ARCTIC Freezer A30 Extreme CPU Cooler - AMD, 320W Ultimate Cooling Power, Direct-Touch

5 out of 5 eggs much better than stock cooler 06/08/2013

This review is from: ARCTIC Freezer A30 Extreme CPU Cooler - AMD, 320W Ultimate Cooling Power, Direct-Touch

Pros: inexpensive, was very easy to install on my MSI Am3+ MB. Took me about 10 minutes total with a few interruptions. Went from 58* C under load with stock cooler to 36* C with Arctic Cooler 30. Used on a fx 6300 cpu

Cons: big, had to move memory to second & fourth row instead of first & third. Still was very close to memory in second row. This might not work on all MB's or fit in all cases. Need a little over 6" from cpu to side of case

Other Thoughts: finally decided to have fan on opposite side of memory, so could have left memory alone. Nice that you can change direction of heatsink to fit better in different situations. Can't hear this over my other case fans. No problem fitting in a Corsair carbide 500r case. Very easy install for me, didn't have to take MB out of case.

Pros: At the time it was the best price for a 7850. Seems pretty well made. Had no issues installing this card. Plays all the games kids have with no problems. They play Assassins Creed III, Grand Theft Auto IV, Bioshock, Tomb raider, Far Cry, Half-life 2, mostly steam games with no problems.

Cons: price seems to be going down....

Other Thoughts: Fit in my Rosewill Blackbone case, had to move hd. Really fit well in my Corsair 500r case with lots of room to spare. So far very happy with this upgrade.

Pros: Very fast, I have worked with i5s and I can't see any differences in the performance. Very nice upgrade from a 2.9ghz rana tri-core. I think this is the best bang for the buck cpu right now for most people.

Cons: no cons unless I wanted to overclock, then I would definitely have to get a better cpu cooler.

Other Thoughts: Kids play some of the newest games and love this along with the Radeon hd 7850 I upgraded it with. I think it plays as well as any cpu out there, only benchmarks can really see the differences.
