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.

Today at OCinside.de we take a close look at the Intel CPU Heatspreader and clarify whether it is worth the effort to grind and polish the CPU IHS or not. The latest high-tech measuring equipment is used, as it is used in aerospace and Formula 1. First of all, there will be some surprises! The following workshop will show you exactly which ones.

Here's what happens the moment the socket applies force to the CPU IHS:

(Graphical elevation of the flatness measurement of an unprocessed Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 CPU in a CLAMPED state. Variance = 0.0466mm)

The one tricky bit to all of this is how the ~70lbs force applied by the mounted heatsink distorts the IHS further, potentially evening out some of the distortions caused by the socket clamping forces. Still,nice to see inspection machine put to good use!

"With great power comes great responsibility", of course, I am talking about TDP (Thermal Design Power) of internal computer components like CPU and GPU. I feel like every six months a new CPU arrives on the market and it is faster and offers more Cores than the previous one. But no matter what CPU comes out we still need to …

The Core i9-9900KS is Intel's new consumer flagship processor. It runs at 5 GHz boost, no matter how many cores are active, which translates into 10% application performance gained over the 9900K. Gaming performance is improved too, but the pricing is high, especially compared to what AMD is offering.

It may not be able to compete with larger models but for a compact CPU cooler the True Spirit 120M Rev.B by Thermalright actually surpassed our performance expectations.

  Corsair’s QL-series of fans are available in 120mm and 140mm, with both being available individually, or in multi-packs. The 120mm can be purchased in a triple pack and the 140mm in double packs. Each multi-pack comes with an iCUE Lighting Node CORE which can control up to six of the brand new QL RGB fans, as well as other Corsair RGB fans, through a single USB 2.0 internal header.

  Today, we are reviewing an AIO cooler from Silverstone: the Permafrost PF240. Silverstone is not entirely a newcomer in the AIO segment of the market. In the past, they introduced the Tundra series (120/240 mm), which was available in an RGB version as well.

  With a polished silver heat spreader and a pastel RGB LED diffuser that is available in seven different colors, the PRISM II RGB kit from V-Color certainly has flair. This premium kit has the perfect sweet spot for Ryzen performance with a 3600 MHz XMP profile and is affordably priced to boot.

  At this point, nearly everyone has their own RGB fans on the market but really only a few companies have been innovating at all. Corsair has been at the forefront of that so much so that Corsair and RGB lighting has become a meme sometimes on Reddit. Its okay Corsair, this is a safe space, we can talk about your love for RGB. Specifically, I want to talk a little about their new QL series of RGB fans that is launching today. I’ve had them around the office for a few weeks and I’ve had time to play around with them a little. Corsairs' big change with QL fans is that they have “spectacular lighting from any angle”. With lighting similar to their Light Loop fans, only this time around they doubled up and have lighting on the back as well and the edges have the lighting visible as well.

  One fan. 34 addressable RGB LEDs. That alone will be enough for many to decide if the new CORSAIR iCUE QL RGB fan is for you. Coming in both 120 and 140 mm sizes, CORSAIR's latest fans can do double duty and light up your house for the holiday season, in addition to your new PC build.

  Since AMD is on the cusp of releasing its 3^rd generation of Ryzen Threadripper high-end desktop processors, we thought this would be an ideal time to return to testing socket TR4 CPU coolers or sTRX4 as it is soon to be known, on our Ryzen Threadripper 2950X test bench.

  AMD today uncovers the Ryzen 9 3950X performance benchmarks, we reviewed the processor extensively. It's the Ryzen 3000 processor with the sixteen cores, thirty-two threads cores and the fastest single-core clock at 4.7 GHz. It is fast, feisty and agile in any way you look at it.

AMD didn’t hit the initial September release target Dr. Su had originally mentioned for the Ryzen 9 3950X, citing stronger than anticipated demand for currently shipping products. The Ryzen 9 3950X is due to ship in a coupe of weeks though, alongside those beastly new Threadrippers, and we were lucky enough to take one for a spin. We don’t want to spoil the rest of the review for you right out of the gate, but as you’ll see, the new AMD Ryzen 9 3950X was absolutely worth the wait...

  EK Water Blocks adds to their fan portfolio with the massive 38 mm thick Meltemi. Available in their -ER (extended range) version, the EK-Meltemi aims to take their popular Vardar fan as a base and build upon it with a bigger, badder motor, and promises high static pressure optimization for PC DIY water cooling.

  The NZXT H510i may look like the H500i at first sight, but this is just the natural result of an extremely good, solid design mentality as the case still looks as great as ever. However, with the update, you will find various subtle but mostly justified changes that certainly warrant a new model number.
