See all Noctua heatsink reviews available [X]
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 DeepCool's Maelstrom 240 is a self contained CPU liquid 
cooling system consists of a dual fan, 240mm wide aluminum heat 
exchanger and combination pump head / skived copper waterblock. With Frostytech's synthetic thermal test platforms applying up to a 200W heat load, only we can accurately rank how the Maelstrom 240 liquid cooler stacks up DeepCool's Gamer Storm Lucifer K2 heatsink is a revised version of the original Gamer Storm Lucifer heatsink, which Frostytech tested about a year back. The Lucifer K2 heatsink only differs in that it's not nickel plated and ships with a slim profile (20mm thick)120mm fan which makes the heatsink a little more accommodating on confined motherboards.

Cooler Master has just announced their new MasterLiquid series of CPU coolers, built using a special “FlowOp” technology that analyzes how heat is absorbed and dissipated to construct a better cooling solution than the competition. The end result was a dual chamber design that did both improve the cooling performance, but also dramatically extended the product’s functional lifetime. In this preview article, Benchmark Reviews covers some of the finer points that separate the MasterLiquid cooler series from everything else on the market.

"The industrialPPC 140mm fans are very well built and can be used for both industrial and PC chassis applications; the 24V versions are ideal as case fans because they produce little to no noise at half the voltage they receive inside a computer chassis, but if you are also planning on replacing the fans on the water cooling radiators, you have to get the 12V models. The 12V industrialPPC 140mm PWM fans will be ran at higher speeds in order to cool the radiator fins properly, while keeping the noise levels as low as possible thanks to the integrated technologies."

"With the Le Grand Macho RT we offer an actively cooled version of our famous semi-passive flagship. Thanks to the silent-running TY 147 B with fluid dynamic bearing, the Le Grand Macho RT can cool up to 280 watt.

The design of the heat sink has not been changed and is still asymmetrical. This offers the highest possible compatibility to the most recent motherboards. Thus it is guaranteed that the Le Grand Macho RT neither blocks the RAM spaces, nor the top-most PCIe slot on current ATX-boards.

Visually, the Le Grand Macho RT is top of the line. The heatsink shines in silver nickel plating and features a black anodized top fin, combined with the black and white fan.

Also available in stores now are the TY 127 – for users who want to install a second fan on their cooler – as well as the TY 141SV, a slightly upgraded version of the TY 141. Both fans make use of side vents, just like the TY 147 B, in order to reduce the noise of the fan even further. At 14 – 21 dB(A) the TY 141 SV is even more silent than its predecessor.

For fans of retro coolers the original HR-02 is now available again. The cooler, which has been introduced in 2010 for the first time, was the inspiration for our Macho cooler and is still one of the most powerful coolers of its kind. The cooler comes with the VX-II bolt-through kit included, which can be used to mount the HR-02 on all current Intel- and AMD-CPUs. Our screwdriver and the Chill Factor III thermal compound are included as well.

All coolers are now available in stores. The MSRP of the Le Grand Macho RT is 59.99€, that of the TY 127 is 8.99€ and finally the MSRP for the TY 141SV is set at 15.99€. The HR-02 is available for 54.99€"

There is perhaps no other company devoted to silence than German manufacturer be quiet!. Their entire product line revolves around the idea of having the most silent operating PC components around and they are resolutely focused on that goal. With plenty of award-winning coolers and power supplies in their stable, they have launched their first full-tower case in 2014, dubbed …

The Silverstone Argon series of heatsinks comprise of value-minded CPU air cooling solutions available in tower-style or heatpiped low-profile models. Of the three that use a low-profle design, the Argon AR06 is the more capable cooler equipped with four heatpipes compared to the dual-heatpiped AR05 and AR04. With a 92mm fan designed for quiet operation, the Argon AR06 fits well …

Figuring out which component is compatible with which electronically is hard enough as it is for casual system builders that the last thing one needs is to find out that their heatsink does not fit with their case or RAM module heatspreader physically after all parts have been purchased. That is why clearance compatibility information is essential in a cooler …

”The NH-C14S takes the already great design of the NH-C14 and refines it to a new level. What does the NH-C14S bring to the table? It gets the job done with a single, more powerful fan, and the new offset of the fin stack provides clearance for the first PCIe slot on your motherboard. The C-type design gives you a much lower profile that lets you build your system in most HTPC-style cases. You still get the options of using either Low Profile mode or High Clearance mode. And of course, all that air the NF-A14 moves through the cooler gets directed down across the RAM modules, VRM, and other motherboard components. That amounts to extra cooling for free. The SecuFirm2™ mounting system is just the greatest thing. Installing a cooler really can't be much easier. It really needs to be an industry standard in my opinion.”

The weight and bulk of water cooling systems as well as the need to ensure water-tight connections have, so far, kept them from ever being used in a latop. That changes with the ROG GX700 – the world’s first liquid-cooled gaming laptop.

"Now, we've known that most CPUs equipped with an IHS — all desktop models for a decade — are either flat or have slight concavity. We've discussed this in the forums and in many of our heatsink reviews (like the one mentioned above). Thermalright is named explicitly by this contact, but many other heatsinks have slightly convex bases as well. They include models from Prolimatech, Phanteks, Scythe and a few from Noctua. Some of these heatsinks feature mounting mechanisms capable of very high pressure. All, not surprisingly, have had models that performed very well on our 1366 test platform. Our LGA1366 CPU has taken them all on; the implication is that it must be more concave than it was when new. "

Today we’ll be putting CRYORIG’s A40 Ultimate under the spotlight. The A40 Ultimate is a 240mm all-in-one liquid CPU cooler which has the added bonus of arriving with a supplementary 70mm airflow fan designed to assist with easing off those temperatures for the motherboard MOSFETs or memory. This liquid cooler also benefits from Asetek’s 5th generation pump so we’re anticipating good things from today’s observation.

"CRYORIG burst on to the cooling scene not that long ago and every cooler we’ve seen from them has been pretty impressive. The coolers we’ve reviewed from CRYORIG have been their high performance coolers, but what about someone who just needs a basic cooler? Something better than the stock cooler that comes with their processor? When it comes to a basic cooler there are a few things we believe it needs to have. First and most importantly it needs to have better performance than a stock CPU cooler that ships with the processor. Secondly it needs to be easy to install, no one wants a complicated install process, especially a first time builder. And finally, it needs to be affordable. CRYORIG thinks that they have a cooler that fits these specifications in their M9 CPU Cooler. They say it is 33% cooler than the Intel stock cooler, it shouldn’t take more than a few minutes to install, and currently the cooler is selling for $25.99 at our favorite online retailer. Seems too good to be true? Let’s jump in and see what the M9i is all about!"

The brand new Macho 120 SBM CPU cooler by Thermalright lands right between the older Macho 120 Rev.A and the newer Macho Zero models in terms of size so it should offer a way out for consumers looking for a mid-sized model to fit in their rig.
