Today we are taking a look at a new CPU cooler from Arctic Cooling. The Freezer 13 arrived recently, as in today, and we are going to test it vs a similar sized Zalman CPU cooler both under normal load and also under overclocking.

The cooler comes packed in this plastic box that shows how the coler looks like, inside you will find mounting kits for both Intel and AMD. They bags are labeled so you can easily find the right mounting parts for your setup.
The thermal paste is already mounted on the core and the fan is also mounted which I found odd since you need to remove it to mount the cpu cooler if you run a AMD setup.
When it comes to the heatsink its very well made and it has four heatpipes connected to the core of the heatsink.
