ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler

4 out of 5 eggs PWM Fan Replacement-Mod 02/12/2012

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler

Pros: Excellent heatsink. No sharp edges. Cools OC 2500K 20C better than stock. Fits in 7" wide case... barely!

Cons: The fan that comes with this cooler is not PWM 4pin and spins at full speed all the time. While not extremely loud, it's beyond my annoying threshold.

Other Thoughts: Replaced fan with Cooljag Everflow 90mm 92mm PWM Fan 4-pin 3450 RPM case fan, F129025BU... Nipped off all but about 1/4" of two rear supports and tie wrapped it to the original motor support holes - Real easy and works well. Temp at 100% ~2C warmer. This Fan was the largest, highest CFM PWM fan I could locate. Fan measures 80mm in diameter. Idles silently at 888 rpm.

4 out of 5 eggs No PWM - Fanmate-2??? 01/11/2012

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler

Pros: Overclocked i5-2500K @ 4.1Ghz, 100% CPU, 50C

Cons: No PWM? FanMate2? Why not throw in a gas pedal? Fanmate2 by itself costs $8... PWM costs ???

Other Thoughts: I admit it's been 5 years since my last PC build. And I jumped at a "daily special" Zalman CPU cooler w/o inspecting the specs carefully. Variable speed? "Buy now". Whoops, 3 pin header! Whoops, what's FanMate? Whoops, it's on full speed all the time! WTFanMate? Given the performance, cpu runs 20C cooler over the stock Intel cooler, and the fact that specs the power consumption at 6W, I've decided to stick with it.

  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Compatible and stable.
Price competitive.
Decently packaged.
Newegg shipped promptly and arrived in 3 days (1K miles)

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Acer Aspire Revo R3610 running W7 was starved at 2GB. With 4Gb, lots of headroom, and some performance improvements. But still struggling with Wifi-N, even after upgrading from Atheros to Intel.
