Thermaltake Frio or Cooler Master Hyper 212+ - Page 2

post #11 of 20
If you are concerned about price. You can get the 212+ for pretty cheap $20-30 and slap on another fan and it does pretty good.

I had my X6 at 3.75 Ghz, peaked at 46C with the fans on silent. Really, sticking two 38mm thick fans on and cranking them up dropped 4C on the temps. I think they're both pretty equal given price to performance, with the ability to change fans.

Weight may also be a factor. Heavier is not always better for moving a system.

EDIT: I'd like to point out I was talking about the Hyper212+, not the Frio. I'm still a fan (no pun intended) of putting a second fan on the hyper and calling it a day.

Frio is much better cooler than hyper 212 plus. Go research some reviews on it like frostytech.com Also, T-Frio comes with 2 fans which are very good and pushes 101.6CFM on full speed (2500rpm) but it's loud as hell. I change my hyper 212 plus for the t-frio and my temps dropped by good 3-4degress. just my 2 cents
post #16 of 20
Which one weighs more? Or are they about the same?
post #17 of 20
The Frio weighs 1042g and the Hyper 212+ weighs 626g.

Pertaining to your question about having 2 fans: Yes, you need to have identical fans. If one fan is stronger than the other, it will burn out the weaker fan over time.

I currently have the Hyper 212+ and have decided that it needs an upgrade.

What the current best 1366 cooler?

I was looking at the Frio. Any other suggestions? Noctua? Prolimatech?

For less than half the cost it keeps pace with coolers well out of it's price range, also, with the money you save, you can get some really decent fans for it
Yep, yep and yep.
