ARCTIC Accelero Hybrid II-120, Liquid/Air Combo Extreme Cooling for Hi-Performance nVidia/AMD VGA

Pros: Back heat sink is VERY efficient.

Cons: Not big enough to cover the card on a EVGA GTX770, so the clips that hold it to the card can't go all of the way around. The main board also has a flat heatsink already on it and that makes the entire unit too thick for the clips to even fit. The card must be checking for the 2 old fans speeds, because when the new single radiator fan is hooked up, it won't pass it's own POST test.

Hoses are too short to install "cleanly". I have a full tower case. Even with all that room, it was a bit tight fitting this in with a CPU cooling kit, too. I had one option (to install at the top of the case) and the hoses were about 4-5 inches too short to make it look right. I could make it reach, but the hoses were completely tight and did not look good.

Other Thoughts: I had a feeling that a "one size fits all" would not work, and I was right. The GOOD thing about the whole 3 hour process (taking apart my card, hooking everything up, then having to put it all back to stock) was that I discovered that there was entirely too much heatsink compund on the card to begin with. I had to clean it and reapply, so after I put on the correct amount, the card temp dropped by 3°C just doing THAT.
