Arctic Cooling has announced a new addition to its CPU cooling line up. The new Freezer Xtreme will feature an unique twin tower design and it will be able to achieve a stunning 160W of cooling capacity.
The mentioned unique twin tower design with 102 fins is paired up with four double-sided heatpipes and a single ultra quiet 120mm PWM fan. The dimensions of the new Freezer Xtreme stand at 130 x 100 x 131mm (LxWxH) and it weighs 608g. The PWM controlled fan spins at 800-1500RPMs and creates 35.7CFM of airflow. The new Freezer Xtreme supports Intel socket LGA775 and AMD's socket AM2+, AM2 and 939 processors with TDP of up to 160 Watts.
According to the press release, the new Freezer Xtreme is also able to cool the memory, Northbridge and voltage regulators, possibly due to the unique design and the placement of the fan. Arctic Cooling's testing reveals that Freezer Xtreme is able to hold Intel's Core 2 Extreme QX9770 processor at 42.6 degrees, which is better than the stock cooler by 17.4 degrees. Besides the better cooling performance, AC's new Freezer Xtreme is much less noisier than the stock fan.
The cooler comes with pre-applied MX2 thermal compound and six years of warranty. The suggested price stands at €25.95 / US$39.95 excluding VAT.
