Pros: The cooler provided excellent cooling while it still worked.
Cons: I have been using this cooler for less than 6 months, and i noticed that the fan stopped spinning. I didnt think it was a big deal so I opened my case and checked if everything was plugged in properly, which it was, so i decided to put it on another fan header and still had no luck.
Pros: I have an intel i5 4690 on my new Gigabyte motherboard that needed a better cooling solution than the stock cpu cooler. The Arctic Freezer was very easy to install and immediately dropped my idle temps from 39c to 30c and my load temps from 68c to 45c...and this is just right after installing the...
Summary: I had bought this not-so-lil' guy to replace a competitors fan that was sending my Quadcore 9750B temp up to 70 deg C. This thing brought the temp down to 40 degs without half trying...and cost $15 less than the competitor's fan. And is a darn sight quieter.
Pros: Very quiet, and brings CPU temp down by 25 degrees
Pros: Bought this cpu fan to replace the really loud stock fan on my AMD 8320 CPU. This fan is much quieter except for the extremely high pitched whine. It drives me and the dogs crazy. It keeps the CPU cool, but don't buy it if you can hear high frequencies (If you're deaf, go ahead)
Summary: I have had my Socket 1366 (ASRock x58 Supercomputer/Core i7 920 CPU) system for six years and it has been great, but the stock cooler has been giving up the ghost. I noticed about six months ago I was idling around 65 Celsius, and recently I've been in the 90s when busy.
Pros: Easy installation, much better than stock cooler.
Summary: My main Issue with this heatsink is that it blocks the first RAM slot!!
Pros: Keeps CPU cool (AMD FX 4350) even at overclock the temps reach 48°C and stays there.
Cons: For AMD users. The fan will only be able to face straight up or down. And if you have a mid size ATX motherboard chances are when you install this cooler you wont be able to fit the first RAM stick because the heat sink is in the way!!!
