Fan doesn't work

Peter M., Newegg
9 February 2016
  • Summary: I'm editing this review after I was able to fix the fan. It has to be taken off the heatsink, and then the fan has to be pressed onto the bearing so it snaps in, and then it works. I found the fix in a comment to a youtube video, after Arctic support never responded.
  • Pros: I can't even boot with it due to the broken fan it came with, so none.
  • Cons: Came with non working fan. Bad install instructions Might be too large for some cases.

Bought two, one was DOA

David P., Newegg
15 July 2015
  • 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.

Probably Don't Buy

Ralph M., Newegg
26 April 2015
  • 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)
  • Cons: Really annoying high pitched whine.

Not goood for AMD FX 8 core chips

DarCwuN, Amazon
18 June 2014
  • Summary: This could not keep my fx-8320 cool, computer frequently heated to the point where it auto shut off when the thermal protection kicked in, i think the culprit was the undersized base that did not cover the entire chip. The only plus was that it was whisper quite.

Cant speak on it's cooling abilities.

Paul, Amazon
31 January 2013
  • Summary: I've seen very good reviews on this HSF. So I figured I'd give it a go. I have a AMD Phenom 2 x4 black edition on an msi atx mobo. Unfortunately this heat sink would not fit properly. It wouldn't clamp down correctly. The AMD clips included are too wide.

  • Summary: The Good: Inexpensive, which is why I got it after breaking my budget on the MB, Chip, and Ram. Oh well .. you get what you pay for.

  • Summary: The Good: Installs without having to mount a back plate. Package was very easy to open, didn't even need a knife. Just unlatched a few sides, and it opened right up. I've had heat sinks that were wrapped like they were gold.
