Pros: Comes with 8x heatpipes, Impressive cooling results, custom adjustable fans via VRM fan knobs
Cons: Might not fit all ram (e.g tall such as Corsair Vengeance, Dominator) therefore low profile ram might be needed.
The fans are pretty impressive, you can set them e.g to low speed such as 1000 RPM. Max speed is 2500 RPM.
This ran runs pretty quiet at low RPM's such as 1000. Inside the Thermaltake Frio product packaging, You get CPU Cooler mounts for AMD (AM 1,2,3+) and Intel (LGA 1156/1155/1150, 2011 and 775). It also comes with thermal paste. You get 2x fans for the CPU Cooler heatsink. It has a nice stylish design, attractive cover that is on the top of the heatsink. Has 8 heatsink pipes (4 on each side of heatsink e.g left and right)
It has a direct copper / silver aluminium plate finish on the heatsink's thermal surface 100% smooth.
I would rate this 5 stars, if the wires didn't break for the VRM fan controller knobs. I had to resolder the wire together to adjust the fan speeds again. With the wires broken it would only run at 1500 RPM max, it would need to be controlled by the BIOS fan speed settings.
Warning: To not wiggle the VRM fan controller knob/wire too much, because the wires from the pwm fan connector are connected to the VRM fan controller knobs as well with shrinker's, yeah... They didn't even solder the VRM fan knob wires together, instead they used shrinker s to somewhat stop the wires from not contacting...
