Zalman’s CNPS7000C-AlCu silent CPU cooler was built with pure copper and pure aluminum for enhanced performance and optimized compatibility design. A mixture of aluminum and copper base and fins ensure excellent heat dissipation while providing an attractive 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 flying colors. (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 and Pure Aluminum Materials Pure copper & pure aluminum 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-AlCu 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 eggsA Decent Cooler

Pros: Simple Installation
Definitely better cooling than stock Intel fan
Comes with optional fan controller

Cons: Seems a bit louder than stock fan at max rpm

Other Thoughts: Im a bit inexperienced when it comes to custom pc building. My pc was built for me and Ive owned it for a few years. I saw a good deal for this cpu cooler and decided to jump on it. I only had to pay for shipping and the time it took for the mail in rebate.

Im running an Intel core 2 quad q8300 at 2.5ghz. With stock cooler I got about 50 degrees Celsius during normal operation. With the Zalman cooler Im getting about 35-40 degrees Celsius.

It took me about 30 minutes to install which, I think, wasnt that bad since it was my first time. Manual was pretty straight forward and made it simple to install. It noticed that the cooler came with thermal grease but I used my own arctic silver 5 thermal compound instead.

Final thoughts:
A good cooler for the price. It definitely gets the job done and was a more efficient cooler compared to the stock cpu cooler I previously had. For me, the fan was a bit louder than the previous fan but this might be because I passed on the fan controller it came with. Not enough of a problem to strike an egg off.

5 out of 5 eggsZALMAN CNPS7000C-AlCu 2 Ball CPU Cooler

Pros: -Easy installation on intel socket 1150 mITX motherboard. Didn't block the two RAM slots either. Nice fit in a case requiring a low profile cpu cooler.

-Cools an overclocked G3258 at 4.2Ghz just fine. Idle temps at 31c, load temps at 62c with the cooler's fan set to an inaudible 1500rpm via the fan controller provided with the zalman kit.

This a great little cpu cooler. Got it for free from Newegg after a $20 rebate, which was approved, and a $9.99 off promo code.

Cons: The fan comes with a 3-pin connector. It is not able to be controlled by the motherboard. If you plug this into your motherboard's cpu fan header, it will run at full speed (and thus super loud). Provided is a simple, small fan controller. This will allow you to control your fan speed manually. Not worth taking an egg off, but it is more cabling and clutter to add to what is probably a space limited mITX case (if you are buying this for the low profile nature of the cpu cooler, you probably have a space limited case).

Other Thoughts: If you can get this with a $20 MIR, it is a pretty decent low profile cpu cooler for its capabilities.

3 out of 5 eggsFancy cooler

Pros: Price.
Looks nice

Cons: 3 pin only - no MB fan control...must use bulky fan controller.(included)
Intel stock cooler performance
Loud fan above 35% speed
Out dated product

Other Thoughts: This is an ancient cooler from Core Duo era. It is OK with minimum fan speed with mild office computing but I do not think it can handle current i7 K family processors.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent cooler

Pros: Cheap.
Decent performance.
Fan controller?

Cons: 3 pin....MB speed sontrol (4pin) will not work.

Other Thoughts: It would be 5 eggs if it has 4 pin connector. Must use fan controller to prevent running max rpm.

5 out of 5 eggsDropped my temp by about 20 degrees celsius

Pros: Works with both chipsets. Clipped on just like it should to my AMD FX processor. PC kept getting up to 60 degrees celsius and i wasn't even really doing anything. Now it's at a steady 40 degrees. Also, it was free because of a $20 rebate and a $10 promo code. Awesome.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsWELL worth the price

Pros: * Very Quiet
* Adjustable rate of cooling, which is snazzy for when you're not using it.
* Low power cost
* It's pretty (you can freely ignore this).
* It's easy to clean and readjust.

Cons: * May fit odd in your case, but will surely fit.

Other Thoughts: This is the first cpu fan/heat sink combo I've ever bought, after switching from older ones from older desktops. It worked so well I forgot to write a review a month after, so here I am, 7 months later. It STILL, is still quiet, and is rather crazy good at what it does. Would recommend to anyone.

5 out of 5 eggskn w the facts

Pros: this is a great cooler for mid - lower wat cpu's. it will cool a more powerful cpu, but there is a biger version of this you should consider for higher watt cpu's. -----SEE OTHER THOUGHTS-----

Cons: don't use this to cool one of those 6-8 core beasts. that would be like pulling a horse trailor with a passenger car. not a good idea. common sense people.

Other Thoughts: now- to the guy who was concerned about it not covering the whole "cpu" because the "cpu" was much larger--- the part you see is what is called a heat spreader. all cpu's (except laptops) have this heat spreader. the cpu is actually much smaller, usually located in the center. do an image serch on cpu with heat spreader removed and you will see how small the cpu really is. a heat sink doesn't need to cover the whole heat spreader- it really needs to be over the cpu mainly. the first time I used this was back in the old pentium 4 days, and it was smaller than the heat spreader, but cooled that chip very well. having a heatsink that covers the whole heat spreader will not be any more effective than one that coveres the cpu die area if the heat sinks are of identical heat dissapation capabilities. what makes these coolers so good is they dissipate heat exceptionally well for their size. I would have no problem using this on an intel i-5 or amd mid-range cpu.

3 out of 5 eggsnot as versatile as they say

Pros: Nice fan setup, pretty, looks good, does come with all kinds of hardware.

Cons: It says AM3 compatible, however the base plate on the heatsink is small, much smaller than an AM3 processor. I have a problem setting this on my processor under the assumption it will cool effectively.

Other Thoughts: It would clip on, however I am not confident enough that a cooler that does not cover the entire processor will cool it correctly. I don't want to risk my $160+ processor for a $30 cooler, I will RMA and find another one. Technically I was going to put this on an AM3+ newer processor, but it is the same size as the AM3 I replaced, just for clarity sake.

4 out of 5 eggsworks good

Pros: Looks and feels nice and expensive. Heavy. Temps are cool, but in all honesty they were cool with the stock fan too.

Cons: That scheisse fan controller is some ugly scheisse, and you HAVE to use it, no choice. Without it the fan is loud as hell. I spend a lot of time in cable management, and taking this outside, and sticking it to my pretty case was horrible. Had to hide it somehow.

They should have used the same 4 pin connector as the original CPU fan, so the mobo can control it. Now its ugly and the mobo cannot control it.

Other Thoughts: Bracket was easy to install too. Taking 1 egg only because you can't use it without the damg ugly controller.

1 out of 5 eggsNot a good fan at all

Pros: Very low profile, easy to install.

Cons: It is very loud. I have an i7 2700k and at idle keeps the temps at 35C or so. Under load when i run intel burn test, it fails. It got to 90C with it and i had to stop the test immediatly. Have to look at alternative fans. Wouldn't recommend it to anybody.

Other Thoughts: Intel i7 2700k @ 3.5ghz
8gb Mushkin DDR3 memory
ASRock Z63 mATX
OCZ Vertex 3 90Gb SSD (OS Drive)
1.5TB Seagate HDD
Thermaltake Lanbox lite
660w OCZ ModXtreme
