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. 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.

We review three Noctua CPU coolers designed for Ryzen Threadripper / X399 motherboards with Socket TR4/SP3. All three coolers tested have recently been introduced into the channel with kicks performance and versus some really nice airflow, PWM controlled fan. Noctua is re-using their older model NH-U9 - NH-U12S NH-U14S, however, revamped base cooling base plate and the mounting mechanism to fully cover the Threadripper heat spreader.

In this review I'm taking a look at the new BioniX fans. These were introduced a couple of months ago and they're positioned as this new flagship fans from Arctic. As the names suggest, the BioniX F120 is a 120mm model, while the Bionix F140 has a diameter of 140mm. These fans were designed to offer a low noise level, low vibration and high airflow output.

"be quiet! is a company that when we were introduced to them mainly made power supplies, CPU coolers, and fans. Not that long ago they started to venture into cases and actually made a pretty good name for themselves in that area. Today we have the pleasure of checking out their flagship PC case, the Dark Base Pro 900. This massive case has room inside for some of the most insane setups, comes with three of be quiet’s own SilentWings 3 PWM fans, has a removable motherboard tray and modular internal design, two included LED strips, and even an integrated wireless charger for Qi enabled devices. It seems like be quiet! has though of everything possible with this case. Let’s jump in and see if that is true!"

All-in-one coolers have found their way into domestic PCs for several years and we were already able to test dozens of them. Most AIO designs are very similar. Antec is trying to set some accents in the Mercury series with some eye-catching attachments and a very special lighting. We tested the model with the 120mm radiator and show in the current Antec Mercury M120 review how the new CPU cooler performs.

The days of the giant ATX gaming system are behind us, surely. A single-slot mITX system is smaller and less expensive than a full-sized ATX system, and modern video card performance precludes the need for SLI or Crossfire X for the vast majority of users. What, then, are we to make of Zalman’s massive Z-Machine X7 computer case? This is the largest case Benchmark Reviews has seen since the Cooler Master Cosmos: at x by y by z inches and weighing in at almost 40 pounds empty, this glass and aluminum monster will make its presence known with the help of a plethora of RGB fans and lighting effects.

"Noctua makes some of the best air CPU coolers out there. When it comes to Ryzen they were one of the only manufacturers to have a full line of AM4 coolers ready. We’ve already taken a look at the big boy NH-D15 SE-AM4, with its amazing cooling performance. While the NH-D15 SE-AM4 is one of the best coolers for Ryzen it can be overkill for many people, and its shear size might not make it for everyone. Well Noctua has a smaller cooler made for Ryzen in their NH-U12S SE-AM4, which of course is their very popular NH-U12S with an AM4 mounting bracket. This single tower cooler features 5 large heatpipes and a 120 mm cooling fan. On top of that it has 100% RAM compatibility, so you shouldn’t run into any clearance issues."

"(Read with action movie voice over guy voice) In a world filled with heartache, turmoil, and strife. A world without direction or promise of a future, many are left with questions. Questions like, ‘What should I use to cool my CPU?’, ‘There are so many AiOs which one is right for me?’, and even ‘Isn’t the cooler that came with it good enough?’. If you find yourself echoing those thoughts you’ve come to the right place. Today we’re taking a look at a brand new AiO from a company just entering this ultra competitive space, Reeven, with their NAIA 240. This interesting first try at a watercooling part stands out with a clear, led backlit, refillable reservoir chamber. Follow along as we find out if this cooler is the right one to solve all your worries and fears."

From time to time some water cooled PCs would like to be prepared for presentation purposes. So today we are testing the coolant Aurora by Mayhems on OCinside.de, which wants to attract attention with an unique effect. In addition, there is a new video of the red and blue Mayhems Aurora 2 coolant at our OCinside YouTube Channel.

The Gentle Typhoon made a comeback recently under the DarkSide brand, and in an all-black color scheme too. It was the fan of choice for PC DIY enthusiasts only a few years ago, and in this review, we will see how it holds up against newer fans and features alike.

"For the heat sink to function properly, even contact must be achieved between the part being cooled and the heat source. This can be difficult to achieve due to the mechanically “stiff” nature of the heat sink and hard surfaces involved; where contact may be achieved well at one or two points, larger regions of potential contact have gaps. The Tekscan I-Scan pressure mapping system uses patented, paper-thin sensors that can easily be inserted between these two mating surfaces to evaluate and improve the contact."

The majority of thermal interface materials used between a heatsink and CPU fall into one of two camps; oxide/nitride-based pastes or soft metal foils with high thermal conductivity that conform to the two mating surfaces (think Indium).

KULR Technology on the other hand offer a new and very unique, carbon fiber-based thermal interface material (FTI). The Fiber based Thermal Interface reportedly has a high bulk thermal conductivity up to 90W/mK, low thermal resistance at below 0.10°C in2/W and requires a little has 5psi contact pressure (20psi for full performance). While paste thermal compounds are applied as thin as possible, the KULR FTI material can be applied in thicknesses up to 1mm.

What does KULR's carbon fiber-based thermal interface material look like?

It looks like fuzz.

"We are now into the Holiday Season and what better way to celebrate then to give some gear away to you guys! This time we’ve teamed up with Reeven to give away three of their products! Those products include a Justice CPU Cooler, Polariz Fan Controller, and two (2) EUROS fans. Three great products that would make an awesome addition to any system! Just like our prior contests this one is extremely easy to enter."

Scythe is a major player in the air cooling space with a dizzying array of coolers for virtually any application from the Japanese company. In addition to some of the most compact coolers in the business Scythe also offers some of the highest performing - and most quiet - tower coolers available. Two of the largest coolers in the lineup are the new Mugen 5 Rev. B, and the Grand Kama Cross 3 - the latter of which is one of their most outlandish designs.

„Successor to the award-winning NH-L12, the NH-L12S is a compact low-profile CPU cooler that combines excellent compatibility, surprising efficiency and remarkable flexibility. Thanks to its NF-A12x15 PWM, slim 120mm fan, the NH-L12S provides even better quiet cooling performance than the previous model with its 92mm fan.“
