The flower evolves

FrostyTech reviews the Zalman CNPS7000B-Cu, a cooler very reminiscent of the old flower coolers, with an added 90mm fan in the center. Also like the old series, performance and noise are balanced, not sacrificing extra performance on one side for a penalty in the other.
"The Zalman CNPS7000B-Cu is assembled from dozens of individual copper fins, joined together at the
center by compressing the metal under great pressure and bolting the entire assembly in place. This is
Zalman's famed 'flower' heatsink technology, and it offers a unique way of constructing coolers with
very direct thermal pathways from the heat source. After all, each thin copper fin makes direct
contact with the processor - there are no base plates or heat spreaders used on the Zalman
CNPS7000B-Cu heatsink. At the center of all of this a 90x90x25 mm fan which spins at 2600RPM and
generates only a moderate amount of noise. "
