Arctic-Cooling Freezer 64 PRO

2. Installation

One of the most important things with any cooling system, is how easily it can be installed, so that anyone with little experience can proceed with the upgrade. According to the manufacturer, the Freezer 64 PRO is very simple to install. We believe this to be true since the previous Freezer 64 model was also simple in its installation.

Start by removing any previous cooling system and clean the CPU of any remains of thermal compound. Make sure you have the default plastic base of your 939 socket motherboard, the one it came with.

Before attaching the Freezer 64 PRO on the CPU, make sure you have removed the plastic cover from the base, covering the thermal compound.

Remove the plastic cover from the base...

Place the Freezer 64 PRO on the CPU and lock it in place starting with the side without the lever and afterwards the side with the lever.

Looking at the fan, this is the left side of the cooler...
...and this is the right with the lever...
Move the bracket from the left to the right to lock in place...

Finally, place the power connector from the Freezer 64 PRO to the appropriate connection on the motherboard. The one with "CPU FAN" indicated, for most boards.

Power supply is necessary for the Freezer 64 PRO to work...

Confirming the manufacturer's claims of easy installation, we needed only a few minutes for the whole procedure. Now everything is set and it is safe to turn on your PC. Check the connection once again and the seating of the Freezer 64 PRO before proceeding...

...up and working...

Now let's see how the new cooling system performs on the next page...
