Thermaltake, the leader and pioneer in PC thermal solutions, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, with “delivering the perfect user experiences” as our mission and carrying the corporate vision of “building Thermaltake Technology into a cultural brand for the enjoyment of entertainment, e-Sports, technology and lifestyle.” This October, featuring the Thermaltake Frio Advanced CPU cooler - a CPU cooler that incorporated some of the most up-to-date CPU cooler technologies and persevered the greatnesses from its predecessors of Frio and Frio OCK which not only creating a new phenomenon for overclockers but also set another signature for the Frio Series.



State-Of-The-Art Technology
Unlike the traditional welding between the heat-pipe with the heat-sink which created extra welding points acting as heat collectors on the heat-sink, the Thermaltake Frio Advanced consolidated the most up-to-dated CPU cooler technology using mechanical assembling on the heat-pipe with the heat-sink which provides a precise and direct contact for flawless heat transmission from the CPU to the heat-sink.

Plus, the 5 x Ø6 mm heat-pipes with direct touch to the CPU surface and high density aluminum fins allow larger surface area that not only increased heat conductivity but also grant for a better heat dissipation. Moreover, the Thermaltake has also incorporated the Pulse-width modulation (PWM) technique to control the speed of the Frio Advanced’s dual 13cm fans from 800~2000 RPM in favor of a smarter fan noise management for overclockers.

The Thermaltake Frio Advanced CPU cooler has preserved some of the great functionalities from its predecessors of Frio and Frio OCK like the dual 13cm over-clocking of high performance red bladed fans which generate excellent cooling power, tool-less fan installation provides great convenience, vibration-absorbent gaskets decrease noise during operation and all-in-one back-plate design that support the up to latest Intel LGA 2011 and all AMD platforms for overclockers. The Frio Advanced CPU cooler is one true CPU air cooler which support up to 230w that Thermaltake could offer to the overclock enthusiasts.

Heat-pipe Direct Touch Technology:
  • 5 x Ø6mm heat-pipes directly touch CPU
  • Dual 13cm Over-clocking Fan: Dual high performance fans generate excellent cooling power
  • Tool-less fan installation: Tool-less design for fan installation
  • All-in-one back-plate design: Universal sockets support up to latest Intel LGA 2011 and all AMD platforms

Yea, why would they cover a significant portion of the fin area with a square shroud outside of the fan blades is perplexing. Just to make it look good? I can understand channelling airflow, but that's not the way to do it.

It *is* a toy, that's the problem.

mechanical contact? i think they used the heat, assemble shrink technique.

aluminium has a higher coefficient of thermal expansion so the hotter the heatsink gets the looser the mechanical contact becomes.

230 Watt cooling... uhuh, and how much cooling does it offer?
It's all well and good to say up to 230W, but that could mean the cpu is running at 80C. I don't know about the rest of you, but I don't want a cpu at extremely high temps, max load.
I wish these manufacturers would show graphs of cooling performance (wattage vs temp.), with representative sample graphs from all the cpu sockets.

Just wait for a good review of it and you will have a better answer than they are likely to provide themselves.

Still has some gaps between the DHT pipes probably would perform a little better without the gaps. Waiting for a review...

It looks alright. My wife wants it cause its red and goes well with her red n black pc lol. They should have closed the sides up so the air just passes and no leak out the sides IMO. Alot of coolers just look alike. Not my taste. But hey the wife wants it.

How, pray tell?
On both my old 965BE and my current 2600K, the results are the same regardless. As soon as the power draw goes over 115w, temps go beyond the CPU max.
It's nothing I'm doing wrong, and everything about the cooler not living up to spec.

Inceptor pretty much summed it up

First of all, a woman who wants a heatsink is a rare find indeed... second, perhaps TT should focus thier marketing towards the female population, advertise in Cosmo or Redbook :laugh:

If you guys would like I can run some test to give you a representation of performance on a live system, but then again I work here so im sure you would rather wait for an independent reviewer.

Let me just say this. If the frio cant handle a 125W 2600K, you either have the worst 2600K temperature wise, or you needed to RMA that defective cooler long ago!

I mean seriously you are telling me the frio leaves your 2600K over 75*C loaded?

To me it seems like you really just want to poop in the thread. I know damn well if I had a cooler rated for 200W+ and my 125W max CPU was saturating it, I would have been with support that day!

I have personally overclocked 3 different 2600K CPU's to 4.8-5GHz easily on the OCK and benched at no more than approximately 71-74C but i could be a lil off on temps (running on memory here)....

now remember this is benchmarking im not talking run every day like this.... scaling in real world programs doesnt really justify anything over 4.5GHz (more like 4GHz but im sure someone will find an example where a program will scale enough to show an advantage if I state 4GHz solid)

That was sort of my point. He would need to be running IBT/Prime95 or similar apps to even make that sort of claim. No gaming or multi-tasking he is doing is going to generate that heat all the time.

When I had my 965BE, I figured I simply had a 'hot' sample, so I left it at that. I only recently got my 2600K.
I ran IBT/Prime95, to verify this CPU's awesome OC capabilities, whilst remaining stable.
The reason I used those programs, was to see how close my temps were to the plethora of reviews out there, where both my 2600K & Tt Frio were used.
Mine fails.
It is only now that I realise my Frio must, obviously, be faulty.
It's not something I could've possibly known beforehand, especially as cooling anything has always been an issue (don't forget my location).

What bugs me is doing the obvious tests on the Frio (flatness of the surface, bad or cracked heatpipes, etc.), all seem to be fine, so I'm left wondering wtf it could be that makes my particular Frio so crappy :/

Ive tested 2600k's at over 4.5+GHz running Prime Small FFT and I dont think I broke 80.

honestly I dont remember offhand but I know just recently I had a i7 965 on a Frio OCK running Prime 95 Small FFT at somethink like 4GHz approximately and didnt break 80C at 1.31V

and thats a higher TDP chip at higher than stock voltage running Small FFT in a closed case as well :)

The Frio itself is an awesome cooler and so is the OCK they have out. I tell you, more manufactures need to go with the plastic fan shroud mounting. Simply the easiest implementation to anyone out there for hanging fan(s) on the cooler. Now, if they could take the mounting system from Prolimatech (and more manufactures do that as well) we will be in business.

The Frio itself is an awesome cooler and so is the OCK they have out. I tell you, more manufactures need to go with the plastic fan shroud mounting. Simply the easiest implementation to anyone out there for hanging fan(s) on the cooler. Now, if they could take the mounting system from Prolimatech (and more manufactures do that as well) we will be in business.
Thank you for the feedback I do agree the shroud mechanism on the OCK is by far one of the easiest and quickest for mounting dual fans.

However I do also see where it might not match some peoples personal styling.

also with a setup like that presently it is only usable with the provisioned fans.

I am working with some ideas to broaden fitment in future models.

one thing to note is the Frio Advance you see has a very easy to mount plastic shroud which the fan just clips on to, making choice in fans very easy as most fans will clip on without issue unless the lip of the shroud is super thick.
