Thumbs up wow I freaking love Zalman

This company never ceases to amaze me.



GPU Idle/Load Temps with stock cooler after Vf700 being taken off.

64/70 (Ouch)

GPU Idle/Load temps with vf900.

35/40


Im so Impressed. totally kicked the vf700s ***.
44/51

Im so happy. Will be doing the Pen Volt mod if I can find one instead of buying online....


Never think twice about buying from them ever, loved the cnps9500, the vf700, and the vf900 even more.


NOTE: lol I was so suprised when I first saw it...I thought it would be alot bigger but its acctualy pretty tiny

psh how dare you make a fool of my watercooling, pretty crazy though that you can keep the GPU load within 5 degrees of your idle temperatures with only air cooling though

I modded my x-qpack and put a 80mm fan on the side window, about one inch away from my video card. This case is extremely small, but airflow is great and my cpu is about ten degrees less then it was in my tsunami. I overclock it every once in a while, but then i mess with my cpu overclock and have to clear CMOS every once in a while, so im just leaving it stock. it pwns no matter what. im gonna do some volt modding and some case moddin pretty soon
