Zalman is taking another dive into the world of water cooling with the CNPS20LQ water cooler. The CNPS20LQ is a closed circuit water cooler for the LGA2011, LGA1155/1156, LGA1366, LGA775; AMD AM3+, FM1, and AM3/AM2+/AM2 CPU sockets. The unit itself is made by the well established OEM supplier Asetek and then branded by Zalman, note Asetek also make water cooling for Intel so you would be hard pushed to find a difference between this water block and the one Intel sells.
The radiator contains a small reservoir and the block contains a pump. This is all powered from standard 4-pin CPU power header and supports PWM control. The two parts are connected by flexible tubing while the block features a copper base with pre-applied thermal paste. The radiator is pre fitted with a single 120mm fan but you can use a second fan for a push pull configuration. The radiator measures in at 120 (W) x 158 (L) x 25 (H) mm and the whole unit will cost €69.90
