    I had one of the original Alpine coolers and it was the only thing that I have tried from Arctic cooling that was terrible.:mad:
    I hope this one is better

    Yeah i had the original 'slab-o-aluminum' alpine 64 cooler too... the fan was its only saving grace, but it was a pretty awful cooler.

    I had mine in my Qpack, I replaced it with a simple Thermaltake copper cooler and the temps went down 10C with the TT cooler.

    Great if you get an OEM and want to enjoy the stock cooling experience?

    Me? I'd spend another $10 and get the Arctic 64 Pro. That thing's amazing. Huge, but amazing.

    I've used alpine 64's for customer builds (primarily desktop rigs and htpc's), they are cheap and get the job done. Not meant for OC'ing... that's for sure.

    They have another one called Alpine 7 Pro launched for Intel. But I love Freezer series more if I buy a new cooler~

    it should perform close to the stock cooler, but a hell of a lot quieter.

    This looks like something that OEMs would use. Its just a slab of aluminium with a better fan.
