This review is from: ZALMAN VF900 – CU 2 Ball VGA Cooler
Very quiet, very effective, only one expansion slot in size
A little heavy, but I guess with that much copper that would be expected. I built a plexiglass support for it since I have a mATX motherboard and case, it was only about 3 inches off the bottom of the case.
I hate the "Fan Mate" controllers, but it's optional anyway. May re-wire them to use the fan plugs on the graphics card later, but for now, they work.
I bought two of these to replace the stock cooler(s) for my 4850x2 card. It dropped the temperatures for idle from 48/44 to 40/37 for the two cores, and the load temperatures from 78/75 to 68/64 for the two. So I'm pretty happy with that.
Make sure you mount them with the correct orientation though. I wasn't paying attention and mounted one of them rotated 90 degrees and the cooler hit the PCI socket and prevented the graphics card from seating properly.
