Cons Read the online reviews and do your research before buying this product. Buyer beware - NCIX accepts exchange only. Cooling with an AMD 5000+ black edition was completely inadequate. 40+ C idle and 60+ C under load. Very difficult to install correctly. 4 contact points with no spring mounted screws makes for difficulty in distributing the pressure correctly. This was a common flaw noted in the reviews, but I thought I could do a better job installing it. Don't make my mistake. I replaced this with a ruby orb in my Lanbox lite. The ruby orb fits perfectly with room to spare, was a dream to install, is even more quiet, and cut my CPU temperature in HALF! I guess you get what you pay for.
Summary Difficult to install, very poor cooling performance, cheap look and feel, high pitched buzzing sound. I wouldn't trust my CPU to this cooler for any length of time.
Summary I purchased this to fit my AM2 motherboard and AMD 5000+ Black edition cpu. I have not pushed the limits yet of overclocking to test the function but it is very quiet for typcial use. Small form factor and price matched to $15.37 were bonuses
Cons not as good cooling as regular sized arctic freezer 64
Summary decent cooler that's comparable to stock amd cooler, that's just the right size for an HTPC or mini case. I've read reviews that lapping the base of the heatsink can improve cooling performance by 10+ degrees, since the base is uneven out of the box.
Ultra high performance dual fan AMD CPU cooler for low profile PC The design of Freezer 64 LP ultra high performance dual fan achieves the ultimate cooling effect that dramatically cools the AMD CPU even inside a tiny chassis. Freezer 64 LP’s 2 vertical cooling fans draw a large amount of cold air from both sides that cool the CPU fast and effectively. 3 copper heat pipes directly connected from the CPU core transfer heat out of the core rapidly.
Dual Fan Cooling
3 Heat Pipes
Special Design for Low Profile PC Case
Advanced 4 Directions Ventilation for Chipset and Voltage Regulators
Patented Fan Design
6 Years Warranty
Additionally the design of the Freezer 64 LP cools the surrounding chipset and voltage regulators and operates at just 1/3 of the noise level as the stock cooler and this even under heavy loading. Freezer 64 LP definitely gives the ideal cooling solution for high performance low profile HTPC applications.
