Pros: -does an excellent job
-has extra parts incase you loose something
-very high quality product easy to install
-didnt read the instructions but the video on zalmanusa.com is very straitforward and makes installation a snap. burn the manual and watch the movie
Cons: -why didnt i buy this sooner
-why does ati include such a flimsy heatsink with a 500 dollar video card
-the back support bar will lay ontop of a ramsink on the x800 video cards you must grind it down for it to fit properly
Overall Review: i am 500% pleased with this product. it was a toss up between this and the arctic silencer and after reading reviews on it i saw the silencer barely cools better than stock. nice GIMMICK that it blows air out of the case tho.
heres the numbers for the zalman:
stock x800 cooler:
and im expecting a couple degrees drop after the compound cures. couldnt have asked for better results i would pay the 25 for this all over again.
