Pros
Cheap
Performance/Price
Cons
Mounting system could be better
The fan is touching the RAM
Summary
Got it at 13$ after MIR so I'm pretty satisfied for the performance/price. The installation is not too hard but the back plate mounting could be better. It's a little big for my motherboard (Gigabyte Sniper M3) as the fan is touching the first DIMM.

Pros
Great cooling for the price
Cons
A little difficult to install / Take your time!

Summary
I would definitely recommend this fan as it dropped cooling down on an AMD X3 chip by 10 degrees. System was running at 47 degrees with the stock fan but as soon as I switched it to Zalman's copper cooling solution the system is now running at 36 to 37 degrees after several hours.

A few points to mention:

1) It has a large 120 MM fan - so ensure your case has enough room both length wise and close to the memory banks or installation can be difficult

2) I found the instructions provided all over the place and not very easy to follow. You tube the installation of this fan on a motherboard (either AMD or Intel) for quicker set up.

Great fan, great price and great overall result...

Pros
Low price, 120mm fan with low noise, easy installation, well package.
Cons
Little Big (be sure you have enough room), Mail In Rebate
Summary
Bought this for 14.99 after MIR and at that price you can't go wrong.
I don't like the fact that Zalman MIR are prepaid credit card. I prefer a check.

The installation was easy for a LG1155 socket. But be sure to have an open area in your case to see the back of your motherboard unless you want to remove everything to do the installation.

Pros
Good Price
Good cooling
Quiet fan operation
Good solid mounting system
Cons
Can be difficult to mount
may be too large for some cases
may block RAM slots
Summary
ordered this cooler and I'm quite happy with it
this is definitely one of the better mounting systems
you can use unfortunately you have to remove the motherboard
to install this cooler.

the good thing about this is the cooler is very well secured
and will never fall off accidentally and will have good mounting pressure to your CPU giving that little extra cooling.

My Phenom 955 temperatures after installing this cooler with a room temperature of 29 Celsius my CPU idled at 34c and the full load temperature was only 52c with prime 95 running a stress test on all cores an excellent result in my opinion especially due to the warm temperatures that day 29c with the humidity 34c I can't really comment on the fan noise as I have five 120 mm case fans installed running at approximately 900 to 1200 RPM the fan is definitely quieter than the stock fan that came with the CPU as I cannot hear it and now my system is pretty much silent.

if I need a cooler again and this one is on sale I would definitely pick it up as it does the job quite well.

some things you'll want to keep in mind with this cooler also is that it is pretty large and almost touches my window on my
Zalman Z9 Plus case you will definitely want to check your measurements around the CPU socket as mine was a pretty tight fit.

Pros
Price when on sale
Build quality
Easy of installation
Cons
mail in rebate
Summary
I bought this to put in my server case but it didn't fit. I changed my system over to this case since I several and it fit well on my desk. I use it with the top off the case. Its about 5mm to tall. I have to learn to measure better. I found it to be easy to install and seems to built good. I am not going to overclock so it keeps the CPU at a good temp. and is fairly quiet. When on sale for $18.99 with a $10 mail in rebate makes it even better. I hate having to wait about 2 months to get the rebate. I have mailed in several rebates and always get them.

Pros
Very impressive performance, outstanding value when on sale. So much better than stock AMD cooler.
Cons
Can be tricky to install.
Summary
When this product is on sale, it's a no-brainer. The Hyper 212 seems better if this is at full price ($30). But if there's a sale on this BUY IT.

CPU: AMD Phenom II 965 w 3.4 GHz 1.344 vcore (reading in CPU-Z)

Stock Cooler: Idle 36-38 C, Load 55 C(also quite noisy)

CNPS10X: Idles damn near room temperature, Load 39-40 C

Couple of things, I've been testing at full load for around half an hour and the fan speed hasn't changed at all. It doesn't need to, in other words. Another thing, I touched the heatpipes at the base (beside the CPU) and they only felt a little warm. Seriously impressive performance. At stock speeds it seems like this thing could run as a passive cooler. Not that you'd have to, the fan is very quiet.

There are some negatives though. It is a little tricky to install, and you do have to install a backplate. It doesn't make use of the existing AMD bracket, and it has to be screwed into the new backplate. You have to hold the screwdriver at an angle, and it can be difficult to get it completely screwed in. The fan clips are also a bit finnicky. On my motherboard, (M5A97 Rev 1) the fan covers a RAM slot, so if you have tall RAM, you might run into issues. Also, it's a big cooler, so make sure your case has room.

-Cheap price
-Keeps CPU very cool and quiet
Cons
-N/A
Summary
I bought this for a friend and it keeps his Core i7 2600k at 20-25 degree idle and it is very quiet with the stock fan. Nothing to complain about it.

Comment: The Zalman CNPS10X Optima heatsink is a very good thermal solution at stock fan speeds that puts out moderate but acceptable noise. At its reduced fan speed, the heatsink is very quiet but descends into good-to-average thermal solution territory.
