I have it. Worth every penny IMO. My GTX Idles at ~40C and loads at ~50 (at stock speeds). This may be a little pricey, but way less than water cooling with comparable temps. I've said this before, good air cooling is much more cost effective than water cooling.

I have a picture in my gallery where I'm idling at 38C.

Does it come with heatsinks for the RAM modules?

Put it this way, I have the HR-03 Rev. A because I'm still on 7-series so it has 2 less heat pipes than the Plus. Well, in the middle of the summer I get 41C idle, 47C load with ambient temps pushing 30C in my bedroom. Compared to stock cooling (60C idle/90C load) and water (36C idle/41C load) it's IMO the best GPU heatsink money can buy. Get it.

edit: Yes it comes with Ramsinks.

Sure does. And for me, they stuck well. None have come off yet and I've had it for about a month or so. They come with specifically shaped ones for each type of chip, especially made for the 8800GTX. If you have a GTS, the HSI heatsink has to me modded in order to fit - but it can be done.

The installation is a little tricky but not too bad.

Remember though... this is specifically made for the GTX, but the only difference from this and the GTS is the HSI heatsink. I made a post before with a link to someone who had modded it for a GTS - I'll look for it.

BUT, according the this installation page at Thermalright, there is a new HSI heatsink that comes with HR-03 Plus that accommodates both the GTX and GTS. If you already ordered it, hopefully you will get this newer one.

If I were you though, I'd cancel your order from Newegg and call Thermalright directly, tell them you have an 8800GTS, and you'd like the HR-03 Plus with the NEW HSI heatsink. Chances are they'll be willing to make sure you get the right one.
