Arctic Cooling Freezer i30 – Review



Arctic Cooling will be a name that many of you are familiar with. Having been set up way back in 2001, they are one of the first companies to see the importance of having both a quiet and cool solution for cooling hot hardware such as CPU’s and GPU’s.

Today I am going to be looking at the Arctic Cooling Freezer i30 CO. One of Arctic Cooling’s top tier cooling solutions, with a cooling capacity of up to 320W there is little that this cooler shouldn’t be able to handle. The Freezer i30 CO is an updated version of the venerable i30.

As the name suggests the i30 CO is designed just for Intel Socket processors, Arctic have a different SKU for AMD sockets called the A30, which features a different set of mounting brackets, the actual coolers are the same otherwise.
