13 May 2015
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...
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 rarely write a review but man, did this product deliver all that was advertised. If anyone else is curious about this product working with an nVidia Quadro 4000, it does and its wonderful. My Quadro was easily hitting temps.
Summary: I bought this to bring down the temperature of my aging GTX 660 ti, that was easily reaching temps of 89c and hotter during times of extensive usage, I eventually had to download software to control the fan due to the card dialing back its performance to compensate for the heat on stock fan...
Summary: Compatibility: 1. The backside cooler will not fit with full height motherboard heatsinks near the first PCI Express slot. Some boards use half full-height and half half-height heatsink in which case it fits with no trouble (e.g. ASRock 970 Pro R3). 2.
Excellent cooling, semi-complicated install, takes up an extra slot

Summary: TL;DR version: Be careful with the install, understand the size of this thing will take up an extra PCI slot, watch your temps decrease 10-15 degrees. Bottom line: love it! And it's quiet to boot which is perfect for an HTPC gaming setup.
