Arctic Freezer 33 TR Review and Cooling Benchmarks
But how well does it perform let's test it out with a 16 core 1950 ex, while overcooked a 4 gigahertz and find out after finding out about this cool I reached out to Arctic to see if they'd be able to send one over for review and they Kindly agreed inside the box, we put the heatsink van thermal paste and mounting pieces. Aluminium heatsink is painted, matte black, which I think looks pretty nice compared to the usual silver metal options, and it comes with a 120 millimeter fan, black and red in this case. But it's also available in black and white, with the fan of touch the dimensions of the cool or a 123 millimeters in width 89 millimeters in depth and 155 millimetres in Hyatt, so it's not too big at all and it weighs in at 705 grams. All up. Interestingly, I found that the copper plate doesn't actually cover the full thread – repair AHS. Initially I was a little concerned with how that would affect the cooling performance turns out. I had nothing to worry about as you'll see later in the benchmarks. Installation is fairly straightforward and optic have a good step by step. Video guide on the channel with full details I'll leave a link to it in the description. Basically, you start by screwing in the two mounting plates into the motherboard, then screw in the mounting clips to the base of the heatsink. At this point, the cooler is ready to install, remove the fan and apply the thermal paste to the bottom of the heatsink arctic.
Also Center, with some of their mx2 thermal paste, which is what I used here, I tried to run it down each copper pipe as they show in their video and yeah. I may have used a bit too much, but it doesn't end up being a problem. So please don't call the thermal paste police after placing the cooler above the CPU, simply screw the mounting clips into the mounting plate so and then attach the fan. Something to be careful of is the fan clips, while taking off the fan, one of mine popped out and the metal scratched the paint on the cooler bit finally plug the cable into the CPU header on the motherboard I elected. The cable here was fairly long compared to all the fans I've tested, and it also had a connector allowing you to plug a second fan in speaking of second fan. The heatsink also supports an optional fan on the back. However, I didn't test with this, as I just had the one it's difficult to see here, but I was able to see a fair bit of the CPU which wasn't covered by the heatsink and here's what it looked like. After a move all so, we can see the areas the paste actually came into. Contact with all testing was with an ambient room: temperature of 23 degrees Celsius and amusing, an AMD 1950 X CPU. So the 16 core and hottest variant of thread ripple it's, also running in my Thermaltake view 71 case, which, as you can see, is fairly breathable with these large openings between the case and gloss panels, I've tested both stock speeds and with all cores overclocked to 4 Gigahertz at idle and under full load using the aida64 stability test.
With that in mind, let's take a look at the temperatures, just as a point of reference. I'Ve also retested my Knock to where, u 14s, using the same Arctic thermal paste, the largest and most expensive thread, Ripper, call that not too were currently offer and included. The results here to is it's what I was previously using. This isn't meant to be a detailed comparison between the two, but it does show how well the optic cooler is performing. I was seriously impressed, especially when you consider that you can get the Arctic cooler for around 40 US dollars, while there not to a cooler, is 80 US dollars, so double the price. The Arctic cooler doesn't just cool. Well, I personally think the matte black look. If the heatsink looks better to at least in my primarily black build and I'm, probably going to swap to using the Arctic cooler instead, given how close the temperatures were just out of interest, I also used my thermal camera on the heatsink, both at idle and under Full load at stock speeds I didn't do the same. While overclocked we can see the heat pipes getting warm are as designed and the exposed part of the CPU, which is a little warmer, pretty cool. The temperatures aren't the only important factor there. How loud is the cooler get in this test? I'M measuring the overall system, noise level and my case has three additional fans which are contributing to the overall volume I didn't unplug them for testing.
Is I don't think that represents a real world example and I didn't want the case to overheat without exhausting any air. Additionally, as mentioned that then we'll take view 71 cases fairly open, so you'd probably get better results with a fully closed case again, the results were quite close. I didn't think it was loud and had no problems with it at all. I was expecting it to run louder to compensate for being a smaller cooler but other than a little increase. It was fine. So what did you guys think of the Arctic freezer 33 thread ripper CPU cooler. Overall, I was really impressed it's a great cooling option for thread Ripper at a great price, and I think it looks pretty good too, especially when you consider that my testing was done with the 1950 ex, with all cores overclocked the temperatures weren't an issue at all. You should get even better results with the 1900 X, so 1920 X, CPUs as they produce less heat facial.
