Rated 5 out of 5 by spider Great cooler at a sensible price
Used these coolers many times, my latest build was a new gaming rig / HTPC - i7 4770K CPU, no issues fitting it. Very quiet, hardly audible in my front room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by blcollier Poor factory quality control
I was going mad when this cooler arrived as the fan just refused to turn; it would twitch a little bit when powered up but would not spin properly.
If this happens to you then turn the machine off and take the fan off the heatsink - there are two plastic clips on either side. See if you can pull the fan blades free from the motor - don't force it, if you've go the same issue then the fan blades and spindle will easily slide out. Put the metal rod back into the motor and push it until it clicks - it shouldn't take much force and it should firmly click into place.
If you're not sure about doing this then just send it back, but I saw this solution posted on a forum by someone who had the same issue and it worked perfectly; fan now spins up every time without fail.

I built a new System and decided to stick with Air Cooling as have had never had any problems using this method and as the PC is on pretty much all day with workloads from Photo/Video editing to Playing Games I never use the stock coolers even with out Overclocking so wanted one to replace my OCZ Vendetta 2 which I have had for years, I didn't want one that was as big either so looking at the Arctic Freezer 7 went for that, it is alot smaller and is very quiet too. Installation is very easy and can be done even when fitting inside the case, the fact that most coolers also now come pre paste applied makes everything so much easier and saves time. worth the money and worth upgrading to if your coming from a stock cooler.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Martin671 Pretty Cool Product
This item is very effective in keeping my Intel Core i7 processor running cool, even when driving it hard. It is more efficient than the stock cooler and runs almost silently. A bargain for the price and relatively easy to fit straight out the box, with pre-applied thermal compound.
It stands tall so check it fits into your case!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gazimoff Does the job, but protrudes extensively
The cooler comes in two pieces - a frame that clips into the motherboard, and the cooler that bolts on top. As a result, it's very easy to install and is great for situations where your PC case doesn't have a cutout underneath the motherboard tray.
The cooling fan is held in place by a plastic cage, which unfortunately protrudes over the first DIMM slot. I wouldn't recommend this for a micro-ATX or ITX build.

Rated 5 out of 5 by theguywhoboughtit Cheap and easy
Pros: Cheap, very easy install once you figure out what you need to do. Kit for AMD and Intel
Cons: Very poor instructions
Overall great value for money and significantly decreased the volume of the craptastic jet turbine volume of the stock AMD fan. Recommended for AMD, Intel came with a pretty good fan already so I don't know that this would be a big upgrade for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SamT Really good
For a first build, I am really happy with this product. The installation was a bit stressful, but I'd put that down to it being my first build. Once in position, it screwed in fine! Runs really quietly (Even when gamng) and I have no complaints.
