The CNPS12X is the largest cooler Zalman has ever made. It's more than 15 cm high and weighs a little over a kilogram. It comes with a solid backplate, so it doesn't kill your motherboard. The cooler consists of two heatsinks, connected to the CPU with six heatpipes. Zalman applies the Direct Touch method, as the heatpipes are in direct contact with the CPU. Zalman includes a little resistor you can place between the motherboard and cooler in order to reduce the noise level.
The heatsink is round, which makes the cooler almost look spherical. The dark Black Pearl nickel finish gives it a very nice look, and it has blue LEDs to top it off.
