The Y-shaped Zalman CNPS5X Performa CPU cooler has a full 170 watt TDP despite its compact size. In combination with the enclosed thermal paste ZM-STG2M, this is even sufficient for the Intel i7 quad-core CPUs. Thanks to its copper cooling element and the three U-shaped 8 mm heat pipes, the heat reaches the aluminium slats quickly, through which the air is carried away by a directly adjacent, quiet 92 mm cooler. As long as the Mainboard PWM is capable, it automatically adjusts its rotating speed to the CPU temperature. The backplate with the push pins guarantees easy installation. The CNPS5X Performa is not oversized thanks to its carefully thought-out construction and therefore fits into a relatively narrow case.
Powerful Cooling Performance Three heatpipes and aluminum fins are designed for maximum cooling while cooler setup quickly expels hot air out of the case.Ultra Quiet 92mm Fluid Shield Bearing Fan An ultra quiet 92mm fan with FSB bearing is incorporated for minimized noise and excellent cooling.PWM Fan Control The PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) Fan automatically adjusts fan speed (RPM) according to the CPU's temperature.Easy Installation The cooler is designed with tool-less installation clip, making installation convenient.High Performance Super Thermal Grease ZM-STG2M The included all new high performance thermal grease ZM-STG2M maximizes heat transfer from the CPU to the base of CNPS5X for intensified cooling performance.Versatile Compatibility CNPS5X accommodates a broad range of sockets.
