re: another reviewers comments on durability - I had no problems installing this cooler. As you can see from the pictures, the fan frame is lightly constructed -- but it's certainly more than strong enough to do its job of supporting the fan. Unless you're a moose and mash down on the obviously slender frame, I don't foresee having any problems. The installation directions are mostly pictures, and one point is somewhat vague -- when installing the hold-down clip, loosen *both* the clip screws all the way till the clips come loose, then tight just enough so the clips don't fall off -- this provides slack to slip the clips under the "hooks" on the CPU socket mounting bracket. Once both the clips have engaged their hooks, tighten the screws, alternating a few turns at a time on each screw, until they're fully tightened, so as to equalize pressure on both sides.
- Extremely quiet operation compared to stock AMD heat sink/fan
- 2-degree celsuis lower CPU temperature than stock cooling solution
- Extremely simple installation on AM2 socket (loosen two screws, attach clips to stock mounting bracket on system board and tighten screws)
The larger fan and lower operating speed no doubt are the biggest reasons this cooler is so much quieter than the stock fan - it runs about 1500 rpm slower than the stock CPU fan after the system has been on for over 30 minutes. Regardeless of the reason, it has satisfied my primary goal - quiet cooling at a low cost.
Overall this CPU cooler is just an excellent value.
I built my PC, but I left the rather noisy stock cooler on that came with my FM2+ socket APU and never thought anymore about it. I'd never had a computer get fried due to overheating, and so far in my life all the stock coolers were adequate.
This time, however, it appeared that an upgrade would be in order. After some research and review reading, I ordered the ARCTIC Alpine 64 GT Rev 2 CPU Cooler and Antec Thermal Grease Compound.
Shipment came in two days via Prime, packaged well, no damage. I carefully removed the old paste from the APU as well as the factory paste on the ARCTIC with rubbing alcohol and applied the aftermarket paste to the heatsink of the ARCTIC cooler and mounted it to the 7850K. It snapped right into place with minimal fuss, very easy, no screw tightening or motherboard removal required in my mini-ATX case.
Temps immediately dropped to 32 C and held under heavy load at 40-42 C. I could always hear the old fan and and when it spun up you could hear it from across the room. Now I have to keep checking the case to see if it's on, as it is very quiet.
Not bad for a total of 12 bucks. I will be getting another one for our home server.
UPDATE 6-25-15: Well our AC went out yesterday and it got up to 90 F inside. The CPU never cracked 50 C...so far so good!
I'm sure this isn't suitable for overclocking, or really anything heavily loaded -- for an AMD Llano HTPC, it's cheap and extremely efective!
Have a great day!

Works great with my Athlon II X3 460. Idle temps are in the low 80's fahrenheit. Under full load it keeps my chip at 120-125 F even on these hot summer days. Read morePublished 7 days ago by M. Schmidt

Replacing the stock cooler that came with the FX-6300. Much, much quieter. Went in no trouble at all. Only issue is that cooler might come out if precaution isn't taken. Read morePublished 12 days ago by Edward R. Galbraith
