The Zalman CNPS9900 MAX CPU cooler is a decent CPU cooler. It’s got good looks with the nickel plated design and blue or red LEDs for the fan, but I was sort of surprised to see the results of the testing. It’s been a while since I last reviewed a Zalman CPU cooler and quite frankly I was expecting more cooling performance it. Then again you have to take into account its rather small design and only single fan cooling.
The cooler can be purchased at your favorite online retailer for around $79.99. This is pretty expensive for a CPU cooler that really doesn’t have the greatest cooling capacities. Overall Think Computers awards the Zalman CNPS9900 MAX CPU Cooler an 8 out of 10 score.
- Relatively small design
- Black-Pearl Nickel Plating
- Red or Blue LEDs
- Sub-par cooling
