    Zalman CNPS7000A-AlCu Review


    (Page 1 of 6 )

    What if we could have one heatsink with great performance, low (or no) noise output, was light, looked good, and was priced reasonably? This might just be the case with Zalman's new 7000A-AlCu heat sink. Read on to see if it's time for you to upgrade the cooling solution in your computer.

    With Intel Prescott and AMD Athlon 64 becoming more and more popular, the need to keep CPU heat under control has become a major concern. And while retail solutions provided by Intel and AMD work just fine, they are satisfactory at best. Aftermarket CPU heatsink/fans range anywhere from $10-20 to upwards of $50, and are usually better cooling solutions than the boxed cooler. Every user is different, and what heatsink is right for someone depends on a series of factors, such as performance, noise, weight, aesthetics, cost, etc.

    What if we could have one heatsink that combines the best of every category? Something that performs well when we want it, can also be quiet and still maintain proper cooling, fits specification, looks good, and is affordable? Up to date we have had very few heatsinks of this nature. One of them happens to be the unit we're reviewing today: the Zalman CNPS7000A-AlCu.

    Zalman

    Zalman is a company that specializes in quiet computing. They first made a name for themselves with their "flower heatsink" design. These heatsinks were very unique and stood out immediately in the cooling world. The flower heatsinks alone were fanless, so included were fan brackets to add active cooling. This method of cooling the CPU was quiet and fairly efficient.

    Zalman's latest heatsinks, the CNPS7000As, a revision of the CNPS7000, is an orb shaped hs/f. Once again Zalman has created a unique line of CPU coolers, and today Dev Hardware will look at the CNPS7000A-AlCu provided by QuietPC.
