Zalman CNPS9500 LED heatsink/fan

Zalman CNPS9500 LED heatsink/fan ::
Zalman made a name for itself with highly efficient CPU heatsinks that work well with low airflow — an excellent combination for low noise. Their original "flower" design was a stroke of genuis: Many thin fins clamped very tightly together along one edge, which was then machined to a fine polish to become the base. The unattached opposite ends of the fins was spread apart to allow airflow between them. At the time, it was an inexpensive way to make a very high performance heatsink. It spawned many copycats, and several other companies adopted similar designs. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but it is probably keeping Zalman's patent lawyers busy.

Say hello to my next Cpu cooler. Wicked cool looking and 30db at the highest setting...and it has blinky lights. Sweet. Check out Zalman's other products here.
