5 out of 5 eggsUsed on HD4850

Pros: Fit an old Visiontek HD4850 PCI-E card

Cons: Fan doesn't connect to the card - instead to the motherboard (with a small internal fan controller).

Other Thoughts: I bought one of these to replace a dead fan on an Radeon X1950 Pro AGP... Worked perfectly... Tried the same model on an HD4850 and it works well. The only issue I had both times is with the "silver" memory heat sinks... The thermal tape does not always "stick" very well... Be sure to clean your memory chips first!!! They should be "gold" to match the main fan. It should go for half the listed price in my opinion...

5 out of 5 eggsWORKED GREAT ON 5670 2GB

Pros: kept it cool! kept the noise down, blue color light was a plus.

Cons: cleaning after 6 months was a nightmare, recommend a super soft long bristle paint brush, compressed air, a vacuum, and plenty of patience.

Other Thoughts: recommend using with filtered case.

2 out of 5 eggsFrustrating.

Pros: Functions okay.

Cons: *Mounting hardware too big for my application.
*Wires became unattached.

Other Thoughts: 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.

After a filing disaster, I decided to source my own hardware. I emailed Zalman asking for the thread size, zero response. So I got out the metric ruler. Trips to hardware stores, electronic stores proved fruitless, too large. Ordered some specialty parts online, they ended up being too small. I eventually figured out what size was good, through this trial-and-error process. It's M2-0.4 nuts in case you're wondering.

So, more waiting (had to order them online). They get here and I'm ecstatic. It's over, I can finally use my heatsink. Just as I'm sitting down to mount the thing, I notice two of the wires (white,red) are now unattached. The final black is hanging by a single metal strand in the braid.

No problem right? Just open it up and resolder. Well, the leads are covered in a silicone paste, and I can't seem to completely open the assembly to get to them anyway.

I yanked the final wire.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear valued customer,

We sincerely apologize for the issue. Please contact our customer service e-mail support.usa@zalmanusa.com or via toll free number 1-888-925-6266 for further assistance.

Thank you.

Best regards,

Zalman USA Customer Service

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome fan

Pros: I installed this baby on my old Geforce 8800gt. This video card used to get to ~60 degrees when idle, but now it idles at 42 degrees! Super quiet too, have owned this for a couple of months and no problems so far.

Cons: A little bit pricey and the controller is somewhat unnecessary.

Other Thoughts: None.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat replacement fan for old cards!

Pros: I have this cooler installed on an reference-design HD 4770 whose fan died unexpectedly. It has brought my temperatures down by 20C under load!

Even at the highest fan setting (via the included fan controller) the unit is infinitely quieter than the stock cooler and inaudible over the sound of the push/pull setup of my CPU. Its allowed me to keep my old 4k-series workhorse around a bit longer!

Cons: The official compatibility chart needs to be updated with more modern mid-range cards--this thing will definitely fit cards from the HD 5k/6k/7k series, as their 4-post cooling setups are identical to the one used on my 4k series card.

Other Thoughts: All that said, I'd be skeptical about using this cooler with anything more than a 4850/5830/6850/7850, as their TDP and wattage requirements under load are much higher than the 80W of the 4770. I tend to run around 45C under load. I guess it depends on how toasty one likes their hardware to run.

Sum: I'd buy it again!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat quite fan

Pros: This fan is great, pure solid copper feel, but still light weight. I changed my fan out because the original one was so loud. I used arctic 5 for paste and seamed to work great. After an hour of came play copper fan was still at room temp.

Cons: Make sure you check the clearance of the fins to adjacent PCI slots. Otherwise it was hitting the PCI slot and not fitting into the slot needed.

3 out of 5 eggsNot perfect

Pros: Affordable, makes extra space since it's smaller than stock coolers. Brings idle temps down to ~32c.

Cons: Zalman FanMate stuff is garbage. 3 coolers, none of them seem to work with the controller. I end up plugging them into the mobo aux fan ports and control them via the motherboard utility. Worse, however, is that it didn't bring load temps down much at all; I'm still burning at ~65-75c depending on the game (Tribes, LoL, TF2, BF3, SC2, etc).

Other Thoughts: Have this on an old GTS 250 1gb. Solid cards. Saving up for a GTX 6 series or Radeon wahtever.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible heavy load performance

Pros: Looks cool, dropped to 37c idle from 43c.

Cons: Terrible, with the fan turned all the way to max my 7970 reaches over 100c+ on "good" settings(SC2,WoW,BF3) even though i dropped my O.C. setting to default. The original thermal paste is a throw away (arctic paste dropped it 5c idle from stock paste), never the less that it only comes with enough vram heat sinks for 2gigs. I've had zalmans in the past that i was more than pleased with but this product let me down.

Other Thoughts: Stay away, not worth the void warranty

5 out of 5 eggs8800 GT new life

Pros: Installed easily onto an old 8800 GT. Idle temp dropped from 60c to 42c. Very quiet.

Cons: Wish it was cheaper but there is a $15 rebate (hopefully).

Other Thoughts: Worth the price to give new life into my old card and pass to my son's first PC.

5 out of 5 eggsAMAZING!!

Pros: This fan is absolutely amazing! The install was very easy and very quick, took me about 10mins. I installed this on to my GeForce 9600GT

Stock Fan
idle - ~65C
heavy gaming - ~98C

Zalman VF900
idle - ~32C
heavy gaming - ~46C

Unbelievable! Plus it was at the lowest RPM ( Silent Mode)I would most definitely recommend this fan! I wouldve gotten the Zalman VF1000 but its not compatible with my 9600GT

Also the led light was pretty cool and it took about 3 days to deliver

Cons: So far nothing.

Other Thoughts: Awesome AWESOME. My other fan mightve been dirty but i dont know that differences is pretty amazing.

Plus it came with a fan control (Fanmate2).
