5 out of 5 eggsVery good product !

Pros: Cools the system down by an average 20 deg C.
Very very quite as advertised
Even if you don't follow the mounting instructions to the dot, you will get the cooling results.
Good customer service

Cons: Not as easy to install as you would expect
Little screws holding the pump are very fragile...Don't use any screw driver but screw them manually. They don't need a lot of pressure.

Other Thoughts: The customer service sent me additional screws after I broke one...Thanks for that !
If it happens to you, you can find very small screws in car/aircraft model shops that will do the tricks as well.
I was disappointed with the thermal results after the first mount so I dismantled every thing and started again. After different configs of thermal pads and pressure of the back plate, I found the results were similar : Around 5 deg C gain only !
I then realized that the AMD/Nvidia cooling schedule were inappropriate. They tend to let the video card temp rise before increasing the fan speed. Once the fan speed was raised to 85 pc manually, via the driver itself or MSI Afterburner, the temps went down by at least 20 deg C in 20 pc overclock of the card.
Conclusion : It's good, very good and very quite. I bought two of these and I strongly recommend them. Use Afterburner, configure your fan speed manually and you will love it.

5 out of 5 eggsI Love it....however....

Pros: Keeps my GPU at around 40-45c under load and around 37-40c idle. That's a pretty impressive improvement over the 70c idle and 85-95c load I had with the stock cooler. Not to mention that my computer no longer sounds like a jet engine when playing my games.

Cons: Installation was not simple. Although it comes with instructions they are not exactly clear. I had to read them several times to make sure I wasn't going to ruin my rather expensive video card. The clips that hold the heatsink to the card do not stay in place well and some of them get in the way of other components in the PC such as the heatsinks on the mobo. (Which freaked me out when I turned on my pc to a black screen because I didn't see the the clips were blocking the card from being seated properly) Easily fixed by moving the clips around however for my card I had to remove 2 of them completely.

Other Thoughts: It's alot bigger than I anticipated, I had to install it in the second PCIe slot as my ram and mobo cooler was in the way otherwise. Overall it was a relatively smooth installation after I figured out the process. I would definitely buy another although I think the price is a bit high at $130.

1 out of 5 eggsBring Back Original Design

Pros: I am an owner of the original Arctic Accelero Hybrid design which I believe has to be far superior to this design. I have never owned this new design but want to give it a review because it has an obvious design problem, I want people to be aware of, and to encourage Arctic to return to their previous design . The original design was awesome. Since I purchased it several years ago I have installed it on 3 separate video cards and it has yet to fail me. It provides awesome cooling and is nearly silent. It fits most modern cards and provides far better cooling for all components than any air cooler can.

Cons: The problem with this design is it provides no way to cool the VRam or voltage regulators what so ever. All it has is a passive heatsink backplate installed on the wrong side of the card. Its simply impossible for a backplate to provide adequate cooling, given that it makes no direct contact with the components. To compound this problem even further there is no fan to move the hot air away from the components. So the VRAM and voltage regulators on your card are going to be air cooled in the purest sense (no heatsink), and not even have a fan to provide cool air! Contrast this to the previous design, which had aluminum heatsinks and a fan mounted in a sheath around the card to move cool air across those heatsinks. That is a far superior design.

Another problem with the current design is that since the backplate heatsink is on wrong side of the card, the card will now occupy at least 3 PCI slots if not more.

Other Thoughts: It seems Arctic decided to dumb down the design of this cooler to make for a very simple installation. I admit the old design did require a difficult installation process, especially when it came to attaching heat-sinks to the voltage regulators. But this new design is simply not a viable solution. I think many people who are buying this new design don't realize that VRAM and voltage regulators get extremely hot and need to be cooled just as much as the GPU does, this is compounded by the fact that most cards don't provide a means for monitoring the VRAM or V-reg components, so most people won't realize those components are overheating until its too late. I strongly advise anyone who buys this new design to also purchase some copper or aluminum 10-15mm heatsinks for the VRAM on your card. And 6mm or smaller heatsinks for the voltage regulators (VRM). Also a fan to blow directly on the heatsinks is a good idea. Be careful when installing the heatsinks not to bridge electric terminals between components, especially on the VRM. Put down some masking tape around the components before attaching the heatsinks to help with this. Also remember these heatsinks will be hanging upside down once the card is installed in the computer so make sure they are securely attached. I recommend aluminum heat sinks as they are lighter and will stay attached more easily.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: In theory, this is a good idea.... No idea if it really works (see con)

Cons: Box was missing the protective film that is required to put the heatsink on the gpu. Didn't realize it was missing until I had already taken apart my gpu and put the liquid cooler on -- not the company's fault that I didn't double check that it was there but still aggravating because you can't exactly grab a spare protective film out of your tool box.

The heatsink is taller than advertised and appears it will run into my ram (won't know until I can actually put the thing together); so if you think you might be close, don't buy this.

All the youtube videos I watched before buying this product said read the directions BEFORE trying to assemble and I would agree EXCEPT the directions are really bad.

Other Thoughts: Planning on calling ARCTIC to get them to send me the missing film but haven't had an opportunity yet (too busy putting my GPU back together....).

1 out of 5 eggsCan't keep a R9 290x VRM cool.

Pros: You get to tell your friends your GPU is liquid cooled and act like you are superior to them.

Cons: I've been fiddling with this product for over a month now, and I've found it's just completely incapable of keeping VRM1 on a reference stock R9 290x cool. The temp of VRM2 and the GPU itself stays pretty low at around 60-65C, but VRM2 slowly creeps uo to 97C and causes my system to lock up every time.

I've taken this cooler apart and put it back together over half a dozen times now to try to make small adjustments to remedy this, I even bought expensive aftermarket thermal pads in hopes that would pull more heat away from VRM1 to the heatsink to solve my issue. No dice, this product just fails to deliver and I am seriously frustrated and angry at this point.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this. If your looking for an AIO liquid gpu cooler still I'd recommend giving the Corsair Hydro HG10 a look over this product. It comes out in August and from the looks of it, it will be superior to this product in every way.

1 out of 5 eggsNice while it lasted

Pros: Cool and quiet, just what you want a cooler to do

Cons: Didn't last long. Fan died after a few weeks and had to replace with one that can't be controlled by the GPU.

Now after a few months the pump sprang a leak and leaked the oily fluid all over my card and motherboard.

Contacted Arctic about RMA and haven't heard anything back in 3 days yet, that's not a good sign.

Other Thoughts: Nice while it lasted, but very disappointed in the longevity of this product. Leaked after less than 3 months.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat for first time liquid cooling

Pros: The install is easy so long as you follow the instructions. This keeps my card way cooler than any fan ever would, and I live in the desert without AC so summertime gaming used to be no bueno until I got this. Other big bonus is that its fan is a regular case fan. I ended up putting the accelero fan on one side pushing, and a case fan on the other pulling. together they keep everything under 65c for me to play battlefield 4 on ultra.

Cons: setup requires a little creativity for the less documented cards.

Other Thoughts: my first ever liquid cooling setup, glad to say it was surprisingly easy and I never had to deal with liquid once.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Loop for vga

Pros: 1. Works like a charm my temp never go beyond 47C and 23C on idle with my GTX 780 HOF (OC 1264 core and 1602 VRAM)
2. Silent fan and still get a good temp
3. Heatsink on the back works well to dispatch Vram heat

Cons: 1. The screws looks easy to break since it is to slim so be careful when tightening it you can bent it and break easily if not handled carefully
2. The plastic protection on the back is a little hard to cut nicely
3. Like the other review the screws tends to loosen at some time not sure why tried to used the clips on the side and tighten it a little bit maybe it will help
4. You are taking a risk of trying it since you don't know if your pcb is compatible
5. Price is high for the few screws that look like easily to break.

Other Thoughts: For the price it should have 2 fan and provide a splitter for a puch pull config. Bottom line is it works but I think this cooler need a rework since the screw are flimsy. I don't know how long it will last only had it for 2 days as of now. It fits on Galaxy HOF 780 if any one want to try it. Btw if anyone is wondering the fan is connected to the GPU fan header NOT the motherboard fan header. Would i recommend yes.
