Pros: Installed on a stock R9 290x after getting tired of the wind tunnel cooler that it comes with.
After playing Crysis 3 on High for 30 minutes, the core and vrm temps hovered around 65c, with the fans on max.
Even on max the fan is barely audible if you're playing a game or listening to music.
Cons: Took a couple hours to figure out how to install the cooler, while triple checking to make sure that everything was done right.
Other Thoughts: Use a fan control software.
During my first run with this the vrms were hitting borderline uncomfortable temperatures (107c~) as a direct result of the fans not going above 25% because the stock card doesn't bring its own fan on until its core hits a rather high temperature (which this cooler was keeping well below that, even with the fans on lowest).
Once I realized this and set up my own profile for the fans this worked absolutely flawlessly.
