Zalman ZM-RHS1 VRAM heatsinks not blue?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I just got these heatsinks for when I transition to watercooling my 5870s with universal XSPC blocks, but in all the product pictures on store websites, it was always blue. I got them as the normal aluminum colors, so I'm a bit disappointed, but it's really no big deal to me as I won't be seeing them. Has anyone ever gotten non-blue versions of this?

The ZM-RHS1 does come with Zalman blue or silver colour.  These are the 2 stock colours.

See 'Technical Details' here:- http://www.amazon.com/Zalman-VGA-Ram-Heatsinks-ZM-RHS1/dp/B0009YIJ2I

 

These little heasinks also come in red when they are supplied with other Zalman coolers.

Eg VF3000A (http://www.zalman.com/ENG/product/Product_Read.asp?Idx=385)

Eg Fatal1ty FC-ZV9 (http://hardwarelogic.com/articles.php?id=5199)

 

The discontinued Zalman ZM80D-HP cooler also came with silver colour heatsinks.  (This leads me to believe the silver color is the original color and the blue is added later on).

 

Lastly, Zalman states that the difference is the color only and does not affect performance.

See 'FAQ' here:- http://www.zalman.com/ENG/product/Product_Read.asp?Idx=136

 

I hope these info bring some consolation to you.

Wow thanks for taking the time to find all that info. +rep I did know that the difference was only in color and not performance, but I wanted them blue as it's part of my color scheme.
