Artic Cooling's Booth

 Arctic Cooling was happily parading their current series of cooling solutions and those of their upcoming variety expected to stream into retail channel in the next two months.

 New to come from them are their affordable and passive GPU coolers, the Accelero S1 and S2 products. We've reviewed the S2 variant just days ago if you are keen to find out more about its performance. Shown here is the optional Turbo Module for the S1 and S2. It consists of dual 80mm fans designed to be mounted on all-passive cooler to further enhance cooling performance. They'll be available sometime in April.

 With ATI's next generation GPU looming in the horizon, Arctic Cooling has already anticipated the need for them to offer a robust, yet quiet and cool solution. Enter the Accelero Xtreme, catered for both the upcoming R600 based graphics cards as well as the current G80 series. It is also CrossFire and SLI compatible as long as there's adequate spacing on mainboards to accommodate this whopper of a cooler. It consists of triple 80mm fans (PWM controlled), 5 heat pipes, 107 heat radiating fins and integrated memory and voltage regulator cooling. Expect it to be launched in May - probably that's when the heavily delayed ATI's graphics cards will hit the shelves.

 This is the new Alpine 7 Pro CPU cooler for LGA775 processors to be available in June. It is physically smaller than the current Alpine 7, but Arctic Cooling has made some advances and tweaks to bring about this highly efficient Alpine 7 Pro cooler. It has a 90mm low noise impeller driven fan and is temperature controlled by PWM signal from the motherboard. Take note that the existing "GT" version still provides better cooling performance. Thus this is how the lineup would stack up in the near future (from moderate to high performance):- Alpine 7, Alpine 7 Pro and Alpine 7 GT.

 The Freezer series is dearer than the Alpine series for their use of heat pipes. This is a low profile version of the current Freezer 7 series and is aptly named as the Freezer 7 LP. Dual heat pipes with optimized heat sink design for low profile Intel systems, and a 80mm fan that's temperature controlled by PWM signal. Expected to retail by July 2007.

 The most aggressive CPU cooler by Arctic Cooling yet. This unit has a dual tower heat sink design consisting of 8 heat pipes and a total of 226 closely spaced fins! In the center of this cooler design rests a 120mm fan unit to enhance the cooler's operation and handle the most extreme CPUs out there currently and in the near future (universal CPU mounting mechanism). It even boasts the ability to cool the surround voltage regulators and the chipset as well. Available in June this year, this is the Freezer Xtreme - a very fitting name indeed.
