Product Description

Style: Freezer 13

Superior Cooling Perfomance
A 92 mm PWM fan in combination with double-sided 6 mm copper heatpipes and a 45-fin heatsink enable the Freezer 13 to deliver high performance and improve heat transfer from the CPU. It excels in cooling efficiency in a Hexus comparison review with the stock cooler as well as competitors.

Low Noise
Freezer 13 is one of the quietest coolers in the market, according to a test by Hexus.
Thanks to the PWM control, the fan speed adjusts according to the CPU temperature and thus the noise level remains at an absolute minimum which qualifies it as a silent cooler.

Multi-Compatibility
Freezer 13 features wide compatibility with AMD and Intel sockets. Its simple mounting system is designed to fit all current CPU platforms.

It is compatible with AMD Sockets FM2, FM1, AM3+, AM3, AM2+, AM2, 939 and 754; Intel Sockets 1366, 1156, 1155, 1150 and 775.

Easy Installation
The unique push-pin mounting system offers a hassle-free installation in minutes and excellent stability. Its fibre reinforced retention module is strong enough to make PCs with this cooler transportation proof. The pre-applied ARCTIC MX-4 high performance thermal compound shortens installation time further.

Customer Reviews

Pros: Fan is quiet, and the cooler performs very well for the pricepoint.
Zoo pet
When at IDLE the System temp. was about the same for both coolers but the Arctic kept it a good -5 C. cooler under 100% LOAD.

My case is medium sized and this cooler fit perfectly inside and it did not block any crucial slots on my motherboard.

Style Name: Freezer 13 Verified Purchase
Works great for my Phenom II x4 965 S2. Slow shipping but, the product surpassed expectations. Dropped idle from 42c-29c and full load from 65c-45c. Installation was difficult in holding the HSF down while screwing in, but that could just be my Case/Mobo setup. The overall procedure was incredibly simple tho, 2 brackets, 2 screws. Actually this fixed many BSOD and freeze problems i had from an overheat problem that could not be detected with software. Didn't even replace the pre-applied compound, had to on Accelero L2 Pro for HD5770, but that's a whole 'nother story! Definitely recommend this product for Phenom II x4 965 BE

Style Name: Freezer 13 Pro Verified Purchase
It has on average cooled my CPU by 10 degrees celsius. I have a Phenom II 965 (stock settings)
Stock HS Idle: 37-39 degrees C Load: 51-55 degrees C
Arctic 13 pro Idle: 28-31 degrees C Load: around 44 degrees C
*Load meaning me playing Battlefield BC2

Plus it's very quiet. The stock fan was the loudest thing in my box, but now it's my video card (8800GT). I have a new card (Gigabyte HD6850) coming in the mail. Hopefully it'll be quieter and then my whole system will be whispering.

When I OC my CPU, I will try to post new temps.

If you have a case where there's a top exhaust fan and the PSU is on the bottom, this cooler is ideal. The HS can only blow up or down the case.
One hint on install (which was simple and easy for AMD3), use a long magnetic screwdriver or place the screw in the hole before seating it. I didn't do this and I dropped the screw under the HS. I had to reseat the HS. I didn't reapply tim so hopefully this won't come to bite me. But things seems to be staying cool. Also, I recommend tightening the screws once in awhile. I won't know if you need to but I figure after awhile the screws might loosen so I am going to check its tightness from time to time.
I had no problem placing the HS over my ram (and I'm using the slot closest to CPU, but I don't think I'll be able to take out the ram without removing HS.

Overall, I'm very satisfied. It looks good and it works well.

Now if Amazon can get their (free)shipping faster!

Style Name: Freezer 13 Verified Purchase
There are so many options for aftermarket CPU coolers, it can make your head hurt looking for them. I was previously running a water cooled setup, and decided I absolutely hate maintenance and high costs with a water cooled system. That being said, I researched and found Artic Cooling heatsink fans. Everyone seemed to love the AC freezer pro 7, but there wasn't a whole lot of reviews on this unit. So I went with my gut and decided to run this in my system with my i7 960. I can tell you right now that my CPU never gets higher than 70C under full load, which I find impressive coming from a liquid cooled setup.

Okay, so lets talk about form factor now. The packaging was actually pretty economical and I guess "green"? In other words there was no box within a box, which we see is pretty common with computer components. The heat sink itself is about as big as a standard coffee mug. It might be too tall for small cases, but it fit inside my mid atx case with 2 inches of clearance between itself and my side panel. My RAM has about half an inch of clearance from the heat sink fan. You'll notice by the product photos that there is a triangular cut on the outer edge of the fins. AC did this to make the screwing to the stand a little more tolerable. It is kind of awkward screwing this to your mother board because of the cramped space, but I survived. The fan it comes with is really quiet, but that quiet makes it low powered. This can be good or bad, I have no problems with it.

I like this heat sink fan and I will not hesitate to get another Artic Cooling product. It looks great inside my case and works better than most highly acclaimed brands. If you want a great heat sink fan, this one will not disappoint you.

Style Name: Freezer 13 Verified Purchase
This heatsink/fan is very effective. My idle and load temps reduce by 12 degree centigrade when it is seated properly. Not a component for the faint of heart to install. On an AMD AM3+ socket, the installation was easier then a similar intel socket but still no piece of cake. For simplicity's sake I ended up taking out one stick of RAM, though it was possible to run the machine with the fourth one wedged underneath, but it was scary because the RAM heat sink was bending the electronic circuitry unnaturally. The fan directs most of the airflow into your power supply. If you run it under load for a while this could affect overall system performance. The most I've ever recorded the power supply at with this setup is 110 Fahrenheit though I'm sure it could go higher. It's very quiet though, unnaturally so. You may not even be certain that it is working at times.
The preapplied thermal grease is a joy.

Style Name: Freezer 13 CO
Pros: Fan is quiet, and the cooler performs very well for the pricepoint. The dual-ball bearing fan should outlast the rest of the machine without changes in noise or performance.

Cons: large; be sure to measure the space available.

I've trusted Arctic for years. This "Continuous Operation" CO model replaces the Hydro-Dynamic bearing of the normal Freezer 13 with dual ball bearings. Ball bearings on both sides of the rotor is a little more expensive, but it means the fan can run 24x7 and it will last much longer before it starts making noise or failing. (The Warranty is 6 years!) The Freezer 13 CO is a great cooler, and this version is identical except for the more professional fan. Read all the reviews for that model since they apply equally here. When you take into account sound, cooling, reliability and price there really isn't a better choice out there. You pay for what you get. It is Great among all the cooler I have bought.
