Frostytech test out Zalman's CNPS7500 copper heatsink on the Intel and AMD platforms for us today. Good info, especially if you've already got this heatsink and want to know how it compares to Intel's stock thermal solution. Oh Frosty, where would our toasty CPUs be without you!
"The CNPS7500-CU LED follows in the footsteps of Zalman's famed 'flower' heatsink technology, and just like its predecessors provides low noise cooling. Where a 90mm fan was used on the CNPS7000-series, the 848 gram CNPS7500-CU LED has a 25x105x105mm fan spinning at 1150-2300RPM. While abundant amounts of copper have always been looked upon favorably in heatsink, it does push the CNPS7500-Cu LED pretty close to 1 Kilo. The fan is internally illuminated with a couple of blue LEDs for visual effect.
In typical Zalman fashion, the CNPS7500-Cu LED is a low noise heatsink that can be made even quieter with the use of the included Zalman FanMate 2 fan speed controller."
