How quiet is quiet? That is the question that prospective buyers of VGA coolers always want to know. I bought the VF770 to replace the very loud stock fan of a Sapphire Radeon 4850 which I bought as a Crossfire addition to an existing 4850 that is cooled with a near-silent Arctic Cooling Accelero.

I had little room in my case: the VF770 is compact and occupies just two expansion slots. Installation was a breeze (but be aware that the mounting screws stick out about 7mm from the back of the card). I connected the fan to the header on the 4850 so it could be controlled by the AMD Catalyst driver, instead of the crude voltage swap arrangement offered (5V or 12V). (This needed a little bit of wire cutting and connecting to the original fan's connector.) In my setup, Catalyst allows the card a fan speed range between 32% - 100% (equivalent to a voltage range of approx. 4V - 12V). The fan is audible at the lowest speed above my four case fans, but is not nearly as loud as the stock fan which I could only tolerate for two hours before whipping the card out of my computer. At higher speeds it is clearly audible, which generally is not a problem in gaming because of the much louder sounds produced by the games. Will I keep using it? Probably. It's close to my threshold of acceptability.

There are no heat pipes in the VF770, yet the cooling is adequate - around 40C at idle and approaching 80C at peak use, much better than the stock fans.
I gave the product 3 stars because it does the job of cooling, but unfortunately falls short on noise.

Recommendation: If you can clearly hear the case fans when your computer is running and need to quieten your loud stock card, then the VF770 will do the job and will not add to the noise.

It seemed a little daunting at first, reading the instructions, putting little heatsinks on the video RAM chips, little PET rings over the holes, applying thermal paste and then tiny screws with springs, then lining the fan to the holes without making a mess with the paste.

It ran like a charm. My fan on an old nVidia Quadro FX 1400 died, and this replacement worked so much better. It was making a noise at first, but I realized it was the power cord being struck by the fan blades. It's annoying that the cord immediately bent upwards into the fan's path, but some minor twists fixed it. Extremely quiet on low setting, and just as quiet on performance (normal). Barely even warm, and the diffusion blades make it look so good, I was tempted to leave the CPU open so people could see it.

It's the same fan fittings as a Geforce 6600 (non-GPA or whatever that specific one is), but the instructions listed the hole fittings as number one, when it clearly fits number 2 holes. No big deal, just double-check where the holes fit and that saves a lot of headache.

The packaging came with 10 PET rings instead of four, so I simply doubled up and discarded the two extras. The thermal paste (tiny!) tube gave me a lot of grief - the cap seal wouldn't break, and instead pushed back inside of itself after I tried to force it. Even so, it gave more than enough thermal paste for the job, and only one napkin cleaned everything up.

The size, weight, and space (not to mention the look and feel) this behemoth fan uses commands a higher price than other cheaper fans, but it didn't disappoint one bit. As an avid gamer, I'm proud of myself in taking an extra $20 to spend than buying a cheap fan that wouldn't do as good a job.

Awesome cooler! My ASUS EN9500GT/DI/1GD/V2 GeForce 9500 GT 1 GB had an ailing, noisy fan. I replaced it with this, set it on the lower speed, and it is now SILENT! And it runs idle at a cool 51 degrees Celsius. Easy install, with clear/easy directions. If you don't seem to have the right software/drivers to monitor your temp, just Google search for MSI Afterburner and download it...it's free!

I bought this just to make my PC quiet, and not disappointed. I've been using for almost a year and absolutely no issue.
