Arctic Freezer A13 X CPU Air Cooler :
The Arctic Freezer A13 X is a compact CPU cooler with one 100 mm fan. It benefits from an improved heatsink design and a reworked heat pipe layout. In conjunction with the fan, which is optimised for high static pressure, ARCTIC was been able to significantly
improve the Arctic Freezer A13 X cooling performance. It is supplied with pre-applied ARCTIC MX-2 thermal compound and has a simple
• Compatible with AMD® AM4 socket
• Pre-applied MX-2 thermal paste
• Extended lifespan thanks to low motor temperature
• Lower power consumption and less vibration with new motor technology
• Offset heat pipes ensure optimal heat dissipation
SMALL FOOTPRINT FOR OPTIMAL COMPATIBILLITY
The Arctic Freezer A13 X combines a compact advanced heat sink design with 3 direct touch heat pipes. In combination with the fan designed for static pressure, an optimal cooling performance is achieved despite the comparatively small dimensions. The Freezer A13 X has an installation height of only 137 mm and there are no limitations in RAM compatibility.
PRE-APPLIED MX-2 THERMAL PASTE
Pre-applied, high-performing MX-2 thermal paste ensures quick and clean assembly.
LONGER LIFESPAN THANKS TO ITS LOW MOTOR TEMPERATURE
The Arctic Freezer A13 X uses a fan motor newly developed by ARCTIC. This runs less audibly and more efficiently, so that the temperature of the coils is 20 °C lower than with conventional motors. This increases the lifespan of the fans considerably, allowing ARCTIC to grant a 6-year warranty period for the Freezer A13 X.
OFFSET HEAT PIPES ENABLE OPTIMAL HEAT DISSIPATION
The direct touch heat pipes attached to the Freezer A13 X and an optimised design of the 44 cooling fins together ensure that the heat from the CPU can be ideally removed and released into the air.
P-FAN FOR INCREASED PERFORMANCE
Inspired by the P-series, the Freezer A13 X’s fan benefits from all of the advantages of P-fans:
- High static pressure for increased cooling performance
- Broad RPM range
- Lower power consumption
- Less vibration
- PWM for synchronous fan control

FLUID DYNAMIC BEARING
Thanks to a combination of alloy and lubricant developed in Germany, the friction within the bearing is reduced, leading to greater efficiency. In this way, less heat is generated, there is less bearing noise and the life of the fan is extended.
DIRECT TOUCH HEAT PIPES
The Arctic Freezer A13 X uses direct touch heat pipes. This ensures that the heat to be dissipated is transferred directly to the heat pipes without an additional material layer, and transported into the heatsink via the pipes.
MORE COOLING CAPACITY WITH FREEZER A13 X
The Arctic Freezer A13 X sets new standards in cooling. Proven to outperform its predecessor in cooling capacity.
MORE EFFICIENT AND WHISPER QUIET
In addition to operating more quietly, even at maximum speed, the Freezer A13 X’s built-in fan motor is also much more efficient.
The power consumption was reduced from 0.18 A to 0.07 A, which corresponds to an effective saving of 60 % in power consumption. ARCTIC engineers were also able to reduce the volume by 40 %, allowing the Freezer A13 X to run at a whisper-quiet 0.3 sone when at maximum speed.
