Rated 4 out of 5 by Gempio I was the unlucky guy... Amazing Heatsink though!
Had this fan for a while now but I encountered a big problem. The problem is... The fan is broken and the heatsink is the only thing supporting the CPU but guess what? The heatsink is so big it does a fair job at keeping the CPU cold anyway! that is just pure awesome!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by snakepliskin83 Great basic fan
This fan is very quiet and keeps the CPU very cool for not a silly price or fuss of water cooling.
However the fan is bigger than I expected, even on my ASUS ATX board it still takes up a big amount of space and the fan protector slightly pushes on to the RAM. So watch out for that.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skorpion1974 Does the Job, Well
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.
