Introduction

The CNPS10X Performa is another cooler from the CNPS10X family from Zalman. It has a tower heatsink with five heatpipes, and a 120 mm fan. Let’s see if it performs as well as its brothers.

We have already reviewed two coolers from this family, CNPS10X Extreme and CNPS10X Flex, and they both proved to be good coolers, so we expect good performance from this one.

The CNPS10X Performa box is cardboard, with no openings or windows, as you can see in Figure 1.

In Figure 2, you can see the box contents: the heatsink, fan, manual, installation hardware, a case sticker, and a small bag of thermal compound.
