Wow, full load (furmark) temps dropped from 89 degrees celcius to 52 degrees with 100% fan (somewhat louder than stock). With fan controller turned down to ~50% (approx same dba as case) load temp at 56 degrees. Idling at 34 degrees in a warm room. Relatively easy install.
Don't get this if you're uncomfortable with disassembling a $500 video card. Putting it all together takes a bit of effort but in the end you're rewarded with a powerful card that stays cool and quiet. My GTX 580 idle temps are 35-40 degrees Celsius, 60-65 under load with MSI Kombustor benchmarking and Batman Arkham City. The fan is powerful enough to keep things cool even with big overclocks. Right now my GTX 580 is at 900/1800/2150 with the voltage maxed out 1.138V. The cooler is as quiet as the Twin Frozr II on my MSI GTX 470. I have a Cooler Master HAF 932 case.
I can't say a single thing bad about this product, put it on an EVGA 580gtx 3GB, and am able to raise the voltages now no problem for some solid OCing. It looks very cool beside my blue Zantec CPU cooler.
