    Anyone tried one of these, a Zalman VF3000-F for the GTX 480?

    http://www.zalman.com/ENG/product/Product_Read.asp?idx=415

    Looking for something that will make my stock GTX 480 quieter when just running windows normally for videos or internet browsing... can be as loud as it wants when playing games mind!

    So if anyone has tried one please let me know if its a good purchase.

    Thanks guys!

    There a lot less noisy than the standard 480 fan but take up a lot of room. You may need 3 slots and they dont vent the air out of the case like the standard one, but this is ok if you got a good fan removing air at back of case. I think Zotac fitted the same cooler to there GTX400 Amp version of their cards so look for a review for a GTX480 Amp edition that should give you an isea what to expect.
