"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."

Zalman CNPS9900 Max Heatsink Review
Dec 24, 2010 - Frosty No.2567
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The CNPS9900 Max heatsink has a total heat dissipation surface area on the order of 5402cm2, stands 150mm tall and weighs 755 grams. The manufacturer claims max heat capacity is a whopping 300W! CPU compatibility extends to Intel socket 775/1155/1156/1366 and AMD socket AM2/AM3 processors.


Dynatron Evo-11 Heatsink Review
Dec 19, 2010 - Frosty No.2565
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Dynatron's Evo-11 heatsink hopes to make its mark with a unique implementation of 6mm heatpipes. Two rows of heatpipes, four below and three above form the base of the Evo-11 heatsink. All the heatpipes are set into a pretty hefty nickel plated aluminum base block, formed from three separate slabs of metal soldered together.


Nexus VCT-9000 Heatsink Review
Dec 13, 2010 - Frosty No.2561
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Frostytech is not going to waste your time by leaving the most important information till the very end of this review - the Nexus VCT-9000 heatsink is an interesting looking thermal solution, but it fails completely in its execution. Nexus have manufactured the VCT-9000 heatsink poorly, resulting in uneven exposed heatpipes that may not contact the processor properly.


Titan Hati TTC-NC15TZ Heatsink Review
Dec 12, 2010 - Frosty No.2560
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


In this review Frostytech is testing Titan's new Hati TTC-NC15TZ exposed heatpipe base CPU cooler. The TTC-NC15TZ is capable of very good performance results with the supplied 120mm PWM fan operating at full speed, however that trend quickly changes direction once fan speed is brought down for quieter operation...


Arctic Cooling Freezer 11LP Heatsink Review
Dec 12, 2010 - Frosty No.2559
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Arctic Cooling's Freezer 11 LP heatsink is comprised of two sections, a ~100x80mm heatsink fin stack and a thin 92mm fan integral with mounting bracket and fan shroud. The fin stack is comprised of nickel plated fins which are soldered to a pair of 6mm diameter copper heatpipes.


Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 Heatsink Review
Dec 12, 2010 - Frosty No.2558
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Rated for heat loads of up to 200W according to the manufacturer, the Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 is a relatively compact sub-130mm tall heatsink. It's 92mm fan utilizes fluid dynamic bearings and a low noise impeller design.


Apack Zerotherm ZT-10D Premium Heatsink Review
Dec 09, 2010 - Frosty No.2557
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


In this review Frostytech is testing the Apack Zerotherm ZT-10D Premium, a dark nickel plated tower heatsink that is capable of mounting one or two 120mm fans in a push-pull configuration.


Glacialtech Alaska Heatsink Review
Dec 06, 2010 - Frosty No.2555
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


A promising looking tower heatsink, the Glacialtech Alaska CPU cooler sets itself apart with the use of perforated aluminum cooling fins, a pseudo-honeycomb cross sectional fin geometry and six 6mm diameter copper heatpipes tightly packed behind an integral nickel-plated copper heatspreader.


Scythe SCRT-1000 Rasetsu Heatsink Review
Dec 03, 2010 - Frosty No.2554
Category: Computer / SFF PCs


Broad processor support, however, is not what makes the Scythe Rasetsu heatsink stand out.... instead it's a mixture of acute and obtuse isosceles triangular voids cut into the leading and trailing edges of the heatsinks aluminum fins.


Glacialtech Siberia Heatsink Review
Dec 01, 2010 - Frosty No.2553
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The upper fan on the Glacialtech Siberia heatsink measures 140x140mm in size and rotates at 1400-800RPM, the lower 2x92mm fan operates at a fixed speed of 1300RPM. With both fans running at full speed the Siberia heatsink is moderately quiet.


Coolink Corator DS Heatsink Review
Nov 05, 2010 - Frosty No.2548
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The asymmetrical fin stacks of the Corator DS heatsink permit air to more easily enter the heatsink by widening the fin spacing just fore of the vaneaxial fan.


Akasa Venom Heatsink Review
Sep 19, 2010 - Frosty No.2536
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Akasa Venom heatsink stands 160mm tall and weighs just over 800grams. It's built around four 8mm diameter copper heatpipes and raw aluminum cooling fins. The Venom ships with a fancy nuclear yellow fan called the 'S-Flow' that spins at 600-1900RPM, moving around 83CFM according to the manufacturer.


SilenX EFZ-120HA3 Heatsink Review
Sep 18, 2010 - Frosty No.2542
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The SilenX EFZ-120HA3 is kind of an odd heatsink if you think about it. The fin body is narrower than average tower heatsinks but the EFZ-120HA3 doesn't take up any less space.


SilenX EFZ-100HA1 Heatsink Review
Sep 15, 2010 - Frosty No.2543
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


In this review Frostytech will be testing out one of the latest hopefuls, the SilenX EFZ-100HA1 heatsink. This low profile cooler is a complex little bundle of heatpipes and fins, and stands only 67mm tall.


Thermolab BARAM 2010 Heatsink Review
Sep 12, 2010 - Frosty No.2544
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Although it doesn't look it, the BARAM 2010 heatsink is slightly different than the original BARAM model. What sets the two BARAM heatsink models apart is - fin density - the number of aluminum fins each heatsink packs into the roughly 105mm vertical space.


DeepCool Gamer Storm Heatsink Review
Sep 08, 2010 - Frosty No.2545
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Deepcool Gamer Storm heatsink is a tower cooler standing over 155mm tall and weighing upwards of 1189 grams. At its heart are no fewer than six, 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and 48 aluminum fins.


Glacialtech Igloo 5760 PWM Heatsink Review
Sep 06, 2010 - Frosty No.2541
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Standing just 88mm tall, the Glacialtech Igloo 5760 PWM heatsink is relatively compact as modern CPU coolers go. Small through it may be, Glacialtech seem to have engineered it in just the right spots to manage the demanding peak thermal loads of top-end processors like the AMD Phenom II X4.


SilenX EFZ-120HA4 Heatsink Review
Sep 03, 2010 - Frosty No.2540
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The SilenX EFZ-120HA4 heatsink is a full tower cooler, standing 151mm tall and weighing 836 grams. It ships with a single non-PWM 120mm SilenX 'Effizio Series Quiet Fan' mounted to the aluminum fin tower with four rubber vibration absorbing posts.


SilenX EFZ-80HA2 Low Profile Heatsink Review
Sep 01, 2010 - Frosty No.2539
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Tiny heatsinks have their place, but at first glance the SilenX EFZ-80HA2 heatsink really only seems suitable for cooling energy efficient or sub-85W TDP microprocessors...


Thermolab BADA2010 Heatsink Review
Aug 30, 2010 - Frosty No.2538
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Thermolab's BADA2010 heatsink is equipped with one 95mm PWM fan mounted to the heatsinks' raw aluminum fins with permanently attached rubber vibration absorbing posts.


Akasa Venom Nano Heatsink Review
Aug 17, 2010 - Frosty No.2535
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Akasa's Venom Nano heatsink stands 150mm tall, weighs 560 grams and installs onto AMD socket AM2/AM3 and Intel socket 775/1156/1366 processors. Off the cuff though, it seems a little modest for Intel Core i7 use, dito for AMD Black Edition chips.


Glacialtech Igloo 5751 PWM Heatsink Review
Aug 16, 2010 - Frosty No.2534
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The old cool had a matched set of 20mm thick 92mm fans running in balance with respect to airflow, the Igloo 5751 PWM Frostytech is testing today approaches things differently.


DeepCool Ice Warrior Heatsink Review
Jul 28, 2010 - Frosty No.2533
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


In this review Frostytech is testing a novel heatsink from Beijing-based DeepCool Industries Co. called the Ice Warrior. Names aside, the Ice Warrior heatsink is a 155mm tall tower heatsink that utilizes six 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and a fairly hefty copper base plate.


Noctua NH-D14 Lower Noise Heatsink Review
May 27, 2010 - Frosty No.2525
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Weighing in at 1240 grams, the 161mm tall, 140x156mm square Noctua NH-D14 processor heatsink is large no matter how you size it up. This heatsink currently ranks near the top of Frostytech's Top 5 Heatsinks chart, and since we're comparing it against nearly 280 heatsinks, that should tell you something.


Cryo Tech and New Cooling Technologies You Have Never Seen
May 27, 2010 - Frosty No.2424
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Frostytech departs from the usual pixel fodder for a brief look at some cooling technologies you have never seen before. We touch on some fun tests from the unpublished Frostytech archives and collect all the thermodynamics research we've reported on into one location.


Thermaltake Frio Heatsink Review
May 18, 2010 - Frosty No.2523
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Thermaltake have finally produced an excellent high performance heatsink worthy of FrostyTech's Top 5 Heatsink chart. All it took was two fans, five 8mm diameter heatpipes, a 1kg mass of metal and a little concentrated effort.


Coolermaster Vortex Plus Heatsink Review
May 17, 2010 - Frosty No.2522
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Vortex Plus heatsink stands 83mm tall, in total. A 25mm thick, 92mm PWM fan exhausts downward so waste air impinges on a lower extruded aluminum heatsink that sits atop the processor. It's both a good use of space for additional cooling surface area and an admission by heatsink designers that the aluminum fins above aren't getting the whole job done by themselves.


Spire Thermax Eclipse II SP984B1-V2 Heatsink Review
May 12, 2010 - Frosty No.2521
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Standing 155mm tall, the Thermax Eclipse II heatsink weighs 822 grams and ships with two 120mm fans. Only one fan needs to be installed (default configuration), but if you think two fans are better than one be prepared for a moderately loud outcome. Both 120mm fans are non-PWM, so they rotate at a fixed 2200RPM all the time.
