Summary: Put his on an XFX 6870 and it fit very nicely, but only has a 2pin fan plug. Thanks XFX for being cheap on the fan. I used the molex setup and read the instructions for it and Wha-la, non working fans. I know all things don't work 100% of the time, but rma time vs working time?
Pros: Great reviews and high hopes. Solid heatsinks and they stick well so far. Sorry for the negative review, but the fans did not work. Wanted to buy a replacement fan setup for cheap from the company, but it's overseas and doesn't use paypal as a form of payment. I have a problem with overseas compa...
Cons: Fans did not work on molex setup. High hopes, but I gambled by ordering online and lost this round. I'M NOT OUT YET!!!! New egg gets another sale, just not one of these again.
Summary: All in all, great cooler for my HD4870 after the stock one died. Lowered temps from around 60C idle, 90C load to 35C idle, 60C load. The one big issue which made me knock off two eggs is the included RAM/VRM heatsinks. They come with peel off thermal adhesive tape, and they don't hold at all.
Pros: Great cooling compared to stock SAPPHIRE HD4870 cooler. Incredibly quiet even when at 100%.
Summary: I made this work on my gtx670, i got 2 of the 4 screws to match in a diagonal patern, so the 2 diagonal screws held it tight enough to work, then my 2 pci-e plugs was very VERY tight fit as well, once installed/modded/rigged it did drop my temp's very well ...would recommend to other's!
Pros: decent price! cool's well dropped my max temp 14c from 84c load to 70c load quite fans
Cons: I listened to a reviewer of this product saying he bought this for his gtx670 FTW and that it fit but was tight...well my msi gtx670 didnt come close to fitting...my bad for not researching more..
Summary: For maximum cooling, remove thermal tape on all heatsinks and use actual "thermal adhesive". Ensure proper fan placement to vent 790fxta-ud5/16gbGskills/Corsair650/955be/hd5850/2x24"monitor and some other stuff
Pros: fits my Asus 5850. Dual fan is wayyyyyy more efficient. Comes with 4 and 3 pin 12v/7v connector, and come with thermal past applied to main heat-sink. My temps went from 47/93 to 38/57.
Cons: Buy thermal adhesive, the smaller heat sinks will come off because thermal tape is just not efficient.
Summary: This won't be a huge issue, I'll be initiating the return process as soon as I'm done with this review and I'm sure newegg will get me my money back, I pulled off the stock heatsink and the thermal paste was all dried and cracked, so I just replaced that, and hopefully my card will stay cool enough...
Pros: It's not as expensive or as large as other coolers, but I can't speak on cooling performance.
Cons: I wasn't absolutely positive this cooler would be compatible with my video card, an EVGA GTX 560 superclocked, and it turns out it was not. That doesn't detract from the quality this product, I just couldn't find anywhere whether or not this cooler was compatible with a 560, and I want to let you...
Summary: Bought an ATI HD 4870 from eebay for $45, and quickly realized why. This ran really hot, about 5 or 10 minutes into a game would just shut off. Bought this fan and now my temps show like 46 to 49, even when i've been playing a game for an hour or two. and it's also really quiet.
Pros: cools way better than expected and very quiet.
Cons: price...I'm super cheap, i wish this were >30 bucks. I wanted to give it 4 eggs because of the price, but decided on 5 because it cools better than I thought it would and its really quiet.
Summary: I might end up watercooling eventually again, I can never stay away no matter how many times I try, but this cooler is very very quiet, and does a terrific job cooling. I only docked an egg for the tight fit even though it is listed as compatable.
Pros: Picked this up for my GTX670 F T W card after playing with it for a few weeks. Mainly played Skyrim at 5040x1050 and temps were reaching 79-80 max. It might be safe but I wanted lower since I am used to water cooling temps. Was nervous this would not fit and it was very tight, the power connector...
Cons: Only con is that it is not a perfect fit. Maybe it just happens to be my F T W moedel, and I hope the pressure on the power connectors does not cause long term issues, but it does not seem to bad so I'll keep it for now.
