Today I have for review one of their latest CPU air coolers, the CNPS9300 AT. Like most of their recent coolers, the CNPS9300 uses a circular heatsink design, and just like previous 9000-series coolers the CNPS9300 uses an upright orientation with heatpipes connecting it to the base. Construction is mostly copper, with only a small amount of aluminum used, and compatibility for Intel 775 and all AMD A64-based sockets is supported. CNPS stands for Computer Noise Prevention System, and Zalman uses this designation on all products designed for noiseless operation.
Can an air cooler designed to be "noiseless" really provide enough cooling for modern processors? Continue along as I aim to find out.
