Better performance, easier installation!
These new additions to the famous Zalman 7000 series give guaranteed cooling satisfaction! They offer slightly improved performance to the CNPS7700 coolers and are smaller, lighter, have blue LED lighting and offer AM2 socket compatibility.
The CNPS7500 is offered in two versions - copper (CU) and aluminum/copper hybrid (ALCU). Both coolers are identical except that the CU version is heavier and offers better cooling thanks to the superior conduction of copper versus aluminum. In practice this equates to a lower CPU running temperature of around 3°C for a high-end system. If you crave the lowest possible CPU temperature then we suggest you purchase the CU version, but otherwise the ALCU version still offers excellent performance and is less expensive.
As with all Zalman’s 7000 series coolers, the unique design of the product allows not only the processor to be cooled, but also its surrounding components as shown on the image below. Important components such as the Northbridge chip, RAM, VGA and FET circuitry receive a good share of the cooler’s airflow, which increases their reliability and lifespan.
