There's currently a deal on the CNPS10X Optima at NCIX, 10$ after MIR. I'm looking to buy this to replace my 3570k stock cooler. I have a few question and it's always COMPARED to the stock intel cooler-what about noise? Is it gonna be louder than intel stock fan-what about cooling? how does it compare to stock cooling?-installation? how come this heavy thing will not break my motherboard or bend?
Zalman CNPS10X Optima is an excellent quiet cooling. Test results show that it is not directed at users who are looking for extreme giaithuongtinhnguyen.vns and thundering performance. Conversely, the cooler is not marketed like that and therefore it would be foolish to expect. What this cooler makes so excellent it is to combine performance and low noise, and the drawers in any way. It is certainly commendable, if it's a combination you are looking for.Innovation / Technology - 3As mentioned before in this test, then there is not really anything new to find under the sun, which is the average score also illustrates. However, using Zalman care of HDT and PWM-controlled fan, and these are the two things that pulls up.Bundle / Accessories - 3There is everything you need to install the cooler on a very extensive range of platforms and also included clip to mount an extra fan. However, what pulls down the bag of thermal paste that comes with it. It is beyond me why Zalman chose to do it this way, as there are plenty of thermal paste, but no way to save it. Spills! Give us a tube instead.Design / Layout - 5As mentioned earlier, this is a design you've seen many times before, but Zalman has simply honed and perfected the recipe, so it becomes cooler awarded full marks.Performance - 4With the target audience in mind doing this cooler really well, both in terms of noise and cooling performance. However, there are larger heatsinks where you could mount a similar low noise fan and get better performance, therefore it does not get top score.Price - 5For the very modest price of 190, - EUR, you get immeasurably cooler for money and therefore I assign cooler full marks in this category.
Test Zalman CNPS 10X Optima Cheap but effective! CNPS10X Optima Heatsink Review
frostytech"With its 120mm PWM fan rotating at the full 1700RPM, the Zalman CNPS10X Optima heatsink produces a moderate 49.9 dBA noise. If we reduce fan speed to 1000RPM, heatsink noise levels fall to whisper quiet 38.3 dBA."frostytech reviews are not the best. but as you can see not many sites took the time to review this cooler.stock 3570k,3204-13.html
