With the speed at which computer components now run, there is a tremendous amount of heat generated inside a PC. While case fans help cool the system, they generally only provide horizontal airflow. With that in mind, Vantec introduces the Spectrum Fan Card. Utilizing any available PCI slot, the Spectrum Fan Card serves a dual purpose of directly cooling any PCI/AGP cards surrounding it as well as providing better air circulation with two adjustable fans. Made from UV sensitive material and featuring built-in UV LED lights, the Vantec Spectrum Fan Card lights up your case while cooling it down.

That said, this will drop temps by maybe just 2-3 degrees Celsius under heavy load, but what it is great at is making it take longer for the GPU to reach its high temps, and allow it to cool down quicker after heavy load.
Pros - it's easy to install, sits right below the GPU, requires no custom modification of your graphics card and allows you to add more fans than you case allows.
Cons - its loud at max of course, but I was expecting it to be quieter when it was all the way low. I wish it could be turned all the way off for when I'm not gaming. Also the lights are a bit overpowering. I wish it was subtle or just didn't have any color.
Also keep in mind this is not powered by your PCI slot, it connects to your PSU with a typical fan power connector.
I can't put up with the noise so I am replacing this. Even on its lowest setting, I can easily hear it over everything else in my living room. The computer is sitting in a cabinet enclosed on three sides and I can still easily hear it. It is by far the loudest component in the computer.
The color is exactly how it's depicted in other customer photos. (I was going to post my own, but they all look the same as what is already on here.
For the price, it is hard to beat. I noted a 12-14 degree drop in temperature while playing higher end games with this thing on it's lowest setting. I have yet to have to turn it up.
I was playing Ghost Recon Wildlands on 4k and saw 82C on my graphics card. With this little guy on low the graphics card had a hard time getting above 68C. I know I could have just changed my fan-curve on the graphics card itself, but I would rather burn out this cheap little guy instead.
BE READY FOR THE SOUND!
Top Card without fan:
Idle: 51°C - 53°C
Load: 60°C - 70°C
Top Card with fan at 100%:
Idle: 50°C - 52°C
Load: 60 °C - 69 °C
Bottom Card without fan
Idle: 42°C - 43°C
Load: 58°C - 65°C
Bottom Card with fan at 100%:
Idle: 41°C - 43°C
Load: 58°C - 65°C
The load varies more than idle temps because it's averaged between different games.
I tested a few games, including DayZ, Arma 3, Assetto Corsa, Far Cry 3, Crysis 3, Witcher 2, and Battlefield 3 and 4, but I am admittedly new to using Crossfire. I've found that Battlefield 3 and 4 both run fairly well with crossfire minus the typical crashes that BF4 has. Using Crysis 3 however, fan or not...I get great frame rates (60+) but even with vsync on, the temps will eventually rise above 80°C and the game will start to freeze up, sometimes the video card driver will fail and I have to reboot the computer. This could just be an issue with Crysis 3 and crossfire. Either way, I think that this card does still work as intended, but it has also been around since January 2004, so keep that in mind if you are buying it to lower temps on a new video card since newer cards have MUCH better fan technology (My Gigabyte cards use "Windforce" technology which is very effective overall). I am going to look into water cooling my top card next. I'll let you know how it goes. It is also very loud considering how ineffective it is, I would say if your video card was released in the last 4 years then this will not help you.
