As we all know in order to receive the best ever experience from our PC, first we must give it the very best hardware. But every overclock knows to prepare for the tricks that the inevitable high temperatures will play with his hardware. One of the main components intended to counter these tricks is the good CPU cooler. Our friends from Sunbeam supplied us with their new Core-Contact Freezer cooler. Is this cooler exactly what most users need? Let's find out.

Compared to NH-C12P this cooler is a little heavier and almost as big, yet much more affordable. Here are its specifications:

  • Height (without fan) - 155mm
  • Width (without fan) - 104mm
  • Depth (without fan) - 125mm
  • Weight (without fan) - 590 gram
  • Material - copper (heatpipes), aluminum (plates)
  • Compatibility - all AMD AM2 & AMD S-754/939/940 and Intel LGA 775

MFDB Fan specifications

  • Size - 120мм
  • Speed - 1000-2000 RPM (+/- 10%)
  • Air flow - 90.65 CFM(Max)
  • Acoustic noise - 16db-20db (+/- 10%)
  • Rated voltage - 12V
  • Life - 50 000 часа

The box also contains:

  • 2х brackets for attaching the fan to the cooler
  • 1х bracket for mounting to Intel LGA775
  • 4х attaching pins
  • Fan Controller
  • 1x screw for fixation of the Fan Controller-а
  • 1x tuce of Tuniq TX-2 thermal paste

The dimensions of the cooler are similar to the ones of Noctua NH-C12P, but it is heavier by about 30 gram. It has 4 heatpipes, just like Noctua NH-U12P, that is much bigger and heavier. Now it's time for a closer look.
