Another new cooler from Zalman. The CNPS16X is a model with a single tower heatsink and two 120mm ARGB LED fans in a push-pull configuration. Positioned between the CNPS17X and the CNPS10X Optima II, the new model is rated at up to 150W TDP. It has four 6mm heatpipes and the aluminium heatsink 4D stereoscopic corrugated fins to form 170 individual airflow channels. In comparison with heatsink with straight fins, this gives the heatsink 15 percent more cooling area with the same size.

The fans operate at 800rpm to 1500rpm and have a noise output of up to 29dBA. An adapter is included to connect both fans to a single 3-pin PWM fan header. Zalman provides mounting tools for AMD Socket AM3(+) and AM4, as well as Intel LGA115x, 2011(-v3), and 2066.

The CNPS16X is offered in two variants, you can get it with a black or a white heatsink shroud. The top of the shroud has an RGB LED illuminated Zalman logo. Pricing in Europe is 59.90EUR.
