Thermaltake is a leading manufacturer in a variety of computer components, including cooling. It launched its Frio CPU cooler last year and it was quite the success since it delivered exceptional cooling performance. Now, Thermaltake is launching an updated version in the form the Frio OCK CPU cooler. The Frio OCK has six 6mm heatpipes that transport the heat into two separate towers. The move to a dual-tower design allows for an increased airflow and ventilation by the two included fans, though I will wait for a review to see if it is better than the original. The Frio OCK can handle up to 240W so any processor should be nice and cool under it. There are two 130mm high-pressure fans working in a push-pull configuration on the Frio OCK. Each fan runs at 1200RPM but can ramp it up to 2100RPM for improved cooling during a high overclock or extreme load. As for the design, Thermaltake based it off the bunkers from StarCraft II so that you could have a little piece of the popular RTS game in your case of choice.

The Thermaltake Frio OCK CPU cooler will work with all current Intel and AMD sockets, though no mention was made of a price or launch date.
