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.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY!!!

Pros: NOTHING

Cons: The fan will not mount on any system. The screws are too short. The copper piping blocks a ram slot even if it was low profile.

Other Thoughts: This company needs to be sued. It's a massive waste of 40$.

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,

Zalman USA Customer Service

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Small, well built and decently quiet. It barely fits on the Maximus VI impact though it does touch the VRM heatsink. I had to pull the heatspreader off the ram closest to the HSF. 78C on a 4770k @ 4.4ghz.

Cons: Uses a funky adaptor on the fan wire, having this does allow you to thread the wire through the heatpipe but it also gives you something to lose.

Other Thoughts: Seriously worth it for the Impact as it actually fits.

5 out of 5 eggsFits well on an m-ITX setup. Quiet in general.

Pros: Clearance above the DIMM well designed, low profile (comparable to stock cooler) to fit in small m-ITX case. Quiet on low settings.

Cons: The diameters of the fins-heatsink are larger than the base plate holes, meaning if the CPU socket is close to the edge of motherboard the heatsink extends beyond the edge, which can be a problem in certain case. Also if the RPM is hight (e.g. 1500 rpm) the noise is fairly audible. Below 1000 rpm it is fairly quiet.

Other Thoughts: In my case (Cooler Master Elite 130, with ASROCK Z87E-ITX motherboard), the installation of this cooler would actually force the removal of the included side 80mm chassis fan. Otherwise, fits my purpose well.

5 out of 5 eggsbetter than expected

Pros: Easy to install. Superior cooling. Very quiet.

Cons: So far I have not found anything to complain about.

Other Thoughts: Was rebuilding a micro atx case unit and wanted better cooling. Old unit was in the 50s and 60s with an i5 ivy bridge with stock cooler and Arctic Silver 5. Switched to a Lian Li case (V351B) with a micro ATX mobo. Switched to MX-2 thermal grease. Great temps. So far range from 26 to 40. Was worried about fit but made it with room to spare and memory with heat spreader installed as well. Would buy again.

4 out of 5 eggsWon't fit in mini-itx!

Pros: Not really sure because it won't fit. Gave it 4 stars because I couldn't test it.

Cons: Will not fit gigabyte h77n-wifi mini itx mobo with pci-e video card installed. Its short enough to clear the power supply in mini itx case with power supply above the mb but hangs over into the pci-e slot so no pci-e video card can be installed. Will have to go with a 90mm or smaller low profile fan for this board.

2 out of 5 eggsManual Is Difficult to Understaand

Pros: From what I've heard it's really quiet. Keeps the CPU cool.

Cons: It was impossible to get it to fit on my motherboard. It took me about an hour and a half to actually understand how to put it on my AM3+ Socket. When I finally finished with my whole build, my CPU Cooler didn't turn on. I replaced it with the original CPU cooler that came with the processor and that CPU Cooler did work. What a waste of $40.

Other Thoughts: I regret buying this, very dissapointed for my son's first build.

2 out of 5 eggsDecent CPU Cooler

Pros: Far quieter than the stock AMD Cooler.
Copper pipes.
Copper base.

Cons: The fins aren't copper, just copper plated.
Blocks access to the motherboards first ram slot.
Doesn't keep the CPU any cooler than the stock AMD cooler.
Pain in the rear, to install. Took a second person just to hold the back plate and motherboard, while I wrestled with the cooler. The screws are miss aligned with the large cooler, had to use a screw driver from an angle.
Didn't come with a case badge (just nit picking, there).

Other Thoughts: It's a good cooler and all, but I'm debating returning it, since it blocks a ram slot on the motherboard. I'f the motherboard had 4 ram slots instead of 2, it wouldn't be that big a deal.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Quiet, nice low profile. I don't have an unlocked CPU, but I wanted a quiet replacement for the stock fan. This definitely works as advertised. I've set the fan speeds so that it remains at the lowest setting and my cpu hardly reaches 50 C, even under heavy load in a small, hot case.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat cooler !!

Pros: Quiet (have never heard the fan)
cool (no OC here so temps stay low)
inexpensive (sale and rebate help)

I originally bought one for my server (C2Q) to replace the previous model CNPS8700 that I used in my previous HTPC for years. Just bought another and put it in my current HTPC connected to PWM. Again I don't have either OC'd so those complaining of noise may need to rethink.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: Not a con, just an oversight on my part. my server had plaenty of clearance room being a standard ATX but I have to get low profile RAM for the HTPC being a micro-atx with slots closer to the cpu.

Running a Core i3 3220T @2.8Ghz in the HTPC and a C2D Q9500 @2.83Ghz. Both churning along happily.
