Default Its Here!!

FINALLY! My Zalman ZM80D heatsink is finally here for my vid card! Super Phsyced!

Anyway, i was wondering if people who have swapped their heatsinks for the Zalman ZM80D can show me the temp drop that occured after installment?

Thanx,
Off to the store to pick it up!

Cheers-

I like my Arctic Fan and heatsink too, personally.
The Zalman's are pretty expensive.. around $50. No thanks.

Well i got it installed now. Its kinda installed wierd cause my darn video cards heatsink was slanted so the new heatsink is off the board on an angle . The temp drop wassnt signifcant either, from 55C to 42C. its not bad but i wanted a bit more.

i know im suppose to ask in the OC section but i was wondering with this new heatsink will i be able to OC the card and not have to worry about it? i know it depends on how much but i wanna know if its reliable. =\

Cheers-

I have limited experience with OC'ing, but, assuming your temps are at full-load you should be ok with slight OC.
Wouldn't hurt to put an extra fan or two in the case though.

That heat drop is pretty good... and from what I read, the temp difference is more noticable as you overclock.

Thats just what I've read though... enjoy.

Yeah that's a good drop, expisally since that's not the best cooler, but the most silent
