The new CPU cooler incorporates an innovative Cross-Blow
technology to provide unmatched cooling performance
for professional systems. The Cross-Blow technology is
cooling down the Northbridge and voltage regulators on
the main board specifically. Equipped with an additional 50
mm PWM-controlled fan at the base of the CPU cooler, this
extra downward blowing fan would help generating airflow
to other chipset parts. This, thus, dramatically lowers the
temperature of the surrounding components near the CPU.

Superior in its ground-breaking engineering design, the Freezer 13
PRO overpowers its competitors by generating up to 300W of cooling
capacity. Featuring an ultra-quiet 120 mm PWM-controlled fan with
four U-shaped 8mm copper heatpipes, the Freezer 13 PRO is all set for
inaudible and massive heat dissipation. The mega-sized CPU cooling fan
guarantees adequate airflow through the aluminum fins in the heatsink.
Such meticulously engineered mechanism effectively and efficiently
transfers the emitted heat away from the core of the CPU.
The entire installation process of the Freezer 13 PRO is very
simple. The unique mounting system via push pins offers
excellent stability. With a fiber reinforced retention module,
the plastic frame is strong enough to sustain the heavy
weight of the CPU cooler. The pre-applied ARCTIC MX-4
thermal compound guarantees high thermal conductivity
while making the installation a quick and clean process as
Aiming to cope with constant changes in PCs and massive heat output, this new CPU cooler is targeted
at PC enthusiasts modding on current high-end PC platforms, including a wide range of Intel and AMD
CPUs. It is also compatible with the newest Intel Sandy Bridge LGA 1155 processors.
The Freezer 13 PRO comes with a 6 year limited warranty, with a MSRP set at $54.90 USD and ?39.90
EUR, excl. VAT. It is definitely a step up from any other ordinary CPU coolers in the market. ARCTIC,
again, brings affordable and innovative cooling solution to computer enthusiasts and overclockers.

Game Zoom has taken the exclusive opportunity to test ARCTIC?s newest Freezer
13 PRO before its official launch. Test results reveal that the Freezer 13 PRO is
an all-rounded CPU cooler with an excellent price/performance ratio. Cooling an
Intel Core i7 970 (6 x 3.0 GHz @ 4.0 GHz), this cooler performed inaudibly and
adequately without any doubt. The Freezer 13 PRO deserves a High-End Award
and is a true price/performance winner.
