Coolermaster Gemin II M4 Heatsink Review
Jan 23, 2013 - Frosty No.2709
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Coolermaster Gemin II M4 heatsink measures just 61mm tall, from the base of its exposed copper heatpipes to the tippy tip of its translucent vaneaxial fan. How does manage to squeeze in a fan and enough cooling surface area in a package so thin?


Corsair Hydro H100 Liquid Cooling Heatsink Review
Jan 15, 2013 - Frosty No.2665
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Hydro H100 heatsink ships fully assembled, filled with a propylene glycol based coolant and plumbed. The waterblock is connected by 24cm of flexible FEP tubing to the heat exchanger which measures about 274x120x25mm in size. Two 120mm fans are included, these operate at 2600-1300RPM and create a fair bit of noise at full tilt.

Corsair Hydro H60 Watercooling System Review
Dec 31, 2012 - Frosty No.2705
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Corsair have updated the waterblock design and given the Hydro H60 a new compact profile which hides functional changes to the integrated pump and improves mounting bracket installation significantly. All of this is transparent to the end user though.


Silverstone Heligon HE02 Fanless Passive Heatsink Review
Nov 14, 2012 - Frosty No.2700
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Silverstone Heligon HE02 is being sold as a passive heatsink for sub-95W TDP processors, so today on Frostytech we'll put this big, boxy, silent heatsink through its passive paces. No fans will be used in the testing, just good old noise-less convection cooling.


AMD FX-Series Liquid Cooling Heatsink Review
Nov 09, 2012 - Frosty No.2699
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


AMD's FX-Series Liquid Cooling Heatsink ships pre-filled and is no more difficult to install than a standard heatsink. The CPU cooler installs onto any AMD socket AM2/AM2+/AMD3/AM3+/FM1/FM2 processor using standard hardware, the liquid-to-air heat exchanger needs only a 120mm rear case fan cut out to hang from.

Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Oct 22, 2012 - Frosty No.2696
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Deepcool's Gammaxx 400 heatsink stands 162mm tall, putting in the class of full tower CPU coolers. At the heart of the 654 gram heatsink are four 6mm diameter copper heatpipes which are exposed at the base. The rest of the heatsink is a pretty standard rectangular aluminum fin stack, no fancy leading edges, shapes or punched out cooling fins.


Glacialtech Igloo 5761 Silent Heatsink Review
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.


Zalman CNPS14X Lower Noise Heatsink Review

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


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


The Deepcool Ice Wind Pro heatsink stands 157mm tall and 86mm deep - most tower coolers are more boxy in profile and this can make them interfere with tall memory modules on some motherboards.
