Arctic seeks to expand its business with two new CPU coolers in the Freezer series, the i30 and A30, which target Intel and AMD systems respectively and promise to deliver much better performance when compared with the boxed solutions offered by the two companies., softpedia reports:
Apart from the mounting system used, the two coolers sport identical specs and performance, the i-version featuring a retention kit compatible with LGA 2011, LGA 1155 and LGA 1156 platforms, while the A30 supports instead AMD's AM3 +, AM3, AM2 + and AM2 platforms.
Despite this difference, both of the models tip the scale at 905 grams (just under 2 pounds) and are paired together with a PWM-controlled fan measuring 120mm.
This is designed to send cool air through 48 aluminum fins that are mounted on four 8mm thick heatpies which draw the heat away from the CPU heatspreader.
Arctic usually invests a lot of effort in making its coolers as silent as possible, and things are no different with these two Freezer models that should emit about 0.3 Sones of loudness when running at full speed.
