Useless

Ranjan K., Newegg
11 May 2015
  • Summary: Shall think half a dozen times before buying an Arctic product again, if at all.
  • Pros: None, inspite of hearing so much about Arctic.
  • Cons: This is the worst cooler I have ever seen. Mounting was well near impossible, with a very high possibility of siding on the thermal interface and cleaning it out. Works very much below the the stock cooler on an AMD FX8350.

4770k Keeps Cool

Jason P., Newegg
11 April 2014
  • Summary: I was thinking of going with a 120mm fan but decided to go with this cooler instead since I don't have a case with a cutout behind the motherboard to install a backplate. Install was very easy. Even though it uses a 92mm fan it moves a lot of air, it's pretty quiet, and keeps my 4770k cool.
  • Pros: Very easy install. 30C drop in temp under full load. No more throttling using AIDA 64 FPU stress test.
  • Cons: None

DARN

MARK F., Newegg

  • Summary: Bummed!!! Wanted this one to work. AARRRGGG!
  • Pros: Great design, ball bearing fan for continuous on, easy to install. Everything about this fan/ heat-sink I liked.
  • Cons: Once again with an Arctic freezer cpu fan it would not work correctly and gave me BSOD! Could not believe it. Tried every conceivable fix with bios to turning off settings- you name it.

Excellent

  • Summary: I love this cooler, Artic knows how to make a fantastic cooler and super easy to install.
  • Pros: Keeps my Ivy Bridge I5 3570K at 28C Idle and no more than 65C at torture test P95. Actually it only hit 65 for a flash and stayed around 60C. These are great temps because the I5 Ivy 3570K has a Tj max of 105C. Very quiet and so easy to install. The install is so nice and easy, best I have ever s...

Awesome but watch size

Rhandi K., Newegg
25 June 2013
  • Pros: extremely quiet in my HTPC and keeps it cool 24/7
  • Cons: watch size requirements around the proc and height, some may run into issues. I cannot use the 4th ram slot with this heatsink but 12GB is enough for my HTPC

BEWARE

  • Summary: This cooler will not clear even low profile ram, cannot be used with any AMD mini mo boards. DO NOT BUY IT WILL NOT FIT. Now I am past the return window, stuck with it (paper weight?). Tried it on an Asus and Biostar mini, will not clear low profile ram. Same outcome.
  • Pros: NONE
  • Cons: USELESS

Workin' Good

Robin T., Newegg
17 May 2013
  • Summary: Cooler rocking on top of a AMD 965 Black
  • Pros: Quiet and seems to cool the CPU Good.
  • Cons: Not easy to install. Had to have my Co-worker work the screwdriver while I held the bracket. I was trying to decide between the Coolmaster Hyper 212 and this cooler (both coolers were at the same price at the time). If I had it to do over again... I would the Coolmaster, but what is done is done....
