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.
Summary: I purchased this cooler to replace the stock cooler for an intel i7-4790k Computer info: Motherboard: Asus Z97-A (LGA 1150) CPU: Intel i7-4790k Computer Case: Antec 300 illusion Memory: DDR3 1600 standard memory 2 x 4 GB Video Card: EVGA GTX 660 Super Clock Version Pros: Quieter then Intel stock fan...
Good for a 92mm cooling unit - not as efficient or quiet as a 120mm model though.

Summary: This is my first use an Arctic Freezer 13 CO heatsink/fan combo. I've used other similar type units (like the Hyper 212 for example). For this build I wanted something a little smaller and went with the 92mm fan of the Freezer 13 rather than a larger 120mm model.
Summary: I got this to replace another model from the same brand. I love these coolers as they do really well for what they are, it was the only cooler I could find that would fit in my HTPC case, thanks to the technical drawings on the manufacture's website.
Summary: The Arctic Freezer 13 is a great deal and while not at the top of the charts performance wise, it does a great job at keeping the heat under control: In my HTPC case on an i7-2600k at stock speed: Stock Intel fan: Idle 44c, 100% load for 15 minutes 82c Arctic Freezer 13: Idle 34c, 100% load for 15...
Summary: This is a great CPU fan/heatsink combo. Buyers should know that installing it on a mobo that is already in the case is quite a trick. I mounted this on my AMD Phenom II x6 1090T processor. Was an upgrade, so the mobo was already in the case.

Summary: This is a good cooler but not as useful for everyone as it is for Intel CPU users. The unit comes packaged with two brackets, one for Intel and Lugs that fit on standard AM2/3 mounting plates.
Summary: There are so many options for aftermarket CPU coolers, it can make your head hurt looking for them. I was previously running a water cooled setup, and decided I absolutely hate maintenance and high costs with a water cooled system. That being said, I researched and found Artic Cooling heatsink fans.
