Ladies and gentlemen, overclockers and enthusiasts, meet the Frio Advanced, a big and bulky cooler that incorporates some of the most up-to-date CPU cooler technologies while still preserving the greatness of its predecessors, according to Thermaltake. Among the improvements to the Frio Advanced are extra welding points acting as headt collectors on the heatsink.
This is another cooler utilizing direct-contact heatpipes intended to pull heat up and away from the processor. There are a total of five heatpipes, each one measuring 0.6mm thick. Heat from the CPU is distributed to high-density aluminum fins sandwiched between a pair of red-bladed 130mm PWM fans.
To make installation easier, the fans snap into place without any tools, so you can remove them and install the heatsink in your system with minimal fuss. The Frio Advanced supports all modern sockets, including Intel LGA 2011, 1366, 1156, and 775; and AMD FM1, AM3+, AM3, AM2+, and AM2.
