The Freezer 13 Pro is similar in shape to the original Freezer 13, but the Pro uses a 120mm (instead of a 92mm) and also has an additional 50mm fan attached to the base of the cooler. This is the first CPU cooler I’ve ever seen to come equipped with a small fan to help cool the base of the cooler; certainly a very interesting idea and a wonder why we haven’t seen it before. The 120mm fan is housed on a black plastic catch which latches very easily to the side of the 47, 0.5mm heat fins.
Looking at the top of the Freezer 13 Pro shows you a better view of the heat fin design. While somewhat rectangular in shape, the fins have a notch in the center of the back and along the two back corners.
The four copper heatpipes form a U shape inside of the heatsink, which is typical in most of today’s CPU coolers. You’ll also notice the small 50mm fan on the base, which doesn’t have any protection, so you might want to keep any cables away when you install it.
The base of the heatsink, also composed of copper, already has a layer of thermal grease applied to it and the support brackets pre-attached. This saves you time and effort when installing the cooler.
