    Im considering getting one of these as I want to get my Athlon 3700+ to 2.8Ghz and keep the temps well below 60c, is this Cooler any good - Arctic Freezer 64 Pro? i currently have stock cooling and its at 2.53ghz

    I've just replaced my Opty 146 retail HSF with the Artic pro because they were on special offer. TBH, I was a little disappointed as it has only dropped my temps by 1-2 degrees (there's nothing wrong with the fit)

    Maybe it takes a while to 'bed in' but I'm starting to think it wasa bit of a waste of money and effort.

    I'm currently getting 46C Idle rising to 51C after an hour running Prime

    Oh, and it hasn't improved my overclock at all - 2.75GHz max before and after :mad:

    You could try the Zalman 9500 Areo Fan... really quiet and great temps too.

    I'm really torn between getting one of these, as i've seen just as many bad comments as i've seen good... ATM my system hits 55c under full load with prime95, am hoping that the freeze64 pro would lower the temp significantly... :rolleyes:

    I used to get the same temps as you under load it's decreased my temp by about 10C.

    Athlon 64 3200+ @ 2.5ghz @ 1.55v

    Room Temp 21c
    Case temp 27c
    CPU Idle 32c
    CPU full load 36c

    Arctic freezer pro ;) , only been in there a day or so, not had time for the thermal paste to set in properly.

    If you doubt how good this thing is... heres a screenshot of me running it passively
    [​IMG]
    I let it run for another 10 minutes and it went to 42c

    Ignore the voltages they are way out :p
