The market for CPU cooling modules is already extensive, but it never seems to get full, since new solutions keep being unleashed all the time, such as, in this case, one designed for constant operation.Even though all central processing units always come with the obligatory cooling module, the default solution isn't always enough.
Besides the rare cases where it fails, a stock cooler can't really do much when one desires to, for instance, overclock the CPU. They also aren't specifically built to withstand 24/7 operation.
Fortunately, there is more than one IT player out there that specializes in the creation of cooling solutions, one of which is Arctic.
What the company did was create the freezer 13 CO and Freezer 13 Pro CO, where CO is an abbreviation for Continuous Operation.
They are made to support not only Intel LGA 775, 1155, 1156 and 1366 central processing units, but also socket 754, 939, 940, F, AM2, AM2+ and AM3 CPUs from Advanced Micro Devices.
The Freezer 13 Pro CO measures 134 (L) x 96 (W) x 159 (H) mm and is composed of an aluminum fin array (47 fins), four copper heatpipes and a fan whose diameter is 120mm.
Said spinner runs at 300 to 1,350 RPM (rotations per minute), while a second fan, placed on top of the base, is a 50 mm model of 700 to 2,400 RPM.
Meanwhile, the Freezer 13 CO (123 (L) x 96 (W) x 130 (H) mm) has 45 fins, four heatpipes and a single fan (92mm) spinning at 600 to 2,000 RPM.
Both utilize long life dual ball bearings and use reinforced retention modules, all so that they can keep on running for days and weeks at a time without stopping.
The Freezer 13 CO and Freezer 13 Pro CO are priced at $43.71 (32.95 Euro) and $58.32 (43.96 Euro), respectively.
