You are 3 hours into that online fragfest and suddenly your screen goes blank. You start wondering what happened to your pride and joy. You finally check the temperature of your video card, and lo and behold, it's way higher than it should be. What do you do? Cleaning the heatsink doesn't help so you are left with a few options. You could leave the case side panel off with a 20inch fan blowing onto your components, you could just hang up the gaming for a while, or you can invest in a new cooler for that hot running video card of yours. Today we will be looking at the ZEROtherm GX 815 Gamer Edition VGA cooling solution that features heatpipe technology, 120 cooling fins, and automatic fan speed control via a built in temperature sensor.
This GPU cooler is compatible with many of today's current video cards. For the nVidia crowd, it is capable of being used from the 6800 series up to the 7900 series. For the ATI crowd, compatibility is limited to the X1x00 series of cards. This includes everything from the 1300 to the 1900 series.
ZEROtherm (APACK) was formed in 1999 through a partnership between three engineers from the Electrics and Telecommunications Research Institute. They have had ongoing success, including contracts with ASUStek to supply the cooling for their line of video cards, as well as being the OEM cooling solution supplier for ASUStek and Elsa's nVidia's 8600 series of cards.
The cooler is prominently displayed through the front panel of the packaging. The specifications and compatibility charts, as well as automatic fan profiles, are listed on the rear panel.
Let's take a look inside to see what we have.This heatsink comes with the mounting hardware to attach this cooler to any of the models listed on the compatibility charts. Thankfully, memory heatsinks, as well as a tube of the company's own thermal paste, are included items.
