Arctic Cooling Freezer 7

4. 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. The major achievement of the Freezer 7 is not so much that it offers a significant drop in temperature over the stock cooler, but rather that it does it while at the same time being silent.

While all other CPU coolers run at 3000+ RPM, the F7 runs at an average speed of 2500 RPM, regardless of whether the CPU is in idle or under full load. While reviewing this heatsink, we were able to verify that this is indeed a silent cooler. It appears that the patented fan design, along with the heat-pipes and the fins, really make a difference.

The Freezer 7 up and working...

Installing the F7 was not a problem. We managed to complete the installation and have the cooler up and working in only a few minutes. This is a major plus for any CPU heatsink, as the average user with little know how and experience can easily install it, without getting into too much trouble.

Being an affordable solution - the F7 costs US$34 / €28 (VAT excl.) - along with the 6 years warranty and company support, this cooler can easily make its way to the top of any potential buyers list.
