Thermaltake are back with their brand new CPU cooler; the Frio Extreme Silent 14 Dual. In the past they have released some excellent products geared towards gamers and overclocking enthusiasts, boasting good value, low temperatures and low acoustics. A near silent PC is always hard to put together and normally you have to sacrifice some of the cooling power to get the PC as quiet as you would like. This cooler is set to try and tackle both problems head on, focusing on silence whilst keeping the performance that we all desire.
I’ve got high hopes for this cooler and with stiff competition coming from the likes of be quiet! and the AIOs that are on the market it will certainly be interesting to see how this stacks up against the competition.
As you can see from the specification below, the cooler supports all major socket types for both Intel and AMD. It comes equipped with two 140mm PWM fans and 0.4mm aluminium fin construction.
The front of the box features an image of the dual 14 CPU cooler and boasts support of up to 240w and low noise.
Around the back is a quick run-down on some of the major features, but we’ll be taking a closer look at those in a moment.
In the box you’ll find a universal backplate with thick foam padding, four fan clips, thermal grease, Intel and AMD mounting brackets, two low noise cables and an assortment of screws and bolts,
