Absolutely ! the original CNPS 7000Cu. The cpu die is not pure copper though, and the top of this heatsink is topped by a fan, when the original CNPS7000 had the fan within its cooling fins.

I still have one running perfectly on my dad's Athlon II x4. Think it's 7000, not sure tho.
I had CPNS-6000 back in the day. Swapped it later for a superb Tr SP-97 (first PC CPU cooler using heatpipes on the market) and it still works on my old AXP 3200+.

IIRC I had that CNPS7000 with Athlon XP 2600+, 7500 with Pentium D 805 and 7700 with Core 2 Duo E4300. All of those did their job just fine.

A 7000 would be cool (pun intended) with my Socket A test system :toast:

age old copper vs aluminum for a sink , each has advantage and disadvantage . in the end the end no matter what used if its not cooling satisfactory . like this cooler if its downdraft the wind off the fan blowing down on the chip and out across board is doing a lot of that work

take a chunk of alum. and the same chunk in copper and heat the up = cyt the heat and wait a few min. and see what one is still hot and what one is cold the copper will retain its heat not quickly dis

like I say if it aint cooling as expected or properly it don't matter what its made of . it works as advertised or it don't

for fun
Results
As expected, the traditional copper and aluminum heat sinks performed similarly

LOL at the RGB comments though. The OP explicitly says it features: "This fan features multi-color LEDs (not RGB)". Heh
ok what is the distinction? and please dont say individual LED's. For all we know this could be a PR word game.

I'm not certain... but as I understand it, LEDs (while yeah, often made up of individual bulbs) just are what they are and that's it, while RGB (often made up of some solid shape) can be any color, controllable by... something. Gee, that would really suck to have like a Xigmatek CPU heatsink, an ASUS graphics card, MSI motherboard and Mushkin RAM, all RGB, and all controlled by their own software... you'd have to have 4 bloatware packages installed just to control your RGBs... unless there's a better way. I'm not really into the whole RGB craze, so I don't know exactly how that works.

Anyways, I just thought it was funny that everybody was grumbling about RGB when the OP specifically said the cooler does not use RGB, but instead LEDs.

Seems like a silly PR stunt, to have RGBs and call it LED (not RGB). :ohwell:
