Hey guys, Anyone here had any experience using the zalman cnps9700 nt/led cooler?
The reason i ask is im getting very average cooling performance for a $100 AU cooler...
I use realtemp to read my temps and i have not had a single degree drop since swapping over from the q9450's stock cooler, which if any of you have seen is absolutely tiny. I would just drop it and say "hey its a bad cooler" but all the reviews i had read before the purchase stated it wasnt far behind the thermalright 120 ultra.
i have a feeling i may have.
i applied it very thin, it was the Zalman stuff, it usually gets looked over but its really good.
I want to apply my paste as the AS5 instructions say you should, but my paste is in a whiteout style bottle with a brush so i cant.
