Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 & 64 Pro Coolers
Published: 2nd November 2006 | Source: Arctic Cooling | Price: |Introduction
The name Arctic Cooling is heavily embedded within the realm of PC enthusiasts, and really needs no introduction. This aftermarket cooling company continues to set the bar for many manufacturers with its intelligent and innovative approach to cooling. Not only are Arctic Cooling's products extremely effective at what they do, but, are on the whole visually aesthetic too. Today I have been fortunate enough to receive a box of sample goodies from Arctic Cooling, and it contains the latest additions to the Arctic Freezer series of aftermarket CPU cooling solutions for both Intel and AMD platforms.

Packaging and Contents
Arctic Cooling have taken the liberty of allowing the Arctic Freezer 7 Pro packaging speak for itself. It is simple and unassuming, it is very similar to the packaging of their 'L' series fans I reviewed a couple of months ago. One thing I would like to include about the packaging is that it is very sturdy and the fan inside is housed within an plastic shroud. You could be extremely confident of this fan arriving in one piece if it were being shipped to you.
