Let's face it, most humans don’t like cold weather. Your fingers and toes get numb, you can’t just start your car and go in fear that your engine oil has gotten a little too thick and has lost viscosity. So what do you do? You sit and wait until the engine warms up, and now you have missed that important meeting. Now if I was talking to you about CPUs, we would be speaking about the exact opposite. CPUs love the cold, and the colder they are, the more you can tinker with them. There are a plethora of cooling options to choose from, including phase change and water cooling, but those alternatives can get expensive for the average Joe. Many of us seem to choose the less expensive alternative, which is a heatsink and fan.
Arctic Cooling is producing an alternative to the more expensive methods of cooling your CPU with its Freezer Pro 64, a heatsink and fan setup which also includes thermal compound. The Freezer Pro 64 was created to be used with AMD Athlon64 and Opteron systems.
“ARCTIC COOLING is a leader in creating thermal cooling solution for personal computer systems that enable CPU (Central Processing Unit), GPU (Graphic Processing Unit) and PC-case cooling while, reducing the noise level. ARCTIC COOLING has been working with globally recognized companies in the graphics industry i.e. ASUS, Sapphire, PowerColor, MSI. Through these partnerships ARCTIC COOLING is privileged in gaining latest know-how about graphics for developing new cooling solutions.”
The heatsink comes packaged in a black box that clearly shows a picture of what’s inside and contains some specifications. I like the way the "C" in the Arctic Cooling logo surrounds the picture of the heatsink.
