The slim ZALMAN CNPS8900 Quiet offers ultra-quiet cooling for low profile cases. An ultra quiet 110mm PWM fan, two Direct Touch heatpipes and aluminum fins combine to deliver efficient heat dissipation to keep your CPU and peripheral areas cool. Broad socket compatibility makes it suitable for almost all the mainstream motherboard platforms.

  • newegg Powerful cooling performance and quiet operation Two heatpipes and aluminum fins are designed for maximum cooling while switching noise free, down-blowing 110mm fan minimizes noise and cools not only the CPU but also provides powerful peripheral cooling. Moreover, the fan eliminates switching noise* for ultra quiet operation. (*switching noise is the high frequency harmonic noise that can result from voltage regulation).
  • newegg Direct Touch Heatpipe (DTH) Base DTH technology transfers the CPU’s heat directly to heatpipes, thereby minimizing heat resistance and maximizing cooling performance.
  • newegg Slim Profile The CPU cooler’s height is 60mm and designed to be installed in ATX cases as well as slim or LP (low profile) cases.
  • newegg Versatile Compatibility CNPS8900 Quiet accommodates a broad range of sockets including Intel LGA1155/1156/1366/775 and AMD FM1/AM3+/AM3/AM2+/AM2.
  • newegg High Performance Thermal Grease High performance super thermal grease ZM-STG2M maximizes heat transfer from the CPU to the base of CNPS8900 Quiet for intensified cooling performance.

2 out of 5 eggsNot sure who this is supposed to cater towards...

Pros: -Pretty
-Low Profile

Cons: -Way too wide, hits DIMM slots
-May break the motherboard installing it
-Installation brackets dont allow it to seat correctly

Other Thoughts: Not sure who this heatsink it designed for. The low profile implies it fits in thinner cases, which usually only hold micro-ATX or mini-ITX boards. This implies a tight configuration of components on the board which usually means the RAM is close to the CPU. If you are using a full size ATX board, you most likely dont need a low profile heatsink anyway.
Just 1cm taller at the base and this COULD be a really nice heatsink. This would have probably fit with low-profile RAM, to be fair. I feel like this is an example of the worst of both worlds. It is so wide it requires a spacious ATX board to work, but it is low profile to cater to the small form factor computers. You cant use it in a small mobo because of RAM clearance, and you can use a better larger heatsink for the same price on an ATX board....
I cant say if it was quiet or not because I could never install it to find out

2 out of 5 eggsAn extremely frustrating experience

Pros: Very quiet

Cons: - Extremely wide, blocks the furthest DIMM slot on my motherboard and makes it very hard to get a screwdriver to the mounting screws
- Impossible to tell if you have it secured well enough, the screws don't like to line up to go through the mounting holes and strip very easily
- Skimpy on the amount of thermal compound in the box.

Other Thoughts: I can't recommend this and I'll be returning it for something that actually works in my new rig.

2 out of 5 eggsDecent CPU Fan, Not the Worst, But Far From Being the Best.

Pros: - Overclock Friendly, the fan delivered stable temperatures to the cpu
- Fits in slim cases
- Good quality, I like the copper heatsink that surrounds the fan
- Definitely quieter than a stock AMD fan

Cons: - Extremely difficult to install on AMD Motherboards, the provided screws fails to reach the provided backplate, The installation was only possible using a spare backplate.
- Several clearance issues (cannot use slots 4 and 2 for memory sticks), If you plan to use all four RAM slots, please do not buy this fan
- Despite being advertised as "quiet", the fan still happens to be loud, not just in use, but even in idle, based on my experience.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Absolutely None

Cons: Poor design, poor documentation, just junk spent half a day to find out this was a nightmare. would not work I have 20+ years of building computers and have never seen such poor design. Zalman start over completely. You should clearly warn this cannot be done by one individual and should only be attempted on a motherboard before installation into case, and wow what poor pictures.

1 out of 5 eggsImpossible to install

Pros: Zalman
None

Cons: Zalman
I purchased this because of the name Zalman. I used there products for years and they had good products and if there was a problem there was a phone number to get support but not now I’m sending it back and using the CPU fan that came with CPU.

Other Thoughts: .
There CPU was there strong point so think how bad there other products are.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for MATX builds!

Pros: Low profile, quiet, cools surrounding components, cost effective.

Cons: Included thermal paste isn't the greatest, but this is a review for the cooler.

Other Thoughts: This was purchased as the ASRock 970m requires a top down blower when paired with an FX-8350 in order to cool the tiny 4+1 VRM. This cooler when configured with proper airflow keeps CPU at 32 idle, 50-55ish under load, and the board in the 32-42 range. Very quiet, overhangs the VRM nicely to provide additional cooling support to surrounding components. Blocks off one RAM slot unless used with low profile ram, but I knew about that when I ordered it, so I'm not going to ding it on that.

5 out of 5 eggsQuality, Quality , Quality and Quiet!

Pros: Works well overclocking a hot running old Q6600 i scavenged. Very quiet and way cooler temps then the stock cooler. Fits within confines of an mATX mother board and does not extend out at all, its better then stock in every way. Also the build quality is phenomenal, look at all that copper!.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsSFF winner

Pros: got this cooler to stuff in the Asrock M8, its got a Z87/97 Mobo, so I picked up a K-series processor for my build. Even in this thermally challenged SFF case I've seen a 10°C drop under load (70+° down to 60° max).

Cons: The mounting hardware does not include anything to stop the retainer nuts on the bottom from spinning during install, not worth an egg off, just be prepared.

4 out of 5 eggslooks like I am limited to just 24 gigs of ram

Pros: terrific performance, really, hands down, fantastic, I can overclock the blitz out of my CPU (it is an a8-7600, but still) and it won't break 34 degrees C even with 2 massive Firepro V5800's in my tiny case going full blast

Cons: it does intrude into the RAM area so I can't use the rear most RAM slot, the backing plate would not remotely close to work to mount the cooler, I ended up using the plate that came with my motherboard and figured the rest of it out with the included hardware of both the motherboard and the cooler kit

the wire for the cooler seems bizarrely long for what it should be

4 out of 5 eggsFantastic!

Pros: Excellent cooling, low fan speed- runs quiet and very cool.

Cons: Low Profile design can crowd RAM if RAM has cooling fins (like mine). This is the only thing keeping me from giving 5 eggs.

Other Thoughts: I'd buy another one in a minute....in fact, I think I will!
