Zalman CNPS9500 LED

The Packaging

Similar to the Zalman CNPS9500 AT, the LED version comes in the same cardboard box with two plastic windows. However, it also comes with a plastic strap at the top, which serves as a handle.

Again, this box offers good protection against damage during delivery, but it's still a good idea to add some padding as the cooler is heavy and relatively delicate (thanks to its copper construction).

Like the CNPS9500 AT, the specifications are listed on the left side of the box, while the key features are listed on other three sides.


The Contents

Inside the box, you will find a small box containing the accessories and a plastic box shielding the heatsink.

You should find the following items within :

  • One CNPS9500 LED cooler
  • One tube of thermal grease
  • One fan speed controller (FAN MATE 2)
  • One FAN MATE 2 Cable
  • One double-sided tape (for attaching FAN MATE 2)
  • One manual
  • One S-type clip
  • One L-type clip
  • Two Socket 478 clip supports
  • Two Socket 478 installation bolts
  • Four cooler installation bolts
  • Four Socket 775 bracket bolts
  • One Socket 775 bracket
  • One Socket 775 backplate
  • Two Socket 754/939/940/AM2 nuts

Again, we like this kind of packaging because it's easy to open and everything's so organized. You can also pack it up again should you need to resell this cooler.
