Framework Peculiarities

Zalman CNPS9900DF is distinguished by an unusual framework. It's not a traditional vertical tower, as long as heatsink ribs feature fan-like location relative to the central axis of symmetry. Such approach provides for a comprehensive heat dissipation over all key motherboard components due to absence of frames on fans. Heat pipes embrace the cooling plates in a circle, then bend at 90 degrees, piercing the base. At first sight it seems that the framework involves six heat pipes, but …
