Over at OCAddiction they have reviewed the Zalman CNPS6000-Cu Heat Sink :
OCAddiction is putting the heat to the new Zalman CNPS6000-CU. With a design that was initially looked at as a “novelty” at best, Zalman has been turned it into a respectable cooling solution. What we wanted to know is if they are continuing to offer the quality, and more importantly the performance with each new design. The results may surprise you, and surprises aren’t always a good thing.
Here’s a quick snip from the review…
“The 92mm fan that comes packaged with the heatsink is rated to run very quietly. In normal mode, it only produces 33dBA. In silent mode, it produces a measly 20dBA. There was no real point in running the fan in silent mode as the normal mode is already pretty much silent. I could hardly hear a thing. I think my power supply was louder than the heat sink fan.”
