Arctic Cooling Freezer 13Nov 7th, 2010 | By Simon
The following system was installed and used to gather temperatures:
- CPU: Intel 661
- MB: MSI H55M-ED55
- RAM: Crucial 4GB kit (2GBx2), 240-pin DIMM, DDR3 PC3-10600 memory module
- Video: Integrated
- HD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB
- Case: Silverstone LC19
- PSU: 120W FSP Group (integrated into LC19)
- OS: Microsoft Windows 7
- Ambient Temperature: 21-22C
- Comparison Coolers:
- Arctic Cooling Freezer 13
- Arctic Cooling Freezer 11 LP
- Silverstone NT07 1156
- Stock Intel 1156 Cooler
To achieve full load, OCCT was run for two hours and the average peak temperature was recorded. I would then kill the OCCT process and let the system idle for another two hours before recording the idle temperatures. Temperature readings were taken with HWMonitor Pro.
The Freezer 13 is the biggest cooler that I have and it definitely provides the most cooling potential, destroying the competition in every aspect. Even with an overclocked quad core CPU, the Freezer 13 will have no problems keeping your system cool.
From a noise perspective, in an open air environment the fan provides a constant hum. It is bearable even when only two feet away from the fan. If mounted inside a case, the noise levels will drop considerably and it would be hard to notice the Freezer 13.
