It doesn’t matter what language you say it in, if your an over-clocker, you need your processor to stay cold. If you are not looking to dive into to water cooling then Thermaltake’s Frio could be the answer. Let’s take a look.
It is obvious from their site, Thermaltake wants to let the specifications speak for themselves. Let’s see what we can glean.
Ultimate Overclocking Thermal Structure Design
- excellent cooling capacity – supports 220W
- 0.5mm aluminum fins with large surface for heat dissipation
- 5 x Ø8 mm-U-shape copper heat pipes for accelerated heat conduction
- tower side flow design efficiently optimizes cooling performance.
Ultra Powerful Dual 120mm VR™ Fan and Eye-Catching Cover
- 120 mm VR™ Fan, adjustable between 1200 and 2500 RPM max. for best overclocking performance
- additional 120mm Fan enhances cooling performance
- black and red cooler top add aesthetical appearance
Universal Socket Compatibility & Accessory Package
- universal socket support:
- Intel: LGA1366, LGA1156, LGA775
- AMD: AM3, AM2+, AM2
- premium thermal grease maximizes heat transfer from the CPU into the cooler copper base for rapid dissipation
With dual or single 120mm fans and speed controls for each fan, their is an abundance of cooling capability here. The five heat pipes, in conjunction with the aluminum fins, is a standard design. With Intel’s I7 monsters coming in at 130 watts stock, the 220 watt rating on this cooler should keep things very cool.
