5 out of 5 eggsEggcellent

Pros: very quiet and cool

Cons: Installation is kinda a pain but not that big of a deal if you just read the instructions

Other Thoughts: I've always used artic cooling heat sinks and they always do me good. This heatsink keeps my AMD FX-6350 6 core cpu at 28C which is amazing. You cant go wrong with this.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent quality cooler

Pros: VERY solid build quality. Solid mounting done by screws rather than "tool-less clips". Quiet fan. 92mm fan fits in limited height cases where 120mm fan won't. Easy install. Instructions are written clearly for when you question which direction the brackets mount. Staggered heat pipes dissipate heat better than when they are aligned. Smooth surface mates well with the CPU.

Cons: Doesn't come with a back plate...but any good quality MoBo should have one. Limited to front/back air flow, cannot be positioned for up/down (or side to side in my case). Heat sink compound is hidden in packaging so I didn't find it until I was disposing with the box (but I intended to use my own anyway).

Other Thoughts: This was my first Arctic Freezer item...and it won't be my last. Next time I need a cooler, I will probably look at this brand first. I replaced a 120mm fan unit that didn't quite fit my 4U case. I run a slightly overclocked FX-8120 (running 4 Ghz) on an ASUS Sabertooth MoBo...I am having no heating issues with this. The cons listed weren't a concern for me. You might have issues with clearing the RAM if you want air flowing front to back on some MoBos...in my case, the air is moving back to front, so again it wasn't an issue (and I failed to check if it would clear the other direction, sorry).

5 out of 5 eggsGood performance, excellent price

Pros: - Low price
- Very good performance
- Secure installation mechanism
- Easy to install
- Height show just about every case
- Fan is very easy to put on/remove/install

Cons: - 92mm fan, not 120mm (but this makes the height more acceptable to most cases , so not really a con, but more of a design decision)

Other Thoughts: Great performance for the price. I needed shorter height heatsink/fan -- the Noctua-12 (with 120mm fan) would not fit. Also, this one is much less expensive.

This was easy to install and uses a good mechanism for securing to the motherboard. The fan just snaps onto the side of the heatsink, but it secure -- no fears of it coming loose unless you purposefully remove it. Fan is of average quality -- not silent, but quiet enough that I have no complaints.

AMD
AMD A10-5800K Trinity 3.8GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with Radeon HD 7660D only gets up to about 58C under full stress (CPU & GPU). Under normal conditions it stays at 36-40C. (It should be noted that the official max operating temp is 74C.)

5 out of 5 eggsGood value

Pros: Better temps than the stock cooler.
Much quieter than the stock cooler. Even at 100% fan speed it is just a hair louder than the stock cooler at idle.
Solid mounting hardware.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Surprised by the performance, I was skeptical about using a cooler with less than a 120mm fan for a server, not now.

1 out of 5 eggsUpdate of earlier review

Pros: See earlier review posted on 3/17/14.

Cons: As advertised, the Arctic Freezer A11 cooler is rated at "150W cooling capacity. I initially installed it for cooling an AMD A10-5800K CPU which is rated by the mfr at "100W." My CPU temps had begun to exceed 60 C with subsequent shutdowns. I have recently replaced the A11 cooler with another brand. Since replacement, my CPU temp has not exceeded 50 C, nor have I had any shutdowns.

Other Thoughts: The Arctic Freezer A11 cooler manufacturer does not specify the criteria used to establish the "150W Cooling Capacity." I can only say that, in my case, this cooler did not maintain my CPU temp in a range allowing for effective operation.

4 out of 5 eggsSeems to work well.

Pros: Very easy to install (FM2 processor). Very quiet.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for Athlon/ Phenom overclockers

Pros: This cooler installed very easily on my Asus M5 A99X EVO motherboard (comes with a threaded metal backing plate stock). If you're smart and you take your time with the mounting brackets, you can remove one screw at a time from your stock plastic mount, place the spacer on the post, and screw one corner of the new mount loosely in place. If you do this, you won't even have to mess with the rear mounting plate at all! It's extremely quiet and keeps my AthlonII x64 628 around 40C while gaming. It peaks around 52C in prime95. Those temps are at 3558 MHz, up from 2800 MHz stock. My motherboard temp is usually around 25C, and the CPU idles at 32C. I have the fan set to be fairly quiet; it doesn't get above 60% until 50C. You can't even hear it over my case fans until it hits 75%. As I said, install was easy. I used some Prolima Tech PK-1 thermal compound instead of the supplied Arctic MX-4 just because i've had excellent results with the PK-1. It lowered the temp of my HD6870 by 10C after 6 months of using the stock XFX paste. I placed a very thin line about 3/4" long on the center of each heat pipe and twisted it a bit in each direction before screwing it down.

Cons: I can't think of any cons except for the incredibly long fan cable. There's seriously about a foot of fan cable, and most motherboards i've seen have the CPU plug within inches of the mount. Zip ties made it disappear under the cooler, though.

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this to my friends that don't plan to overclock just because it's so much quieter than pretty much any stock heat sink arrangement. One of my friends has a Haswell i5 that's not overclocked and he bought the intel version (obviously) and it made a remarkable difference in noise. Obviously it works well in some overclock situations as well. I believe the maximum TDP is 150 watts per the manufacturer's website, so a 95 or 125 watt CPU would be right at home with this, with some headroom left to OC. HIGHLY recommended as a replacement for the stock fans that come with AMD FX series if you don't plan to OC. It's much quieter, cooler, and the 92mm will fit easily into most cases that aren't small form factor.
