Pros
Does exactly what it's supposed to do, and is pretty to boot!
Cons
Slightly bulky and heavy, was missing one tiny mounting piece.
Summary
This cooling unit took my ATI Radeon HD2600 XT from about 55°C (idling on failing GPU cooler) and 85°C during heavy workload down to 39°C idle and 47°C during heavy work. It's exactly what I needed, and the blue LED on the fan is just a nice added touch (all my other case lighting is blue).

Pros
It's pretty. It's quiet. It cools.
Cons
It doesn't blow the air out the back of the case.
Summary
The only issue I could have with this heatsink is that it's not set up to blow air out of the case. Is that an issue for cooling the video card? Not at all. Is that an issue with cooling other components, such as the CPU and north/southbridges? Yes. When your GPU starts getting hot, the air blowing off of it can increase temperatures elsewhere. Is it really such an issue, though? Not at all. With this Zalman heatsink you will reduce the noise level in your case to near silence. The extra 1-2 degrees that your CPU will gain is nothing compared to the 5+ degrees that your GPU will be cooled by.

Pros
silent, LED
Cons
huge, heavy
Summary
Although the heatsink its huge and heavy, the performance is excellent. Keeps my card cool and the noise is barely hearable. The LED fan is also a nice bonus to those who have a side window.

Cons
heavy, loud on max rpm, ram sinks are only of average quality
Summary
This cooler took my 8600gt o/c to 769 core, 969 memory, 1735 shader (620,800,1457 stock respectively) from 48 degrees idle, 69 degrees full load to 35 degrees idle and 48 degrees full load.

Pros
Does exactly what it's supposed too
Cons
Must double check the install location before putting thermal paste on.
Summary
Got this for my ATI All-In-Wonder video card which runs VERY hot for video capture and recording. No more studdering or picture freezing. Runs cooler than room temperature now. Solved all of my vga cooling problems.

Very Quite and Works awsome
Cons

Summary
I Installed this on a Sapphire HD3870 512mb GDDR4 card the stock cooler i was not happy with so i got this.

Before installing the cooler my Idle temp was 44c and on load temp was 86c!

After installing this cooler my temps have dropped to Idle 35c and on load down to 45c!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My setup is:

CM CosmosS case
MSI Memory lover MB
4gb ocz plat
Sapphire HD3870 512mb GDDR4
Wolfdale 3.0ghz E8400
AC Freezer 7 pro CPU cooler
WD 250gig HDD X2
6X Sythe s-flex 75CFM 1900 rpm 120mm case fans


IM EXTREMLY IMPRESSED by how much my on load temps have dropped Nearly 41 degrees C. I can only reccomend buying this for ANY VIDEO CARD you ever have.

Pros
The fan at full speed is quieter than the stock 4850 fan at 65%. Keeps temps under FeH load to 46-55 degrees C.
Cons
Adaptor was not provided to attach fan directly to a peripheral connector; annoying if your mobo's fan headers are all used up.
Summary
Installed this on a Radeon 4850. It is no louder than my BTF90 CPU fan and temps dropped to 56 C max under load. I wish it came with a molex to 3-pin fan adaptor.

Pros
Very Quiet, Used on XFX 9800GT 512mb
At 100% load 53C
at idle 38-40C
(with overclocks 750/1045/1825)from stock 600/900/1500)
Cons
None, I would say price but I bought this for 20$.
Summary
Used on my XFX 9800GT, the stock fan would go 81C at full load and 55C idle, this thing dropped down to 54C and 40C idle, and that is with overclocks 750c/1045mem/1825shader.

from stock 600/900/1500

You do not need to buy the ZMRHS88 ram heatsinks unit for the 9800gt or the 8800gt, I believe that is for the 8800gts and gtx, no need for g92 gpus.

It took me about 20-25 minutes to clean paste off and install.

I used arctic silver 5 since i hears the paste that comes with this is pretty bad. Reviews had the paste that came with this 3-5C hotter at load and 1-2C hotter at idle. I would recommend AC5.

Pros
Very Quiet
High Quality
Cons
Didn't cool as much as I expected
Ram sinks not quite large enough for 4870 1 GB
Summary
I installed this cooler (along with the ZM-RHS70 heatsink) on my XFX 4870 1 GB card. Installation was easy, just time consuming (I was very thorough in my cleaning of all mating surfaces).

The stock cooler was loud at anything more than 30% fan speed, and unfortunately at 30% fan speed the temps were around 52 C. With this cooler, 100% fan speed is still very quiet, and it manages to idle at 45 C.

Not a drastic temperature improvement, but the noise reduction is awesome!

Pros
Straightforward install; reasonable size/weight; excellent performance.
Cons
Not enough heatsinks for Radeon 4850; heatsinks could be stickier; heatsinks are a bit wide for some spaces - throwing in a few smaller ones would help!
Summary
Took me about an hour to mount on a Sapphire Radeon HD4850. No problems to speak of: the mounting studs fit perfectly, and the procedure was quite straightforward. I picked the VF1000 as a compromise between enormous size and lower performance, and so far it has come nicely up to my expectations. It uses up a second slot, but not a third, and cools things down about as much as anyone would need.

Fortunately, I ordered an additional package of Zalman's blue heatsinks, as the VF1000 only includes enough to cover the 8 RAM chips around the GPU, not the VRMs and other junk over at the end of the card. The stock cooler covers these, so obviously they're significant. On the other hand, the stock cooler leaves them passively cooled, with no breeze reaching them from the fan. As the VF1000 actually blows down onto the surface of the card, I'm guessing it should provide better cooling for these secondary items.

Getting the sinks to stick is a definite issue, as noted by other users. I cleaned all the chips using both 99% isopropyl and Goof Off, rubbed them lightly with an eraser, and scrubbed them as clean as I could with a Q-tip. Everything seems to be sticking nicely (at this point). Even so, it would be great if Zalman would offer a kit specifically for the Radeon 3800/4800 family, perhaps using the original mounting holes to bolt on a proper metal heatsink. This would do away with the single awkward part of the install.

The card now runs at load cooler than it used to run at idle: about 42C/48C idle/load, versus an amazing 53C/70C+ for the original stock cooler. (In fairness, my case is a bit cramped for today's longer cards.) I've run Catalyst AutoTune utility, and it suggests 690/1138 MHz for GPU/RAM speeds, which is not quite the maximum offered by ATI Overdrive (700/1200 MHz), and takes the temp under load to around 58C.

Although the Zalman kit includes an inline speed controller, I just plugged straight into the motherboard, letting the VF1000 run full tilt. In this configuration, it's still quieter than the stock cooler running at 50% speed (the minimum that would keep the card from locking up!). With the five other fans in my Lian Li case, the noise contribution from the VF1000 is insignificant.

Hope this info is helpful to any other HD4850 owners looking for cooler running! Of course, mine was a first-generation card; you can now buy an HD4850 with much more reasonable cooling, for the same $200 I paid a few months ago.
