Thermaltake Frio Advanced Heatsink Review @ Frostytech
Posted By: Dennis - Source: Email
Below is the quote that accompanied this review link. It describes the heatsink quite well but seems to be lacking the most important aspect of the cooler.
Thermaltake's Frio Advanced heatsink stands 161mm tall and weighs upwards of 954 grams, it is rated to heat loads of 230 Watts by the manufacturer. The heatsink ships with two 130mm PWM fans arranged in a push-pull configuration that rotate at 2000-800RPM. Behind each fan shroud is a 110mm tall aluminum fin tower connected by five U-shaped, 6mm diameter copper heatpipes which are exposed at the base. Thermaltake's Frio Advanced heatsink is compatible with Intel socket LGA2011/1366/1155/1156/775 and AMD socket AM2/AM3/FM1 CPUs.
I have seen this heatsink up close and feel the first paragraph in the review is a little more descriptive.
Thermaltake's Frio Advanced heatsink is basically a reboot of the Jing heatsink, but this time around the copper heatpipes are exposed at the base, none of the aluminum surfaces are nickel plated and the heatpipes not soldered to the cooling fins. We mention this seemingly minor point of construction, since the Frio Advanced's heatpipes are pressed into each aluminum fin with a new type of swage joint we haven't encountered before.
I'm hoping to have a have a massive Thermaltake round up in the next couple weeks, look for this guy to be in the bunch.
