Arctic Cooler 7 beats TRUE? - Page 3

post #21 of 30
The AC7 is a great cooler, it performs very well for it's price.

The TRUE is expensive, big, and you have to get a fan.

The TRUE is better though.

AF7 has it's way with other coolers...and by that i mean for the price, its unbelievable...3.4G on my 6400 at 58c is unheard of for a 20 dollar cooler.

Hi guys,
I have AF 7 Pro and it is able to bring my Q6600 to 3.6Ghz (1.46v) without breaking any sweat. However, my question is, under LOAD (1.41v) my temps are 69,69,65,65, why is it that there is a 4C difference between these 2 cores??? Is it too much?? Is something wrong with my heatsink??

Thats not bad mine has a 5 to 8 difference..with the AC7 both lapped load @ 3.2 vcore 1.2750 from 57c on one end to 50c on the other.

For people like me who run their cases upright and not on their side gravity would dictate that they should pull away from the CPU and therefore perform worse by your logic.

Based on test results that's not the case as we all know.

There is also a certain level of fan performance where the TRUE will benefit and the AC7 Pro will not.

I dropped 10ºC just by going from a 70CFM 120x25mm fan with low static pressure to a 110CFM 120x25mm fan with decent static pressure, I'm going to guess that this is the MAX performance now for my TRUE. The base of the TRUE though is really a poor QC thing in my opinion though, they should work harder at that.

Well if I was selling CPU coolers I would sure as hell say mine is as good as (if not better) than the TRUE because that would mislead people into buying my CPU coolers. Common marketing tactics; always say your product is the best.

Edit: For some reason I thought this was on AC's website lol.

nope

Thats is weird. I would have liked it better if they had run a bunch of tests/remounts for each cooler. Also would have helped if they let any thermal paste they had set.

Ok guys, I just installed an Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro and so far so good! I have a Noob question though! Do I still need to enable the Qfan from the Bios or just leave it in disable? I will be doing Mild Ocing only! Thanks!
