Summary: Only stick-on heatsinks I've ever bought that didn't fall off eventually. Everything about these is great, from the quality of the heatsink itself, to the thermal pads, and heck even the packaging is top notch.
Pros: Great heatsinks. I bought these to cool the VRM chips on my motherboard. They do the job well. The thermal adhesive on these is the best I've ever seen, hands down.
Summary: If only they came with taller heights like that of the full length VRM solutions for specific boards such as the MST-66/88. The dimensions however were an exact fit for the VRM clusters on a Gigabyte 880GMA-USB3 v3.1 motherboard.
Pros: - Adheres strongly without coming off providing the surface areas are properly cleaned prior to application and then heat cycled after. - The Thermal tape comes already applied for an effort free application. - Copper being soft as it is was a breeze to reshape 2 pins due to blocking a CPU power ...
Cons: None that I can foresee really. They are heatsinks and serve the purpose compared to not having them in the first place.
Summary: I've noted some temp data Prior to these heat sinks my idle temps were 58 °C VGA, 39 CPU, & 36 MB. Under load the temps were 88 VGA, 50 CPU, & 41 MB. After sticking them to various components my temps read the same at idle and under load my CPU was 2 degrees lower while my VGA was 2 warmer and my MB...
Summary: If they work this good on FB-DIMMS they will probably do a tremendous job on a Video Card Memory part
Pros: Excellent and it comes with Thermal Tape which i didn't see in it's description. I used these to cool the FB-DIMMS in my Mac Pro which tend to run hot. and they dropped the temp by a 25 degrees. I am pleased beyond words
Summary: I got several packages of these for memory and VRM cooling on my 2 HD4870s when I moved them to water cooling. They definitely move a lot of heat, you can feel them getting warm when they cards are under load.
Pros: Economical, can be used in a variety of places, very sturdy hold with the default thermal tape, but gives you the option of removing them later (compared to thermal epoxy). They seem quite effective at sucking heat off of whatever they're attached to.
Summary: Fits perfectly in the router, fit perfect in between my two 5770s in crossfire (put these on the bottom card). Will probably be buying more just to have on hand.
Pros: Solidly built, as to expected with forged copper. Tape is pretty sticky, I haven't had any fall off. I'm using 4 of these to cool the radio cards and cpu on a NETGEAR WNDR3300 router, along with a 60mm fan. Keeps them from overheating/dropping off. I used the other 4 on my video card RAM, and it ...
Cons: Wish there were more to a package (10-12) but hey, I knew what I was buying, and it's not dropping an egg for it.
