What customers say about "Key Specs"
ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro Compact Multi-Compatible Tower CPU Cooler
  • Keeps my CPU just cool enough. Good product.
  • Great cooling and very quiet! Would recommend.
  • The cooling performance is pretty good, easily 5-10 C under my stock Intel HS+fan.
  • It keeps my CPU very cool (i3-4160 ~70C under full load, never peaks 60C while gaming).
  • It's kept my CPU running very cool, no temp problems at all.
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler
  • It's the best air cooling device I've owned, simply incredible performance for the price.
  • Cools processor very well, can achieve between a 10-15 degree temperature drop.
  • The fan itself is removable from the cooling fins so you can switch it to the other side to change the direction if necessary.
  • For quiet air cooling, I don't think you can get much better than this without spending way more.
  • It cools the CPU great and has great airflow through the entire case to help other parts like the RAM.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro Compact Multi-Compatible Tower CPU Cooler
  • The size of the cooler unit is also compatible with more cases than some of the other brands.
  • It fit the smaller sized case. Runs quiet.
  • Just the right size and great performance to boot.
  • Saved my Micro ATX build. Good size.
  • Check size before ordering, some smaller cases can have issues with room.
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler
  • The metal cooling assembly appears to be well constructed, although the fan seems very light duty.
  • I like the larger sized fan and the fact that it hangs over other key parts of the mobo, keeping them much cooler.
  • I thought weight might be an issue however this heatsink is light as a feather.
  • I literally had to change pc cases to accommodate the size.
  • The heatsink is very heavy so the new mount you have to install is made to disperse the weight and not put too much strain on one small spot on the motherboard.

What customers say about "Features"
ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro Compact Multi-Compatible Tower CPU Cooler
  • I was amazed how quiet this thing is.
  • Pre-applied thermal paste. Super quiet. Easy and quick install.
  • The cooler is quiet, very quiet. Would recommend.
  • The replacement unit is very quiet and has given me no troubles.
  • So far my CPU is hanging at 20º C and quiet. Very happy with this purchase and truly believe in Arctic Cooling products!
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler
  • The fan speed is automatically controlled by the system software, depending on how much cooling the CPU needs at the moment.
  • The fan hasn't noticeably raised the noise level in my PC, which is fairly quiet.
  • Copper heat pipes just look cool. The copper pipes definitely made a huge difference.
  • The fan does emit some noise, so I swapped it out for a Noctua fan and again had it them on the lowest settings and i had roughly the same performance, but much quieter.
  • The only problem this has to me is that it has quite a loud fan, a pair of Good headphones is a requirement to drown out the background noise.
