Desktop computer graphics cards have become more powerful than ever, and that is due to the development of higher and better GPUs. The GPU, as well as the CPU, is known for being one of the hardware components that generate the highest-possible heat levels. Working at high clock frequencies, the GPU provides a serious amount of graphic performance, thus generating a considerable heat. Because you won't need your GPU to get overcooked, you will need a reliable cooling solution.
The Zalman VNF100 VGA cooler has been manufactured to provide users with an alternative passive cooling solution to the the standard offerings of graphic card manufacturers. A passive cooling solution doesn't employ a fan in order to ensure that the GPU gets cooler, instead it uses the computer system's internal airflow. This way, you significantly lower the noise level of your system. In order to ensure a stable heat dissipation for the VGA card, the VNF100 cooler uses a combination of aluminum and copper materials. These two are known for their high thermal specifications.
The design of the cooler features a double sided heatsink, meant to ensure cooling over the surface of the entire graphic card. This way, the graphic card PCB will be covered by a heatsink cooling solution. VGA RAM heatsinks will provide cooling for the graphic card memory. There are three aluminum fins (0.4-mm thickness), meant to minimize heatsink weight and prevent excessive force on the VGA card. Both NVIDIA and ATI users will get to benefit from this cooler's specifications; it all depends on your graphic card's model.
Technology enthusiasts and extreme gamers are very familiar with the Zalman brand and they will expect nothing less than a high-quality product. The Zalman VNF100 VGA cooler was released in the first half of 2007 and still proves to be a reliable solution for cooling graphics cards.
