Following the launch of the Freezer 50 TR, Arctic has now launched the dual-tower Freezer 50 for other modern platforms. Compatible with both mainstream Intel and AMD processors, the Freezer 50 also features ARGB lighting and impressive cooling performance to improve your system’s aesthetics and cooling.
The asymmetrical dual-tower aluminium heatsink features 6x U-shaped curved direct-touch heat pipes for improved heat dissipation and distribution. On top of the heatsink, there’s black cover with 13x ARGB LEDs compatible with “A-RGB standards of leading motherboard manufacturers” so users can synchronise the lighting with the rest of the system. Unfortunately, due to the heatsink size and fan shroud design, it doesn’t offer unlimited RAM clearance, only allowing up to 37.5mm tall modules. If the memory module has a V-shaped heatsink, higher modules can also be compatible.
The Freezer 50 comes with 2x P fans, a 120mm fan (200-1800RPM) and a 140mm fan (200-1700RPM), both with a rated noise level of 0.4sone at max speed. The P fans also offer other advantages including lower power consumption, less vibration, longer lifespan, high static pressure, PWM, and hydrodynamic plain bearings.
There’s a version that includes an ARGB controller. If your motherboard doesn’t have ARGB connectors, you can customise the RGB lighting through the controller. The controller can be placed anywhere inside the housing, allowing the user to change the RGB lighting through the remote control that comes with it.
The Freezer 50 is compatible with Intel LGA 1200, 115X, 2066, and 2011(-3), and AMD AM4. Additionally, the installation process has now become easier and faster thanks to Arctic’s “revised assembly system”.
The Arctic Freezer 50 cooler is available now for €59.99 and €69.99 if it includes the ARGB controller. Both include Arctic MX-4 thermal paste.
