Product Description

Designed for overclocking. That is the motto for the all-new Thermaltake Frio enthusiats CPU cooler. To get the most out of today's high-end processors from Intel or AMD, most enthusiasts turn to after-market CPU coolers for the added cooling. Thermaltake engineers pulled out all of their big guns to ensure the most stable and highest overclocking potential. Equipped with two ISGC 120mm fans that allow fan speeds to be manually adjusted to best fit different system configurations. While most enthusiats coolers today uses 6mm heatpipes, the Frio comes with five massive 8mm heatpipes to quickly and efficiently move the heat away from CPU for proper cooling. Universal mounting kit supplied can support all of Intel Core i5 & i7 (six-core ready) as well as AMD Phenom & Phenom II processors.

I'd been hitting 90C with the stock Intel cooler that came with my i7-920, and running into occasional BSODs due to heat. After installing the Frio, the CPU core temps have never exceeded 50C. That's a FORTY degree Celsius decrease in operating temperature and the box is much more stable.

The fans are quite a bit louder than the stock cooler, but being able to overclock the CPU and FSB speeds makes up for it. Just crank the speakers up a little bit and you don't even notice.

Installation was easy, but you do need access to the back of the motherboard, so I'd recommend installing this at build time instead of retrofitting later like I did.

I upgraded my stock AMD heat sink and fan to make sure my processor runs nice and cool in case i want to overclock... Previously while playing Battlefield 3 i was getting about 55C on the CPU and 105F case temp. Now my case temp is lower (thanks to more air movement and i also added another 120mm fan to the case), and my CPU temp during heavy gaming never gets above 40C ...My processor is AMD Phenom II X6 1100T black.

Large cooler, will probably block tall ram, make sure the width will no go over them before buying. My G.Skill Ripjaws just barely fit. Fans are both 3 pin? I read up on this first and was not mentioned in either of the pro reviews I read. ALL CPU fans should be 4 pin - allows much more control over them. I already had a fan controller so not a big deal to me. This is very loud when maxxed out - I can hear it from 30 feet away in another room - BUT it does cool extremely well. 4ghz AMD 1100t idles at under 25C, maxes out at 55C. This requires that you change the backplate on your motherboard to use it but it is very solidly held in place afterward. Recommended only for the overclocker club.

I use the Frio on an Intel Core i7-870 Lynnfield 2.93GHz. I have not and don't plan on overclocking the processor, albeit with this thing I could. The Frio dropped my temperatures by at least 20c and holding the temps on full load doesn't get about 70c.

This thing is massive. Everyone says that, of course, but it can be said again. The fans are on full blast in my case (I don't want to have to change them often so I just leave on full) and they are quietly comfortable with my case fans being louder than it.

The install was no problem, even had my mom do it, to prove a point (I'm 22 and it was for my computer. She thought it'd be super complicated and scary).

I didn't use the thermal grease that came with it, I used my own Arctic compound as it's generally better. I see this product lasting a long time and my computer's processor being cooled nicely (giving it longer life).

I'd recommend this for people who have Mid-tower to full towers. I was able to fit it into my Sonata Quiet... 2? case (super old case from Comp USA) just barely and after a while I upgraded to a Cooler Master Storm Scout case which gives it much more room.

Not an overclocker, but my core i7-2600 was always running hot with just the stock heatsink and fan that came with the chip. For a chip like the i7 which is prone to running hot, I don't know why intel would ship such a puny heatsink with it. When running some stress tests, my chip got up to 87 C in less than 2 minutes. Id' been looking at getting this particular cooler for a while because of the majority of positive reviews, great price, and great looks about it. Installation took me less than a half hour, and I didn't even have to remove my mother board thanks to the large cut out in the back of my Thermaltake Level 10GT case. This thing is HUGE. So meausre accordingly before you decide to purchase as it will likely cover up your first DIMM slot. I use corsair vengance high-profile RAM. So I was worried that this would be slightly too big, but on my EVGA Z68 motherboard, it fits perfectly--with literally only 1 millimeter of space between the edge of the fan and my first DIMM slot. However, if you have lower profile RAM, fitting it should not be a problem (but don't take my word for it. Especially if you DON'T have a full tower case).

After installation, ran the same stress test for over 15 minutes and never went over 47C. The thing works amazing! One thing I'm seeing people say a lot is that the fans are noisy. The fans are both VR. So they're only noisy when they're completely turned up on high. 'Thing sounds like it's gonna take off! But on the low setting, it couldn't be more silent. And with the fans on low, my temps still never went above 50C. Long story short: this thing rocks!

This is a very large heatsink fan and it is worth every penny! Right now my CPU is running at 27ºC (81ºF). That is pretty sweet considering all of the programs I am running at the moment as well as my game. All in all I am very pleased.

My case is the NZXT PHANTOM FULL SIZE tower and the fan fits inside perfectly provided you don't intend to install the optional 200mm side fan to accompany the other six fans.

Usually sits on top of first stick of ram if you use thicker fans.
The 48 watt deltas worked and fit just the same, though 250CFM seemed to not make a difference compared to the stock fans after 80 degrees.

Would easily cool below 65 degrees @4.8GHZ (no voltage increase) to the 2600k
4.4 on the haswell yields about 84 degrees

Ended up just using it on my 2nd machine and goin watercooled for the Haswell 4770k. It really does need it if you're overclocking. The miniscule increases seen with Sandy Bridge and earlier just don't happen with the Haswell....
