Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: low price, good thermal paste
  • Cons: Cheaply made, just about impossible to put on AMD card the "prongs" have super small screw holes located at the most awkward angle possible.

Meh

Kenneth R., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: It was relatively easy to install. I was replacing a stock fan that couldn't keep up anymore, and not having to tear the entire box apart to install a backplate was a major selling point. Initial install went fine, except for one thing - the fan did not spin much. When booted, the fan would spin for about 10 seconds, then the BIOS would pop up a CPU Fan Error, and the fan would stop spinning.
  • Pros: Didn't need to remove motherboard to install backplate
  • Cons: fan contained in shoddy plastic frame, fan doesnt spin

Artic Freezer 7 Pro Rev. 2

Joseph H., Newegg
23 January 2015
  • Summary: I have a AMD 1090T 6 core cpu. I re-installed OEM heatsink/fan, after noticing that pad too small and only 3 tubes,(that goes into pad) not 6 as stated. I did not trust this cooler's thermal conduction qualities. No way this is 150 watt rated in my way of thinking.
  • Pros: Small size, low cost.
  • Cons: Too small, copper pad will only cover center of CPU. Only 3 tubes in a U shape.

Bad purchase.

James O., Newegg
7 December 2014
  • Pros: I don't know, didn't use.
  • Cons: Horrible plastic mounting pins. Not screws, plastic tabs that plug into the mobo. Upon receipt, one of the tabs was badly bent. Also, you have to put so much pressure on them to get them into the mobo that I was afraid I was going to break the board.

Will not work properly on AMD processor.

David C., Newegg
20 November 2014
  • Pros: None. It will not install properly on an AM3+ processor.
  • Cons: This cooler was designed to be installed on an Intel processor. I installed it on an AMD FX 8320 processor using the provided brackets, and, when I attempted to boot the system, the processor very quickly heated up to 72 degrees plus and the system shut down. I removed the cooler, installed new paste (Arctic MX2) with the same results. I removed the cooler, which looks similar to the Arctic 64 that I have used on other builds but has the crummy bracket. (Incidentally,...

Fan Died after 5 months

Matthew W., Newegg
18 September 2014
  • Pros: Even without the fan spinning at all, The heatsink is doing an excellent job keeping my CPU cool with only the air flow in the case. And Antec 900 1.0.
  • Cons: Died after 5 months of use.

Not All It's Cracked Up To Be!

Eric Z., Newegg
3 September 2014
  • Pros: Price is fairly good. Cooler part is good. When working, it does keep the OC'd CPU nice and cool.
  • Cons: Regular fan failure! The original fan, as installed by the custom builder of my PC on an overclocked i5 3470K, failed in about a year. A clear window on the case let me see that the fan was not working. Arctic was good about a replacement which arrived quickly after me making a warranty claim. This fan failed after about 9 additional month. Again Arctic was good about a replacement. I'm just disturbed that one day I will cook my CPU without notice. What good is a 6 ye...

Does NOT Cover AMD A10-7850K

J F., Newegg
3 July 2014
  • Summary: I purchased the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo to replace this piece, and it worked much more effectively. not only did it cover the entire chip, it lowered the temp almost 10 degrees more than this thing could.
  • Pros: None for AMD chips
  • Cons: Purchased to replace stock fan on a budget build with an AMD A10-7850k. The fan did not cover the entire chip, and left over a 1/4inch of the chip uncovered all around. Will definitely be returning it, as this was not stated in the product description.

Worthless for AMD.

Steve H., Newegg
14 June 2014
  • Summary: Seriously. Don't look at this review and think "This won't happen to me". It comes with a square bracket. If your motherboard's screws for the heat sink aren't a perfect square, it won't fit.
  • Pros: Looks pretty. I'm sure it works great for Intel.
  • Cons: It doesn't come with the right bracket to attach to an AMD board. Had to buy it on Another vendor.. Additionally, the way it attaches to that (not included) bracket is nothing short of rediculous. I was literally in awe. You have to screw the two flaps onto the heat sink, and then attach them to the hooks on the new mount. But be careful - if you screw the flaps all the way down before mounting it, you won't be able to mount it. Additionally, even after mounting it, y...
