Summary: It has been quite some time since I took a look at the original Frio cooler from Thermaltake and during that time the Frio has remained a very popular pick among people looking to upgrade their CPU coolers.
Pros: Good Performance, Can handle up to 240 Watts of Heat, Easy Installation, High Quality Construction
Excerpt: The new cooler is called the FrioOCK. The new FrioOCK is not considered to be the big brother of the Frio is a separate identity as well as the FrioOCK. The OCK or o ver c lock k ing is quite a bit larger has six 6mm diameter heat pipes and uses two very large 130mm in a push-pull configuration to...
Conclusion: 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.
Pros: Excellent cooling performance for an air cooler, Dual fans on a single plug, with controller, Stylish shroud, with good performance, Socket LGA2011 Compatible
Cons: At full speed, fans are very loud., Mounting may require removal of motherboard to install, Fans are not vibration-dampened
Summary: The Frio OCK CPU cooler is truly a great performing cooler; even with the fans on low it keeps your CPU nice and cool. If you’re looking for good looks and good performance, look no further than the Frio OCK from Thermaltake.
Pros: +Very good cooling ability
Cons: -Very loud when fans on high, -Might not fit with large style ram
Conclusion: The Frio OCK CPU cooler is truly a great performing cooler; even with the fans on low it keeps your CPU nice and cool. If you’re looking for good looks and good performance, look no further than the Frio OCK from Thermaltake.
Conclusion: 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.
Conclusion: 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 other tests since many factors will have changed.
Pros: Good cooling performance, Excellent construction quality, Easily-removed fans and shroud make mounting simple, Twin fan cables spliced together requiring only a single fan header
Cons: Plastic backplate and mount standoffs, Manual fan speed control requires opening your case to access, Some cheaper coolers offer better performance and features
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.
Summary: 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.
