Arctic Freezer 34 – Effective, quiet and affordable

Conclusion and rating

Arctic has long focused primarily on the production of affordable coolers. Freezer 34 should be just one such cooler. At an affordable price, it boasts of a solid TDP rating (150 W) and also promises quiet operation. I’ve had it in my wishlist for a long time, but only now have I managed to get one piece for testing. So I’m wondering if it really lives up to its reputation that precedes it.

Conclusion and rating

Arctic Freezer 34 is not acting anything unnecessarily. It is a solid cooler with a silent fan for a very good price and with an above-standardly long warranty. If you don’t pay too much attention to the looks, do not require RGB backlighting or you just want a quality cooler for a good price, then Arctic Freezer 34 is a good choice.

Of course, there were some tiny flaws, but with the price tag of €29, I’m willing to ignore these details and give the Arctic Freezer 34 cooler our editorial recommendation Go for it!.

Arctic BioniX P120 A-RGB: The lit specialist for filters and grilles

Now that’s what we call a turnaround. Remember how the BioniX F120 failed on obstacles? The newer BioniX P120 (A-RGB) no longer has such a fundamental limitation. On the contrary, it is significantly less stifled by obstacles than many competing fans. Just tame those vibrations, fine-tune the acoustics, where there are some flaws, and it’ll be great. The basis (the rotor) is better in practice than the label parameters suggest. Read more “Arctic BioniX P120 A-RGB: The lit specialist for filters and grilles” »

Arctic Freezer 7 X rev. 3: The cooling legend that missed the boat

How many generations of processors could the Freezer 7 cool? The most. No other brand of coolers has been around for so long. That’s worthy of respect, but the fact remains that the progression in efficiency is rapid from revision to revision. Some improvements do come, but at a slower rate than competing solutions that are way more cost-effective. Thus, Freezer 7 often reaches the shelves of brick-and-mortar stores and PC builds only by inertia. Read more “Arctic Freezer 7 X rev. 3: The cooling legend that missed the boat” »

Arctic Alpine 17 CO: A classic that’s going to have a hard time

Alpine coolers are always cheap and are sold at prices below ten euros. Active models with fans can be seen as simple replacements for box coolers. However, while Intel has vastly improved the coolers supplied with Alder Lake CPUs between generations, the biggest change with the new Alpine 17 is the added LGA 1700 support. The difference in cooling performance over the Laminar RM1 has thus narrowed considerably. Read more “Arctic Alpine 17 CO: A classic that’s going to have a hard time” »
