Great solution, Great cooler.
C.C.
Please check your PCB size before buying this product as some non-referenced video cards are too wide for the heatsink.

The medium temps will definitely extends card life, especially for the heavy users like me.

This is a very nice closed loop system for your graphics card. I bought this from the other guy much cheaper, 99% of the time I buy from amazon. I put this on my GTX 560 and noticed a huge difference, at least 22c less when playing games, yes overclocked. Few things to take note. First make sure your case has the room and you take your time with the heat sinks and such. Pay attention to the 4 options they give you for airflow. I used option C for the best GPU cooling. Takes about 20 minutes.
Here is some of the information that is included that is not mentioned above.

It has a nice copper cold plate.
Can hardly hear the fans but did switch to the SP 120mm cooler master for the rad.
Maintenance-free closed-loop system.
All fans PWM-controlled.
Has a 2 year warranty.

Compatibility:

AMD Radeon: HD 7870, 7850, 6970, 6950, 6870, 6850, 6790, 6770, 5870, 5850,
5830, 4890, 4870, 4850

NVIDIA GeForce: GTX 680, 670, 580, 570, 560Ti, 560 SE, 560, 550Ti, 480, 470,
465, 460 SE, 460, GTS 450

This is a great product, I'm sure the price will come down as it just came out July 27th. I paid $169 and have no regrets. Would do it again in a second. I highly recommend this if your a hard core gamer or have a hot running graphics card.

I had a issue with my EVGA 550TI getting really hot. (80C ) I have 2 in SLI configuration with each card hitting 80C the inside of my PC case was becoming a oven. I bought 2 of these units put them on an now each card gets up around 35 C. I posted a picture of the radiators an coolers mounted in my case on here. Cooler was not to hard to install. I will agree with others when they say for the price it seems "cheap" for the price that is paid for it.

Make sure you have a clean work area, and lay everything out, have a laptop or tablet/smartphone handy for YouTube videos as well. Check and recheck to make sure you get everything right the first time. Those was the most unforgiving setup I have gone through recently. Don't have it installed on my card yet, will update review once I get this thing burned in.

If you want a great closed loop solution that will fit almost any video card from the last 5 years, this is it. However if you're looking for something plug and play, you're SOL.

****UPDATE****

This thing stays quiet and keeps my gpu at ambient temps idle, 26-29C, when really pushing my gtx680 it gets to around 60C, and that is after hours of hard gaming. Worth the time it took to install, I like quiet computers and this cooler is waaay quieter than the hair dryer that came with my 680. A must buy if you have the tech know how and the patience.

Although it does take a while to add this to your video card, once it is together it seems to work nicely. I just put it in yesterday, and my video card temp dropped about 10-30c. My card was overheating on the warm days here, so I have to wait and see if it happens again.

And it's much quieter than the super loud air only solution.

I have 3 R9 290s and they were so loud, you couldn't have a conversation in the same room.

I installed 1 water cooler and it made a big difference.

I'm going to try one more, but I can't do all 3.

This solution makes the cards wider in the back of the card where there is a metal cooling plate with fins attached to the back of the card. So if your cards are side by side in the case, you can probably only install 1 water cooler.

Also, the thermal pads stick to everything EXCEPT the board:) I probably re-applied them 5 times because they fell off, or stuck to something else, etc.

But my card is running 12 degrees Celsius cooler and is so much quieter

Update 2 weeks later.

I have to withdraw my support for these devices. They do not cool as well as the air cooling system gigabyte installs stock. They are fine under light and medium load, but not continuous maximum load, alt-coin mining for instance.

After taking apart and reassembling numerous times, they just can cool enough as the air cooler and I lose about 30% of performance even with both sides of the cases off.

So I will be returning these as they don't work as advertised.

I must have spent 30+ hours messing with these things only to find out they won't work under max load.

I apologize to those of you who bought this product based on my review, I was wrong.

Too bad, as they are very quiet.

I applied my Accelero Hybrid to an MSI GTX 560Ti Twin Frozr.

The loudest device in my system is now my hard drive with it's seek noise. The radiator fan is tied in to the analog fan control for the other two case fans. (Previously three, but the radiator/fan assembly took the place of my rear case fan)

Under load, at the lowest fan setting, the card hits about the same temps (60-65) as it did with the stock fans, but without the fan spinup. With thee fan control set to high, it drops drastically to 40-45.

Yes, installation was complicated, but if you don't rush it, it's fine.

This cooler has certainly lowered temps on my VisonTek R9 290 Reference card. But it certainly wasnt easy to install.
The hardest part was installing the heatsink on the back, Maybe I misplaced the cooling pads but the heatsink didnt exactly fit the card, the claps used to hold it down bulged and I had to leave one off so I could fit it into the PCI express slot.

The fan is very quite, even at 1300 RPM (fastest setting)

Temps before with reference cooler: 94C and major throttling.

Temps after water cooler install: 57C max with cooler fan set to 100%

Temps using water cooler with recommended fan curve: 68C @ 50% max fan speed.

Oh and I have my card OC'd to 1050 core and 1400 memory. This is valid for all of the above results. Im sure the temps would be lower if I left it at stock clocks.

My case is a midtower and already could hardly fit the R9 290 so I knew any aftermarket fan cooler wouldnt fit, Thus I went with this option. It certainly does what it is designed to do and allows guaranteed OC'ing headroom.

R9 290 VisonTek reference from eBay: $220
Water cooler : $120

Total cost : $340 for better than GTX 780 performance and guaranteed cool temps.
