    having lots of trouble with the zalman vf900.
    Not giving temps cooler than stock and its also making the top of my case (v1000+) quite hot on full load. thinking of putting the old stock cooler back on.
    Does anyone know if the stocker cooler can go on with the vf900 blue heatsinks still in place?

    That would be a no. The stock HSF makes contact with the ram chips.
