So, at this point the only thing that is crossing my mind is why are you still here reading this, when you should be searching the net to find your very own CNPS10X Performa to call your very own. Even though it is a bit plain looking and does hit the highest dB rating tested in quite some time, there is no arguing the temperatures. Hands down, the Zalman CNPS10X Performa has taken the top of the list in cooling ability out of the box.
I know some of you are going to argue that the Noctua is quieter and really close in temps, but close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. As far as setting the bar in air cooling performance, Zalman has done just that. Now going beyond the box specs and original equipment, imagine this cooler on a pair of 38mm, Delta or Kaze, 3000 RPM monsters; the temps will only drop. On the flip side, a pair of Noctua fans strapped in a push pull can get you near silent operation with the increase of temps being a possibility. In my opinion if you are worried about noise, you wouldn't be looking at something called a Performa!
I think some of the old big dogs need to huddle together to protect their own; Zalman is now the new big dog on the streets. With the naming of this cooler I would have been disappointed to say the least to see it just be mediocre. I was realistically thinking top 5, but to see what Zalman brought with the CNPS10X Performa, it might be a good idea for some of the others to take note. Silence isn't everything anymore, with all the new furnaces, I mean processors, making it onto the main stage these days. The Zalman solution is more than capable of handling the heat in the kitchen and still keeping the weaker dogs on the porch.
