Product on Review: Arctic Freezer 33 eSports Edition
Manufacturer and Sponsor: Arctic
Arctic Cooling were founded in 2001 as a manufacturer of computer cooling components and were probably best known for their affordable cooling solutions and renowned MX range of thermal pastes. In 2010 the company rebranded as simply 'Arctic' along with a necessary logo change to coincide with a business expansion plan. Many people may be unaware, but Arctic also cater to additional consumer markets selling peripherals, audio products and HTPCs.
In early 2017 Arctic completed a fresh re-branding exercise including again, a revised logo. One of their latest products has been the Freezer 33 CPU cooler which comes in a variety of flavours (almost literally, given the colour palettes on offer) from semi-passive to Threadripper variants. Today, we are looking at the eSports Edition which Arctic have kindly provided for review.
This 120mm cooler is bundled with not one, but two of the company's latest BioniX fans. These are PWM blowers with rotation speeds between 200 and 1800 RPM. Colour choices for this specific model are black with either red, yellow, green or white accents. We got yellow but you can't win 'em all - this element is subjective, of course. We feel the black heatsink itself however is a nice design choice. Arctic don't appear to publicise the reasons behind the eSports moniker, but based on the mid-range pricing and available colour schemes it's presumably aimed at these such users.
Arctic on their Freezer 33
"The Freezer 33 eSports Edition is a CPU cooler with PushPull Configuration. Two extremely silent fans with a 3-phase motor, mounted on opposite sides of the Heatsink, guarantee long gaming sessions without annoying noise. With a high range of RPM, the BioniX F120 fans are controllable with PWM to regulate the fan speeds as needed. The 3-phase motor with low coil temperature quadrupled the life span and we extend the warranty to 10 years".
