Its a niche cooler designed not for performance I think, more as an alternate to stock cooling without heavy investment.

I think it would work perfectly for smaller applications that don't require OC'ing and such.

In terms of design looks alot like their VF3000 series of coolers, which apparently cooled pretty well, so hopefully this keeps with the trend. That said, I'm NEVER touching Zalman coolers again lol :P
