Summary: It's extremely frustrating when you NEED to use a product, but nothing goes right. I had to fit this in a computer, with very tight space. This was the perfect VGA cooler for the job, low-profile, quiet, high performance. Unfortunately, there was no way the plastic thumbscrews were going to work.
Pros: Functions okay.
Cons: *Mounting hardware too big for my application. *Wires became unattached.
Summary: This Zalman requires extra active ventilation to cool decently. I have a Lian-Li PC-V1000 (which has hundreds of holes on the front and back, for ventilation) and the video card (8800GT) reaches 60C... idling. It recirculates the same hot air.
Pros: - Looks good. Comes with nice little blue RAM heatsinks. - Comes with a dial to adjust speed.
Cons: - Doesn't cool well at all without outside ventilation. - Tightly packed fins make it easy for dust to kill air flow. - Isn't quiet on medium or higher fan speeds.
