Thermaltake Frio OCK Review

This cooler does have the power to give overclockers what they need to push their CPUs. Overclocking headroom is definitely there if that’s what you plan to use this for. Thermaltake have been in the CPU cooler business for many years now By Motherboards.org

The summer heat is here and today we are taking a look at the new Frio OCK CPU cooler from Thermaltake. This is an air-cooler that features a dual fan design that’s compatible with just about every Intel and AMD socket on the market. We did have an initial problem with the cooler. The board that we were initially testing it on had some clearance issues with the MOSFET heat-sink next to the CPU socket. With a quick call to Thermaltake they were able to remedy the situation. This is the kind of thing that inspires confidence in a company. Granted, there probably aren’t very many boards that would have had this issue, but for some it would definitely have been an issue. This cooler currently retails for about 65 to 80 dollars online. This puts it at the mid to high-end range of coolers.
