Zalman ZM80C-HP Heatpipe VGA Cooler Review

16 October 2002
  • Conclusion: One of these days, ATI or NVIDIA will create a graphics card with a thermal probe. I don’t know why they don’t now since temperature monitoring provides a good indication on how well a product of this nature performs. During installation, I relied on the manual to guide me through the assembly, but I did have to refer back to the page with the actual sized pictures of all the small components.
  • Pros: Included Phillips screwdriver!, Easy to install, Clear and concise manual, Includes two sizes to accommodate most video cards with mounting holes, Good cooling properties
  • Cons: Generic thermal paste, Optional 80mm fan may not work with all configurations

Zalman ZM80C-HP

8 September 2003
  • Summary: We shall today take a close look at a new revision of an earlier popular cooler from the famous company Zalman. It is their latest graphics card cooler, ZM80C-HP. The earlier version is named ZM80A-HP, and you can read a review of it here. The difference from the earlier cooler is among other things that you can mount a fan on it and make this cooler active, what you benefit from this is to be found out during this review.
  • Pros: + Very silent
  • Cons: - No RAM heatsinks, - Pretty expensive, - Occupies one PCI slot

  • Summary: Une question se pose alors : Où est l’intérêt d’investir dans une tel type de dissipateur si l’on revient finalement à utiliser un ventilateur ? A cette première question, beaucoup diront d’abord qu’un ventilateur 8 cm sera certainement moins bruyant que ceux placés d’origine. En suite, tout le monde ne roule pas forcément en GeFORCE FX 5900 Ultra ou en RADEON 9700 ou 9800 Pro !
