My CNPS9500 LED results

Thu Oct 20, 2005 8:18 pm

I have been running my CNPS9500 LED for aboot a week, so here are my results:
**Sorry this post is so crude but I was unsure how to post the log TXT file.
**Note, my mobo was previously reporting very high temps (48 Idle & 68 Load). At first I thought this was normal but the last BIOS update from Abit reviled that the monitoring interface was reporting false numbers and has since been fixed.

Test 1 - CPU Burn-in 20min

Hey firestorm02,

Thanks for the comparison. I have the same CPU as you. Is your CPU a Clawhammer like mine? I'm ordering in a Zalman CNPS9500 LED tomorrow. I wasn't sure whether I wanted to buy a Zalman CNPS9500 or a Thermaltake Big Typhoon, but I chose to go with the 9500. The 9500 seems to have similar performance to the Big Typhoon, but it is also smaller and lighter (only 530g as opposed to 813g), so I decided to go with it.

For my cpu temperatures on my stock cooler, I get:
Idle: 33C
Load (15min of Prime95): 55C
General Use: 38C

I'm hoping to get at least an 8C drop in temp from the 9500 I'm getting.

How about this one? http://www.pcper.com/article.php?aid=151&type=expert


It gives similar results to those other two mentioned above. And maybe even a bit better.

The Cooler Master Hyper 6+ is a nice cpu cooler, but I still prefer the Zalman CNPS9500 LED. The Hyper 6+ is incredibly heavy (800g without the fan). It would be even heavier than the Big Typhoon if the fan weight was included. I'm looking for a cpu cooler that is lightweight and has good performance, the Zalman 9500 fulfills that criteria, therefore I'm sticking with it.

Please let me know how you like it,I have a Clawhammer myself (3500+).Right now I have a Zalman 7000AlCu on it and runs 52 C at full load while Folding.My system is on 24/7 with very few reboots.I'd like to get on of the 9500's at some point so I can start overclocking again.

Sure thing rogue426, I'll let you know how it runs as soon as I buy it and test it out.
