Cheap fan, good heatsink 12/3/2019 8:21:11 AM

Pros: Beefest cooler to height clearance ratio you can get.

Putting a new fan in is trivial with zip ties.

Putting a noctua high rpm 120mm fan improved thermals by 8 degrees Celsius vs the stock fan.

Cheap, fits into my EVGA DG-73 case and fit what I was looking for.

Cons: Is cheap construction, one of the plastic side holders came off when I took the cooler out of the box.

The stock fan is quiet but didn't improve thermals of my Ryzen 5 3600x stock cooler.

Overall Review: looked at shorter noctua coolers but none of the ones that would fit into my case would improve thermals on the stock ryzen cooler according to other reviews and were 60 dollars. My goal was to improve thermal performance at under 60 dollars, this cooler plus a noctua NF-P12 accomplished that.

it works cooling a i7 2600k @4.5ghz to 64C 10/9/2019 6:34:33 PM

Pros: it works pretty good

Cons: fan is kinda loud, has a special fan made just for the cooler, so if it ever dies you will have to buy a fan for it from arctic

Overall Review: decent

Performance Air Cooler on a Budget adding an extra 120mm fan (UPDATED 3X) 10/4/2019 9:57:43 AM

Pros: -Cheap Price for a dual tower cooler
-Big, with a cool design
-Quite... seriously, the fan is silent
-Cools a eight core Ryzen 1700 at 100% load
-You can easily add 120mm fans to the front and back for real Extreme Performance

Cons: -Contact plate doesn't completely cover the Ryzen AM4 CPU... After looking at a de-lidded Ryzen CPU, I was able to confirm it does cover all the important bits though
-The fan in the middle isn't very strong, so if your interested in aggressive overclocking with a Ryzen eight core cpu this needs more air going though it.
-I didn't like the mounting process for this heatsink... Look up the youtube installation video if your curious.
-With this coolers fan at 100% it seems about equal to the wraith prism stock cooler I got with my Ryzen 1700... so unless you are adding fans to the front or back, this doesn't make sense for Ryzen.

Overall Review: In a nutshell, this is a cheap air cooler with the potential for high-end cooling. It's a good fundamental design and it's easy to add more or better fans to this thing. I purchased it as a cheap alternative to the Scythe Kuma 2 to fit in a 4U server case.

UPDATE: This heatsink rocks with extra 120mm fans! Using a coat hanger and pliers I made simple brackets so the fans could hang on both sides. Without the extra fans this thing hits it's limit with a Rzyen 1700 at 3.7 ghz and 1.20 volts.

---

On my first try I didn't mount this thing correctly and was getting lousy results. The mounting process for AM4 with the brackets, screws and torsion bar was annoying, but gets the results when you do it right. Although this cooler is dated, it's still a solid design.

If you are putting this on a Ryzen, be sure to watch the youtube installation video... and make sure the fan is facing the right way when you slide it back in.

WOW what a difference 6/26/2019 11:39:54 PM

Overall Review: I have a AMD 6 core and the CPU was running up to 96C. My computer would just shut off. Some of my programs would not load and if the did they would only partially run.

I got the Arcitc fan and heatsink and it just fit into my case. My motherboard had a 3 pin fan connector and the fan is a 4 pin but the three pinns run it fine just lost the fan RPM gauge. No problem

Now my CPU runs at around 30C and all my programs run great. Thanks.

works as told 5/21/2019 12:35:42 PM

Pros: Running on Ryzen 2700x at 60s could be slightly colder but is fine with the one fan it does have. doing 3d work.

Cons: Huge stack and with the wrong case you can not use practical

Overall Review: it beat the manufacturer cooler.

Good Cooler at a Great Price 2/2/2019 10:59:03 AM

Pros: Great price
Outstanding performance

Cons: Proprietary fan install mount
Included PWM fan is lackluster
Defect on coldplate (correctable with a file)
Cooler mounting requires AMD stock cooler brackets

Overall Review: If youre looking for a cheap cooler that still performs well this is it
On the cooler i got there was a small nub of copper sticking out. Cant imagine it was part of the design as it keeps the coldplate from seating flush on the IHS of the CPU but a few light passes with a file and everything was dandy
You will need to still have the stock brackets from the original AMD cooler to mount this. i would prefer they designed it so it mounted to the motherboard lugs.
The included fan doesnt push much air, its enough if youre not overclocking but then again if youre not overclocking you might as well use the stock cooler that came with your CPU
I would rather they designed the fan mount to be able to accommodate a standard PWM fan. I personaly dont mind my rig looking a bit ghetto-fabulous so a couple zip-ties and i got another one in there
Ive got sub 30c idle temps and 45c under load with this cooler all while virtually silent. For $33 its hard to beat that.

Cooling is worth a little effort 1/4/2019 5:49:12 PM

Pros: I saw a review from a guy running a Ryzen 5 1600x ... I'm thinking he may have 'forgotten' the 20C offset that AMD stupidly added to those 95W chips ... because I did the same thing. At idle, the best I got was about 48C ... which, with the offset (or if you use 'AMD Ryzen Master' software) ... means about 28C. So - our "Xtreme Rev.2" can get the Ryzen5 down to virtually the same level as the motherboard (this on an ASRock AB 350, not running the on-board video).

The aforementioned system is in a Cooler Master HAF-912 case. I mention this because the top-rear fan didn't work when I put the system together. This cooler is designed to push the air toward the back of the case ... (the centrally located cooler-fan is reversible)* ... where a well-positioned functional case fan should try to immediately push the cpu-warmed air outside the system. Without correctly moving air (inside the case) the Case/MB temperatures will go up (duh) ... and correspondingly the CPU. Under properly designed conditions, this cooler works admirably for the price. (If I wanted more cooling, frankly, I'd get a water-cooler).

Both of the AMD systems I put these in (other uses an FX-8350) perform about the same.

Price - I got it for $31.13

Quiet ... full speed is audible but not loud ... mostly (in described systems) silent.

Cons: It's big, in all dimensions ... L x W x H. Height may exclude some cases. Keep the other dimensions in mind when deciding in which order system components are assembled.

(With AMD's) ... how the metal clips (and much smaller, apparently stainless) screws, attach the cooler to the cpu/socket is not obvious. Furthermore, fitting those clips over the socket's 'ear's', and then tightening the screws to firmly down, requires some patience and a fairly good quality Phillips screw driver (# 0 - 1 ?) with adequate neck-length. ** see method under other/optional below. It's actually easy when you get used to it ... just not a method that's been commonly been used.

Once the cooler is attached, keep in mind that those two ears are holding the the very large cooler onto the CPU ... in/across one plane/direction. 'Rocking' along that plane would seem natural. So ... I would take great care in physically moving AMD systems with this cooler installed. (If some engineer's that have done the math/analysis on this attachment method want to contradict me, I'd feel relieved). As I reached into these systems, attaching fan plugs etc ... I got a little nervous 'bumping it'. Also, for the engineers, the clips (they call 'Lugs') appear to made of spring steel. (That's not a bad thing). But, it's tough to sell me on the concept that it's totally locked to the socket's strength ... when that flexibility seems like part of the design.

The more recent one of these I purchased had pre-applied (MX-2) thermal paste. I put the cooler on the cpu (as is/was) ... the resulting temperature was only 1C above the second time I put the cooler on with - with Arctic Silver 5. The MX-2 (didn't know what it was when I put it on) looked like it was raked on (mini rock garden style). The Arctic 5 was applied (properly IMO) with a minimal amount smeared as evenly as possible. If I get another one of these, I'll probably try to smear the pre-applied stuff a little ... but it seemed a little stiff ? I like to apply paste minimally to the CPU (not heat-sink) ... in this case, a Ryzen5 is bigger than the copper contacting surface ... so, my preferred method wouldn't be the best idea. FYI, the really hot core/heat portions of the Ryzen chip are toward the middle. There will be about 1/8" of exposed Ryzen/chip extending out from the Xtreme Rev.2's copper base.

I've read that the fan is not replaceable, other than with Arctic's replacement part# ... looks like a regular 80mm fan to me (custom circular edge fitting downward). I checked, when I bought my first one ... you can get the part ... in in a pinch, I'd bet you could fit something in there temporarily.

Overall Review: * Only 95% sure it's reversible (not taking the time to confirm) ... the way the AMD socket 'ears' are positioned on the MB, the Xtreme Rev.2 has to fit such that the CPU fan will either blow internally, or out (properly) - toward the back of the case.

** When putting this into an AMD system ... the CPU fan should be removed (be patient & careful, it 'clips' in & out) ... then attach the 'lugs' with the screws (as shown in the #1 image for AMD sockets) ... about 2 &1/2 screw turns IMO. The lugs will then be 'dangling' as you bring the cooler down onto the socket. Getting the first lug over an ear shouldn't take any force ... the second 'lug' may take a little force .... finger tip should do. (Which is good, because their ain't much room to work).

nice cooler 12/9/2018 10:42:59 PM

Pros: Big Block,
equipped with necessary mounting parts

Cons: Lose parts, especially the 2 X-shape plastic parts at the side that fix the fan
the "already-applied" thermal pasts sound old and semi-soild ( clean it and replace it with fresh one before use )
