Provides worse cooling than that stock Intel fan.

Summary: Read 1 star reviews first. This cooler keep the CPU at lower temperature when idling, however very unexpectedly doesn't have the same effect on some load. The temperature with this cooler goes substantially higher comparing with the stock Intel cooler.
Summary: I liked the design and quality of this cooler, however I should have read the one star reviews prior to purchase. If you are using an AMD chip, you should not go with this cooler. As stated by others, this cannot be installed with horizontal flow thru, only vertical.
Summary: Does not work with HPs. Beware. I have an AMD FM2 and the only way it would mount on the motherboard is with the Intel adapter!! But then the screws wouldn't fit. Crazy. Might be a Swiss company, but it's still cheaply made junk.
Summary: So this fan can only be installed if you have a top exhaust in your case!!! if you are planning on having it exhaust out the back "SURPRISE" it can't install that way. It wouldn't be so bad if their own included literature didn't show it blowing out the back like ALL other CPU fans!@! CPU fan FAIL.
FAN IS IN WRONG PL HS IS WAY TO BIG COULD COULD OLNY 2X8

Pros: DO NOT BUY ARCTIC FREEZERER THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE HEATSINKS TAKE DIMM3 AND DIMM1 SO THEY CAN NOT BE USE STAY WITH THE INTEL TEMP STAY AT 89F TO 90F THE ARCTIC WOULD GO FROM 108F,98F 111F AND JUMP TO 124F
Summary: Bought this cooler to go with my new amd fx-8350. I'm getting temps of about 40c on idle and have maxed it out under stress at 61c...this is all with stock settings. The problem is this cooler only mounts with the fan blowing up or down with am3+ amd sockets...
Summary: From now on if a cooler will not clear my ram I will not buy it. If by some fool mistake I do buy such a cooler, like I did with this one, I will return it and give it the lowest score possible. There is NO excuse for this kinda cruddy design at this point.
Pros: It's a 90mm cooler so it should not be as cumbersome as much larger ones.
Cons: If you have an AMD socket the stupid thing will only blow air upward or downward depending on how you mount it. After all, we AMD users are second rate consumers so why would we be discriminating enough to notice such a shortcoming? *sarcasm* This has to be one of the dumbest designs I've seen on...
Summary: Never had a problem with AC products before. But this level of attention to detail makes me scratch my head. It's too heavy to RMA. I don't care to deal with the postage. Maybe I will remove the over-applied thermal past and use it as a paper weight. 5 eggs for Newegg. A Goose egg for AC.
Pros: It's heavy? As if that matters. Has some shiny parts.
Cons: It is quite heavy, but I can't use it. When I opened the package I discovered that only one AMD clip was in the parts bag. Hey AC employees. It needs two clips, not one. Thanks a lot.
