2 out of 5 eggsHeatsink has a high pitch whine sound and runs a little hotter than stock cooler

Pros: cheap

Cons: The 2 point articulation on the fan frame causes a small vibration in the fan which produces the high pitched whine that some reviewers have mentioned. Manufacturer should have made 3 or 4 points for the top of the fan frame attaching to the rest of the frame.

As for the heatsink being slightly hotter (+2C) than the old stock heatsink, you can always scrape off the paste and replace it with better paste.

1 out of 5 eggsARCTIC Alpine 64 GT Rev. 2 CPU Cooler - AMD, Supports Multiple Sockets, 80mm PWM Fan at 22dBA

Pros: price

Cons: Fan failed with in a week, does not cool my cpu down any more then the stock fan that it replaced. The clamp system of attaching to the cpu is a pain and very hard to press down.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet unless its running at full speed

Pros: Quiet, keeps my cpu cool and was very cheap

Cons: Can get really load if it runs at full speed.

Other Thoughts: This thing runs very quiet i can barely hear it. But if it hits full speed it gets really loud im running a phenom 2 x4 and my cpu never overheats and the fan never hits full speed even when rendering. But sometimes when i start my pc the fan cranks full speed and man it sounds just as loud as my stock cpu cooler. I got it on sale for less than ten buck so for the price it;s a very good product no problems so far.

4 out of 5 eggsVery quiet and affordable

Pros: Amazingly silent and the price is a no brainer bargain value. Very easy to install, took me 5 seconds, didn't have to remove motherboard.

Cons: Used the stock pre-applied thermal paste because I was lazy and the temps could be better. While it is slightly cooler than stock, i would expect an aftermarket to at least 10-20 + degrees cooler than stock on average, not the case here but it's super quiet so fair enough.

Other Thoughts: If you're not a heavy gamer who pushes your system for hours on end, this comes highly recommended. Especially for htpc users where the silence will definitely come in handy. Less than $10

4 out of 5 eggsFor the price, buy multiples

Pros: Great fan, almost completely quiet. Spins much slower than standard fans due to the design. I should have bought three.

Cons: I ordered two of them. One is as quiet as a mouse, the other has a slight bearing whine as it spins.
I tried taking the fan off the heatsink to oil it, only to find out that the fan has no oiling point. Meaning you have to disassemble the motor in order to get to the bearing housing. This also means that you have to take it off the heat sink in order to oil it. I didn't think it was worth it the trouble doing that every time I wanted to oil it.

Other Thoughts: To the people complaining about the stock thermal paste: That's just how commercial heat sinks are. You NEVER use stock thermal paste because they always put on the cheapest stuff they can buy in bulk. Always clean off the stock thermal paste with a newly bought heat sink and apply some of your own bought from a manufacturer that you trust.

That said, I do agree with the people who think that the whine is unbearable, it sounds like a bee constantly buzzing in my ear. Which is a stark contrast to the one in another computer that I can barely tell is even turned on.
Since it would cost more in shipping to RMA it than to buy another, I've simply opted to buy a third one.

4 out of 5 eggsIt is what it is.

Pros: CHEAP!
It's quiet - my 120mm case fans are 3x louder, even under full load (see other thoughts notes)
Tight and sure fit with processor surface.

Cons: Stock Thermal Paste is not that great.
A bit stiff trying to attach to an ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0. I thought I broke the motherboard the first time I attached it.

Other Thoughts: I knew what I was getting into when I got this. It is very inexpensive, and I just needed something better than the stock fan that came with my CPU. (Mind you it is an FX-6300 so was expecting to be running at the stated limit of this thing!) 95W is it's limit, I would not attempt to put this on an 8-core myself. I needed something to get me by until the liquid cooling system and case I wanted could go on sale. That said, be careful running this thing with the 95W CPU's I can bring this right up to 65C in about 30 minutes, but that is in part due to very bad air flow in my temporary case. Also, I had 65C temp issues right after installation, even with full fan speed. I cleaned the paste off from both the CPU and the heat sink, and applied Arctic Silver 5, which I have used for years, and that brought the nominal temp back down to 45C. However, heavy duty games (Skyrim, EVE, Borderlands2) tend to push this right back up there though.

I am also using one on an Althon 64 x2 4800 and that machine loves it. No problems with that build at all, again, I have replaced the stock thermal paste with Arctic Silver 5.

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice

Pros: Works well on FM1 APU - see con. Quiet / cool.

Cons: Thermal compound that was on it began to harden after a few hours of use and kept the heat sink from seating properly. I wondered if it was because of the cold weather outside during shipping.

Other Thoughts: Removed thermal compound and applied some Arctic Silver 5 I had, works perfect. Asrock A55M-HVS motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsDon't panic if your PC doesn't boot after installing it!

Pros: Low price
Nicely packaged
Thermal paste already applied
Keeps CPU cool
Supports several sockets, could be reused with upgrades

Cons: Quite big, make sure you have room.

Other Thoughts: Many years ago my CPU cooler started vibrating a lot so I improvised and replaced it with a case fan I had laying around. The CPU temperature was a little high but nothing to worry about. The system was virtually silent, you wouldn't know it was on.

Recently I wanted to use a 2nd hard disk I already had and I had to buy a more powerful PSU. Once I had everything up & running I noticed the CPU temperature was quite high even at low loads. I only had a case fan cooling down the CPU plus a fanless Radeon plus two hard disks. The only other fan in the system was the PSU... so I thought it was time to replace the heatsink and put a real CPU fan.

I wanted something inexpensive and silent for my "obsolete" AMD 64 and this fit the bill.

I took away the old sink, cleaned the old paste with alcohol, installed the new sink (I was worried to the amount of pressure I had to put on to engage the clip) and turned the computer on. The fan spinned but the PC wouldn't boot. Nothing. Not even a beep.

After a moment of panic ("I shouldn't buy parts, I would be better off just buying a regular computer and stop wasting time, etc.") I started researching online. It seems that's a fairly common problem.

I knew it couldn't have been the PSU because it was brand new. The underlying issue is that something may have been unseated and it causes the motherboard to not boot. The advice they give you is to unplug everything except the CPU fan and monitor and clear the CMOS to try and isolate the problem.

My concern was that I may have broken the CPU when I had to press quite hard to engage the new sink bracket. I went as far as removing the new heatsink again, take the CPU off its slot, checking the pins underneath and put everything back. Stll no luck.

I think in my particular case the problem may have been the memory modules. Even though I took them out and put them back in, the system only worked after I pressed in the already seated memory modules.

Then I installed the original case fan, this time for its intended purpose and tested again. Still good.

Afterwards I installed one card at a time (graphics card, firewire, TV tuner) testing to ensure everything was still working.

I'm writing this with the PC reassembled. I hear now the fans, but now I have two instead of one. Is not bothersome or too loud. The processor is noticeable cooler than before.

All in all, a great CPU cooler. It comes with thermal paste already pre-applied, it's pretty quiet, cools the CPU and it's very inexpensive.
