I wonder if there will be a way to get QF140s without resorting to buying A80s. Perhaps they could give certain square 140mm fans a run for the money.

ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B $50

http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/zalman_cnps_9900_max_review,7.html
zalman cnps9900max-b outperforms the noctua nh-d14 back in 2010. no wonder cryorig is developing something similar. Do you think they're waiting on issuing patents, testing it, or going through mass production / manufacturing in volume?

That was a very atypical result. The 9900 was no match for the D14 in most tests. And....the mounting system was a nightmare.

Radial heatsinks were kinda more common in the old days, I remember ThermalTake having their orb series when they were more innovative than they are today. Though as far as I know the patent Zalman holds is about the looping heatpipe design which using 3 heatpipes in a loop to the base providing the same cooling surface area as like using 6 separate heatpipes in a radial fin array assembly.

Cryorigs design actually seems to use 6 separate heatpipes with curved ends matching their radial profile and their fin assembly probably works by sandwich press soldering 2 separate arrays per tower (4 total) like seen on the R1 Universal/Ultimate as this is how their so called Jet Fin Acceleration is mechanically designed and assembled in the R1.

I still have my Zalman 9900 Max, unfortunately their fastener design is poorly engineered as I had to replace them with due to them stripping the moment I apply the slightest torque to tighten them up on installation. And yes the whole mounting system is a disaster if you're trying to install it in a motherboard already installed in an enclousure. You're better off removing the board from the chassis to install it without much of the hassle.

I'm still waiting on the Z1, its probably the most interesting heatsink in a good while.

i like cryorig...but i have unpleasant experience with their HSF. So i avoid their HSF, and use their fans only...

Have to agree with ciarlatano on this one. Thermalright Silver Arrow & Cogage Arrow (basically same cooler) and NH-D14 were the very best of the very best when they came out. They are still among the top coolers today. While CNPS9900 is about the same or maybe a degree or two warmer, it is definitely not better and it's louder too. The problem with it is not being able to easily replace the fan.

Your experience is backwards to what most of use have had. The coolers are top tier while their fans move air okay, they do not have as pleasant a sound to our ears.

What was your problem with the coolers?

i have no doubt about the performance, i'm sure they're one of the top tier air cooler...something that really upset me is the mounting mechanism...maybe i'm the noob here...i just can't install that H5 ultimate on my fm2+ socket...i almost throw the HSf to the wall at the time...i've installed cooler master's and noctua's HSF but never been as difficult as cryorig's

now i just stick to what's easiest to install.....noctua...or maybe cooler master.....but i still want that C1...so sexy.

Installing the C1 drove me crazy. Installing the H9i is like falling off a log (easy). The difference was / is that you cannot see what you are doing with the C1. I ended up 'dry' mounting it and once I worked out exactly where it needed to go ... I put small sharpie marks on the C1 cooler and on the case. Add your putty, line up the marks ... bingo!
