Zalman VF950

Zalman VF950 Review

Introduction

To keep up with the latest hotter and faster graphics cards, Zalman have needed to update their VF900 – which we reviewed back in May 2007 – with the VF-950. They haven’t just changed the cooler to support more recent graphic cards though; the new model is entirely different. We hope so too, as we weren’t very impressed with the VF-900. Anyway let’s not dwell on the past, introducing the Zalman VF-950…

  • Excellent ultra quiet cooler for video cards
  • Pure copper heatsink base and heatpipe “W-Bending” technology
  • VFP (Variable Fin Profile) ultra-thin fins minimise airflow resistance
