CES 2011 - Zalman

On our last day of CES 2011 we had the chance to check out the Zalman suite where they were showing off their new product lineup for 2011. We've taken a look at quite a few Zalman products over the years and its always interesting to see what they are working on.

Zalman is probably best known for their CPU coolers, and they've got a few new products that they've just announced.

The CNPS9900 Max is a new cooler being shown off and is an updated version of the CNPS9900 LED (our full review of the CNPS9900 LED can be found here).

Zalman was also showing off some of their "budget" coolers that they will be selling in 2011 which included the new CNPS7X LED cooler.

Zalman was also showing off some of their "budget" coolers that they will be selling in 2011 which included the new CNPS7X LED cooler (pictured below, left).

Also being shown off was Zalman's new lineup of hard drive enclosures. Both models that were shown to us feature a LED screen which will help show you how much room is left on the drive as well as transfer speeds. On the more expensive model you can also use the LCD screen to mount a .iso file which can then be used to boot your computer off of (or have it act as a virtual drive). Zalman has definitely taken a little different approach to the hard drive enclosure but these features set them apart from most of the other enclosures available now.

Also being showcased was Zalman's lineup of SSD hard drives. Zalman has a N-Series and a S-Series which feature different controllers (N-Series has the SandForce controller and S-Series has the JMicron controller). Both series feature drives up to 128GB (the S-Series will eventually be available in a 256GB version).

More information on the S-Series SSD's can be found here.

More information on the N-Series SSD's can be found here.

The S-series of SSD's from Zalman now feature a USB 2.0 connection which will allow you to quickly connect your SSD to your computer without having to hook it up to power and a SATA connection.
