Arctic Cooling has a pair of coolers, one larger model for overclockers and a smaller model for those sticking to stock speeds.  The Freezer 13 is 123mm x  96mm x 130mm and weights in at 695g with its 92mm fan and should fit in the vast majority of ATX cases.  The Freezer i30 is larger at 100mm x 139mm x 161mm and 900g with the single 120mm fan it utilizes.  [H]ard|OCP used an mATX board to test these coolers and while the Freezer 13 caused no problems, the i30 blocked some of their DIMM slots which is worth bearing in mind if you are setting up a system.  Read their full review to see how these coolers perform under load.

"We are today reviewing two of Arctic Cooling's new CPU coolers. Both use fans for cooling. The Freezer i30 boasts enthusiast features with overclocking in mind, the Freezer 13 comes in a smaller package with sound levels in mind but still espouses a cooling capacity of 200 watts with near silence."

Arctic Cooling's AMD only Freezer A30

Sometimes cooler manufacturers target one of their products specifically to a CPU manufacturer and that is what Arctic Cooling has done with the Freezer A30.  This 905g, 162mm x 137mm x 97mm is only designed to fit Socket AM2+, AM3+ and FM1 motherboards, which allows for greater flexibility in the orientation of the mounting brackets.  FrostyTech tested it with the fan at both high and low speed settings and found this to be a great heatsink both for high powered systems that need a lot of cooling as well as those systems which need to operate quietly.

"The Freezer A30 heatsink is an updated version of the AC Freezer 13 Pro, but this time around it's shed its copper base plate for bare heatpipes and had its mounting brackets restricted to AMD processors. The Freezer A30 stands 162mm tall, is built around a familiar tower-style-exposed-heatpipe-heatsink format and weighs a hefty 905 grams. The cooler comes with a single 120mm PWM fan which is mounted to the aluminum fin stack via a muscular plastic fan shroud. No additional fans can be mounted."
