Excellent cooler - take care when fitting,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ARTIC Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 CPU Cooler (Personal Computers)
My second, both fitted to a Gigabyte GA-H55M-UD2H, socket 1156, motherboards. The instructions are awful - but luckily I found an excellent YouTube video showing how to fit this exact cooler. Both base and the cooler are very easy to fit once you get the knack of removing the fan in order to screw the cooler onto the base. So much easier than the older push-and-click coolers where I always worried I'd crack the motherboard.
However, with the fan removed, don't rush screwing the cooler onto its base - it's rather easy to fit the cooler the wrong way round (fan should blow through, towards the case's rear exhaust fan). It cools very well, it's almost silent, the pre-applied thermal compound saves time and money, it's maybe a bit close to the RAM on this board but OK and it's excellent value for money.
