I bought this for it's looks more so than it's performance, but it does it's job nicely. Keeps my AMD R7-1700 at only 73C while running prime95 stress test, can't complain about that. In a non pure stress test, kept it down to 64C.
The the fan mounts on it are convenient as well, they're pretty easy to take on and off, if you need to, which I did a few times during the system build.
It comes with a black "faceplate" for the top if you don't want the silver one.
Seems to work as advertised. Since I used it on a new system, I don't know if it performs better than stock thermal paste or slightly cheaper thermal paste, but the reviews said it was the best one out there (for a not extreme price) and it does it's job as my CPU stays within acceptable temps during prime95 stress test.
Worked for a week after I bought it, then one of the ram sticks RGBs failed, and it reported the wrong memory profile claiming it's XMP was 4024mhz. So I had to RMA it. Hope I get a working kit in back.
Edit: Got my RMA back, it died in less than 24 hours. Thought maybe my Mobo could be a problem, so I got a cheap crucial kit, and well it boots up fine. lowered to 1 star.
A very solid card. Self clocked itself to 2.02Ghz with the nvidia boost, with fans at 100% stays 55C while stress testing, with fans on auto, stays around 68C. The fans at 100% are a bit uncomfortably loud, but it doesn't seem like it will ever get that high on it's own unless it's the middle of summer and my AC is broken and I'm playing the Witcher 4 or something.
