Thermaltake is rolling out its Frio Extreme CPU cooler that was announced earlier this year.

The dual-tower design with two 14 mm fans uses 0.4 mm aluminum fins, a VR/PWM fan controller, as well as six 6 mm heat pipes. The manufacturer says the Frio Extreme works for CPUs up to 250 watts of power.

The fan is covered by a 10-year warranty that includes the heat sink, fans and controller. The Frio Extreme is offered for Intel LGA 2011, 1366, 1155, 1156, and 775 as well as AMD FM1, AM3+, AM3, AM2+, and AM2.

The cooler is sold for MSRP $99.99.

    unless it cooling performance is extraordinary its ridiculously priced... seems to me this frio is more about looks than cooling. it looks pretty but seriously 100bux is a lot when other coolers are likely to cool just as well for a lot less money...
    so like i say unless it outperforms virtually everything else on the market i think thermaltake are over reaching with this 1.

    I bought a "thors hammer" many years back. It was around £40 ($70) and is the best cooler I've ever laid my hands on. It's currently cooling a 4.0GHz 6-core CPU to 27C. Max load in the summer is around 60C, max load in the winter is around 45C. I know coolers are getting bigger and more efficient, but they seem to be overtaking the CPU's need for such things. For a fraction of the price I paid, people could get coolers like the thors hammer or tru black and cool pretty much anything on the market today.

    This isn't really needed.

    THAT SAID...
    I kinda' want one ¬_¬)
