Arctic Freezer i30 Review

Introduction and Technical Specification

 Arctic Freezer i30  



When I first received the i30 for review my first thought was that surely Arctic haven't tried to jazz up a product of theirs by adding an "i" to the name?  In fact in a bit of a poke in the eye for the late Mr Jobs the "i" here actually informs us that this version of the cooler is the one compatible with Intel coolers.  An A30 model is also available with exactly the same specs for AMD CPUs. 

Arctic have typically focussed their attention on the budget end of the cooler market.  But that's not to say they don't make good coolers.  I can't think of anyone who can deny that the almost iconic Freezer 7 was a cooler that punched well above it's weight.  In it's time offering pretty much the performance per pound that could be found. 

With the Freezer i30 Arctic are upping their came and offering something a bit more stylish.  With the blended fairing and the monochromatic colour scheme Arctic are looking to field a cooler that offers great cooling as well as great looks.
