The Arctic Freezer 34 eSports Duo currently retails for a price in the region of £36. This, in terms of cooler pricing, very much represents the low-end of the pricing scale.
While this price is usually indicative of coolers which are better suited in a bin rather than in a PC, this one is very much an exception. This cooler provides amazing performance in a package that looks good and gives every indication that it’ll last you well beyond the huge 10-year warranty Arctic offers. Put simply, despite the low cost, I struggle to find any area where expensive has been spared!
When fitted to your PC, this cooler is an absolute pleasure. Yes, it may not have any RGB bells and whistles and yes, some people have an aesthetic hatred towards air coolers. To me though, this performs well and looks good while doing it. In terms of the actual installation, however, there will likely be more than a few difficulties for someone without experience.
I can’t imagine it would’ve cost Arctic too much more to provide an actual installation manual with this. In addition, while the fan attachment system works, it’s a design that doesn’t improve on (and is actually worse in my opinion) than that used by the vast majority of other manufacturers.
There are more than enough horror stories (and wasted money) surrounding low-cost coolers (both air and AIO). Enough to put a lot of people off this price-level of cooling solution. The Arctic 34 Freezer eSports Duo, however, really is a huge exception to that rule. Not only is it really inexpensive, but it’s also a superbly designed cooler that is more than capable of handling whatever your PC can throw at it.
Admittedly, this doesn’t fall within a practical remit of overclocking, but then again, if you’re buying coolers like this to overclock, you should really re-consider your hobby.
The Arctic 34 Freezer eSports Duo is the perfect definition of bang for buck. It’s inexpensive and performs at a level well-beyond that you would expect. My only concern is that the price tag may (for no other reason than prior bad experiences) put people off.
