The Zalman CNPS9900 MAX-B combines some of the most advanced technologies in the market used for CPU coolers to create powerful cooling performance. The CPU cooler utilizes composite heatpipe which is 50% more effective in transferring heat compared to ordinary heatpipes. Combined with a whisper-quiet 135 mm blue LED PWM fan positioned between two massive nickel plated pure copper heatsinks, the CNPS9900 MAX-B is more than enough to satisfy overclockers and users who are looking for ultra powerful cooling performance in silent operation.

  • newegg Powerful Cooling Performance [Qmax: 300W] Optimally designed pure copper fins effectively disperse heat away from the CPU via composite heatpipes, while the high capacity 135mm fan quickly cools the heatsink for stable operation of high performance CPUs.
  • newegg Ultra Quiet 135mm Blue/Red LED Fan An ultra quiet 135mm fan is incorporated for minimized noise while the blue LEDs heighten the cool aesthetics.
  • newegg Black-Pearl Nickel Plating The entire copper heatsink of CNPS9900 MAX-B is ‘Black-Pearl’ Nickel Plated for long-term corrosion resistance, while the deep ‘Black-Pearl’ tone along with the high intensity blue LEDs reinforce its powerful aesthetics.
  • newegg PWM Fan Speed Control The PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) fan automatically adjusts fan speed according to the CPU’s temperature, while the included Resistor Cable (RC7P) provides the option of reducing the input voltage for overall reduction of fan speed and noise.
  • newegg High Performance Super Thermal Grease ZM-STG2 The included all new high performance thermal grease ZM-STG2 maximizes heat transfer from the CPU to the base of CPU cooler for intensified cooling performance.
  • newegg Versatile Compatibility The Zalman CNPS9900 MAX-B accommodates a broad range of CPU sockets including Intel LGA1156 / 1366 / 775 and AMD AM3 / AM2+ / AM2.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic cooler, below avg company

Pros: Works great with killer looks. Louder than I thought it would be and had to install their fan controller. Mounting isn't as bad as some say but I would never attempt to install anyone's heat sink cooler w/o removing the motherboard from the case.

Cons: The design engineers can't be happy they work for a company that seems to be so out to lunch. Many of their products are sold out and they have nonexistent customer service. I really want the red version of this fan but it always seems to be sold out. And I've been trying to buy an extra mounting kit for a CNPS9900A LED for weeks. They do NOT anwer their phones or emails.

1 out of 5 eggsClip Issue

Pros: Quiet. Looks good

Cons: Intel clips I received are not the ones pictures in the install video on the Zalman site.

http://www.zalman.com/eng/product/Product_Setup.php?Idx=416

I purchase my first 9900MAX over 1.5 years ago. I wsa getting a Fan Speed error from my computer so I purchased another 9900MAX. The Intel clips with my most recent Zalman 9900MAX were flatter than the 1st fan. I didn't want to chance anything so I used the 1st fan Intel clips. Additionally the thermal paste was very thick and hopefully it will work. Other pastes used in the past builds were a bit much "gooeyer" as not as pasty/thich as the thermal paste included in the kit.

Other Thoughts: I will be checking the temp on my processor daily to make sure the paste supplied by Zalman won't be causing an overheating issue.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat buy if your not ready for Water

Pros: Bought to pair with my FX-8350 that I ordered so I can OC a bit. Holding good temps at Stock 4 ghz under heavy load. I didn't have any issues with the install. Had to remove the Mobo since my older antec case didn't have an open backplate. I went ahead and bent the corners of the AMD brackets slightly because of the people saying the screws weren't long enough. I mounted it with the first try and was putting the mobo back in about 15 minutes. It is rather large though if you don't have a big case

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Upgraded from an Antec 900 to a NZXT H440 and this thing is beautiful

1 out of 5 eggsImpossible to install for AMD

Pros: Looks awesome, good price, mostly good reviews.

Cons: I bought this cooler along with a new FX 8320E and Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 motherboard with high hopes of keeping the new cpu cool with little effort. Little did I know the problems that would come from trying to install this cooler. The cooler uses a custom mounting bracket which is understandable from the size and weight but the screws meant to mount from the heat sink to the bracket were way too short to reach without fear of breaking the motherboard. My wife and I struggled for an hour and a half trying to get the cooler on but gave up after only getting 3 of the 4 screws on.
After that we gave up, I put the stock mounting bracket from the MB back on and used my previous Zalman flower design on within 5 seconds of getting the stock bracket back on. I would love to give this product a good review if only I could actually get it on and working to test it.

3 out of 5 eggsBad first impression...

Pros: Great looking, decent reviews, fits Corsair Vengeance C70 case

Cons: Ridiculously difficult to mount, missing screw, not the greatest instructions

Other Thoughts: This is my first build and boy did I pick the wrong CPU cooler. It took quite a bit of force to get the way-too-short screws to reach just enough to secure this to my motherboard (ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0) on an AMD FX-8350 cpu. I visited Zalman's web site today for support and I was suprised to see the mounting bracket "legs" were much more bent on their installation video for an AM3+ than what I received: http://www.zalman.com/eng/product/Product_Setup.php?Idx=416

Im not sure if I will try to bend the legs myself because this might reduce the reach and it wont match the holes in the MB. Maybe I will purchase longer screws if I can find the right ones somewhere. All in all, left me with a bad taste in my mouth for Zalman.

3 out of 5 eggsHuge

Pros: Does it's job. Pretty quiet.

Cons: Mounting this thing is very time intensive. The metal braces for the fan itself need tweaked as it sits between the heatsink fins a little wonky. The metal braces seem under built for their purpose as they were bent before I got it out of the box.

Other Thoughts: I'm ready to try a new maker of heatsinks after 11 years of Zalman in maybe 8 of my builds.

3 out of 5 eggsNEEDED THE EXTRA COOLING

Pros: I purchased this item because I had a similar item that I bought and tested on another machine......worked fine. kept the cpu running cooler during intensive use.

Cons: Most ridiculously over-engineering mounting I've ever seen. On the previous buy on a just slightly smaller unit I had no problem mounting (FM2 Socket) clipped down, no problem.
On this one I literally had to disassemble the computer to remove the motherboard to mount.........AND THIS CASE was a FULL ATX designed with changing the cooler and Heatsink in mind. This was also an FM2 Socket..... I knocked off 2 eggs because a 5 min. installation took 2 hours.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate after 4 years!

Pros: Great cooling capability, has held up incredibly well over the years, looks fantastic, still works just as well as the day I bought it, keeps an FX-8350 at 35c in a 22c room at stock speeds during full-load stress testing.

Cons: The fan can be a little loud at higher RPMs, although it may just be because it's old. It's also pretty big, so it can be a pain to install depending on how much space you have to work with. The thermal compound that it ships with isn't that great either. I'd recommend AS 5.

Other Thoughts: I've been using this heatsink in my main computer since I bought it back in 2011 and I still couldn't be happier with it. To me it really says something about the quality of this product that I've either replaced or upgraded literally every other part of my PC aside from this in that amount of time. If you need better cooling I'd definitely recommend giving one of these a shot.

At the current price I've even been kicking around the idea of picking up an extra one, just in case. Seriously.

Great job Zalman!
