Not Multi-Directional

Catfishsushi, Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: This Fan does not have multi-directional mounts for the AMD socket AM2+, In my Rosewill Challenger case, it points up or down, I needed it to face left or right. Proper airflow is essential for any Desktop, and this did not meet expectations. My Older Arctic Cooler fan now has the fan from this unit. It mounts in all 4 directions, and works quite well. Remove the Paste that comes with it and buy Tuniq x4 Thermal paste and instantly watch 10 degrees F come right off!

Unimpressive

Great Shark, Amazon
18 June 2012
  • Summary: I was able to replace my stock cooler for my i7-2600 with this one pretty easily. I did my homework by watching youtube installation videos ahead of time. It helps a lot. I got this cooler because it fits my slim mid case. Performance wise, it is no difference than the stock cooler. I don't OC. 40C idle @900 rpm and 55C gaming with my ATI 6850 video card. I don't know other reviewers are able to cool their CPUs in high 20S or lower 30S at idle.

Caveat Emptor

Anthony M., Newegg
28 May 2012
  • Summary: In this instance it seems that Amd users were an afterthought for Arctic Cooling.
  • Pros: Does it's job 35-40c idle on Amd 965.
  • Cons: On AMD motherboards there is a good chance that this beast will cover a ram slot, be prepared to take a grinder to the plastic fan shroud if you plan to populate all slots.

Good Cooler so far

Christopher C., Newegg
22 April 2011
  • Pros: Easy Installation - Works as described
  • Cons: Directions are HORRIBLE - no words just some VERY small pictures to figure it out. Also - a number of the fins were bent when I took it out of the box. Not enough to make me NOT install it though.

Encore trop bruyant

Sambal, Amazon
30 May 2011
  • Summary: Il y a un gain par rapport au refroidissement d'origine INTEL, tant en réduction du bruit qu'en refroidissement. Cependant, cela reste insuffisant si vous avez investi un minimum dans les autres ventilateurs de votre configuration. Par contre, si vous voulez un bon rapport qualité/prix et que vous avez déjà des bruits de ventilation cela peut devenir un choix intéressant.

  • Summary: trop gros..! trop lourd..!!!! on croirait une mauvaise pub de vache qui rit mais suis sérieux..! je doit dire que je n'ai pas osé le monter sur ma carte mère tellement j'avais peur qu'elle tombe avec son poids..! j'ai finalement utilisé le ventilo par défaut vendu avec le proc. d'ailleurs, c'était pas adaptable sur ma carte mère ASUS sabertooth R2.0..!

Attention points de fixation non-réglables

benoitvdh, Amazon
30 May 2011
  • Summary: Très bon ventirad mais faites attention de bien vérifier vos points de fixation avant de commander. Il y à un support carré. Donc, si vos trous sur la carte mère sont de forme rectangulaire, passez votre chemin.

Bof!

Eve01, Amazon
20 May 2011
  • Summary: Je pense que ce produit convient beaucoup mieux à une plateforme Intel. En effet le ventirad ne couvre pas entièrement l' AMD FX 6350 que je ventile. J'ai du mal à comprendre également pourquoi,Artic fabrique un composant qui condamne un slot mémoire! ( Asus M5A97 EVO R2). Un peu déçu par ce produit,je pense revenir aux valeurs sures comme par exemple unThermalright Macho 120 rev.A ou un Scythe Mugen 4,mais bon je voulais essayer.
