Bad Fan

Petrus B., Newegg
21 May 2015
  • Summary: At 100% fan speed is not quiet, and doesn't even do a good job cooling. When running at 100%, speed fluctuates. Probably a bad fan. To start it, you may need to knock it.
  • Pros: Excellent sink with 3 double copper pipes, excellent mounting
  • Cons: Really bad fan. Fan doesn't start most of the times. Only if you set it in BIOS/UEFI at 100% for all CPU temperatures. Cannot set 'smart fan' to get quiet system.

Meh

Kenneth R., Newegg
13 February 2015
  • 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.
  • 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 p...

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. Th...
