Terrible heavy load performance

Chandler m., Newegg
1 September 2012
  • Summary: Stay away, not worth the void warranty
  • Pros: Looks cool, dropped to 37c idle from 43c.
  • Cons: Terrible, with the fan turned all the way to max my 7970 reaches over 100c+ on "good" settings(SC2,WoW,BF3) even though i dropped my O.C. setting to default. The original thermal paste is a throw away (arctic paste dropped it 5c idle from stock paste), never the less that it only comes with enoug...

  • Cons: My computer is a dell that does not have a spare cpu fan plug in. The nvidia card also has 4 wire 4 pin fan connector.

Zalman support and compatibility

John B., Newegg
20 August 2010
  • Summary: If compatibility is improperly referenced at this company's home page what good is the product? Its a ZERO
  • Pros: None since it did not fit the specific graphic card that the Zalman website indicated it did.
  • Cons: When I contacted Zalman they admitted it did not fit and suggested that I purchase another card. Their response was,"We would like to first apologize for the lack of compatibility information and thank you for your interest in our VGA coolers. The VF/GV1000 are compatible with your card."
