replacement cooler not as quite as you think "looks quality is quality"

RCrockin, Amazon
15 February 2015
  • Summary: very nice CPU cooler a lot of people say its quite but really if you come from a stock AMD cooler well there lies the reason stock coolers are loud, though this cooler is a good cooler for those like me who got a new motherboard and say it has a am3+ socket instead of a am3 socket, its not loud...

Awesome cpu for the price, hassle to install.

Mecha Bee "Mecha Bee", Amazon

  • Summary: This heatsink has decreased my temps from stock significantly. I did have issues with install (as everyone else) so my thermal paste got messed up. I'm ordering some arctic silver right now to replace the stock but for now, here are my temp specs under maximum load. AMD FX 8320 100% load.

Good news! The Arctic Alpine 64 Pro Rev

Sunnarin, Amazon
19 November 2014
  • Summary: Good news! The Arctic Alpine 64 Pro Rev.2 did its job by replacing the AMD jet-engine stock fan. It keep my Phenom II x4 cool and whisperingly quiet. Bad news is that I got a broken fan cage when I opened the box. Since the price is dirt cheap and the Alpine 64 pro rev 2 works, i opt to keep it.

Nice upgrade from stock

GuyFromHamptRoads, Amazon
12 September 2014
  • Summary: Decent upgrade from stock. I only give it 4/5 because i had a heck of a time getting it on, seemed to be slightly less slack in the clips than required to clip it onto the CPU - meaning I had to really manhandle this to get it clipped into place.

Annoying installation, but works great

T. Jones "random guy", Amazon
6 July 2014
  • Summary: I've installed many coolers in the nearly 20yrs that I've been putting together systems. I REALLY don't like how this cooler clips onto the cpu socket. Normally, the clip secures the heatsink and the fan is attached to the heatsink.

Quieter, affordable solution to a stock cooler.

Andrew, Amazon
30 June 2014
  • Summary: I highly recommend this cooler to anyone who is looking to quiet their system or replace their stock cooler. It's a bit difficult to install, but not extremely. Make sure to loosen the two screws on the cooler itself before you try to attach the cooler onto the socket.

Decent cooler

David B., Newegg
18 June 2014
  • Pros: White fans look nice. Quieter and better performance than stock cooler. I am just using it on the AMD Sempron 145 in a Media PC and works great for that.
  • Cons: Not many I can think of. For the price it is working great. Doesn't have the easiest clips to work with but nothing a flathead screwdriver can't solve.

The fan is good, but the design is terrible

Robin.H, Amazon
26 May 2014
  • Summary: The fan is transferring massive heat away from the heatset. It is good with my A10-5800K(100W TDP). The design is not satisfied. 1. The plastic grips above the fan are really vulnerable, I broke one piece at the first installation. 2.

Very Quiet, Okay Cooling

Nathan French, Amazon
25 May 2014
  • Summary: I've been using this fan for a while now, I had gotten it to replace the stock fan, and all around it is really nice. Much quieter than the original one, the only thing is that the CPU runs a little bit hotter, but still in the safe zone.
