Low profile for up to 90W TDP

 

Arctic Cooling has launched a new cooler that is going to easily fit into those slim HTPC cases. The new Freezer 7 LP is 42mm thick and weighs 263g, which makes it almost half the size of a usual CPU cooler.

According to the press release, this cooler has enough power to cool any Intel CPU rated up to 90W of TDP. Packed in those slim dimensions the new cooler has two heatpipes in combination with 40 fins cooled by 80mm PWM fan. The fluid dynamic bearing fan spins from 600 to 2,000RPM and features AC's patented fan holder, which eliminates a lot of unwanted noise.

In an example shown at AC's Website, this cooler outperforms Intel's Core 2 Quad E9550 cooler by 4.4 degrees. It spins at lower RPM, cools better than the stock cooler, and most importantly, it produces less noise than the stock cooler. As this slim thing is meant for HTPC systems, the noise tends to be the most important thing, next to the performance, of course.

The new Freezer 7 LP comes with pre-applied Artic Cooling MX2 thermal paste, and the suggested price stands at €17.95.
