Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 Pro CPU Cooler Review

Overall the Freezer 13 Pro is fairly simple to install, but there can be some clearance issues with this basic installation procedure. There’s only one way to install the cooler, at least for an AMD setup, of which most times can become a problem due to clearance issues with the motherboard.  This is the first CPU cooler that I have seen that utilizes a base fan, which I really think is a great idea and should be adopted by more manufacturers.

The Freezer 13 Pro has an MSRP of $54.90, but it can be easily found online for less than $40, making it a decent CPU cooler. ThinkComputers would like to award the Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 Pro CPU cooler an 8 out of 10 score.


  • 50mm base fan
