Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Review
4 October 2011
Excerpt: Introduction Arctic Cooling gained widespread respect for their classic VGA Silencer videocard cooler. The cooler helped Arctic Cooling earn a name for themselves as a manufacturer of high performance parts that operated at the threshold of pure silence. With the goal of enforcing that reputation, they've recently released updates to the Silencer line, and have a brand new line of silent cases, and CPU coolers.
Summary: Comparing a low profile cooler to other "Regular Sized" coolers is like comparing apples to oranges, so before we even started we had to assume that the performance wasn't going to be ground-breaking by any means. My biggest question is how does the Freezer 7 LP compare to stock cooling, as well as I was interested to see how it compared to the other low profile coolers I've reviewed in the past.
Pros: Good Performance (Compared to other Low Profile Coolers), High Quality Heatsink and Fan, Competitively Priced
Summary: The Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 LP is a lightweight Intel socket 775 heatsink made specifically for slim-line and book-sized PC cases. It stands less than 50mm high, weighs just 260 grams and operates very quietly.
Conclusion: The Freezer 7 LP is small, lightweight, quiet and performs very well considering its size, it would work very well in an HTPC system where size and noise levels are of the greatest concerns. If you're building an HTPC system, or even a regular system where size is an issue then this might be a cooler you'd want to look into getting, tough if you're using a C2Q based system you might want to look elsewhere for your cooling needs… DragonSteelMods gives the Freezer 7 LP a 4...
Excerpt: In the past we looked at several small HTPC inspired coolers and walked away from all of them dissatisfied with the performance they achieved. Some of the coolers were outright dangerous for the applications claimed by the manufacturer and we needed to make it clear that such a small cooler was not really intended for flagship, "Extreme" processors.
Conclusion: The Freezer 7 proved to be more than a standard cooling solution. It proved to be a good one, keeping the temperature levels low without producing too much noise and without pushing everything else inside the PC case to the sides in order to fit. The F7 is a small enough heatsink, with a quite small fan rotating at 2500 RPM, 2 copper heat-pipes and aluminum fins. All these combine flawlessly and give the best outcome one can expect from a cooler of this size.
Pros: Very good thermal dissipation, Easy to install
Conclusion: Testy! Jako platformę testową wykorzystaliśmy zestaw komputerowy oparty o procesor Intel Pentium 4 Prescott. Specyfikacja komputera poniżej: Jako oprogramowanie zapewniające pełne obciążenie procesora został użyty program w trybie "In-place large fft". Wykresy przedstawiają kolejno zanotowane temperatury w trybie idlle, stress oraz 15 minut po pełnym obciążeniu procesora. Wszystkie testy zostały wykonane bez obudowy, w pomieszczeniu o (mniej więcej) stałej temp.
