Calling All Thermaltake Frio Owners.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have a Thermaltake Frio,however the build i'm currently on is hopefully going to be as quiet as possible without sacrificing overclock potential.I was wondering if you guys could let me know just how load it is in your rigs,also has anyone changed the fans at all?Iwas thinking of swapping them out for Akasa Apaches,but these are only half the static pressure and cfm of the supplied fans apparently.but is it a misprint when they say that the stock fans have over 4.** static pressure,only this is Delta fan kinda stuff.

Any advice greatly appreciated,if anyone could let me know if they've modded their Frio and the results that would be very usefull indeed.

Thanks people.

The Frio fans are accurate.

Changing the fans to something slower will lower performance, but there are plenty of options available.

DeepCool UF120's are quiet, but perform well. Same with Zalman ZM-F3-FDB, ZM-SF3, Scythe S-Flex, Thermalright FDB-12, & a plethora of other fans.

If you turn them at half speed or lower, they aren't loud at all. Turn them to full speed and it sounds like the rig is gonna launch itself into orbit biggrin.gif

Just swap them with some Gentle Typhoons, they have great static pressure and are silent killers. Best of the best for heatsinks...

I have the Frio, never used the fans that came with it, I'm using 2 Xilence XPF120.2CF fans, they are the same as the deepcool fans only red and @ 1500 rpm's the cooling is great and dead silent.

They are not really 16dB(A)

They are more around 23dB(A) if my memory serves me well.
