Excerpt: 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 frustrations inherent in two-fan (or one-fan) heatsinks.
Pros: Straightforward install; fan mount ridiculously easy to use.
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. The Thermaltake Frio OCK, a strange name for a product, literally means Cold Over-clocker King (sic). So what does an undead lord have to do with CPU cooling? Absolutely nothing; however, I couldn't help but notice the similarities between the two of them.
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 get the best performance/silence ratio, unless however you don’t really care about the sound then blast the fans all the way.
Summary: Ottimo il lavoro svolto da Thermaltake con questo nuovo dissipatore sotto il profilo delle finiture.
Dobbiamo riconoscere che difficilmente ci siamo imbattuti in prodotti con questo livello qualitativo; ci riferiamo in special modo alla lavorazione del corpo radiante, veramente sorprendente la totale assenza della benchè minima "sbavatura" nelle saldature delle heat pipes.
