Combined with the included thermal grease ZM-STG2M this is enough even for Intel i7 quad-core CPUs. Thanks to its copper heat sink and the three U-shaped 8-mm heatpipes the heat gets quickly to the aluminum fins, through which a direct-fitting, light 92-mm fan removed the air.
Unless the motherboard is PWM capable, its rotational speed automatically adjusts the CPU temperature. The backplate with push pins guarantee easy installation. The CNPS5X Performa is the result of sophisticated structure is not oversized and fits well in a relatively small enclosure.
The heatsink can clearly see the past as a top-down model. In addition to the narrowing fins on the back, for example, the fan replaced by one side fins to the features that were taken over from its predecessor and in the Tower League rare. For an added visual appeal two large decorative panels provide above and below the fan with cut Zalman logo.
The 92er fan so thanks corresponding PWM controlled and has a control range from 1400 to 2800 rev / min. In addition, the CNPS5x Performa a highly variable mounting system usable for many base of AMD (754, 939, 940, AM2, AM2 +, AM3) and Intel (775, 1155, 1156). Also thermal grease (ZM-STG2M) is included.
