ARCTIC SNEAK PEEK: Freezer 50 TR for AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™

Freezer_50_TR_RGB

ARCTIC’s engineers have been hard at work all year, improving our old products and creating new ones. Today’s Sneak Peek product falls into the later category: introducing the Freezer 50 TR, a Dual Tower CPU Cooler for AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ with A-RGB.

An extremely powerful cooling solution for the AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™, the Freezer 50 TR is also ARCTIC’s first-ever CPU cooler equipped with fully addressable RGB lighting, allowing you to customize it to your heart’s content.

We asked our Technical Director Vincent Andre what’s so special about this cooler and how the development process went.

Everyone’s really curious about the technical details of Freezer 50 TR. What can you share with us?

As for the Freezer 50 TR, it was a project very close to our hearts, since we’ve been an AMD partner from the very first generation of Threadripper. Our internal goal was to create the best air cooler for Threadripper; based on what’s currently on the market, we feel confident that this goal has been achieved, and I am proud of the work the team delivered. The Freezer 50 TR is a dual-tower, dual-fan air cooler with eight 6mm heat pipes to carry heat to the aluminum fins to be dissipated, so nothing ground-breaking in the technology. What’s special about its creation are the many, many hours of development that went into it. We honed every aspect of its construction to squeeze out performance capable of cooling the monster that is Threadripper. The design was also a key element of this product. There were countless hours of back and forth between the engineer and the designer to ensure that we could phase in the performance optimization while maintaining a visually pleasing design. This was a tremendous team effort, and the results are even more appreciable for that reason.

With the Freezer 50 TR, RGB will finally be part of ARCTIC product family. Can customers expect more RGB products in near future?

Yes, but let me here emphasize that the Freezer 50 TR is A-RGB, meaning each LED is individually addressable. We have made it so that a user can directly plug it into their motherboard if it is equipped with an A-RGB header. For the others, a controller will be available as a part of a bundle. And yes, we will have more products coming up soon– for instance, A-RGB fans.

Visuals play an important role for gamers and modders, especially when they’re planning their setups. Which other visual trends (aside from RGB) are you following with these new products?

We do not really follow specific design trends, though we have defined some design elements that we are conveying through the product portfolio. This way, not just gamers, but also all other customers, can have a cohesive design when they choose ARCTIC products for their PC cooling (something I would heavily recommend 😊). The process of incorporating these design elements has been started already in the latest products and will be further enhanced in the future. RGB and A-RGB will be more present in future products, but we will also keep in mind what made ARCTIC’s reputation: the value for money. So, our key focus will still be to bring great products at great price. Now, some of those products will be glowing in multiple colours, too.

Both of these coolers are part of a larger series (ARCTIC Freezers). Which models we can expect next?

We’re working on upcoming products to complete or renew the ARCTIC CPU Cooler portfolio. The lower-priced end of the portfolio was updated last year with the release of the Alpine 12 and AM4 series, and we’re now replacing the Liquid Freezer. We’re opening a new segment with the beefy Freezer 50 TR, which will have a younger sibling, the Freezer 50, aimed at Intel 115x/2066 and AMD AM4 sockets. The rest of the Freezer portfolio will slowly be replaced by new and improved coolers.

On the fans front, we’ve also got some incoming products with, for instance, the A-RGB fan I mentioned.

Plenty of exciting things coming up!!!

The New Alpine CPU Coolers from ARCTIC


ARCTIC Alpine CPU Cooler Series

With the new Alpine 12 and Alpine AM4 series, we are updating our portfolio of cost-effective CPU coolers.

The Alpine 12 series is designed for the 115x sockets from Intel, while the Alpine AM4 series is exclusively compatible with the namesake AM4 socket from AMD. Alpine AM4 series, except the Passive, are also backward compatible with AM3+, AM3, AM2+, AM2, FM2 and FM1.

The Alpine 12 Passive and Alpine AM4 Passive, available since summer 2018, are now being supplemented with the launch of the Alpine 12 and Alpine 12 CO. Further versions for AMD and Intel will follow shortly. The older versions Alpine 11, Alpine 20, Alpine 64 and Alpine M1 are end-of-life products that will no longer be produced.

Product Name Max. TDP Compatibility Availability
Alpine 12 95 W Intel 115x 10 / 2018
Alpine 12 CO 100 W Intel 115x 10 / 2018
Alpine 12 LP 75W Intel 115x 12 / 2018
Alpine 12 Passive 47 W Intel 115x 07 / 2018
Alpine AM4 95 W AMD AM4, AM3+, AM3, AM2+, AM2, FM2, FM1 Q1 2019
Alpine AM4 CO 100 W AMD AM4, AM3+, AM3, AM2+, AM2, FM2, FM1 Q1 2019
Alpine AM4 LP 75 W AMD AM4, AM3+, AM3, AM2+, AM2, FM2, FM1 Q1 2019
Alpine AM4 Passive 47 W AMD AM4 07 / 2018

 

Newly developed heatsinks

All new Alpine CPU coolers feature newly developed heatsinks.

The passive versions achieve an optimized heat dissipation to the environment through the black anodization of the heatsink. This noticeably increases the cooling performance in a fanless system.

The actively cooled Alpine 12 and AM4 models in turn have a new radial heatsink. The high thermal conductivity of the aluminum is fully retained in a new type of extrusion.

The novel production process makes it possible to produce a powerful and at the same time very compact heatsink. The particularly fine cooling fins of the new Alpine coolers are fanned out in a Y-shape. This increases the surface area of the heatsink and also improves the cooling performance.

Affordable CPU cooler for AMD and Intel

All actively cooled Alpine 12 and Alpine AM4 models use our advanced, PWM-controlled fan technology. As a result, all Alpine coolers run very efficiently, with low power consumption and at the same time within a very wide RPM range. In addition, the new Alpine series supports a 0 dB mode – if the a PWM signal drops below 5%, the fans turn off, ensuring absolutely silent cooling of the CPU.

All new Alpine 12 and Alpine AM4 CPU coolers are delivered with pre-applied MX-2 thermal compound. This guarantees a quick and easy installation.

AMDs new Ryzen Raven Ridge Processors

At this year’s CES in Las Vegas, AMD unveiled their new power-efficient Ryzen-based APUs for mobile as well as desktop devices.

Officially titled “AMD Ryzen Desktop Processor with Radeon Vega Graphics”, the first announced products of this lineup were the AMD Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G. Both processors have 4 CPU cores, but the Ryzen 5 version has 8 threads, whereas the Ryzen 3 has only 4 threads. The TDP of both processors is 65 W.

The graphics cards have a total of 11 Compute Units (CU) in the Ryzen 5 2400G and 8 CUs in the Ryzen 3 2200G.

The new AMD Ryzen Desktop APU will be available from February 12th on.

AMD Ryzen Desktop Prozessor mit Radeon Vega Graphics

The APU combines the Ryzen CPU and the new AMD Radeon Vega GPU on one chip, eliminating the need for additional external graphics solution for simple gaming and office tasks.

The performance of the graphics chip is comparable to an entry level graphics cards – thereby the APU will not allow gaming in maximum details with 4K resolution for modern and more demanding titles.

The new AMD processors with integrated graphics unit are an interesting option for system builders and users with lower gaming requirements, who up until now could only take Intel’s CPUs, which have included graphics chips for several generations.

Full compatibility for ARCTIC CPU Cooler

As the new AMD APUs use the existing socket AM4, all ARCTIC CPU coolers for AM4 are of course still compatible.

Depending on the budget and intended use, we offer numerous suitable CPU coolers for AMD’s new processors, from budget models like the Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 and the Freezer 12 to the powerful Freezer 33 eSports Edition with two BioniX 120mm fans.

How to cool AMD Ryzen Threadripper Processors?

The Ryzen Threadripper is the new CPU from AMD for high-end systems – which possibilities do you have to efficiently cool a CPU with up to 16 cores?

Up to 16 cores and 32 threads, 4,096 pins, 64 PCI-E 3.0 lanes, quad-channel DDR4 RAM and 180 W TDP: The new AMD Ryzen Threadripper are very powerful CPU and with sufficient reserves even for demanding tasks.

The physical dimension of the Threadripper alone show the need for a powerful cooling solution. With the mentioned 4,096 pins the CPUs are significantly larger than other processors for private use.

Due to the size the new SocketTR4 was developed with its own chipset, X399. Cooling solutions, which still fit on equally new AMD AM4 socket, can’t be mounted on sTR4 Mainboards.

With prices starting at 800 EUR, the CPUs are not a bargain, but they are among the most powerful processors a home user can currently buy. Threadripper Processors promise excellent performance in particularly when multiple CPU Cores are needed, e.g. for gaming, video rendering, and other demanding applications.

But how to cool such large and powerful processors effectively?

Adjusted CPU Cooler needed

Because of the larger design, conventional CPU air coolers, which are compatible with AMD’s AM4 Socket and are designed for regular Ryzen processors, won’t fit the sTR4 for Threadripper CPUs.

Threadripper CPU coolers can, however, usually also be mounted and used on Ryzen processors in the AM4 socket.

Due to the high performance and the resulting high heat level of about 180 W TDP, AMD conducted extensive tests to check the compatibility of the cooling solutions available on the market.

The list of AMD certified Tthreadripper CPU coolers can be found here.

Threadripper CPU Cooler from ARCTIC

Since we are a close partner of AMD, a mounting kit for our CPU coolers of the Liquid Freezer series are provided with each Threadripper CPU. This allows the Liquid Frezer 120, Liquid Freezer 240 and Liquid Freezer 360 to be used to cool Threadripper CPUs.

ARCTIC Freezer 33 TR

Threadripper certified: The new ARCTIC Freezer 33 TR

If, on the other hand, you prefer regular air cooling for Threadripper, we recommend our newly developed Freezer 33 TR. It is designed for CPU with a TDP of up to 200 W.

The Liquid Freezer 240, 360 and the Freezer 33 TR are also certified by AMD as a cooling solution for Threadripper Processors.

So if you are interested in the AMD Ryzen Threadripper and wonder how it can cool it effectively and quietly, we from ARCTIC provide powerful yet silent Threadripper CPU Cooler.

Semi passive and virtually silent Tower CPU Coolers for small systems

With the Freezer 12 and Freezer 12 CO, ARCTIC now offers two compact CPU coolers, which are multi-compatible and also suitable for the AMD Ryzen AM4 socket. The successors of the Freezer 11 series convince all along the line with regards to noise level, cooling capacity, mounting versatility and transport-proofness. As semi passive coolers, the Freezer 12 and Freezer 12 CO also work extremely efficiently as the fan only starts up at a PWM signal with 40 % pulse width.

The fan runs only when it is actually needed, i.e. with increased CPU utilization. In combination with the vibration absorption rubber mounts of the fan, this leads to almost silent operation even at its maximum cooling performance of 150 watts. The 92 mm fan provides an improved air flow, three double sided direct touch heat pipes and 45 aluminum fins ensure an optimal heat dissipation and an excellent cooling power. Unlike the predecessor Freezer 11 series, the Freezer 12 and Freezer 12 CO are multi-compatible and fit Intel sockets as well as AMD AM4.

The Freezer 12 CO is specifically designed for continuous operation. With its high-precision dual ball bearing, the cooler lasts five times as long as other coolers with standard bearings.

Main Features Freezer 12 / Freezer 12 CO
• Compatible with Intel & AMD socket
• Passive Operation up to 40 % PWM
• Improved airflow for more efficient cooling performance
• Offset heat pipes ensure optimal heat dissipation
• Improved fan controller made in Germany
• Anti-vibration rubbers for quiet operation
• Installation in all four directions possible
• Transport-proof mounting with backplate
