5 out of 5 eggsGood Cooler

1 out of 5 eggsCrushed in shipment

Pros: Was shipped quickly

Cons: Unfortunately was shipped USPS. Package looked ok but box that contained the fan was crushed on a cornet. 1 fan blade was broken. Cost me more to return than to just reorder from someone else that I get free shipping from.

1 out of 5 eggsStock cooler was better

Pros: Ran quieter than the tiny, loud, irritating stock AMD fan.

Cons: What's the point of a quieter fan if it can't keep anything cool?
Idle temps on my FX - 4200 were good in the low 30 degree Celsius range but under load it ran to nearly 80 degrees before I shut it down!
Wow, that's bad...

Other Thoughts: Max TDP seems to be 70 watts for this cooler, my CPU is 125 watts. Newegg does not inform you about this in the specs...

5 out of 5 eggsFollow up Review

Pros: Great cooling performance for my application... In my application.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Just a follow up to my last review. I forgot to mention what proc I run and what circumstances my setup is subject to.
I am running this cooler in my server with a 95 watt quad core Athlon II CPU. Being a server, CPU (and RAM more so) resources are mostly taxed by virtual server machines. I only have 3 VMs running and they operate under light resource loads.
The guys complaining about overheating 8 core FX series procs are expecting too much from a compact cooler.

3 out of 5 eggsStep #2 of the 'instruction manual' is priceless...

Pros: cheap price, seems like it's got a solid build. Long power cord for the fan

Cons: Step two of the 'instruction manual' reads :
(after removing your existing heatsink/fan)
"Clean the CPU carefully.Remove the residue paste by paper tissue carefully."

Please...
PLEASE

Do not use a facial tissue to remove the 'residue paste'...

Buy a thermal grease cleaner. Like the popular arctic silver brand.

Really, take my word on this, I wouldn't steer you wrong, internet!

5 out of 5 eggsKeeps my server cool

Pros: Works as well as the larger 92mm Arctic Alpine 64 Pro in my application. PWM fan is nice and quiet and no interference with motherboard features. More on that later.
I wanted an AM3/3+ specific cooler to avoid pulling the motherboard because I had install a backing bracket on the bottom of the motherboard.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I had an AM3+ motherboard give up the ghost I replaced it with one that has 4 RAM slots only to find that the larger Arctic Alpine 64 Pro blocked 2 of the memory slots. I ordered the motherboard and extra RAM in the same transaction so I had a problem. Arctic (back) to the rescue. Changed direction in mid-build. Started as a project to sell but prematurely dead MoBo ate up my profit margin the way dogs eat homework. My Dobo is a FANTASTIC NAS box but it can't do what a server will do so I built a server instead.

3 out of 5 eggsthe first AC product I didn't like

Pros: low cost, easy to install

Cons: noisier than other AC products I've used

Other Thoughts: I have always loved Arctic Cooling's CPU coolers. My main motivation for buying them is that AC seems to take noise seriously. This unit is not loud but is noisier than other AC coolers I've used. I think it is mainly due to vibration being coupled from the fan to the block and onward. Using a dynamic fan profile in the BIOS (e.g. "silent") you can hear the fan revving up and down quite audibly even with the case closed. the overall sound is sort of a whirring noise, like hearing a far-away motorized scooter. If set with a "normal" fan profile, the whirring sound is constant. please note, it is clearly a sound that comes from the motor/vibration and not from the chopping of air currents.

I am also not sure about the cooling capacity; using an AMD APU (dual core, 4ghz, 65W TDP), and running a dual compile job (make -j2), I experienced a surprising thermal shutdown of the system. I have not tried to re-create this scenario with the fan set to a "normal" profile.

I was going to order the Alpine 64 PRO Rev.2 which has rubberized bushings to support the fan assembly, but at the time Newegg did not have that product listed.

This product could probably be improved with a copper block and/or small heatpipes, and a decoupled fan assembly. But then it would not cost US $13 at retail.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Quite.

Cons: Attachment clips are terrible, spent 15 minutes with mobo out trying to get clips to attach. Arctic , I would suggest using metal clips not plastic.

Other Thoughts: Keeps my old Athlon II 4050e cool for not alot money.

4 out of 5 eggsGood replacment

Pros: Keeps my CPU (AMD FX-6300) at 28C under no load
Cheap

Cons: Strange noise, not sure of fan is hitting heat sink (reason for 4 eggs)

Other Thoughts: I bought an FX-6300 without a cooler. I was on a budget so I picked this one up. Runs nicely

2 out of 5 eggsnot good

Pros: It was shipped quickly

Cons: I know it was cheap, heck 9 bucks, but something as simple as fitting would be nice, the design for the bottom of the heat sink is almost like a rocking chiar, don't know if it was intended that way so you could "rock" the extremely bad plastic clips on to your CPU, but for me it didn't seem remotely safe to do that on my a106800k, its for a HTPC in a Silverstone media case, I gave it a try, but it just felt like I was trying to bend the board putting it on, so I just using the stock cooler the cpu came with till I find something else.

Other Thoughts: it didn't feel like it would fit, was oviously cheap so no realy lost, I can use it on a older cpu I have laying around prolly like a am2.
