ZALMAN VF3000F INTRODUCTION
Zalman certainly needs no introduction as a leader of aftermarket cooling applications for processors, notebooks, and graphics cards. With the release of the VF3000 series, high end gaming graphics cards are center stage; NVidia's 400 series and AMD's 5000 are countered with a VF3000F and VF3000A respectively. Additionally a VF3000 N was released to support the majority of NVidia's 200 series single gpu cards.
The sample we will be looking at today is the VF3000F for the GTX 480/470/465. I'm anxious to see how well this aftermarket cooler can hold up and if Zalman holds up to their promise of “Cool Innovations” or just blend in with the competition. Let's find out as we examine the VF3000F from the inside out and give it an opportunity to show up the competition.
