Conclusion and overall impression …
The Arctic Freezer 33 TR CPU cooler convinced us in our tests and even tames the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X CPU!
In the test we were able to cool even a moderately overclocked AMD Threadripper 1950X CPU and Intel Core i9-7900X CPU good enough. Only with deactivated CPU power limits and overclocking does the Arctic Freezer 33 TR reach its limits like the previously tested Freezer 33 eSports One, which is quite legitimate for such air coolers.
All in all, the Arctic Freezer 33 TR tower cooler is again beautifully packaged, is assembled relatively quickly, is quiet, smooth running, space-saving and offers good cooling performance at a favourable price.
We would only appreciate printed assembly instructions and hexagonal screws or thumbscrews for installation without fan disassembly.
Tip: In the interactive Fit for Fan guide you can virtually fit coolers onto different motherboards and listen to many – the Arctic Freezer 33 TR will be included in the next update.
For a comparison with other coolers, take a look at our CPU cooler chart 2016 on the Intel Core i5 PC. Here is our CPU cooler comparison 2016, tested on an Intel Core i7 PC system. And here is again our CPU cooler chart with CPU coolers before 2016. A direct comparison to our previously tested coolers is however not possible here, since the test system has changed fundamentally in the meantime.
