Summary: I've had this cooler since February of 2014 and have not had a single problem with my cpu temps. They usually hang around 55c under load, and that's with an old Compaq Presario case that I have been using that doesn't utilize airflow all that well.
Pros: Keeps temps cool. Over a year of use and not a single problem.
Summary: Some people may have clearance issues with their RAM like i did. (I simply moved my memory over since it is dual channel and their are four slots on the motherboard.
Pros: -Amazing Cooling for CPU (FX-6300) -26 while Idle, 39 under FULL LOAD -Budget Friendly
Cons: (Only one con) Unfortunately for AMD users, the heatsink can only be mounted in one of two ways: Having the fan pulling air from the top to the bottom of the case or the opposite. **Intel does not have this problem!!
Summary: Even though it only contacts about 65% of my CPU, the CPU temps are staying under 54c. Even under load of Aida 64 stress test, 3D Mark running a benchmark or gaming. All while overclocked from 3.5 to 3.85Ghz. I bought the cooler thinking heat was the reason my CPU wouldn't go up to 4.0 from an OC and was wrong. But the decrease in heat and noise makes me happy I bought it anyway.
Pros: It keeps my FX6300 about 12c cooler than the stock system did, at 1/5th the RPM. (Stock was going up over 10,000 RPM).
Cons: The directions are HORRIBLE! Literally just five pictures. No words, just five pictures.
Summary: Build is: Asus A88X - Plus MB AMD A10-7850K Kaveri APU Gskill Ripjaws 2133 RAM Crucial MX100 512 GB SSD Everything works well together.
Pros: Fairly easy to apply to an AMD FM2+ socket. Just line up the two brackets on the conventional AMD HSF knobs and screw them down until lightly snug, then plug fan into header - you're set! This cheaper aftermarket HSF "tower" does a good job of cooling my AMD A10-7850K Kaveri. It keeps the temps mostly to 45 degrees C. when doing just about everything. I've got a Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO on my other comp and it's probably a little better at cooling, but it's HUGE! Th...
Cons: Not much of a con for an ex-millwright, but I had to remove a little of the fan shroud plastic corner with a bench grinder in order to get the Gskill ripjaws to fit in the close RAM sockets. No problem. The fan is still very quiet.
Summary: I only have two of my memory slots occupied, and they happen to be slots A2 and B2. If I had them all filled, I would have needed to turn the cooler in another direction since the fan sits over slot A1 on my motherboard. So think things out before you mount...wow, that rhymes.
Pros: The push pin mounting design keeps you from having to remove the motherboard from the case if you have an older case that doesn't allow access to the back side of the motherboard. Unlike the stock cooling fans that I personally seem to have trouble getting to grasp the mounting holes in the board, the Arctic design gives you a "no doubt about it" hold onto the motherboard. Regarding performance, I have 10-15 C lower operating temps on all 4 of my i5-2500k cores as opp...
