Thermaltake Readies the Frio Advanced High-End Cooler

Continuing with the tradition, so to speak, of supporting as many CPUs as possible, Thermaltake has created the Frio Advanced, a high-end cooler which, alas, was neither priced nor dated. 

Owners of most any contemporary, strong CPU might find use for the new cooler that Thermaltake created. 

The company actually issued a whole press release just to announce its impending arrival, even if it didn't give all the specifics. 

Indeed, though it is assumed to be soon, the launch date of the Thermaltake Frio Advanced is unknown for now. The same goes for the price. 

On the flip side, the company did pretty much describe all the assets of the newcomer in full, from the size and weight to the individual components. 

Five 6mm direct touch copper heatpipes draw the heat out of the CPU and lead it to a heatsink which gets help from a full pair of fans. 

Said spinners measure 130mm each and work at a speed of 800 to 2,000 RPM (rotations per minute). 

Of course, this also means that the noise generation is not always the same, as it actually ranges from a fairly inaudible 21 dBA to 44 dBA. 

Considering that gamers often have headsets on, even the maximum shouldn't be too much of a distraction. 

On that note, multimedia players will never really push the CPU much, so there won't be any need for high fan speeds and, thus, there is no danger of CPU fan noise affecting enjoyment of movies either. 

Chips with a TDP (thermal design power) of up to 240W can be kept at decent temperatures by this newcomer. 

Finally, the item measures 130.6 (L) X 122 (W) x 159.2 (H) mm (5.11 x 4.80 x 6.26 inches), weighs 954 grams and works on AMD AM2(+), AM3(+) and FMI CPUs, as well as LGA 755/1156/1155/1366/2011 chips from Intel.
