Artic Cooling 7 Pro? - Page 2

post #11 of 39
My son is using the AC Freezer 7 on his 125watt amd 6400 and keeps it cool. It is a very good economy cooler.

IMHO, it's not really any better than the stock intel cooler that comes with the E2xxx CPU's to be honest (though for the price of aftermarke coolers, it's quite efficient as far as cost/cooling goes). It probably helps more to keep down case temps since the heat from the CPU is being blown directly onto a case exhaust fan (as opposed to towards the motherboard like with the stock cooler). I run my e2180 with 1.42vcore (after vdroop) at 3.2GHz and orthos load temps hover around 57-61C (depending on ambients, which is around 68F). I'm idling around 27C. With gaming or constant video converting, I never go above 50C.

I think if you're shooting for 3.5+ GHz, which likely will require 1.5v+ vcore, then you might want better cooling--but chances are, the AC7 won't get you there either... Just my $0.02.

I strongly disagree with this statement. Just about any aftermarket cooler (dont take that too literally) is better than the stock Intel cooler.

I have a feeling your CPU would hit a big wall before your temps with a Freezer 7 would become a problem..at least thats what happened to me.

Not when you're talking about the e2xxx series--they take so few volts to OC, and don't put out that much heat in the first place--no need for a super cooler in this case. This intel cooler is by far the best stock cooler I've ever owned. It's even taken my CPU quite high--can run 3.5GHz 24/7 stable with it (orthos load temps reach 65C though...a bit too high, but way better than any other stock cooler can do, and also beats some aftermarket ones). But maybe I just got real lucky with my CPU and HS surfaces?

But if we're talking a stock cooler with your quad...not so great, LOL.

I have an E2160. With the stock cooler my temps were hitting 65+ even at 2.8 Ghz and 1.375v. I am now at 1.425v and I can take this baby to 3.24 Ghz and the temps will be 52C max.

Try more. The AC7 destroys the stock.

The AC7 has no problems keeping my E2160 at 3.1Ghz cool, it never goes above 47C

Odd...maybe I just got lucky with a cool chip? Hmm... Well, I guess if stock obviously doesn't work, then aftermarket it is...
