Zalman today unveiled the CNPS10X Performa Black, a tower-type CPU cooler with a design focus on low noise. The cooler includes a unique 135 mm fan by Zalman that has a webbed impeller that guides all its airflow axially. Spinning between 700 to 1,500 RPM, with a maximum airflow of 75.16 CFM, the EBR bearing fan has a maximum noise output of just 27 dBA. The aluminium fin-stack heatsink uses four 8 mm-thick heat-pipes that make direct contact with the CPU at the base. Zalman claims that the cooler is capable of handling thermal loads of up to 180 W. With its fan in place, it measures 135 mm x 95 mm x 155 mm (WxDxH), weighing 860 g. Among the CPU socket types supported are AM4, LGA1200, LGA115x, and LGA2066. The company didn't reveal pricing.
