Being another Thermaltake cooler, also the packaging is very similar to what we saw on the Jing. It's a large cardboard box with foam inside and photo and specifications printed on the outside. The box was pretty bruised and the bundle had mysteriously disappeared, but the cooler itself was in perfect condition.

The FrioOCK is an upgraded version of the already high performance Frio cooler, and the current flag ship in the Thermaltake's range of air coolers. And it shows. The FrioOCK is even larger than the Jing, and the specifications of the fans are plain scary. The fans are rated at 14,4 W and 121 CFM, which also shows on the 48 dBA noise reading. These numbers alone are enough to set the expectations really high.

Our test sample was pretty badly bruised during the shipping, and also the mounting hardware had gone missing, but luckily the FrioOCK uses the same mounting as the Jing, so we were able to use the Jing-kit to also test the Frio.
