Silverstone's Tundra TD02 CPU liquid cooler offers up some refreshing design elements for the computer enthusiast looking to assemble a system that stands out from the crowd. In place of the standard black heat exchanger we find something vaguely reminiscent of a Mac, or a Star Wars set... UPDATED! This is a review of the Silverstone Tundra TD03 self contained liquid cooling system. The Tundra TD03 consists of a waterblock with integrated copper base plate attached to a small 120mm heat exchanger via 310mm long white FEP tubing. Arctic's Liquid Freezer 120 ships fully assembled, plumbed and filled. The whole system weighs around 942grams and installs onto Intel socket LGA115x/2011(-3) processors and AMD. The Scythe Mugen 5 Rev B (SCMG-5100) heatsink is a lower-noise tower cooler standing 154mm tall and equipped with a single 120mm PWM fan. The Mugen 5 Rev B is constructed around six 6mm diameter nickel plated heatspipes which are swaged onto an array of raw aluminum cooling fins. The Gelid Tranquillo 4 is built around four 16mm diameter copper heatpipes, a stack of ~40 nickel plated aluminum fins and a very unremarkable 1600rpm, 
120mm PWM fan. The heatsink makes use of 'exposed heatpipe base' 
thermal design.

  ID-Cooling looks to dominate the entry level cooler market by giving users a traditional tower cooler with an emphasis on solid performance in the SE 224 XT Basic. Taking things a step further, they add LED lighting with the appropriately dubbed SE 224 XT ARGB. Both versions certainly gave the competition a pummeling.

  Perhaps the most requested CPU water block review in years, we finally take a look at Optimus Water Cooling's Foundation CPU block. With a near-rabid user base touting praises galore, we put it to the test to see if the hype and asking price is justified.

  Alongside the Optimus Foundation CPU block, we saw it fit to also cover the company's flagship Signature CPU block. In its second version, the Signature V2 for Intel CPU sockets features to good effect a thick unibody brass top and mounting bracket, as well as the cooling engine and other features of their Foundation block.

  The brand new Mugen 5 Black RGB CPU Cooler by Scythe may not share the same impressive looks and cooling efficiency as the Mugen 5 ARGB Plus but thanks to its very good price/performance ratio and the Kaze Flex 120 RGB PWM fan it’s still certainly worth checking out.

  Alphacool has been busy making different versions of the base Eisblock XPX CPU water block design originally introduced in 2016. We take a look at the Eisblock XPX Aurora Edge today, which is a higher profile version with integrated d-RGB lighting and a clear plexi top for the bling.

  "The past practice of assuming a uniform heat flow between a package and heat sink over the full area of the package is shown to be inadequate with high-power packages. The Heat Transfer Area (HTA)method uses the same assumption of a uniform flux as before, but uses a value for the bounding area determined from a detailed finite element analysis of the package and heat sink. For this method to become more widely useful, correlations are needed to generate appropriate HTA values for arbitrary package and heat sink designs. Once the appropriate HTA is on hand, then the remainder of the calculation is straightforward."

  "Corsair has really made a name for themselves in the CPU cooling market, specifically the all-in-one liquid cooling market. We’ve reviewed quite a lot of these type of coolers and they have been quite good. When it comes to air coolers Corsair has not actually put out an air cooler in 8 years! That is all changing with the introduction of the A500. This massive, dual-fan CPU cooler is priced to compete with the likes of Noctua, Scythe, and Cooler Master and should be able to handle some pretty high thermal loads. Read on as we take a look!"

  We have tested the brand new Alphacool Eisbaer Aurora 360 AIO water cooling for the official launch. The Eisbaer Aurora is a closed water cooling system that is easy to install and can be easily and safely expanded with a quick-release fastener. The aRGB lighting has been added, and the pump should also be more powerful, but work more quietly than before. We are excited about it and take a close look at everything on OCinside.de. Additionally with new videos of the RGB effects, the pump noise and the fan volume.

  The latest all-in-one liquid cooler to be released by SilverStone is the Permafrost Series (PF for short) and the version we're looking at here is the SilverStone PF240. Like its previous AIO coolers, SilverStone is trying to distinguish its products from the competition by employing features that are unique in the market. According to SilverStone, its Permafrost coolers all come with a multi-chamber cooling block design that isolates hot and cold liquid channels to prevent heat bleeding, and thus enables more efficient CPU cooling...

  Corsair's A500 dual-fan CPU cooler is a monster in terms of size, with an appealing design and features that set it apart. We found installation to be remarkably easy, too, but performance could be better. The review also goes into detail why we had to file down the heatpipes on the A500.

"The cooler certainly takes up some space on the motherboard. The A500 has a really cool feature that allows the fans to move or "ratchet" into position up the side of the cooler, allowing for RAM compatibility. You might need to consider your case depth with the A500. The cooler is 169mm tall, and normally this is all you need to know. But with the A500, depending on the RAM you are using, that 169mm number can grow - which is why you also need to watch your case depth. My Patriot Viper RAM had no problems so the fans could stay in the stock position, which is good because the Corsair 465X RGB case I am using for the system build allows for coolers that are up to 170mm, which leaves 1mm of clearance. Not much, but clearance is clearance."

"Corsair has been in the all-in-one (AIO) cooler game for years, constantly changing up their products for improved performance and aesthetics. We have looked at many of their AIOs in the past, most recently the H115i RGB Platinum. Today we are back with an AIO from Corsair’s latest lineup of iCUE RGB PRO XT coolers, the H115i RGB PRO XT Liquid CPU Cooler. This new AIO pairs Corsair’s latest waterblock and pump design with addressable RGB lighting, a 280mm radiator, and two 140mm ML fans for quiet cooling performance."

Today we test on OCinside.de the brand new 360 Kraken Z73 AIO watercooling, which was officially introduced by NZXT at review date. The outstanding feature of this all in one cooling solution is the pump head, as it is equipped with a large 320x320px LCD display! The new NZXT Kraken Z-Series is available as NZXT Kraken Z63 with 280mm radiator and the tested NZXT Kraken Z73 with 360mm radiator. So much in advance, we are absolutely fascinated!

  We wrap up our coverage of individual entries debuting CORSAIR's Hydro X series with the mainstream XC7 CPU water block. Sharing a lot of DNA with the impressive XC9, this block aims to offer a good balance of cost, aesthetics, and performance while maintaining a low barrier of entry for newcomers to PC watercooling.
