just finished installing and tested it and i'm really impressed with the performance!
The test was done using Prime95's full stress test, waiting 4 minutes for the CPU/Core Temp Readings.
CPU: intel Core i5 760 2.8Ghz @ 2.8Ghz
With Intel Stock Cooler:
no load: CPU temp - 50 C
Core Temp(avg) - 56 C
Full Load: CPU temp - 67 C
Core Temp (avg) - 95 C
With Arctic Cooling Freezer 13
No Load: CPU Temp - 40 C
Core Temp (avg) - 36 C
Full Load: CPU Temp - 50 C
Core Temp (avg) - 46 C
I will soon be testing the CPU for overclocking and will let you know the results!
Fitting was problematic inside the case. It was just to fiddly to keep the brackets straight around the retention frame lugs and manipulate the small screw. Unless you get it exactly right, the cooler is just loose (and therefore useless).
After much removal and reapplication of thermal paste, reseating, failing and swearing I bit the bullet and decided to remove the motherboard and mount the cooler outside of the case. It was a success. I could see what I was doing and make fine adjustments. I suspect that this fiddly fitment is not that unusual for 'universal' fitting coolers.
I reckon the temperature with this cooler has dropped about 10 degrees C and it is much quieter than the stock item. Also worth noting, it clears my RAM next to the cooler and fan (2 sticks of Corsair XMS2 DDR2) but only just.
I've overclocked the CPU to a modest 3.5GHz. Idle temperature is 27C, under load with prime95 (large FFT) 49C. Room temperature is 22C. Fan under load spins 1885 rpm producing low hum.
With the AMD mounting, the fan is at the lower edge (near the northbridge) blowing upwards. I have an exhaust fan on the top of the case directly above the cooler (as well as two other exhausts and one input). The warm air exiting this fan certainly is confirmation this cooler is doing it's job.
In conclusion, I think that this cooler is good value for money and does a good job.Read more ›
When doing some burn in test with the stock cooler fitted the core temp could reach a maximum of 80+C, with an idle temp of about 38-40C.
I received the cooler from Amazon after only 3 working days (this was on the free delivery - was expecting to have to wait at least 5).
The first impression you get, is that it is HUGE!! and that there is no way it will fit in the case (it probably wouldn't fit in my case).
Fitting was a little tricky if you follow the instructions, but if you attach the clips loosely to the heatsink first, it is a lot easier.
On AMD systems the heatsink can only be fitted fitted with the fan either blowing down on to your graphics card or up into the PSU / case (if your PSU is on the floor of your case, as is the case with my sons case). Ideally you'd want it blowing out the back of the case. On my sons case there is space for a fan on the top, so this isn't an issue.
There is a couple of mm clearance over 2 slots of RAM (this is with a low profile heatsink on the ram - Kingston 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz HyperX Blu Memory).
I have re-run the burn in tests & the max core temp is now no higher than 50C and an idle temp of 28-30C.
I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS FAN, but cant give it 5 out of 5 because of the issue with positioning the fan as this would not be suitable for all.
Contrary to other reviews, I found this cooler very easy to fit! the push pins are self explanatory and I like the fact that you are able to mount the holding frame first which made life a lot easier than my previous cooler and then simply screw in the heatsink and attach then fan.
I had to look on the internet to find out which way the fan blow to ensure I angled it towards the exhaust fan of my case as there were no instructions on this in the box. (FYI - the fan blows through the heatsink and out -maybe this was obvious, however I've not used an 'upright' cooler before and this is my second ever fitting of any type of cooler!)
Quick note, I chose this cooler due to the size requirement (13.5 cm height) to fit my case. if anyone else has a CiT Vantage case from amazon (red / blue LED one) then I can confirm this fits with about a cm to spare due to the case fans. If you have this kind of case and are thinking about getting a cooler, I wholeheartedly recommend this cooler, I think many others will be too big and as you can see by the performance, this is a great bit of kit.
relavent system specs:
i5 3230 @ 3.3ghz
gigabyte mobo (socket 1155)
(old cooler - AVC's standard intel based cooler)
previous - idle 31c / load (Prime95) 70-75c
Freezer 13 - idle 26c / load (Prime95) 40-45c (using pre-applied paste - I will update if I ever change this)
