    Having released the 120 mm copper monstrosity, the CNPS9900, Zalman is looking to give the NVIDIA-branded CNPS9700-NT an update, only this time, there's no NVIDIA branding to be seen. The CNPS9900-NT is decked with nickel-plated copper, which gives it the chrome appearance. Between the two copper-fin blocks, is nested a 120 mm green LED lit fan, which gives the same illumination as the older NT versions of Zalman's coolers. It measures 94 x 131 x 152 mm (LxWxH), and weighs in at 730 g. The fan spins at speeds between 1000 and 2000 rpm. The cooler supports all current CPU socket types, including LGA-1366, LGA-1156, LGA-775, and AM3/AM2(+). It packs a tube of the company's ZM-STG2 thermal compound. When released in Europe, it is expected to sell for 70 EUR.

    i love the colour of the cooler in the second pic - would go very nicely with a green EVGA x58 mobo.

    I am very pleased with my version (CNPS9900 LED). Clearance - more clearance... I can use all my mem slots, also easily clears the chipset heatsinks on the motherboard. It mounts easily and temps are better than I had with four other coolers... 41 to 43 idle(depending on room temp) and ran two hours on prime and never broke 59.

    All this and no slashed fingers!:)

    I would recommend this to anyone for an air cooled system.

    I'll be getting this unless it's outrageously priced. Love my 9500. The nVidia versions look super sexy too!

    All AM2/AM2+ CPU coolers are AM3 Compatible, they have not changed the Mounting Bracket design.

    Wow, I remember the 9700 NT from 3 years ago.

    Only question now is - what's the next one going to be called. Although, two numbers up in 3 years.. I think they have some time to decide.

    Saddest thing is.. these used to be the flag-ship coolers on the market. They are completely pwned by Thermalright.

    The sad thing is, the original 9900 gets beat by 30$ coolers from Xigmatek and gets obliterated by Noctua and ThermalRight. Why make a more expensive version that will perform the same??

    Right, that's what I forgot to say. My fault.

    It's because now Zalman is not/no longer wants to be competing in the high-end tier. This cooler is budget oriented.

    And if for some reason the price is not right.. then maybe Zalman went crazy. I won't blame them.. Zalman used to be the name for the best coolers back when I was starting out. It's sad.

    OFF TOPIC: And for the love of God, get that ridiculous statement out of your sig. TJ is as respected a member of the Atheist community as any good man, but he's got iron in his heart, and I love Nickelback. Don't get me wrong. I talked to him.. he's a nice guy.

    Looks like a swell cooler and I'm hoping it will preform really well, course, there I can't use it for my rig...

    Please take it up with the member this is directed towards in a private message. There is no need for this in a thread of any kind.

    No, I want this to be out in the open. What's with the hate of Nickelback, huh?

    I'm bored so:

    I don't really get it either. Their two first albums were ok at the time. They were a bit rough, and I for one believed they would evolve to a good band, but they stayed exactly the same. I have no idea how many albums they've released, but sometimes I hear something new on the radio and it sounds exactly like everything else they've done.

    Also, I think the Nickelback-hate grew into a meme.

    What exactly does Nickelback have to do with the Zalman CNPS9900-NT? Maybe because the cooler has Nikel plating so somehow Nikelback relates?

    Had the 9700 NT for 6 months, it was really nice and quiet. Hope this is a worthy successor...
