It's quiet and it cools very well.

Installation was very simple and took all of 5 minutes; the instruction manual is very clear.

The fan on my Sapphire 4670 became noisy after 6 months. Since I appreciate a quiet computer, I wanted to install a quality ball-bearing fan. The VF-700 looked perfect, but the Zalman website did not say whether or not it would fit the 4670. I decided to take a chance. It did not fit because the slots in the mounting bracket did not line up with the mounting holes on the 4670. After a little grinding work on the VF-700 mounting bracket with a Dremel too, it fit. I am pleased. The 4670 stays cool at the low fan speed, and the fan is inaudible.

Installing this on my 7900GT was fairly quick and pretty painless. Temperatures on my 7900GT never went over 50c and usually idled in the 30s.

I tried the two different fan speed settings, but I didn't notice any difference in noise. Perhaps the rest of my case is too loud. You change the fan speed by plugging the fan into two different adapter plugs. One is 5v and the other is 12v.

Pros:

- Quiet, even using the 12v high speed settings

- Cools very well (my 7900GT idles in the low 30s)

- Comes with ramsinks

- Cheap

Cons:

- Tall enough to block the expansion slow directly below your graphics card

- Ramsinks are aluminum

- Ramsinks are a bit small

This is the fourth Zalman cooler I have installed and it's simply the best cooler you can get. Period.

There's no match for the ZMVF700Cu.

You want silence?

You can run the thing below 18dB. The only way you could hear any noise at this level will be if you stay close to the fan, case opened, at night and no noise from the outside at all. Combine this with a Zalman CPU HF700, and a good NPCS power supply and you will be able to have a powerful system without the need to install fans sounding as loud as the space shuttle taking of. I would like to recomend you any of Antec Neo series power supplies

You want performance?

I managed to reduce gpu temperature from 64 celsius using the stock cooler to an outstanding 36 celsius degrees!

Want the looks?

Just look at the pictures.

All in all, this is the best you can get.

Be careful, tought. You must plan ahead before you proceed with the installation if you want to fully aproach this kind of performance.

What a difference a chunk of copper makes...Granted it's a nicely polished, pretty chunk of copper. The stock cooler on my Radeon X850pe pci-e was very loud and ineffective. I didn't realize just how loud and ineffective till I installed the Zalman ZMVF700CU VGA Cooler. On a couple of occasions while gaming my games would crash. I had a feeling it was the vga cooler overheating. So I ordered this vga cooler from Amazon at a great price. I removed the stock cooler (what a joke) and cleaned off the abundance of thermal grease and the ram chips with 92% alcohol. I applied a very thin coat of Arctic Silver 5 and the ramsinks and put everything together per easy to read instructions. Read all instructions before you begin.

I had to recheck to fan connector beacause I though it wasn't working because it is so quiet. But everyhing was working just fine. After a couple of days and many benchmarks and much gaming, I must say "Wow! What a difference. Playing FarCry and doom3 at high settings was amazing...and no more crashes.

You won't regret buying this vga cooler as long as you use caution when cleaning and installing. B.T.W make sure you visit the Zlaman website to make sure this will fit your card and mobo. My system consists of Asus A8N-SLI Premium, AMD64 x2 4400 in thermaltake Tsunami and everything fits and runs great.

In their race to cut prices in an overcrowded and undifferentiated market, video card manufacturers continue to provide inadequate heatsinks on their products. Most current video cards have awful stock coolers - look around online and you'll see most people report idle (Celsius) temps in the low 60s with load temps in the 80s and even 90s. Heat kills PC components, period.

For those of us who don't need to stay on the bleeding edge by dropping $300+ every year on the latest gpu, and plan on keeping the same video card for more than a few years, stock fans are simply garbage. Perhaps even worse, most current video cards vent hot air right onto where hard drives are installed in most cases - heating hard drives is a fantastic way to kill those prematurely - and replacing a hard drive is far more painful than replacing a burned out video unless you have a completely redundant backup solution in place.

This vga cooler by Zalman is not the cheapest aftermarket solution but it's close. It's also nearly as effective as more expensive solutions (a friend using a ZEROtherm CoolMaxx 2000 reports 2-3C better cooling than my Zalman at almost twice the cost). Here are my results, on a BFG 9800GT (low power version), ambient temperature at 24C:

Stock idle: 63C
Zalman idle: 38C
Stock after playing AvP3 for two hours: 88C
Zalman after two hours of AvP3: 52C

These are with the fan set to high RPMs, using the included Zalman thermal grease. My only complaint is that the fan is not a PWM fan so it runs either low or high if you do not use the included fanmate manual controller (which I don't).
