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

Summary: my husband uses these all the time and they work great. this one had a minor defect in the power plug, but the hubby fixed it. this is my first computer build with my man. so far its looking good.
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.
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.
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.
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.
