We’re benchmarking and reviewing the Thermalright 12th Gen CPU Contact Frame, which competes with Thermal Grizzly’s $35 contact frame that we recently reviewed. Our viewers highly requested the Thermalright frame for review, so in this testing, we’re evaluating the pressure performance and distribution of the mount, the thermals, and the build quality.

Watch our first contact frame review where we detailed the problem (and why these exist) here:
