Quiet little cooler that performs very well
14 August 2014
Summary: What you have here is a great little CPU cooler. Sure, you can be trendy and go with that other brand cooler that has like two million five-star reviews on Amazon, but that thing is the size of the Scooby-Doo lunchbox you carried back and forth to elementary school. The Arctic is just a little bigger than my stock cooler; it's squat and dome shaped, kinda like R2-D2's head only smaller.
Well worth a replacement if you dont want to noise of high air cool or water for a HTPC

Summary: Very quite and provides ample cooling. If you are using an HTPC that is a traditional case (I use an IKONIC) then this is a good option for stock fan replacement. So quite I wasnt even sure my computer had booted up. Average temps with stock fan on Phenom II x4 950 BE was 46c under normal use - after installation it dropped it down to 32c under normal use.
Summary: I usually use the stock coolers on all my builds but just recently I purchased 6 oem Quad Core 3.8 Ghz AMD CPUs. I found these coolers on Amazon and decided to give them a try. Excellent decision to do so. I am thrilled with the performance and near silent operation compared to the stock coolers that come with the retail version of the above mentioned CPUs. Would highly recommend to friends and colleagues. Great value and great cooling performance.
Summary: This fan is a great bang for your buck. The stock fan on my AMD cpu sounded like a jetliner. This thing is virtually inaudible. The temperatures are much lower as well. I do not overclock or anything, so I cant comment on how well it handles extreme use. But for regular computing/gaming its a workhorse. Before this fan, I had used their previous model on one of my older computers. That was also a great fan, and this one definitely feels improved. Highly recommended!
Summary: I was looking for a good after market cooler for my A8 6600k,I have to say i am very very impressed by this cooler and like others have said this thing is quiet and they arent kidding..very quiet. for a budget fan this is a excellent buy.
Summary: I reviews this about a month ago and I complained that my temps were rather high during my video editing renders. Well, since my last review, I've added two 120mm exhaust fans and one 90mm intake fan to my case and I've overclocked my FX-8320 to 4.2 and during my video renders this cpu reaches 70c and while browsing the web, watching youtube videos in HD this thing doesn't go higher than 30c. In complete idle it doesn't go above 19c.
Summary: First, this fan was very easy to install even if one is a novice at setting a fan/heat sink on a processor as the instructions are very clear and concise. Most importantly, this fan cools very well and quietly, much more quietly and effectively than the OEM fan that came with my processor. Even with a bit of overclocking, the processor has not overheated at all, and the fan does not seem to be running too high.
Summary: Purchased this cooler to replace a Zalman CNPS9500AT cooler whoose mouthing bracket broke. This cooler was a fraction of the price although it may not provide as much cooling as the Zalman it is more than sufficient for stock and mild OC setups. Very quietin use was a little bit of a pain to mount but nothing to worry about.
