The Zalman CNPS9900 MAX-R 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 red LED PWM fan positioned between two massive nickel plated pure copper heatsinks, the CNPS9900 MAX-R 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 Red LED Fan An ultra quiet 135mm fan is incorporated for minimized noise while the red LEDs heighten the cool aesthetics.
  • newegg Black-Pearl Nickel Plating The entire copper heatsink of CNPS9900 MAX-R is ‘Black-Pearl’ Nickel Plated for long-term corrosion resistance, while the deep ‘Black-Pearl’ tone along with the high intensity red 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 CNPS9900 MAX-R accommodates a broad range of CPU sockets including Intel LGA1156 / 1366 / 775 and AMD AM3 / AM2+ / AM2.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great cooling. Great price. Unique look.

Cons: Not being made anymore?

Other Thoughts: I purchased the last CNPS9900MAX Newegg had, and I doubt they'll be restocked. I feel privileged to to own a Zalman cooler before they're gone (forever?) Thank you Zalman for an awesome cooler; I hope you continue to release new and innovate products for many years to come.

4 out of 5 eggsLarger than it looks but still great!

Pros: Works very well and is easier than some CPU coolers to install.

Cons: The back mounting bracket bolt restrainers (c-clamp like things) can be a bit difficult to attach.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet with good performance

Pros: Keeps my I7 4790k nice and cool (avg 31c). Quiet, nice looks, and does not crowd anything on the motherboard (asrock z97m killer)

Cons: Installation is tricky due to the size of the fins.

Other Thoughts: This thing is huge, you'll want to make sure you have room for it in your case. Definitely install on the motherboard before putting it in your case; you won't be able to attach it once the motherboard is installed.

Some of the reviews complain about the magnetized Alan wrench. This should not be a concern, as magnets don't damage solid state computer components when there is no current going through them. Keep the wrench away from your hdd and you'll be fine. The magnet is necessary as the holes for the bolts are tricky to get to.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product

Pros: Fantastic performing heat sink, I have this sitting on my AMD FX8350. MB/Case details below

Stock settings
Rest: ~1C + ambient
Load: ~18C + ambient

OC - 4.4 GHz @ 3.6vcore (medium LLC)
Load: ~ 24C + ambient

Great numbers as compared to the stock cooler that comes with the AMD cpu (rest +8c/+40c at rest/load which is close to AMD's recommended thermal limit.

Price performance is good but not great unless you get it on sale, then it's just epic which is what it is for me.

Cons: Fan doesn't make a big difference in cooling temperature when you consider the amount of noise it makes. From silent to full blast there was only a difference of 3C and that was with all my case fans on full blast as well. That being said, not a big con as I'll take a 3C hit for some peace and quiet. The cpu sits ~45C at load which is well under AMD's recommended thermal limit and thats fine by me.

Other Thoughts: Motherboard: Gigabye FX990A-UD3
Case: Antec 900 2-120mm in, 1-120 back, 1-200 top)

5 out of 5 eggsGood for the most part.

Pros: The cooler cool efficiently. I have an amd8 6300 overclocked to 4.5gh and it does not rise above 50 degrees c during extensive stress testing.

Cons: The fan is not the quietest but hey, its no noctua. would be nice to make the fan clip mountable for replacement. The mounting systems is also not the best, and could use a lot of work. was not that easy to install.

4 out of 5 eggsKeep CPU cool, hard to install

Pros: cool, good air flow for the upper part of the case
25 degree when idle
50~55 when load

Cons: Hard to install
included screwdriver is bad

Other Thoughts: Light is so dim, I wonder if mine was infected or not?

4 out of 5 eggsL.oV3.d b_y J3.s_us

Pros: Lasted for 2 years--I wanted to make a mention of it here.

100% Copper. It cools my 3.2 GHz (stock) Phenom II 1090T Thuban overclocked at 3.8GHz. I don't care about super low voltage and temperature--as long as it's stable and max possible overclock.. and it is, for 3.8GHz, at least, for this particular processor.

Cons: Fan is failing after 2 years of operation. I am planning to replacing it with aftermarket 'standard' squarish fan by sliding it in the gap and securing it with plastic zip-ties.

Other Thoughts: My fan is starting to make noise after 2 years of operation. I would have to replace it and I am planning to remove the old one with it's bracket (it's a non-standard fan) and install in the slot between the fins a regular (squarish) 'normal' 120mm fan and attach it with plastic zip-ties to the fins/heat-pipes. I have had similar product from zalman before and it's fan also failed eventually. Their fans are flimsy but look nice. This particular heat-sink is bigger than others and has a rather large inner chasm that could accommodate other type of fans inside of it (for the DIY person's interest.)

4 out of 5 eggsnice look; difficult mount.

Pros: terrific look. solid copper with nickel plate.
offered with rebate.

Cons: very difficult to mount.
rebate application has not arrived at rebate processing hdqtrs. not sure what happened.

Other Thoughts: I had to jimmy-rig the cooler to get it to mount on my fm2+ socket. I used the original back plate and black screws. this mod. did not allow me to regulate the tension I put on the board as I tightened the screws. I gave them a "few good turns" and then checked behind the mobo to see how far they were protruding out of the back plate. I know, not very scientific or exact but I was determined to use this beautiful cooler with my new build.
everything seems to be working fine however I probably cannot recommend this for amd installs. I read that intel installs went smoother but I found the screws and brackets that were provided for amd fm2+ to be unusable.
as for the rebate, I sent 3 rebates on the same day, at the same time, to the same address. I was notified that 2 had been received and a few days later I received a courtesy email reminding me to submit the third that I had completed via the internet.
I will look into re-filing if it is possible but am not too angry about it. $20 is $20 though.
overall I am satisfied with this product.
