Zalman VF3000A VGA Cooler

OverClock Intelligence Agency
21 October 2010
  • Summary: The VF3000 marks the first dual-fan VGA cooler for Zalman, whose past products typically incorporated a single fan into a radial fin array. Since the debut of the VF1000 the fin area has gotten progressively larger and more rectangular, taking advantage of the full length of most high-end video cards surface area. With other manufacturers also using this design, like the Thermalright T-Rad and Thermaltake DuOrb , it is good to see Zalman finally adopt the same strategy.

Zalman VF3000A VGA Cooler

Benchmark Reviews
20 October 2010
  • Conclusion: The Zalman VF3000A performed well in temperature tests, equaling the PowerColor and ASUS V2 cooling solutions. Both of these cards got high marks as OEM attempts at improving upon the reference design, and the Zalman easily beat both of them when fan speeds were low. At full fan speed, the ASUS cooled down the GPU about 4C lower, but at a horrible cost in noise. The Zalman excelled in the noise department, both in volume and tone.
  • Pros: Very quiet design, Excellent cooling performance, Improved MOSFET cooling, Top-grade TIM is included, Quality construction everywhere, Lower weight than some competitors-430g, Combined fan wiring with tach output, We love red anodized aluminum
  • Cons: Wider than standard dual-slot coolers, Crossfire compatibility issue on some motherboards, Not readily modified with different fans, Loss of automatic fan control

The set of memory and VRM transistor heatsinks is not as complete as the one we found with the , but does the job cooling them, because the fans push air into the board.
