Yo, few weeks ago i got my self ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2

I have Dual Core E6300 2.80ghz processor, with stock Intel Cooler While Idle my temps are at 40c, durning gaming i got around 59-60c and with prime 95 i got 70-72c.

With ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 i overclocked my processor to 3.20ghz while idle 40c (i set desired 40c in speedfan) and durning gaming 40-41c and with prime 95 runed i get max temp 46c.

Its awsome, cheap and it does it job. ;) 

screenshot durning Prime 95 test:

I have one question though. After i close the game or prime and temps drop to 40c the speedfan still keeps speed at 100%, i waited about 5 min and it dosent drops them to 30% as i configure it. I also have the Automatic set on. How you make so when it hits your desired temp it automaticly lowers the speed to 30%? I have Q-fan in my bios off.

Have you tried just using Q-Fan? I've found their profiles are decent generally as long as your temps are being reported correctly.

Yeah at begining i had Q-Fan on Enabled i still got nice temps 49-50c in Prime and while gaming 40-41c. The problem with Q-Fan Enabled was the rpm was only around 1000rpm on full load.

But i get -5c less temp with Q-Fan Disabled and my fan is controlled by speedfan and the rpm can get higher up to 2000+ depending on load.

Though i found out what was the problem. In Desired temps, you need to set 1 degree higher than your idle temps. So now it will drop normally depending on your cpu load. :)

I can vouch that this is a great cooler. I got it for 20 bucks on sale some time ago. I have the original version (not sure what the difference is; they look the same) and my temps are similar to yours. I have a q9550 @ 3.5ghz. I don't know if I should be turning my fan down because it will wear out or something, but I just keep it at 100 percent all the time.

One thing I noticed, though, is that when I had a less robust graphics card (9800gtx+ 1gb) my cpu would get much hotter on load, by almost 20 degrees (upper 70's). I upgraded to a GTX 460 1gb and I top out in the upper 50's. I assume this is because my cpu is not having to work as hard, but I don't know.

Good cooler.
