Fitting this product resulted in a broken GPU. Thats my experiance. Nice product, but Im not sure what went wrong.
For those not feeling quite up to mounting this but still want a silent GPU - The Sapphire Atlantis Radeon 9800 and 9600 is a decent one without a fan, just a heatsink - THAT heatsink, in fact.

You know what, this is a great product. If you don't read the instructions, I garantee that you will F* up like the previous post. I purchased this Zalman unit around April for my MSI TI 4800 128 VIVO because the darn video card was overheating. It helped dissapate the heat, but only because I had a house fan backed by my A/C unit blowing directly at the GPU. I ended up selling the card, wich worked on someone elses system perfectly. Anyway, the Zalman Heatsink is a great product, and turns the video card into a monster... I will probrably buy one again in the future if needed.

The only thing is that the unit did not cover some of the memory chips. You may want to double check this before plunking down about 20bucks, or buy extra memory heatsinks.
