Arctic Freezer 33 eSports Edition Review

Packaging & Bundle
Arctic's choice of outer packaging material appears good quality and the design is attractively coordinated to match the chosen colour scheme. Some clear diagrams on the rear of the box also show some high-level detail around the product's fan design, mounting system and manufacturer's claims regards cooling performance.

Upon opening the box we see that some corners have been cut with regards additional foam or similar packaging... in that there isn't any. Let's just hope that any courier handling your new purchase takes good care during transit. To be fair to Arctic, our example was in perfect condition once unboxed and this practice helps in keeping costs down for the end-user. The Freezer 33 eSports Edition does not come with a user manual or installation guide. All instructions can be found on Arctic's website via the direct product or support pages however.

Included accessories are sparse but everything that you actually need, is included. Many manufacturers opt to bundle items that many users just don't need or want and this simply adds to costs. As you will see below, Arctic supplies a backplate, mounting brackets, a small pouch of it's own MX-4 thermal paste, plus screws for all of the supported Intel and AMD sockets. AMD users should note that whilst this cooler can be mounted to their AM4 motherboards, the eSports Edition does not support AM3 or TR sockets.
