Akust Aluminum Chip Heatsink - 0.59
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs r9 290 application 08/30/2014

This review is from: Akust Aluminum Chip Heatsink - 0.59"x0.59"x0.32"- 16Pack

Pros: perfect number almost perfect fit on the vram of my r9 290 gpu. purchased these with a nzxt kraken g10 water bracket for my gpu and these were able to fit under the bracket. also exactly the number of heat sinks needed.

Cons: i had to cut one heat sink in half as to get it to fit on the bottom vram or the water block for the gpu wouldnt fit. nota big deal not the heat sinks fault no eggs lost.

Other Thoughts: these things worked great!

AeroCool DS 140mm Blue 140mm Patented Dual layered blades with noise and shock reduction frame
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: silent cant stress that enough you cant hear the fan at all i have two on an h90 radiator running max and they cant be heard. push out alot of air. i have 10 other fans in my case ranging from 80 to 120 mm and these push more air then all of them and are much quiter

Cons: the 3 pin extender isnt just an extender has a small cap in the shielding dont use on other components ie your pump for an h90 will melt the wireing.

5 out of 5 eggs nothing short of amazing 08/24/2014

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-W1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: has dropped my average operating temp on an r9 290 by roughly 30c under load. during bf4 on ultra setting a good 4 hour session id hit 90c and the card would start to throttle.
now with this and a corsair h90 and (2) aerocool ds 140mm fans push pull config on radiator im sitting at 58c and i cant get it higher using benchmark tests playing hours of bf4 maxxed zero issues

Cons: the install isnt hard but if your not a real big tech guy its kinda scary tearing apart a $500 dollar card lol.

doesnt cover vram well

i purchased 12 aluminum heat sinks for the vram and used thermal adhesive to increase the surface area for cooling seems to have worked out well.

Other Thoughts: my build
