5 out of 5 eggsNice cheap upgrade

This review is from: ARCTIC Freezer A11 CPU Cooler for AMD, 150W Cooling Capacity, 3 Direct Touch Heatpipes, <23dBA Fan Noise

Pros: Cools better than stock cooler (for me at least)
Makes my build look a little cooler (at least, to ppl who haven't built a PC)

Cons: The sticker on the top of the fan (as in picture) Kinda takes away from the look.

Other Thoughts: Even with the sticker, I guess I could try to take it off. but it's not such a bad con.
It works fine, and helps. So I like it =)

5 out of 5 eggsLove these coolers.

This review is from: ARCTIC Freezer A11 CPU Cooler for AMD, 150W Cooling Capacity, 3 Direct Touch Heatpipes, <23dBA Fan Noise

Pros: One of my favorite coolers for both AMD and Intel (i11) when I want to save a few dollars or when I need something smaller and lighter than Hyper 212 Evo.
Very easy installation.
Very good pressure on CPU and socket, no movement, very reliable, since it uses screws.
Small amount of hardware to go with it. Reuses already good stock metal backplate from AMD motherboards. Just a few risers and screws added.
Very quiet fan, even on high RPM it's still very good.
Very well thought construction, air does not escape the fan uselessly, it all goes through fins without gap between fan and cooler.
It's not tall, and not very heavy.
Direct heatpipe touch.
Easy to remove fan, but it holds well.
Holds temperatures of stock 8320/8350 around 25-30C on idle and usually within 55C on Prime load. Can handle average overclocks easily.

Cons: When you remove screws from stock baseplate it falls down, gotta hold it while risers are added and heatsink installed on top. Better to place it on flat surface to support from the back, install cooler first, then put mobo to your case.
Very tight outer packaging box, while pulling cooler I have bent a few fins.

Other Thoughts: Perfect option at this price point. Great if you are planning to ship your computer anywhere. Will keep using when overclock is not a priority or when taller coolers don't fit or if shipping far away.

5 out of 5 eggsVery impressed!

This review is from: ARCTIC Freezer A11 CPU Cooler for AMD, 150W Cooling Capacity, 3 Direct Touch Heatpipes, <23dBA Fan Noise

Pros: The A11 is a huge improvement. It is keeping my AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE at 43 degrees Celsius even when the CPU is maxed out video encoding! My old Arctic Freezer 7 Pro was at 53 degrees and was louder. This thing is silent, I'm very happy. I had 2 Arctic Freezer 7 Pro fans die, each after ~3 years, so hopefully this model is more resilient. We'll see.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I've bought a lot on newegg.com but never took the time to write reviews, until now. This fan is working so well I decided I had to write one.

4 out of 5 eggsCool and Quiet, but feels cheap

This review is from: ARCTIC Freezer A11 CPU Cooler for AMD, 150W Cooling Capacity, 3 Direct Touch Heatpipes, <23dBA Fan Noise

Pros: Finally got it installed in a working system. Wasn't super difficult to install. Does a decent job of cooling. Bios said it was 19C with the side panel off. Hasn't gone over 35C yet [that I've seen]
Super quiet! Haven't done anything super intensive yet to listen to it rev up, but either was it's quieter than my old Rosewill.
Not super big like the EVO's.

Cons: While not super difficult to install, it's annoying to have to take the fan off to reach one screw. Fan doesn't slide off easily, catching every slot of the heatsink on it's way, which feel like they could bend. Whole thing feels cheap and almost brittle in your hand.
On my 970 Gaming board the fan hits the first Ram chip [X-skill w/dissipater], so the fan isn't 100% seated on the top of the heatsink.
Cord is about 3 inches longer than necessary. Had to wrap it around the fan and plug it in to keep it out of the way.
No sign of being catastrophic yet, but one of the pipes isn't flush with the rest at the bottom. You can see and feel a lip between the center and left pipe.

Other Thoughts: For the price vs performance, this is a great deal! I feel like I just didn't get a great one due to the uneven base - but I have a habit of stuff like that xP

3 out of 5 eggsFlange is uneven

This review is from: ARCTIC Freezer A11 CPU Cooler for AMD, 150W Cooling Capacity, 3 Direct Touch Heatpipes, <23dBA Fan Noise

Pros: Has great reviews, nice design and specs.

Cons: CPU flange is uneven and appears to be badly machined. Using a straightedge, only the center tube touches the processor...the outer two are a fraction of a mm away.

I can't tell if this is by design as Arctic tech support has not contacted me back. I have to pay for a return to Newegg even if defective so I'm stuck with it.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: ARCTIC Freezer A11 CPU Cooler for AMD, 150W Cooling Capacity, 3 Direct Touch Heatpipes, <23dBA Fan Noise

Pros: Great cooler. Fits perfectly inside my micro ATX case and with only two fans keeps my AMD FX-6300 running at around 55F idle and around 75F under heavy load. Well worth the extra money over coolers for the same socket.

Cons: None. Its quiet and very efficient

5 out of 5 eggsSurprisingly OK for the cost

This review is from: ARCTIC Freezer A11 CPU Cooler for AMD, 150W Cooling Capacity, 3 Direct Touch Heatpipes, <23dBA Fan Noise

Pros: Direct copper contact with CPU heatsink surface
Big quiet fan
Fan can blow from either side of pipe cooler heatsink fins.
Cools AMD FX-6300 CPU at 20 to 32 C playing videos ect
Huge pipe cooler heatsink.
Even though it's only 3 copper pipes, they work good. Heavy gaming might need a bigger footprint like four copper pipe.

Cons: 3 pipes does not cover very much of the AMD CPU heatsink.
Next time I'll get the four pipe at least for a little more coverage..

Installation was cumbersome. Hard to line up six holes at once and tighten 4 evenly and screws are slightly under the edge of the fins. Had to leave all 4 loose to align, not 2 as the "manual" states.

This setup does not cool the North Bridge heatsink. The original at least blew some air over it. You may have to install a side cover case fan.

Cooler fins are not copper.

Other Thoughts: I was surprised how efficient this cooler is with only 3 copper pipes but I only got this to cut costs and it works good so I will leave it on.
Make sure you have air blowing on the North Bridge near the CPU. I had to install a very small fan right on top of it and it is cooler than ever.

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely Essential

This review is from: ARCTIC Freezer A11 CPU Cooler for AMD, 150W Cooling Capacity, 3 Direct Touch Heatpipes, <23dBA Fan Noise

Pros: Very quiet-maxes out at around 2,000 RPM. Installation was fairly simple. If you properly order the removal of the stock cooling bracket screws, you can finesse the backing plate problem without accessing the back of the mainboard.
Exhausts straight out the back of my case into a big Corsair fan. Large, but t unreasonably sized, it went into my old Cooler Master Stacker 810-you could install a ceiling fan in that beast :) The price is a pittance. It could easily cost twice what it does, and it would still be worthwhile.

Cons: None that I've found.

Other Thoughts: This is my fourth or fifth AC CPU cooler. I've had (have, actually) (2) Arctic 64s and an old (8 years and counting) Freezer 7. They're all quiet and just keep going. Probably the best price/performance ratio out there. Highly recommended products.
