  • Enhanced heat dissipation: evenly distributed direct contact heat pipes and an optimized design with 54 cooling fins allow for ideal heat dissipation
  • High performance for high-end CPU: the contact surface of the heat pipes covers exactly the location of the die processor and covers even the largest versions (18 cores)
  • Easy installation: Quick to install, the mounting system is compatible with Intel and AMD sockets. Thanks to its back plate and low weight, it is also safe for transport.
  • Ideal airflow: the two bionix P fans operate in push-pull mode. The resulting increase in airflow ensures even faster heat dissipation of the CPU
  • Compatibility: the Freezer 34 eSports duo arctic CPU cooler mounting system is compatible with Intel sockets: 115x, 2011-3*, 2066* and AMD: AM4.

Yup, great deal. Not quite £26.99 for the red a little while back, but at this price range it's an excellent cooler. 3700X running cool and fairly quiet with mine!

A note for those installing on AMD AM4 systems: After removing the two plastic retaining brackets on all AM4 mobos, in the example videos the standoffs with ONE notch are used, which is correct, but the notch should be "down" towards the motherboard not up. Otherwise when attempting to screw on the thumb screws, they will not take.
Esports? Haha, it's a fan

is it worth the premium over the regular 34 which is 19.99 right now?

Might explain the probs people claim to have had fitting these. Still not sure what to go for myself. Does thermal paste 'go off' when in use? Read something on here that sounded like it does.

From their testbench image on the listing page for both, they get 1.2 degrees lower with the duo.
It's cheaper than the grey single fan right now though so that's mainly why I would get it.

The mx-4 paste provided should last for 8 years ( if the sales pitch is to be believed)

I bought one of these about a month ago for original price of £34.99.

Using Core Temp to monitor on a Ryzen 5 3600,

In multiple Cinebench runs it levels of at 66 degrees. General browsing 30 to 45.
Its quite loud when it ramps up but I never hear it in gaming only when I bench the cpu. Depends how you set the fan curve I suppose and at least you dont get that sometimes constant up and down ramping that I had with the stock fan.

Overall its knocked 14 to 17 degrees off my temps - many other factors to take into account though so if you are thinking of getting one hold that in mind. Im happy enough with it.

Depending on the paste it can set solid like cement and you have to chisel the CPU off the heatsink. In most situations it doesn't cause an appreciable difference in temperatures but it will reduce the thermal conductivity; dusty fans and filters will have a more significant effect than the TIM getting old.
Thanks Prol.

I was looking to replace the stock Ryzen 5 3600 fan. My system is total quiet apart from the ramping up and down of the stock fan. So I'll give this one a go.

I did the exact same and I wasn't disappointed. Just set a fan curve in the BIOS so it doesn't ramp up as fast.
Have this one it’s good. 3600x stays around 50-60c under load depending on your ventilation and type of case. 3200g max temp around 32c in windows.
Word of advice. if you have an X570 motherboard in particular the Asus X570 Prime Pro, the standoffs are not correct for this board, the cooler is either too loose or you can't put the thumb screws on. If you contact arctic they will send you a new stand offs and correct backplate. Up to you if you want the inconvenience.

99% of people have cottoned on that "gaming" products are usually cheap tat with lights and graffiti style font added on. So now they put "esports" on to show it's proper serious hardcore gaming gear. Laughable really
Is this a good cooler for my Pentium 166mhz?
Damn it, paid £34.99 for this last week. Still, great cooler though and a doddle to install on an am4 socket.

socket 7 is not supported by this cooler
have this with my 3600 its pretty good, however: it appears to have some kind of heat transfer bottleneck and fan speed dosent achieve as much so for heavy load it will go to full fan speed and be rather noisy at around 70-75c or so but has neglible temp improvement from max speed so manual fan curve is a must.

currently dont even have a proper case setup with airflow (just an old style without case fans or panels) and its basically silent in games with a manual fancurve at around 55c.

A manual fan curve is a must these fans get extremely noisy. But cooling isn't much different to say a NH-D15 in my tests.

Best budget heatsink / fan there is.. According to reviews. No personal experience but if I was in need I give it a whirl. Read reviews always before purchase
McTabish12/03/2020 21:08

No. You'll need a proper Peltier heat exchange system for that.
Tempted to get this. But I'm reading that it's a pain to install on AM4 and may well require removal of the motherboard from case. And that the fan mounting is not very good. Anyone that can confirm or deny this?

Over and out.

If you lived in Manchester/ Rochdale I'm selling a new and boxed Artic freezer 34 lol for £20

Honestly, pretty amazing quality cooler for its price like you said.

Ok so this is based on my experience:

I don't think it was a particularly difficult install process, I've had worse. But it's best to do it with as much room as possible and preferably outside the case or at least with rear access. You don't need to remove the motherboard from your case if you can access the rear. The provided plastic mounts on AM4 have to be removed, but the backplate that is provided with the motherboard is still used. If you can't get to the back of your motherboard because of your case, be cautious because the backplate may fall out behind the motherboard.

As I've posted elsewhere, make sure to use the provided extension standoffs that have ONE notch, and the notch faces downwards (so I think that's the thicker screw thread going towards the mobo rather than away). The other sets have no notches and two notches, these are probably for Intel sockets.

The fan mounting is solid enough once it is in, but it basically consists of four bent metal brackets. Once they're on, though, it's pretty solid. I would not call this a premium product. It doesn't have quite the same level of polish as a Scythe or Noctua cooler. But it also feels quite a few steps up from the much cheaper feeling Freezer 7 and 13. I've had both, they're fine, this is much better.
Tempted to go for this but I'm unsure whether or not the screws will fit in my Dell XPS 8700 motherboard.

Also, if the £5 promo voucher works, can get it for £24.99.

Try using some blutac with some of the foil from your hat.
I have the single fan version of this. Im thinking of returning it because the PWM control in certain rpm ranges as it adjusts makes a resonating whining pitch sound that is really annoying.
I have the single fan version of this CPU cooler on a 2600x cpu. Idle temps around 25c and not seen it above 40c when gaming. Silent too its decent. Also it's not very tall, so fits pretty much all cases and no issue with ram clearance and was easy fitting am4 tbh I'm not sure why people found that difficult

It just runs cool the house is around 25c to 30c I suppose it's not like we don't have the heating running ha! I do have 4 case fans, two intakes and 2 exhaust. And using kryonaught compound

not seen temps that high at all. Playing jedi fallen order for a few hours and not above 40c according to hwmonitor. I'm not overclocking
