    Woah. So nearly ordered a Frio a couple nights ago.

    Need to see temp comparison before deciding - but hopefully it'll push the old Frio's price down too!

    Does anyone else see the irony in a CPU cooler that looks like it's called fry?

    As in "Fry yo CPU"? :eyebrow:

    I would have to say that anything that came from the TRON design team would look a hell of a lot better than this. What is with all the dodgy plastic? It's a no go for me.

    I pronounce it "Free-Oh" rather than "Fry-Oh".

    Looks nice :)

    Question for me is will it offer clearance of all ram slots on a asus p8p67 pro? Currently the frio covers the nearest ram slot (using corsair vengeance). With two sticks of ram this is no problem, since on the asus board (according to the manual) you need to populate the 2nd and 4th closest slots first. However, it would be nice to have the option of using all slots.

    Same on my Gigabyte P55A-UD3, Frio covers the first RAM slot and is possibly pushing a DIMM in the second slot back.

    I run mine with only a single fan. Even though my RAM is low profile... I find it's cooling capacity isn't overly affected by more than 2ish C under load. I am however currently running a stock 950 so it may be a bigger issue with a bit of tuning to handle.

    I'm hoping they made the fan speed cables a bit longer with this generation as thats the only thing I find annoying about the Frio installed on my Sabertooth. Looking forward to seeing whats what though :)

    Me too, and I'm pretty sure that's how it's meant to sound given that "Frio" is Spanish for "Cold".

    Aesthetically is looks much better than the Frio which i'm on the cusp of ordering, i really want this to be good so i can get one of these instead :). Need temp figures and to know whether the fans are interchangeable

    The design of this is what is giving pc nerds a bad name. Its fugly and plastic like somthing a chav would put in his car.
