  1. Its smaller than the 9700, and has less..."cooling area". Dosent look efficient at all, also its just a "copy" of the Thermaltake V1.

    I expected just a tad bit more originality, creativity, less gimicks, and a larger cooler from then considering its been damn years since their last cooler.

    From their site...."CNPS9900 LED outperforms over 5 degrees than its predecessor CNPS9700 series and its innovative heatpipe structure will lead to next generation of the cooling......" 5c, ok not impressive, and they claim....."outperforms all other air-cooled CPU coolers as well as some internal water-cooling systems..." LOL. Right, so not only does the CNPS9700 beat the Xiggy S1283/CoreContact/TRUE according to them (since these coolers handily beat the CNPS9700 in test), but this new cooler beats some internal water solutions? Maybe a CPU, GPU, chipset and mosfet blocks all running with a single fan rad on a 790i.

    Not only is this cooler just as "innovative" as the already long pre-existing Thermaltake V1 ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835106102 ), but this is the best they could come up with after a 2 year layoff? Their last high end cooler was the CNPS9700 which came out in December of 2006. I used to be a Zalman fan owning several products in the past, but I gotta be harsh with this.
  2. Yeah you are right, but this one has 120mm fan so the performance is guaranteed to be better than 9700 which has 110mm fan. I think now the it's a fair fight with TRUE and other coolers you mentioned as they are all coolers designed for 120mm fan. Need a reliable review to confirm though.
  3. i always went with this saying:
    if it aint broke, dont fix it. zalman scored a win with their old heatsink designs and im happy they are keeping it the same. they work great for me and great for others. however, one heatsink i would love to try is the tuniq tower. i hope they make that for the new i7 socket types. mmmmm.... tuniq tower...
  4. IDK. It looks nice to me. Nice idea for the heat pipes.

    But I want to see a DTH (?) one.

    But hey 5c is actually a nice drop. That would mean my Q6600 @ 3GHz would run at 47-50c instead. Which would be nice during the summer.... in the AZ Desert....

    yea i liked the design as well tho im not sure about the heat pipes really. what heat sink are you running right now? i hear great things about the Tuniq tower and quad cores if you have the room for it.
  6. Well i just got the CNPS9500 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118004 For my phenom 9950 oced to 2.85.

    And it keeps my Quad at 28c idle and 46c load.

    And its only a 92 mm fan.

    So I know that the 9900 will be alot bigger than my 9500.
  7. genious design, much like the idea of HDT (what if they made a HDT "figure 8" designed cooler :O), but simply not enough fin surface area. no, just no.

    nice polished base though :D save you a bit on sandpaper...

    That under load with a Zalman 9700. And thats a Prime95 load too.

    The Zalman 9700 is pretty good for a quad core. Keeps it at 32c idle and even less during winter, now, when its pretty cold.
