The Cooler

 

 

The Freezer 7 LP is a dual heatpipe design that pulls heat from the CPU and moves it to the outer edges, allowing the entire fin surface to cool the processor. Heat remaining just above the heatpipes radiates up through the center fins and is then carried away.

 

 

In this image you can see how the heatpipes work to move heat around the heatsink.

 

 

The fins have a little more distance between them than some of the other coolers we have looked at recently. This allows a fan that pushes less air to effectively cool the fins.

 

 

The fan just rests on the top of the cooler with the shroud and the shroud screws into the mounting pieces. This eliminates vibrations from travelling through the cooler and the fins echoing the noise.

 

 

Here is a better look at the fan and shroud. Notice the holes on the outside of the shroud? This is where the long screws go through to mount the cooler to the motherboard.

 

 

The cooler comes with thermalpaste applied to the heatsink from the factory.

 

 

With the paste removed, we can see the base of the cooler. There are light machine marks on the base but everything is smooth to the touch.
