Thermaltake introduced the 230W Frio Advanced CPU cooler, the succesor of Frio and Frio OCK
Thermaltake claims that unlike the traditional welding between the heat-pipe with the heat-sink which may create extra welding points acting as heat collectors on the heat-sink, the Thermaltake Frio Advanced is using mechanical assembling on the heat-pipe with the heat-sink which provides a direct contact for flawless heat transmission from the CPU to the heat-sink.
The new heatsink is also featuring 5 x Ø6 mm heat-pipes with direct touch to the CPU surface and high density aluminum fins allow larger surface area for a better heat dissipation.
Moreover, Thermaltake has also incorporated the Pulse-width modulation (PWM) technique to control the speed of the Frio Advanced's dual 13cm fans from 800~2000 RPM in favor of a smarter fan noise management for overclockers.
The Thermaltake Frio Advanced CPU cooler has also preserved some of the functionalities from its predecessors of Frio and Frio OCK like the dual 13cm red bladed fans, tool-less fan installation, vibration-absorbent gaskets decrease noise during operation and all-in-one back-plate design that support the up to latest Intel LGA 2011 and all AMD platforms for overclockers.
