ARCTIC COOLING FREEZER 13 PRO INTRODUCTION
Most companies that produce aftermarket cooling products for the PC follow the “Let's bring out a new cooler every year,” marketing model. While this is not necessarily a bad thing, it's refreshing to find a company that makes a great product and stays with it for a while. Arctic Cooling is just such a company and many of their products have withstood the test of time very well. This time out we have a relatively new cooler, the Freezer 13 Pro. It has that Arctic Cooling look that promises good performance at a reasonable price, but it also has a few new innovations that may really serve to set it apart from the crowd. Follow along as we put it through its paces and see what the Freezer 13 Pro has to offer.
ARCTIC COOLING CORPORATE PROFILE
The increased heat emission of modern computers has put the production of powerful and quiet coolers beyond the means of most manufacturers. The raised noise levels of PC systems have a negative impact on productivity, since a quiet computer is the basis for pleasant working conditions. ARCTIC initiated the trend towards quiet cooling systems for desktop PCs in 2001 and has led the way ever since. When ARCTIC COOLING was founded, we began by focusing on Switzerland and Germany. In 2002 ARCTIC COOLING (HK) Ltd. was founded to develop relationships with our Asian production locations. From 2005, we started to expand business in North and South America and provide optimum service to our customer base there. ARCTIC is now a leading manufacturer of CPU coolers, GPU coolers and case fans. In recent years we acquired a far-ranging expertise in the field of consumer electronics. The company's product range has been further enhanced by new lines unrelated to PC cooling which was the reason behind the 2010 change in our brand name and logo: ARCTIC COOLING became the ARCTIC brand umbrella.
