Zalman CNPS 20LQ Review
Up Close: The Water Block
I'm always a bit of a sucker for a nice bit of engineering and especially over engineering. With no less than 14 bolts holding the pump head together, and an additional 10 bolts securing the faceplate to the pump housing the 20LQ certainly gives the impression of being well engineered and well put together. Now if only highly reflective polished copper was easier to photograph.
The water Block face plate comes with it's own little plastic clip on cover which serves to protect the contact surface as well as preserving the pre applied coating of TIM. The pump is powered by means of a 3 pin fan plug which can be attached to your mobo or straight out the 12 supply from your PSU via a molex adapter.
