I found problems with your review. You tested the VF3000A, on a nvidia card, when its only compatable with the 5830, 5850, 5870 reference card.
The VF3000N, is for the 200 series cards.

I think you should redo this test, using the Vram on the proper card. Too many people are going to get confused.

Kalec,
The VF3000A is not incompatible with nVidia cards. Is is optimized for those ATi cards, but this only means that the VRM transistor heatsink is made for this cards.
As we did not install the auxiliary heatsinks, this did not affect the test results.
Cheers,

I think one problem is that Zalman doesn't provide any compatibility information other than that it's optimised for use with the Radeon HD5800 series...
