    Offering the enthusiast market one more high-end air cooling solution to choose from, Swiss company Arctic Cooling today announced Freezer XTREME, a twin tower cooler that's said to dissipate efficiently up to 160W. The heatsink consists of 102 fins, 8 heatpipes, 120mm PWM controlled fan, and design that resemble the beloved Tuniq- Tower 120 cooler. The fan itself spins from 800 rpm to 1500 rpm, while keeping the air flow up to 60.7 m3/h at max rpm. Arcic Cooling also supplies the cooler with their high-performance MX-2 thermal compound. The cooler weights in 608 g and can be mounted on both Intel Socket 775 and AMD Socket AM2+, AM2 and 939 motherboards. The Freezer Xtreme is offered with a 6-year limited warranty. It will be available in July 2008. The MSRP is US$39.95 or 25.95€.

    I need something to replace my AF64pro... unfortunately it covers 2 of my ram slots, and I bet this will cover all the slots... bummer.

    what ever you do dont drop the case when going to a lan or you may hear "snap crackel crunch" and sware about the broken foot then start crying when you realise the broken mobo,cpu, ect.....


    btw it dose look good, but i wonder if it will do much like all those other monster coolers :(

    Hopefully this thing's got a nice thin copper base so its performance comes close to an HDT cooler. Nice price for it, too. Could be a tad lower, though, but it will drop.

    Shoot, no need to be lower. Arctic Cooling offers a great bang for buck for their awesome coolers. This thing is pretty big too. I doubt Ill trade in my Xigmatek HDT s1283 for it though. Pretty awesome nonetheless.

    wonder how this compares to the ultra 120 and IFX 14 coolers, because the Scythe Cooler that looks like this one performed worse than the 120.

    Mine is 460g and already bolted on, push pins are bad and even worse for 608g. But it does make it cheaper? and easy installation, unless you happen to have a backplate one already :) Mod it for bolt on installation and it could be great. Will be interesting to see a review even though I have no use for one now.

    I had to make a custom plate for the Thermaltake Typhoon after the weight of it started to physically pull my board off its sockets!

    After doing that, i promised myself ill always have a bracket. 400 grams = bracket.

    BTW, the Freezer Extreme would look sexy in my rig.

    does this use a flate milled base, or just the bare heatpipe thing that the xigmatech uses?

    i think they would use a flatbase as the heatpipes didnt prove but a pain for contact due to the gapping.

    I'm not sure why any of the larger coolers come with push pins. It's just not smart. That's been my only dig with Xigmatek. A cooler that good, should not insult itself with f'in push pins!
