"During our tests we noticed that CPU die temperature was slow to change after the thermal test platform had been shut off, leading us to wonder if the malformed swage between some of the aluminum fins and heatpipes added significant thermal joint resistance by decreasing metal-to-metal contact surface area? While the Thermaltake Frio Advanced did perform generally good-to-average, it's loud at full fan speed and the gaps around some fin-to-heatpipe joints leave us... underwhelmed. The Frostytech reference charts are full of heatsinks which offer both lower temperatures and less noise output than the Thermaltake Frio Advanced, so take your pick from those and pass on the Frio Advanced."
"Billed as the ultimate overclocking CPU cooler, the Frio Advanced certainly has a lot to live up to."
"The Thermaltake Frio Advanced is a nice addition to the Frio line of CPU coolers. It falls right in place with the other as it shared the same black and red theme. But that is all that it shares with the other models. The Advance is size isn’t bigger than the previous unit so this isn’t how it manage to outperform them. It was the change in structure build and some pretty high spinning fans."
"With a current suggested retail price tag set at around USD70 inside the USA and 60Euros inside the EU the latest Frio Advanced by Thermaltake really comes cheap compared to other similar performance units. Of course as mentioned this is not a unit ment for people who cherish silence and thus it's not recommended for them. You could of course run the fans at lower speeds (there are quite a few ways to do that) but you would get less performance so it really makes little sense to go the extra length for something like that. However for enthusiasts and overclockers the Frio Advanced is certainly one appealing solution at that price range largely thanks to its performance, size and compatibility and that's why we recommend it to everyone who is not annoyed by noise (mGPU owners for example)."
