The Arctic Cooling Freezer XTREME

It is difficult to tell the front of the cooler from the back. The good thing is the fan is removable so if you do manage to mount the cooler backwards you can easily pull the fan and mount it the correct way. The fan uses the 4-pin PWM connector that you can see here.

Here you can see the full length of the cooler and the side of the cooler.

The fins lean a little on our sample cooler as you can see here. This leads us to question some of the build quality on our early sample. Arctic Cooling is a Swiss company that prides itself on quality. Early samples sometimes come in with little issues like this and are later ironed out when production goes into full swing.

Arctic Cooling couldn't resist getting a little company branding on the side of the cooler.

From the factory the Freezer XTREME comes with thermal paste pre-applied.

With the thermal paste removed we see the finish on the base. As you can see, the base isn't perfectly smooth but you can't feel the machine marks with your finger.

The top of the cooler is where the removable fan housing is located. To remove the fan just press on the outer edges where the tabs are located and lift the fan out of the cooler.

With the fan removed we see the seven blades and the top mounting attachment.
