This month, a true cooling giant is increasing ARCTIC's extensive range of high-performance CPU coolers: the multi-compatible dual tower cooler Freezer 50. Gloves off for the next round: ARCTIC's Freezer 50 TR successfully took on the challenge of taming the monster CPU, AMD's Ryzen Threadripper. Now, the Freezer 50 enters the ring with a broader attack. The distinctive design and the impressive performance remain, while its wide compatibility with current Intel and AMD CPUs is new.

The imposing dual-tower cooler is one of the most powerful air coolers that ARCTIC has developed. Equipped with six massive U-shaped, direct-touch heat pipes 104 aluminium fins and two fans, the Freezer 50 achieves the best heat dissipation and excellent cooling performance. A combination of a 120 and 140 mm P-Fans in push-pull configuration is used, producing strong airflow without compromising on volume—even at maximum speed, the Freezer 50 only reaches 0.4 sone.



In addition to its impressive performance, the Freezer 50 electrifies with its extraordinary—and individualized—optics: addressable RGB offers fully customizable lighting options.

The most important features at a glance:
  • Dual-tower design with 6 heatpipes for maximum performance
  • Compatible with Intel & AMD sockets
  • Addressable RGB for fully customizable illumination
  • Two pressure-optimized fans
  • Wide RPM Range for highest performance and low noise level
  • Easy mounting solution
  • MX-4 thermal paste included
Optional: Freezer 50 with A-RGB controller
The Freezer 50 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 Freezer 50 is available now at a price of $74.99 MSRP. For more information, visit the product page.

Last image. Side of the box too, albeit barely readable. And they claim to be 1ºC better than the NH-D15, no less. Bold.
There was a time when Arctic was modest and compared itself against to the actual upgrade they were sought after, the stock cooler.

Why would heat travel through a copper plate, but not through the copper of the heatpipes themselves?

Good luck with that. Arctic hasn't provided noise levels in dB for close to two decades now.
I like their no-frills coolers though: cheap and will beat the crap out of a stock cooler. No record breakers, but you don't expect that in the $35-50 range.

HWluxx already has a review.
Decent cooler with the usual flaw of Arctic's preference for proprietary fans...

Too bulky, too much plastic. Probably all in the name of RGBLED....

Heatpipes and fin stacks are a solved problem these day. Companies are just releasing the same basic design with random bolt-on plastic rubbish to try and make tech from two decades ago more profitable.

If you bought a Noctua 20 years ago you'd still be using it today with it's lifetime warranty, infinite supply of free socket mounting kits and choice of any fan thanks to its standard fan mounting; I've been doing that at home since the NH-U12 I bought for my Core2 duo.

While I agree that this might be an old design, but what did You expect from it? V10 F1 engine? They cant release same old design because no one will buy it even though it function as it should. Same goes with PC cases. Same goes with many other things. Speakers, sound card, PC Cases, water cooling fittings etc etc.

you have a threadripper cpu?
Can't speak for Vader but I have a farm of compact (and obsolete) TR 1950X boxen using Noctua NH-U9 TR4.

Two completely bog-standard fans per cooler with simple wire-clip retention, not pointless plastic proprietary crap.
