Asus Arctic Square

1. Introduction

We all know of ASUS as producing mainly motherboards and graphic cards. So we were surprised to hear that ASUS was announcing CPU cooler products. There is of course a large market for such products, so why shouldn't a big company like ASUS enter this market? But there are many other companies, with a long history in this sector already, like Thermaltake and Arctic Cooling, and with very good products. So what can ASUS offer to compete with what is already on the market?

Asus provided us the opportunity to test their latest CPU cooler, the "Arctic Square". This cooler supports Socket 775 and AM2 sockets. But first, let's take a look at the major features of Asus' Arctic Square.

- Features

Powerful Performance for Overclocking
Copper base with 4 heat pipes provide excellent heat dissipation, efficiently transferring heat to the fins and maintaining low temperatures for high-performance computing.

Compact and Reliable
The Arctic Square incorporates "Ladder-Shaped" fins on both sides to enlarge the heat exchange surface area, for effective cooling while maintaining a compact design.

Balance between Performance and Acoustic
PWM function automatically adjusts fan speed according to CPU temperature and delivers a quiet cooling operation.

Multiple Application
Universal retention module designed for Intel® LGA775 and AMD™ K8 939/940/AM2 platforms support.

Inner Fan Technology
The fan is positioned inside the frame for maximum airflow and VRM shield guides cool air to critical components around the CPU for stable operation.
