Artic Cooling

Hi there, I just bought and installed a new Artic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro, and its had its 200 hrs now too harden the MX1 I used and this thing ROCKS, I had one of their ultra TC HSF's before this and it was totally inadequate at cooling but very pretty and silent, this new freezer 64 dropped my temps by 12 degrees under load on a chip that has been running way too hot... its a tall HSF, but it fits well, and even has fins to direct some air over the mosfets and ram... I would definately recommend this to anyone that wants a quiet effecient HSF for about $35 CAN...

just a note...it's 200hrs of thermal changes that set the thermalpaste...not 200hrs of runtime, AFAIK.

Would folding count? I have left it running the whole time...

it's the change between phases that helps the paste settle(hard, soft, hard), or so i think i read on the website...so 200 hours of hot/cold/hot/cold etc.
