ARCTIC Freezer A11 CPU Cooler for AMD, 150W Cooling Capacity, 3 Direct Touch Heatpipes, <23dBA Fan Noise
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Nice Fan - Good Price - Good Instructions - Paste Included 03/26/2014

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

Pros: Easy to mount, do not have to remove motherboard or back plate if you do one side at a time (leave one or two screws attached after you get the old brackets off). Took me about ten minutes total. Fan easy to un-mount and remount. Came with paste and good instructions. Very quiet and keeps my X4 740X nice and cool (cooler than stock fan).

Cons: No time machine included.

Other Thoughts: Copper tubes nice and smooth at mount point. Does not cover entire top of processor but most of it - and in the center where the cores generate the most heat.

MSI A55M-E33 FM2+ / FM2 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It's a nice idea, I'm sure.

Cons: Update from previous review. Received RMA refurb board, DOES NOT WORK WITH A SERIES APU!!! On top of that, after installing a Trinity processor, the BIOS will not update!!! Followed instructions explicitly and to the letter. No go. You cannot use update tool in BIOS, you have to create bootable DOS flash drive and use the command line. Even then when you execute flash screen goes blank, nothing happens. Tried three versions of utility and BIOS versions from U.S. and Asia site, no go. Inexcusable IMHO.

Other Thoughts: MSI dropped the ball on this one BIG TIME.

MSI A55M-E33 FM2+ / FM2 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Nice bios features, compact, good software for use in Windows to adjust features and monitor power/fans, etc.

Cons: Was a good board for 1 month until it started to reboot spontaneously, then wouldn't post. Currently in RMA process. The user manual was severely lacking; did not have information on a number of BIOS settings and had every language in one file. IMPORTANT: currently you cannot update BIOS if you have a Richland processor (A Series); their website states you have to have a Trinity processor

Other Thoughts: Maybe they will figure a work around to not being able to update the BIOS with a Richland CPU, they sure should. The User Manual should be specific to the Motherboard and have information on all BIOS options.
