2 out of 5 eggsReally Unhappy

Pros: none, poor quality product, was missing hardware

Cons: really poor quality product, was shipped without any screws or standoffs and had to use my own.
Fans are uncovered and free to dice any wire that happens to get in its way and it will iof you are using anything smaller than a fulltower.

Fans are total garbage, product is way over priced for a $3 block of aluminum and .10cent fans.

i feel ripped off, temps on my 7950 are the same as when my fans were seized and i had to pay extra shipping from the USA.

5 out of 5 eggsASUS R9 280X DirectCU II TOP 3 GB

Pros: Installed on an Asus R9 280x and worked perfect!

stock cooler was getting 36 idle and 76 load
this cooler. 29 idle and 57 load!

I tested only on valley benchmark on ultra. temps didn't go over 57.
If you have one of these Asus cards, fans are hard to find and pretty expensive when you do find them, not to mention the wait time from China. If your fan is is busted on this card, it's worth getting this cooler.

Cons: Just wish the fans would be controlled by the GPU, I think the fans are running at 100% so it's louder than I would like it to be. You will probably need a fan controller.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat cooler

Pros: Installed onto a XFX R7950 DD

Temps before install: Idle : 38 C Game play: 92 C+ Actually kicking off video, thus why I purchase this cooler.

Temps after install: Idle: 34 C Game play and stress testing never get above 63 C.

Fan is not half as noisy as the stock cooler and works a LOT better while game playing and stress testing.

Cons: Plugged fans into video card so when idle the fans are running at full speed 4k RPM. So I'm surprised the idle temps are not a little lower. This causes "noise" when just web surfing or editing compared to my old cooler. It's not annoyingly loud, but you hear them.

Other Thoughts: I have read that if you put the cooler fans onto your motherboard fan controller you can control the speed thus lessening the noise when idle.

Installing the VRM heat sinks are little tedious, but worth the effort when you can see the results.

4 out of 5 eggsGELID = COOL

Pros: Cools about 7-9C better than stock fans. Fits Sapphire 7950 3GB GPU. Does not fit most micro-itx cases (I have a Bitfenix Prodigy case).

Cons: I have to keep the side panel off in order to continue to use my Bitfenix Prodigy case. Not a big deal to me, I also have a Coolermaster 902XB lanbox that I choose not to use.

Don't use the Gelid paste, just buy Artic Silver 5.

Other Thoughts: i5 2500K (stock speed)
8GB G-Skill
Sapphire 7950 3GB gpu
Thermatake 600 watt psu

3 out of 5 eggsnot impressed

Pros: Quieter and cooler than stock heatsink, slim profile allows card to only take 2 slotsslots, easy to locate for purchase

Cons: Doesn't compare to thermal right heatsinks on 8800gt. This cooler works better than stock, but on 8800gt doesn't work as well as the TRad2 or hr-03. I only tested it for a week before deciding to purchase the TRad2 .

Other Thoughts: Contacted manufacturer customer support. They responded promptly, but still couldn't get it to perform better.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Product is made of a very nice quality and material. This version works perfectly fine using the GPU fan slot.

Cons: Does not work with r9 290 like a reviewer said.

Other Thoughts: I made the mistake of not checking the website for the item details. You need GELID Solutions GC-VGA02-01 1 Ball to make this work properly. There needs to be a note in the specifics that says it does not work. I will be returning this product once I receive GC-VGA02-01.

Like I have stated before, it was made from nice quality material and sad that its useless to me. I hope newegg would place a small warning stating that it won't work with the r9 290s in the description.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Dropped temps about 10-15C.

Cons: Extremely loud if you plug fans into GPU header.

Other Thoughts: Put the mini gpu to 3 pin fan adapter included to use. Connect it to a motherboard header or controller so you can quiet the fans down.

I put this on a SAPPHIRE DUAL-X 100363BF4L R9 280X and I had a small issue with the cooler running into a couple of the vram heatsinks. Had to move the heatsinks in these two spots so that they only cover about 3/4th of the surface. Not ideal, but I haven't noticed any problems.

Pros: Cheaper then ARCTIC Accelero Xtreme
Easy install then ARCTIC Accelero Xtreme

Cons: Fans louder then ARCTIC Accelero Xtreme

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing difference in temps

Pros: 1. It's quiet.

2. The difference in temperatures from the stock cooling is night and day.

Cons: 1. It's a bit of a challenge to install. So, set aside some time to do it.

Other Thoughts: For my Visiontek R9 280x, the stock cooler just flat didn't cut it. Maybe there was an issue with the stock cooler out of the box, but I would start gaming and within 5 minutes, the temperatures would go up past 80 degrees Celsius. At this point, stability would start to suffer and I'd get driver errors that would cause momentary freezes.

After installing this? I've never seen it go past 57 degrees while gaming. It's also much quieter than the stock cooler since the stock cooler, at least in my case, would be running flat out just to keep some form of stability.

I haven't had a single crash since. Good stuff. I definitely recommend this.
