Oct 19, 2012 - Frosty No.2695
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Igloo 5761 Silent heatsink uses a familiar top-down-fan approach, with three 6mm diameter exposed base heatpipes conducting heat from the CPU to a small thin aluminum fin cooling stack. The cooling fins are topped off by a bright yellow 92x92x25mm PWM vaneaxial fan.

Glacialtech Igloo Pad Series R15 Laptop Cooling Pad Review
Sep 27, 2012 - Frosty No.2691

Laptop cooling pads are simple things, usually no more than an elevated surface on which to rest your notebook, with one or two quiet fans that direct a constant stream of cool air towards its base.


Silverstone Heligon HE01 Twin Tower Heatsink Review
Sep 13, 2012 - Frosty No.2689
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The PWM fan itself is non-standard, in that it's 38mm thick rather than 25mm and rotates at 800-2000RPM or 800-1200RPM depending on a small physical switch set into the frame. The Silverstone SST-FHP141-H fan is rated to move upwards of 48-171CFM air

DeepCool Ice Wind Pro Heatsink Review
Apr 28, 2012 - Frosty No.2661
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Apr 18, 2012 - Frosty No.2652
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The NZXT Havik 120 heatsink ships with two 120mm FZ fans that attach to either side of the heatsink fin tower. Users can get by with only one fan if they so desire, but as the impeller speed is 1500RPM it's best to use both fans.

Apr 17, 2012 - Frosty No.2650
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Top down cooling has its advantages, though tower cooling is usually the preferred method given its compact footprint. In this review Frostytech will be testing out a heatsink from Titan that aims to satisfy both tower and top-top heatsink designs, in one.

Mar 05, 2012 - Frosty No.2645
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The heatsink is constructed from a simple aluminum extrusion and is compatible with socket 754/939/940/AM2/AM3/FM1 AMD processors. Intel processors are not supported at all. Because it lacks any copper, weight is a modest 430 grams. The PWM compliant 95mm fan can be adjusted from 2000RPM to 600RPM as thermal needs change.

Feb 21, 2012 - Frosty No.2644
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Gelid GX-7 Stacked Heatpipe Heatsink Review
Nov 16, 2011 - Frosty No.2624
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The GX-7 heatsink is constructed around seven 6mm diameter heatpipes, but the number of heatpipes isn't what caught our attention. What's unique about the GX-7 cooler are the two heatpipes stacked on top of the five primary heatpipes.
