    Question Arctic Cooling Freezer Xtreme

    Does anyone know where I can find a review on a Arctic Cooling Freezer Xtreme? I noticed these on YoYoTech and wanted to know how the compare to the AF7 Pro.

    Hmm, everything on google is about when it was shown at computex/cebit, I don't think there's a review up yet.

    From Yoyotech's page, it doesn't look too stright does it?

    Although the basic design look like a copy of the Scythe Mine or tuniq tower 120
    With U shaped heatpipes leading to heatsinks on ether side of a 120mm fan in the middle of the cooler.
    The fact that this is larger and useing a 120mm fan instead of the 92mm fan of the freezer7pro, I'd guess that it'll perform better and quieter.

    seems to have lost a lot of the simplicity which was what gave the AC7P the bang for buck vote as it was so cheap. Was there a price given? i would estimate similar pricing to the Scythe or Tuniq so it better be a good performer

    Tuniq Tower 120 - I got one in my P180 no problem. P190 is same size (may even have a slightly better clearance).
    Try to make each and every day the best it can be.

    YOYO have the following prices
    Tuniq TOWER 120 £34
    Scythe Miné £25
    Scythe Ninja Plus £27
    AC freezer EX £26 (but not in stock)

    So the same sort of price, the question is how well will it perform?

    Just to warn you guys, The Antec P190 can only fit 120mm heasinks. The towers/noctuas/ninjas/zalman 9700's, whatever, will not fit. Reason being that there is a massive 200mm fan on the side of the case where it go in around 4-6 cm. So for the big/extreme coolers, they won't fit.

    I have a Zalman 9700 Nvidia version and I have to do a fair bit of ripping off the fins to get my side case back on, and even then it still need to be pressured on. Also, when I look inside my case theres litterally 1-2mm clearance from my side fan to the Zalman 9700 fan!

    For that case you want something like the Thermalright SI-128 there far lower and suposed to be very good (I think it's the thermalright one that was very good)

    You don't need an aftermarket cooler, the stock one will do fine.

    Although it may be a bit noisy, and temps/noise could be improved with even a cheapish CPU cooler.

    The current core 2 Intel stock coolers are very quiet, but yeah temps can be improved but why spend extra cash when its unnecessary unless overclocking.

    Re: Arctic Cooling Freezer Xtreme

    with the fan controller switched on in the bios, near enough any fan on any cooler is silent unless its under load (games, renderng video etc). In these cases when the fan does spin up it doesnt really matter, its when its idle that you want the silence. SO... no if there is no overclocking stick with stock
