Thermaltake Frio CPU Cooler Final Thoughts:

After getting the chance to test the Thermaltake Frio CPU cooler I must say I'm overall pretty happy with it. This cooler is a heavy cooler, weighing in at over 1kg, however the performance it provides will make you quickly forget about its weight.

The MSRP of $59.99 USD makes the Frio a great choice when you compare it to some of the other coolers of its size and performance.

 

Installation is a breeze with the Frio, and if you follow the instructions you should have no problem getting this cooler installed and running in under 15 minutes.

The biggest drawback of this cooler is the noise of the fans when running at full speed (2500 RPM). Chances are good you won't be leaving the fans at high speed on a daily basis, but you will be happy to have the ability to crank them up for a little extra performance when you are trying to pull off that big overclock.

At the end of the day it's pretty easy to like the Thermaltake Frio CPU Cooler. Thanks to fantastic performance, excellent CPU support, and high quality construction the Frio is a great choice for your next CPU cooler and has easily earned our "Editor's Choice - Gold" award. If you have the room in your case for a larger CPU cooler and want a cooler that can handle overclocking like a champ, the Thermaltake Frio might just be the cooler for you.
