"The Coolermaster Hyper D92 is a moderately sized CPU cooler which stands 147mm tall and weighs 636 grams. The Hyper D92 ships with not a 120mm... or even 140mm fan, but rather a pair of 92mm fans that spin at 2800-800RPM. The fans move upwards of 15-55CFM according to manufacturer specs. Small 92mm fans may seem terribly risky, but Coolermaster have a trick up their sleeves."

Arctic Cooling Freezer A30 Heatsink Review
Mar 20, 2012 - Frosty No.2646
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Built on a foundation of four 8mm diameter copper heatpipes which are exposed at the base, the heatpipes extend up in a nearly straight line through 115mm worth of stacked aluminum fins. AMD only.


Arctic Cooling Alpine 64 Plus Heatsink Review
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.


Coolermaster Hyper 612 PWM Heatsink Review
Feb 21, 2012 - Frosty No.2644
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Coolermaster Hyper 612 PWM heatsink stands 163mm tall and weighs a pretty hefty 806 grams. The cooler is compatible with Intel socket 775/1155/1156 and LGA1366 processors, but crucially not LGA2011 Sandy Bridge-E CPUs. AMD socket AM2/AM3/FM1 processors are supported.


Glacialtech Igloo 5620 PWM Heatsink Review
Feb 20, 2012 - Frosty No.2643
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


While the Igloo 5620 PWM heatsink ships with one 92mm fan capable of operating at 2300-800RPM, additional fan clips are supplied for a second user-supplied 92mm fan to be installed if desired. The base of the heatsink makes use of exposed heatpipes to leverage the rapid heat conduction qualities of these thermal devices.


Glacialtech Igloo H58 Heatsink Review
Jan 22, 2012 - Frosty No.2639
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Glacialtech's Igloo H58 heatsink is a tower style exposed heatpipe base CPU cooler that marks one of the best efforts by this Taiwan-based thermal solutions manufacturer.


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.


DeepCool IceEdge 400XT Heatsink Review
Nov 13, 2011 - Frosty No.2621
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Deepcool's IceEdge 400XT heatsink is a mid-size tower cooler that stands a modest 127mm high and weighs 585 grams. At its heart are four, 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and a 92x100mm stack of dark nickel plated aluminum fins.


Glacialtech Igloo H46 Heatsink Review
Nov 11, 2011 - Frosty No.2629
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


On the test bench today is Glacialtech's Igloo H46 heatsink - a tower style exposed heatpipe base CPU cooler that marks one of the best efforts for this Taiwanese thermal solutions manufacturer to date. The heatsink cools very well on both Intel and AMD platforms, as you'll shortly see.


Scythe Kozuti SCKZT-1000 1.5U Low Profile Heatsink Review
Nov 09, 2011 - Frosty No.2614
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Scythe Kozuti SCKZT-1000 is a really compact low profile heatsink that conforms to the 1.5U standard and measures just 40mm from tip to toe! That's not a lot of space in which to cram a heatsink capable of handling 150W heat loads... but Scythe manage it.


SilenX EFZ-92HA3 Compact Tower Heatsink Review
Nov 06, 2011 - Frosty No.2619
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Effizio Series EFZ-92HA3 heatsink is a SilenX product. The SilenX EFZ-92HA3 is a compact heatsink that's ideal for Media PCs powered by sub-85W TDP processors. It's built around two 6mm diameter copper heatpipes which are exposed at the base.


Auras Shagon AHC-118 Lower Noise Heatsink Review
Nov 04, 2011 - Frosty No.2615
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


In this review Frostytech is testing Auras' lower noise Shagon AHC-118 tower heatsink. This CPU cooler stands 178mm tall, with a footprint of 135mm x 119mm. Weighing in at 951grams, this is one big heatsink.


Zalman CNPS11X Extreme Heatsink Review
Oct 29, 2011 - Frosty No.2617
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Zalman CNPS11X Extreme is equipped with one 120mm PWM fan that rotates at 1000-1950RPM and moves air through a pair of thin aluminum fin towers set at 80-degress to each other. Five 6mm diameter composite wick heatpipes conduct heat from the copper base plate to the twin 100mm fin stacks.


Zalman CNPS12X Lower Noise Heatsink Review
Oct 25, 2011 - Frosty No.2620
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Zalman CNPS12X heatsink marks the first forray into exposed heatpipe coolers for its Korean manufacturer. For what I can only assume are trademark reasons, Zalman term it whole direct touch heatpipe.


Hanjung Grip100-S and Grip110-U2 Notebook Cooling Pads Review
Oct 24, 2011 - Frosty No.2618
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


For desktop replacement laptops, a little extra cooling can do wonders to keep a notebooks' internal cooling fan from spinning up to vacuum cleaner noise levels constantly. It doesn't hurt that notebook cooling pads also angle a notebook somewhat towards you so it's easier to type on as well.


Fostering Better Heatsinks - Does Zalman really use Composite Heatpipes?
Oct 23, 2011 - Frosty No.2616
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Heatpipes are among THE most important components of a modern heatsink, but not all heatpipes are created equal. Different wick structures affect heatpipe performance and if your heatsink has cheap heatpipes, the rest of the heatsink suffers. The problem is consumers can't see what's inside, you simply have to trust what the manufacturer says is true...


Xigmatek Prime SD1484 Heatsink Review
Oct 21, 2011 - Frosty No.2613
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


On the heatsink test bench today is Xigmatek's Prime SD1484 heatsink which features a few notable changes to the standard, stock tower heatsink Xigmatek offers. For starters, the edges of the aluminum fins are squished slightly to form a blunt knife edge to reduce air flow resistance - Gigabyte tried this in 2006 with good results.


NZXT Havik 140 Heatsink Review
Oct 19, 2011 - Frosty No.2612
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


In this review Frostytech is testing out the NZXT Havik 140 heatsink, a tower style CPU cooler designed for Intel socket 1366/1156/1155/775 and AMD socket AM2/AM3/AM3+/FM1 processors. The Havik 140 cooler performs pretty well as you'll shortly see.


Thermaltake FrioOCK Heatsink Review
Oct 16, 2011 - Frosty No.2611
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The cooler weighs over a kilogram (1093grams) and comes with two 130mm fans arranged in a push-pull configuation that scale from 2100-to-1200RPM. Behind all the unncessary fan shroud is an aluminum fin tower split down the middle.


Ultra Products U12-40659 Carbon X4 Fan Power Cable Mod / Fix
Sep 17, 2011 - Frosty No.2608
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


This is a super quick how-to guide from Frostytech on modding the Ultra Products U12-40659 Carbon X4 multisocket VGA cooler fan power cable so it can be connected to a normal sized 3-pin fan header common to most videocards and motherboards.


Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 Pro Heatsink Review
Sep 15, 2011 - Frosty No.2607
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Freezer 13 Pro looks like a big step up from the previous model, but according to Frostytech's heatsink reference charts it works out to a ~3°C drop in temperature at full fan speed. Noise output is maintained at a reasonably quiet level, in part because the 120mm PWM fan utilizes fluid dynamic bearings, but mostly because the fan rotates at a slow speed.


Spire Gemini SP986B1-V2-2P Heatsink Review
Sep 08, 2011 - Frosty No.2606
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Spire's Gemini SP986B1-V2-2P heatsink is a minor variation on the popular Eclipse II tower heatsink design, the most notable difference being a novel bifurcated fin stack. To 'bifurcate' means to split into two... so in other words, the fin stack is split down the middle and the fin edges are closed off so air can only pass through the heatsink from front-to-back.


Thermaltake Jing Heatsink Review
Aug 02, 2011 - Frosty No.2597
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Weighing a hefty 920 grams, the Thermaltake Jing stands 161mm tall and installs onto Intel socket 775/1155/1156/1366 and AMD socket AM2/AM3+ processors.


Xigmatek Gaia SD1283 Heatsink Review
Jul 04, 2011 - Frosty No.2595
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Forged in the mountains by a one-eye'd master heatsink maker who learned the trade before the dawn of the first X86 integrated circuit, the Xigmatek SD1283 Gaia heatsink is... is... ...yet another tower heatsink built around the direct touch heatpipe technique.


Thermolab Trinity Heatsink Review
Jul 03, 2011 - Frosty No.2600
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Four 6mm diameter sintered metal wick exposed base heatpipes form the backbone of this CPU cooler while a simple bracket system allows it to install onto Intel socket 775/1155/1156/1366 and AMD socket AM2/AM3/FM1 processors.


Auras Shagon ARC-118 Heatsink Review
Jun 08, 2011 - Frosty No.2598
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


While the small size of the Shagon ARC-118 heatsink might make it better suited to processors with a TDP of less than 95W, no thermal limits are noted. As you'll see in Frostytech's test results, this little cooler can handle heat loads of 150W without difficulty, but is much better suited to 95W TDP environments.


Evercool Transformer 3 Heatsink Review
May 31, 2011 - Frosty No.2596
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Weighing in at 630 grams, Evercool's Transformer 3 heatsink is compatible with socket 775/1155/1156/1366 Intel CPUs and socket 754/939/940/AM2/AM3 AMD processors. As with so many other heatsinks, the Evercool Transformer 3 features three exposed 6mm diameter heatpipes at the base.


Xigmatek Loki SD963 Mid-Compact Heatsink Review
Apr 30, 2011 - Frosty No.2592
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


If you take a heatsink like the Xigmatek Loki SD963 heatsink in hand and flip it over, what you'll see is an aluminum base with three deep channels cut into it.


Zalman CNPS5X-SZ Heatsink Review
Feb 12, 2011 - Frosty No.2585
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Like its forefather, the CNPS5X-SZ fills the role of a lower profile, light weight cooler that's ideally suited to sub-95W TDP processors. It's stacked aluminum fins are connected by three 6mm diameter copper heatpipes to a small aluminum base block with a thin bit of copper covering the otherwise exposed heatpipes. A single 90mm PWM fan spins at 2800-1400RPM to cool this modified tower heatsink.
