Arctic Freezer 36 air cooler boasts a massive day-one sale that makes it the best-value air cooler, ever.


Amazing value
Launch day discount
6-year warranty

Clip mounts need work
No older Intel support

Arctic continues its 23rd-anniversary celebration in the only way it knows how: discounting products the moment they release. It might be fresh on digital shelves, but you can get 23% off Arctic Freezer 36 for the next three months. I could get used to these day-one discounts.

Starting at £16.93, there isn’t another CPU cooler on the market that packs the same value. Even the premium tacked onto the ARGB white version brings it to £23.09. And just in case you’re wondering, ‘CO’ stands for continuous operation, designed with home servers in mind. No matter which model you choose, you get just shy of a quarter off its retail price.

As we say in our Arctic Freezer 36 review, the air cooler has a phenomenal price-to-performance ratio at full MSRP. After all, it contends with rivals that are triple the cost without factoring in the reduction. This markdown is simply a bonus that makes the device an absolute steal.

For one, it’s the most accessible blower we’ve used, thanks to its clip-on fans. You’ll need to be careful when prying them apart, but setting and forgetting has never been simpler. It’s stealthy and silent when running at full speed, clocking in quieter than any of the competition. It even tames our Intel Core i9-13900K better than other air solutions, approaching the performance of AIOs.

It might not seem like there’s a major rush to get one because this discount lasts until June 5. I’d recommend grabbing one sooner rather than later, however, as it’ll also be dependent on availability. I wouldn’t be surprised to see that out-of-stock sign crop up between now and then.

You could get your hands on one as soon as tomorrow, so long as you’re running an Amazon Prime subscription. Next-day delivery could complete your system in no time.
