Zalman VF3000A fit on Radeon 7970?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
pretty self-explainitory....I just would like anyone's input on it if they've tried it or are going to. I don't want the Acrtic cooler because its just not the long and its $30 more when I could get VERY similar performance from the VF3000A by paying only $50 AND get 2 blue LED fans.

Thanks guys!

No. The 7970 has that shroud that prevents clean contact by the VF3000A.

Yea I didn't realize the whole shroud thing, but as damric points out, and as I saw, zalman is making a 7950 with the same cooler....makes me think they are compatible unless zalman is making a revised cooler for the Tahiti GPU, which then they SHOULD release that revised cooler separately as well.

That card is based on a rumor that Zalman itself is releasing the card. It can fit with modification, and it may be released for out-of-box compatibility, but as it stands, you need the copper plate to make the VF3000A fit.
