Dec 28, 2009 - Frosty No.2474

Corsair Hydro H50 Watercooling System Review
Dec 18, 2009 - Frosty No.2564
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

The Corsair H50 is a no fuss no muss, lower noise CPU thermal solution that installs with the relative ease of a regular CPU heatsink. The H50 liquid cooling system arrives fully assembled, pre-filled with a distilled water/propylene glycol coolant and is pre-plumbed.

Thermaltake ISGC-300 Heatsink Review
Dec 12, 2009 - Frosty No.2483
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

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

Dec 02, 2009 - Frosty No.2484
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

The 335gram ISGC-100 heatsink installs onto Intel socket 775 and AMD socket 754/939AM2/AM3 processors and should run about $29 USD/CDN.

Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

The Igloo 5610 Plus Silent ships with two 92mm fans, each spinning at 1200RPM but arranged in a push-pull fashion. A pre-applied patch of shinetsu thermal compound on the base of the heatsink means it's ready to go.

Thermolab BADA Heatsink Review
Nov 03, 2009 - Frosty No.2467
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

From the makers of the wavy BARAM heatsink comes the Thermolab BADA; a 136mm tall mid-tower heatsink that fills in the performance cooling void where taller coolers can't go.

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...

Zaward Gyre Flow Heatsink Review
Oct 25, 2009 - Frosty No.2460
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

The fins are pressed over three 8mm diameter copper heatpipes, but how exactly do the fins disperse heat conducted by the heatpipes?

Arctic Cooling Alpine 64 Pro AMD Heatsink Review
Oct 11, 2009 - Frosty No.2456
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

The Arctic Cooling Alpine 64 Pro is just such heatsink: ideal for mainstream CPUs that don't exceed 90W TDP.... so long as the fan speed stays at 2000RPM.

Category: Peripherals

Scythe Zipang 2 SCZP-2000 Heatsink Review
Sep 04, 2009 - Frosty No.2421
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

The Scythe Zipang 2 heatsink actually fulfills most of these criteria, essentially silently, thanks to a clever combination of a slow-speed 140mm diameter fan and large cooling surface area. It's not the coolest heatsink Frostytech has ever tested, but it did keep noise levels under 40dB and temperatures to a little over 25C ambient in our 150W synthetic test scenario.

DeepCool Killer Whale Premium Heatsink Review
Sep 02, 2009 - Frosty No.2431
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

The large top-down heatsink has a jaw dropping weight of 1,225grams, or 1.225kg. That's a lot of weight to hang from a CPU socket, so it goes without saying that rear motherboard support brackets are mandatory!

DeepCool Killer Whale Heatsink Review
Aug 30, 2009 - Frosty No.2430
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

DeepCool's Killer Whale heatsink is a top-down cooler built around two critical things. It has a hefty solid copper heat spreader (base) onto which six 6mm diameter heatpipes have been soldered, and a large and potentially very quiet 48mm thick 120mm PWM fan that spins at 1000-1800RPM.

DeepCool IceWing 5 Pro Heatsink Review
Aug 26, 2009 - Frosty No.2429
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

The IceWing 5 Pro heatsink is compatible with Intel socket 775/1366 and AMD socket 939-to-AM3 processors. It features five 6mm diameter copper heatpipes, stands 131mm tall and weighs roughly 670 grams.

Scythe Big Shuriken SCBSK-1000 Heatsink Review
Aug 23, 2009 - Frosty No.2425
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

The Scythe Big Shuriken is actually a really small heatsink, well not so much tiny as low profile. From the CPU to the top of the fan, the Big Shuriken measures a scant 57mm tall. That's not a whole lot of space to cram in a heatsink, but somehow Scythe have packed in four 6mm diameter heatpipes, 60 or 70 razor thin aluminum fins and a 120mm fan.

Kingwin XT-1264 Heatsink Review
Aug 13, 2009 - Frosty No.2420
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Kingwin's XT-1264 is the first tower-style heatsink to pass through the Frostytech test labs which incorporates asymmetrical U-shaped heatpipes. In other words the heatpipes are not even, rather one length of each vertical heatpipe is 30mm shorter than the opposite.

3RSystem Iceage 80 Prima Mini Heatsink Review
Aug 11, 2009 - Frosty No.2417
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

3Rsystem's Iceage 80 Prima Mini is a compact CPU cooler that stands just 104mm tall. It's ideally suited towards compact PC systems, slim cases, or simply as a low noise cooling solution for energy efficient sub-85W processors.

Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus Socket 1156 Heatsink Review
Aug 09, 2009 - Frosty No.2419

3RSystem Iceage 90 Heatsink Review
Aug 07, 2009 - Frosty No.2416
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

3Rsystem's Iceage 90 heatsink is a mid-compact heatsink stands just 115mm tall, instead of 165mm, making it suitable for PC chassis that can't accommodate much.

Xigmatek Thors Hammer S126384 Stacked Heatpipe Heatsink Review
Aug 03, 2009 - Frosty No.2415
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Standing 157mm tall, the Xigmatek Thors Hammer heatsink tips the scales at 800 grams and has a rather boxy footprint of 120 x 116mm. It accomodates one or two 120mm fans that mount to the fins with special rubber vibration absorbing posts.

Coolermaster Hyper TX3 Heatsink Review
Jun 13, 2009 - Frosty No.2401
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks
