worked well for 4months

 

machine blue screened, over and over and after troubleshooting found the tension plate in the back had lost it spring so the heat sink was loose on gpu, had to re bend tension plate. four months into this vga cooler it is total garbage, go with another...

worked great, slim design can be used in crossfire x double space with great airflow

scythe fan only worked for 3months then gave up the ghost, had to rig a 120mm fan up with wire ties, cheap cheap cheap

Excellent Value and 2 Slots!

 

I put this on my XFX 6970 (the one without the back plate instead of the initial reference model, without a BIOS switch and what not). The stock cooler would idle at the high 40's. When under load from a game I would average 93c, sometimes going as...

Fairly cheap ; Works very well ; 2 slots ; Fan controller

Horrendous VRAM sinks, or at least the paste used on them ; Fan connects to 3-pin connector on motherboard ; Very wide (might not fit some cases) ; Can be a huge pain to install due to it's design

Good for SLI setup

 

Be aware that the heatsink sticks out pretty far so you may have to remove any side panel case fans(i had to). Also, for anyone installing this in a GTX 460 you will want to use the A3 mounting holes (this is not mentioned in the awful directions).

Super thin, I bought this because my PCIx slots were very close and setting up 2 GTX 460s in SLI completely blocked my top cards fans, giving it an idle temp of about 60c. After installing this heatsink the idle temp immediately dropped to about 48c...

The directions are nearly impossible to understand. I've installed a ton of heatsinks over the years and I couldn't imagine these directions being that bad. They didn't even include directions for the GTX 460 even though they drilled holes on the...

Great on a 6870

 

VRM temps under load are pretty similar to stock, seems the 6870's don't need as much cooling there since the fan doesn't even sit directly over them. I was able to reuse the stock mounting bracket vs using the included one which has a rubber bumper...

Massive temperature drops on my 6870! OCCT GPU stress test at 1024x786 res, shader complexity set to 8 would bring the stock cooler with fans on auto to 41% fan speed (forgot what fan rpm that was) with temps at 89-90C after five minutes! Running the...

Total pain to install. Although lower profile above the card than the Musashi with it's threaded posts and thumb nuts, you're basically poking screws through the mounting holes blind. There are no heatsinks included that properly fit the VRM section of...

Good cooler...but...

 

A great cooler for experienced modders who don't mind straying from the included instructions.

Okay I now have one of these installed on a 6970 and about to install another. Here's my quick review ; 1. The cooler itself works very well. At full fan speed it's much quieter than the stock cooler and will cool as well as the stock fan at 60% of max...

The minuses are ; 1. Stupid 3M thermal tape that doesn't work. Soak the heat sinks in 91% isopropanol and scrape that stuff off. Use thermal epoxy instead ; 2. Doesn't come with PWM fans. I ordered them separately but, even then you need to mod the...

Quiet and cool temps

 

I have a gtx 470 SLI setup and when playing crysis my card where extremely loud and hot. With 2 of these my load temps are between 60-65 celcius compared to 90 ; and the noise level is amazing

A bit awkward to install

Not Recommended for a gtx460

 

Scythe is among my favorite fan vendors. They were due a lemon, I suppose. They tried to make a better 460 cooling solution, but it just needs work. This was the last ditch effort to preserve the usefulness of both my gtx460 and PNY. I failed in both...

looks sturdy, no sharp edges, and not nearly as heavy as it appears ; handy external speed control

the contact surface area is far less than that of the chip, nearly half. In otherwords, whether you have a flush seating between the chip, paste and hs, there is an equal amount of chip surface open to air. Even with the fan on full-throttle, a 460...
