Liquid Freezer II 280 and 360 supporting AMD Ryzen™ 3000XT Series Processors

AMD Ryzen Processor 3000xt and Liquid freezer 2

Are you planning to give your PC a boost with a new AMD Ryzen™ 3000XT Series processor?

As a close partner of AMD, we at ARCTIC have great news for you: Liquid Freezer II 280 and 360 are compatible with the new AMD Ryzen™ 3000XT Series processors with award-winning “Zen 2” architecture – no customization necessary.

With improved boost frequencies – up to 4.7GHz on select processors, improved 6/8/12-core models, unlocked overclocking and large caches – these processors are purpose-built to tear through your games, art, and work alike.

The AMD X570 and B550 chipsets give enthusiast motherboards all the features other platforms don’t: PCIe® 4.0 support, unlocked tweaking, and processor upgrade support.

The general cooling guidance from AMD for the Ryzen™ 3000XT series is identical to the AMD Ryzen™ 9 3950X. AMD recommends using a high-performance cooler from their recommended list, with 280mm AIOs being amongst the best. Some of ARCTIC’s older cooling models, like the Freezer 34 eSports DUO, are also compatible with the 3000XT processors; however, their performance, in terms of power, would be limited. But stay tuned – we just might have some further models suitable for these processors coming soon!

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 Freezer 34 series offers high quality products with high powered performance. The series consists of the standard Freezer 34 model, the Freezer 34 CO, the Freezer 34 eSports, and the Freezer 34 eSports DUO in Push-Pull-Configuration. The Freezer 34 coolers come with all the perks of ARCTIC’s high static pressure P-fans: an extended life span, a wide RPM range, lower power consumption, high quality bearings and less vibration.

Freezer 12 Series

Freezer 12 and Freezer 12 CO

The Freezer 12 offers particularly low noise levels, high cooling capacity and versatile installation options.As a semi-passive cooler, the Freezer 12 also works extremely efficiently, as the fan only starts up at a PWM signal with 40 % pulse width.

Liquid Freezer II (COMING SOON)

Liquid Freezer 2

The highly-anticipated All-In-One CPU Water Cooler Liquid Freezer II, which will be released in various sizes in September 2019, will also be compatible with the AM4 socket. For further inquiries, contact ARCTIC support (support@arctic.ac)

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.
