Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro: Worth buying if you're using a stock cooler
16 August 2010
Summary: If you have an intel stock cooler - bin it (well, dispose of it properly!). I was having trouble with CPU temperatures prior to buying this - my old Pentium D processor would regularly get above 60*C on full load with the sock cooler. After I'd installed this temperatures were more like 40-55*c. It's even cooler with the Core 2 Duo CPU I have now (35-50*c).
Pros: 10*c cooler over stock cooler, inexpensive
Cons: Plastic feels a bit cheap, can take a while to install securely
The future of CPU cooling, the new Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro!

Excerpt: "The Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro has a huge 92mm silent fan which keeps airspeed to a minimum, but maximizes airflow. It has a total of 6 heat pipes, which bring heat from the CPU and spread it evenly through the fins of the heat sink. The hot air will travel directly out of your PC case, whereas stock CPU fans just blow the hot air around. This product is recommended for any gamer which does not want to over clock their system, but who still wants ...
Summary: The Arctic Freezer 7 Pro is a great fan which provides adequate cooling for your CPU, overclocked or otherwise. When I first bought my Intel Core 2 Duo Q6600 processor, I wasn't entirely satisfied with the temp that the stock fan was giving me. The core temps were a little too high for me, so I decided to buy an aftermarket cooler. I had heard good things about this one in particular and the screenshots I saw of it looked very nice so I decided to go for it.
Excerpt: "...900-2500 RPM Air Flow: 45 CFM Bearing: ARCTIC Ceramic Bearing Weight: 520g Noise Level: 0.9 Sone Thermal Resistance: 0.17 degrees c/w === Conclusion === Whilst maybe not suitable for overclocking, if you're looking to make your computer a lot quieter, you should really consider the Freezer 7 Pro. In comparison to similar products, it's relatively cheap but really does perform as well as units twice the price. ...
Pros: Very quiet when idle, comes with thermal paste, good conductivity
Cons: Quite noisy at higher RPMs, tricky to install
Excerpt: "...Celsius and with the new Arctic Freezer 7 Pro i am now peaking on full load at 46 degrees Celsius. (My tower also has 3 additional cooling fans as well so i had to point it out.) The Fan being mounted on the side of the Heat sink is a great idea as heat naturally rises. Also the fins at the bottom of the heat sink direct airflow towards the motherboard components which helps keep them cool. When this initially arrived in the post i was surprised ...
Summary: The Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro is an amazing heat sink; it far surpasses the stock heat sinks provided with all Intel Socket 775 processors. I paid approximately £15 for this heat sink which it is relatively cheap compared to other cooling systems on the market. Despite the price I was not disappointed. Firstly the noise reduction is huge, before I could hear my Intel fan over everything in my case, but now I only hear a slight bit of noise from my hard drive.

Summary: I have to admit that I heard the hype behind this product, and I wasn't sure wht all the fuss was about...until I used one. What a great HSF! I set this up on a Gigabyte board running an Intel Core 2 Duo processor (sorry, can't remember the exact models). At the same time I bought the Freezer 7 Pro and replaced the supplied Intel HSF. The processor was overclocked from 2.4 to 3.2GHz and the Freezer 7 Pro coped brilliant with this heat surge.
Excerpt: "I bought this cooler the other day on Amazon and it arrived today, thankfully 20 minutes after my new cpu did. The first thing that struck me was that the fan is positioned to the side of the heatsink rather than on top of it. Thus blowing hot air through the fins of the heatsink, which has the added advantage of cooling the electical transistors on the motherboard. The heatsink also came with thermal paste already in place which made things easier. ...
