ARCTIC already revealed the Freezer 50 TR for AMD's Ryzen Threadripper and now the firm follows up with the Freezer 50. This processor cooler has a dual-tower design with a total of 104 aluminium fins and six direct-touch heatpipes. Airflow is provided by a 120mm and a 140mm fan in a push-pull configuration. The HSF shroud also features integrated ARGB LED lighting.

The Freezer 50 measures 148mm x 149.5mm x 166mm (L x W x H) and weighs 1160g. It's compatible with AMD Socket AM4 and Intel LGA115X, LGA1200, LGA2066, and LGA2011(-3) processors.

ARCTIC ships the Freezer 50 HSF for 59.99EUR. For 10EUR more the company also offers a variant with an A-RGB Controller, which can be used if your motherboard has no ARGB LED header.
Gloves off for the next round: ARCTIC‘s Freezer 50 TR successfully took on the challenge of taming the monster CPU, AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper. Now, the Freezer 50 enters the ring with a broader attack. The distinctive design and the impressive performance remain, while its wide compatibility with current Intel and AMD CPUs is new.

The imposing dual-tower cooler is one of the most powerful air coolers that ARCTIC has developed. Equipped with six massive U-shaped, direct-touch heat pipes 104 aluminum fins and two fans, the Freezer 50 achieves the best heat dissipation and excellent cooling performance. A combination of a 120 and 140 mm P-Fans in push-pull configuration is used, producing strong airflow without compromising on volume — even at maximum speed, the Freezer 50 only reaches 0.4 sone.

In addition to its impressive performance, the Freezer 50 electrifies with its extraordinary—and individualized—optics: addressable RGB offers fully customizable lighting options.

The most important features at a glance:
  • Dual-tower design with 6 heatpipes for maximum performance
  • Compatible with Intel & AMD sockets
  • Adressable RGB for fully customizable illumination
  • Two pressure-optimised fans
  • Wide RPM Range for highest performance and low noise level
  • Easy mounting solution???????
  • MX-4 thermal paste included

    Optional: Freezer 50 with A-RGB controller
    The Freezer 50 comes with an optional in-house developed A-RGB controller for users whose motherboards do not have an A-RGB connector. The controller can be freely placed in the housing, allowing for control of the effects and color design via a convenient remote control.

    Note: Since the Freezer 50 is built for maximum performance, including a massive heatsink, it does not have limitless RAM Clearance. Recommended is a maximum memory module height of 37.5 mm. This stipulation is mainly due to the tip on the underside of the Freezer 50, which means modules that exceed this height could still be compatible if they have V-shaped or centrally recessed heatsinks.
