When I'm not watercooling, I'm usually running a Thermalright or Zalman heatsink. I would always use a Thermalright for benching purposes, but I would always use the Zalman for everyday purposes. Why? In case you have been living in another planet, Zalman has been the pioneer in the production of near silent quality heatsinks. Their flower series quickly became a fan favorite, as its "flower" design was both aesthetically appealing and performed well enough for stock clocks, and their even more popular ZM-80 series VGA-heatpipe cooler was a fan favorite due to its ability to cool with no noise whatsoever. However, as soon as Zalman introduced the CNPS performance heatsink and the newer ZM-80 VGA series with the 92mm fan and bracket, Zalman proved to be an effective solution towards both quiet computing and high performance. In particular, their CNPS series proved to be a serious contender for best overall heatsink. Today, Zalman has given us the privilege of reviewing a VGA-cooler similar in concept to the popular CNPS series: the VF700 VGA cooler.
