Fans always tick

Pros: Keeps it cool WAAAy better than stock.
Cons: Had this for a while but the problem was 1 fan always ticked. They sent 2 new fan assembly's but EVERYONE still ticked like it had a bad bearing. I know the customer support specialist doesn't actually ship me the item but they never checked it was a very obvious sound and then they just started ...
Summary: Installed on an MSI GTX 760, replacing their "Twin Frozr" cooler It's so efficient that it caused a minor increase in my CPU temperatures, as my case exhausts through the radiator.
Pros: -Outstanding cooling performance It lowered my GPU temperatures by an average of 11 deg C over seven graphics intensive programs (two benchmarks, five games) -Quiet - Increased my overclocking headroom
Cons: - As others have noted the instructions can seem a bit lacking. Especially when it comes to heat sink placement. A link to pictures of different base line PCBs with proper heat sink attachment would be great for us novice users. -Large size may be a liability for those with small form factor cases
Summary: I've had a GTX670 for the last few years that uses the "reference cooler," which is not good. Its loud, and ineffective.. But I've just kind of dealt with that. As I'm now waiting to buy a new GPU, I thought I might as well improve my current GPU...
Pros: Nice, just as advertised, the description that is.
Cons: Only problem is it doesn't fit. It says it's for my card, Sapphire HD 7850 but it's about a quarter inch longer than the card on the end that attaches to the case so the card won't go in the slot. Maybe I could cut a big hole in the case and just let it stick out there :). Oh well, live and learn.
Summary: The temperatures at which the PC idled and load was at... -stock fan when not spinning (broken); 50c idle, 91c load. -stock fan when was working: 37c idle, 85c load. -Arctic Turbo: 35c idle, 48c load. The Arctic would have a bigger difference on idle if my chassis didn't have poor airflow.
Pros: -Easy installation. -Very quiet. -Cheap and affordable. -2 fans and thick heatsinks.
Summary: None of the cons really can bring me to subtract an egg - I am extremely pleased with the results. Just stuff to pay attention to.
Pros: Hecka worth it. Had an XFX Radeon HD 6870 and the fan began to go bad (idled around 60c, would go over 100c if I looked at it funny). Installed this, now I haven't been able to get it over 70c no matter how hard I try. Better than the stock fan ever was. It's nice and quiet, too.
Cons: As many have said, the documentation is VERY hard to follow - some of that is because it has to fit a lot of different cards, but I would have appreciated a little more direction as I've never done anything like this before. Also, it's a bit heavy - way heavier than the stock fan. It visibly puts...
Summary: I would (and did!) go for this model over the new sealed water cooling system which Newegg labels as the "Newer Version of this Item." Too many bad reviews of leaking. Build your own water system (if you have the know how) or stick with air.
Pros: Dropped the full load temp of my XFX 7870 by 20C. This is my first time buying an aftermarket cooler for a video card. It was easy to install and the performance is great!
Cons: I have to agree with other reviewers in thinking it could use a back plate. It does bend my card slightly. With huge performance comes huge size. I have no desire to get another card for SLI so taking up the extra slots doesn't bother me.
Summary: ARCTIC seems to be the only aftermarket vga cooling brand now. They charge a high price and make you dump the old thing every generation of video cards. I bought their 3-fan vga cooling solution when it first came out since they promised to give out new sockets for every new generation of video...
Pros: It is a lot more quiter and cooler than those fancy looking stock fans which are only for show.
Cons: One has to put on ram heatsinks to avoid hangs if using this cooling solution. However, those ram heatsinks are not easy to remove and voids warranty. So it really depends on how much money one has.
