5.0 out of 5 stars Massive and well worth the effort 20 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase
The Artic Cooler i30 was larger than I expected - it's massive, so make sure you have a wide enough case before you buy one.

Fitting it is a bit fiddly and time consuming - best done with the motherboard out of the case on the bench. It has to be screwed to a backplate which needs to be fitted using some small plastic stand-off pillars, and some tiny sticky plastic rings, so take your time with this.

Once it's on though it's great. My i5-3470 runs on idle at about 30C in air temps of about 20C and case temp around 25C. When I run Prime95 to stress all four cores for an hour or more the processor never gets above about 50C-55C. As soon as you stop Prime95 and the processor load reduces the temperature falls back to near ambient in no more than a few seconds.

One word of caution though - this comes with a tube of Arctic Cooling MX4 thermal paste, and an instruction diagram that shows you putting down 4 lines of paste on the 4 heat pipe bases. But the tube contains only 0.5cm3 of paste - it you follow the diagram exactly you will find there is not enough paste in the tube to do more than 2.5 lines! So make sure when you put this on you make the lines VERY thin indeed. You can always put extra on when you've finished if you have any spare.

Despite it having a large fan it is not silent, but it is very quiet, and I can't hear it over the sound of my 20cm case fan anyway.

My overall impression - it's a big beast that does a great job very quietly and miles better than the stock fans that come with Intel processors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite easy to install and great temperature. 7 July 2012
Verified Purchase
I used the MX-4 that came with it even though I had just bought AS5 (also I put the amount of paste that said on the instructions, even though it seemed way to much from experience, I basically emptied the syringe they provided) and I Over-clocked the i5-3570k 3.4Ghz I have to 4.5Ghz with only slight voltage increase to 1.22vcore.

The temperatures after one hour of stress testing did not go over 63*C which means I could get a lot more but I don't have time to OC to the max.

Amazing Cooler. I would not spend more then this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Its big 23 July 2013
Verified Purchase
Was hoping it would be smaller but it fit in my zalman z9 plus midi. Only cold air comes out of my pc even when its 29'C inside with 3570k CPU. Had to check a video online about how to install it, i felt instructions were lacking a little.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent cooling 19 May 2012
By Wags
I bought one of these for a new build with an Intel 3570k Ivybridge processor. This is a very large and hefty cooler, but has a sturdy and straightforward mounting system. Be warned though, the fan obscures one of the RAM sockets if you have it in a conventional ATX arrangement with air flowing from the front of the case. I put this in a Corsair Carbide 500R case and it fits with about 1cm to spare from the side fan, which is a relief. It is whisper quiet and keeps my i3570k very cool indeed. Recommended as long as you don't want to populate all the RAM sockets!! A steal at the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Giant but very effective! 29 Jan 2013
By Liv. E
Verified Purchase
First things first make sure that this thing will fit in your PC because it is huge, I forgot to check but luckily it fit my PC just fine (after I took a side fan out anyway).

Provided this will fit it is amazing. Fitting it is easy and straight forward (though a little bit of a faff because you will most likely need to remove the motherboard to fit it).

My old CPU temps min- 24'C max- 58'C
NEW CPU temps min- 13'C max- 38'C

I use my PC for gaming and on the highest settings on everything I can run all the games without heat getting high, brand new games don't give my CPU heat greif at all now!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Cooler 10 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase
Great cooler coped with my overclocked i5 well.Fitting fairly easy only one fly in the ointment found the little sticky rings that hold the spacers to the motherboard almost impossible to use. This needs to be addresed apart from that can't fault it.So four stars

Amazing quality & looking cooler! Easy to install, quiet and Iv'e never seen my Intel i5 quad core 4670k go above 35deg C (currently 29deg C as I'm writing this)

This will block one of your RAM slots but this does not affect most people as two cars of RAM is enough.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great cooling, great value! 7 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
It's great value, includes everything you need, decent thermal paste from their line up, clips, screws, bots etc, cooling is really good.
But.. here is the problem, on my mother board, Asus Z87 Pro, memory clearance is an issue after the first set of dimms. If you dont intend to install a second set, then it just great, 5 stars, but if you intend to install a full set of dims, it's probably avoided or buy and replace it later.

Remember the price is great. Performance is great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Noticed the difference
upgraded this from the stock cooler, and i can notice a difference in temperature, the unit however is massive and you will need low profile memory if you want to fit it all in... Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor mounting design
The unit is so large it covers a memory slot. I had measured this before I ordered but did not expect the unit to be offset form the chip. Makes no sense. Read more
