    I'll be using for a sapphire X1950 Pro
    main reason I'm probably getting it is because of the newegg deal for 20 off 100 so I'd be getting it for about $15 since I was already ordering some other stuff

    here's a better question, do any of you see a better one at newegg for an x1950pro that is same price or cheaper?

    That one is supposed to be pretty good, but as you said, not sure how much better if will be than the Zalman, if any at all.

    Is there a deal now at newegg $20 off when you order for more than $100? If so I will order the long pending x1950 pro.

    Go with the VF900-CU - it's probably the best/most versatile air cooler I've seen, and definitely the best one I've used.

    lol no thanks pbmaster
    @ t_ski I definitely would and wouldn't have considered this thread if they had it in stock :p
    @ suraswami that's loads cheaper than the zalman...I wonder if it'd be worth the downgrade?

    also @suraswami yes check out my thread in hot deals about the newegg promo...and thank me if you want ;)

    just wanted to give everyone an update
    I got the Zalman VF900-Cu in today and installed on my sapphire x1950 pro 256!
    took no more than 15 mins and was a piece of cake to my relief
    in a fairly well ventilated case, temps aren't exceeding 46C under load! :rockout:
