Zalman 80-HP

Do any of you know anything about the Zalman 80-HP?
http://www.studiedata.dk/product.asp?product=693&page=1

I will be testing this unit for SA on Monday, and I was wondering if any of you know how well it performs?

I'll be writing a Danish instructions manual for it as well. Its completely new here in Denmark, so there is no Danish manual as of yet.

TIA

Hmm . . .

Uses a heatpipe to transfer heat to the top side heatsink, interesting idea. I wouldn't expect it to perform particularly well though, as most heatpipes implemented for PC cooling so far have left a lot to be desired . . .

The main reason for this lack in performance is that heatpipes need to be designed with a particular thermal load in mind to achieve optimal results. If the refrigerant is at too high a pressure it will not evaporate fast enough and the device will overheat. If the refrigerant is at too low a pressure for the cooling apparatus it will not condense and return to the load quickly enough. "One size fits all" applications just aren't doable with heatpipes . . .

I have a GF3-Ti200. I'm not sure how well it will perform either, but its an interesting design. I guess my review of it will show if its sufficient..

Spyder: I don't have a case window so I don't really care what color it is!

Thanks for your input guys

I'm typing this with the Zalman unit installed. It took a while to install it, but it seems to work pretty well. More to come later!
