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.

Phantom Spirit 120 Evo

The Phantom Spirit 120 EVO has similar looks to the regular Phantom Spirit 120 with two 120 millimeter fans, subtle Thermalright logo, and a flat textured design on the heatsink top. One key difference between this cooler and other Phantom Spirit designs is subtle the ARGB accented fans. However, there are other versions of the Phantom Spirit with a more pronounce ARGB presence.

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.

Phantom Spirit 120 Evo

This cooler has a similar installation components as many of the mainstream Thermalright designs, which is one of the easier installation setups. One difference is the mount is painted black and the screws have a larger head. However, it also faces an issue regarding uninstalling this cooler, where the cooler is unable to slide/twist off the cooler to break the thermal paste seal. This might be necessary if the thermal paste has a strong hold between the cooler and the CPU.

Cooling Performance:

It keeps everything cool even when you're doing tough tasks or playing games. Its smart design helps it work well and keeps your computer cool.

Phantom Spirit 120 Evo

Featuring a seven heat pipe dual tower configuration and equipped with two 120mm fans, this compact cooler is adept at managing cooling requirements that were previously the domain of All-In-One cooling systems.

Noise Performance:

Freezer 34 eSports

The Arctic Freezer 34 eSports cooler is super quiet, thanks to its special fans and the way it's designed to move air. It's so quiet that you'll hardly notice it's working, but it still does a great job at cooling your computer.

Phantom Spirit 120 Evo

The Phantom Spirit 120 EVO variant distinguishes itself with a unique set of fans that provide increased airflow and air pressure. However, this enhancement comes with a trade-off: a higher noise level compared to other models in the Phantom Spirit range. As a result, while this cooler boasts a modern and stylish design, it might not be the ideal choice for those prioritizing a quiet computer setup.

The Arctic Freezer 34 eSports cooler is a top choice if you want something that works well, looks great, and is quiet. It's efficient, well-priced, and easy to install, making it perfect for all kinds of people who build computers, from casual users to serious gamers.

Phantom Spirit 120 Evo

The Phantom Spirit 120 EVO, maintaining the easy installation of Thermalright's designs, features a unique black mount and larger screws. It resembles the standard Phantom Spirit 120 in design, with subtle ARGB accented fans, but stands out with a seven heat pipe dual tower design for efficient cooling. However, its unique fans offer increased airflow and pressure at the cost of higher noise, posing a challenge for those seeking a quieter computer setup.
