Default To those ATI x1900 users!

i know yuo heard this before, but I just got my zalman VF900 gpu cooler in the mail today (UPS sucks!). I have one word. AMAZING!

It used to idle around 50~60. now, not even "burned" in, 38!. Full load, before 80~110, now, 50~70. That seems high, but for an x1900xtx, it's amazing. I can't wait to see how i do in F@H now, that i'm not afraid it will overheat. It's just amazing. The fan at full speed, not even able to hear. for 40 bucks, its the best, in my opinion.

It's the best VGA cooler, for mostly all the graphic cards, except the newer 8 and HD 2900 series. I love mine as well. 35C idle, 50C load.

Have Zalman any plans for coolers for 8800 users?

At the moment there's the Thermalright HR-03 Plus (I've just ordered one)

Right now, I'm running at 52C idle with my stock cooler. Disgusting ain't it? Maybe it'll lower down even more if I get that Zalman VF900.

aren't those thermalrights, the big huge, passive coolers? I'd imagine they work, really good. But I bet zalman has ideas on the 2xxx/8xxx/9xxx series. they sure as heck would make some dough off of it.

yes... this is it
plus you need something like this to go with it if you have a GTS

I also ordered this for my C51XEM2AA
