    Silent but Deadly!

    This thing was fairly easy to install even with poor instructions. Temps have changed drasticly. 55 degrees max when playing games at max settingsat 1440p. VRM temps are very reasonable as i have see VRM 1 only reach around 80 degrees once ... Read more

    1 out of 5 eggs Misleading Information

    Pros: Probably reduces the temperatures by a lot.

    Cons: - Major incompatibility with the Gigabyte 970 G1 Gaming (was confirmed it would be compatible by AC)
    - Misleading information provided by Arctic Cooling representative
    - Poor instructions

    Since the GPU is shifted more to the right, and the memory chips/VRMs are on the left side of the PCB, the product is unable to provide adequate cooling. Heatsink does not cover the back of the memory chips entirely, and REVERSING the heatsink covers it, but blocks part of the PCI-E gold plate (will not click in). Clips that were provided do not align properly. The representative mentioned it would be compatible, but he didn't even check the 3-pin on the videocard itself. The cooler uses a 4-pin, which comes with an adapter to molex, rendering it incapable of controlling fan speeds (unless you have a fan controller).

    The major flaw is the difference in temperatures between GPU temp and memory/VRM temps. If the GPU is cooled sufficiently well, the fans will remain idle, while the memory/VRM will be cooled improperly. Basically, they did a good job the GPU, but they MUST having a decent/good cooling solution for the memory/VRMs as well.

    Bottom Line: Their cooling products are great, make no mistake (had Xtreme III), but the misleading information that made me go through this hellish ordeal is painful. Now I have to reinstall my original cooler and make sure everything's fine. I'll save this cooler for something else, but I'm going to require new rubber pads.

    Honestly, it came down from that information provided AC that it'd be compatible is why I purchased it in the first place.

    I had to confirm with AC of compatibility since my Gigabyte 970 G1 Gaming had a different PCB layout vs other 970s.

    4 out of 5 eggs Cools GPU and vRAM well. VRM, not so much.

    Pros: - Provides excellent contact between heatsink and GPU die.
    - Lowered my core temperature from 85C on full load to 60C on full load (when compared to the stock cooler on a reference model nVIdia GTX TITAN X)
    - Heatsink is copper and very flat. Very few scratches and indentations.
    - Heatsink comes with Arctic MX-4 already applied on the heatsink. This is a good thermal compound, but there are better ones (such as the Liquid Ultra I substituted it with).
    - Fans are very quiet, even at 100%.
    - Backplate passive heatsink seems to do a very good job of cooling vRAM.

    Cons: - Hassle to install. Included directions are not very helpful. I had to refer to YouTube videos to get clarification on a couple of the steps.
    - Not enough thermal pads to cover all the hot components. After covering the 12 vRAM chips, I had very little to spare for the GPU phases and VRM.
    - Since everything is cooled on the back side of the card via the passive backplate heatsink, front-side components such as the VRM are left out in the open. Today I purchased a few sets of the Enzotech MOS-C10 C1100 copper heatsinks to place on the VRM and GPU phases. I hope it helps to cool them, because this cooler certainly doesn't. With this cooler, the VRM on my TITAN X peaks at 105C. Completely unacceptable.
    - Clamps (for clamping PCB to the backside heatsink) can be tricky to install on a TITAN X.

    Bottom Line: - Reference model nVidia GTX TITAN X
    - Use Coolaboratory Liquid Ultra on the GPU die. Provides much better temperatures when compared to the MX-4 that comes on the heatsink.
    - People have reported issues of installing this on motherboards with thermal armor (such as the Sabertooth Z77 that I have). I personally did not have much of an issue getting the GPU to fully seat into the PCI-E slot after installing this cooler. But beware nonetheless.
    - Be sure to take your time with screwing everything into place. This solution puts a lot of pressure on the PCB so be sure not to overtighten. When installing I notice that the PCB bends in certain spots. Do your best not to damage it.

    3 out of 5 eggs single card systems

    Pros: cools fairly well as it should for it's size. Quality fans

    Cons: the system they engineered here is functional but over sized for the given video card(s).The back side cooler is a good idea IF it can be fitted into your case and the metal holding system is an iffy afterthought. Makes for more problems with the cross fire system, it blocks the cross fire connectors. I left mine off for my own design...I intend to mill down the original back side cooler fit as well, but the cooler kit came without any of the plastic(tacky) filament. An open box that is really a refurbished/sent back unit.. There are smaller units that work as well, if not better for the price. I purchased the open box version of this cooler, basically had to redesign the clamps and leave that back cooler off for now, it's far too large to fit with/in crossfire system, especially IF you run two of these on your cards.(really uneeded).

    Bottom Line: It's a lot of tinkering to assemble this contraption just to cool with air. Sellers are just wanting to liquidate old tech from their shelves. If the price comes down on these dramatically, then I'd advise their value as killer coolers, but with the water kits out(albeit over priced as well) these monster air coolers are just there for those who want that big fish impression on their friends. These only really cool with the fans above auto levels from the video card.

    As a final note, don't get into the "open box" versions, as they're really poorly refurbs, not just open boxes. Too many parts missing with an "almost new" price. At that rate you'll need a price cooler to attach to the sale item....

    4 out of 5 eggs It works.

    Pros: I installed the Arctic Accelero Extreme IV on a Visiontek R9 290x with revised heatsink, and it works great.

    Essentially if you have a R9 290x with a "2nd gen heatsink" like on my card, there will already be heatsinks on VRM chips and Ram and a passive cooling backplate from the factory. This allows you to skip installing the backplate from Arctic, and the factory installed heatsinks will work in with the Arctic Accelero.

    Load temps in low 60's with fan set at 75%. I would strongly advise manually adjusting the fan speed to the highest percentage your ears will allow. 100% is a little noisy - 60% is quiet, and somewhere in between works great when your gaming with sound to cover the fan noise.

    Cons: One of the gpu mount screws stripped, but still worked enough to mount cooler.

    Metal bracket surrounding the coolers "cold plate" the part that touches the gpu, flexes under very little screw tension.

    Essentially I think the cooler and screws are made from junk metal. All different grades of steel are available, and it seems Arctic has saved some pennies here. Really not a surprise, and doesn't present much of a problem, but the cooler might not fare well from multiple installations/ switching cards down the road.

    Bottom Line: If you have a reference cooled R9 290x, pick up some heatsinks for the VRM and Ram chips, for a little extra headroom. Cooler will probably work without them, but overclocking the Ram etc. could present problems.

    5 out of 5 eggs

    Pros: Installed on a stock R9 290x after getting tired of the wind tunnel cooler that it comes with.

    After playing Crysis 3 on High for 30 minutes, the core and vrm temps hovered around 65c, with the fans on max.

    Even on max the fan is barely audible if you're playing a game or listening to music.

    Cons: Took a couple hours to figure out how to install the cooler, while triple checking to make sure that everything was done right.

    Bottom Line: Use a fan control software.

    During my first run with this the vrms were hitting borderline uncomfortable temperatures (107c~) as a direct result of the fans not going above 25% because the stock card doesn't bring its own fan on until its core hits a rather high temperature (which this cooler was keeping well below that, even with the fans on lowest).

    Once I realized this and set up my own profile for the fans this worked absolutely flawlessly.

    3 out of 5 eggs Probably best VGA cooler around

    Pros: The temperatures are amazing.

    Cons: Biggest con is that they removed RAM and VRM heat sinks.. like what were they thinking?

    Remove that useless "back plate" and gives us back the heat sinks which actually made a difference in temperature.

    People are getting amazing temperatures on the GPU all over the net but the VRM's are hitting 105-110 degrees C for some people.. Come on Arctic.. Scrap the backplates and put the heatsinks back.

    I am who tested this and what were they thinking?

    Was this even tested at all?

    People should stick to the ARCTIC Accelero Xtreme III until they fix this. They are compatible with R9 290/X anyways.

    5 out of 5 eggs COOL stuff!

    Pros: - Works extremely well cooling down 290X
    - Almost silent, barely any sound at all
    - Great customer service, very responsive

    Cons: - Bulky, need metal to get rid of the heat perhaps

    Bottom Line: Read a lot comments from both sides before ordering. Haven’t seen better alternative, stock cooler can’t cut it. Saw lots of funny comments all over though.

    Followed instructions, mounted on 290X. Agreed with some, not easy one to mount, took time. But 290X demanded attention. Left room for airflow, set fans @ 100% and benchmarking 72 hours straight. Temps fell off the cliff compare to stock. Cooler didn’t budge.

    Gaming heavily for last 3 weeks, two opponents on 290X but with stock dropped off in smoke, kicked some serious rearends. 290X worked great, temps under control. Again, Xtreme IV didn’t budge. Don’t mind fans @ 100%, better be careful than sorry, very quiet anyway.

    Needed extra stuff during installation, lost them, my bad. Emailed Arctic and got what I asked for in days by mail. Cool service. Much better than what I can say about some others.

    Rid stock cooling before taking 290X into battle. Good to go here with Xtreme IV
