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%.

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.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear valued customer,

We sincerely apologize for the issue. Please contact our customer service e-mail support.usa@zalmanusa.com or via toll free number 1-888-925-6266 for further assistance.

Thank you.

Best regards,

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.

4 out of 5 eggsGood cooler

Pros: 1. Cost effective
2. Cheap ~ got it elsewhere for $30 after rebate
3. It works
4. Fantastic Zalman customer service

Cons: 1. Pain to install without removing the motherboard
2. Was missing AMD brackets in the package. Contacted Zalman and received necessary parts in 2 days

Other Thoughts: Using it on older setup 970 gigabyte mobo with 8120 AMD CPU stock clock. Before install the idle temp of CPU was 35-45 C. Under load it was 60-75 C!!! But It was somewhat hot this summer in Los Angeles. After cooler install idle temps dropped to 11-30 C. And never exeeded 60 C under load.

3 out of 5 eggsnot as pictured

Pros: Looks like a very well made heatsink with plenty of heat pipes, but I am not installing it to find out.

Cons: Does NOT include the AMD socket AM3 spring clip as pictured, so you WILL have to remove your motherboard to install it if you have an AMD system.

Other Thoughts: This is an upgrade, so I really don't want to pull my system apart to install... I ordered this $$$ heatsink because is was one of the few decent ones sold that claimed to have the AM3 spring clip.

Newegg fails to update the product pic, and I am out shipping and restocking fees... this is my fault how?
