Arctic-Cooling Freezer 7 PRO

4. Conclusion

The Freezer 7 PRO is a cooler designed from very good materials and of excellent construction. The 6 heatpipes along with the 42 fins deliver a lot of cooling. The four rubber connectors on the fan case offer vibration dampening from the running fan and prevent vibration transfer to the heatsink and the case, something you don't usually see with coolers.

The Freezer 7 PRO produced very good performance in our tests with low temperatures and noise levels. In idle, the Freezer 7 PRO reduced the temperature of our CPU by 9°C while under full load, it did even better by lowering the CPU temperature by 15°C. This is not the only thing we noticed. If you are interested in overclocking your system, the Freezer 7 PRO will serve you well. Although with the stock cooler, our P4 650 3.4GHz had a limit close to 4.25GHz, where the system booted and ran all of our tests without problems, when we installed the Freezer 7 PRO, we managed to set the speed of our CPU up to 4.42GHz with not significant temperature increase.

The noise levels were rather low, confirming the manufacturer's specifications, while in all cases, (idle mode, full load, benchmarks etc) the rotation speed for the fan was 2420~2600rpm.

The Freezer 7 PRO up and working...

Installing the Freezer 7 PRO was definitely not a problem. Adopting the same mounting mechanism as the stock cooling system from Intel, it is not a problem even if you have no experience with such things. It has thermal compound pre-applied in order to avoid any inconvenience and mess with tubes. A couple of minutes are enough for the whole procedure.

The new Freezer 7 PRO costs US$34 / €28 (VAT excl.) - along with a 6 year warranty and company support, definitely an affordable solution which we highly recommend.

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

Cons:
- No extra tube with thermal compound in the retail package
