Unboxing - First Look



The Thermaltake Frio OCK comes in a very stylish box featuring the TT logo, cooler, and some product highlights. The back goes into more of the features and some additional images. Opening the box up we see that the cooler is nestled tightly inside of foam. Sitting on top was the accessory package and installation instructions for both AMD and Intel socket types. The accessory package was extremely well organized and easy to work with. Everything was in its own spot as opposed to rattling around a little box. Thermal compound is also included.



Removing the foam and setting the cooler by itself – it sure is big. There are larger coolers, but the big square gives an impression of size. Covering the heatsink itself is a single piece shroud that has two fans. On the top we see a clear blue piece with the Thermaltake logo and red highlights. The fans have blue fins and are wired into a single 3-pin connector with a single speed controller. To remove the fan shroud, simply pull out slightly on the sides and slide the entire unit off.



To just briefly touch on the top left picture, as I mentioned the fan controller, the wire is probably long enough to pass through a top mounted water-cooling hole in a case. For testing, I just turned it to high and left it inside of the case.

With the covering off we can see that the six 6mm heatpipes rise from the base and pass through two towers. The fins widen slightly from the center. Flipping the cooler over we get a better look at the six heatpipes and the base. The base has a medium finish which is shown by the black screw pictured above.

Next we will install the Frio OCK.
