Thermaltake give Frio CPU coolers the ‘Snow’ treatment at CES
Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
Thermaltake has been giving its Frio CPU coolers the snow edition treatment for their showcasing at CES 2012. After the success of the Level 10 GT Snow Edition PC case it made sense for Thermaltake to do the same for its CPU coolers for those looking to coordinate a white case with white components. The two ‘lucky’ CPU coolers to get the treatment are the Thermaltake Frio and the Frio OCK.
The Frio Snow Edition
Uses the same exact design as the original version, but replaces the black+red plastic parts of it with white+blue, including a white colored fan impeller. It is a typical aluminum fin tower-type heatsink with two pre-fitted 120 mm fans in push-pull configuration. It measures 139 x 98 x 165 mm (LxWxH), weighing a little over 1 kg. Another feature of this cooler is out-of-the-box support for socket LGA2011.
The Frio OCK Snow Edition
As a variant, its specifications are otherwise identical to the original, except that the black+red colored plastic parts (such as shrouds, fan frames, and impellers), are replaced with white+blue colored ones. The blue, of course, is an “icy” shade of it. The top shroud is black, to offer a nice contrast with the white+blue colored fan frame. Measuring 143 x 136.8 x 158.4 mm (LxWxH), the cooler weighs about 1.1 kg. It uses a slightly larger heatsink than the one found on the Frio, to which heat is conveyed by six 6 mm-thick heat pipes. The heatsink is ventilated by two 130 mm fans in “push-pull” configuration. The new variant also provides out-of-the-box support for LGA2011 socket.
