The Arctic Liquid Freezer II review has been heavily requested by our viewers, and we’re finally delivering. In this review, we’re looking at thermal performance versus big air coolers (like Noctua’s NH-D15 or Deepcool’s Assassin III) and versus other liquid coolers (like the NZXT Kraken X62). We will be doing a tear-down video of this cooler separately and in short order, so check back for that. Testing includes thermals (AMD Ryzen 3950X, 3800X), coldplate levelness, linear feet per minute flow from the VRM fan, VRM thermal impact from the VRM fan on vs. off, acoustic performance, and more. A lot of people have asked us how the Arctic Liquid Freezer II performs vs. the Noctua NH-D15, the NZXT Kraken X62 or X63, and other coolers on the market. This video answers that question.
