About two years ago Thermaltake Technology Co., Ltd. released a rather successful cooler called Frio. Although not as popular as the Big Typhoon, the first Frio could offer high performance (but at a rather high level of noise, too). It was soon followed by the more advanced FrioOCK targeted at overclockers and recently the company has also unveiled its Extreme version.
Alongside it, the Advanced version was released, featuring the lowest price tag in the whole Frio family. Indeed, the Frio Advanced has a very simple heatsink with direct-tough technology and lacks any special design solutions. On the other hand, it is equipped with two fans and comes with fasteners for all modern PC platforms. It looks attractive, too. Are you interested to learn how efficient and noisy it is?
Packaging and Accessories
The cooler comes in Thermaltake’s conventional packaging with a picture of the product on the front and detailed specifications on one side of the cardboard box.
Inside it, there is a polyethylene-foam tray in which the cooler is securely fixed. Above it you can find a smaller box with accessories that include everything you need to install the Frio Advanced onto any modern PC platform.
Thermaltake’s thermal grease and detailed installation instructions are also included into the box. The recommended price of the Frio Advanced is $58.99. It is manufactured in China and comes with a 3-year warranty.
