The ZALMAN CNPS8000B offers high performance cooling at a noticeably low noise level. An ultra quiet 92mm PWM fan with fluid shield bearing, four heatpipes and aluminum fins combines to deliver efficient heat dissipation to keep your CPU and surroundings cool. With a height of only 66mm, the CNPS8000B is perfect for LP (low profile) cases while broad socket compatibility makes it suitable for almost all the mainstream motherboard platforms. Thanks to the one piece design of the installation clip and bolt, the installation is a breeze.

  • newegg Ultra quiet fan with fluid shield bearing Thanks to the 4-pin 92mm PWM fan, the switching noise* is eliminated. With FSB (Fluid Shield Bearing) bearings, the fan’s lifespan and noise is improved considerably compared to previous sleeve bearing fans. (*switching noise is the high frequency harmonic noise that can result from voltage regulation.)
  • newegg Powerful Cooling Performance Four heatpipes and aluminum fins are designed for maximum cooling while switching noise free, down-blowing 92mm fan minimizes noise and cools not only the CPU but also provides powerful peripheral cooling.
  • newegg Slim profile The CPU cooler’s height is 66mm and designed to be installed in ATX case as well as slim or LP (low profile) cases.
  • newegg Versatile Compatibility The CNPS8000B accommodates a broad range of sockets including Intel LGA1156/1155/1366/775 and AMD FM1/AM3+/AM3/AM2+/AM2.
  • newegg Easy Installation The cooler installation clip and bolt are designed as one-piece, making installation convenient, and the exclusive back plate prevents flexing of the motherboard.
  • 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 CNPS8000B for intensified cooling performance.

5 out of 5 eggsGets The Job Done

Pros: I bought this because I bought a CPU without a heatsink. It does a great job and my motherboard can easily control the fan and the noise level.

Cons: I have none.

Other Thoughts: If you're complaining about the noise or the fact that you were expecting dramatic temperature difference, then maybe you should think about water cooling.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrifically bad mounting system

Pros: I can't think of any.

Cons: The mounting system is awful. You don't screw anything directly into the backplate - you stick some plastic grommets on the backplate and then some metal fasteners plug into the grommets. The fasteners have threaded holes on the top so you can screw your CPU cooler into them, but the fasteners themselves don't screw into the grommets, they just get pushed in. This means once you get your CPU cooler screws into the fasteners the backplate can still just fall off the motherboard. I guess they think the double-sided tape is enough to hold the backplate and entire cooler on? I don't know what they were thinking.

I tried for almost an hour to get this thing to work, but it's the worst mounting system for a CPU cooler I have ever seen. I don't understand what they were thinking when they made it. I hope I didn't damage my motherboard trying to put this thing on.

This is actually the second of these I have purchased. The first one came with a cracked fan out of the box, so I had to RMA it. Once I got the second, and saw how bad the mounting system is, I can't believe how much time and money I have wasted on this thing. Since this second one is used, I won't bother with an RMA - I will just be throwing it out. Zalman has lost my business - I don't ever want to see one of their products ever again. It was nothing but bad design with low quality parts.

Other Thoughts: I have also ordered another (different model) CPU cooler, but that one didn't come with a backplate so I can't mount it. This makes 3 coolers I've received so far, and still haven't been able to assemble my PC. Why can't I get a complete AM3 CPU cooler, all parts included, with a simple mounting system? This shouldn't be such a issue.

I also don't understand why this has so many good reviews for it - apparently everyone else got something I didn't.

5 out of 5 eggsMy review over my 1st Zalman CPU cooler

Pros: I got this in today from newegg, took the OLD CPU cooler and backplate off to install the new zalaman backplate and the zalman paste & cooler, TEMPS dropped MUCH lower!! I use Fahrenheit for my ASUS PC Probe for Win 7, I went from 132 F idle to 86 F. Idles around 86-95 F! Much better

Cons: Right now, none!

Other Thoughts: Well worth every cent I paid for this guy! I will make a note to buy a 3rd party cpu cooler for PC builds in the very near future!!

2 out of 5 eggsWhat a pain

Pros: great compact size for HTPC setup

Cons: was a pain to get the brackets on to mount the cooler for a LGA1150 socket.

Other Thoughts: so far performance is not that much better than stock Intel cooler.

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely cool

Pros: Keeps the CPU cool, low profile, and QUIET! Outside of my water-cooler, this is the best CPU cooler I've ever used on a system. I really bought it because of it's low-profile and it fit nicely inside my HTPC case. I'm surprised that in spite of it's size, it keeps my i7-3770K cool no matter what I'm working on. It's quiet even though the holes on my case are directly above the CPU and I can even see the fan inside the case from sitting on my sofa. Whether I sit 10 feet away or standing right next to the TV screen (near the HTPC), I still can't hear this fan.

Cons: None at all.

Other Thoughts: Zalman has a super performer in this cooler. it is excellent and I'll definitely purchase another one for my future build(s).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product from Zalman

Pros: Very quiet and very inexpensive with rebate. Best used in a HTPC or in a mini itx, although with all the parts it comes with it seems to fit any need.

Cons: Not a con at all but I have a MB with and AM2 socket and I found that I had to follow the install instructions for an Intel socket 775.

Other Thoughts: Buy one if you need a small, quiet, inexpensive cpu cooler.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Cooler

Pros: Compact for cases with minimal width, clears board components on all AM2/AM3 boards I have tried it on.

Cons: Only 5-10% better cooling than stock AMD fan (though extra case cooling helps this gap increase).

Other Thoughts: Great bang for the buck when tower coolers like the Coolermaster 212 and larger Zalman units won't fit.

1 out of 5 eggsnot for itx build

Pros: Copper bottom

Cons: On a ASRock FM2A75M-ITX Rev 2.0 board, it overhangs one of the memory slots.

Retention mechanism not as nice as Cooler Master products (ie 212 Evo & GeminII M4)

5 out of 5 eggsThis thing rocks

Pros: Small - Low profile
Quiet & efficient

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This cooler is perfect for Micro-itx builds. First off, my build consists of the following:
Case - Cooler Master Elite 120
Mobo - Gigabyte GA-Z77N-WIFI
Ram - Kingston Technology HyperX 8 GB
CPU - Intel Core i5-3570
GFX Card - GTX 760

The first cooler I went with was a Noctua NH-L9I. I purchased this strictly by name and it was the only cooler I could find that was guaranteed to fit in my GA-Z77N-WIFI with out interfering with the RAM or PCIEX16 slot.

Well I was initially greatly disappointing with the Noctua because it couldn't handle the I5 3750. I had to disable turbo mode and my temps would still rise to the low 80 degrees C range when running Prime95.

So, I decided to buy the Zalman CPNS8000B. I wasn't sure if it would fit since its 108mm across apposed to the Noctua which measures in at 95mm, but it JUST barely fit. Some of the fins touch the back plate of the GPU.

After some testing, the cooler truly does rock. I currently have the i5 maxed at 4.1 Ghz (due to being a base 3750 not the K unlocked version) have the fan set to its lowest speed setting so it's whisper quite and the temps never hit the 70 degrees mark. The zalman def. exceeded my expectations, because I couldn't find any reviews online. Now I'm almost regretting I didn't the the 3750k to see how far I could take the OC.

So, in a nut shell, if you need a low profile CPU cooler and have limited space, don't hesitate and buy this guy!
