Technically speaking, the Coolermaster Ergostand III supports laptops with footprints up to 15 Noctua's low profile NH-L9x65 heatsink stands just 64mm tall and has a very compact footprint of only 95x95mm. The NH-L9x65 is designed to cool some fairly intensive Intel sockets, along with the full spectrum of AMD processors and APUs. Compact CPU coolers can be a little tricky to install, but Noctua long ago laid down the framework of an excellent motherboard mounting system,, so the NH-L9x65 is a breeze to work with. 

The Noctua NH-D9DXi4-3U is a mid-sized heatsink designed specifically for lower noise cooling of Intel Xeon processors in 3U height computer/server chassis. It's compact stature makes it ideal for rack mounted computers in a recording studio, video editing suite, operations control center... The 920gram Scythe Fuma heatsink is constructed around six 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and a pair of aluminum fin stacks that measure 104x130x37mm (HxWxD) in size. The heatpipes are liberally soldered to a chunky nickel plated copper base plate, this plate helps to more evenly conduct heat away from hot-spot ridden multi-core CPUs. While Scythe doesn't overtly market its heatsinks as

Intel's Core i7-8700K proved an exceptionally well-rounded chip in our testing, but the company's choice of thermal interface material has left many wondering whether the Coffee Lake flagship will prove a challenge to keep cool. We establish a handy baseline for what might make a chip "difficult" to cool and see whether the Core i7-8700K falls on the wrong side of the line.

Noctua today introduced the long-awaited chromax editions of its most renowned 120mm and 140mm fan models as well as chromax line cables and heatsink covers for its award-winning NH-U12S and NH-D15 series CPU coolers. All the new chromax line products allow users to colour-customise their Noctua cooling systems in order to match popular build colour schemes.

www.frostytech.com

Noctua is an engineering-driven company: we pride ourselves on relentlessly tuning our products for maximum performance and quality rather than putting form before function, but of course we understand that many customers put an emphasis on build aesthetics these days,” explains Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO). “With the new chromax line fans, cables and heatsink covers, we now offer a range of products that’s ideal for those who care about looks just as much as about quality and performance.

www.frostytech.com

Having received more than 100 awards and recommendations from international hardware websites and magazines, the NF-A15, NF-A14, NF-F12 and NF-S12A are among Noctua’s most renowned 140mm and 120mm fans. The new chromax.black.swap edition combines their signature quiet cooling performance with an attractive all-black design and a bundle of swappable red, white, blue, green, yellow and black anti-vibration pads that allow the colour-customisation of the fans to match individual build colour schemes.

www.frostytech.com

Topped off with Noctua’s trusted premium-grade SSO2 bearing, more than 150,000 hours MTTF and a 6-year manufacturer’s warranty, the new chromax.black.swap fans are the perfect choice for all users who value individual, focused build aesthetics just as much as class-leading quality and performance.

www.frostytech.com

Noctua’s new chromax line NA-SEC1 extension cable and NA-SYC1 y-cable sets enable users to take one step further in colour-customising their fans: available with red, blue, green, yellow, black and white sleeving, the cables allow a PC build to be colour-coordinated down to the smallest detail and are an ideal match for the new chromax.black.swap edition fans. While the NA-EC1 30cm extension cables provide extra reach in larger enclosures, the NA-YC1 y-cables make it possible to run two 4-pin PWM fans on a single fan header and to let the motherboard control the speed of both fans simultaneously.

www.frostytech.com

The new NA-HC heatsink covers are add-on accessories for Noctua’s award-winning NH-U12S and NH-D15(S) series CPU coolers. Made from high-quality, powder-coated aluminium and available in black (chromax.black), white (chromax.white) and black with swappable inlays in black, white, red, blue, green and yellow (chromax.black.swap), they allow users to colour-customise their coolers in order to coordinate them with popular build colour schemes such as all-black, black and white or black and red. Thanks to the easy, straightforward installation, changing the looks of a Noctua cooler only takes a few minutes and doesn’t even require taking it off the CPU.

www.frostytech.com

Combined with the new chromax.black.swap edition fans, the NA-HC covers give users endless possibilities to design their very own, individual Noctua coolers that look just as great as they cool!

In this article for Benchmark Reviews, we have Reeven’s Naia 240 AIO Liquid Cooler up for review (model RW-2401). Reeven manufactures a variety of air coolers, fans, cases, and a few other things, but this is their first foray into the all-in-one liquid cooler segment. From the looks of things, Reeven is off to a great start with this AIO unit.

Noctua today presented two updates to its range of quiet low-profile CPU coolers. Successors to the award-winning NH-L9a and NH-L12, the new NH-L9a-AM4 and NH-L12S models now support the AM4 socket of AMD’s Ryzen processors. Whereas the NH-L9a-AM4 stands a mere 37mm tall, which makes it ideal for use in compact HTPCs or Small Form Factor cases that offer minimum clearance for CPU coolers, the slightly bigger NH-L12S comes equipped with the new NF-A12x15 PWM fan and combines excellent compatibility, surprising efficiency and remarkable flexibility.

www.frostytech.com

“AMD has made a big impact on the market with its Ryzen architecture and the platform will become even more interesting for compact HTPC builds when the first Ryzen-based APUs are introduced next year,” says Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO). “We’re thus updating two of our award-winning low-profile models to support Ryzen’s AM4 socket.”

The new NH-L9a-AM4 is an AM4-specific revision of Noctua’s award-winning NH-L9a low-profile CPU cooler. At a height of only 37mm, the NH-L9a is ideal for extremely slim cases and, due to its small footprint, it provides 100% RAM and PCIe compatibility as well as easy access to near-socket connectors, even on tightly packed mini-ITX motherboards. The custom-designed SecuFirm2™ mounting system for the AM4 socket makes installation child’s play and, thanks to the highly optimised NF-A9x14 92mm fan that supports fully automatic speed control via PWM, the NH-L9a-AM4 runs remarkably quietly.

The new S-version of the renowned NH-L12 not only adds AM4 support but also gives more flexibility and improved performance in low-profile mode. Thanks to the new NF-A12x15 PWM slim 120mm fan, the NH-L12S provides even better cooling than the previous model with its 92mm fan. At the same time, the NH-L12S is highly versatile: with the fan installed on top of the fins, the cooler is compatible with RAM modules of up to 45mm in height. With the fan installed underneath the fins, the total height of the cooler is only 70mm, making it suitable for use in many compact cases. Topped off with a SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system for Intel LGA115x (LGA1150, LGA1151, LGA1155, LGA1156), LGA20xx (LGA2066, LGA2011-0, LGA2011-3) and AMD (AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, AM4, FM1, FM2, FM2+), the NH-L12S is ideal for both Intel and AMD-based HTPC or SFF builds.

Prices and availability Both models are currently shipping and will be available shortly. The suggested retail prices are EUR 39.90 / USD 39.90 for the NH-L9a-AM4 and EUR 49.90 / USD 49.90 for the NH-L12S.

While EVGA may be best known for its graphics cards, motherboards and power supplies, the company has recently ventured into the magical world of liquid coolers. Using 5th generation Asetek hardware, the imaginatively named CLC 240 should provide good cooling, an easy installation process and – of course – RGB lighting. But how does it fare against the competition? Let’s find out.

This 120mm cooler is bundled with not one, but two of the company's latest BioniX fans. These are PWM blowers with rotation speeds between 200 and 1800 RPM. Colour choices for this specific model are black with either red, yellow, green or white accents. We got yellow but you can't win 'em all - this element is subjective, of course. We feel the black heatsink itself however is a nice design choice. Arctic don't appear to publicise the reasons behind the eSports moniker, but based on the mid-range pricing and available colour schemes it's presumably aimed at these such users.

“I found out that an overclock over 5.0GHz on all cores was not going to happen, but between 4800 and 4900MHz was the sweet spot for this Core i7 8700K. Well, after setting the load line calibration to Mode 1 and applying a voltage of 1.25v in the Click BIOS. I finally settled at 4862MHz by setting the bclock multiplier to 48 and bumping the bclock up to 101.3MHz. Not stellar when you look at the Turbo Boost clock speeds of 4.7GHz on a single or pair of cores that are lightly loaded. However, this clock speed proved stable, but did get a bit warm even with a full-on liquid cooling system. Temperatures in the 90 °C range were not uncommon in some of the more demanding loads. A bit more tuning time on the voltage would surely reduce the thermals.”

If you are looking at building an AMD TR4/SP3 platform for either a Ryzen Threadripper or Epyc processor you’ll likely find yourself looking for a CPU cooler. The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X 16-core processor has a default TDP of 180 Watts and a maximum temperature of 68C for proper precision boost operation and 95C before thermal shutdown. One wouldn’t expect there to be many coolers that can hand that, but there are now over 20 all-in-one water cooling solutions and at least five air cooler options that are able to handle a Ryzen Threadripper processor at stock clock speeds. Read on to see how the Noctua NH-U9 TR4-SP3, Noctua NH-U12S TR4-SP3 and Noctua NH-U14S TR4-SP3 do on a Threadripper 1950X CPU as we compare them to a liquid cooler!

Cooler Master Cosmos has an epic legacy that stretches back 25 years so it pleases us hugely to see the Cosmos C700P uses aluminium rails top and bottom that instantly remind us of the original design classic.

www.frostytech.com

Naturally enough Cooler Master has brought the design screeching up to date with a tempered glass panel and a bunch of RGB lighting features. No high end case is complete without glass and RGB in 2017 however that is only the beginning of Cooler Master’s ambitions. There are two main thoughts behind the design of the Cosmos C700P that cause a certain amount of conflict. On the one hand it has interior panels that cover the drives and cables to keep the build immaculate and to focus your eyes on the motherboard, CPU, RAM and graphics. Balanced against that you can flip the interior over to enhance the cooling so your motherboard is mounted on the left side of the case and the GPU ends up above the CPU.
