Quality (30% of the total score) The quality of the Thermaltake Frio cooler is well above average. The body of the cooler is well designed and very well made, with no imperfections and/or sharp edges. Thermaltake paid a lot of attention to polishing...

I have always considered Thermaltake to be one of the premier manufacturers of cases and cooling products; even though I haven't always been a fan of all of their products. With the loud design of many products entering the market today, it seems...

WE'RE SORRY, WE CAN'T QUITE HEAR YOU The Thermaltake Frio is a hefty cooler in the dual-fan skyscraper tradition. With both fans attached, it’s a staggering 4.75x5.37x6.5 inches and clocks in at two pounds, 10.6 ounces. It’s not the...

Thermaltake did a great job with the Frio. It reaches the same cooling performance of the most efficient cooler we tested so far, which means it is a true high-end air cooler. As expected on a top-performance cooler, its weak point is its noise level,...

From the onset when I saw ‘Designed for Overclocking’ on the box it was clear the Frio was meant to perform, and with that statement on the box it better. On this front the Frio delivered as it matched the performance of other top air...

A reasonable price tag combined with overclocking capabilities make the Thermaltake Frio quite an attractive cooler. Physically, it's a pretty large model, which may cause restrictions in some cases. That being said, I'm a fan of it's facade...

Thermaltake's Frio overall is an excellent cooler. The price is well within reason even for someone on a tight budget. It includes mounting hardware for use on any modern CPU socket including both AMD and Intel. With its unique new design coupled...

The Frio is an excellent cooler and so far I haven't really touched on its best aspect, its price. At around £40, it provides performance that's on par or slightly trailing the best air coolers out there, and considering the inclusion of...

At first I was very skeptical about the Frio. Having had a few Thermaltake products before and being left slightly unimpressed by them I hoped the Frio wouldn't be the same. To my delight and surprise this particular cooler turned out to be a...

It has been a long, long time since Thermaltake was able to seriously wow us with a product that claimed excellent cooling performance. Granted, past products always came with enough marketing mumbo jumbo to make buyers think they were buying a cooler...

Even with one low-speed fan attached, the Thermaltake Frio managed to provide better cooling than the excellent Titan Fenrir (with its fan at low speed) on both Intel sockets. Better still, for overclockers who can handle the noise, the Frio was the...

The Thermaltake Frio is an all around great performer especially for an all-in-one cooler. It isn’t very often that we see a first revision CPU cooler perform so well out of the gate. Besides the fact that it usually takes one or two revisions to...

With slightly better fan selection this product would have scored even higher than it did today, however I still highly recommend it, because for under £40 you really aren’t going to get a better air...

After the dust settled, I must say that I was very impressed with Thermaltake's FRIO. For ~$59.99 USD, you get one hell of a performer that is capable of hanging with the best of the best in terms of currently available models across all...

We'd like to thank our friends at Thermaltake for providing the Frio universal heatsink for our review today. There were a lot of good qualities about the Frio that I think will appeal to basic users and overclockers alike. The easy of...

The Themaltake Frio is everything you want from a CPU cooler: A great price and even better performance. Be sure to keep the Frio on your wishlist!...

Performance:The Thermaltake Frio CPU Cooler did its job well, at low and high speeds. The temperature difference compared to the noise difference is very considerable, but if you need that extra few degrees for piece of mind, it isn't an unbearable...

It's great to see Thermaltake finally moving away from using gimmicks to try and sell coolers, and moving into the realms of less is more. There's no wacky designs and no fans with 40 different colour LED's. The mount is so simple I think...

Thermaltake have finally produced an excellent high performance heatsink worthy of FrostyTech's Top 5 Heatsink chart. All it took was two fans, five 8mm diameter heatpipes, a 1kg mass of metal and a little concentrated effort. ...

After getting the chance to test the Thermaltake Frio CPU cooler I must say I'm overall pretty happy with it. This cooler is a heavy cooler, weighing in at over 1kg, however the performance it provides will make you quickly forget about its weight....
