Performance CPU coolers have been saturating the market in bunches this year, and Thermaltake added the FrioOCK to the fray to compete against other high-end heatsinks geared toward overclockers and power PC users. We wasted no time installing the FrioOCK in our LGA 1155 teset bench to see how it stacks up against other extreme air-cooled CPU coolers!

The FrioOCK is a universal CPU cooler that supports a variety of socket types from Intel (LGA1366, LGA1155, LGA1156, and LGA775) and AMD (AM3, AM2+, AM2). This heatsink uses a dual-tower design with six copper heatpipes to dissipate heat from the processor. The unit also sports two 130mm fans in a push-pull configuration to wisk heat away from the CPU.

This heatsink can be purchased for $65.99 and includes helpful user installation manuals for Intel or AMD-based computers. This price point is more than ideal for users looking to upgrade from their stock heatsink and perform basic overclocking on their systems. I also like the size and style of the FrioOCK and it should match up well with custom PC gaming cases that want all their hardware to have an intense and intimidating look.



Ultimate Overclocking Thermal Structure Design, support up to 240W

  • Dual tower heat-sink with 0.4mm aluminum fins provide large surface for heat dissipation.
  • 6 x 6mm-U-shape copper heat pipes for accelerated heat conduction.
