"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. "

Apr 10, 2016 - Frosty No.2796
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


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.

Scythe Fuma SCFM-1000 Heatsink
Apr 04, 2016 - Frosty No.2794
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


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.


Scythe Ninja 4 SCNH-4000 Heatsink Review
Feb 08, 2016 - Frosty No.2793
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


While Scythe doesn't overtly market its heatsinks as "silent" coolers, the company has typically produced coolers which meet the quiet esthetic.


DeepCool Maelstrom 240 Liquid Cooling System Review
Jan 04, 2016 - Frosty No.2792
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


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 Gamer Storm Lucifer K2 Heatsink Review
Jan 02, 2016 - Frosty No.2791
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


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.


Gelid Antarctica Heatsink Review
Jan 01, 2016 - Frosty No.2790
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Gelid Antarctica heatsink features a nice narrow footprint which measures 141x74mm with the 140mm fan installed. The slim profile should make the Antarctica cooler more compatible with a larger range of motherboards.

Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Shadow Rock LP is a 75mm tall low profile heatsink rated for heat loads up to 130W TDP. It's built around four 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and relies on a single 120x120x25mm "PureWings" fan operating at 1500RPM.


IBM Watson Analytics for Heatsink Test Data
Jun 10, 2015 - Frosty No.2787
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


I've been playing with IBM's Watson Analytics, running Frostytech's test data through the wee cloud to see what it can predict. Here are some of the results.


BeQuiet Dark Rock TF Heatsink Review
May 26, 2015 - Frosty No.2786
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Dark Rock TF has an upside-down pyramid sort of profile, measuring 140x165mm at the top and 98x102mm at a height of 22mm above the CPU. It ships with two identical 135x25mm SilentWings fans that operate 1400RPM and move upwards of 68CFM at 1.85mm/H2O


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.
