New Cases, Coolers and 3D Displays From Zalman

Zalman is actually in a local hotel suite, showing off some very interesting products. They are showcasing their 3D monitor in the 21.5 inch variant with FullHD resolution. A 24 inch version can also be had, while a 27 inch LCD and a 32 inch 3D TV LCD are also in planning. We also got a good look at their upcoming VGA coolers for ATI and NVIDIA cards. Due to the different placement of GPU cores, there are now two different coolers with the same general structure. We were told, that the final NVIDIA version will be green, while the red variant is final and will be intended for ATI products.


We also got a peak a the Z7 and Z10 cases, with the latter having been filled with Gigabyte and Patriot hardware along with the new CNPS10 Performa CPU cooler from Zalman itself. This unit will sport an affordable price point, while retaining the performance level of the CNPS10X model. There is also a new silent fan unit, which will sell for around 17 USD. It has rubberized corner fillings to stop vibrations and also features a unique blade design.

Last but not least, there are several netbook and notebook coolers, The most interesting one is the NC2500 Plus - the midsize one - which features an integrated 2.5 inch SATA enclosure in the base for added storage. For those not requiring such a bay, the NC2500 omits this option and thus comes with a lower price tag.

But you'll have to use the ATI one for Fermi :D Don't know if the black would fit Fermi, as their core is so much more to the left that it used to be.

Bad thing about the is that they still use 3pin connector and not 4pin PWM straight to card. But they do look nice, Question is will they beat Accelero TwinTurbo Pro?

That lattice-work Chair back in the top right hand corner?

I have a set of those chairs... they are over 40 years old.

What an odd thing to see at a tech display no?

I KNOW nobody really cares, but I found it fascinating.

And yes.. I have cats... and fruit... but am not over 40 - these have been in the family since long before me.

I know why you have said this, but its not all bad, hot air spills out the side where its actually easier to blow out the back of the case.

Having them orientated length ways is great for passive coolers though.

I'm definitely not keen on the VF3000 it's nowhere near as aesthetically pleasing compared to the VF1000.

:(

Need to look at better pictures of that chassis though.

Yes for sure, Love that design and have one here and are great for top of the case and if they had more RPM they be totally sweet for graphic cards due to that open design they have.

This Zalman one makes me think of those rubber grommets (FAIL).

I was very fond of their "orb" designs a few years ago. - I Know they weren't the best, but at the time they where pretty damn good, and where very innovative.

Seems now'a days they are more following the market lead rather than innovating.

Whatever sells units I suppose.
