  • Arctic releases new line of AIO coolers


    https://www.tomshardware.com/news/ar...ler,40579.html




     




    Arctic has announced their new line of liquid coolers in 120, 240, 280, and 360mm flavors today.




     




    The waterblock has a small 40mm fan to cool surrounding motherboard components. This will help VRM cooling, especially when other competing AIO's have a problem with airflow in this area.

    Most notably, however, the CPU block comes with a small 40mm fan, which will provide some airflow to the components surrounding the CPU socket. This fan can spin at speeds between 1000 and 3000 RPM through PWM control.

    The main 120mm or 140mm fans on the unit come with PWM control, which allows them to run at speeds down to just 200 RPM, and all the way up to 1800 RPM when required. Arctic claims that the Liquid Freezer II series liquid CPU coolers produce about 0.3 Sone of noise, which translates to a dBA rating between 22.5 and 24.5 dBA. We’re still not sure why Arctic continues to rate its hardware in Sone levels in a market that almost exclusively measures sound levels in decibels.






     




    Here's an early review of the thing by KitGuru: https://www.kitguru.net/components/c...oler-review/2/




     




    Results show that the cooler is very effective, beating Thermaltake's 360mm AIO when competing in the 240mm flavor.








     




    In case people are concerned about the small 40mm fan making too much noise, the cooler actually is one of the quietist (is that a word?) coolers in the competition:
