Frequently Bought Together
Product Overview The New Price-performance Champ
Thanks to the better cooling performance of 320 Watts, the Freezer i32 is the perfect gadget for PC enthusiasts looking for a keen solution for the CPU cooling.

Improved Cooling Performance
Despite lower weight and size, we could improve not just the manufacturing quality, but also the thermal performance due to a fully automatic production process.

Fan Controller Made in Germany
The ARCTIC F12 fan is well known for high airflow at a comfortable noise level and thus this cooler won't be disturbing even at maximum CPU load. The real improvement is the motor and controller. Our German engineers made this fan work at lower speed when performance is not needed. Often motherboards don't provide PWM signals below 40% and thus make coolers unnecessary loud - not so with the Freezer i32.

Enhanced Bearing
Due to a new alloy/lubricant combination developed in Germany, the friction within the bearing is reduced and a greater efficiency is achieved. This way, there is less heat development as well as less bearing noise and you can enjoy a longer service life of your cooler.

Optimal Compatibility
The lower footprint of the Freezer i32 avoids interference with the RAM, even if there are two fans used.

Safe on the Go
Due to the screw-mount onto a back-plate and a significantly lower weight compared to the i30, the Freezer i32 is absolutely transport proof. Features • 120mm High Airflow Cooling Fan.
• Copper Direct Contact Heatpipes.
• Compatible with Intel Sockets; 2011(-3), 1150, 1151, 1155, & 1156.
• Recommended for TDP up to 150 Watts.
• 320 Watts Max. Cooling Capacity.

Intel Branding Part I
Intel Branding Part I
Date Issued: 1st Jul 2009

Intel’s been on a mission of late. That mission revolves around grouping and standardising key technologies under various banners that are designed to ensure hardware compatibility and consumer ease of use. We’ll take a closer look at three such technologies that fall under the headings of Centrino, Viiv, and vPro, respectively.

Date Issued: 20th Oct 2008

The purpose of this TekSpek is to delineate the publicly known features of Intel’s next generation desktop microarchitecture. Codenamed Conroe and officially titled Intel Core 2 Duo, it’s loosely based on the current mobile Yonah (Core Duo) underpinnings.

Date Issued: 20th Oct 2008

The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

Date Issued: 14th Jun 2008

There’s been a lot of hype about Intel’s Core 2 recently, even since they launched Core in fact. Words like Conroe, Badaxe and Allendale have been flying around. The bottom line is that Core 2 is the name of Intel’s latest line of CPUs, based on a new micro-architecture, designed for speed and efficiency.

Anybody who has been near their share of computer systems will appreciate that not all systems make the same amount of noise. There are a number of reasons for why this is so. Firstly, a computer makes noise for different reasons. Generally, anything mechanical is going to make noise.

Arctic Freezer i32 CPU Cooler, 120mm PWM Fan, 0 - 1350rpm, S1150/1151/1155/1156/2011-3, Aluminium, 150W is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from First class cooler The cooler works well. It is easy to install, although the fixing bolts can be over tightened with risk to the motherboard. However the means by which the fan is attached to the cooler matrix is somewhat feeble. By comparison with earlier model i30 the installation is much easier but the fan attachment is less positive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not whisper quiet but a good performer I note that another reviewer has picked up on the lack of protection from over-tightening screws and the metal wire retainers for the fan(s). Those are fair points, but have to say they didn't bother me. I suppose having worked for many years on PCs coming to me with Intel's push-pin heatsink "solutions", anything seems better... If you install the screws on opposite sides first, and tighten them all in order, carefully, once there's resistance, a quarter to half turn at a time, you should be able to gauge the torque required. If you can see the PCB of the motherboard begin to flex more than a tiny amount, you're going too far. As long as contact is even and firm, you should have good results. Personally I like being in control here. With the fan clips, they aren't elegant, but take your time with them and I haven't had a problem yet moving the machine around. It keeps my i5-6600K on a 4.4Ghz OC exactly where it needs to be, and more. Your mileage with a Socket 2011 CPU with a much higher TDP may vary. It's not quiet when the fan spins up, but not loud either - a pleasant enough thrum. Most of the time, in browsing etc., it runs passively. In gaming it can't really be heard anyway. Not the best out there then, but a solid option at this price point and I haven't regretted it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bad design for 2011pin CPU's Having used a lot of the previous Arctic Intel CPU I30 range I got one of these in to try. Firstly on the previous models they had a metal spacer to go between the heat sink and the motherboard so that you couldn't over tighten the screws, on this model they've not included those and you essentially have to make sure each screw is turned exactly the same amount otherwise the heat-sink may not lay flat, also there's no way to know if you are over or under-tightening as there's nothing to stop you from screwing right down and damaging the motherboard. Secondly on the old model the fan was held in place with a plastic cowl which kept the fan on firmly and in place. On this model they've gone back to the awful thin wires which have a tendency to ping off in transit if shipping to someone and don't hold the fan in 1 secure position as it allows the fan to move around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For quiet systems, that still need power, a great choice I've used these in several DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) builds recently. Semi-passive fan, as good as silent when running at low speeds (below 900RPM). Temperatures kept low even when CPU is running intensively. I cannot vouch for gaming systems as I don't work with these. For audio, HTPCs etc., thoroughly recommended.
