Zalman VF-1000 put to the test: the Arctic cooling killer for graphics cards

Introduction

Zalman is still a big name in the refrigeration industry - but this image is drawing more and more from the successes of the past. The products of the Koreans continue to be very promising, but in addition to an outstanding qualitative implementation, the performance and, above all, the volume have hardly been above mediocre. When it comes to air-based processor coolers, the Asians have one of the most technically complex and visually extravagant designs in their own ranks with the CNPS 9700 , but when it comes to performance, the competition has long been ahead. And even with the graphics card coolers, the former spearheads VF-700 and VF-900 no longer see any land against the growing host of adversaries.

For Zalman, it is high time to step up. And at least in the area of ​​the GPU cooler, it doesn't look so bad with the protagonist presented today. The VF-1000 is supposed to fix it and for the first time in a long time it moves away from the nice to look at but no longer contemporary Zalman fan unit design. High-quality copper, generous shapes and four heat pipes are supposed to bring success back and knock the recently crowned king of graphics card coolers, the Arctic-Cooling Accelero S1 , from the throne. We'll show whether it's successful in the test.
