People who have purchased Radeon HD 2900 series graphics cards will without doubt be constantly bothered by noise from the cooler, while those who own Nvidia’s 8800 series are far more likely to be happy with their heatsink/fan combination. Still, there are always improvements which can be made to cooling solutions and even if performance remains the same, the addition of an aftermarket cooler can take a reference design card and make it more attractive. Ideal for case modders.
Today we are taking a look at one of Zalmans latest graphics card coolers, the VF1000 LED and professional heatsink (ZM-RHS88). We will be installing the products on an 8800 GTS card to see just how well they cope with one of Nvidia’s high end models.
