Arctic Liquid Freezer III 280 A-RGB Review

Result and general impression …

Arctic has once again produced excellent all-in-one CPU water coolers with the new Arctic Liquid Freezer III series!

As is typical of the cooler specialists, they have once again developed a completely independent design and responded to the wishes of the community and the requirements of the new CPU generations. The result is a top water cooler with flawless workmanship and a 6-year manufacturer’s warranty.

The ease of assembly of the LF III is not yet at the highest level, but here too Arctic wants to improve as quickly as possible so that we no longer have any reason to complain.

On our test system, the cooling performance of the Liquid Freezer III is at least on a par with its predecessor and even surpasses it slightly. The noise level always remains pleasingly low, which is one of the particular strengths of the Arctic Liquid Freezer III.

With the upgrade of the VRM fan and the upgraded ARGB lighting as well as the multi-compatibility with the new AMD and Intel sockets, all aspects of a modern CPU water cooler are perfectly covered.

The Arctic Liquid Freezer III 280 A-RGB Black thus receives the coveted Purchase Tip Award!

Tip: In the interactive Fit for Fan guide, you can virtually try on the CPU coolers on the motherboard and for the most part even listen to them – the Arctic Liquid Freezer III 280 ARGB will be included in the next update.

For a comparison with other coolers, it is worth taking a look at our CPU cooler comparison 2021 on the Intel Core i5 PC and the CPU cooler comparison 2018, tested on an AMD AM4 PC system. Here is the CPU cooler chart 2016 on the Intel Core i5 PC and the CPU cooler comparison 2016, tested on an Intel Core i7 PC system. And here is the previous CPU cooler chart with CPU coolers before 2016. However, a direct comparison with our previously tested coolers is not possible, as the test system has changed fundamentally in the meantime.
