Summary: Had a few problems during installation in the HD 6850 dealing with hight of surface components, took some major work to fix it and even after that the temps went up. im very disappointed.
Pros: Very Silent even with the turbo module
Cons: Load Temps went up almost 10C from 68-69C to 77-78C Installed correctly with all the provided heatsinks and yet the temperature went up, the only reason im keeping it is because its more silent than the stock cooler, though im very close to replacing it.
Summary: It's a great heatsink. It is not a good passive cooling system.
Pros: Large, well built heatsink. Heat was fairly evenly distributed across the surface of the heatsink very quickly. Fits on card great. I have this card: SAPPHIRE 100242L Radeon HD 4850. Purchased it because of overheating problems related to StarCraft II.
Cons: *My video card overheated within 5 minutes of StarCraft II. Everything is installed properly. I aimed an extra processor fan at it and it keeps my card at idle temp (41 c) even under heavy loads. *Not enough mini-heatsinks for ram and voltage regulators. I was 2-3 short and had to dremel-cut the ...
Summary: I'm not as disappointed as I might be, the 3870s existing heat sinks were headed for failure anyway, one was having trouble spinning up the existing fan. Buying this was an attempt to extend their life on my backup rig for cheap. As it is I replaced the 3870s in crossfire with a single 4650.
Pros: easy installation of the main cooler itself. plastic clips lock it solidly in place.
Cons: hard to route the crossfire connectors through it. I knew this, so no big deal. The other con? The memory heat sinks. I had wrote this off initially as poor setup\cleaning on the part of the installers. Nope. Carefully cleaned and mounted the heat sinks, only to eventually have them fall off over...
Summary: Für mich so nicht zu gebrauchen. Einerseits ist der nicht wirklich leise. Noctua kann das um Welten besser. Und andererseits kann man diesen Lüfter nicht einmal am Mainboard anschließen sondern nur mit Stromanschluss am Netzteil. Für mich deshalb uninteressant und unpraktisch.
