ARCTIC is most notorious for their cooling solutions. They have been in the space since 2001, and have since then expanded into other areas of the tech world too. Today however, we are going to be looking at their Freezer 33 eSports Edition cooler, which promises to bring a dual fan, single tower design for the price of $45 to $50 depending on which color rings you’d like around your fans. Choosing a cooler is a tough choice these days, given that there are just so many of them on the market. On the other hand, ARCTIC is looking to take your money on this occasion, and it is our duty to let you know whether or not you should hand it over.
It’s a little perplexing as to why the units are differing in price, though it may be down to the popularity of certain color schemes. We will cover this further on in the review. You’ll be seeing the green variant in today’s review as it was something a little different from the norm. ARCTIC also sent us a spare fan, perhaps to use in our chassis, so you’ll get to see that too.
ARCTIC – formerly ARCTIC COOLING – was founded in 2001, with a vision on silence to make the working experience more pleasant. Here’s a little outtake of ARCTIC’s ‘About Us’ page;
In 2001, we initiated the trend towards quiet cooling systems for desktop PCs and have since become one of the leading manufacturers in this sector. Since 2010, we use the know-how of many years of IT experience to expand our portfolio with consumer electronics. In the course of expansion ARCTIC COOLING finally evolved into ARCTIC.
Our whole product range is recognized for offering innovative quality with a fair price tag. We never run tired inventing new technologies. While you can rely on our cooling solutions to offer highest performance at minimum noise levels, we focus on clean sounds and rich tones for our headphones and speakers.
But we always keep our origin in sight because a quiet computer is the basis for pleasant working conditions.
Here’s a little history for you guys; this is the original ARCTIC COOLING logo when they were formed in 2001, and that’s how I remember them too. It has been a long time since I had an AC product, so I am eager to find out what they’re made of, as they were magnificent budget coolers in the past. Pop question: who remembers the AC Freezer 7? I still have the AMD variant laying around somewhere…
