The Zalman VF3000A was a breeze to install, operated quietly, and provided the best temperatures out of all the cooling solutions tested. The Fan Mate 2 gets a little warm since it is basically just a variable resistor in a nice package, but it...

The VF3000 marks the first dual-fan VGA cooler for Zalman, whose past products typically incorporated a single fan into a radial fin array. Since the debut of the VF1000 the fin area has gotten progressively larger and more rectangular, taking...

The Zalman VF3000A performed well in temperature tests, equaling the PowerColor and ASUS V2 cooling solutions. Both of these cards got high marks as OEM attempts at improving upon the reference design, and the Zalman easily beat both of them when fan...

Prestandamässigt kan Zalman VF3000A bäst beskrivas med supersvenska ordet "lagom". Modellen presterar extremt bra när det gäller VRM-kylning men ligger annars och nosar runt bronsplats i de flesta tester. Kylaren sviker dock aldrig, och i...

Mit den VF-3000 für Nvidia und ATi kann Kühlerspezialist Zalman in unseren Augen leider nur bedingt an die guten Auftritte der Vergangenheit in diesem Segment anknüpfen. Zwar liefern die Entwicklungen solide Kühlleistungen für...
