(Auszug aus der Pressemitteilung)

Toulouse, on the 10th of June, 2009 – Zalman breaks with the tradition and proceeds with a radical change inthe design of its new CPU cooler. The CNPS10X Extreme is a perfect association between innovation, performance and design.


CNPS10X Extreme
Revolution, innovation, performance and design are the key words that best define the CNPS10X Extreme!

Breaking the habits as regards design, the Zalman CNPS10X Extreme was designed around a heatsink with aluminium fins „tower-shaped“. Five 6mm „U“-shaped heatpipes cross the heatsink connected to a nickel copper base.

Real concentration of performance, Zalman went further and equipped its new cooler with the world first PWM regulator. This new technology enables the users to further balance the relation performance/noise of the 120mm which is included with the CNPS10X Extreme.

Symbol of all the know-how of the brand, the CNPS10X Extreme is one of the best coolers currently available on the market.

Features of the CNPS10X Extreme:

Revolution: the release of this new cooler marks a radical change in Zalman’s habits, as the CNPS10X Extreme benefits from a „Tower“ design, contrary to its predecessors.

Innovation: the PWM Mate which is located at the top of the heatsink (it can also be installed outside the case) is the world first system which enables to manually adjust the PWM regulator of the motherboard and thus perfectly monitor the fan rotation speed.

Performance: the nickel copper base, the five 6mm „U“-shaped heatpipes (alternated from the inside to the outside) that cross the nickel aluminium fins and the 120mm fan enable the CNPS10X Extreme to offer extremely high cooling performance.

Design: the „Black-Pearl“ finish of CNPS10X Extreme and the fan blue LEDs give him a modern and sober look, that will fit any configuration.
