5 out of 5 eggsworth it

Pros: Great cooling performance.

Cons: Tedious install.
This thing is huge. I lost a PCIe slot due to the increased size.
You can fry your card if you are not careful.

Other Thoughts: Playing Far Cry 4 on Nvidia optimized settings and 64(c) is the hottest my card has gotten since install. That's a drop of about 10(c) degrees for me (using the evga precisionX software for fan control). Quite a few people have ruined their cards with improper placement of the thermal pads. The link mentioned in Jan Z's review was a great help...lots of pictures and a different way to apply the thermal pads to ensure they don't touch the inductors.

5 out of 5 eggsArtic GTX 690 Cooler

Pros: This cooler does as advertised. With the original cooler my card would run in the low 80's under load. With the Artic cooler it runs in the high 60's to low 70's. The best part for me since I like a silent system is how quiet the cooler is. No more having to listen to the stock cooler scream under load while gaming.

Cons: Not really a con, but the installation process is very tedious. As others have said, cut the thermal pads to fit rather than place the long strips down.

Other Thoughts: This cooler transformed my awesome looking card into a big, ugly beast. But this thing does work well. Like in other reviews, it dumps a lot of heat into your case, so it must be well ventilated. With my side panel off my Corsair Air 240, this thing will keep my computer room warm this winter while under load. So far very pleased.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat buy, NOT EASY!

Pros: - Effective
- Not overly expensive (compared to liquid cooling)
- Very quiet

Cons: - HUGE
- HARD to install

Other Thoughts: Definitely a great buy. Before installing this, my 690 would be maxing between 86-89C (182-188F). It was literally giving off heat from inside the computer... not good. Installed and now running around 61-65C (160-165F). It works like a charm... if you install it correctly.
I have read many reviews on this cooler, about people destroying their cards with it. Yes that can happen, and during installation I could see why.

Here is what I did to install correctly:
1. FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS... install the isolation tape all around the parts it shows you in the manual. 100% guarantee must if you are not sure about yourself.
2. Cut down the pieces of sticky foam to the exact size of the component it goes on. Do not use the precut they provide, cut those down.
3. DO NOT PUT THE FOAM ON THE COOLER ITSELF. Instead, apply it on the card and put the cooler on top of it. It is the only way to make sure that you put it in the correct place and it is not misplaced.
4. Slow and patient. Guys... you are dealing with a 1000$ video card... don't be stupid and rush through it, even if you think you are a big shot. I have A+ certification and many years of technical support experience, and I took my time with it to do it right. It is just not worth it to rush through it.

If anything, this is the post that I have followed when installing mine :

I would highly recommend this instead of water cooling if you don't want to deal with that, but only if you are sure that you can handle installing it, or afford another card if something happens.

4 out of 5 eggscooler works

Pros: Super quiet.

3x Noctua NF-F12 PWM fans on my radiator are louder than 2x fans on this cooler (under load).

Keeps the temperature in low 70s compared to low 80s with original cooler. Idles in high 20s compare to low 30s with original cooler.

Cons: If you don't have a good airflow in your rig, you will experience higher temp. Make sure you have enough room and good airflow to get the hot air out quick.

Big cooler. Make sure you have enough space not just to fit the card but for airflow.

Heavy cooler. Comes with the support sticks which are not long enough if you have full tower cases so somewhat useless.

Not the most clear instructions and methods, hence why many people fail and damage their card.

Other Thoughts: The most important part about installing this cooler is that you have to make sure thermal pads are not touching the inductors. Otherwise, it will damage the card.

Don't use the long thermal pads for mosfet and put on the cooler like instructed, instead cut them to piece (right size) and put on the mosfet directly on the cooler, and then mount the cooler. See below link for picture with details i post.

1 out of 5 eggsDamaged my GTX690

Pros: None. Couldn't test it.

Cons: After I'v mounted it and started Windows it appears to be ok. Just started Heaven and 30 seconds after, my video was gone. After a reset, my card was damaged. I'm pretty sure I mounted perfectly. After a quick search on Google, many people had same issues. Now I will try to return it and get my card rma'ed.

5 out of 5 eggsSimply a beast!

Pros: The bottom line is that this nifty puppy lowered the temp on my gig for almost 16 degrees C at full load. That alone was fine by me! What really made me happy was that it was so quiet even with two large 120mm fans spinning away at full force that I literally took it for granted. I quickly reminded myself how lucky I was when I sat in a room with another GTX690 laboring with factory cooler. What a difference a cooler can make!

Cons: This puppy is definitely NOT for entry-level me-too DIY guys. The installation can be tedious and testing every bit of patience and skill, which comes with experience. It also requires lots of real estate to stretch its muscle. Don’t bother getting it if you’re unwilling to invest into a real spacious case. You cannot make the best use of this beast with a tiny case.

Other Thoughts: Newegg’s forum is definitely a good place to learn some valuable lessons from experienced folks who enjoyed pushing the limits before starting your own journey. That extra effort will pay off and turn into a very rewarding experience. On top of that, Arctic Cooling also provides excellent customer services as well. I needed some extra accessories, contacted them through support email listed on the Specification page, received an email reply telling me the package was on the way and got them in mail in a few days. No nonsense, no hassle.

1 out of 5 eggsBroke my 690

Pros: Nearly silent at load.

Cons: Broke my Evga GTX 690 within 15 minutes after explicitly following the installation instructions. To be honest, I did not go into this knowing that there was a significant risk of breaking the card. A quick Google search would lead you to at least a few forums with people who's 690s were killed by this cooler. I really wish that you hadn't put this item on sale, Newegg.

1 out of 5 eggsDo Not Buy this.

Pros: Ran Cold for two days.

Cons: Destroyed 2 of 690's

Other Thoughts: I've modded graphics cards before there is something wrong with this product. Do not purchase unless you are absolutely sure you know what you are doing.

4 out of 5 eggsWonky install, awesome performance

Pros: Super cool GPU card! dropped idle temps from 40C to 25-27C, and load temps from mid-60's to 45-50C. Install was fairly smooth, with a few hangups.

Cons: Stripped two screws mounting the cooler, had to find some 2-48 screws to replace them & re-tap aluminum block for mounting. (I don't think I was over-torquing these, but documentation leaves a lot to be desired regarding this. Factory ones were SUPER tight.)

I have a gigantic case (Raven 02), and this thing barely fits. Not really a con, just info.

Other Thoughts: This product has kind of a cheesy support mechanism with the foam blocks. My tower allows the card to be positioned vertically, but I am still concerned considering the movement this cooling device allows the PCB to undergo. I'd like to see a better mechanism created for this, and will most likely end up machining some type of support bracket to keep the card in place.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat cooler!

Pros: Nice and huge fans but just not made for a mid-tower case. The fans are too wide to fit my Antec air boy case. Good thing is I decided to order a Corsair case and now it fits great. It also cools well and think that I should have got this along time ago.

Cons: Make it fit into your case!! This thing is much wider than the card itself. So make your you got the room width wise.

Other Thoughts: Newegg is awesome and I will be a customer for life!
