5 out of 5 eggsfrom 92c to 51c

Pros: i bought this cooler based on the reviews and the materials its constructed of. Well i was right on choosing this fan, even tho its a bit expensive it gets the job job very well! max load with stock cooler with no OC was 92C yikes! while with a 20% overclock and minimal case ventilation this cooler keeps it at 51-54c load

Cons: the size, but who cares how big it is when it takes 40c off ur card!

Other Thoughts: if ur running a 8800gt you need this cooler (it has a blue led to) and btw if u dont have a fan connector on ur mobo just use a molex to 3-pin adapter with the included fan controller at it works fine :)

5 out of 5 eggsFrom 90c to 40c

Pros: I replaced the stock cooler on my EVGA 8800 GT after it seemed to be getting worse and worse, even hitting 102c in some games! Idle was around 50c. I put this on (without shroud) and fired it up. I kid you not, I had to lower my scale setting on Riva Tuner to see my temps. Idles at 34c and peaks under load at 42c! Very pleased! Ambient temps are in the 20's to mid 30's now. And I don't have that scream that I used to have to listen to while running stock fan at 100% just to keep my card from burning up. The HC 92 fan is very quiet even at 100%.

Cons: The thermal paste was a bit thick, but I went with it, and it seems to be just fine. The memory heat sinks fit most of the chips fine, but I had to improvise using some extra square ones (that were included) instead of the long ones they suggested for the smaller IC's because of the way they were laid out. Hopefully the double stick tape they have on them holds up and they don't come tumbling off.

Other Thoughts: Good buy with the rebate. Looked at others that may have been cheaper, but would have needed to order fan or memory heatsinks in addition, so this seemed to be the best deal.

5 out of 5 eggsMost awesome

Pros: Replaced the incredibly bad stock cooler on my wife's EVGA 8800GT (all aluminum... Might as well been made of wood...) Still higher that I'd like idle (55C'ish), but at about 1/5 fan speed it never crosses the 70C mark under load. The stock would spike over 80C at 100%.... Very easy install, and tons of heat sinks for memory, etc....

Cons: None, really...

Other Thoughts: If you have one of those 8800 series that are pretty much fire starters, you can't go wrong with this.

4 out of 5 eggsEffective, but with caveats

Pros: - Great cooling ability - went from 63C idle to 41C idle, loaded in the 50C's now
- Fan adjusted at about 2/3 so it is fairly quiet, but still cools adequately
- Nice mounting mechanism
- Good value with $40 rebate

Cons: - Useless dry paste
- Memory heatsink tape seems like it may not hold, esp. with the heatsinks hanging upside down
- Takes 3 slots! Not sure if the angle of the fan gives any real advantage, could have been designed flat

Other Thoughts: Mounted on eVga 8800GT, and got a tremendous decrease in core temp, likely in memory temps as well. Waiting for the memory heatsinks to start falling off... The 3 slots it takes are absolutely ridiculous, they should have designed this for 2 slots max.

3 out of 5 eggsok

Pros: it works. comes with the chip heat sinks.

Cons: huge and loud. fan controller does not fit in the case, like drive bay where i want it. i used a sunbeam controller and the fan was still loud. ended up removing it and using a 50mm fan i got with an old thermaltake volcano cpu cooler. a few zip ties and it is mounted. with that i can turn the speed down so i don't hear it during normal use. then turn it up to 5k rpm when gaming

Other Thoughts: i put this on a gigabyte 8800gt oc. it came with a antech cooler stock and that was ok but a bit louder than i wanted. i got this one because of the price after rebate and i think it was a good buy. it does have 1 more heat pipe than the stock one but the huge fan and cover take up an extra slot and it does not cool much more.

for the current price i think you can find a better deal.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks/looks great!

Pros: Easy installation
Blue Lighting
Adjustable Fan
Quiet at low speed--Supercool at high speeds

Cons: I couldnt figure out a nice way to mount the fan controller. Also, the controller is white which doesnt match my PC at all.

Other Thoughts: I didnt realize it came with lighting (blue), but it goes well with my other blue LEDs.
I also didnt realize it would be a manual fan speed-controller. It works well, you just have to remember to adjust it as necessary.

5 out of 5 eggsVery cool, literally!

Pros: Lowers my idle temps from 60C to 40C and gaming temps from 80C to 60C on my 8800GT with the fan almost off??? This is a definite buy! It was very easy to install and it makes the graphics card look 100 times more awesome. It comes with a lot of mini heatsinks for your graphics card RAM that were very easy to install.

Cons: Installing the mini green heatsinks on the board was interesting. The manual only shows the placement of the mini heatsinks on the 8800GTS and I wasn't sure where they all went (the RAM ones were obvious though). I improvised and came up with my own placement that worked, it helped looking at the thermal pads on the stock heatsink for placement.

Other Thoughts: I've heard that the thermal paste is dry, so I didn't even bother opening it and I just used some Arctic Silver I had.

4 out of 5 eggsEffective cooler

Pros: Far superior to stock cooler; lowered the Nvidia 8800GT idle temperature by over 50 degrees F on mid-speed for the GPU, chips and printed-circuit board (each have separate temperature monitoring). Even under load, the temp is considerably lower than the standard fan's minimum/idle temp. Variable speed control (optional) provided for this fan as a remote corded device to balance noise versus RPMs. Allows decorative cover to be removed for even lower GPU temps. Glows with blue LED lights and allows three physical configurations (with cover, without cover, without fan). With the $40 rebate, this purchase has to be considered a superior buy. The quality of the fan mounting is terrific but the tape used for the chip heatsinks are barely adequate; I hope the tape's glue with hold over the long haul. Three heatsink sizes are provided plus you may end up with extras.

Cons: The fan/heat sink is a bit wide covering a couple PCI slots. Three-pin (vs. four) fan power connector which requires connection to motherboard and speed not controllable from GPU card. Individual chip heatsinks are held by tape glue so some are likely to fall off over time. Newegg had shipped within a couple of days but it took UPS "Brown" nine days to deliver after "rescheduling".

Other Thoughts: Installation was painless but I didn't use included thermal paste since other reviewers complained and I have extra CPU paste handy.

4 out of 5 eggsZEROtherm Hurricane HC92-8800 UFO VGA Cooler

Pros: Awesome GPU cooler. IT decreased y temp. from 65c to a cool 40c and gaming from a 85c to a 48c on my Evga8800gt
(btw Evga stock heatsinks suck;)). Not Really hard to install like i've ahd to do for some people's Gpu heatsinks i've had to change. You can adjust the fan speed which i think is very helpful, either if overclocking or gaming. I haven't done any overclocking in this bad boy yet but i think i might have to in order to play crysis on high settings. Anyways i definately recommend you getting this graphics card cooler and i also love the design they did on it.

Cons: Only 2 bad things about this product that i really didn't like.
First of all like a lot of other complains, the thermal grease is way too DRY!!!! I had to go out and get some.
Second of all, the fan/heatsink takes up 3 pci-e ports and i really did not like that, especially with my new tv tuner coming in. I guess this means i'm going to have to remove my wifi. Only errors with this card.

Other Thoughts: I wish that they had mad it only take up 2 pci-e ports, but other than that and the thermal grease i love this cooler.
=D
