Thermaltake FRIO OCK and AMD RYZEN mounting support

3 posts in this topic

Hello,

 

So, back when I was upgrading my rig in 2012 I didn't know much about PC's and I made the mistake to buy my CPU Cooler from a Chinese brand, that is to say THERMALTAKE, instead of buying from Cooler Master, Corsair, etc basically from anyone else except the Chinese.

 

Like you have heard, in the last few days the world of Personal Computing has been taken by storm by AMD RYZEN.

 

We have seen so far several companies stepping in and offering FREE AMD RYZEN mounting kits for their CPU coolers.

 

That includes Cooler Master, who released a FREE AM4 upgrade kit for their widely popular CPU cooler Hyper 212 Evo:

Hyper 212 Evo is probably the most popular CPU Cooler in the world right now.

 

So, is Thermaltake planning to release AM4 kits like Cooler Master, or am I right in assuming that only fools buy Chinese CPU Coolers?

 

P.S.:

I need to know where THERMALTAKE stands on this issue, so that I can decide for myself whether my next CPU Cooler is going to be a Thermaltake unit or I will just go Coler Master like pretty much everyone and their sister have.

 

My FRIO OCK is 5 years old already, so if you don't offer an upgrade for socket AM4 you are forcing me to retire it, and ofc I will never buy from you again seeing as how pretty much everyone else who owns 10 year old Hyper 212's from Cooler Master is good to go.
