The heatsink was announced in December, but it is not until now that it is available and preliminary work tests are being done performance that matches or exceeds the best heatsinks on the market for now. In addition, it is compatible with all Intel and AMD controllers except Threadripper, because you already know that the TR4 socket has a special size.
Features Zalman CNPS20X
|Dimensions||140 x 170 x 165 mm (outside fan)|
|The size of the TDP||300 watts|
|Hot pipes||Thumbs 8mm|
|Speed||800 – 1500 RPM|
|The sound||29 dBA|
|The flow of air||61 CFM|
This is a heatsink that as you can see boasting burns up to 300 watts of heat, it does it based on a number of new patented technologies (which we explain below) and based on the brute force in true Noctua style: the heatsink is very large and heavy, with space a large overhaul that allows management "burners" to be handled easily.
As we mentioned, this is a heatsink that gets amazing performance based on new technologies, such as the so-called «Interactive Heatpipe Design", Which is related to your plumbing system. Instead of being directly connected to the IHS processor, on the Zalman CNPS20X the heaters are located on the network which according to the manufacturer is 20 times the heat transfer.
On the other hand they put in another technology and called it 4D Stereoscopic Corrugated Cooling Fining, which also deals with the formation of aluminum wings, which, in theory, create about 350 wind tunnels that increase the airflow through which fans enter, thus increasing the surface of these heat dissipates, improving efficiency.
In the end, the fan is also special and professional Dual Blade Impeller, which contains that its stains are doubled so that the air can be operated flexibly, producing greater static pressure and also promotes better thermal degradation in aluminum barrels.
Extremely terrifying performance
We told you that the news is not the announcement of th is heatsink, it has already been sold and preliminary performance tests have begun, tests have shown that it is not automatically one of the market heatsinks, but it is questionable for the product's intolerance to still hold the top positions in terms of performance.
In the above graph you can see the performance of this heatsink against others like the DeepCool Castle 240EX or Noctua NH-D15, eliminating the heat released by the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X by doing the 7Zip test (which is appropriate as an example anyways, because it's about comparing its performance with other heatsinks).
In this test, with a 4.1 GHz processor and a lover at just 1,000 RPM, the Zalman CNPS20X is crowned the best; though I install the processor and raise its frequency to 4,25 GHz, and this Zalman heatsink looks better than everyone else, improved by 2.9 degrees the temperature of the large Noctua NH-D15. Not to mention the least.
