IntroductionARCTIC (Formerly Arctic Cooling) has been around for a while, they were one of the first companies to come out with a tower cooler that both did a good job and ran quietly.
That was the Freezer 7 / Freezer 64, a very good cooler for it's time.
Since then they have made a number of cooling products for CPUs and GPUs, all of them quite good. Previously I reviewed Arctic's new top line cooler the Freezer 13 Pro, I found it to be an excellent cooler, you can find that review here.
Today I'm testing out their new mid range CPU cooler, the Freezer 13 Limited Edition
The Freezer 13 Limited Edition has four 6mm heatpipes soldered to the solid copper base, then heading upwards through a large array of aluminum heatsink fins. The whole thing has been coated with a "Titanium Black" coating that looks quite nice.The fan on the front is a 92mm job, colored a dark silvery color to match the rest of the heatsink.
The immediately obvious feature of this heatsink is it's relatively small size, it will have no issues fitting into any case of vaguely normal size, and should have plenty of clearance for tall ram heatsinks as well.
If the performance can match the looks, Arctic has a winner here.
