Designed with this in mind, the Zalman CNPS14X CPU cooler offers a perfect solution for professionals and overclockers seeking uncompromised performance at unbeatable price.

Comprehensive compatibility with Intel and AMD platform makes the CNPS14X an all-round athlete and effectively protects your investment.

1 out of 5 eggsSave yourself! Do not trust zalman !

Pros: Looks cool

Cons: Gets in the way of ram, pain to install

Other Thoughts: I was very excited to get this cooler. It became immediately apparent that despite being listed as compatible with my 1151 socket, the screws were not long enough. I emailed zalman requesting they send me proper screws. They replied, in broken english, that it was user error and I must have incorrectly assembled the kit. Its a CPU heat sink for christ sake. Its not hard to assemble. I ended up buying after market screws that fit. Things got worse when I filed my rebate. They notified me my rebate was rejected because (and theyre lying) I did not include my invoice. I absolutely did include the invoice. So they made a product, lied about the compatibility, refused to help correct their mistake, then lied about the rebate process to screw me out of 10 bucks. Ill never buy zalman again.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat cooling solution

Pros: Works great. Even on overclocked gaming rigs.

Cons: Not easy at all to install if the motherboard is already in your case. Not impossible but frustrating at a lot on your case.
It will block most types of RAM so it will have to be removed if you ever need to pull out your RAM. I think this is true with most large air coolers though.
It's very tall and a tight fit in mid tower cases. It actually touches my side panel every so slightly. Not bad though.

Other Thoughts: I would absolutely recommend this solution to anyone needing to cool a high powered gaming rig.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Cooler

Pros: My FX 8350 Idles at 5C under full load with Prime95 37C max temp, I had a Cool Master Hyper 212 Evo installed before this cooler and Idle was 19C and Max temp 51C using Prime 95. I have the Zalman CNPS14X cooler installed on a MSI 970 Gaming motherboard inside a Cooler Master HAF 932 case, so their is lots of air flow.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The Zalman CNPS14X installs the same way a Cool Master Hyper 212 Evo does, you have to take the motherboard out of your case to install it, you also have to remove the stock CPU mounting bracket, as long as you follow the directions you should not have any trouble installing this cooler.

5 out of 5 eggsThis thing is great

Pros: This thing took my i7 with stock cooler down a good 20 degrees, its also much quieter. Running the mprime stress test with the stock cooler could actually cause CPU temps to reach 100C under load due to AVX instructions hammering the CPU. Running this same test with the CNPS14X cooler kept temperatures under control within operating parameters (never peaking past 80C). Great improvement!

Cons: The obvious: size. This sucker is huge so make sure your case/mobo fit it.

Probably a bigger issue is the packaging doesn't protect the copper surface of the heatsink. Therefore the surface had oxidized quite a bit. Nothing a little salt and vinegar couldn't clean off (look up how to clean tarnished copper).

Other Thoughts: If the price is right, get this. It'll blow any stock cooler away. Just make sure it'll fit your rig

1 out of 5 eggsUpdate to previous review

Pros: None. Complete Fail.

Cons: The bottom plate, where the fan rests on the CPU is warped. Photographic evidence shows the CPU has a perfect layer of thermal paste, but when the cooler was removed, the only paste on the bottom plate was along two edges.

Other Thoughts: Pretty sad when the stock intel fan is 20C cooler at idle than this garbage. I have used Zalman for years but their QC has totally gone downhill. This is unacceptable.

1 out of 5 eggsNOT Worth the money at all

Pros: Looks massive. 6 heat pipes. Should work fantastic.

Cons: Does not cool properly at all. I have used Zalman coolers for years. This is the first time I have been disappointed. My CPU over heats when playing WoW. Should not be even close. I completely took the computer apart to make sure the fan was installed properly, and it is correct. Idle at 39-41C. 98C under load.

Other Thoughts: I will be replacing this with another cooler. Unfortunately it will not be a Zalman.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Cooler For OCing

Pros: Great cooler for overclocking! It's running my FX-6300 at 4.8ghz right now. Never gets over 40*C. Install was super easy. I don't understand how people can find it difficult. It took me less than 10 minutes to install the cooler, and mobo into my case. Its a big cooler, but that's required for its great performance.

Cons: The fins on the cooler around where you clip on the optional fans are very sharp. Could cut wires within your case if they rub.

4 out of 5 eggscheap, works well, difficult to install

Pros: After rebate it is really cheap. Performance is decent

Cons: Due to its size, the most difficult heatsink I ever installed, even on a brand new system. Almost as hard as changing diaper for my baby girl

5 out of 5 eggsGreat in all ways

Pros: Excellent cooling. Quiet. Attractive. Everything a wome....HSF should be. I have it mounted to an FX-8310 clocked up to 4.1Ghz on an ASROCK 970 Performance board.

Cons: It's big. Double check specs with your intended case/motherboard/ram for clearance.

Other Thoughts: One of the best coolers I have used. Fairly easy to install... make sure you read the instructions!!! If you flip the back-plate the wrong way, the bolts will be too short.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: No problem installing on Asus Z97-A once board was out.
$9.99 after promo and rebate.
Big and impressive.

Cons: Fan a little louder than I like so I took an egg off.

Other Thoughts: A steal at $9.99, would not have bought at reg price.
