AC Freezer 7

2. Installation/Package

Arctic Cooling provided us with a sample unit of the Freezer 7 Pro. The cost is around €28 according to the AC website.

The box includes the Freezer 7 Pro cooler, a printed installation guide and an AC logo sticker.

Let's now examine the Freezer 7 Pro. Reading from the specs, you should have already realized that this a... big cooler. Its overall height is 12.5cm, making it almost double than of Intel's stock cooler:

The cooler has a rather unique design, patented by AC internationally. The base is made of copper and comes with ARCTIC MX-1 thermal compound attached.

The time has come to install the cooler in our system. At first, I was rather skeptical about how easy it would be to install such a big cooler. However, once you get cracking, it really is simple. Freezer 7 Pro will fit perfectly in your Socket 775 base. Just plug in and rotate the four base-plate plastic screws. The only thing that may give you some trouble is the two "front" screws, which need special attention, since the rotating fan is just above them, so you'll have to angle the screwdriver to get at them. After installation, you can see how it looks in your system:

Orientation of the rotating fan is towards the memory modules. However, its level is higher than the memory modules so it should have unobstructed airflow. Since the air flow is from left to right, the hot air rising above the memory modules will also be drawn away and exhausted out, providing better cooling for your memory!
