[Fud] Arctic Cooling Freezer Xtreme tested

Arctic Cooling is a name that has become synonymous with PC cooling, and they are famous for cheap but highly reliable products. The famous Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro has found its way to a lot of computer cases, and after almost two years Arctic Cooling has decided to launch a new cooler, the Freezer Xtreme. Unlike its Freezer predecessor, the new Freezer Xtreme is quite bigger and aims at computer enthusiasts and overclockers. We decided to take a closer look at this new arrival from Arctic Cooling and compare it to the 2-year old Freezer 7 Pro.



Unlike Freezer 7 Pro which had a 92mm fan mounted on the heatsink, the new Freezer Xtreme comes with a 120mm fan sandwiched between two large heatsinks. The cooler can be easily pulled out for cleaning, and you actually have to take it out in order to mount the cooler.

The cooler has a 160 Watts of cooling capacity and comes with an unique twin tower 102-fin heatsink design with four double sided heatpipes. The new Freezer Xtreme measures 130 x 100 x 131mm (LxWxH) and weighs 608g, so you might want to measure the clearance on your motherboard before buying this behemoth. The cooler can also cool the memory, northbridge and voltage regulators depending on the motherboard layout and the way you mount it on the motherboard. The copper core comes with pre-applied MX-2 thermal paste.

If only it had 5 or even 6 heatpipes it could have been one of the best....4 heatpipe, everyone and their mother have 4 heatpipes.

Not bad, but not all that good either. It might be alright with a faster fan in it but it would kind of defeat the purpose.

FWIW, the Freezer 7 Pro is a hard act to follow. On the cheaper C2D's, it has no problem keeping the chip at acceptable temps even when OC'd to the max. The Freezer 7 is audible but far from annoying.
