Thermaltake Frio Extreme CPU Cooler Now Available

The dual-tower design with two 14 mm fans uses 0.4 mm aluminum fins, a VR/PWM fan controller, as well as six 6 mm heat pipes. The manufacturer says the Frio Extreme works for CPUs up to 250 watts of power.

    ViridiancrystalJust got a regular frio and I have to say, there is absolutely no need for better cooling (my FX-8120 idles around 10-12C, in a 20C room). If there is, best place to go is water. Besides, one of my ram slots is covered, the thing is HUMONGOUS!

    Yeah, there's something wrong with your sensors. Air cooling can't get your CPU temperature below ambient temperature. How does that even make sense?

    Well, it certainly doesn't look light-weight. I like my motherboard in one piece. ...think I'll stick with my Corsair H100. It cools good enough.
