ZALMAN Files for Bankruptcy



/ 2 years ago

Today is a sad day in the world of technology, as legendary Korean manufacturer Zalman have filed for bankruptcy. The company filed for bankruptcy on the 3rd of November in Seoul. This is suspected to be due to a scam by its owner Moneual.

The company has gained much praise over the years for their passive cooling hardware, such as the TNN-500 and the TNN-300 series coolers. I’m sure more than a few of you who are reading this will have used or still do use Zalman hardware.

The future of the company is uncertain at this time, but things aren’t looking good. Either someone will jump in and save the day at the last-minute, or the company will be broken up and sold off to cover their debts.

No doubt this is bad news for the current work force at Zalman, so we wish you all the best of luck in finding a new career path.

    sad. their really low budget stuff had a “cheap” feel to it (as you would excpect).
    but getting in the mid-range, they had really good stuff.

    We should observe a moment’s silence, it will take a special manufacturer to fill the hole left by Zalman’s passing…

    Never heard of them though :/

      You obviously have never built a PC before. Zalman is(/was) a HUGE name in cooling with many enthusiasts choosing their coolers for their builds.

        You do know that all brands don’t exist in every country do you? Sweden is one of them, so no wonder I’ve never heard of them.
        Never built my own PC from scratch though, just upgrading bit by bit.

  • Damn, I just bought a couple of their 80mm shark fin FDB fans for my rig, I guess I should’ve bought more. Sad news.

    Sorry to hear that. I just can’t imagine their technology in a treasure chest lying somewhere at the bottom of the sea (East Chinese? God, no!!!).

  • Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
