Thanks to the four copper heat pipes running through the base plate, the heat quickly reaches the aluminum fins, through which a directly adjacent, quiet 120 mm fan with RGB LEDs transports the air away.

The Zalman CNPS9X Optima is a compact tower cooler with four U-shaped heat pipes made of copper. These run through the base plate in such a way that they touch the processor directly. Thus the contact surface consists of both aluminum and copper. The heat is transferred particularly quickly into the heat pipes and from there to the aluminum fins of the cooler.
The supplied 120 mm fan with RGB LEDs ensures that the heat is removed quickly. Zalman equips these with a rifle bearing to ensure smooth running and a long service life. The double fan blades minimize vibrations and increase the air throughput. The 120 fan rotates at 800 to 1,500 rpm and generates a very low background noise with a maximum of 27 db (A) with a delivery volume of 104.52 m³ / h.
On the top cover, the tower cooler has RGB lighting (12V) that automatically changes color and is supplied with power via a Y-cable from the fan connector. The Zalman CNPS10X Optima II RGB is compatible with many common sockets from AMD and Intel.
