I don't believe most reviews but when I see statements like below

Performance
Once we’d attached the Frio Advanced to our test system, we were pleasantly surprised by the results we saw. In our LGA1155 test system, the CPU levelled out to a delta T of 41˚C, which is towards the top end of the results we’ve seen here. In fact, the only air cooler that bettered the Frio Advanced was the marginally more expensive Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro.

Unfortunately, while the Dark Rock Pro remained almost whisper-quiet during our testing, the Frio Advanced's fans spun up to almost ridiculous levels. It was by far and away the loudest component in the case, and the only other coolers that could match its racket were the water-cooling systems at their highest fan speed settings. Our AMD testing revealed a similar story, with the cooler performing well (it recorded a delta T of 48˚C), but only by spinning up its fans to an uncomfortable level of noise.

Thermal performance with our LGA2011 test CPU at 100 per cent load was also respectable. The Frio Advanced managed a delta T of 53˚C, beating the Corsair H80 at its lowest speed setting and making the Frio Advanced one of the coolest conventional heatsinks we've tested. It made our overclocked and overvolted CPU a huge 9˚C cooler than the similarly priced Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro. However, this great cooling ability came at a price; the Frio Advanced is comically loud, and its fans quickly spin up to a highly intrusive whine.

So the real problem is the noise, thank you.

I ran the original Frio in my 932 with 2 fans on full blast (stock fans) and I really didnt think it was that loud (used on my 2500k) kept it really cool
