THERMALTAKE FRIO OCK INTRODUCTION
The PC aftermarket is so dynamic that it’s often hard to keep up with all the new products. This is especially true with coolers in general and CPU coolers in particular. The “King-of-the-Hill” may be relegated to “Second-Best” in a matter of weeks as manufacturers bring new products to market. While the difference in performance may be only a degree or two, enthusiasts have proven willing to pay the premium for this increased performance. Not surprisingly, manufacturers have proven willing to bring cooling solutions to this market at an ever increasing rate. Thermaltake is one of these suppliers, with a long and storied history in the PC aftermarket with, among other products, high performance CPU coolers. This time, we’ll be looking at their new Frio OCK heatpipe cooler. This is not just a rehash of their earlier Frio cooler, but has some significant differences. We didn’t get an opportunity to evaluate the original, but it garnered good reviews and positive consumer reaction. I’ll be interested to see what the OCK brings to the table, particularly since Thermaltake purports the OCK to mean Over Clocker King. That’s quite a claim; follow along as we see if this cooler can live up to its name.
