Arctic Cooling Serving North America, Opens in Florence SC

More Arctic in the US If you don’t know Arctic Cooling, now is a great time to get acquainted. The company has some impressive CPU cooling designs that focus on performance.

Arctic Liquid Freezer 120 w/ NZXT Kraken G12 GPU Cooler Review

CLCs are overwhelming used for CPUs, but what if they are better suited for GPUs? The Arctic Liquid Freezer 120 proves it has excellent ability to keep temperatures low during intensive gaming sessions, at minimal noise as well. What it lacks in aesthetics it makes up for by far in price.

ARCTIC Releases the Liquid Freezer 240 and 120

Back in November ARCTIC announced that it was releasing two AIOs into the liquid cooling market. If you managed not to roll your eyes so hard that they popped out of their sockets, then you might be able to read on for a couple of details that might make this release interesting. Then again, because it’s essentially another Asetek re-brand, it may seem like a waste of effort. Still, there are two things I like about the Liquid Freezer 240 and 120 that I think might give the units a slight edge. Even though the units overall are standard CLCs, the first thing I noticed is that both come pre-sold with push/pull fan configurations. This is not a typical feature on AIO units but I like this for a couple reasons. First, push/pull can offer you around 5c difference in temperatures which is nice. The other factor is that the radiator is an extra thick 38mm one which means the push/pull will probably have more effect. On top of including the extra fans, ARCTIC also seemed to put a slightly new twist on the copper plate. Rather than have the liquid come in from one side through to the other, they have the flow coming directly into the center of the plate, the most likely spot with the highest heat transfer, and then go out both sides to flow out to the radiator. While the Liquid Freezers may not be the only ones doing this, I personally haven’t seen anyone else showcase this on their plates. These features are tiny, but they could lead to some impressive performance in ...

Arctic Accelero Xtreme IV 280(X) GPU Cooler Review

Today's high demanding games can cause serious heat issues with improperly cooled graphic cards, so what do we do when they start to overheat? Look into water cooling? Not if your graphics card uses a non-referenced PCB. I'm in that boat; I picked up a few video cards without realizing they were non-referenced. The question is, what other options do we have in order to better cool the GPU and memory? Arctic has came up with a solution with the Accelero Xtreme IV 280(X), which is an upgraded air cooling solution that cools the GPU and memory utilizing 5 heatpipes and a custom rear heatsink.
