ARCTIC Freezer 33 eSports Edition CPU Cooler Review

Posted May 16, 2018 by Brendan van Varik in Cooling


Price at time of Review: $45 to $50


Fair choice of colors, great performance, quiet under normal loads, dual fan & all-black design


No included screwdriver (minor)
Arctic offers a great option with their Freezer 33 eSports CPU Cooler. The aesthetic is very pleasing and the performance is great as well, even if you are limited to a certain number of color choices.

From what we can see in the stock images from ARCTIC, it does sport an all-black cooler design with the fans to match. The only thing that varies is the ring around the fan(s). Being an all-black design, it does give that feeling that it is of a little higher quality. I don’t know about you, but I am not a massive fan of nickel as it is so hard to match with your system; unless you have an MSI Titanium motherboard, perhaps.

The specs list is a little difficult to copy and paste, so I am going to give you the quick breakdown and give you a link to check out more of the details at your own leisure.

  1. Fits mainstream Intel and AMD systems
  2. Dual 120mm fans with colored ring options (red, white, yellow & green)
  3. 150mm tall, 123mm wide and 103mm deep
  4. Not compatible with TR4, LGA 1366, LGA 775 or anything else but AM4 on the AMD side
  5. Fits 20** sockets with mentions of possible thermal limitations due to incorrectly handled TDPs
  6. Supposedly capable of 320 watts of heat dissipation, though only recommended up to 210w
  7. Special thermal coating to provide more micro-turbulence between the fins, which increases surface to air transfer.
  8. Offset heatpipe configuration improves thermal transfer in conjunction with #7
