Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro ReviewFormer staff writer - February 28, 2007
Overall I would have to say that this is a decent performing cooler, with middle of the line cooling performance. But with its relatively low cost, you can't really ask for much more. The major thing that is noticeable with this cooler is the sound level is nearly inaudible when installed inside of your case and this is always a plus in my book. The fact that I had to work so hard to get it installed was a major turn off for me, but I think that this is a flaw with the LGA775 heatsink mounting method, unless there is another way that I am not familiar with. A bit more clearance on the cooler between the base plate and the start of the heatsink fins would have been nice as well, it would have helped to avoid the clearance issues on my motherboard. Overall, I can’t argue that this cooler is a good performer. With an attractive price for decent air cooling on a budget, don’t be afraid to pickup a Freezer 7 Pro, but be prepared to fiddle with the mounting lugs to get it secured properly.
- Low sound
- No vibration
- Mounting is awkward
