- Enter your model number to make sure this fits.
- The unique heatsink design, consisting of 102 fins and 4 double-sided heatpipes offers a cooling performance far beyond the stock cooler. It can cool down CPUs with a heat dissipation of up to 160 Watts.
- The central-mounted 120 mm fan with low noise impeller and a patented fan holder ensures quiet operation. Controlled by PWM, the fan runs between 800 and 1,500 RPM and runs silently even at full speed.
- The unique mounting system via push pins offers excellent stability and is applicable within a few minutes. The pre-applied ARCTIC MX-2 thermal compound makes the installation a quick and clean process.
- With the flexible mounting design, Freezer XTREME Rev.2 is compatible with Intel Socket 1366, 1150, 1151, 1155, 1156, 775 as well as AMD Socket FM1, FM2, AM3+, AM3, AM2+, AM2, 939 and 754.

I did my research and decided to buy this to replace the stock heatsink/fan that came with my Core 2 Duo 2.4Ghz processor.
It was relatively easy to install, much easier than the stock heatsink. I did not have to remove the motherboard, which was the main reason I bought this particular CPU cooler. The four little black nubs were a little painful on my fingers as I pushed them into my motherboard to install the mounting bracket. It is necessary to remove the fan to screw the heatsink into the mounting bracket (for Intel CPUs, not sure for AMD CPUs). The fan comes off and goes back on fairly easily. After using the two screws to mount the heatsink to the mounting bracket, I put the fan back on and connected the 4-pin power connector to the mobo.
I used the thermal compound that was already applied to the heatsink. Some people clean it off and apply Arctic Silver 5 thermal compound, but I don't think it's necessary and mostly a waste of time. I did need to clean the previous thermal compound from the top of the CPU by wiping it with some rubbing alcohol on pieces of cotton. I have the Antec 900 case which has a 200mm fan on top of it. I pointed the fan on this CPU cooler directly at that huge fan.
The cooling is fantastic.Read more ›
I have an Intel Q6600 Quad Core @ 2.4 ghz, with a EVGA GTX 570 1.5G, 8 G of DDR-2 RAM, Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit. Not the best build, but nonetheless has ran both game fine on the highest settings. My case is a Xeon Mid size case (not the best cooling case).
When I started monitoring the temps on the CPU, using Core Temp and Speed Fan (just to have the 2nd opinion), I noticed that at idle , my pc was running at 40-50 degree celsius. On full load with Either Battlefield 3 or Pripyat, the load temps were getting up to the 75-83ish range which is too high in my opinion.
After reading the reviews for the Arctic Cooler 7 Pro Rev 2, I decided it was time to try to bring my temps down.Before buying, I did try the arctic silver 5 on my heatsink, installed it, and temps dropped about maybe 2 degrees per core. NOTE: I cleaned everything , the cpu, heatsink properly etc. and still only managed a slight drop in temps.
A day after I received the Arctic Cooler 7 Pro Rev 2 from Amazon, I shut down my pc and let it cool for about an hour, and proceeded to remove/clean everything related to the old heatsink.
Installation was fairly simple, and did not have problems with the 'weak' pins as others have noted. The Instructions are very self explanatory for someone that knows what to expect as far as knowing the difference between socket 775 etc. But for a first timer, yes the instructions could be a little more detailed, but changing a cooler is not exactly what an average pc owner does as this falls more in the realm of geek/repair/builder types.Read more ›
- Took less than 15 minutes. It's as simple as this: remove the stock heat sink and fan, use appropriate mounting hardware for Intel or AMD products (both are included in package), seat the heat sink onto the processor, tighten TWO screws, attach the fan and plug it in, close the case and get back to work/games.
- Important thing: When you are seating the heat sink onto the processor there are two things to be sure of. First: wipe off any bonding residue from the processor that might have been there from the previous heat sink. Make sure it's absolutely clean. Second: when you seat the new heat sink the bonding material will immediately connect so be absolutely sure you are setting it onto the processor correctly so you don't have to move it around. You can do this by lining up the screw holes.
- Installation requires exactly ONE tool - a phillips screwdriver. There are only two screws to tighten (if you use the Intel set). The rest of the mounting hardware is done with the included snaps and you won't need anything more than your fingers to install it.
- Here is the highlight. With the stock fan I was getting an average core temperature on an Intel Core i7-920 of around 52C. With this heat sink that temp immediately dropped to 39C-41C on average. That's 10 degrees cooler for 15 minutes of your time and not a lot of money. If you are planning to overclock or do high performance computing, those 10 degrees make a big difference.
- I have already been able to overclock the system, put it through hard performance testing with BOINC, and the temperature has never gone above 72C (with the stock heat sink this same test sent the temperature to 85C-91C).
- Quiet. Very, very quiet.Read more ›
