2 out of 5 eggsartic a11 cpu cooler

Pros: Item arrived on time as always with newegg, was packaged well and was not hard to install on asrock extreme 4 board. the unit when installed was very quiet even at full rpm.

Cons: After installing it, I check the temps and at idle it was running high 50 to low 60 degrees. It was installed with the supplied thermal paste and on a fx 8320 processor. I removed it and tried artic silver paste and made sure the installation was correct the second time, the temp dropped to high 40 degree mark, so ran stability test from amd overdrive, in 10 minutes the temps were at the thermal limit and throttling back the processor, to make the story short after several times removing and re-installing it with the same results I finally decided to rma it for something else.

Other Thoughts: This cooler had a high review rating, the unit mounts to metal bars supplied with it meaning the stock amd clamp is removed, my conclusion was that the heatsink, (3 copper pipes with no heatsink around them, but on top of the pipes were not properly contacting the cpu as was seen in the imprint it the thermal paste. So this particular unit may have been warped or uneven across the flat face of the pipes without good contact, the cpu was running hot.

3 out of 5 eggsAF A11

Pros: Works OK as a replacement for OEM cooler, runs quiet, and the price was reasonable.

Cons: Doesn't work well enough to overdrive the APU. DO NOT purchase if you plan to overdrive your CPU/APU ...

Other Thoughts: Purchased to replace stock cooler for AMD A10-5800K hoping it might cool the APU a bit. No luck, APU temps remain the same.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as Advertised

Pros: Very quiet!
Cools very well
The cost vs performance is excellent!

Cons: None yet. fits nicely in my mid-size case

Other Thoughts: AMD has a weird way of measuring temps on some CPUs. They use "Thermal Margin" rather than actual temp which lets you know how much temperature headroom you have before the CPU will start to throtle back to keep from overheating.

Under stock cooling my AMD 760K would hit the max temp while gaming and would only have a thermal margin of 40c or so at idle.

See below for thermal margin comparison:
Stock Idle: 40-50c
Stock gaming: 10-0c

A11 idle: 70c+ (AMD thermal margin doesn't accuratly measure temps lower than 70c from max)
A11 gaming after 4 hours: 38-40c

The A11 has so far lived up to its advertising.
Would highly recommend!

5 out of 5 eggsArctic Freezer A11

Pros: Excellent!!! Easy mounting and super quiet. Great price for aftermarket cooling needs.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I think it's FUNNY how reviewers on here rate themselves as "Somewhat High" and "High" tech-knowledge, but when they write their experience- EVERYBODY can see that they Have No Clue.

Do Not torque down the nuts for any CPU Cooling block as this warps the motherboard and cpu socket- which in turn pulls the heat sink away from the cpu surface and Will Not Cool efficiently.

Thanks ARCTIC-Cooling and Newegg...

5 out of 5 eggsMost Underrated CPU Fan & Heatsink

Pros: Quiet and Cool.
Fits any Mid-Tower case.
Not too big and not too small.
Comes with thermal compound.

Cons: Instructions are sort of confusing at first but it pays off if you read carefully.

Other Thoughts: I love the A11 Artic right now.
It fits my DIYPC Green Solar Mid-Tower case and AMD FX-6300 very well and it keeps my CPU at <20 C in idle, compared to the AMD stock cooler which was cooling at almost 35 C+. I highly recommend this cooler, it is very underrated and deserves to be at the top where it should. Trust me, this cooler is the best.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It is quiet and keeps my 8320 nice and cool. Also, it is easy to install.

Cons: It is large, but that doesn't affect the eggs.

1 out of 5 eggsWarning

Pros: None ... Bought three of these at christmas. ... well cools a little

Cons: Warning. These fans do not cool a 125 watt amd x4 cpu processor. At full out the cpu will overheat in about 5 minutes. Do not buy this fan if you process media or anything similar. These fans are false advertising. Also these fans severely bend the motherboard when mounted.

Other Thoughts: Wasted my money.

5 out of 5 eggsHands down my favorite huge heatsink

Pros: Wonderful heatsink. This is a must-have if you have a Vishera. The stock AMD/Vishera heatsink is designed either by Dyson or Hoover ... one of the two. Slap this thing in your system ... and it's cool + quiet. Something you expect from much pricier units. Another bonus - is this is a little shorter than other huge heatsinks. If you have a tight case that needs a big heatink - give this one a try. It might just make your day!

Cons: None, really. However, the fan could go a little higher in the RPM department.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: I did a Prime95 torture test on my AMD FX8320 for over 15 minutes and the Arctic Freezer A11 never let it get above57C which is great! Safe max operating temperatures said by AMD is about 62C. So, 57C while it runs at 100% for 15 minutes is not bad at all. I highly recommend this Heatsink and fan.

Cons: Only con I could possible think of is that it's fairly large. The fan just barely clears my RAM.

Other Thoughts: Anybody who is having issues may have put the thermal paste on incorrectly. I did this at first. But after I cleaned it up and remounted the heatsink and fan, It worked wonders! FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS and don't put on too much thermal paste/compound!
