Specifications, Availability and Pricing
There are a lot of things to cover with the CoolMaxx 2000, so let's dive right in. I referred to the Zalman coolers, which this CoolMaxx is larger than both of them, while weighing in at a relatively light 225 grams. Heat is transferred from the die into the plated, copper base. From there it travels out of the base through either one of the single pipes or the "U" shaped pipe then runs on the outside. These four pipes bend around 180 degrees and enter the fins section. All the fins are plated to match the coating on the copper base and pipes, but these pressed on fins are aluminum based. Speaking of aluminum, the eight RAM sinks are also aluminum that has been anodized green.
Cooling of the CoolMaxx 2000 is handled by an 80mm fan. This fan is listed at 20 CFM on ZEROtherm's website, 29 CFM on the box, and even up to 56 CFM in Newegg's specs list. With the sound levels advertised from ZEROtherm at 30dBA, I'm guessing the fan is 30 CFM, minimum. We shall see either way just how well this fan can do at removing the heat from a test card I know runs a bit warm.
Looking around the vastness of the "interwebs", I had no issue locating the CoolMaxx 2000 at many e-tailers; some better known than others, but widely available all the same. Cruising down the Google shopping listings, I ran across the ZEROtherm GPU cooler at various prices. In the middle of that pricing was where the CoolMaxx 2000 could be had for the price of $54.99 plus shipping from Newegg. With the way the economy was and in many ways still is, $55 for a GPU cooler, if it performs well, is money well spent in my opinion. I spent that much years ago for a cooler I'm sure didn't have the knowledge behind it that the past four years has developed. Let's see if ZEROtherm can convince me that I need to rethink my approach to GPU cooling in the future.
