Let's talk about theArctic Freezer 34 Esports DUO, for an air cooler which by now has a fundamental value in the market as it combines good performance with rather compact dimensions.

Let's find out in the white version that Arctic provided us for the review!

Arctic Freezer 34 Esports DUO • Technical specifications

Il sample provided to us by Arctic it's the version DUO of the classic Freezer 34 Esports, which therefore has two fans rather than just one.

THEArctic Freezer 34 Esports DUO it is a relatively small and inexpensive air cooler.

It is equipped with only 4 heatpipes which, however, seem to do an excellent job of dissipation.

Il instruction manual it is not available in paper version but can be viewed via QR code.

Arctic Freezer 34 Esports DUO • Test and performance

Tests were conducted for 10 minutes of idle CPU idle and subsequently for 10 minutes of CPU stress with one stress test su AIDA64Extreme.

The temperatures shown below are indicative as they are sometimes also calculated with mathematical relationships to be able to be inserted all in the same graph.

In fact, the tests were conducted at different ambient temperatures.

The data present therefore represents an average of the values ​​recorded in idle ed in full load within the 10 minutes of testing.

Arctic Freezer 34 Esports DUO • Test and performance

Il Freezer 34 Esports DUO he manages to perform better than his partner Freezer 50 is better than SilentiumPc Fera 3 EVO which is in the same price range.

Compared to the giants in the graph, the distances are relatively minimal but in practice, in the test we conducted, with a temperature of 29% il 34 Esports DUO it was detached from Noctua NH-D15 of just 3 degrees.

Reporting the value by subtracting the ambient temperature and then approximating we obtained a shorter distance but which still gives the idea.

This is a heatsink designed for those who do not overexert themselves CPU, can safely carry loads in Gaming and even under stress.

In the case of prolonged efforts on more expensive processors such as Intel i9 o Ryzen 9 it would be absolutely recommended to bet on something else.

In use with ours Ryzen 3700X il cooler has proven to have excellent performance / price ratio.

Arctic Freezer 34 Esports DUO • Test full load

As we can see from the test in full load the maximum spikes are also around 85 degrees, the minimum ones around 75 degrees.

All with almost 29 degrees of ambient temperature, which are certainly many, and with a 100% load. In other words, a worst case scenario.

Arctic Freezer 34 Esports DUO • Fitment, Appearance and Build Quality

The assembly of the Freezer 34 Esports DUO it was all in all simple and intuitive.

I have seen more precise installation systems than that of the following heatsink, which is still excellent although not flawless.

La build quality is outstanding, both of the armor of the cooler that also of 120mm Bionix P fans which are included in the package.

Il heatsink it looks tough and well built even to the eye.

The packaging inside which it is supplied is well organized.

Aesthetically speaking the Freezer 34 Esports DUO it is a real gem of elegance.

Especially the white version that was made available to us for review.

Arctic Freezer 34 Esports DUO • Conclusions

THEArctic Freezer 34 Esports DUO it is certainly an absolutely valid product.

I believe it is one of the best air coolers for value for money, as it is also able to handle high-end processors without particularly struggling.

The price is balanced with the performance and the rest of the competition on the market.
