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
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

In this review Frostytech will be testing Coolermaster's Hyper 212 Plus tower heatsink - an exposed heatpipe base cooler that comes ready out of the box for socket 1156 Intel 'Lynnfield' P55 motherboards. Naturally, it supports Intel socket 775/1366/1156 and AMD 939/AM2/AM3 processors.

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

The Hyper TX3 heatsink weighs in at 470 grams, stands less than 140mm tall, and comes equipped with a low noise 92mm 800-2800RPM PWM fan that drives 17-54CFM according the manufacturer.

DeepCool Ice Blade Pro Heatsink Review
Jun 10, 2009 - Frosty No.2405
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

One or two 120mm fans can be mounted to either side of the DeepCool Ice Blade Pro, and rubber vibration absorbing posts are supplied along with extra fan clips. A single 120mm PWM fan that operates at 900-1500RPM is supplied.

Thermaltake ISGC-200 Heatsink Review
Jun 09, 2009 - Frosty No.2402
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

The ISGC-200 heatsink itself stands 140mm tall, weighs 470 grams and accommodates one 92mm PWM fan that spins at 600~1600 RPM. If I didn't know better I'd say the ISGC-200 was released for Intel's new socket 1156 formfactor processors.

GlacialTech UFO V51 Silent Heatsink Review
May 20, 2009 - Frosty No.2397
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

At it's core, Glacialtech have equipped the 136mm tall UFO V51 Silent heatsink with two 1600RPM fans surrounding a large aluminum fin array, and framed in by a plastic casing that acts like a shroud to duct air through it. The heatsink weighs 780grams and is compatible with both Intel socket 775, 1366 and the entire family of AMD socket 939/AM3 processors.

Scythe Kama Angle Heatsink Review
Apr 27, 2009 - Frosty No.2391
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Traditional parallel fin-to-fan relationships are thrown out the window and what we're left with is a chevron-shaped aluminum fin tower with the fan set at 45 degrees to the leading edge.

Coolermaster Hyper N520 Heatsink Review
Apr 25, 2009 - Frosty No.2390
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

This tower heatsink stands out because its two 92mm fans are arranged in an offset push-pull formation. There are a couple reasons for offsetting the fans by 20mm that we'll touch on momentarily.

Evercool Forumula 2 VC-RHE Videocard Heatsink Review
Apr 20, 2009 - Frosty No.2389
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

The Evercool VC-RHE Formula 2 weighs in at 232 grams, stands 35mm above the GPU (it will occupy one additional PCI slot worth of space) and uses a single 80mm fan to quietly keep a broad range of mainstream videocards running cool.

Sunbeam Core-Contact Freezer 92mm Heatsink Review
Mar 25, 2009 - Frosty No.2386
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

An additional mounting bracket is available for socket 1366/1156 Intel Core i7 processors. This will require you to remove the motherboard and install a metal backplate.

Titan Fenrir TTC-NK85TZ Heatsink Review
Mar 23, 2009 - Frosty No.2383
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Titan's TTC-NK85TZ Fenrir heatsink stands 156mm tall, is 124mm wide and accommodates one 120mm fan that spins at 800~2200 RPM. Weighing it at roughly 550grams, the TTC-NK85TZ Fenrir is compatible with both Intel socket 775, 1366 and the entire family of AMD socket 939 to AM2+ processors.

Thermaltake RamOrb Memory Heat Spreader Review
Mar 02, 2009 - Frosty No.2377
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

The Thermaltake RamOrb heat spreaders are sold individually, and each comes with four sheets of thermal interface material so it can conceivably be installed on two sticks of memory in its lifetime.

Akasa Blue Aurora AK-966BL Heatsink Review
Mar 02, 2009 - Frosty No.2358
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

The thermal design follows in the footsteps of models released by Xigmatek and others, but if you flip the Blue Aurora AK-966BL over you won't find exposed heatpipes.

Mar 01, 2009 - Frosty No.2376

Most notebooks have cooling vents on their bottom which are critical to drawing air into the computer to cool different components. The cooling pad ensures that a steady flow of fresh makes it into the notebook, in turn keeping temperatures in check.

Feb 28, 2009 - Frosty No.2346

Jan 26, 2009 - Frosty No.2363

Thermaltake's SpinQ heatsink is undeniably good looking. It stands 152mm tall and is made from nickel plated aluminum fins soldered over six copper heatpipes.

Zalman CNPS9900 LED Intel Core i7 Compatible Heatsink Review
Jan 25, 2009 - Frosty No.2362
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Like most Zalman heatsinks, the CNPS9900 LED is pretty unique. It is based on a double 'fan' design, but with its 120mm PWM fan floating between the two radial copper fins.

Thermaltake BigTyp 14Pro Heatsink Review
Jan 22, 2009 - Frosty No.2364
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

When it comes to high performance heatsinks there aren't a lot of models shorter than 135mm. Oh there are plenty of tower heatsinks with some of the lowest temperatures a PC enthusiast can hope for. Today, Frosty tests the Thermaltake BigTyp 14Pro.

Jan 13, 2009 - Frosty No.2357
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Jan 11, 2009 - Frosty No.2356

Coolage's Frozen Orb Z924 HDC heatsink makes use of the trendy heatpipe direct contact technique, except this time we're looking at a modified thermal design Coolage originally manufactured with a copper base plate.
