The Freezer 7 Pro has three copper heatpipes with aluminum fins and a 92mm PWM fan with fluid dynamic bearing technology for long life and quiet operation. There is a bit of confusion here, as the box lists “ceramic bearing” while the website says “fluid dynamic.” Are they the same? I don't know.) The fan has an unusual, open construction that allows air to be drawn in from the sides, enhancing cooling around the socket. Curved fins on the opposite side of the cooler perform a similar function, directing some of the airflow over components in this area.
The Freezer 7 Pro supports only Socket 775, but is rated for virtually all processors in this class.
The retail box displays a wealth of information about the contents…
…which are minimal. Just the heatsink/fan unit, installation instruction sheet and a case sticker are included. This is not surprising, given the fact that this is a single-socket solution. Besides, I like simple.
