    Thermaltake showed off some of its upcoming CPU coolers at the ongoing Computex event. A star attraction was the Thermaltake Frio (pictured below, first to the left). The design is of the popular perpendicular aluminum fin array type. The cooler ships with one 120 mm fan, although it can hold one fan on either side. It measures 130mm x 92mm x 160 mm. The cooler packs retention modules to support almost every current CPU socket type: LGA-1366, LGA-1156, LGA-775, AM3/AM2+/AM2, s939, etc. Another cooler spotted was the SpinQ VT. This cooler is near-identical to the SpinQ in terms of its features, except for that the aluminum fins propagate perpendicular to the plane of the motherboard, while the fan blows air on to the motherboard.

    Heh It amaizes me what ppl will buy. I mean there are some limits of how much heat can a piece of copper or aluminium take away from an item and how much it can give away into air while you put X air ammount on it.
    What can actually change for better besides the fact that bigger = better ? Unless Im missing something and they intentionally make noob constructions to cause confusion.

    Looks to me like thermaltake is just trying to get back with some decent coolers. Their recent releases have not been very good performance wise. The SpinQ looked cool, but couldn't outperform the heavy hitters (noctua, thermalright, xiggy)

    That first cooler will no doubt block ram slots on a lot of motherboards, it just looks gigantic.

    They both look to be pretty good. That Spin Q was a nice design and took away a good amount of heat. That other cooler with 5 pipes looks like it can wick away a pretty good bit. What Id like to see is like a direct tunnel from the cooler (where the air blows out) to the outside of the case or the back exhaust fan.
