Design and Aesthetics:

Freezer 34 eSports

The Arctic Freezer 34 eSports cooler features a cool and modern design, with bright colors that make it stand out in any computer setup. Its design ensures good airflow, which helps it effectively keep your computer cool. There are two versions of this cooler: one with two fans and the one we're discussing here, which has just one fan. Despite having a smaller part that connects to the CPU compared to other coolers, it still performs exceptionally well. It can compete with other fancy coolers like the Scythe Mugen 5 Rev.B, Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro 4, and the Hyper 212.

Dark Rock Pro 5 (Performance)

This cooler features a sleek black design that stands out. The signature Be-Quiet fan adds a unique touch, breaking away from the cooler's boxy appearance. Additionally, the top of the cooler boasts a clean design, contributing to a polished and refined look for your setup.

Install Notes:

Freezer 34 eSports

The installation process of the Freezer 34 eSports cooler is somewhat complex yet manageable, thanks to its user-friendly mounting system that is compatible with a variety of Intel and AMD sockets. It utilizes the default AMD backplate, secured with four independent screws, which then connect to the cooler mounting system. However, due to the four independent connection points, achieving a secure connection with all screws can be challenging compared to other systems that only have two. Furthermore, the cooler features a distinctive fan mounting system that attaches directly to the unit. While innovative, the placement of the fans can prove challenging, as the mounting system may detach from the cooler during fan installation. Despite these complexities, detailed instructions are provided, ensuring a smooth installation process for both first-time builders and experienced enthusiasts.

Dark Rock Pro 5 (Performance)

The Dark Rock Pro 5 marks a notable advancement over its predecessors, featuring a mounting system that aligns with those of most mainstream coolers. This iteration enhances the design by securing the mounting bracket directly to the cooler, a change from the prior generation. Fan installation sees improvements too; the front fan comes pre-attached, ensuring perfect alignment, while the middle fan is designed to slide in from the top, secured by the top mount instead of side brackets. These enhancements significantly improve the cooler's setup and performance compared to the previous generation. Additionally, given the option to change the power speed on the top of the cooler, the middle fan has a 5 pin connector to facilitate this functionality, which forces you to use their connection rather than direct control through the motherboard.
