View Full Version : Bfg 5900nu + Zm80c-hp???

I bought the ZM80C-HP Zalman for my BFG 5900NU. Before I open it and install it when I get home, does anyone know if it will fit without any problems?

It should fit just fine if you follow the instructions (which you can view at Zalman's Web site). Did you make sure to purchase the fan as well as it's required for proper cooling of FX cards?

I didn't purchase the optional Zalman fan kit, but I will be mounting my own Coolermaster fan on it. Is there any problem with that?

Do you have the same combination? Just curious. Thank you.

I have the EXACT same setup. Runs great and it fit fine. I have the optional fan, but using your own fan should be fine.

I just finished installing it, cooled with my own Coolermaster LED fan. It's very good!!! It brought my temps down, and only runs at 75C at load, compared to the 85C load stock.

Will loop 3dmark01 overnight to get more results.

I went to sleep running 3dmark01. When I woke up, the computer would not respond, so I lowered the speed for the memory clock. I think I had it set too high. I left for work with it running the loop.

I'm thinking about getting mem sinks. How about these:


Would it make any difference in perhaps being able to let me OC the memory a bit more?
