Pros: Cool and quiet, just what you want a cooler to do
Cons: Didn't last long. Fan died after a few weeks and had to replace with one that can't be controlled by the GPU.
Now after a few months the pump sprang a leak and leaked the oily fluid all over my card and motherboard.
Contacted Arctic about RMA and haven't heard anything back in 3 days yet, that's not a good sign.
Other Thoughts: Nice while it lasted, but very disappointed in the longevity of this product. Leaked after less than 3 months.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Install is much simpler than I expected. It does take some time but once you get the hang of it, its not difficult. I did two cards and the second one breezed by. Some of the steps are unnecesary but just there for safety. My mining temps on my R9 290s dropped over 10C and I was able to overclock a bit now as before I was having them throttle down. Temps before were about 85-90C running at 937Mhz, Now they run at 950-1000MHz and are at 67-75C.
Cons: Wish it had more of the thermal pad. Seemed a bit skimpy so I had to use pretty skinny strips on my VRMs and memory. Would have preferred to have about 30% more to get a thicker strip on there.
Wish it had some way to mount a fan to the heatsink, if you don't have a case fan directly hitting the heatsink the temps can get quite high especially if you are doing a SLI/Crossfire.
Other Thoughts: A little more thermal pad and a fan mount on the heatsink and this thing would be perfect.READ FULL REVIEW
