Warranty 6 years

Meanwhile, the warranty for all Liquid Freezer II coolers has been increased to 6 years. Compatibility exists for the Intel sockets 115x, 1200, 2011-3 and 2066 and now also for the socket LGA 1700. Despite a larger heatspreader for Intel’s 12th Gen. Core CPUs, Arctic guarantees optimal heat dissipation with the Liquid Freezer 2 water cooler. Unfortunately, there are now some motherboards with LGA 1700 socket from different manufacturers known, where the Liquid Freezer 2 water cooler can not be mounted due to space limitations. On the following page you can check if your own motherboard is affected:

In terms of AMD, only socket AM4 is now supported, although for AMD Ryzen 3000/5000 (Zen2 / Zen3) CPUs the cooler can be mounted offset to better place the cooler over the hotspot of the CPU. The mounting holes for AM3 have since been removed from the brackets.
