While Zalman may be known first and foremost for their CPU heatsinks, they have also released some successful coolers for graphics cards as well. With the VF3000 series, they are hoping to capitalize on the lessons from the past and release a high performance heatsink for the most current cards on the market.

Decked out with a quartet of large-diameter copper heatpipes and a pair of high performance 92mm fans, the VF3000 series seems to be ready for some massive heat loads. Judging from the mounting brackets we have seen, we believe that it will be compatible with most past, present and future cards which includes ATI's 5000, 4000 and 3000 series along with NVIDIA's 200 and 9000 series. Whether it will be compatible with the upcoming Fermi architecture is anyone's guess but we wouldn't put any money on it.

One of the most interesting things about this cooler is the fact that it comes in two colors: black and red. As you probably already guessed, the VF3000N is black and destined for NVIDIA GPUs while the VF3000A is decked out in red for ATI cards.
