Designed for Extreme Cooling Performance. The ARCTIC Liquid Freezer 120 has an outstanding cooling performance for CPU through a water cooling solution with 2 x F12 PWM PST fans, a 120 mm radiator and a powerful water pump. Efficient and Powerful. With a 49 mm deep radiator and 2 high airflow fans, the water cooler offers best in-class performance. Thereby, the water pump's latest motor technology and smooth tubes offer top performance at only 2 Watts power consumption. Optimal Heat Dissipation. Dual low noise 120 mm fans mounted on opposite sides of the radiator provide a great airflow. Here, the first fan pushes air through the radiator while the second fan pulls the air through it. Both are controllable with PST function to adjust the fan speed based on CPU temperature. Very Compatible. Liquid Freezer 120 fits in every standard PC case with 120 mm fan option. The water cooling solution is compatible with Intel and AMD sockets. Long Service Life and the Best Warranty. The Fluid Dynamic Bearing comes with an oil capsule that avoids lubricant leakage. Thus this bearing is as quiet as a sleeve bearing but comes with a significantly higher service life. We at ARCTIC also back the CPU cooler with a 6-year warranty and provide friendly, easy-to-reach support.

Top Customer Reviews
Oddly, the instructions recommend configuring the 6-fan cooler as a push-pull INTAKE (not exhaust) for maximum cooling. That contradicted what I initially thought -- I mean, why drive heated air through your case? Why not configure the cooler as a push-pull EXHAUST? But I followed Arctics recommendations nonetheless. The three 140-mm Corsair fans that came with the case are now configured as exhaust fans (two on the top, one on the back). The result is enormous airflow through the Corsair case.
Now that my build is done, I'm quite glad I bought this cooler.
* This cooler does an excellent job of cooling. During a 15-minute stress test of my gently overclocked Core i7-6700K, the highest temp I recorded was 61 degrees.
* This cooler is really quiet with the CPU at idle. And even during CPU stress testing, the noise level was excellent. (No roaring fans.) Indeed, most of the noise of my build is from the fans that came with my Corsair case. And those fans are quiet.
* There is no "pump" noise that I can detect. Indeed, when I turned on my rig for the first time, I had a panicked moment -- was the pump on? Did I forget to plug the cooler pins into the motherboard? It was that quiet. I've heard people complain about the pump noise with water cooling, but I can't hear any pump-related noise on this cooler.
* Price: yep, this thing is pricey. For most builds, I think the 120 or 240 versions of this cooler would suffice -- easily. I went with the 360 version because of my specific use case ... number-crunching, which can intermittently pin all CPU cores to 100%, sometimes for extended periods. (And it can be hard to predict when an analysis will do this.)
* Big: a 6-fan 360 cooler is .. well ... big. Make sure that your case has adequate room, especially if you configure this cooler with all 6 fans in push-pull (as I did).
* Slight irregularities in the radiator grill. Some of the intricate metal grilling on my radiator looks like it might have been damaged, perhaps during shipping. It doesn't seem to have affected cooling performance (see below), so I'm okay with that. Besides, in push-pull configuration, your radiator will be sandwiched between two sets of fans. So no one will see the radiator grilling anyway. ;-)
STRESS TEST RESULTS
My goal was to gain some confidence that my rig could run computationally intensive algorithms in parallel without damaging my CPU (or reduce it's lifespan).
Using MSI's "Overclock Genie", I obtained a gentle overclock of:
* CPU: 4.40 GHz with VCore voltage @ 1.32V
* RAM: 2400 Mhz at 1.344V.
A more aggressive overclock will probably not help me much, so I didn't push the overclock any harder (for now).
I run Linux on my rig, so my testing was done using "psensor" (for monitoring temps) and "cpuburn" for stressing the CPU. My ambient temp (as measured by my house thermostat) is approx 24C. At idle, my CPU temps were 26C.
To truly stress my CPU, I kept hyper-threading enabled in the BIOS. The stress test was to run eight instances of "burnP6" simultaneously, which pushed all 8 hyper-threads to 100%.
I ran the test for approximately 15 minutes. During the test, the CPU temps hovered around 58C +/- 2C. The recorded maximum CPU temp on any core was 61C over the 15 minute period. I stopped the stress test at 15 minutes because it became clear that the CPU temps were not trending higher. (And since my testing method was not rigorous, it seemed pointless to refine the estimates too much.)
Even during the stress testing, the 360 fans were relatively quiet. And the volume of air through the case was excellent.
If this review was helpful to anyone who must make a decision, then I am glad.
Live, Love, Linux =-)
With four fans included you get a great push-pull effect, although obviously that makes the total depth of the ensemble quite large. You'll need to check your case to see the best way to fit this in.
On the packaging and on reviews that I've seen the LGA 1366 platform is not mentioned as being supported. This cooler does indeed work just fine with an LGA 1366 motherboard (in my specific case i7-920 CPU, Asus x58 motherboard). Just use the standoffs for the 115X and you'll be good.
With careful positioning of the fans and routing the fan cables you can get a nice daisy chain effect that helps reduce cable clutter in the case and this also ensures that all fans are equally controlled from one source.
At full speed the fans can be noisy but typical speeds are quiet. The pump itself is very quiet with no noise at all.
Update 3/24/2016 after allowing Thermal Paste to cure and then applying overclocking and stress testing.
I could not get my CPU temperatures above 50 degrees C, which is about 20 degrees better than with my previous (Arctic) air cooler.
Once the stress test was over the temperatures reduced to 33 degrees in about 3 seconds.
Awesome heat removal capabilities and the fans remained quiet during the entire test.
****The person that claims "this cooler is very dangerous" did not read the directions. You can tell by the picture he has up of the pump misaligned. Follow the manufacturers instructions and you won't have this happen. Pretty simple really.***see the pic of the manual that I shared, and reference his pic of his PC; something's obviously wrong with the way he mounted it.***
The arctic 240 effectively cools the AMD 9590 so well, it's really quite impressive because the AMD 9590 CPU is known for being the hottest operating chip around. The 240 is really quite an exceptional liquid cooler.
4c idle; 47c full load - AMD 9590 OC to 5GHz
Having said that, if space is tight as in SFF iTX builds, this is a great AIO cooler. The fans run a bit loud but that is not much of an issue to me as overall cooling. For the price its hard to beat this if you can't fit a low profile air cooler and need to use liquid cooling. It is comparable to the corsair 120mm options in benchmarks but this is usually priced a bit cheaper.
Side note, the mounting bracket for intel 115* seems to be not very sturdy under clamping force. The arms started to bend when torquing, without using much force. It is securely seated and has passed many stress tests while not overheating. It just worries me that the arm bent so easily.
