Arctic Announces FREEZER 33 TR Cooler for AMD Ryzen Threadripper

Update: Corrected socket compatibility. This is a specially-designed cooler by Arctic for AMD's HEDT platform, As such, it offers limited compatibility with CPUs of lower die sizes, which means it's only compatible with TR4, AM4, LLGA2011(v3) and LGA2066 sockets.

Arctic announced the Freezer 33 TR, a tower-type CPU air cooler, designed for AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors, with out of the box support for AMD socket TR4/SP3r2. The cooler comes in two variants based on color - black with red accents, and black with silver accents. The cooler features a conventional tower-type design, in which four 6 mm-thick copper heat-pipes, which make direct contact with the CPU at the base, pass through an aluminium fin-stack, which is ventilated by an included fan.

Compared to other Freezer 33 variants, the TR variant features an elongated base, for higher coverage of the Threadripper integrated heatspreader (IHS). The aluminium fins and heat-pipes feature matte-black nickel-plating. The included fan takes in 4-pin (PWM) input, spinning between 200 to 1,800 RPM. The cooler can cope with thermal loads of up to 320W, which makes it good for CPU TDP rating up to 200W, according to Arctic. Besides socket TR4, the cooler also supports AMD's AM4 socket, while Intel support stands at their LGA2011(v3), LGA2066. Available now, and backed by a generous 10-year warranty, the Freezer 33 TR is priced at 47.99€.

Interesting. Tiny air-coolers. The 7900x needs at least a nh-d15 and this isn't even a dual-fan model! Could the nh-u14s tr4 and the freezer 33 tr4 be good enough for a 4ghz 1950x oc? Perhaps with a second fan?

I like the enclosed tower sides. It's nice to handle as you don't cut yourself on fins and the air passing through is more focused on exhaust.

I wonder where heatpipes pass across IHS depending on cores underneath. Though I've never seen any direct contact heatpipes this flat which is nice.

Since when 4x 6mm pipes can cope with 320W of heat?

There wasn't mentioned in what temps. :rolleyes:

At least the color theme looks great.

The extra mountingholes for the second fan are there, maybe arctic will release a PLUS version with 2 fans, too.

Didn't catch my eye that does they include the mounting accessories for another fan. If so, then it would be cool (pun intended).

I'm very skeptical about this cooler and it's capacity to tame such high end cpu's. It may however have some secrete sauce in it that we are not aware of.

You can say that again, I cut my thumb deep years back on my Noctua D14 while reinstalling it on my X58 platform, great but deadly cooling. :pimp:

This is a nice simple looking cooler, love the colour scheme, just amazed on how it can cool up to 320w :confused:

A red Arctic cooler? That's new.

That's because they used RGB on it. Red Great Bastard cooler. Gotta keep up with the trends :D

I think you are mistaken, AMD's new CPUs are not known to run hot.

Still 180W of heat at stock, the heat spread area of the cpu is large tho, that might help. You will not be overclocking with this cooler for sure, but lets wait for some reviews, hopefully techpowerup will do it :toast:

16 cores @ 180W isn't bad IMO.

At least when thinking that what those older AMD's ran hot as hell.

Here at Finland we called those 220W FX's "sauna"s. :D

Like how AMD tested 295x2 with one little 12cm radiator right?

H90 isn't good enough for stock threadripper, but not by a huge margin. A mediocre 120mm AIO might be good enough and a freezer 33 TR should allow for some overclocking.

I hope this doesn't burn someone's house down when they overclock TR using this wimpy little cooler. This looks no better than a Hyper 212 Evo with a longer contact patch, and the contact area still doesn't look wide enough to cover the die areas 100%. Maybe good enough for the 8 core 1900x, but I don't see this working well with a 1950x or 1920x, even at stock speeds. Even 1900x has 180w TDP, with half the cores?. Installing TR in a mini-fridge for any OCing is not out of the question. A $50 cooler for a $1000 or $800 CPU - I know that AMD guys are cheapskates, but this is ridiculous...that's a joke, crazy AMD guy, so don't come and burn MY house down.

The lid also conducts heat, so even if it isn't wide enough, that's fine. Also, the freezer 33 non-tr (worse fan I believe and smaller base) was already 30% better than a 212x (slightly better 212 evo supposedly). Freezer 33 tr is a bit better, so might finally be on-par with a u14s, although the u14s tr4 also has a larger base and may be a bit better still. I want a liqtech tr4 240mm/360mm AIO, but if an air-cooler can do 4ghz oc, on the 1920x at least and maybe with a second fan (plus model or upgrade kit with mounting?), I'm definitely getting one. Worth it just for the lower risk for the 4-5 years my cpu has to last. Definitely no leaking then!

Remember the thing called thermal throttling. ;)

Pretty sure you have no clue what you are talking about. Do you want to see what burns down the house ?

Here is a link to the mess called Skylake X - http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/-intel-skylake-x-overclocking-thermal-issues,5117-4.html

And below is the example of heating issue including VRM temps and throttle issues.

That board has 12 phases and 300 W over 12 phases at 1.2 V is around 20 amps for each phase ... and it seems either a) those mosfets at 105C loaded with 20 amps lose their efficiency and skylake x throttles b) they heat up the whole socket and cpu throttles
Either way those boards are ready for phases using integrated power stages that can do 30 amps up to 130C ... beats me why they cheaped out in that area when those are norm these days

Each VRM phase for the VCore or Input Voltage and System Agent uses an IR3555M 60A fully integrated PowIRstage which are best in class. Each PWM phase is doubled by an IR3599 doubler/quadruple.

The motherboard's VRM is also using best in class power stages and PWM, but I am unsure of the current capabilities of the inductors, and the VRM is five phases doubled to ten.
