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.

The test in Tom's Hardware has shown that the Freezer A30 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*
Direct Touch Heatpipe Heatsink
There is no need to worry about the weight of this muscular, yet gentle cooler. The Freezer 30 applies a durable steel mounting clip and a back-plate*. As a result it has an excellent mounting stability and is fully transport-proof.
A30 - Back-plate is integrated in original AMD retention module already.
i30 / i30 CO - Socket 2011: Back-plate is integrated in original Intel socket already.
Socket 1155, 1156: Additional back-plate is bundled with product.
The Freezer 30 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.

"CO" stands for Continuous Operation and makes the cooler suitable for PCs with non-stop operation like servers. The Japanese dual ball bearing used in the "CO" fan reduces rotational friction considerably, is significantly less sensitive to dust and high temperature and hence up to 5 times more durable than other bearings.
This feature is applicable to Freezer i30 CO only.
Not that you have to replace the fan, but that flexibility is offered!

"Excellent thermal performance with minimal noise"
"Performance:Excellent thermal performance with minimal noise, even at the highest fan speed despite limited motherboard support and additional fan mounting options."
"The Freezer i30 is the strong, silent type, able to withstand plenty of heat, even with just a single fan. The build quality is excellent, as expected from a flagship CPU air cooler, even if it is priced for the mainstream segment. Installation was swift and the mounting kit doesn't apply too much unnecessary pressure on the motherboard."

Technical Support / FAQ
The LGA 2011 socket of my motherboard looks different. Will it fit my Freezer i30 / i30 CO?read
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.read
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.
