We return Thermaltake's Frio lineup of CPU coolers with the Frio Extreme, which naturally sits on the extreme portion of the cooling performance scale. That's the idea at least: find out how extreme this not-so-little $99 cooler can be in our review.

where did 7.2 watts come from? if its rated for 12 volts and 0.5 amps, it should be 6 watts. or 3 if you use the started voltage (im guessing that is the voltage once the fan is at a certain RPM?)

Sometimes I have to wonder how there is so big a difference between some of the high end coolers these days since in terms of fin and fan layout, they are all pretty much the same: Fan||||||Fan|||||

it all comes down to how much surface area is available to dissipate heat from, but even that follows a law of diminishing returns.

best thing to do is to stick some fans on passive heatsinks.
