ARCTIC Launches the Freezer 50 TR ARGB CPU Cooler for Ryzen Threadripper

ARCTIC, a leading manufacturer of low-noise PC coolers and components, today launched the latest in its well-respected Freezer series of CPU coolers, the Freezer 50 TR. An extremely powerful cooler for AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors, the ARCTIC Freezer 50 TR is a dual tower CPU cooler with eight heatpipes and two ARCTIC P-fans (for optimal airflow in push-pull configuration). As the first cooler of the Freezer family that comes equipped with Addressable RGB, it combines high performance with striking design.

"With the Freezer 50 TR, the target was simple yet hard to reach: we had to be the best air cooler in the market and be able to cope with the amazing wattage that the Threadripper can pull out," said Vincent Andre, Technical Director at ARCTIC. "Countless hours of design, simulation and testing were necessary, but I think we have reached our target. With A-RGB integration, the Freezer 50 TR is not only the most powerful ARCTIC air cooler to date, it's also the first ever with lighting effects."
The large surface of the Freezer 50 TR's heat sink, combined with its U-shaped direct touch heatpipes, ensure highly efficient heat dissipation and high cooling performance. The built-in 120 and 140 mm P-fans are optimized for high static pressure and, through their wide speed range, guarantee effective and quiet cooling of all AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors with 32 or more cores. Even with the largest versions, the contact surface of the radiator completely covers the dies.

But it's not just the performance that impresses - the design of the Freezer 50 TR, with thirteen autonomously controllable addressable RGB LEDs, is also striking. For ease of use, the system is compatible with the typical A-RGB standards of leading motherboard manufacturers. Consequently, the Freezer 50 TR can be synchronized with the lighting of other hardware components and fully illuminated either directly via the A-RGB mainboard connection or via an external controller. The Freezer 50 TR comes with an optional in-house developed A-RGB controller for users whose motherboards do not have an A-RGB connector. The controller can be freely placed in the housing, allowing for control of the effects and color design via a convenient remote control.

Availability
The product is available now on the market and on Amazon at a price of £ 59.99 MSRP. The Freezer 50 TR with A-RGB Controller is expected to be available in early November.

1.2kg/3lbs? How do you install that, do you prop it with a stick or something?

The price point is neat, even if it doesn't really matter after you've forked out the cash for a Threadripper.

On Threadripper the cooler is screwed to the socket, so no need. They have some strange mounts though that doesn't seem to go straight into the socket, but rather needs to be attached to some extra bracket first, which seems stupid.


Edit: Here we go, the missing link.

So what, if it's screwed to the socket it won't bend the motherboard?

Genuinely curious, as I usually buy ~$200 CPU that can be cooled using smaller heatsinks.

What's there to review? It's Arctic and that means (slightly) below average performance at a low price, which translates into great bang for the buck, great for running at stock or at a mild overclock.

And how you intend to screw that thing on? Screwdriver will teleport through the fins? The opening is in the middle.

While i disagree with this statement, i completely understand where it comes from. Many users have different view points on how coolers should be tested.
Some want noise regulated (like i do), some want out-of-box no-touch metrics, some just rely on generic heat-pad results (style frostytech).

I'm sure enough data will surface regarding this one to let people know toughly how good it is.

Bending this incredibly large and reinforced socket and board will take some tremendous effort. Nothing any air cooler can come close to.

No need for teleportation. You attach the heatsink before sliding the center fan in.

I've been using the Arctic Freezer series in all my main rigs since Core2 in 2008. Excellent quality, and installation is always a breeze.

The non-standard fans have always been mildly concerning to me, but I've yet to have one fail in that time, and they also sell replacements on their website.

It's generally how replies work.

The spec sheet also shows a picture of the heatsink mounting hardware with the fan removed. Plenty of room.

I think more fins would help instead of a 3rd fan, 2 is more than enough.
