We first saw this cooler on display at CES 2011 in the suite that Thermaltake was set up in. The Frio OCK is the refreshed version of Thermaltake's top Frio cooler. With OCK standing for “Over Clocker King,” it wasn’t hard to determine the target market here. We are actually a little surprised to see it released as our rep said it might not make it to market due to a cost prohibitive construction.

The Frio OCK states that it supports processors up to 240 watts which is a slight increase from the original Frio at 220 watts. The original Thermaltake Frio received our Gold Seal of Approval when we reviewed it around this time last year. We have also just finished reviewing the Thermaltake Jing which also received top honors.

Another difference between the Frio OCK and the original Frio is in the heatpipes. Now we have six 6mm heatpipes verses five 8mm heatpipes. Thermaltake reduced the diameter back down to 6mm in order to increase the number of heatpipes by one. I am curious as to whether that makes a significant difference or if it is more of a marketing technique.

Next let's take a look at the Frio OCK.
