4 out of 5 eggs Wonky install, awesome performance 01/26/2014

This review is from: ARCTIC Accelero TT 690 VGA Cooler - GTX 690, Dual Quiet 120mm PWM Fans, Extreme Cooling

Pros: Super cool GPU card! dropped idle temps from 40C to 25-27C, and load temps from mid-60's to 45-50C. Install was fairly smooth, with a few hangups.

Cons: Stripped two screws mounting the cooler, had to find some 2-48 screws to replace them & re-tap aluminum block for mounting. (I don't think I was over-torquing these, but documentation leaves a lot to be desired regarding this. Factory ones were SUPER tight.)

I have a gigantic case (Raven 02), and this thing barely fits. Not really a con, just info.

Other Thoughts: This product has kind of a cheesy support mechanism with the foam blocks. My tower allows the card to be positioned vertically, but I am still concerned considering the movement this cooling device allows the PCB to undergo. I'd like to see a better mechanism created for this, and will most likely end up machining some type of support bracket to keep the card in place.
