plz opinion on zalman gpu cooler......
the cooler i have been considering is the

zalman vf1000 copper vga cooler.

i dont overclock but i would like my temps a little lower than the idle of 50 deg C that they are now. outside air temp is approx 28C.

the card is an asus bb00gt with of course zero control over the fan speed.

any thoughts on this or another active cooler appreciated

I'd look at Thermalright or Arctic Cooling. Both make amazing heatsinks.

bb00gt? B is not supposed to be there, should be a number...

If yur talking about an 8800GT then use the Vf-900 Cu cooler its smaller and theres a review i posted of it in the members review and silent. Then again if you have the money and do not wish to add on to sli then get the zalman cooler Vf-1000 their both awesome coolers. But id rather have the smaller cooler and its pretty cheap right now.

thx for the info.

and yes, its supposed to read 8800gt.

V1000 should be more than enough for that card. Some even say it can handle an 8800GTX

You could go with this: http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...ctic%20Cooling

Fan Addon: http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...ctic%20Cooling

Doesn't look like NCIX has the fan module instock though. You can be creative and mount a 120mm fan on it though...

The VF1000 is good... But if you want extra good performance I would recommend that you buy your self a Thermalright HR-03 GT with a 92mm fan.
