I am running this on a 465gtx evga card. It is outstanding. My card is running at 825񳉢񳎈, and maxes out at 62 degrees. Cant ask for anything much better. Too loud if you plug the fans into the video card. I strongly suggest employing the supplied adapter and plug it into the motherboard. That way you can adjust the fan speed in the bios. i turned the fans down to 55 % and temps only went up two degrees.

I have an EVGA GTX 460. My stock temps have been 36 idle, 80 full load. My Icy Vision temps are 26 idle, 50 complete load. It is quiet. You require to plug it into your motherboard in order to get auto fan control. If you plug it into the video card, it will run at complete speed (�RPM). Make positive your motherboard has fantastic fan speed handle. If you don't do this, it will run at full (loud) 26dB. Took me 3 hours to set it up ... but I'm overly cautious.

Keeps my formerly overheating GTX 285 COOL. I haven't seen it go more than 45C however and the stock cooler was letting it beyond 80C, exactly where it would lock up the computer. I had to blast the fan at almost max just to play games. Now I don't even need to have to be concerned about it. -The "thermal pads" for attaching the tiny heatsinks are nothing additional than flimsy tiny strips of double-sided adhesive. The fun part is that it's virtually Impossible to pull the strips off of each side to expose it. You pulled off the plastic side initial? Good, now the paper side is going to be not possible to get rid of and vice versa. I got three accomplished in about 20 minutes, destroyed several much more, and gave up. I attached the rest by means of a diverse strategy that went a LOT faster. These thermal pads are the purpose this factor loses eggs. I'm glad that it's functioning so well, but the utter aggravation of those pathetically, inexcusably awful pads was barely worth it.-The directions could be a lot greater. Some of the diagrams have been virtually microscopic and they weren't usually clear. Gelid needs to make two pages: One particular for ATI, a single for Nvidia, each 2 sided. Make space for larger print and illustrations.-Tons of tiny components, often confusing.-Minor bowing exactly where it attaches, appears unavoidable. I was concerned initially as the surface of the copper plate on the cooler is a lot smaller sized than the GTX 285 die, but I guess it doesn't make a distinction as it's running nice and cool. I guess my board is non-reference as most of the heatsinks shown have been unnecessary. The stock cooler in no way touched a lot of the areas (ie, mosfets), but they may possibly be valuable for overclocking. This cooler appears like it would be wonderful for non-reference boards as the copper plate and some heatpipes are the only issue that get close sufficient to hit anything.If you want to get this, do so, but be positive you have some Arctic Ceramique or some other way to effectively attach the tiny heatsinks. Don't even bother messing with the garbage thermal pads they include things like. You're attempting to separate a paper-thin sticky pad from a paper-thin backing. It doesn't function also effectively. I employed a tiny dab of Arctic Silver 5 and tiny tabs of Krazy Glue on each corner of the RAM chips to attach the sinks. YMMV.

Pretty uncomplicated to install, dropped the temps on my 5870 from 76ㆆc to 58ㅴc in furmark, match my non-reff sapphire board (and really should match any seriously so long as the heatsink mount holes are the similar spacing as the reference style), comes with RAM sinks. Sticky tim tape is really hard to apply to RAM sinks, fans are a bit noisy for me, and ARE NOT PWM FANS. Seriously gelid what the f? I seldom get this worked up about goods but its a ์ cooler that you ship with a 4 pin cord for the fans, but they aren't PWM so they run complete blast when plugged straight to the gpu fan header. How stupid is that? Sure they come with a 3 pin/molex adapter, but my motherboard header is blocked by the cooler so I can't use it, and hooking it to molex power would generate the identical continual one hundred% outcome. Anyway this is nonetheless a kicking gpu cooler general. Just want the fans would run at significantly less then 100% when I'm sitting at the desktop.

Keeps my gtx 470 at 34c idle & doesn't get hotter than 70c in the course of game play. Did I mention how quiet it is Adore IT! A bit tricky with the assembly but absolutely nothing the average buildercan't deal with.

Strong cooler and good performance. Cools quite properly. Hmmm where to start. I am no amateur builder. with over 12 years of practical experience, it made me sweat to set up it. The pads are a pain. Inexpensive way of carrying out it. Instructions....neglect about it. There is no directions for what to use on exactly where. The aspect that upset me was there is no fan controller. They run at max no matter what you use. I had to use my mobo fan settings in bios to put it down to 60% for it to be silent. I bought this and Zalman VF3000F(GTX480) for my sli set up on rampage III extreme. I would buy the zalman once again. super uncomplicated set up. took me 15 minutes total from a-z!!!! it's worth the additional โ and much less headache.

* QUIET & Efficient!* Keeps my overclocked GTX 470 below 53* Celsius beneath full load.It is super quiet! none! I tested my video card with the cooler repeatedly in disbelief with MSI Kombustor. My temps did not go above 53* making use of the highest settings. I am so incredibly amazed. I would give this cooler 6 eggs if it have been doable.If you play games, Fold@Home, or just like taking your Pc to the limit, this tends to make a Excellent addition.

Dropped my GTX470 (know for heating troubles) from about 50-60degrees C idle to 30-35 degrees C. I run WoW on Ultra settings...stock cooler I'd run 85-90 degrees and the fan was so loud you couldn't hear your self consider. With this cooler I sit involving 45-50 degrees, and I cannot hear it operating above my case fans. I would strongly suggest this to anybody with a GTX4XX because they all have heating issues. Guidelines aren't the best through the set up. Took me about an hour mainly because of all the small sticky items that go on the memory chips. Fans are not "smart". My video card will not manage their speed, but a fan controller would if you wanted. Get A single!

Quite quiet,Glows below UV lighting,thermal paste included not to massive compared to some other VGA coolers out there. None for Me,Even so it does take up three expansion slots so that may be a con for some. Installed this on my XFX HD 6870 Black Edition.Everything i necessary was in the package for the VRM and memory heatsinks.Gelid has an set up guide on there internet site for 6K series.I was quite impressed with this cooler it dropped my load temp from roughly 75c to 45c and my idle 50c to 25c and almost silent even though performing so.

Good GPU cooler, idle temp of EVGA GTX470 at 50oC ㆃoC at load Useless memory heatsinks stick-patches... they falloff consistently. I had to use rubber pencil eraser, cut out pieces and put them involving the massive gpu heatsink and each of those little heatsinks to maintain them from falling... Appears they require to go back to drawing board on this a single. Gpu cooling is useless if theres no memory cooling.

Cons: Provided instructions lack detail. Fan connector does not connect to GPU onboard fan header (on HD 6850). Not PWM.

Pros: Full copper cold plate. Good design. Good looks. All hardware included (minus screwdriver). Great performance—delivers what it claims.
Comment:
I've had heating issues with my aging PowerColor Radeon HD 6850, especially through the summer days. On one of the cooler days through the recent heatwave (ambient of 27-30C), it would idle anywhere from 47 to 51C that I recorded. Under load, running FurMark's burn-in test, temps would shoot up to the 90s within forty seconds, and I would usually abort the run because the temperatures didn't seem to plateau. One time I let it run for exactly 2 minutes, and the temp was 102C. (I highly do not recommend doing that.) It even got up to similar levels running CineBench's OpenGL benchmark.So now I have this Gelid Icy Vision Rev. 2. (Yes, the product on this page is Revision 2. Check the product number.) I'll say now: This was such a good investment.The packaging doesn't provide much information about the product, but it was really easy to open, which is a huge plus for me since at first impression I thought it was one of those "clamshell" plastic packs. All hardware is included except for a screwdriver, which is convenient. Although the provided thermals pads and heatsinks are compartmentalized into their own little plastic baggies, all of the screws, standoffs, and nuts (34 in total) are all in one bag together. The instruction pamphlet lacks detail, which I think is a little iffy for a "universal" cooler.In spite of less than stellar instructions, installation is pretty straightforward: remove the old cooler, clean the dies, attach heatsinks, attach backplate, apply TIM, piece together, tighten, and have a beer. I know some people have issues with the thermal pads when attaching the VRAM heatsinks, but I can't comment on the quality or efficacy of the thermal pads since I didn't even use them. I had some Arctic Silver Alumina thermal adhesive, so I mixed very small batches (with a bit of Arctic Cooling MX-2 that I've had sitting around), applied some to the corners of the dies, then sat the heatsinks with light pressure while keeping that pressure for up to a minute.Also, if you have an HD 6850 and are reading this, the fan cable couldn't connect to the GPU onboard fan header because the connector is a different size. I don't know how many other 6850s or video cards in general this would apply to. I just connected it to a 3-pin (Note: This is not PWM) header on my motherboard.I would also like to note a few things about my PowerColor 6850. When I removed the shroud, there was way, way too much thermal grease on there. It was all over the entire heatsink's coldplate and about 3mm at eyeball measure thick throughout. There was an imprint left in the TIM from the GPU die, and the coldplate still wasn't visible at the bottom of the imprint. Also, there was some kind of tape or high-viscosity glue stuck onto one of the direct-touch heatpipes, the kind of stuff you would find in some kinds of packaging. It reminded me of 3M restickable clear mounting tape, and even a little bit of that tack glue thing holding packages of Oscar Mayer lunch meats together but thicker. Horrible QC there, PowerColor. No wonder my temps were so high.Anyway, enough of my rambling. This GPU cooler from Gelid works wonders. It dropped my idle and load temperatures significantly. I haven't run a burn-in test to find a "true" max load temp because I'm still changing some stuff in my case, but here are some temperature comparisons from FurMark's 1080 benchmark preset:PowerColor Stock (ambient 24-26C)Min.: 47-51CMax.: 98-101CGelid Icy Vision Rev. 2 (ambient 23-25C)Min.: 34-38CMax.: 75-77CGreat improvement right there. I plan to run more tests once I'm done with all my alterations for my case.One final thought I had about the product concerns the fans: According to product specifications, one fan has a ball bearing while the other uses a sleeve bearing. Why a sleeve bearing? We all know this thing is going to be mounted horizontally.

Incredibly versatile install, comes with all hardware and good directions immediately after you figure out how to read them.The Cooler's fans move a lot of air with out much noise. Unable to use on two cards in an SLI configuration, the cooler requires up 1.5 slots beyond the occupied Video card slot.

It's supposed to be a decent cooler. Looks nicely manufactured. Came with no thermal pads whatsoever, the directions are horribly lacking. Couldn't set up it because both screws, and thermal pads had been missing... I want my cash back.

I was kind of weary to try this after reading some reviews on the original Icy Vision, but it was a good price and got it anyway. Dropped my idle temps from mid 50*c to low-mid 40*c and temps during BF3 from low-mid 80*c to mid 60*c. Very happy with the performance!

paired some swiftech copper heatsinks for the vrm cooling with this on a xfx 6970 rev.2 and it's perfect. idle temp has dropped from 48c to 33, OCx935mhz core 1.23v stock mem, load temps were 75-80c with the stock cooler hoovering away at 100db now load temps sit no higher than 52c. you can just barely hear these fans. just have to make sure you really clean off your memory and vrms for the thermal tape to work properly.

Impressive cooling power: keeps my GTX 470 ㅌC cooler than stock fan/heatsink operating F@H virtually all the time with negligible fan noise to boot (can hardly be heard over case fans even at complete load, in stark contrast to the rather small stock Nvidia fan) Takes up three PCI/PCIe slots (though you currently know this when you obtain the thing)Installation can be a pain, especially with regard to those small thermal adhesive pads utilized to hold down the RAM/VRM heatsinks. Removing the paper pads on either side of the double-sided adhesive can try one particular's patience! Utilised with GELID GC-Extreme thermal grease, which also lowered CPU temps a few degrees Celsius at idle (and over 12 at load) with exact same cooler compared to Arctic Silver 5. Obtaining the stock NVidia heat sink assembly off became a hassle, mainly due to the fact I stripped one particular of those tiny screws holding the heat shield on. Thankfully I got the screw out just before I broke a thing!

Heat sink and fans perform really well. Dropped my temperatures a great 10-15 C on my power color HD6870 (the old a single that looks just like the reference card). Not only did it drop my temperatures it is very quiet. Ahead of it sounded like a hair blower, now I hear... Nothing. Ok... I am actually perturbed about this. The fans are not PWM and consequently cannot be regulated by the graphics card. They can plug into your graphics card 4 pin slot but only three wires run from it and they run at 100% all the time. This really butters my biscuits. It does come with a three pin and four pin molex adapter so you can plug it into a single of your mother board headers and regulate it that way. I've got them spinning at 50% virtually all the time mainly because SpeedFan can't read my GPU temperature and adjust it automatically. But still, at 50%, my card stays under 60 C and mostly lower 50's and upper 40's which is sooooo substantially superior than the stock cooler.... and completely quiet. With FurMark the temperatures can get into the 60's but that's seriously extreme. And if I turn the fans up to 100%, mid 50's tops. How significantly is it to ask for a genuine PWM fan?

Looks quite very good with my EVGA 8800GTS 92 (blends in) don't appear like some freak of nature thing that doesn't belongDropped from 78 degrees stock to 56 degrees on loadIdles at ~ 38-40 , never noticed it get hotter than 56 degrees though playing dragon age originsFan is not that noisy five heat pipes only. I would of like a lot more heat pipesDoesn't seem to 100% on the board, additional like 95%, the pcb bended slightly when I put the screws on. I've created certain its just tight sufficient and not too tight. Got this to keep my 8800 GTS 92 running, this guy (EVGA 8800GTS 92) got me four solid years of service.not certain if it functions just as good for my EVGA GTX 570, waiting for some thing that just appear as excellent as this but superior for my EVGA GTX 570. The only factor thats 100% is the Thermalright Shaman, but its but ugly.
