Arctic Cooling Freezer Xtreme
Package and Accessories
Freezer Xtreme is a long awaited new cooler from the Swiss Arctic Cooling Company that hasn’t released anything really revolutionary for CPU cooling for quite some time already. The cooler package is a true representative of minimalism – clear plastic casing shaped exactly as the cooler with two cardboard inserts inside:
The information on these inserts tells about the cooler key features, lists its technical specifications and compatible processor sockets, promises 6-year manufacturer warranty. There are also two diagrams comparing the efficiency of the Freezer Xtreme cooler vs a standard “boxed” cooler from Intel. According to them, Arctic Cooling solution is 18°C more efficient and 1.25 Sone quieter than Intel Core 2 Duo reference cooler (not quite clear which generation, though) when tested on QX9770 CPU. The cooler is packed securely and the plastic is very sturdy, so the cooler is very well protected against any possible transportation mishaps.
The cooler is bundled with a plastic frame for LGA 775 mainboards, two retentions for contemporary AMD mainboards, and installation manual and a set of screws and plastic locks:
