Thermaltake SpinQ VT Heatsink Review
Mar 02, 2010 - Frosty No.2502
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Thermaltake's SpinQ VT heatsink is undeniably unique, it's sculptural and nothing about its helical fin arrangement is unnecessarily complex. The SpinQ VT heatsink stands 162mm tall and is made from nickel plated aluminum fins soldered over six copper heatpipes, which are really three heatpipes doubled over into a U-shape.

Zalman CNPS10X Flex Heatsink Review
Feb 26, 2010 - Frosty No.2500
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

The Zalman CNPS10X Flex heatsink ships without any fans, so users can install one or two 120mm fans of their own choosing. In all other respects the CNPS10X Flex is identical to Zalman's CNPS10X Quiet heatsink, so today's review is not going to be a huge departure from what we saw from the Quiet.

XtremeGear HP-1216B Heatsink Review
Feb 24, 2010 - Frosty No.2499
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Standing 153mm tall, the HP-1216B heatsink is equipped with a single no-name 120mm fan that rotates at 2000-1000RPM and is illuminated by four blue LEDs. At full speed it's moderately audible, and at the slowest speed you'll get good performance a nearly silent levels.

Zalman CNPS10X Quiet Heatsink Review
Feb 17, 2010 - Frosty No.2497
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

As a low noise heatsink the Zalman CNPS10X Quiet maintains good thermal levels on Frosty's AMD/Intel test platforms, and at full tilt it qualifies as a performance heatsink.

Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme Heatsink Review
Jan 12, 2010 - Frosty No.2480
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Tuniq's Tower 120 Extreme is an enthusiast grade heatsink that cools very well, pretty quietly. In fact I'll save you the suspense and tell you straight up that it tops Frostytech's Intel reference chart and that it's one of the Top 5 best-ever heatsinks tested.

Zalman CNPS10X Extreme Heatsink Review
Jan 03, 2010 - Frosty No.2475
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Zalman's CNPS10X Extreme fulfills both roles pretty well care of a cleverly integrated PWM fan speed controller in the top part of the fan shroud. Do nothing and the CNPS10X Extreme's 120mm fan will fall under BIOS control, automatically scaling fan speed from 1000RPM to 2150RPM as needed.

Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Dec 12, 2009 - Frosty No.2483

The 697 gram Thermaltake ISGC-300 heatsink stands 160mm tall, so it may not fit in all mid-tower or compact PC chassis.

Heatpipe Wick Structures Exposed: Sintered, Groove and Mesh
Nov 03, 2009 - Frosty No.2466
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

It's impossible to tell what type of wick a heatpipe uses in your favourite heatsink just by looking at it from the outside. The heatpipe would need to be cut open to find out the answer to that question....

3Rsystem Iceage 120 Boss II Dimpled-Fin Heatsink Review
Oct 26, 2009 - Frosty No.2461
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Let's get right to the point, 3Rsystem's Iceage 120 Boss II heatsink is currently one of the Top 5 heatsinks tested on Frostytech. Key to the success of this Korean-made heatsink on both AMD and Intel synthetic test platforms are five 8mm diameter exposed base heatpipes...
