Fan Upgrade for Zalman CNPS10X Performa Tags: Heatsinks Zalman Fan Overclocking Product Last response: July 19, 2012 3:44 AM in Overclocking Share whitecastle July 18, 2012 6:20:47 PM Hello! I'm looking for a fan to replace the stock one that came on my Zalman CNPS10X Performa cooler. It runs on 1500 RPM when idling and is rather loud for me. It idles at about 36-40C with a 27 C ambient temperature. I would prefer a fan with PWM. Case: Antec P280 CPU: Intel i5 2500K OC'ed to 4.2 GHz GPU: XFX HD6870 ZHFC I also have a COUGAR CF-V12H as an intake fan and an Antec Tri-Cool as a "middle fan". Should I try the Cougar fan on my heatsink?

You were looking at the RPM with their resistor connected. Without it it runs up to 2000 RPM. "900 ~ 1,350 ± 10% (RC24P Connected), 900 ~ 2,000 ± 10% (RC24P Not Connected)" Related resources Zalman CNPS10X Performa question - Forum Zalman cnps9900 led vs zalman cnps10x performa - Forum Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z and Zalman CNPS10x Performa ? - Forum Cooler Master Hyper 212EVO vs Zalman CNSP10X Performa - Forum Best Dual Fans to pair with Zalman CNPS10X Performa - Forum Can't find your answer ?
