    Arctic Cooling has a new CPU cooler available called the Freezer Extreme that features 8 heat pipes, 226 fins and pre-applied MX-2 thermal paste. It also features a push pin installation which eliminates the need for screws. It is constructed out of aluminum, keeping the weight to a minimum and the heatpipes act as a stabilzer for the large number of fins on this beast. Arctic Cooling estimates a February launch and they are currently in production. Also on display was the Arctic RC active memory cooler that should be available in roughly two months.

    Ok, if the Extreme can mount on my s939 board with the fan blowing out the back, which by the looks of it, I think it can! Finally, a big heatsink by AC! I'm getting it the second I get word it's for sale.:D

    Nice, depending on price and performance, I may get one of these when they come out, unless I get enough cash for a water cooler.

    You need a very roomy mobo for this one, I doubt if it matches up with the Thermalright Ultra 120.

    Maybe not, but it will come close, and probably be half the price to boot.

    Well, the Scythe Infinity (1kg) with the push-pins slowly increased the temperature difference between the two cores to about 5-6 degrees (vs. 1-3 degrees which is normal). It was mounted with the mobo out of the case (because you couldn't push completely 2 pins with the mobo inside the case because of the fins and the I/O plate being in the way).

    After 2 months mounted with the push pins, I took it out when I had the parts for the bolts+springs diy mounting, and when I checked the thermal paste in-print I found out the cooler had been slowly sagging (it looked like a trapeze with the small base on the upper part of the IHS). So that's how well plastic push pins and big coolers work together :ohwell:.

    Yes, because water is easy to install.

    Id love to get one of these. And AC's cooling products are some of the top notch in the industry and damn good prices. They dont stupid price like Thermalright, Thermaltake (Big Typhoon anyone) Zalman and them. Best price performance cooler out there, period.

    two years ago when the artic pro first came out it was top notch.. its just others have gotten bigger.. this is artics reply.. get bigger too.. it aint their fault.. blame the reviewers and those that want "extreme"..

    basically u dont have to buy the "biggest".. thow some quite clearly think u do..

    the old freezer pro is still plenty good enough..

    I agree with you trog. For no bigger than my OCZ Vendetta cooler is, I am impressed by what it accomplishes. Bigger isn't always better, we will just have to see the price/performance.
