5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Very easy to install, came with all of the equipment necessary to do it, instructions were written in passable English (which isn't always the case with tech parts). Brought my HD4850's idle temps from 75 C to 45 C, and load temps playing Diablo 3 from 99-101C to 58C (and I cranked the graphics way up, it was overheating before on anything but the lowest settings). A+ buy, SO much quieter even on 100% than the old stock fan on the HD4850

Cons: price, 40 bucks is a little expensive

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Unbelievably Quiet. Easy installation. Dropped my idle temp on a 6770 from 49* to 39* and my load from 83* to 63*. The fan is totally silent even at full power

Cons: I took off 1 star for the fan connection not having a two prong power so you could hook it into the on card power, fortunately I had an open chassis fan control on my boards as most of my case fans are supplied from the PSU. Also the fan control is kind of lame, I just left it off the install completely.

Other Thoughts: It is not listed as compatible with the 6770 on its website or in its documentation, but it working perfectly.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Dropped the temp of my MSI GTS-450 card 20 degrees C under load. Allows the card to overclock nicely and perform well for Premiere Pro. Quiet too.

Cons: Doesn't use a PWM fan so must connect to other power than what is on the card, which would have offered user defined speed ramping vs temp via software for this card.

4 out of 5 eggsGood VGA Cooler

Pros: Keeps the 9800GT cool.
Quiet - I just run at full speed.
Easy to install except the con below.

Cons: Had to cut some fins (5 on each side about 1/4 inch) away to get the heatsink to fit on the card. (There was a capacitor on each side that the fins contacted)

Other Thoughts: I used the included thermal compound (which there is plenty), I should have used some Arctic Silver 5.

5 out of 5 eggsFrom 4870 HIS--wow--

Pros: Extremely Quiet, even at full speed--Comes with Fan controller, great plus. This keeps the GPU a cool 10-15c cooler than the HIS version of this card.

Cons: Doesnt install itself :p

Other Thoughts: Wish it was only $20, but for the price- it does the job perfectly with room to overclock the card.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well on a 4850

Pros: Quiet, effective, useful speed controller, the mount works with multiple configurations. Not too expensive. A good replacement for under-powered OEM fan/heatsinks, or failed OEM fans (why to OEM's include fans which fail so frequently?). The eight RAM heatsinks attach easily and seem to work well.

Cons: The install is fairly complicated -- not difficult, but quite a few steps. Powering the fan you can't go directly to the video card connections, and must either have an available 3 pin connector on the motherboard, or have in hand a 3 pin to 4 pin power adapter.

Other Thoughts: Installing this as a replacement it helps to pre-check which of the mounting dimensions fit the video card (a simple process). I suspect that if you end up doing multiple replacements on existing video cards, the install will be increasingly easy to do. It would be nice if there was an included bracket to more cleanly route the fan controller out the back of the case (instead of going 'no bracket').

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent and Silent GPU Cooler

Pros: I should point out first that I got this cooler for the sole purpose of making my computer quieter, and as long as it performed at least as well as my stock cooler I would have been happy. I installed this and the results have blown away my expectations. First my MSI 8600GTS card is running about 20 degrees F cooler from the stock cooler. Second this thing is Extremely Quiet! I mean Wow quiet. Silent mode for this is just that silent, while the loudest setting is just barely above my system fan on low, and that is very faint. With regards to the cooling capabilities I will note that I used the Arctic Silver 5 Thermal compound, and not the included compound, so I would really recommend to anyone else buying this cooler, to do the same if you want to duplicate the results I got. By the way did I mention this thing is really really quiet??

Cons: I do not like that I can't have the computer control the fan. The included speed controller as some others have pointed out is pretty cheesy, but obviously not bad enough for me to knock off an egg... really it is more annoyance than anything.

Other Thoughts: Did I mention quiet?

5 out of 5 eggsHighly recommended for Hd 4850

Pros: High performance
Not too noisy at max speed
Really easy installation.
Overall quality,Like all other Zalman Products
Dark blue led is not too bright.

Cons: The included thermal paste is not really good.
If you want a really silent PC look somewhere else.
Blue led, i wish Zalman could make more ''no-led'' products more often.

Other Thoughts: Using this cooler on a Sapphire HD 4850 with Arctic Silver Céramique, 34C idle 50C load thats a 25C improvement over the stock cooler.The installation is easy and it took me about 10 mins to install this cooler.Highly recommended.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent OEM replacement

Pros: I have a Gigabyte Radeon 4850 with the gold-colored Zalman heat sink. The thing is, the OEM heatsink doesn't have a temp-controlled fan speed; it's 100% all the time. So I replaced it with this, which has the Fanmate included. I can turn it all the way down to quietest and my factory-OC'd video card is still less than 70C under load, which is cooler than AMD's heat sinks, though a tiny bit hotter than the gold-colored Gigabyte heatsink it replaced.

Cons: Not really transferrable to a higher-end card. 4850 is probably the hottest card I'd want to cool with this.
