Arctic Liquid Freezer 240 AIO CPU Cooler Review

Rating: 9.0.

Typically, the better performing 240mm+ watercooling AIOs command a price premium. After all, in our 6 way round-up back in July, the coolers which claimed the top two spots both cost in excess of 100 pounds. However, Arctic are trying to change that with the Liquid Freezer 240, which costs just £75.95.

For that price, the Arctic Liquid Freezer 240 offers consumers four of Arctic’s F12 fans, a 38mm-thick radiator and a clean, minimal design. For the money, it certainly seems like an enticing deal – but before jumping to any conclusions we must assess the performance of the unit. In this review we go over the installation process, raw cooling performance as well as noise output to see if the Liquid Freezer 240 is worthy of your money.
