Final Thoughts

The Arctic Cooling Freezer XTREME lives up to its name and can effectively cool a modern day flagship processor with ease. Overclockers looking to cool their processors when pushed to the limit will enjoy the cooler for its cooling power and casual clockers, the 10-15% guys will love the mix of performance and quietness.

The Freezer XTREME is currently available on store shelves but availability is limited in the U.S. due to its high demand. If you are on the prowl and find one in stock, act quickly because there are several others looking for this performance cooler. With an MSRP price of under 50 U.S. Dollars the Freezer XTREME isn't going to break the bank and the cooler is actually a bargain when compared to 80 Dollar coolers that perform at the same level.

When it comes to installation, the Freezer XTREME has most other coolers on the market beat, hands down. Intel and AMD based motherboards do not have to be removed, making installation a snap. The bracket supplied by Arctic Cooling is robust and allows for a tight fit between the processor and cooler.

If the Arctic Cooling Freezer XTREME had a fault, it would be in the pre-applied thermal paste. I was surprised to see that the cooler didn't come with a tube of Arctic Cooling's premium paste. Many users purchase a cooler to use on more than one system, but in the end omitting the extra paste allows AC to keep the cooler cost lower.
