5 out of 5 eggsEpic

Pros: This is a good heat sink for the price. It fit my AMD Radeon HD 7850 flawlessly. The RAM heat sinks were a very nice addition. I also loved the mounting bolts they made things easy and puts good tension between the sink and the card. It keeps my cards idle temp at 27c and while playing Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 with MAX graphics it hit 52c, which in my personal opinion are great temps. Also, epic white LED lights with a speed controller.

Cons: The heat sink is at an angle so I had to move my side panel fan back a little. instructions not in English but the pictures work perfectly. Also use different thermal paste, the stuff its supplied with doesn't last very long.

Other Thoughts: Totally worth the money.

1 out of 5 eggsyou get what you pay for

Pros: Looks good - as though it should work. Fits the card well, nice speed control, quiet, very inexpensive for what you actually get

Cons: Memory heat sinks are worthless as the adhesive tape supplied with them won't hold them on long enough to install the card. Even though I cleaned the memory chips thoroughly (not mentioned in the instructions by the way), they all fell off despite any attempt to keep them on. For that reason, I couldn't get a decent heat test but without them the temp was 61C at idle while the stock cooler ran 50C. No help there.

Instructions are poor as you will need a magnifying glass to read them and the hardware doesn't match the procedure (extra parts that can confuse a novice). Thermal compound is sub-par but plentiful.

The size is huge and will render the neighboring PCI slot useless and possibly the next slot too unless it is a really short card. I guess that depends on the location of the GPU chip on your card.

Other Thoughts: My V/C are two XFX 8600 GTS in SLI config and have always run extremely hot to the point of interrupting game play under heavy use. In hindsight, I'd probably been better off to buy different video cards rather than trying to improve these.

As it will cost about half what I paid to return this junk, maybe I'll try what another reviewer suggested and stack a small fan on top the GPU heat sink, assuming I can find a way to keep the memory heat sinks on.

The heat pipe concept seems to have failed in this design so I think the product was not properly tested, at least under extreme conditions like mine. Maybe that's the reason for the low cost but don't be fooled like me, this is another case of "you get what you pay for"

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Cooler...if you slightly modify it.

Pros: -Cools well when modified
-Looks Nice and has White LEDs
-Comes with alot of extra stuff (extra mounting hardware, thermal paste, vram heatsinks)
-Adjustable Fan Speed bracket

Cons: -Not quite strong enough to cool a GTX 650 TI Superclocked on its own
-VRAM heatsink adhesive isnt top notch

Other Thoughts: I got this because for reasons not worth getting into, my EVGA 650 TI GTX Superclocked no longer had a heatsink or fan on it, so I decided to go aftermarket. On its own, my idles temps were 50c and at load it went over 100c and shut down my pc. I was very upset because it looked like it had some decent cooling power with all the fins it had to dissipate heat. So heres what I did: Since it can use a 4Pin Molex or a 3Pin Mobo connector for power, it left the 2 Pin connector on my video card free to use. So what I did was I superglued a small fan that I had lying around from an old video card onto the AeroCool VGA cooler. I attached it to the die that sits on top of the GPU (the heatsink WITHOUT the fan on it), and plugged it into the 2pin connector on the video card. Now, I didnt quite expect this to work but wow. My idles went down to 35c and my load never peaked over 59c. From what i remember, the stock EVGA heatsink/fan kept it at 41c idle. Huge improvement for a $11 vga cooler made for low end cards.

5 out of 5 eggsWell worth the money...

Pros: get enough mini heatsinks for the gpu memory with it instead of having to buy it seperately, just make sure you use quality thermal adhesive instead of the stock stuff, unit has a slot speed control which is a plus, light is not too much, cools my sons' 6770 about 10c cooler than stock!

Cons: Sticks out a couple inches from the side of the case BUT a Zalman Z11 (my sons' case) is perfect as the bumped out window leaves just enough extra space to get side panel on -- REMEMBER THIS AS YOU'LL NEED 2 INCHES CLEARANCE FROM THE EDGE OF A STOCK (not low prof) CARD... Well built gpu cooler, I don't understand the negative reviews??

Other Thoughts: On their asus m4a87td-evo mobo, 4 gb 1333 ram, and athlon II 215, coupled with a cheap zalman cpu direct contact cooler this unit controls the heat and with it sticking out from the card due to the heatpipes, it blows more heat up toword the exhaust fan. Good design!

4 out of 5 eggsGood Thus Far

Pros: Easy installation, looks kida cool, but I cant see into my case anyway. Got them to replace the noisy 8800 GT fan on my ZOTEC Alpha Dog edition cards. Temperature wise, so far so good. With my temp sensors inside the small cooling block against the heat pipes, i am getting 33 C on idle. On stock setup it would hover around 42 C idle, and that was further away from the GPU.

Cons: Ram Sink Adhesive would be nie to have included as opposed to the absolute junk that came on them. This installation took 2 hours because i spent 1:30 scraping the stuff off the 16 heatsinks. Also needed to buy other sinks for the MOSFET on teh cards, but that was no problem.

Other Thoughts: I am running:
EVGA 780i 3 way SLI board with 2 ZOTEC 8800 GT's pre-overclocked to 700MHz. 8GB Corsair 4-4-4-12 ram. Intel Q6600 at 3.0 GHz on a Tuniq Tower. CMStacker case (whatever the biggest one is called) with the cross blow fan thing. All told, 8 fan speed controllers 4 HD's 2 DVD-R's and 1 floppy, haha My goal was silent speed and now it is quieter than my XBox 360.

3 out of 5 eggsNot so good

Pros: Came in one piece. Very light weight compared to others. Very easy to install White LED is kinda cool looking.

Cons: Does not even cool as well as stock set-up. With new cooler I now idle @ 60c and during gaming gets up around 66-68c. Heck the stock one kept me under those numbers.

Other Thoughts: Will probably RMA this worthless thing and get somthing higher end. Newegg is great when it comes to what I need for this ongoing project I call a computer. Asus M2N-E SLI, Athlon X2 5200+, 4 gigs Corsair XMS2 800Mhz, EVGA Geforce 8800gts superclocked, 2 80gig WD Raptors

3 out of 5 eggsDecent Cooler

Pros: *Decent cooling

*Low Noise

*Light weight

*Cool led light

Cons: *Retension Mechanism

*Below average memory heatsinks

*No english instructions

*Questionable Compatability (8800?)
*Size (3 slots with card)
*Price (too high)

Other Thoughts: Overall I like this cooler, not the best but better than most. Its got a nifty white light which makes the overall silver finish look even better. The noise is tolerable even on high and it weighs far less than the copper cooler that came OEM on my card. Which by the way is a 7900GT, this cooler keeps it at 39C idle, 48C load, which I can deal with. The spring-loaded retention is HORRIBLE, just do yourself a favor, use shorter screws and nuts to hold it down. The springs don’t have good pressure and will not give you a good seat against the core. The memory heatsinks are very cheap with a fin count of 12, other coolers come with mem heatsinks with a count of 30 or greater. Mine came with no English instructions (although 4 other languages where included) and I have to question the claim that it will work on an 8800 given that there are no heatsinks provided for the power modules of those cards.
