Frankly speaking, ARCTIC Freezer i30 didn’t impress us with any unique innovations, which the company slogan promised, and didn’t demonstrate award-winning cooling efficiency or acoustic performance. Both these characteristics are, in fact,...

The Arctic Freezer i30 is a good CPU cooler with reasonable cooling performance and an almost inaudible fan. It will probably perform better if you change the stock fan for a more powerful one, which makes it a very versatile cooler. However, the new...

The Arctic Cooling Freezer i30 isn't too far off the pace compared with the Enermax cooler. It's not often you'll see a pair of chip chillers as well built as these, at what many people would regard as an entry-level price. This little...

A few weeks ago we tested and reviewed one of the most basic CPU coolers ARCTIC offers at this point of time, the Alpine 11 PLUS, which proved capable of satisfying basic user needs. Today however we are going to have a look at the nemesis of the...

The i30 is well made and put together, and although not actually oozing quality certainly won't fall apart in a hurry. The use of a plastic cowling to house the 120mm fan lifts the appearance of the i30 over those coolers that simply have the fans...

After our last review of the Freezer 13 Pro I came away feeling good about what Arctic was bringing into the market. The Freezer 13 Pro is a great cooler which leaves me to wonder why Arctic is bringing yet another cooler into the market already. I...

Overall, the Arctic Freezer i30 CPU cooler is a great product, and it gets the job done. It is a very versatile product, fitting three different types of socket, and countless types of CPU's. The direct-contact heatpipe technology does the job well,...

The Arctic Freezer i30 was quite a result for the books. It's been a long time since Arctic has produced anything that's both affordable and effective, and the Freezer i30 has both of these qualities in abundance. It costs just £30, yet...

Today we are looking at the latest cooler from Arctic – the Freezer i30, which features an interchangeable 120mm PWM fan, 4 double sided direct touch heatpipes with cooling support up to 320 Watts. The i30 is released to exclusively support Intel...

As I sit here figuring out which angle to take first I figured I would go right to what is going to sell this cooler; silence! Seriously this is the most silent 120mm fan cooler CPU cooler that I have ever tested. Most manufacturers ran to 140mm...

Arctic a décidé de renouer avec le gros radiateur à petit prix, et propose depuis quelques temps les i30 / A30, en fonction du processeur. Dans notre cas, on reste chez les bleus, et on s'attarde un peu sur ce modèle vendu à...

Beim neuen Freezer i30 handelt es sich um einen preiswerten Tower-Kühler. Neben dem günstigen Preis wissen aber auch Verarbeitungsqualität, Montagesystem und Kühlleistung zu gefallen. Auch die Geräuschentwicklung des 120 mm Fans...

Die Grafikkarten-Kühler von ARCTIC - wie beispielsweise der zuletzt von uns getestete Accelero Twin Turbo 690 - können fast ausnahmslos überzeugen. Die Pendants im CPU-Kühler-Bereich beschränken sich durch die große...
