To start with the temps I'm getting compared to the stock cooler are not bad, about 8c cooler on full load over 30min, On idle a drop of about 10c which I'm pleased with. The fan is a lot quieter than the AMD stock cooler fan, but is not silent, It's a gentle hmmmm in the background on idle. As you've seen in the video, orientation of where the fan blows on a AMD setup is tricky, blow up towards the PSU or blow down towards the graphics card. I installed blowing down to start with, this was ok but increased temps a bit understandably on my graphics card, so remounted blowing up towards the PSU, the problem was, that the hot air caused the PSU's fan to cut into full speed as it thought it was over heating, which is rather loud. If you have a top mounted exhaust fan this wont be a problem I suspect, but for me, its back to blowing air down again. Overall I think it was a good buy, cools my Phenom II 955 slightly overclocked, better than the stock, looks great in the case if you have a clear side, with an AMD setup there is a chance you might loose one of you're memory slots (its very tight on mine), worth measuring up. The only thing to really criticise is the orientation of the fan as mentioned earlier. The reason its getting 4 stars and not 5.
Apologies if the video has to many edits or jumps around, had to reduce in size so could upload and it not taking a week to do so.......
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.
Let me say at this point that this cooler is quite big, far bigger than the cooler I removed. At first I was a bit concerned it wouldn't fit in my full sized case, but it fits well, just. It really is a bit of a monster.
Fitting the cooler was far easier than I thought it would be. I advise you to go onto youtube and put in "fitting a the arctic cooling freezer 7 pro" and you will find several videos available. I looked at three and one was particularly useful as it explained every step simply - I am a simple minded soul. Indeed it took less than 20 minutes to remove my old cooler, clean the CPU of the paste and installing the new cooler - the Arctic even comes with the paste already applied, brilliant.
Once fitted, I closed the computer and switched on, but there was a problem, so I left it for a while and came back later to discover that windows (7) would not boot up. Blast I thought, not this. So I switched off and tried again and, "Hey Presto" it all booted perfectly, problem solved.
In use the cooler is a lot quieter than the standard one I replaced, indeed the whole computer is quieter even when I am getting the most out of my CPU.
At this price it is a 'no brainer' - just make sure your computer case is a large one, otherwise you may have problems fitting it in. For me this is perfect for my almost three year old desktop.
Please note that on AMD motherboards this cooler can only be mounted in 2 directions - with the cooler fan either pointing towards the top of the case or the bottom. On Intel motherboards the cooler can be mounted in all 4 directions.
The only problem I had - and this is due to the motherboard/memory type I use - is that the cooler half covered my DDR3 memory module 1 slot. If the cooler could be mounted in all 4 directions this would not be an issue - but as it the broadest part of the cooler comes very close to the first memory slot on my motherboard. I had to move my memory sticks to modules 3 and 4 as the heat spreader on my DDR3 sticks wouldn't fit with the cooler. No big deal to me because I'm only running on 4GB but might be to some people. In case your wondering I'm using 'Kingston 1600Mz DDR3 NonECC DIMM K2' memory sticks.
All in all it's a good cooler.

Very impressed with this.
I upgraded my AMD Athlon dual core to a quad, and using the stock fan it just hit the maximum temperature and slowed down (70c). Read more
