The Packaging

The Frio OCK comes in the typical black box we are used to. This time the front has been embellished with a shot of what appears to be the earth, but judging by the colors, it could be anywhere in space. Either way, it makes for a very attractive back drop for the image of the Frio OCK. Other points of interest are the 240W capacity, the pair of 130mm fans, six 6mm heat pipes, and the 4in1 mounting kit.

With a red strip topping this side, the lower field of black holds the three major features that are explained on the back in English. Since Thermaltake is a global company, and being such, they also cover the features in twelve other languages.

On the back there are detailed features that cover the design and build, the cooling, and the hardware included next to a rendering of the cooler in action with arrows denoting air flow. The bottom eight little windows show views of the cooler from different angles including mounted to a board, the base, the wiring, and again the hardware.

The last panel is all black, with a compatibility chart and a specifications chart presented in white. Thermaltake provides plenty of information around the outside for you to decide if the Frio OCK is for you.

As you open the box, you will immediately be greeted by all of the paperwork for instructions and warranty information. Just under the papers you will find the Accessory Package that contains all of your hardware nestled into the top of the foam that surrounds the cooler.

The cooler is secured pretty well, centered in the middle of this foam. When the cooler was shipped to me, essentially it was bubble wrap taped to the box. Coming as far as it did, the box took some damage that we saw in the previous images. At this point the cooler appears to be in good shape. As I get images I will point out anything I do find.
