FrostyTech
15 September 2011
  • Summary: The Freezer 13 Pro looks like a big step up from the previous model, but according to Frostytech's heatsink reference charts it works out to a ~3°C drop in temperature at full fan speed. Noise output is maintained at a reasonably quiet level, in part because the 120mm PWM fan utilizes fluid dynamic bearings, but mostly because the fan rotates at a slow speed.

Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 Pro CPU Cooler Review

ThinkComputers
31 July 2011
  • Summary: Conclusion Overall the Freezer 13 Pro is fairly simple to install, but there can be some clearance issues with this basic installation procedure. There’s only one way to install the cooler, at least for an AMD setup, of which most times can become a problem due to clearance issues with the motherboard.  This is the first CPU cooler that I have seen that utilizes a base fan, which I really think is a great idea and should be adopted by more manufacturers.

Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 Pro CPU Cooler

APH Networks
8 April 2011
  • Conclusion: Canada -- the country full of ice. We live in igloos made from blocks of snow, ride dog sleighs to work, and, as bad as weather may seem, winter takes up almost twelve out of the twelve months of the year. There are a few months in between filled with surprising weather where you can't predict when will happen the next day, and such variable patterns are especially true here at APH Networks Calgary. For those who live in this city, you will know what I am talking about.

Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 Pro CPU Cooler Review

Hardware Secrets
7 April 2011
  • Summary: The Freezer 13 Pro draws attention. It has good looks, and also a unique feature that may intrigue most users: the small centrifugal fan over its base. The highlights of the Freezer 13 Pro are the easy installation and the low noise level; it is actually one of the quietest coolers we tested to date. It is also not too expensive. However, when describing performance, the Freezer 13 Pro is a good cooler, but not a high-end one.

  • Excerpt: As with many things from days gone by, a few designs get overlooked and would have been a great product if minute changes would have been made on the original. Due to time constraints, or even the later development of an improvement idea, every once in a while a company will go back and rework the original into a much better revision for the second showing. It seems this is just one of those cases, so let's see what Arctic Cooling has up their sleeve.

  • Conclusion: I have mixed feelings regarding the performance of the Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 CPU cooler. At first, it looked very promising with its 4 Copper heatpipes, contoured Aluminum fins, as well as the included quiet 92mm fan. I was hoping for some really good temperatures. But during our tests, we managed to get an idle temperature of 26 degrees Celsius, peaking to around 46 degrees at full load.

  • Excerpt: 0 Flares 0 Flares × Since opening in May 2010 we have looked at a variety of items from Arctic and we have found that their range of products often deliver high levels of performance for very little cost.

  • Summary: Jeg synes ydelsen går lige til en 3´er. Jeg havde forventet lidt mere af køleren, nu hvor den havde den ekstra blæser i bunden.

ARCTIC Freezer 13 PRO CO Review

PCMHZ
22 May 2011
  • Conclusion: ARCTIC Freezer 13 PRO CO se descurcă onorabil pentru gama de preţ din care face parte (~140 lei) reuşind să treacă etapa a doua care poate fi considerată un test extreme TDP datorită dimensiunilor şi specificatiilor acestui cooler. Este clar că nu se adresează segmentului extreme al răcirii pe aer, la coroană atacă alţi pretendenţi, însă ce mă miră pe mine este cum de nu a scos ARCTIC cel mai bun cooler CPU pe aer din moment ce au cel mai bun cooler VGA (seria Accelero...
