Arctic-Cooling Freezer 64 PRO

4. Conclusion

The Freezer 64 was a nice cooler but the new Freezer 64 PRO has an even better design and construction. With minor improvements, the new cooler offers some strong features. 42 fins, 6 heatpipes, vibration absorbing system just to name a few.

Installation of the Freezer 64 is accomplished in a few minutes. In fact, it took longer to remove the stock fansink and clean the CPU of thermal compound than it did to install the Arctic cooling solution.

According to our tests, the Freezer 64 PRO reported very good performance with low temperature levels. If you're still using AMD's stock cooling system, then the new Freezer 64 PRO will lower the temperature of your CPU by up to 3°C in idle state while as the load increases, you'll have an even greater drop. The reported 8°C under full load is a very good reason to upgrade your stock cooling system. If you want to overclock your AMD, the Freezer 64 PRO will also help you there as long as you don't go overboard :-)

The Freezer 64 PRO at work...

Although the new cooler from Arctic-Cooling reported improved performance in temperature, the noise levels remained as with the previous models, low. The four rubber mounts on the fan case did their job quite well by absorbing any vibrations from the fan, preventing any transfer to the heatsink or the case. The fins are also more solid and there is no noise from vibrations. A couple of simple improvements made the new Freezer 64 PRO overall better than its predecessor.

At the time of this review, the Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 PRO was priced around US$35 / €28, a very low price for what this cooler can offer. Worth the money for sure...

Pros:
-
Very good performance
- Low noise levels
- Easy to install
- Simple innovative technology
- Low price

Cons:
- An extra tube with thermal compound would be nice :-)
