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.

Apr 27, 2012 - Frosty No.2657
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

When it comes to low profile heatsinks for miniPC/HTPC/MiniITX/bookPCs there aren't many options. With an eye towards the under populated low profile cooling segment, Zalman released the CNPS8900 Extreme; a 60mm tall, 121mm diameter low profile cooler built for compact cooling situations.

Coolermaster's Hyper 212 Evo heatsink stands 160mm tall, weighs in at moderate 569 grams and packs in four exposed 6mm diameter copper heatpipes on its base.

NZXT Havik 120 Heatsink Review
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.

Arctic Cooling Freezer A30 Heatsink Review
Mar 20, 2012 - Frosty No.2646

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

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.

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.
