Optimally designed aluminum fins disperse heat away from the CPU via 4 heatpipes, while switching noise free, high capacity 120mm fan quickly cools the heatsink for stable operation of high performance CPUs.
? Heat Displacement Area: 6,553? ? ‘Switching Noise’ is the high frequency harmonic noise that can result from voltage regulation.
Shark’s Fin Blade / Dual Fan Support
Optimized for maximum airflow, Shark’s Fin Blade Fan greatly reduces the turbulence caused by fan rotation, thus decreasing the noise and vibration while increasing the airflow. The heatsink is designed to mount one or two fans according to the users’ preferences.
Direct Touch Heatpipe (DTH) Base Direct Touch Heatpipe (DTH) Base technology transfers the CPU’s heat directly to heatpipes, thereby minimizing heat resistance and maximizing cooling performance.
Compatible with Mid Tower Case(180mm Width)
For optimum case compatibility the heatsink’s height is set to 152mm which ensures compatibility with case width of 180mm or greater.
CNPS10X Optima accommodates a broad range of sockets. - Intel LGA1155 / 1156 / 1366 / 775 - AMD FM1 / AM3+ / AM3 / AM2+ / AM2
High Performance Super Thermal Grease ZM-STG2M
The high performance super thermal grease ZM-STG2M maximizes heat transfer from the CPU to the base of CNPS10X Optima for intensified cooling performance.

Reviews from the Web
Below are reviews found on other web sites for this product submitted by customers.
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.

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.
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.
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.
So i bought this heatsink to replace my Antec Shelf khuler which for me, was noisy. After installing it( about 30min or less ) , i noticed about 6 degres cooler and a lot more QUIETER! finally i have found my heatsink. I want to thank ncix for the deal. If you want a really quiet heatsink n a good one, this is it !
