Zalman CNPS11X Tower CPU Cooler Review

Today we are looking the newest addition to the Zalman CNPS line up, the CNPS11X. The new CNPS11X is not your typical tower cooler. With a unique color and shape, Zalman has once again added a new spin to high performance air cooling. Join us as we see how Zalman's newest twist on the traditional tower cooler fares on our Intel Core i7 test bench.

Zalman has for years had coolers that were a very nice balance of unique style and performance. The CNPS11X is no different; it has unique looks with solid performance, and does it quietly. The overall looks of the CNPS11X are nice. The Black Pearl nickel plating and blue LED fan gives the cooler some flare while not being overbearing. The new V or triangle design is definitely different for a tower cooler, which something that sets it apart from the crowd. Like the old barrel style coolers this can be spotted from across the room and you can know who made it...

Looks like a super performer but that price is just too high (at least for me).

Temp chart does not show the Zalman CPPS11X Tower CPU Cooler. Must be mislabeled? It is marked as a CNPS11X. Which is correct?

CNPS is correct. I fixed the OP in this thread to show the correct part #.

Noticed just now that Zalman announced a rebate for the CNPS11X, and the EGG has it on sale since after I wrote the article last week.

On sale for 79.99, then with the rebate drops it to 69.99.

Still up there in price, but comparable to other high-end air.

Updated the last page of the article to reflect the sale and rebate that was announced late last night on Zalmans Facebook page.
