"Scythe's Mugen Max heatsink weighs 870grams and stands 166mm tall. The heatsink is constructed around six 6mm diameter copper heatpipes which are soldered to a 2mm thick nickel plated copper base plate. The heatpipes are swaged into a 113x145x84mm aluminum fin stack which is roughly broken up into four nearly-separate cooling towers."

Scythe Mugen Max SCMGD-1000 Heatsink Review
Apr 20, 2015 - Frosty No.2785
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Scythe's Mugen Max heatsink weighs 870grams and stands 166mm tall. The heatsink is constructed around six 6mm diameter copper heatpipes which are soldered to a 2mm thick nickel plated copper base plate. The heatpipes are swaged into a 113x145x84mm aluminum fin stack which is roughly broken up into four nearly-separate cooling towers.


Phanteks PH-TC12LS Low Profile Heatsink Review
Apr 15, 2015 - Frosty No.2784
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


In this review Frostytech is testing the Phanteks PH-TC12LS heatsink, a top-down low profile heatsink that stands 74mm tall and weighs in at 500grams. The PH-TC12LS has a footprint about the size of the 120mm PWM fan that rests atop its black-painted aluminum fins.


Phanteks PH-TC14S Slim Tower Heatsink Review
Apr 12, 2015 - Frosty No.2783
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The whole premise behind the slim-tower Phanteks PH-TC14S heatsink is not overhanging memory slots - if you've built an Intel X99 based computer recently, you're undoubtedly aware that the memory slots straddle either side of the LGA2011-3 CPU socket with a little less than 20mm to spare.


Scythe Ashura SCASR-1000 Heatsink Review
Apr 06, 2015 - Frosty No.2782
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


On the review bench today we have Scythe's Ashura heatsink; this is a fairly standard tower cooler equipped with a 140mm fan. The Ashura cooler stands 162mm tall, making it suitable for full tower cases where AIO liquid coolers are often too bulky.


Noctua NH-U9S Compact Lower Noise Heatsink Review
Mar 02, 2015 - Frosty No.2781
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The NH-U9S heatsink stands 125mm tall and has a square footprint of 95x95mm. Weighing 618grams, the heatsink is built around five 6mm diameter heatpipes which are soldered to the aluminum cooling fins and copper base plate in typical Noctua fashion.


ID-Cooling SE-214X Heatsink Review
Feb 05, 2015 - Frosty No.2780
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


By doing away with the heatsink heatspreader, inconsistencies in the solder bond between heatpipes and copper base plate are omitted. The exposed heatpipe base approach also lightens things up, the 160mm tall SE-214X weighs a modest 740grams. In addition to the copper heatpipes there is the aforementioned vertical aluminum rod going down through the center of the fins.


BeQuiet Pure Rock Heatsink Review
Jan 26, 2015 - Frosty No.2779
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


On the test bench today we have BeQuiet's Pure Rock heatsink - a 155mm tall tower cooler built around four 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and paired with one of BeQuiet's 'Pure Wings 2' low noise 120mm fans.


DeepCool Gamer Storm Lucifer Heatsink Review
Jan 02, 2015 - Frosty No.2777
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The DeepCool Gamer Storm Lucifer heatsink is a fairly large CPU cooler, very much resembling a passive thermal solution on quick glance due to its boxy footprint and widely spaced aluminum fins. The heatsink isn't a passive cooler though, its single fan is very much required to keep the Lucifer from becoming like its name-sake.


Raijintek Tisis Dual-Tower Heatsink Review
Dec 29, 2014 - Frosty No.2776
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Raijintek Tisis is a massive dual tower CPU cooler with twin fans, five big heatpipes and a kick-ass-and-take-names kind of look to it. The Tisis is a big boxy heatsink that stands upwards of 168mm tall, weighs 1050grams and ships with two lower RPM 140x150mm PWM fans that spin at 1000-600RPM.


Reeven Okeanos RC-1402 Heatsink Review
Dec 29, 2014 - Frosty No.2775
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


At first glance you probably won't notice that Reeven's Okeanos RC-1402 heatsink uses two slightly different fans - a 120mm vaneaxial fan on the front and a 140mm fan in between the two aluminum fin stacks.


Reeven Justice RC-1204 Heatsink Review
Dec 28, 2014 - Frosty No.2774
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The 120mm PWM fan supplied with the Justice RC-1204 heatsink spins at 1500-300RPM and connects via a 4-pin PWM motherboard header. Six 6mm diameter heatpipes connect the 114mm tall aluminum fin stack to the base below.


Reeven Ouranos RC-1401 Heatsink Review
Dec 28, 2014 - Frosty No.2773
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


What's particularly interesting about the Reeven Ouranos heatsink is not the number of heatpipes or the fact that it's yet another 'tower heatsink'... but that Reeven's thermal engineers have decided to use a combination of 8mm and 6mm diameter heatpipes in concert.


Reeven Hans RC-1205 Heatsink Review
Dec 25, 2014 - Frosty No.2772
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Reeven Hans RC-1205 heatsink weighs in at 710 grams and accommodates the full range of Intel processors (socket LGA2011-3/2011/1366/115x/775) and AMD CPUs (socket AM2/AM3/FM1/FM2).


Cooler Master Nepton 240M Liquid Cooling System Review
Nov 04, 2014 - Frosty No.2778
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Coolermaster's Nepton 240M utilizes a 277x120mm aluminum heat exchanger that measures 28mm thick. The 'Silencio' is a novel high-pressure fan that spins at 2400RPM-800RPM to drive up to 76CFM at 4.8mmH2O air pressure, according to manufacturer specs. Connecting the heat exchanger to the Nepton 240M's waterblock is a 310mm length of 13mm O.D. corrugated Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene (FEP) tubing.


Coolermaster Hyper D92 Heatsink Review
Oct 01, 2014 - Frosty No.2771
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Coolermaster Hyper D92 is a moderately sized CPU cooler which stands 147mm tall and weighs 636 grams. The Hyper D92 ships with not a 120mm... or even 140mm fan, but rather a pair of 92mm fans that spin at 2800-800RPM. The fans move upwards of 15-55CFM according to manufacturer specs. Small 92mm fans may seem terribly risky, but Coolermaster have a trick up their sleeves.


BeQuiet Shadow Rock 2 Heatsink Review
Jun 08, 2014 - Frosty No.2770
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


In this review Frostytech is checking out the boxy BeQuiet's Shadow Rock 2 heatsink which stands 159mm tall and weighs in at 1120grams. This heatsink has a footprint of 122x122mm without a fan, 122x149mm with the supplied 1600-800rpm, 120mm PWM fan installed.


BeQuiet Shadow Rock Slim Heatsink Review
Jun 08, 2014 - Frosty No.2769
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


BeQuiet's Shadow Rock Slim heatsink stands 159mm tall and has a footprint of 130x74mm so it will fit most motherboards where space between the memory slots and videocard is on the tight side.


BeQuiet Dark Rock 3 Heatsink Review
May 23, 2014 - Frosty No.2768
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Dark Rock 3 stands 159mm tall and weighs in at 976 grams. Built around six, 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and a large aluminum fin stack, the Dark Rock 3 is rated to heat loads up to 190W TDP.


X2 Products Eclipse IV Heatsink Review
May 07, 2014 - Frosty No.2767
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Bearing close resemblance to the Prolimatech Megahalems Frostytech tested a few years back, the Eclipse IV heatsink is a bifurcated-tower cooler from heatsink manufacturer 'X2 Products' a brand offshoot of Spire Corp. The Eclipse IV heatsink is rated to a maximum cooling capacity of 220W by its makers and at first glance has the gravitas to back that claim up.


Noctua NH-D15 Heatsink Review
Apr 29, 2014 - Frosty No.2766
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Weighing 1,320 grams with both fans installed, Noctua's NH-D15 heatsink is big. It stands 162mm tall and has a footprint of 151x161mm so prospective buyers will want to measure their case clearances first. It's six heat pipes are soldered to the nickel plated copper base plate and aluminum cooling fins; overall the fit and finish is top notch.


Raijintek Pallas Low Profile Heatsink Review
Apr 16, 2014 - Frosty No.2765
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Standing just 69mm tall, the Raijintek Pallas CPU cooler is probably the largest low profile heatsink Frostytech as tested in recent memory.


Sandia Cooler: Air Bearing Heatsink Prototype - 2014 Update!
Mar 26, 2014 - Frosty No.2722
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Unlike traditional CPU coolers, heat energy in the Sandia Cooler is conducted across a very thin air gap bearing from the stationary base of the cooler to the upper rotating aluminum fin/fan component.


BeQuiet Dark Rock Pro 3 Low Noise Heatsink Review
Feb 21, 2014 - Frosty No.2764
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Dark Rock Pro 3 is dual tower, dual fan, low noise CPU heatsink. In other words, if you want a quiet heatsink that handles like a performance cooler AND you have a motherboard which can accommodate it's boxy footprint, you're reading the right CPU heatsink review!


Scythe Ashura Shadow Heatsink Review
Feb 17, 2014 - Frosty No.2763
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Scythe Ashura Shadow is a dark nickel plated version of the vanilla Ashura heatsink Scythe also has on the market. Structurally, there's no difference between the two coolers, aside from the cosmetic metal coating. The Ashura Shadow heatsink stands 162mm tall and has a footprint of 145x89mm so it should fit most motherboards without memory slot interference.


SilentiumPC Fera2 HE1224 Heatsink Review
Feb 03, 2014 - Frosty No.2762
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The SilentiumPC Fera2 HE1224 is a 154mm tall CPU cooler built around four 6mm diameter exposed copper heatpipes. The relatively thin profile should allow it to fit with ease in most motherboards, with a minimum of interference from near by memory module or VRM motherboard heatsinks.


nPowerTek NPH-1366-115HC Heatsink Review
Feb 03, 2014 - Frosty No.2760
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


At the center of the NPH-1366-115HC heatsink is nPowertek's proprietory copper heat column - essentially a 33mm diameter copper heatpipe. The inner walls and base of the heat column are covered by a sintered metal wick and the contents under vacuum with a small amount of working fluid.


nPowerTek NPH-1366-140HC Heatsink Review
Jan 30, 2014 - Frosty No.2759
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The nPowerTek NPH-1366-140HC heatsink is intended for socket LGA1366 Intel processors up to 130W TDP, but in this review Frostytech is going to stress it with a 200W heat load and see how it stacks up.


Dynatron G666 2U Xeon Server Heatsink Review
Jan 27, 2014 - Frosty No.2757
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The heatsink is built with a 60mm fan embedded at the front, directing airflow through a short stack of aluminum cooling fins which are connected to a copper base plate by three 6mm diameter heatpipes. The space before and after the heatpipes is filled with two narrow strips of skived copper fins for added cooling surface area.
