Thermaltake’s Frio looks similar to many other coolers currently on the market in some ways and differs in others.  Since it uses a pair of 120mm fans, it is a large squarish cooler as most high end coolers are currently, but they’ve opted for a little decoration on the outside as opposed to pure metal and they did not use direct touch heatpipes but went for the copper contact plate.  The mounting mechanism is also a little different from the norm but is still highly compatible and seems to prevent the weight of the cooler from crushing your cores.  OCIA took it for a spin and were blown away by the results, which you can find here.

“The cooler we have for review today, the Thermaltake Frio, has been designed to handle up to 220w of thermal design power and is fully compatible with six core processors. With five large 8mm heatpipes set into a wide copper base, and supporting all of the major socket types, both Intel 775/1156/1366 and AMD AM2/+/3, the Frio is ready for maximum performance. A tower style cooler with dual 120mm fans setup in a push/pull configuration, mounted to 48 0.5mm thick aluminum fins and a bolt-through socket mounting show that the Frio means business. At over 1,000 grams, this is certainly no light-weight contender.”
