Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 CPU Cooler Review

Freezer 13

I still remember the early days when I began building.  My first aftermarket CPU cooler was the Arctic Cooling Freezer 64.  At the time, it was hands down the best bang-for-the-buck cooler for an AMD machine.  Much has changed since then, but still Arctic has been putting out coolers in that value "sweet spot."  Their Freezer 13 provides some nostalgia for me, as it's not so different from the one I owned long ago... a budget cooler providing significantly better performance than stock coolers.

 

Introduction

The Freezer 13 carries the legacy of the renowned Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2. With 4 high-performance heatpipes the cooler brings 200 Watts cooling performance – enough to cool down every current CPU, all the while being extremely silent.

Cooling

 

Superior Cooling Capacity

With detailed engineering design, the Freezer 13 is comprised of four U-shaped high performance heatpipes and 45 efficiently formed aluminum fins. The maximum cooling capacity for this cooler is 200W and is able to dissipate massive heat produced in highend CPUS, such as Intel Core i7

Ultra Quiet

Operated with a 92mm PWM fan, the entire running operation remains whisper quiet, even at full load. The fan speed normally runs from 600 to 2000 RPM, which is sufficient to maintain your CPU at an ideal temperature.
