Thermaltake Frio OCK CPU Heatsink Review  - FrostyTech.com Thermaltake Frio OCK CPU Heatsink Review
Thu Sep 01, 2011 | 6:38P| PermaLink
The Lich King was the master and lord of the Scourge, and he ruled over them telepathically from the Frozen Throne on top of Icecrown. Well, I guess until I killed him about a year ago, but that is beside the point. The Thermaltake Frio OCK, a strange name for a product, literally means Cold Over-clocker King (sic). So what does an undead lord have to do with CPU cooling? Absolutely nothing; however, I couldn't help but notice the similarities between the two of them. Anyone who has played Warcraft 3 or World of Warcraft would certainly know what gave me the idea of putting them together. The real question is whether or not the Lich King can keep my Core i7-2600K pleasantly chilled? With Thermaltake boasting a title of king, it leaves for some very high expectations. As I'm sure many of the readers know, practical overclocking is not just about speed. It is a balance between performance, heat dissipation, stability, and to some extent, sound. This means for an air cooler to be considered king, it would need to do exceptionally well in at least three of categories listed. Obviously, the Noctua NH-D14 CPU cooler, reviewed by my colleague Jonathan back in January 2010, comes to mind as the challenger to the Thermaltake Frio OCK. As it turns out, in Jonathan's other review, the "regular" Frio was only a few degrees warmer than the NH-D14. I'm curious to see if the "OCK version" can prove to the NH-D14 who is really the master of the undead when it comes to cooling, so read on to find out!
