Zalman CNPS9700NT

Recommended Posts

I have a zalman cooler on an AM2 quad core board at the moment and im going to upgrade to intel very shortly and I was wondering if there is an adapter that I can use this same cooler on the intel board instead of buying another cooler.

I've misplaced the box that may have had all the bits in it :(

 

Any help will be appreciated!

You will see you can buy extra clips for LGA 1155, 1156 and 1366

You probably want the ZM-CS5A or ZM-CS4A

No staticice results for the ZM-CS4A but for the ZM-CS5A we have

Tell me about it, I lose track of socket types, cpu speed and especially ram speeds and gfx card models all the time.

I'd look at using a different cooler altogether. The last couple of Big Zalmans I've used. (both AMD) the retention brackets snapped after a couple years of use. To one day turn on the system, having it constantly restart, and find a big piece of copper lying on the graphics card is a bit scary.

That's interesting I suppose it's luck of the draw when it comes to things like that, I'm just trying to save money on my battlefield build!
