Arctic Breeze USB Desktop Fan
Article Publish Date:
A number of years ago Intel launched their ground breaking Core 2 branded processors, with this launch came some of the first quad core processors into the mainstream users home. I know it may be hard, but for those of you that can remember back to those days, and the Kentsfield Q6600 the amount of heat this chip would put out was amazing. In fact I can remember my office getting so hot from all the computers running, that I installed a small 5K BTU air conditioner in the window.
Enter Arctic, a company known for its cooling prowess, whether it’s GPU or CPU based. This time Arctic has chosen to go down a new path, one that involves less mounting hardware but doesn’t skimp on the cooling.
The product we have from Arctic today is aptly named the Arctic Breeze, a 92mm fan that’s sits on your desktop in order to reduce the temperature of your work area. Being USB powered there is no need to have an additional plug for it, or to stumble through your work drawers looking for batteries, simply plug the USB cord into an available port and your set, no drivers needed.
The increased heat emission of modern computers has put the production of powerful and quiet coolers beyond the means of most manufacturers. The raised noise levels of PC systems have a negative impact on productivity, since a quiet computer is the basis for pleasant working conditions. ARCTIC initiated the trend towards quiet cooling systems for desktop PCs in 2001 and has led the way ever since. When ARCTIC COOLING was founded, we began by focusing on Switzerland and Germany. In 2002 ARCTIC COOLING (HK) Ltd. was founded to develop relationships with our Asian production locations. From 2005, we started to expand business in North and South America and provide optimum service to our customer base there.
ARCTIC is now a leading manufacturer of CPU coolers, GPU coolers and case fans. In recent years we acquired a far-ranging expertise in the field of consumer electronics. The company’s product range has been further enhanced by new lines unrelated to PC cooling which was the reason behind the 2010 change in our brand name and logo: ARCTIC COOLING became the ARCTIC brand umbrella.
