Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 Review


Testing and Setup:

Testing of the heatsink will involve applying a load simulated by Prime95, using small FFTs in stock and overclocked scenarios. Both idle and load temperatures will be recorded. Load temperatures will be the maximum value displayed in RealTemp after running eight threads in Prime95 for one hour, and idle temperatures will be the minimum recorded value by RealTemp with no computer usage after one hour. The temperature values for each of the four cores will be averaged and displayed in the graphs below. The ambient temperature is held at a constant 22.5 °C throughout testing of the Freezer 13, as well as the comparison heatsinks. All the data shown in the graphs is in degrees Celsius. The included thermal paste from Arctic Cooling will be used during testing, and thermal pastes as packaged from the other coolers were used with each heatsink, respectively. The fan on the Freezer 13 will be run at full speed for these tests.

Testing Setup:

Comparison Heatsinks:








The Freezer 13 held up fairly well, though it seems to fall apart under the overclocked load scenario. As the results show, the Freezer 13 is less effective under heavy load situations, but it does exceptionally well for its price on top of a stock clocked i7 920 processor.
