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

Arctic Cooling have impressed us again, producing a product that performs well.  Thanks to the use of push-pins and pre-applied thermal paste, the installation process couldn’t be simpler so the Freezer Xtreme is perfect for less advanced users.  This mechanism is a little flimsy for a cooler of this size, though, and we would have preferred to have seen a proper backplate for support.

Additionally we’re a little disappointed that there is no provision for adding further fans or even replacing the original fan with a different model.  This is redeemed to some extent by the fan which Arctic Cooling include which runs quietly and shifts a reasonable amount of air.

At a price of £28 at Ebuyer, the Arctic Cooling Freezer Xtreme is around £12 more expensive than the Freezer 7 Pro.  We don’t feel that the performance difference is worth quite so much extra but for those looking for a little more performance, the Freezer Xtreme is still a good option.

KitGuru says: A decent cooler which is perfect for users who want to achieve a modest overclock without paying over the odds.
