These are handy to cool various things on a motherboard. Currently using them to cool different IC's on an Intel D2500CCE mITX board. They are colored blue in the picture but mine are bare aluminum colored. Picture also shows a couple of tall heatsinks but they now only come in low profile.
I bought these in hopes that it would bring down the temps on my MSI GTX560TI Twin Frozer II. They did! I saw about 8C drop in core temps after they were installed. I primarily fold with this card, so the temps were a lot higher than those experienced while gaming. These heatsinks brought down my card temps from mid 80s to mid to high 70s while folding. The only downside is that I had to file some of the VRAM sinks down to fit under the GPU heatsink.
Product has been updated by Zalman to work with their newer VF700 and VF900 series of VGA coolers. All 8 heatsinks are now clear anodized aluminum finish and are low profile (6 mm in height). There were no high profile (13 mm high) heatsinks included.Luckily I needed the low profile heatsinks for my application.
great little heat sinks, the low profile allows them to fit almost anywhere!, I use these for xbox 360's, and as they might not be needed, it's highly suggested to remove as much heat from the motherboard as possible. I will defenatly be ordering more in the future. Id give these little guys a 9/10 would have been 10/10 but the price is a little high.
I got these on sale, to go with an Accelero S1 Rev2 heatsink. They were easy to install. They stick very well - as already mentioned, make sure you position them right the first time. They probably do a good job at keeping the memory chips cool, cause I never had any problems with the videocard so far.
For $1 each, I would definitely buy these again. And I probably will soon, as I'll be upgrading to a new card soon.
