The Frio OCK provided some great cooling, I was thoroughly impressed. Installation was relatively easy and within a matter of minutes I had it up and running. Most of the time I might suggest having the fan setting turned down a bit if you don’t want to hear a fan all the time. On high you can still get used to it as it is not screaming loud but its more noticeable than say a regular OEM cooler. Now when you look at the results of the testing you can see gamers get good cooling setups. On load I dropped my temperature by 22 degrees! Very noteworthy indeed. The idle wasn’t too much of a difference but a lower temperature nonetheless.

So would I recommend it? Yep, its a great CPU for a fair price, you get exactly what you need out of it.

  • slightly noisy on highest setting
