s An overclocked Sandy Bridge E is probably not something Thermaltake even had in mind when designing the Frio OCK, and it is hotter than just about every modern CPU out there (with perhaps the exception of Ivy Bridge which has its own issues when...

The Thermaltake Frio OCK is well designed and performs exceptionally well. It definitely manages to keep up with some of the best coolers on the market today....

I'd like to thank our friends at Thermaltake for providing the FrioOCK for our review today. Thermaltake has refined and perfected what a truly exceptional heatsink should be when they created the FrioOCK. The massive size of the heatsink, combined...

We have to hand it to Thermaltake: Nearly everything about the Frio OCK is well thought out. The two 13cm fans are secured in a black, red, and blue cowling that clips on and off of the heatsink with ease, eliminating many of the installation...

One of the wonderful things about modern CPUs is that they overclock extremely well without putting out much heat. Modern Sandy Bridge processors overclock higher and more easily than first-gen i7 chips, while drawing less power and putting out less...

The Frio OCK from Thermaltake has made a very bold statement by claiming the title OCK (OverClocking King), but upon testing we can see that the cooler has what it takes to pull it off. With a bit of style it will keep the system looking vibrant....

The cooler weighs over a kilogram (1093grams) and comes with two 130mm fans arranged in a push-pull configuation that scale from 2100-to-1200RPM. Behind all the unncessary fan shroud is an aluminum fin tower split down the middle. ...

Proclaiming yourself the king is a pretty serious inference, so you had better have something to back it up, and the Thermaltake Frio OCK certainly does. But am I ready to break out the crown, or simply a tiara? Well, the Frio OCK certainly makes a...

The Lich King was the master and lord of the Scourge, and he ruled over them telepathically from the Frozen Throne on top of Icecrown. Well, I guess until I killed him about a year ago, but that is beside the point. The Thermaltake Frio OCK, a strange...

Overall the Frio OCK is a powerful cooler. While it can achieve some pretty good temperatures on high fan speeds, it’s just quite annoying to have your case sound like a car engine. I recommend using the fans anywhere between low-medium speeds to...

The Frio OCK provided some great cooling, I was thoroughly impressed. Installation was relatively easy and within a matter of minutes I had it up and running. Most of the time I might suggest having the fan setting turned down a bit if you don't...

The Thermaltake FrioOCK is definitely a piece of work, a high quality piece of work. The cooler performed as well as many of the top coolers on the market. Once again Thermaltake has proven to us and the masses why they are one of the top cooler as...

Properly installing a large tower heatsink can sometimes be a chore; the size and bulk of the cooler itself can get in the way of the mounting hardware. Such was not the case with this cooler, due in large part to the removable fan shroud. The...

With top performance and a great look, Thermaltake’s Frio OCK CPU cooler has really got it going on. Mounting is easy and straightforward with excellent support from the included manuals, and the fan control works flawlessly. The controller will...

OCK is actually an acronym for OverClocker King, and as the name suggests, is designed for overclocking. The only strange thing we noticed during our overclocking tests were some higher than expected load temperatures. The C/W number was still...

Please remember that these test results reflect our experience with each cooler on a specific motherboard, with a specific processor, BIOS revision, BCLK and voltage settings, and test programs. The results of this test cannot be directly compared to...

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...

The Thermaltake Frio OCK is a real winner, which has achieved a performance level that equals the best air coolers we have tested so far, including the Thermaltake Frio, which is a completely different cooler, despite its name.Although it is very loud...

The new Thermaltake cooler is totally worth checking out, especially for overclockers who need maximum cooling efficiency at all costs and do not mind the noise. And FrioOCK will prove absolutely up to their expectations. Today this cooler...

Thermaltake's Frio OCK is also a loud cooler by average standards with the fans running at full speed, but the cooler itself produced very high load level efficiency. In addition, the Frio OCK is very easy to install, and maintain with the removable...
