ARCTIC's Freezer 13 CPU cooler hasn't been out for too long, but that isn't stopping ARCTIC from releasing a new flagship version of it. The ARCTIC Freezer 13 PRO CPU cooler builds on the design of the Freezer 13 by adding a new technology it calls Cross-Blow. What makes the Cross-Blow technology unique is that ARCTIC has added a 50mm PWM fan to the base of the cooler which generates airflow to cool down the Northbridge and other chipset parts. The Freezer 13 PRO can generate up to 300W of cooling capacity which is far more than enough for even the hottest running processors. There are four U-shaped 8mm copper heatpipes on the Freezer 13 PRO that lead up into the aluminum fins. Cooling it all is a 120mm PWM fan that generates 49.7 CFM. The Freezer 13 PRO uses push pins to install on to your motherboard plus ARCTIC has pre-applied some of its MX-4 thermal compound to the base which will make installation that much easier. The cooler is compatible with all Intel and AMD sockets, including Intel's latest 1155 socket.

The ARCTIC Freezer 13 PRO CPU cooler will launch at $54.90 or €39.90. No word on how soon it will launch, but it is covered by a six year warranty.

300W?! Jeez, that's a huge number. I don't even think the Noctua NH-D14 makes that claim. Pics or it didn't happen! LOL

I hope you're kidding.. the Silver Arrow and Archon beat the N-DH14..... This Freezer Pro will probably fall short, but would love to see tests :)

Check XS, TPU or OCN, all have repeatedly shown that the OC3D review was flawed, from the beginning he had an issue with the simplistic mounting system, while the Noctua's system is even simpler, the TR isn't complicated. The SA and Archon still out perform the NDH14

you're totally right I had old information, however this arctic cooler may be a breakthrough if what they claim is true.
