Arctic Freezer 13 Pro Review

Rating: 9.0.

Since opening in May 2010 we have looked at a variety of items from Arctic and we have found that their range of products often deliver high levels of performance for very little cost. In September 2010, Henry reviewed their MX-4 Thermal paste and it was the first product to receive a perfect KitGuru 10/10 rating.

Today in the KitGuru lab we have the Freezer 13 Pro which is the latest CPU cooler offered by Arctic. The Freezer 13 Pro features their Cross-Blow cooling technique and claims to have the maximum cooling capacity of 300 watts. That kind of cooling ability should be able to tame pretty much any CPU currently available. With that in mind we have high hopes that this solution on test today will really deliver the goods.

    That thing is a beast of a cooler.

    Im glad you mentioned the weight, normally that would be placed on a backplate, but a standard mounting bracket? thats a bit of a risk I think long term.

  • To Trev,
    Based on your inquiry we have done a 6-time drop test with the Freezer 13 PRO in our PC case. The drop height is 1.5m.

    The test shows the bracket is sturdy enough to protect the motherboard.
