Arctic Freezer i30 ReviewPosted on 2012-06-07 12:06:52 by Thomas De Maesschalck
When I first received the i30 for review my first thought was that surely Arctic haven't tried to jazz up a product of theirs by adding an "i" to the name? In fact in a bit of a poke in the eye for the late Mr Jobs the "i" here actually informs us that this version of the cooler is the one compatible with Intel coolers. An A30 model is also available with exactly the same specs for AMD CPUs.
Arctic have typically focussed their attention on the budget end of the cooler market. But that's not to say they don't make good coolers. I can't think of anyone who can deny that the almost iconic Freezer 7 was a cooler that punched well above it's weight. In it's time offering pretty much the performance per pound that could be found.
