Additional Fan for More Cooling Capacity
Two low noise 120 mm fans mounted on opposite sides of the heatpipe provide a great airflow. The first fan pushes air through the heatsink, the second fan pulls the air out of the heatsink.
Improved Heat Dissipation
The Freezer 33 eSports Edition has off-centered heat pipes that disperse the heat in a more efficient than the centered ones of its predecessors. Also, the layout of the 49 aluminium fins creates micro vortices that boost the airflow and circulate it around the heatpipes.
Maximum Performance for Highest-End CPUs
The contact surface of the Freezer 33 eSports Edition heatpipes does not cover the full protection cap, but, more importantly, are right where the processor DIE is and cover even the largest versions (18 core) completely.
Optimised Fan Design
We further optimised the fan blade design to get a higher airflow at lower noise generation. With the range of 200 to 1 800 RPM the fans of the Freezer 33 eSports Edition are controllable with the PWM Sharing Technology to regulate the fan speed as needed.

I tried liquid coolers and the Noctua NH-U12S TR4-SP3 which is more expensive . I ran many tests to compare all, and this one is the best.
I originally was eyeing a larger (720 gram), more expensive heatsink ($50) , when I noticed that Freezer 33 TR was available for $25, on Amazon, from Arctic Direct. At that price, this medium sized heatsink became a very good choice. (I estimate that this heatsink alone, without the fan, weighs about 576 grams.) Besides the price, this Arctic heatsink had the advantage that it could be mounted using the motherboard's existing backplate. (The other heatsink required removing the original backplate and replacing it with a proprietary one.)
One has to visit Arctic's web site to find installation instructions, but after looking them over, I was able to install the heatsink, easily, without any need to remove the motherboard from the case. The heatsink and fan do not interfere with the closest RAM slot, but the heatsink is fairly tall. (My computer case measures 7 5/8 inches wide (194 mm), and I have about 9 mm of clearance between the side cover and the top of the Freezer's fan clip.)
I followed Arctic's directions on how to apply the thermal paste to this heatsink, but, in retrospect, I probably could have used less thermal compound. Typically I would have applied a small amount and spread it with a piece of plastic, cut from an old credit card. Fortunately, the supplied MX-4 thermal paste is not very thick and any excess paste should be squeezed out over time.
It hardly seems fair to compare this heatsink to the stock Wraith Stealth. The Stealth uses a 90 mm fan on top of a round aluminum heatsink that is only 20 mm tall (about 3/4 of an inch), measured without the fan. I was reluctant to run something like Prime95 for more than a minute or two, because the temperatures were approaching 80 deg. C.
When first examining the Freezer 33 TR, I was a little concerned about the narrowness of its base. It is elongated (52 mm), to accommodate Threadripper processors, but it is only 30 mm wide. The four direct contact heatpipes, together, are only 24 mm wide. However, Arctic reassures users that they are centered over the processor's cores. (The Ryzen 5 2600 heat spreader measures 38 by 38 mm.)
In practice, I am finding this heatsink to be a good choice. It is a good match, price-wise, with the budget system upgrade that I had in mind. With the processor at its default settings and running Prime95, I am seeing temperatures level out around 58 deg. C. (room temperature of 26 deg. C.). However, the heatsink will struggle when overclocking and boosting the core voltage. At 1.35 volts, running Prime95, the temperatures were over 70 deg. C.; keeping the voltage to around 1.275 volts, the temperatures stayed below 70 deg. C.
One thing I noticed is that the fan speed tends to be much higher than the 1800 rpm maximum that Arctic describes. Setting the fan controller to full speed in the BIOS, the fan tops out around 2960 rpm, which is audible above the rest of the system's fans. Fortunately,the fan does not need to work that hard under most circumstances.
[In the meanwhile, I found this on the Arctic web site: "Current mainboards are developed with 1- or 2-phase motored fans in mind to measure the fan speed. As a result, the indicated RPM of ARCTIC fans with a 3-phase motor will be around 1.5x higher than the actual speed of the fan."]
All in all, I anticipate that I'll be making use of this cooler over an extended period of time. I can overclock the Ryzen 5 2600 comfortably to 3.9 GHz at 1.275 volts, and I am not that concerned about trying to squeeze another 200 to 300 MHz out of it, by pushing the voltage up to 1.4 volts.
Sidebar: The 2600's base speed is 3.4 GHz with boost speeds up to 3.9 GHz. With all cores under load, a steady boost speed of around 3.65 GHz is maintained. The stock voltage is 1.1275 volts. Efforts to overclock the Ryzen 5 2600 typically top out around 4.1 to 4.2 GHz, if voltages are kept below 1.45 volts.
The pictures below compare the Freezer 33 TR to AMD's Wraith Stealth cooler. Note the relative narrowness of the Freezer's base, especially the direct contact heatpipes. One picture shows the clearance between the front of the Freezer's fan and the first RAM slot on the motherboard.
Do you want a safe overclock at 4ghz?
Do you not want to spend 80 to 150 bucks on a cooler on top of the TR price+motherboard price?
Do you want easy to follow instructions and an easy to install kit?
THIS IS YOUR ANSWER.
This thing is awesome. I've been using it on my TR clocked at 4ghz for the last two months. Rock solid, and quiet. Can't recommend this enough. Well done Arctic.

Firstly - the promo pictures are deceptive - even this "larger base version" it does not cover the TR lid at all - just in the middle. Even the "official"/server cooler covers the entire CPU. While the dies may be in the middle you'd expect the based-plate to cover the entire CPU.
The mounting system is "archaic" IMHO with different and somewhat thin bars and screws while more expensive coolers have simpler mounts. Just compare the "official" version with 4 sprint-screws at the edges and no fully mounts. Could they not just design a specific mount for TR?
The 4 pipes are thick but in the end there are just 4 compared to more expensive coolers' 6 thus keep your TR at stock levels unless you want thermal issues. I'd expect a TR cooler to be "better endowed" than the standard Ryzen cooler not just match it. A 2nd fan should also be included (mount is included) for a TR system.
MX4 paste - very little of it - included is perhaps bare minimum for a TR build. Better have some money left to invest in some.
So why buy it? If if you were to say mi.. I mean search for co... err shiny things - with 50% utilisation this cooler is just fine and works well for the money. Not a lot of point to spend 2x as much at such levels. Now if you're thinking of over-clocking and pushing into 100% range at least a 2nd fan and preferably a more substantial cooler with a bigger base-plate and more pipes is likely needed...

Dieser CPU Lüfter ist sehr wertig, bis jetzt unschlagbar und kann locker mit einem teureren Markenhersteller mithalten :D Hatte meinen Ryzen 5 1600 auf 3,5 Ghz im Idle 28°C und unter Last in Prime 95 max 52°C. Du hörst Ihn in meinem nicht gedämmten Gehäuse so gut wie gar nicht! (Da war meine Pumpe von meiner All in One Wakü von Bequiet lauter....) Sind jetzt alles nur Kurzwerte und werde falls sich noch was tun sollte, gerne meine Rezession updaten! :)
Bisdahin vielen Dank und top Cpu Kühler!
The Arctic Freezer comes packed in quite a compact box for its size. It comes with the fans pre-attached in the box, both of which need to be removed for installation.
The instruction manual comes in the form of a small card with a QR code sticker on it that contains a url to lookup the manual online. If you don't have a second device to view the manual on, this can be annoying.
Also in the box are the attachments for the different sockets, in appropriately labelled bags.
A disappointment was the fact they provided thermal compound in the form of a sachet small, which proved a lot harder to spread straight than a small syringe-based system.
Installation proved tricky for an AM4 socket.
You have to remove the fans to be able to attach the brackets to the sides of the heatsink. When those are attached, it involves trying to screw it on, while keeping it in place and stopping the backplate from trying to fall off the back of the motherboard.
The fans can only be re-attached facing a specific direction, which means you can't accidentally create a pull-pull or push-push air system.
With it all installed, it does a good job. My CPU is sitting just 4°C above ambient room temperature.
I'm not sure if it works so well because the black helps radiate the heat, but it is a very efficient cooler. The fan is exceptional quality, smooth and silent. Not sure who its made by, but it's quiet and moves a ton of air without sounding like a 777 even at high rpm. I wasn't sure about getting it with no user reviews, but I'm glad I did. Perfect for my gaming system.
