    Arctic showed of two nearly-identical CPU coolers, the Freezer i30 and Freezer A30. The two are identical till the point where the i30 is designed for Intel sockets only (LGA2011, LGA1155/1156), while the A30, for AMD sockets only (AM3+/AM3/AM2+/AM2). The two share a tower-type aluminum fin-stack heatsink design, capable of handling thermal loads of up to 320W.

    The heatsink uses four 8 mm thick exposed-copper heat pipes that make direct contact with the CPU at the base, and pass through the heatsink, which is then ventilated by a 120 mm PWM-controlled fan with a fancy-looking frame. Rubber standoffs attach the fan to the heatsink dampening vibrations. The retention clips come attached to the heatsink out of the box. A 0.5g syringe of Arctic MX-4 compound is included, while the coolers' base don't come with the compound pre-applied.

    I eagrly await to see AC's answer to Scythe's Yasya\Mugen3\Ninja3 coolers at the super low cost but yet top notch performance. The Freezer Xtreme was barly close to that

    Looks like standard mounting holes to me. The only difference to a regular 120 should be the fancy design, but that is purely eye-candy with no added functionality.
    I see no obvious reason why Arctic would want to make the fan non-user-changeable.

    EDIT: I checked on Arctic's website, and it said this:
    The F PWM fan is a regular-sized fan, no different from any other.

    Why are they calling it Freezer ? That thing can't freeze jack shit ! Another re-brand is what I see . Every one of these freezers look exactly the same apart from the fan . So the fan blades being what makes it get so cold if FREEZES ? Good GOD what is with them . They have the same number of Heat pipes on ALL OF THEM ! Just keep Re-branding the same thing put a white fan on it make the tin find a bit more loos looking . GOD !

    After emailing Arctic, I was told that those fans simply have a decorative faceplate on them, and you can use any 120mm fans you want, with or without the faceplate.
