At about $36, the Freezer 13 is a very good choice for system builders and other individuals who do not plan to overclock their processors excessively. However, do note that these load scenarios are synthetic and a computer will rarely see 100% across each core for hours at a time, unless the user is running a distributed computing application like Folding@Home, SETI, etc. That being said, the processor should not exceed the load temperatures recorded in the results, which are satisfactory by themselves. The installation is a breeze and does not require any complex procedures, components, or even rear access to the motherboard. Arctic Cooling did a great job with this cooler even though it is not a top performer when compared to high end heatsinks. One of the categories that we do not have a direct result for is price versus performance, which the Freezer 13 would certainly be a winner.
- Easy installation for Intel and AMD
- Subtle looks
- Performance degrades in overclocked scenario
