  • Pros: Works Great. Definitely lowers temps.

Bad glue

Simon P., Newegg
6 December 2013
  • Summary: Still waiting for the company to answer back... Service wise, doesn't look too good...
  • Pros: Heat dissipation is way better than the original cooler and Noise level incomparably low!
  • Cons: After stripping the cooler from my GPU and choosing the optimal configuration for the chip heatsinks, I realised that the tube of glue was set and unusable. Realy a big waste of time. Be sure you check if the adhesive is usable before you undress your video card.

the good, bad, and ugly

Jason L., Newegg

  • Summary: Temps with stock cooler (idle) GPU - 41C (100% load) GPU - 73C Arctic Cooler (out of the box / no adjustments) (idle) GPU - 33C (100% load) GPU - 72C Arctic Cooler (fans forced to 100%) (idle) GPU - 33C (100% load) GPU - 62C Overall I am not impressed whatsoever especially after reading all the rave reviews for these coolers. Regardless of the RPM defect I'm still disappointed at the performance with the fans manually set to 100%. I really expected more.
  • Pros: It did reduce my temps; however only by 10C under full load not without hassles and caveats! See CONS. Plenty of thermal glue was provided - if you don't have enough you are obviously using too much. You only need a thin skim coat and if it's excessively squeezing out the sides you're using too much. Quiet - at idle its silent and at 100% fans its significantly quieter than the stock cooler
  • Cons: Performance was sub par. I installed two of these coolers on my crossfired XFX HD-695X-CNFC cards. First let me start by saying DO NOT purchase these coolers if you are running 3 or 4 way SLI / Crossfire. The cooler blocks one of the bridge connectors making the only usable connection the one nearest the mounting bracket. RPM readings are defective - After checking numerous hardware monitoring programs they all displayed the rpm's for either card bouncing anywhere fro...

Disappointed

MaW, Amazon

  • Summary: The good: Nice solid copper/aluminium heatsink and quiet fans. Plenty of little heatsinks that will fit all different cards. The Bad: Oh where to start, thermal paste never set after 11 hours, scared to clean it off as it seemed conductive, fans are thin (not much airflow), heatsink base was concave by .009" that took me 4 hours of filing with a diamond blade sharpener to get it near flat and the copper base doesn't even cover all the heatspreader.
