I5-2400 + Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2

Hi all

Is anybody able to advise how the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 cooler performs compared to the stock cooler on an i5-2400 in terms of cooling and noise?

I looked at Tom's review of this cooler (link) and it appears to have choked with the monstrous overclocked CPU used during that test.

I am also aware that many of you recommend the Cooler Master Hyper 212+ as the weapon of choice.

However, I have an opportunity to pick up an Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 for 1/3 the price of a Cooler Master Hyper 212+. My needs are fairly modest and this would be for a budget gaming rig with no ambitions to overclock anything (hence not a "k" CPU).

Any feedback would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Does your computer have the width space for a hyper 212? If it does I would definitly go with that. If it does not I have heard good things about this fan/heatsink- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It's an upgrade over the stock cooler.
Try it out if it's cheap.

do a before and after
it's probably quieter too.
