Default Do these look the same to u?

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER RR-PCH-S9U1-GP 92mm CPU Cooler - Retail


Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler - Retail


to me they look the same, are coolermaster cloning arctic freezer or vice-versa?

Although they look the same, the specs on the fans are different.

They are the same architecture just about but look more closely and you will see that the Arctic Freezer Pro has larger dimensions, and spins at a higher RPM which allows it to give better CFM.

Do you plan on purchasing the AF7 from newegg and were looking at others? If so then get one from ewiz or svc becuase they have them for like 22-24 bucks there.

The AF7, also looks like, it has bigger fins, than the CM. I was looking at it, from the side view.

Yep all in all the Arctic freezer Pro 7 is a better cooler. When I get my new mobo I'm going to lap it and put on some AS5. The Arctic Freezer Pro 7 when lapped will take down like 3 or 4 more degrees. It's quite ana amazing cooler for the price.

eWiz.com Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro CPU Fan For Intel CPU

Free shipping too...now thats a deal >.<

Exactly..it may not be the most powerful but most on this site are not crazy overclockers. I myself have an E6300 @ 3.22ghz and while that may seem high that's nothing compared to some people; my arctic freezer keeps me cool enough and after I get a new mobo I'm going to lap and add some AS5 to it and I will be even cooler.

The fact that the cooler is 22 bucks and can keep a chip cool enough even when overclocked is what it's so good. it may be up to 8 degrees worse cooling than a Tuniq but the Tuniq is also about 150&#37; the cost.
