Arctic has released the successor to the Freezer 13 CPU cooler. The new Freezer 13X series includes 4 new coolers for both Intel and AMD systems. Just like the original Freezer 13 series, there is a CO variant that includes a fan with increased reliability for continuous operation.
All CPU coolers that belong to the Freezer 13X series come with a 92mm P-fan, but the CO variants use double-ball bearing for reliable 24/7 operation over the fluid dynamic bearing of the standard Freezer 13X coolers. In spite of using different bearing types, both fans have the same RPM range, from 300RPM to 2000RPM, and the same rated noise level of 0.3 Sone.
Featuring 3x 6mm Direct Touch copper heat pipes, the heatsink of the Freezer 13X has 44 cooling fins to handle the heat generated by the CPU. This heatsink together with the 92mm fan offers a cooling performance improvement of up to 5% when compared with its respective predecessors while generating less noise and reducing the cooler's power consumption.
Thanks to the reduced dimensions of 86x109x137mm (LxWxH), the Freezer 13X coolers can be mounted in most systems. The cooler comes with pre-applied MX-2 thermal paste to facilitate the mounting process. The Freezer A13X coolers are compatible with AMD AM4 sockets, while the Freezer i13X coolers are compatible with Intel LGA 115x, 2066, and 2011(-3).
The Arctic Freezer 13X series is backed by a 6-year warranty and is available now, starting at €22.99 for the Freezer A13X, €23.99 for the Freezer i13X, €24.99 for the Freezer A13X CO, and €25.99 for the Freezer i13X CO. You can learn more about these coolers HERE.
