    Zalman CNPS 7700 ALCU, Zalman VF700 review

    (Page 1 of 11 )

    Cool, fast, and quiet -- pick two, or at least, that's the way it seems when you are trying to overclock your system. Zalman offers a couple of fans that go some way towards reconciling all three. Read on to find out why these items earned our official Dev Hardware recommendation.

    These days, processors and videocards draw a lot of power and generate a great deal of heat this brings an emphasis on cooling. OEM cooling solutions often offer enough cooling to keep the system running at its rated speed and usually at a very high temperature. Most aftermarket cooling solutions offer fancy aluminum heatsinks and a loud, high RPM fan to reduce temperatures a few degrees.

    What if a company came out with a high surface area heatsink, with a large, low RPM fan? Zalman has been doing so for years. Recently, Zalman developed an even larger heatsink under this principle. Today we have their latest and greatest CPU and VGA coolers for review: the CNPS7700 and VF700.
