*FIRST THING EVERYONE MUST REALIZE*:
Amazon has conveniently combined the Arctic high-end graphics card coolers all into one page here. The only downside is that you are seeing reviews for all four of them that are available right now.
*Overview*:
This review is for the latest one, the Accelero Xtreme IV. This is the one that requires no gluing, and even advertises that you can return your card back to stock if you ever choose to do so (I'm not sure why you would ever do this. It's probably worth more on ebay with this on it, but that's your choice to make). When buying it, I took comfort in knowing that had I messed something up or lost courage during the installation, then I could still choose to revert back to stock if I chose to do so. The installation was rather easy though if you go slow and take your time to realize things. This is coming from someone who has never put on a custom cooler before too.
I would like to mention that when installing this, the thermal pads go on the back of the card (which I found odd, but I followed along with the instructions despite that). They give you 40 of them each roughly .75cm I would say. You can stretch them if need be so there should be plenty of them. I have the R9 290 and found that 40 of them was the perfect amount. Since they had to make this compatible with multiple cards, I had to take special care in not clamping a capacitor or other major component. There was one modification I had to make where on one of the clamps I had to cut half of the rubber adhesive on it to confirm I would not be pinching a capacitor (go to Arctic's website and look at the parts list if you are interested in what these notorious clamps look like).

The good: does what it says it's going to do. The three fans provide an excellent level of cooling power. The fans are quiet and temps at idle and load decrease noticeably.

The bad: Not SLI compatible for a few reasons. The backside RAM cooler physically blocks an SLI bridge from being connected, and the dimensions of this product (even without the backside cooler) prevent you from installing it on both cards.

Fortunately with a little ingenuity, it's possible to install only the fans and leave the backside cooler off, though this looks a little tacky since you'll have screws coming off your card around the GPU that mount the cooler to the GPU. The benefit to doing this: leaving the backside cooler off allows you to connect an SLI bridge. However, the card you install these fans on will have to be the lower of the two (or more) since the fan cooler height is greater than the distance between PCIe slots.

The fully assembled cooler is not friendly to all motherboards. With the backside cooler installed, the card would no longer fit in the my first PCIe slot (collided with RAM and CPU cooler).

I'd recommend this cooler if you only use a single video card and have the space on your board. For those who need an SLI cooling solution, look elsewhere.

Installed it on my Sapphire Dirt 3 Edition HD6950 [...]
There were two MAJOR problems. First, the plastic stand offs are too long, even the shortest 3mm ones. Glad I did a test fit because the copper bottom of the heatsink had at least a 1.5mm gap, not touching the GPU core at all! So I had to trim the stand offs a little to get it to fit correctly. So if you plan on using Artic Silver, you definitely need to check if it's touching the core or not, otherwise you can resort to using a thick TIM pad, but then what's the point of using an aftermarket cooler with such an inefficient heat transfer?

Second, there is not enough space between the top of the heat sink fins to be able to fit the PCI-E power connectors. And if you use a "shorter" HD6950 board like mine, the plastic shroud of the Accelero completely blocks it as well, I hastily trimmed the plastic to get it to fit, and bent the heatsink fins with plier to allow the PCI-E power connectors to fit.

That said, my HD6950 went from idling at 55C to now idling at 46C. In Furmark burn-in it tops out at 62C vs. 84C with the stock cooling.

And the fans don't really spin any faster than idle. So it's really really quiet. I did crank the fans to 100% in Catalyst Control Center to see how loud it got. Certainly louder, but a much nicer lower octave sound, more like a 5.25" Optical drive spinning than the whiny hair drier-like sound of the fans in the stock one. And overall much quieter even at 100%.

So for cooling performance, I give it 5 Stars.
For installation and fit, I give it 1 Star.
I average it to 2 Stars since it was such a pain to install it.

I installed it on R9 290.

Installation was pretty easy, assuming you have the right tools.... Which I did not :),

I connected the cooler originally to the gpu fan control unit, which I later changed to 12V adapter that comes with the cooler. The difference in temps for main chip and VRM1 and VRM2 were huge. I recommend connecting to the 12V adapter or the motherboard.

Before installation, main gpu chip easily used to get to 95C. At that temp it felt like there was a Harrier hovering above my room due to the reference fan trying to cool it.

After installation+12V+side case fan my temps on full load were 65-84C (avg 76C) for main chip, VRM1 was 68-86C (avg 78C). And VRM2 temps were never a concern. (70C highest).

The temps fluctuate depending on the game I play and my room temperature. Some games heat up different chips more than others. Overall this cooler does an amazing job of cooling all parts.

I highly recommend getting a side case fan to cool the VRMs. Without it I saw temps of 106C! That was also due to fans spinning at 20%. That's why connect cooler to MOBO or 12V adapter so fans spin faster.

Backplate gets pretty hot, that tells me heat is definitely transferred from VRMs. Side fan cools it, so again, get one if you don't have one. (PS install dust covers too)

Sound of fans on 100% are pretty good. About 100x better than referance cooler.

I give this cooler 4 out of 5 stars only because of its size. Mainly backplate size. I can't plug my gpu into top pci slot on mobo (z77) because cpu heat sink gets in the way. Other than that it's a great cooler.
