Pros

Thermalright quality feel
Thermalright quality performance
Thermalright quality looks
Thermalright quality mass
Can be installed two ways depending on your mobo slot layout
Cons
Thermalright's insistence on not bundling a fan (I'm running it passive anyways so I'm grasping at straws)
long, arduous installation
Summary
Bought this to completely shush up an obnoxious 7600GT stock fan.

Installation was a bit of a pain, as the instructions for mounting the HR-03 a) don't adequately illustrate the wrap-around mount method, b) didn't note the fact you need to mount the flat-style ramsinks on the two chips straddling the heatsink (I had to pry off the spikey-style ones I had already mashed on beforehand), and c) tightening up the bolts takes Houdini-like dexterity (especially the ones sandwiched between the card and the heatsink), not to mention more than two arms.

The trouble is worth it though, as the temps while running passive match the dinky whiney stock HSF -- 42C closed case idle, 65C loaded under Furmark. I really see no need to strap a fan on.

This is a prime example of why I say Themalright is the Rolls Royce of heatsinks. Don't forget to reuse the box, it's too good to throw away or blue-box.

(note: my HR-03 box came with the 6-hole mounting kit, whereas my trusted NCIX sales guy told me afterwards some do, some don't, in case any of you were wondering if you needed to order the kit or not...)

Pros

Keeps my video card much cooler than stock heatsink/fan
Very quiet
Easy to install
Compatible with 8800 GT
Cons
No included fan
Mounting over the back of the video card is impossible on some motherboards
Summary
I originally bought this to cool my 8600 GT. Worked fine passively while playing older games. I just upgraded to an XFX 8800 GT. The 8800 GT stock heatsink fan does not keep the card very cool and it gets very noisy at higher fan speeds. I installed the HR-03 and my temps while playing Unreal Tournament 3 dropped from 80-85 celsius (stock clocks) to 44-50 celsius (Slight overclock). While idling the HR-03 keeps my core temp at 36 celsius. I have added a 120 mm low speed fan as well. 120 mm fans do not really fit on this heatsink, but I strapped it on. All in all, probably the best heatsink you can get right now for the 8800 GT.

Pros

-Appearance
-Compatibility for SLI & Crossfire setups. Can be mounted right side up or upside down.
-Cooling Performance with 92mm fan installed
Cons
-Heavy. Your VGA card will sag a little
-Large. It probably wont be a problem for you but take a good look inside your computer first. Think about your configuration.
-Passive cooling ability not adequate unless case is moving large amounts of air through it. (Defeating the purpose of passive cooling.)
-Expensive
-Fan not included (Considering the price, throw one in and let the customer decide)
-Ram heat sinks don't stick properly to my Sapphire HD2600 XT
-Heatpipe clearance issue with Sapphire HD2600 XT (Read Below)
Summary
As an active cooler its great. I'm running near silent with my Nexus 92mm fan and achieving temperatures easily 15 degrees cooler at idle than the noisy stock cooler. The installation was of medium difficulty. The heat pipes would not clear the fan connector on the board, so I had to unsolder it just to be sure the cooler was properly mated with the GPU core. Also the RAM heat sinks require thermal epoxy to get them to stick. The RAM is covered in a waxy coating (Perhaps developed by T-FAL) which the thermal tape wont stick to. This may not be the best all round cooler on the market, but its very quiet, very good looking and performs better than stock.

Quirky install aside, I recommend this product whole heartedly. Their CPU coolers get top marks as well. I also own a Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme cooler for my Q6600.

Comment: Great looks, top notch performance, and typical Thermalright quality all go into making the HR-03 a great video card cooler for either passive or quietly active duty, depending on your case air flow.
