Thermaltake Frio Overclocking-Ready Intel Core i7 (6-core ready) & i5 Compatible Five 8mm Heatpipes Dual 120mm Fans Intel & AMD Universal CPU Cooler CLP0564 - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Cpu is pretty cool, I had a laptop before this and this is my first build so I don't really have anything of my own to compare it to.
-I have an I7 3770k (Which is known for heating problems, about 10 degrees more) I'm getting about 35C idle, and mid to high 40's maybe 50 while playing WoW, Minecraft, or using Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, etc.
-Max is about 80-90C with Prime95.

Cons: -It's massive. I have the NZXT Phantom case which is big and I'm not sure if I'll be able to add a side fan due to this being mere millimeters away.

Other Thoughts: -It took me and a friend to get it installed. It was somewhat confusing at first but we finally got it. :)

This was my first build, so far everything is working well. :)
