Great cooler for a descent price

Richard R., Newegg
29 December 2014
  • Pros: It's relatively short and fits into my NZXT phantom 410 case with plenty of space left over. Installation was pretty straightforward for my AM3+ socket. One thing to note i can only face the fan to blow either upwards or downwards on my sabertooth 990fx. Some others have mentioned rotating the bracket but mine has only 2 parts the upper and lower and cannot be rotated. However orientation isn't really a huge concern for me. Cooling is much better than the stock heat s...
  • Cons: Can only be orientated to blow up or down with my socket configuration. Not an issue in my case but it can be in someone elses.

  • Summary: Very quiet. My only usage is that the cooling vanes covered the 4th memory slot, but I doubt I'll ever need that slot anyway.

Awesome!

Keith B., Newegg

  • Summary: I highly recommend this product especially if you are using a mid-tower case.
  • Pros: This CPU cooler works great and was super easy to install on an Intel motherboard. My temperature dropped approximately 7-10 degrees Celsius over the stock Intel cooler. Furthermore, the fan runs very quiet.
  • Cons: None

Fits AMD and Faces Any Direction

Andrew M., Newegg
16 June 2014
  • Summary: Some users installed the mounting bracket so this wide heatsink almost covers the nearest memory slot. Rotate the bracket a quarter turn (90 degrees) and the width of the heatsink is then nowhere near the memory slots. In this setting the fan blows heat towards the rear of the case.
  • Pros: Square mounting bracket can be oriented so that heatsink mounts facing rear or top of case.
  • Cons: Heatsink can also mount so the fan blows towards the graphics card or front of case - but why would anyone do that ?!?! Due to confusion among some users, Arctic should offer a video tutorial on their website for AMD installation and for Intel installation.

Quality Cooler

Anonymous, Newegg
19 May 2014
  • Summary: I own a mid atx tower and it's a tight squeeze, but it is manageable.
  • Pros: Quiet and out performs a stock cpu fan and heatsink by far. Mounting is fairly easy, and works best in full size cases.
  • Cons: None that I can think of.

Getting a second one

jedediah a., Newegg
11 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought my current setup from someone else, so the cooler was already installed, I will update this to reflect my installation process after I install my new one.
  • Pros: I have one of these cooling my Phenem 2 6 core processor, and the temps stay about 16c at Idle, never seen them go over 50c. I am waiting for my new components I just ordered from newegg for my new build. This will have the FX 8320 8 core. I was going to go water cooling, but I am so impressed with my other one, I decided to order another one for my new system.
  • Cons: None

Great cooler for the price

Fernando H., Newegg
25 April 2014
  • Summary: Cooled my FX 8350 stock at 52*C after 3 hours of Prime95. Fan is high quality, and can't be heard at all. AMD Installation: I suggest two people, one to hold the clip, and one to screw it on. 1. Screw the top part of the cooler (The one without the fan) to the little clip, without mounting it yet. 2. Mount the top part of the clip to the motherboard, being careful not to disturb the CPU. 3.
  • Pros: * Insane cooling * Quiet. You can't hear it, even at max. * Doesn't cover RAM slots
  • Cons: * Heavy and Big * Will interfere with top fans on most mid cases. * Hard to install on AMD boards. Recommend 2 people (one with small hands)
