4 out of 5 eggsDropped VRM1 Temps

Pros: With my Kraken G10, I was able to achieve much better overclocks and I needed some vrm heatsinks to keep up with these new overclocks. This was the only heatsink I could find that didn't need an entire cooler purchased with it and wouldn't short the card.

Cons: Price is a bit steep for what you get. And the heatsink won't cool past .063V added to card. Which allowed for a decent overclock but not nearly as far as it could have gone. Anything higher puts me back towards 95c temps on VRM1.
Also, VRM2 temps didn't move. Technically they went up a couple degrees, but that could be attributed to ambient temps.

5 out of 5 eggsDrops VRM temps tremendously

Pros: Keeps VRM nice and cool
Everything fits like a glove

Cons: The smallest "T" heatsink probably needs thermal adhesive as the contact points for the tape are very small and its not exactly super secure. Not enough to remove an egg tho, its on there now...

Other Thoughts: I do not break high 60s with a water cooled 290 and the NZXT bracket and that is with a rink a dink H50 cooler.

Note, this is a 290 overclocked to 1175/1450 and that temp is max during a benchmark.

If you have a 290, this is so cheap its crazy to NOT use it.

3 out of 5 eggsNot Perfect, but Useful

Pros: Well-machined parts
Directions are pretty straight-forward

Cons: Doesn't fit properly on my Sapphire R9 290x Tri-X OC. I made some modifications and effectively got it to work-- but it doesn't fit natively on that card.
Price-- as others have said.

Other Thoughts: Glad that I bought this kit for my 290x with a Kraken G10 and AIO water cooler-- it does help decrease VRM/VRAM temps on my card; however, I did have to make some modifications to make it work since it doesn't fit right out of the box.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Cons: NONE

4 out of 5 eggsgood fit

Pros: Does exactly what you would expect it to and what you need it to. Works great on R9 290 cards.

VRAM temps are great and all my memory chips now have heatsinks that fit

Cons: PRICE - ridiculously expensive for what you get, which is about 30 cents worth of aluminum and double sided tape and screws. Raises total cost of ownership for your Gelid cooler to a near unacceptable level.

Other Thoughts: Non-optional purchase if you want to use the Gelid cooler on your R9 290 cards. Pretty sure that's why it costs so much, they know we'll need it and have to buy it.

5 out of 5 eggsSimple and elegant

Pros: nothing much to say; it does its job and it does it well

Cons: the screws a little misaligned with the Radeon HD 7970 rigging but the thermal compound, well placed Kraken cooler and a modified screw should do the trick (works pretty well so far)

Other Thoughts: This thing is more designed for R9 - R6 series. Might pick one up one day when I don't have bills piled up to my eyeballs.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great with non ref 290x

Pros: Cheap
Works great
easy to install
works with NZXT G10
Works on non reference GIGABYTE GV-R929XOC-4GD no issues

VRM Temps @ full load with G10
VRM1 56C (under the fan)
VRM2 65C (towards the front of the card


as you can see the VRM temps have gone from their 100+ without the heatsinks to a well maintained 50-60 with

Cons: VRM2 heatsink tape is a little cheap but gets the job done. may take a few mins to figure out how to apply it correctly.
