CONCLUSIONS AND AFTERTHOUGHTS
When Zalman and Fatal1ty team up, you expect some special results. The FC-ZV9 graphics card cooler combines good cooling performance, great looks and wide compatibility into a product that any gamer would be proud to have in their case. The nickel plating and red LEDs give it a distinctive look that many folks will find appealing. The price, however, may deter some potential buyers. While availability is good at online retailers, the FC-ZV9 will set you back around $50. Similar performance can be had for less money, but some users may find that the look and prestige factor of the Fatal1ty cooler outweigh the cost premium. You can't deny that the fit and finish is excellent, the performance is quite good and Zalman support is second to none.
