What customers say about "Size & Weight"
ARCTIC Freezer Xtreme Rev.2 Twin-Tower Heatsink CPU Cooler
  • Compact size but isn't recommenced for very small cases.
  • Build is of low quality, but who cares if it serves the purpose for which it has been built.
  • The only reason for the 4 star is because of the size! It's not much wider than many coolers so I cant see there being too much of an issue fitting onto any specific motherboard.
  • The size of half a bag of sugar , its BIG !. So check the specs and the space you have available - micro atx case need not apply.
  • The disadvantage is its size. It filled the entire room inside of my minitower. Very tiny disadantage is its bearing.
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus CPU Cooler
  • Excellent cooling. Infinitely better than the stock Intel cooler. Also great size.
  • Very compact efficient cooler. Great CPU cooler.
  • The sheer size and weight is just amazing.
  • This is the best weight/size/price performer you can get for any CPU.
  • It's very difficult to mount this beast due to its size, weight, and method of installation.

What customers say about "Features"
ARCTIC Freezer Xtreme Rev.2 Twin-Tower Heatsink CPU Cooler
  • Silent and good as advertised, temperatures in the high 30's. Very Satisfied.
  • Many features like twin towers and complete copper plate for CPU contact make it work well. Doesn't look the best, though you might prefer a design in which you cant see the fan.
  • This was replacement for my 5 years old ARCTIC Freezer 13 that had broken fun speed monitor. It is really quite. I like it.
  • With default bios setting, motherboard gives an error message "CPU fan error please press F1 to setup" during booting time because fan only starts running after processor gets some heat.
  • If you have already purchased this fan, consider replacing the fan that spins at low RPM instead of 0 RPM in initial stage to protect your CPU and to enable error message if CPU fan fails to run.
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus CPU Cooler
  • The fan mounting brackets are tool-less, and comes off easy enough.
  • The mounting bracket is very sturdy metal, it doesn't use the cheap plastic clips that the stock cooler came with.
  • It is very customizable in terms of fan placement.
  • It runs very quiet and seems to be working great so far.
  • Cools very well. Easy install. Great cooling for the price.
