Arctic Cooling Freezer Xtreme (Rev.2) CPU Cooler Review

The system we used for testing comprised of an Intel Core i7 920 CPU on an Asus P6T motherboard.  For our tests we replaced the preapplied Arctic Cooling MX-2 thermal paste with MX-3.


Test System

Coolers: Arctic Cooling Freezer Xtreme (Rev.2), Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro (Rev.2) (Review)

Chassis: Thermaltake Level 10
Processor: Intel Core i7 920 (D0)
Motherboard: Asus P6T
Memory: 6GB (3x 2GB) Corsair Dominator DDR3-1600 RAM
Storage: Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB 7200rpm (HD103SJ)
Power Supply: Corsair HX850W

Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)


We noted a 6c improvement in performance over the Freezer Xtreme’s little brother, the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro, under load. Despite this, the Freezer 7 Pro was able to achieve a 2c lower idle temperature.  We managed to achieve a decent overclock of 3.8GHz within tolerable temperatures with the Xtreme which is reasonably impressive for cooler of this price.
