ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro Rev. 2, CPU Cooler - Intel & AMD, Multi-Directional Mount, 92mm PWM Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works as intended. Normal use running stock sees around 30c, when the cpu is pushed it sees around 40c without much change in the fan.

Cons: The heatsink can only point up or down, not to the side. This caused it to overhang my ram and forced me to use some laying around without the fins.

Other Thoughts: The heatsink only covers the center of the cpu, which was alarming to say the least. But it's been working properly. Infinitely better then that sorry little thing that came with the CPU.

AMD FX-4300 Vishera Quad-Core 3.8GHz (4.0GHz) Socket AM3+ 95W Desktop Processor FD4300WMHKBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great Processor.

Cons: Sad Heatsink.

Other Thoughts: This is an update on my last review: The heatsink is a sad puppy when pushed. (Any core reaches near 100%) Strictly speaking it does work, but it spins like it's trying to go orbital.

I found my old 1333 (short) ram that will give me room for a proper heatsink.

A for effort. F for wasted metal. Save the planet, MAN!

COUGAR Spike Black Steel / Plastic MicroATX Mini Tower Gaming Case with USB 3.0 and 12CM Cougar Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: As advertised, very solid with everything in proper alignment. (An impotant issue sometimes on budget cases!)

Cons: None. The plastic clamps for the drives some have been complaining about worked fine for me.

Other Thoughts: Can't believe all the suppossed people with max tech rating bagging on this case (on the final rating) over issues you can read on the spec tab! This is a relatively small case, so things will be pretty packed. Have a beer, check out your stuff, and work out a plan on the order you'll put everything in, and you'll be OK. For me, it's running my Linux Beast with 3 HDDs that I'm writing this review on.
