First impressions are it's a very big item, though despite all that metal, it's also very light-weight. It will not cause any problems to full sized tower cases or strain on the motherboard, but beware: due to it's size it will only fit inside full sized ATX cases. If you only have a mini-ATX case, this cooler will not fit inside. It comes pre-supplied with it's own thermal paste, but I decided to remove that and use my own. I also cannibalized the stock CPU fan and turned it in to a case fan to help with the air flow. When I first booted up the PC, the CPU temp was at it's lowest it's ever been at only 6 degrees Celsius, and settling down about 5 minutes later around 15 degrees. Very good.
Next I played some demanding games, S.T.A.L.K.E.R Clear Sky, and GTA 4. Both these games pushed my CPU's temperature up to the 60's and 70's with the old stock fan, but using this cooler the highest the temperature the CPU got to was only 29 degrees and this was a good hours worth of playing on each game and with all the graphics settings maxed out at a screen size of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. The log on the freeware program CoreTemp proved this.
It took a bit of effort getting the cooler fitted and the fan cable connected.Read more ›
Fitting was a breeze. Take the fan off and fit the fittings as per instructions, at most it will take any experienced computer tech less than 10 minutes to fit. Just watch the thermal compound, it is grease so will get everywhere if you are not careful. All you need is a slightly longer than normal Phillips screw driver to screw the retaining clip to fittings. Very easy to do (TIP- magnetize the end of you screw driver, makes it easy to pick up screws and on the AMD fittings start the screws off by hand (1 turn to get it in position). Screw it down tight once in, with the Intel fitting as far as you can, but bear in mind don't be ham fisted and really screw it hard, take your time. Once it is down tight, refit the 120mm fan and pull the cable through the bottom and hold it tight - this stops a loose bit of cable hitting fan blades and this is the fiddly bit, attaching the fan socket to the motherboard.Read more ›
The improvement I've seen is absolutely amazing. I've now overclocked my little processor because this has given such amazing improvement. So far I've only been able to push it to 3.7GHz from the stock 3, but that's not due to temperature, just my generally noobiness in overclocking. I am confident that with this cooler I could get past 4.0GHz. I'd certainly recommend this for anyone looking to get an old processor working faster.
Super easy installation, the instruction are minimal (just diagrams), but they suffice. I can't say how easy it would be for AMD set ups, but for intel it is extremely simple. It comes with pre-applied thermal paste, which seemed well applied and is doing an amazing job.
The noise isn't an issue at all for me, I haven't noticed any increase over the stock fan.
Just note, it is quite big. The height shouldn't be an issue for anyone, but it's very wide, so if you don't have low-profile RAM you might have an issue.
Difference in temperature:
[using Prime to get to full load and Core Temp to measure temperature]
Idle - 33*C
Full load (3GHz) - ~60*C
Full load (OC) - Not possible, too high heat.
Arctic Cooling Freezer:
Idle - 33*C
Full load (3GHz) - 35*C
Full load (oCd to 3.7GHz) - 42*C
I didn't even have to remove the GPU or RAM to install it myself. I've set the fan on turbo in the bios & I can't hear it.
Thermals are great! tomb raider on ultra, 44c cpu. My GPU is cooler as well I guess there is less residual heat in the system now & I didn't mention that I'm currently running a 12% overclock on my CPU to 4.72ghz and the crashes that I was getting at that level have eliminated so I'm going to keep pushing to see how far I can overclock and maybe get to 5ghz.
After some testing I found I could attain 4.89ghz with a vCore of 1.404 and stay within recommended thermal limits whilst gaming.
To attain 4.Read more ›
