   As expected by pairing a total of 4 mid-speed fans in push and pull configuration with a high fin density radiator and a high-speed pump ARCTIC has released one of the highest performance dual 120mm AIO liquid CPU coolers in the market today. Unfortunately that comes at a cost and although noise levels are actually quite low (still higher compared to even some triple 120mm AIO models) with a thickness of roughly 88mmn the Liquid Freezer 240 will simply not fit in most cases (clearance issues with mainboard components). Fortunately quite a few of the newest models to hit the market come with several mounting positions (offsets) for top radiators allowing the radiator to be as thick as it can get but the fact of the matter is that not everyone has one such PC case.


   Leaving out the quite impressive cooling efficiency of the Liquid Freezer 240 (for a dual 120mm AIO model) ARCTIC excels in yet another area, price. You see currently the Liquid Freezer 240 goes for no more than USD84.99 inside the USA (Amazon.com) and 95Euros inside the EU (Amazon.co.uk) and that’s a very reasonable price for what you’re getting. With that out of the way although at the end of the day the thickness of the Liquid Freezer 240 makes it a very specific product it’s still one of the best AIO models in the market today and thus it gets our Golden Award.
