Superior Cooling Perfomance
An interchangeable 120 mm PWM fan in combination with 4 direct touch heatpipes and a 48-fin heatsink enable the Freezer i30 to deliver outstanding cooling performance and improve heat dissipation from the CPU. According to the test results from Hardware Secrets, its superior cooling performance surpassed the stock cooler and similar models by up to 34 degrees.
Cooling Performance on Intel Core i7-4960X (Overclocked)
Freezer i30 (at 1,350 RPM)
Boxed Cooler (at 2,020 RPM)
The test in Tom's Hardware has shown that the Freezer i30 is the quietest cooler in their roundup. Thanks to the PWM control, the fan speed adjusts according to the CPU temperature and thus the noise level remains at an absolute minimum which qualifies it as a silent cooler. Click here to see how the PWM control settings can be changed according to your performance and noise preference.

Sturdy Mounting Mechanism
There is no need to worry about the weight of this muscular, yet gentle cooler. The Freezer i30 is using a durable steel mounting clip and comes with a bundled back-plate*. As a result it has an excellent mounting stability and is fully transport-proof.
* For Socket 2011, it is compatible with the existing back-plate
Direct Touch Heatpipe Heatsink
Rubber Vibration Absorbers
The Freezer i30 heatsink consists of 4 double-sided direct touch heatpipes, 8mm in diameter. A patented process (20 2011 000 71.8) allows us to pack the heatpipes without gaps and thus increase the contact surface and achieve better flatness by precision machining - both leading to an improved heat transfer.

"Leaves no Room for Criticism"
The new Freezer i30 is an inexpensive tower cooler. In addition to the low price the build quality, installation and cooling performance can convince as well. Also the noise generation of the 120 mm fan leaves no room for criticism. Given the fair price and the performance we give a buy recommendation.
The LGA 2011 socket of my motherboard looks different. Will it fit my Freezer i30 ?
There is a chance that the Intel LGA 2011 socket on your motherboard looks different from the others (see example below). Please ensure that there is a metal plate around the screw holes (see left), otherwise damage to the motherboard may happen during the installation.
The PC is reporting a low fan speed during booting.
Your PC may send you a CPU Fan Speed warning when starting the PC if the fan speed is lower than the default minimum value. If you do not wish to receive this warning in the future, you may enter the BIOS to reset the minimum value or disable the function completely.
As shown in the example below, you can adjust the settings under Power -> CPU Fan Speed warning. By setting the value to 800 RPM, you should avoid any warnings of this kind in the future.
