They have produced some very interesting concepts in the past and it's always been good to see Thermaltake coming up with innovative designs to tackle the problem of heat, such as the SpinQ and the V1 AX. Although they may not have had the same success as other prolific manufacturers such as Noctua and Thermalright in recent times, Thermaltake hopes to change this with the Frio.
