By now I'm sure that you've heard of these folks. They came into being a few years back with the goal of creating a quieter PC. But while their new cooling concepts for the processor were certainly innovative, they lacked effective cooling capabilities for the enthusiast. After all, what good is a quiet cooler to an overclocker if you can no longer overclock?
Recently, however, Zalman has entered a new arena, namely the quiet cooling of the graphics card. And to make matters even better, we took a look not long ago of their high-end ZM80A-HP VGA Heatpipe Cooler and it did surprisingly well. But that model is designed for the GeForce4 Ti series, the ATI Radeon 9xxx series, and high-end performance cards like that. What about those of us who still happen to be using something on the lower side of the performance scale?
Enter the ZM50-HP VGA Heatpipe Cooler. It is designed for video cards such as the GeForce2 MX, GeForce4 MX and Radeon 7500 series cards. So you'll not have to worry about being left in the dark if you happen to have a budget card.
But can this smaller model do as well as the big brother? Lets find out!
