Arctic Cooling Announces Freezer 11 LP CPU Cooler

The compact-sized Freezer 11 LP brings low noise cooling into low profile and HTPC Systems. With a height of 53mm only, the cooler squeezes into even most tiny PC cases. With dimensions of 115(L)*106(W)*53(H)mm, having a weight of only 255g, the Freezer 11LP is extremely compact. It fits virtually into any low profile PC case and is the ideal choice for any HTPC system.

Equipped with an ultra-quiet 92mm PWM fan and two copper heatpipes, the Freezer 11 LP offers a maximum cooling capacity of 90W. The dual high performance 6mm heatpipes efficiently dissipate the heat from the CPU into the block consisting of 50 aluminum fins.

The unique mounting system via push pins offers excellent stability and is applicable within seconds. The pre-applied ARCTIC MX-2 thermal compound makes the installation a clean process. The cooler is compatible with Intels socket 1155, 1156 and 775.

The Freezer 11 LP is a very quiet cooling solution. Even when the fan is spinning at its full speed at 2,000 RPM, the low noise impeller in the 92mm PWM fan makes the entire operation to be nearly inaudible. The patented fan holder design reduces the unwanted noise by absorbing the vibration from the spinning impeller as well.

“The Freezer 11LP is the one to go for if you are looking for a cooler for slim PC systems. Its powerful cooling capacity along with its nearly inaudible operation outperforms its competitors and stock coolers. The price and performance ratio is very inviting – it is the ultimate cooler for any lowprofile PC cases,” said Peter Jankowski, Sales Director, ARCTIC Switzerland.

Any idea on price? What do HTPC coolers like this usually run?

Looks nice but I'm not the only one that wonders how this gets mounted, am I?
Some pictures of the "unique mounting system" would be nice.


edit: ahh, seems so obvious now:

You can also search for reviews. I've seen a few, it doesn't seem that much hard to install. It sure has a very good performance for it's price.

Seems adequate for E6000 Pentiums and E7000 Core 2 Duos...Still, it's better then the 1st version...

That's what I thought first too. But then I realised that 45w processors will not need 10 heatpipes.

the much older amd one was 3 heatpipes

freezer 64LP have one on the htpc i built my dad swapped the fans for 60mm thin HDD ones and it sit sub 40C in a low pro case with a 9150e phenom under it albiet its undervolted to 45w

and this si very similar to the thermaltake low profile cooler which is 2 heatpipes as well and kept my i3 pretty cool for a bit until it went under a h70

It would have been a little more interesting if it used 2 8mm heat pipes, i know it's designed for low powered CPU's but some of us like to put overpowered CPU's in small spaces :laugh:

I keep looking around for a suitable replacement for the 4 heat pipe stock AMD heat sink as i want to put my phenom 9850 in my htpc but it gets too hot, i don't really want to spend too much and the space for the heatsink is not very big so cuts out many options.

Something like this even with 3 8mm or 4 6mm i would assume could not cool that much better than the stock AMD one.

the key to these is how much better they are (or not) than the stock intel/amd coolers. for the price they would generally have to be a lot better and they never are.

That's exactly my problem, the 4 heat pipe stock AMD heatsink does quite well but in a small space gets pretty hot yet to buy something better that will fit in the same small space i have to shell out way more than i think is acceptable.

So this is only for the Intel sockets, not AMD. Pitty really. Would be nice if it had MX-3 or 4 instead of MX-2 but it is better than stock.

I'm a big fan of Arctic Cooling. Had a Freezer 7 Pro and it was fantastic for my OCed Core 2 E8400, but to be honest I don't really see the point in this thing. I can't see it being much better than a stock cooler. The stock cooling on CPUs is enough for if you don't plan on OCing it (especially on a lot of Intel chips where you can get 4GHz on stock). Even if you do plan on OCing in a tight space, this won't be THAT much better than your stock AMD/Intel HSF. Maybe the fan would be better, I don't know, but personally I'd just use stock cooling.

EDIT: On second look, there is a lot more metal on it than a stock Intel cooler, so I suppose it should be pretty good. Disregard my statement.
