Pros: It cooled a tiny bit better than stock cooler on i5 4690.
Cons: I already wrote a 5 star review for this product...so this is my revised one. I noticed small specks of a liquid-looking substance on my motherboard and other parts of my computer while installing some new fans. I could not for the life of me understand what this could be. Did I accidentally drop...
Summary: Working with Arctic on the warranty was OK, except I finally gave up after sending pictures, screenshots of the bios, etc. I ended up taking the DOA fan off and installing it in place of the working Freezer 7 fan. DOA one did not work, the first worked fine. Seems proof enough that it is DOA.
Pros: Quiet, easy enough to install, good cooling.
Cons: One was DOA, and was out of the Newegg return/RMA window. Contacted Arctic customer service, and they were responsive, but not much help.
Summary: It looked Awesome putting it in and looking at, however the looks alone will not protect my CPU from heat, for which it was designed. My system: GA-X48T-DQ6 (F6 Bios Version) My CPU: Intel XEON X3320 2.5 GHz Family 6 Model 7 Stepping 7 Ext. Model 7 Revision M1
Pros: Easy Installation, it came with thermal compound, easy to follow instructions, did not have to motherboard out of case.
Cons: FAN was not constant... most of the time it ran between 2027 rpm and 2045 rpm and drop to 30 rpm for no reason, this is a very big no no..as this could fry a CPU if left overnight :( Some times the fan would not move unless you touched it to make it move. i put this 150W rated heat sink and fan o...
Cons: Started noticing smears of lubricant all over my other components. Guess the fan bearing oil is getting flung out. Hope it's not conductive. Time to buy a different brand. Don't get this fan if you mount it horizontal and run it at 100% speed.
Summary: Soo for some of you looking for a upgrade from your stock cpu heatsink and need something good and cheap..and want to know if it will be worth the upgrade.. Here is my temp results... cpu.... Intel g3528 running @ 4.2GHz stock heatsink max temp running prime 95...
Pros: Good Price, High quality, Quite, Lower my cpu temp
Summary: I've long since upgraded to a Xeon E3-1235. I long for the day when AMD will return to a more competitive position regarding CPUs.
Pros: Mounted to an older AMD Athlon II X4 641, which isn't exactly the coolest (or fastest) CPU. That is, it's a terribly inefficient CPU. This is a very welcome cooler! Significant difference in both heat dissipation and noise versus the stock cooler.
Cons: About as difficult to install as any other AMD cooler.
Summary: Cooler improved idle temps on an i7 about 10-12C compared to stock Intel cooler which is pretty good! That being said I don't think it's powerful enough for any aggressive overclocking.
Pros: Inexpensive, sturdy, light. More effective than Intel stock cooler. Fan assembly is very easy to remove for installation and cleaning.
Cons: Fan is close to motherboard and the height can't be adjusted which makes it incompatible with the RAM slots on some mobos. The cooler is attached with this bolt/flat spring assembly that is difficult to tension correctly and difficult to access. The tension will need to be adjusted several times ...
