Arctic Cooling Announces Arctic Freezer 13 CPU Cooler

ARCTIC is pleased to announce their new CPU cooler today – Freezer 13 – that carries on the legacy of the renowned Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 to continue providing efficient and low noise CPU cooling solution for enthusiasts. The maximum cooling capacity of this newly improved cooler is 200W. In combination of wide compatibility with AMD and Intel sockets and superior cooling performance, the Freezer 13 ultimately brings overclocking to a new level.

Featuring four U-shaped high performance heatpipes and 45 efficiently formed aluminum fins; the Freezer 13 is able to dissipate massive heat that is produced in high-end CPUs, such as Intel Core i7. To facilitate the process of removing waste heat, the Freezer 13 is equipped with an ultra-quiet 92mm PWM fan. The fan speed runs from 600 to 2000 RPM to keep components within their safe operating temperature limit.

User-Friendly Mounting Mechanism
Installing Freezer 13 cannot be any easier. With ARCTIC’s own design of push pins, mounting the cooler on to the system is quick and simple. The mounting system is very convenient as it fits on all current platforms – it is unnecessary to take apart the main board. Its sturdy mounting frame is able to withstand the weight of the Freezer 13, even under worst conditions, such as a drop test. A layer of ARCTIC MX-4, the latest thermal compound by ARCTIC, has been pre-applied to facilitate the process of installation as well.

Great Bargain
With its competitive pricing, the performance of the Freezer 13 outperforms other coolers in the market. The price and reliable performance ratio is a great bargain for gamers, overclockers and even ordinary enthusiasts.

The Freezer 13 comes with a 6 year limited warranty. It is available in late October. The MSRP is US$35.90/ 27.60€, excl.VAT.

Cheap and small is good, but one 92 mm fan and 200 W heat uptake? I don't think so but I would gladly be proven wrong.

I'd like to see a review on this thing.

Because for $35 you could easily get a Hyper 212+ instead.

Th 212+ is a HDT piece of crap this is not. If you really want to compare it to something this a Gelid Traquillo/ Zerotherm FZ120 class of product.

If they keep the prices when this hits retail it will sell pretty big.

Not really:

A50
3 heatpipes
120mm fan
159.5 x 81.2 x 124.6

Freezer 13
4 heatpipes
92mm fan
123 x 96 x 130

The only thing they have in common is the general design.

Shape wise it looks like the OCZ Vendetta with an extra pipe.

the 212+ is a piece of crap. It performs pretty darn good based on the price. But opinions vary I guess. I like the looks of this and would love to see AC come out with a high end high price cooler as well.

Push pins coupled with the line that says 'unnecessary to take apart the main board' leads me to say no backplate.

Looks like a nice product. I am sad that prices have gone up so much on AC coolers... I've always had good luck with them though, so maybe I'll give it a shot with my new RV02 chassis! :toast:

Probably another heatsink, just can't place my tongue on which one. I think dub has it right though, the Vendetta.

Don't they all? theres hardly any innovation left in the cooling field.. they are all modifications of each other.
