Zalman CNPS 10X Extreme stock temp resutls

With our Intel Core i7 test bench running stock settings we can see how the Zalman CNPS 10X Extreme performs. With the fan running at 100% the CNPS 10X Extreme did very well. Cooling the system to a nice 57.50*C, it is a full 12* cooler than stock cooling, and only 3* off of our first place cooler, the Titan Fenrir. Running the pre-set modes the CNPS 10X Extreme fell in the pack, but still did well. The Fan was quiet on the pre-set levels, but rather noisy on the manual setting.

Zalman CNPS 10X Extreme overclocked temp results

With the test system overclocked the CNPS 10X Extreme is tied in 5th on our charts with the Noctua NH-U12P single fan configuration. Running at 68*C, it is 9* cooler than the stock Intel HSF and still only 2.75* warmer than the Titan Fenrir.
