MSI Core Frozr XL RGB Air Cooler Review

Temperatures

All temperature charts are sorted with lowest load temperatures at the top.


As you can see above, performance of the Frozr XL is actually quite middling. It does perform a bit better with an overclocked CPU, but even so, I would’ve thought that its 8 heatpipes, and two fans, might have helped temperatures a bit more.

It is still far from bad, though – after all, it is only 4 degrees behind our top-performing air cooler, the Cryorig R1 Ultimate, but even so, the Cryorig H7 is smaller and cheaper while still proving to be a better performer.

Acoustics

The Frozr XL’s noise levels are good, however. With the CPU idling I couldn’t hear the fans, and when under load the noise is still not much of a racket. This is with the cooler next to me using an open-air test bed, too – in a case, the noise would be frankly negligible.
