Pros: This had my expectations high and it was a bit of a long wait but well worth it. This beat the MX-4 I had previously by over 10 degree Celsius. I even ran this compound on PRIME95 for over 10 hours and it never broke over 160 C. I am using a Corsair H60 and two Noctua Industrial Fans @ 3000rpms. Even before, the configuration was the same except the DX-1 and it is still going strong as I type this with my overclock of 4.7 GHZ // idle // @38 C. ~ 4.7 GHZ // full-load // @ 50 C . Also note that my idle is kind of high due to all the power-saving features of the CPU are shut off in the BIOS, so the temps would be much much lower if they were enabled. Excellent thermal paste, would buy again in the future.
Cons: Came from overseas so had to wait, other than that, nothing.
Other Thoughts: Give it a shot, you won't be disappointed.

Pros: The Actual Core Heat sink fit just fine with the card. It even fit with the stock back plate. I ended up only using the core heat sink and water radiator. It won't go over 36 C. Its overclocked by 10% at 675 core clock. That;s the only thing from this purchase I got to use. Just glad it fit.
Cons: So I ordered this expected this to work since it said that it would fit a 780. Little did I know that the Asus 780 GTX TI, is too big for this thing. I tried to mount the back plate, that didn't work. The card is too wide to fit the brackets and only one side could take them. It did take a while to install the back plate on the 780 GTX TI, as I ended up using the back plate that came with it originally and removed the stock cooler. The back plate extends so much taking up two slots, it hit my memory sticks on my Asus Board.
Other Thoughts: I got to use half of what came with this purchase and wasted a lot of time trying to make this work. Please be aware the back plate does not fit with the 780 GTX TI, but the core heat sink with radiator works and fits pretty well. That did its job, the back plate... eh, not so much.READ FULL REVIEW
