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

Pros: I'm using this on an i5-2500K OC'd to 4.2GHz. With OCCT running the small data set for more heat, it was reaching 80*C at 100% with the stock cooler. With the Freezer 7 it's at 60*C. None of my apps actually peg the CPU at 100%, so in everyday use it's even lower. We'll see how it does at 4.5GHz.

Quieter than stock cooler, both idling and at full speed.

Pre-applied thermal compound.

Cons: The Intel mounting bracket is simple but fiddly. You need three hands to simultaneously guide the cooler and the two screws into the correct positions, or a pair of forceps to move the screw that you couldn't hold into the bracket threads.

Three of the six pipes are shiny copper while the other three look corroded. I thought this was a defect, but even the newegg photos show it. It still looks cheesy.

CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X2048-6400C4DHX

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Didn't catch on fire.


Cons: One stick was DOA, which (according to newegg) made me ineligible for the rebate. The memory was just barely worth it with the rebate; without it there was no point at all. True to form, the rebate was denied. I'll never buy anything branded Corsair again.

Other Thoughts: Massive heatsinks allow a DOA stick to make a much better paperweight.

Intel Pentium E5200 Wolfdale Dual-Core 2.5 GHz LGA 775 65W BX80571E5200 Desktop Processor

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Amazing bang for the buck. I've bought 2 in the last 4 months and they rock.

Cons: They're not still $65?

Other Thoughts: I was all set to get an aftermarket cooler when I saw a review that said the stock HSF was very quiet and did a decent job of cooling. It's great in my HTPC, undervolted to about 7V.
