I have used for over 1 year on an Athlon II X3 435 2.9GHz Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core Processor ADX435WFK32GI, not overclocked but with the 4th core unlocked, and it is never hot. This is for a HTPC/kids flash game machine, so I'm not really stressing the CPU
2) Low profile. Fits easily in an HTPC case.
3) Once the fan+heatsink are assembled, easy to install or remove. Clips onto the standard AM2/AM3 clips, although you do need a screwdriver to have enough leverage to get it off.

Cons: 1) Putting the fan on the heatsink (or getting it back off again) is tedious. The clip arm fits between the two, and getting it in there properly takes some trial and error.
2) The fan controller is awkward, seems like an afterthought. I just plug the fan straight into the mobo. It is the noisiest fan on the rig, but overall not that bad.
3) Can't replace the fan with a quieter one. But that's really a trade-off of such a low-profile design

Other Thoughts: I've used this for a year on a mATX board (Asus m4a785td) and really haven't had any issue with it. I don't use the DIMMS closest to the CPU, however I do think it possible to do so, if the SDRAM heatsinks are not too tall, otherwise they might touch the underside of the fins.

I would buy it again for a low-profile use, although I only give it 4 eggs as it's not perfect.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very Nice, Copper cools well. I use an AMD Phenom II Dual Core, OC by 15%, and my temps never go above 40C

Cons: Very heavy, Make sure you have a retention holder.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent, despite the potentional fatal flaw

Pros: The cooler came with just about every piece imaginable to make sure you got this connected to the processor correctly. The fan is pretty quiet, installation was pretty easy. It's also easier on the eyes than the vanilla flavored stock heatsink.

Cons: It's a lot bigger than I thought. While removing the fan to install the AMD clip (as per the instructions), I noticed loose metal flakes between the fan and heatsink (aluminum shavings would have been my guess). I understand that these are constructed in an industrial environment, but if the flakes were to fall out after installation, the results could have been disastrous. I have to knock one egg off for the lack of QC oversight.

Other Thoughts: This cooler is replacing a stock heatsink for an AMD Phenom 9550. I can't tell if it has helped drop the temperature on the processor since I replaced all the fans inside the case, but the system as a whole seems to be running cool, as well as quiet. That's all I can ask for.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Cooler

Pros: Its pretty quiet. The copper core is a fantastic heat sink. The price wasn't too bad either.

Cons: Its not silent, no LED's >_< but that's ok.

Other Thoughts: The design of this thing was well thought out. I installed this in a micro ATX boar where the socket was really close to the RAM. although it took a little finagling to get it all situated but the fins weren't touching the memory.

5 out of 5 eggsFit Where I Thought It Wouldn't

Pros: Drops the temp on my i5 2500k 8-10 degrees Celsius. Under heavy benchmarking it will stay around 40C. Idles at 30.
Solid copper.
Quiet and dropped overall motherboard/ambient temps.

Cons: Its big and round, it might take up space of some ram slots, it actually touches one of mine, but I've had no issues in over a month with lots of gaming plus benchmarks.

Other Thoughts: Fit this into my rig consisting of:
ASUS P8P67-Pro micro ATX motherboard in a Thermaltake Lanbox Lite case, with 8 gigs of PC2133 mem, EVGA Geforce GTX 570. This cooler allowed me to OC my i5 2500k to 4.6ghz with never one hicup or heat issues under the most intense gaming and rendering applications.

The packaged cooler from Intel is worthless, my system would overheat and reboot with overclocking. With this problem solved and the rest of my components run cooler as well.

5 out of 5 eggsvery impressed

Pros: -Almost completely copper
-Design allows for it to fit over components on motherboard
-Straight forward installation on motherboard
-Included paste easy to apply and seems to be working well
-Cooled temps on C2D E6550 from 50-75c down to 30-45c.

Cons: Three pin connector (comes with proprietary fan speed control)

Other Thoughts: This is my first aftermarket cooler and I am very impressed with the result. I was concerned about the tight fit in my case and around the northbridge heat sink. It is larger than the stock LGA775 cooler but not enormous. The top of it "blossomed" up and over the northbridge with a bit of clearance to spare. Installing on the motherboard was easy with the included hardware. I am not using the included fan control, I have a fan splitter than includes a PWM connection that I am using instead.

5 out of 5 eggsPapplvlly

Pros: Reduced temperature by average of 20 degrees. Easily installed on AM2 Board. Actually runs faster than the advertized 2,400rpm ±, Using the controller it runs at about 2550 rpm, w/o the controller it runs at 2700 rpm.

Cons: Not a con but be aware that it's bigger than it looks. It's about 4 and 3\4 inches across the top and about 2 and 1\2 inches deep.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat cooler

Pros: Good cooling capacity. Quiet fan. I installed this on a Gigabyt H55N-USB3 miniITX board, but had to cut some fins to make it fit. Max temp running Prime95 on my OC 3GHz i5 750 was 71 deg. With stock cooler temps were 86 deg. At high speed, the fan is quieter than the stock fan, although still a bit noisy. Other than my needing to cut the fins, mounting was very easy. The included thermal grease came in a small metal tube and was quite usable.

Cons: Heavy and rather large.

Other Thoughts: I have not yet tried using the variable fan speed control - rely only on the BIOS auto adjust. At normal load, the fan is not audible (1400 to 1600 rpm). At load, the fan goes up to 2800 rpm and is definitely audible, but quieter than the stock fan. Although I had to cut fins to make it fit my board, I am very pleased with the result.

5 out of 5 eggsabsolutely brilliant

Pros: Cools like nobody's business.
Using stock cooler (Quad Core2) the CPU was overheating and shutting down on a complex IDX render. Installed the CNPS7000C-Cu 2 and all 4 cores were maxed for 2hrs and the temp never exceeded 41C. Cut the render time by 20%.

Cons: Slightly time consuming to install on an already built system, but easy none the less (very minor --).

Other Thoughts: Very easy install, very snug fit. Used high-end paste and not the stuff that came with the CNPS7000-CU 2.
