The Zalman CNPS 8000 cooler is designed to keep your processor cool in slim or low-profile computer cases, like those used for home-theater PCs. A set of four copper pipes quickly draw heat away from the copper base and redirects it through the dense array of aluminum fins. This design not only makes the unit lighter in weight, but allows for heat to be more rapidly spread.

Attached at the top of the assembly is an ultra-quiet 92mm fan just 18dBA when spinning at 1,400rpm. The included Fan Mate 2 control module lets you effortlessly slow or speed up the fan depending on your activity. Slow it down to silent mode when you're watching a DVD or speed it up when you're gaming.

With the included brackets, the cooler will work with Intel LGA 775 CPUs (including Core 2 Duo, Pentium D, Pentium 4, and Celeron D) , and AMD 754/939/940 K8 CPUs (including Athlon 64 X2, Athlon 64 FX, Dual-Core Opteron, Athlon 64, Opteron and Sempron).

Works good when installed correctly 7/17/2010 6:48:27 PM

Pros: Does it's job; cools my i7 down several degrees cooler than the stock cooler. Also small form factor allows for placement in a sff case with limited overhead.

Cons: The installation manual is somewhat misleading. It suggests that for a LGA 1366 (i7), the loader block is not required. However, without this block, the cooler didn't have good contact with my CPU and temperatures soared to the dangerous 100C mark.

Overall Review: Use the loader block even though it's not required for a LGA 1366 mount. Oh, and use arctic silver 5 instead of the goo zalman gives you of course.

Great Cooler! 6/4/2010 2:06:10 PM

Pros: Can be used on AMD and Intel CPU's Small enough to be used in a mid-tower case easily. Can be installed without removing the mobo (AMD only) and can be controlled manually or by the bios. Replaced stock cooler that ran hot under load 55C+ Now runs in the mid 40'sC

Cons: Kind of tricky installing the fan clamp to the mobo but other than that a breeze to install.

Overall Review: CPU: AMD PhenomII X4 940BE overclocked to 3.4ghz

CNPS 8000 5/30/2010 1:03:56 AM

Pros: Cools well, very silent. Another great Zalman product.

Cons: Its a nice low profile cooler, maybe a little to low! I have a Asus P5E3 WiFi Deluxe, X38 MoBo. Very tight clearance, because of the chipset coolers that are larger than normal on the MoBo. I think it could be a 1/4 inch higher, and still be a very low profile cooler. just my opinion. I did get to work, its just a tight fit.

Overall Review: I have always had good luck with Zalman products. they do their job well

Very pleased with this fan! 5/25/2010 7:07:40 PM

Pros: Very quiet fan, and well built heatsink. Was pleased to find that I didn't loose access to any components on my Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H. And I was also quite suprised and please to find out that it just barely fit in my Antec NSK1380 MicroATX case. As Borat would say.. "Very nice!" - Keeps the CPU about 10 degrees cooler and about 40db quieter then the stock fan/heatsink provided by AMD for the 955.

A definite upgrade from the original fan and a must have for tight/small cases running HOT processors like the 955 where you need a quiet solution but great cooling as well.

Cons: Emm, I'd say the biggest con is the way the clamps attach to the heatsink. They slip and slide quite a bit, making it a bit of a struggle to get it clamped down and seated properly. Not quite as nice and simple as the clamp mechanisms on stock fans. I had to reverse the two clamp pieces from the way they suggested installing it, because the clamp was being blocked by the northbridge heatsink. Once I did this, I was able to clamp it down without any issues.

Clamps great once you get past that small hurdle. Seats fine as well.

Overall Review: Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H
CPU: AMD X4 Phenom II 955 BE
Case: Antec NSK1380

A Zalman in Every PC. 5/10/2010 8:05:27 AM

Pros: It fits on a Zotac GF9300/GE board almost perfectly. The fins push down on the Zotac name plate sitting on top of the Northbridge heatsink, I considered trying to pry the cap plate off but thought better of it. Dead silent when running at slow speed, and that's with the case opened. Very easy install on top of an Intel Celeron E3300.

Cons: noisy at max RPM

Overall Review: Almost the size of the ITX board and it still fits!! The fan blows on the Northbridge heatsink and offers some circulation. If you pry off the Zotac name plate, the heatsink fins will interleave. From the base of the case to the top of the Zalman cooler measures about 3-1/8 inches.

Good Cooler 1/19/2010 12:31:03 PM

Pros: Compact Heatpipe Design, Cools Good And Quite. Dropped Idle Temps by 8 degrees and load temps by 10 degrees on a Phenom x3 720 with 4th core unlocked with stock speeds. Temps now are 30 idle and 38 Load running fan at 1700 rpms. going to OC when I get my RMA'd PSU back :( Fits on a ASUS M4A785TD-V no issues. Didn't have to remove Mobo to Install/Remove

Cons: All Copper would've been nice but cools good anyway.
Tricky to get the Clips to latch on a AMD mobo.

Overall Review: Fits on a ASUS M4A785TD-V MoBo without blocking any Ram Slots. Just rotate Cooler 180 degrees so the heatpipes face the rear.

All in All a great cooler for compact Cases. Cools well, Quite.
Would buy again.
