New Zalman Cooler

Recommended Posts

Guest Blooz1

Anybody seen this new Zalman CNPS9500-LED cooler yet?

 

LINK

 

"Figure-8" heat pipes - think it'll work as they say? Price is steep, but there's obviously a lot of work gone into it!

it will probably be a great cooler comming from zalman, something for all those who like quiet cooling anyway. personally, my performance:quietness divider is currently set at 10:1

That was MY first reaction - $75 for a cooler?

 

If you stop and think about it, a whole lot of labor must go into manufacturing this thing! I can't see it being assembled by a machine.

I have seen that cooler, and as soon as it come out i will purchase it, as i always seem to go with zalman for my cooling solutions (air anyways).

I am sure it is made to rival the xp-90c

Yea, but that Z is $75 & the XP-90 is only $25! :shake: ($30-$40 with fan)

sure this 75 will decrease very much as soon as every online reseller will have it

 

so don't judge on its price now

I'm sure that you are correct, it wasn't all that long ago that XP-90's were selling for $59.95! :nod:

its a good looking cooler probably works as good as xp-90, but I think with the XP-90 aircooling has hit its ceiling. I think anything over 40 for aircooling is pushing it... :nod:

Zalmans are things of beauty; the only reason I got a window side panel for my case was so that I could look at my pair of Zalman VF700-Cu's :D .

 

This "Zalman CNPS9500-LED Aero Flower Cooler, Copper " is beautiful too, but I'm not going to race out and buy one to replace my utilitarian XP-90 :) .

 

This thing weighs half a kilo, and some of that weight is 125mm away from the board that it is attached to. That is a little too much leverage on the board (in a tower case) for me. If I had a desktop case, I'd get one (once the price became reasonable) :nod:

 

Just my $0.02 :cool:

 

cheers,

I agree that the weight this thing needs to be taken into consideration. It does look sweet though. I love getting new toys for the rig.. I replace things that work fine every six months or so. LOL I am getting a deal on a Danger Den setup from a friend so water cooling may be the next toy soon. That xp-90 is hard to beat if you get it set up right with the proper thermal paste, lapping etc etc.
