Throwback Thursday: ZALMAN FX70




Only a year after the trainwreck that was the FX100, ZALMAN launched a more conventional fanless CPU cooler at CES 2014. The nickel-plated FX70 featured six 6mm heat pipes and a unique array of cooling fins. The $50 cooler was a decent performer and was surprisingly light at only 530g. Unfortunately, the FX70 was discontinued in 2017. We do think there's room for a $50 fanless cooler between the $15 Arctic Alpine 12 and the $110 Noctua NH-P1.
