Lucky Number 13 From Arctic

Many companies have triskaidekaphobia, and strictly eschew the number 13 for any of their products, but not Arctic Cooling. The maker of phenomenal fans and coolers has no fear of the number, and has put the moniker on its latest product, a cooler that features the ability to be used with either current Intel or AMD motherboards.

Looking for all the world like its elder brother, the Freezer 7 Series II, it will take close inspection to tell the two apart, but the differences are revealed in the design of the fins, which are a bit more aerodynamic, and thus should shed heat a bit more efficiently than the older design.


Arctic just announced a new addition to its cooling product portfolio, the Freezer 13 CPU cooler which features a tower design and targets enthusiasts who need both performance and a quiet operation, and have Intel LGA 775/1156/1366 or AMD Socket 754/939/AM2(+)/AM3 rigs.

Arctic’s latest creation measures 123 (L) x 96 (W) x 130 (H) mm, weights 695 grams and has 45 aluminum fins, four U-shaped 4mm copper heatpipes, a 92 mm fan working at 600 to 2000 RPM (rotations per minute) and pre-applied MX-2 thermal compound.

The Freezer 13 is backed by a 6-year warranty and will become available next week @ $35.90 / €27.60 (without VAT).


The Freezer 13 looks very close to its older brother, the Freezer 7 Series II.

While the Arctic Coolers are possibly not the best for hard core, overclocking gamers, for every other use, they are remarkably efficient, and inexpensive ways to eliminate the heat from a busy CPU.
