Will a Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro CPU Cooler fit an am2 mobo socket?
nope, IIRC AM2 uses a diferent clip
As far as I know, no. I also checked on Arctic Cooling's website and there is no mention of AM2 anywhere.
Thanks guys, are there any alternatives to the zalman am2 socket cooler? at 30 quid its a bit steep
The stock cooler
The Freezer 64 Pro will fit the AM2 Socket, as it's Socket 940, which is stated on the Artic Cooling site.
940 is not AM2 - I asked this Q a while ago and the 'missing' pins are in a different position
The Freezer 64 Pro should fit AM2. Madshrimps did a list of which coolers will and will not fit AM2. Here it is.
The stock AM2 cooler is like a hairdrier. Tried to buy a quiet rig. Got an Antec Sonata II, mobo with no onboard fan and a X1800 XT. Was expecting the X1800 XT to be the main noise polluter but it's nearly always silent. All I keep hearing is the AM2 cooler taking off when I start a game. Has anyone found a decent quiet AM2 cooler for around £15 yet?
Well according to the post above you the freezer 64 pro... or just buy a 120mm akasa amber and mount it over the cpu heatsink
is the freezer pro 64 pretty quiet then?
set to 80% with speedfan and it is silent
