Extremely Uncool

Anonymous, Newegg
3 January 2016
  • Summary: Nope.
  • Pros: It spins upon boot?
  • Cons: Right from the start, there is a very noticeable wobble in the fan. It's a new system I'm building, and I've not yet loaded the OS. So the fan is under very light load. If there's a wobble now, I'm concerned about what might happen when that fan speeds up under load. I can try to 'unhook' and 're...

Faulty Fan

Jesse G., Newegg
2 October 2015
  • Summary: Fan didn't work out of box. Did some googling and found that sometimes the fan needed to be pushed in a little more. Pushed the fan in and it worked for about 1 minute and then stopped.
  • Pros: Comes with pre-applied thermal past
  • Cons: Faulty fan

You get what you pay for

Anonymous, Newegg
17 September 2015
  • Summary: HP Elite 8100 CMT I7-860 LGA 1156 2.9G After being unable to find any information on replacing the stock CPU cooler on the web (seems a lot of info for build-your-own, nothing for off-the-shelf computers) and downloaded utilities showing the I7-860 running at 90C (idle at 55C), I ordered this unit.
  • Pros: Looks well designed. Thermal compound seems good.
  • Cons: Installation pictures are a little difficult to figure out. Figure 1 'Holes' for 1366 matched my 1156 socket. Installing the heat-sink to the mount plate caused the mount plate to pop off the motherboard.

Not Good

Judith G., Newegg
16 July 2015
  • 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...

Started flinging lube

Reed D., Newegg
2 July 2015
  • Pros: Was cheap and effective at cooling
  • 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.

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.

17 February 2015
  • 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
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.
