5 out of 5 eggsVery Quiet

This review is from: ARCTIC Alpine 11 Pro Rev. 2 CPU Cooler - Intel, Supports Multiple Sockets, 92mm PWM Fan at 23dBA

Pros: Just installed. Replaced stock Intel fan. This is a basic office PC with a Celeron G1820 and an ECS mATX motherboard. The PC is positioned behind the screen using dead space on a corner desk. Using this fan along with an EVGA 430W power supply it is barely audible in this very quiet room at night. There is the slightest rush of air with no additional motor noises. The Intel stock fan was getting annoying after 6 months of use. We'll see how this one does as time goes by.

Cons: I had to ignore step 1 in the install procedure. It instructs you to mount the base and cooler so the fins run vertically in a typical configuration where the fan blows air towards the power supply above and perhaps a graphics card below. There was no way I could do that as the base bracket landed right on top of the closet memory stick and would not reach the board. I had to flip it 90 degrees. I verified that the thermal paste met the CPU correctly by temporarily mounting the heat sink/fan to the CPU then removing it before installing the two mounting screws. In this horizontal configuration air blows through the fins towards the memory sticks and out to an opening where an exhaust fan could be mounted. (see update).

Other Thoughts: I ran Prime 95 for a half hour and used HWmonitor. Typical core 0 / core 1 temps at idle were 33 / 28 C. During Prime 95 a high of 59 / 57 C was displayed. HWmonitor showed no increase in fan speed which was about 600 RPM. Note that I have the system BIOS set for Quiet mode.

Update: I contacted Arctic regarding the installation procedure. The reply: [Our recommendation in manual is that to avoid the heat flow directly to the RAM slot only, there is no different on cooling performance, you can install the cooler in both direction]. So there you have it...

2 out of 5 eggscheap plastic that the provider does not package adequately

This review is from: ARCTIC Alpine 11 Pro Rev. 2 CPU Cooler - Intel, Supports Multiple Sockets, 92mm PWM Fan at 23dBA

Pros: No idea, the product arrived damaged

Cons: cheaply made materials. It is inexpensive and there is a reason. Only buy this if you can pick it up yourself - fan will always arrive damaged if shipped

Other Thoughts: This is an inexpensive cpu cooler that is boxed in extremely cheap package material. The supplier of this order sent it in a padded envelope and the product arrived cracked in multiple places and unusable

4 out of 5 eggsFirst CPU Cooler Experience

This review is from: ARCTIC Alpine 11 Pro Rev. 2 CPU Cooler - Intel, Supports Multiple Sockets, 92mm PWM Fan at 23dBA

Pros: Installs without removing MB!!
Not too expensive.
Mounting system worked well with push pins.
Pre-applied thermal paste.
Works on 1155 socket.
4 pin connector

Cons: Fan noise about the same as Intel fan - temps the same.
Cooler had to be installed vertical - not horizontal because of RAM modules.
Corner suspension parts very flimsy - one broke - does not affect performance.

Other Thoughts: I needed a cooler that I could use with a 1155 MB - cost less than twenty dollars - fan noise about the same - temp about the same - no vast improvement - make sure the fan is all the way down on the frame before you screw fan down - installed mine twice to make sure fan made contact with CPU - installs without removing MB - this was a big plus without access to back of MB -
good secure pushpin mount - stable on MB - overall, I did not have as much improvement as I had hoped - nice
cooler overall - probably would buy again.
In the end, I adjusted fan noise in the bios settings.

2 out of 5 eggsLook elsewhere

This review is from: ARCTIC Alpine 11 Pro Rev. 2 CPU Cooler - Intel, Supports Multiple Sockets, 92mm PWM Fan at 23dBA

Pros: Quiet.

Cons: Poorly engineered. I liked the concept of frame and separate unit, but it won't make full contact with the CPU on 965 series motherboard. Failed 3x myself and similar results when sent to repair shop. Either overheats while in BIOS without any load, or jumps to overheating at slight load. Did all the thermal paste routines. Screw heads easy to strip. I'm not an overclocker.

Other Thoughts: Liked the Alpine cooler for my AMD motherboard, that's why I tried this Intel model.

4 out of 5 eggsGood but could be better

This review is from: ARCTIC Alpine 11 Pro Rev. 2 CPU Cooler - Intel, Supports Multiple Sockets, 92mm PWM Fan at 23dBA

Pros: - Nice that the top fan structure is isolated from the main heatsink by rubber mounts. This dramatically reduces vibration / noise.
- 4-pin CPU connector.
- Thermal paste is pre-appliedonto the heatsink
- Does feel flemsy but it works just fine.
- The fan blows DOWN on the CPU heatsink so the downdraft actually keeps the nearby Northbridge and Southbridge heatsinks cooler.

Cons: - Lots of overhang on the heatsink. Not much rom if you have a crowded motherboard with capacitors or RAM nearby.
- I already had another CPU heatsink/fan mounting system in place so I just used what I had. I did not use the supplied components. They really looked weak in my opinion. You need something that will really press the heatsink up against the CPU to get the best thermal transfer.

Other Thoughts: I installed this on an Asus P9D-MH motherboard running a Xeon E3-1285L V3 running at 3.1 Ghz. I ran a benchmark test at 100% CPU speeds and the CPU only got up to 76 C and the motherboard was at 53 C. Well under any critical or alarm limits. At idle the CPU stays at 37 C and the motherboard at 44 C. Not too bad.

4 out of 5 eggsGood cooler, good price

This review is from: ARCTIC Alpine 11 Pro Rev. 2 CPU Cooler - Intel, Supports Multiple Sockets, 92mm PWM Fan at 23dBA

Pros: Fit my ASRock 775 board well, cools very well my stock fan was getting up to 80C the Arctic is under 50.

Cons: you need to follow the printed instructions closely

Other Thoughts: It would be smart to attach the power cable before fitting the plastic bracket to the MB as doing it after is a bit of a fiddle.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad

This review is from: ARCTIC Alpine 11 Pro Rev. 2 CPU Cooler - Intel, Supports Multiple Sockets, 92mm PWM Fan at 23dBA

Pros: Fits in same space as intel stock cooler (mostly)
Works better than intel stock cooler
Pretty quiet even at 100% fan

Cons: Used in mini itx build, fan extends over the ram some and interferes with taller heat spreaders on ram - be wary.
Had to reseat it because the first time it didn't go all the way down or something

Other Thoughts: On mini itx build with i7 4790, under very heavy load stayed mostly between 50-55C, upper limit is probably 60C for that computer. Was hopeful it would be better, but the top-down style cooler typically doesn't perform that well.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat cooler, EXCEPT

This review is from: ARCTIC Alpine 11 Pro Rev. 2 CPU Cooler - Intel, Supports Multiple Sockets, 92mm PWM Fan at 23dBA

Pros: When it fits properly, it cools great, couple of degrees less than stock cooler.

Cons: Out of four purchased for various MB, only one actually fit correctly and worked. One of them LOOKED like it fit properly, but because it was hanging on the closest memory stick, it was unable to clamp down all of the way, so it was barely touching the CPU and temps went above 75C! Sure would like to return for refund, but at the price, it's impractical.

Other Thoughts: Be very careful what MOBO you purchase this for. If there are any caps, other parts, or memory anywhere close to the CPU socket, THIS COOLER WILL NOT FIT.

5 out of 5 eggsGood but tricky to mount

This review is from: ARCTIC Alpine 11 Pro Rev. 2 CPU Cooler - Intel, Supports Multiple Sockets, 92mm PWM Fan at 23dBA

Pros: Quiet fan. Machining on the heatsink bottom allows for a selection of positions (rotation) to achieve adequate capacitor clearance.

Cons: The fan mounting screws are only partially threaded. If you tighten them too much, the unthreaded portion can strip the nuts making it difficult to remove the screws. The nuts can be popped out and replaced.

Other Thoughts: The locking tabs for the press-in pins need to have their handles parallel to the sides of the frame else they can block the heat sink and keep it from laying flat on the CPU package. When looking from above it's not obvious when this occurs. To be safe, examine the heatsink/CPU fit from the side before installing the motherboard into the case.
