Zalman’s CNPS10X Performa gives you the flexibility to install another 120mm fan for added cooling potential. Also incorporated in the Performa are 5 heatpipes, optimized fin profile and heatsink structure for the best performance. Differentiated from typical U-shaped heatpipe coolers, a central band of rippled aluminum fins adds a sleek and cool aesthetic finish. The CNPS10X Performa comes with high performance thermal grease ZM-STG2M, PWM fan speed resistor cable and features universal Intel and AMD socket compatibility.

 

 

  • newegg Dual Fan Support The heatsink is designed to mount one or two fans according to the user’s preference.
  • newegg Powerful Cooling Performance Optimally designed aluminum fins disperse heat away from the CPU via 5 heatpipes, while switching noise free, high capacity 120mm fan quickly cools the heatsink for stable operation of high performance CPUs. (‘Switching Noise’ is the high frequency harmonic noise that can result from voltage regulation.)
  • newegg 180mm Wide Case Compatibility For optimum case compatibility the heatsink’s height is set to 152mm which ensures compatibility with case width of 180mm or greater.
  • newegg High Performance Super Thermal Grease ZM-STG2M The high performance super thermal grease ZM-STG2M maximizes heat transfer from the CPU to the base of CNPS10X Performa for intensified cooling performance.
  • newegg Versatile Compatibility The CNPS10X Performa accommodates a broad range of sockets including Intel LGA 1155/1156/1366/775 and AMD AM3/AM2+/AM2/754/939/940.
  • newegg PWM Fan Speed Resistor When connected to the resistor cable (RC24P), the input voltage of the PWM Fan can be adjusted to control the fan speed and noise level according to user preference. Quiet Mode (RC24P Connected): 900~1,350RPM / 17~24dBA ±10%; Performance Mode (RC24P Not Connected): 900~2,000RPM / 17~36dBA ±10%.

Mounting for 1366 Socket is a PAIN 1/17/2017 6:06:42 AM

Pros: Cools the CPU

Cons: Only knocking 1 egg off for this. Mounting on 1366 is near impossible. The amount of tension needed to get each screw to grab on to it's thread is kind of scary. After getting it mounted I took a look at the screw alignment with the bracket threads and there is a slight angle where the screw meets the bracket. This does not please me as I now suspect that I have cross threaded them.

Overall Review: I know that 1366 is a dinosaur, but it is my media pc and my 6+ year old Corsair AIO cooler needed to be replaced (simply because it was 6+ years old, not because it stopped functioning, I know....I'm probably messing with things too much...)

Fan is a little loud
Temps aren't that great, I don't think it is making good contact with CPU.
Going to have to remove to check for contact issues, and I think if I remove it I will not be putting it back on but instead going with another cooler.

Piece of trash 8/1/2016 8:34:52 AM

Pros: PWM fan

Cons: Instructions are incomplete, small, and flat out wrong
Double stick tape is useless
Fins are sharp resulting in spilled blood on my MB
Mounting screw heads stripped out
Allen wrench 1.5" too short
No shipping protection on the heat plate
Does not provide clearance to remove low profile memory once installed

Overall Review: 2 hours after opening the box, I threw the whole thing in the trash. Stay away from this piece of trash. Personally, I will never buy anything from Zalman again. I just placed an order for a Noctua cooler; though more expensive, I have never had a problem with their products.

Missing AMD hardware 8/30/2015 5:18:35 PM

Pros: It's a heatsink, would work on an Intel without issue.

Cons: Like other reviews the AMD hardware wasn't bent like it shows in the picture. The clip to use on the stock motherboard mount was MIA, even though it was pictured. I was unable to use it on the computer.

Forgotten 6/14/2015 8:33:40 PM

Pros: Good paperweight.

Cons: It never worked. Bad mounting, Unstable.
Cpu was hotter then stock cooler. The fan was probably too slow.

Overall Review: I ended up using my stock heat-sync and putting my own 6k rpm fan on it, stays really cool.
I had totally forgotten about this heat-sync that I had bought until I reviewed my order history.

WRONG BRACKETS 2/16/2015 9:37:29 PM

Pros: none....should have read other comments before I purchased.

Cons: Does not come with the right brackets to fit Athlon processors...even though it states it will fit...Do not buy. was sent this after return...Unfortunately, the below item(s) was physically damaged and beyond the applicable Newegg.com warranty coverage as indicated in our Standard Warranty Policy.
Wish I could type everything but can't do to the review guidelines
The thing is I already purchase a 35-103-099 CPU COOLER CM| RR-212E-20PK-R2 R which will fit...will just take the loss and toss the zalman i the TRASH...beware!!!

Overall Review: Will rethink buying from New Egg after this experience .

Zalman CNPS10X Performa CPU cooler. 2/2/2015 12:38:24 AM

Pros: Sale price, rebate, free shipping.
Very good cooler, I own a pair and a handful plus of Zalman coolers.
This one, 5 tubes, 10 locations, bring hot air into the cooler. One piece bottom works better than separate tube or "direct contact". Have proved it.
Compact, fits most Mid Tower cases.
Fan sits low on the cooler, helps cool areas on the mother board, example: North Bridge.

Cons: ZERO!

Overall Review: Zalman's paste is pretty good, I have found that Antecs Formula 7, Nano Diamond, is better. Newegg has it here.
Good for 5C less in temps.
My first generation i7 W3565 (i7 960) idles at 23C, loaded @33C. My 930, 2 940s and 2 950s are within 1C of this. All have Zalman coolers. My i5 systems do well also. It speaks for itself.
