Zalman CNPS9900 MAX CPU Cooler

The CNPS9900 MAX is more like the design that most enthusiasts associate with Zalman: the barrel shape with fins in a radial pattern and a center mounted fan. The whole cooler is copper with a black nickel plating that Zalman calls the “Black Pearl Finish”.

The CNPS9900 MAX has two sets of fins with the fan mounted in the center. The heatpipes run through the center of the fins and an accent ring on the outer edge helps keep the fins from bending.
