Summary: If you do not want to remove the motherboard to install the mounting bracket that comes with most quality coolers then this is the cooler for you. Construction is very good and the fan is quiet. Just make sure it will fit in your case. CPU grease is pre-applied so be careful.
Summary: I wish it could have been rotated, I just don't see any possible way to do it.
Pros: Put it on an AMD8350, dropped temps nearly in half. Runs at 32C when pc is idling. Ran Heaven Benchmark v4 and the highest it got was 52C, big improvement over the stock cooler.
Cons: Large, I actually had to take out a stick of memory on an ASUS M5A97 motherboard, wasn't a major issue as I was running 4 - 8gb sticks, but now I only can run 24 gig's total so I'm a little ticked about that. I'm considering sending it back & trying a water-cooled unit, we'll see. Also, the fan o...
Not Good for Moderate OC... But cools down CPU fast

Summary: PROS: It is decent it cools very well... dropped my temps fairly fast... running prime 95 max temps on a 8320 got to 70 Degrees C. and stays in the low 20s even after boot cpu temp was at 11C CONS: Sadly I would not recommend this cooler for Overclocking purposes...
Summary: The Arctic Freezer 13 CO cured the overheating problem. No annoying sounds from the CPU area. I am very pleased; however the instructions are not well defined. It’s a bear trying to get this beast to fit. The memory chips are either too high, or the Arctic Freezer is too low to clear the memory.
Performs very well; glad I didn't opt for liquid cooling

Summary: Great; does the job wonderfully on my overclocked G3280 Pentium Anniversary Edition 3.2 ghz OC'd to 4.2 stable at 1.28v 65C at full load on an ASRock H81 Board. Might seem obvious but make sure you know how to install one properly if you've never done it before.
Summary: Wow this is an amazing piece of machinery. I customized a traditional sized desktop to put it under the cabinet of my TV entertainment system. the old AMD 965 CPU fan was very loud. After installing the fan, I ran several games with the graphics card purring and CPU running hard. It's quiet.
Summary: My liquid system died out and needed a cheap quick replacement. Pros: Keeps system cool under heavy pressure. Only saw a 10 degree jump when I was gaming. Cons: Harder install if you already have your computer built. Still possible though.
Arctic Freezer 13, great cooling solution without breaking the bank.

Summary: Bought this for my FX8350, was using stock cooler that sounded like a weed whacker when under heavy load (gaming) but after installing Arctic freezer 13, was left with a faint humming of the fans in the case (not the Arctic freezer but the stock fans in the case).
Summary: I bought this knowing full well it was overkill for my processor, but I intend to upgrade down the road and wanted something beefy to help prolong the life of my VRMs and other hot components around the CPU socket. Long story short, I ran about 37C at idle with the stock Intel cooler.
Summary: Beautiful. was debating going with a liquid cooling system but felt it was overkill for my apu. Hooked this up with ease. Keeps my 3.4ghz apu at 30c with light we browsing and a mere 47c when overclocked to 4.0ghz at full load. Love it. Will, and have, recommend it
