what do u guys think of this cooler. id like to buy it for my x2 3800+ and overclock it a little. ive seen some reviews and it looks very interesting, also the price is great. can i take it to 2400mhz? i have a k8n sli platinum, 7800gt, corsair 2x512mb xms c2pt 2.5-3-3-6 currently at ddr440

I brought that same cooler my temp went from

44c with stock cooler
34c with Artic 64

I love it. Well worth the money.

THIS is better then the zalman 9500?????????

ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 64 Pro Cooling Fan with Heatsink



Thats weird.... a person I talk to alot says it dropped him about 5-6C on average with an already OC'ed processor (an X2 3800+ @ 2.5ghz). I thought the 9500 would drop you like 10C in that situation.

heh


i just bought one a couple of hours ago


-shipping from newegg.com


:D 


i read some reviews -google

and the reviewers said to use the Thermal pad that comes with the Heatsink ,its some special compound they put on for optimal performance

i would have to disagree wusy, i really dont' like how madshrimps tests their hsfs.

in my opinion, for a somewhat consistent result, you at least need a stable heatsource (no CPUs and crappy burn programs). and a industrial temperature monitor and probe (absolutely no shitty mobo sensors)


they also do not provide you with ambient temperatures and case fan setups. they have way too many major variables to narrow down the temperature differences to the HSF

The stock thermal material over arctic silver?
Has anybody done a comparison?
I'm just curious because I'm planning to buy this hsf for my new build.
$6 I can save on Arctic silver is $6 more for my videocard budget.

yeah on my Freezer pro they just dont use any thermal pad

they put there special MX-1 thermal compound wich is like A5

they work about the same way

the company said it was optimized for my heatsink

but A5 is a good product =]

here it is -Pc



the Freezer 64 has very good cooling

AMD 64 3200+ @ 2.4ghz
1gb twinx1024
6800gs @ 490-1100

the thing with motherboard sensors is that the temperature is not an actual reading, but an calculation. mistakes can be made both ways and are usually random on motherboard sensors. temperature differences usually range from 1-5c optimistically.


5c is a huge difference comparing top notch hardware where the difference can come down to 0.5c. (take the storm G5 for example).

what i'm trying to say is that even if they are using the same mobo for all the hsfs tests, it can still make random mistakes that will throw off the data

and uber-g

there is no such thing as a compound "optimized" for a certain heatsink. thermal transfer capacity has nothing to do with what the heat is goign to
April 15, 2006 4:01:12 AM

ok how about ..

it would cool a "little" better then if u had put A5



8O


-_-
April 15, 2006 4:14:39 AM

you have testing for that? i doubt a cheap thermal pad will outperform as5
April 15, 2006 4:43:23 AM

that is not a review... that is a market scheme to promote their product -_-
April 15, 2006 5:04:58 AM

the review again uses motherboard sensors and asus is notorious for making shitty temp readings. also, you have to allow an amount of heat cycles on the as5 for it to perform at standard. so as5 actually performs better as time goes on


at best you proven to me that the mx1 compound is decent and should be considered as an alternative
April 15, 2006 5:16:41 AM

do u read all the stuff they did , i mean cmon dood





they dont use the motherboard sensor


=/


but mehhhhhhh y spend 6 bucks for something thats good enough
April 15, 2006 6:44:09 AM

oh my bad... i didn't see the probe, that adds a lot of legitamacy to the review


then i guess mx1 isn't a bad heatsink compound at all, but just to be anal i would've liked to see that probe be attached to the core itself, not the ihs. there is actually a recognizable temperature difference between teh core and teh side of the ihs

I got the Artic cooling 64 pro my rig is

Amd x2-3800
Asus A8N5X mobo

My case is a Chenbro gaming bomb 2 the exhaust of the fan on the cpu lines up with the exhaust fan on my case perfectly. i overclocked it once to 2.2 and temp stayed under 40c.

Thanks for the links Uber G.
Truly, this will save me $12, as I was going to spring for the hsf cleaner also.
That's about enough to spring for a 512 mb x1800xt instead of the 256.
I hope the Easter Bunny brings you something nice (if that's what you're into).
April 15, 2006 5:41:50 PM

we do have changing load temps when running constantly... lol

either way, mobo sensors=devil
April 20, 2006 5:25:53 PM

no prob

i read alot of reviews before i buy a product



if u need something looked up'd i will happly help anyone with some product advise


or ask other people

jesus loves !!
