The Noctua NH-D9DXi4-3U is a mid-sized heatsink designed specifically for lower noise cooling of Intel Xeon processors in 3U height computer/server chassis. It's compact stature makes it ideal for rack mounted computers in a recording studio, video editing suite, operations control center... The 920gram Scythe Fuma heatsink is constructed around six 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and a pair of aluminum fin stacks that measure 104x130x37mm (HxWxD) in size. The heatpipes are liberally soldered to a chunky nickel plated copper base plate, this plate helps to more evenly conduct heat away from hot-spot ridden multi-core CPUs. While Scythe doesn't overtly market its heatsinks as DeepCool's Maelstrom 240 is a self contained CPU liquid 
cooling system consists of a dual fan, 240mm wide aluminum heat 
exchanger and combination pump head / skived copper waterblock. With Frostytech's synthetic thermal test platforms applying up to a 200W heat load, only we can accurately rank how the Maelstrom 240 liquid cooler stacks up DeepCool's Gamer Storm Lucifer K2 heatsink is a revised version of the original Gamer Storm Lucifer heatsink, which Frostytech tested about a year back. The Lucifer K2 heatsink only differs in that it's not nickel plated and ships with a slim profile (20mm thick)120mm fan which makes the heatsink a little more accommodating on confined motherboards.

"The Noctua NH-D14 may have come out on top in this roundup, but all four of the coolers on test present their own argument for selection, given their various price-points (and all would receive my enthusiastic endorsement). The NH-D14 did have the advantage of being the only dual-fan option here (as mentioned above), and its price ($79.99 for this SE2011 version with PWM fans) ties it with the Le Grand Macho RT for most expensive cooler in the group. In sharp contrast, Cooler Master's $29 Hyper 212 EVO had a strong enough showing that on price alone it will remain at the top of the list for many buyers."

The Reeven Brontes RC-1001b is aimed at smaller sized builds, but despite acceptable cooling capability, compatibility issues make me question its worthiness.

Cooler Master recently announced their new MasterLiquid series of all-in-one liquid CPU coolers, built using a special “FlowOp” technology that analyzes how heat is absorbed and dissipated to construct a better cooling solution than the competition. The end result was a dual chamber design that improved the cooling performance, but also dramatically extended the product’s functional lifetime. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the Cooler Master MasterLiquid Pro 240 CPU cooler (MLY-D24M-A20MB-R1) to see how well it performs.

Typically, the better performing 240mm+ watercooling AIOs command a price premium. After all, in our 6 way round-up back in July, the coolers which claimed the top two spots both cost in excess of 100 pounds. However, Arctic are trying to change that with the Liquid Freezer 240, which costs just £75.95.

Today we review the Captain 240 EX from DeepCool's GamerStorm brand. This all-in-one liquid cooler support all current Intel and AMD CPU sockets, boasting improved heat dissipation compared to its non-EX predecessor thanks to an upgraded high-density water microchannel, tubing, and fans. It's new and improved, while still remaining affordable at around $100 USD or less.

How about a little less? You hardly hear this question when it comes to PC hardware, especially coolers. But with cramped conditions you need to adapt sometimes. Cryorig produces a cooler with the minimalistic name C7 for these situations. Cryorig is a relatively new company which has the mission to bring in some fresh air into the cooling segment with small, but unorthodox innovations. You can check some of their products out in our previous Cryorig reviews. In this test we want to show if the higher price compared to stock solutions is worth it and if the slender C7 can even hold up to bigger coolers.

"The MasterLiquid Pro 240 is an all-new design from Cooler Master, and it produced very good results. It did not beat the Corsair H100i GTX cooler, but it was much quieter in its performance mode thanks to some very quiet fans. As to value, the retail price for this new Cooler Master cooler is $119, putting in the same territory as the Corsair H100i GTX, which retails for $129 but can generally be found for the same ~$120 price."

„EK-XRES 100 SPC-60 MX PWM (incl. pump) is a value oriented water cooling pump reservoir combo. It has been designed to lower the production costs yet still offer great hydraulic performance at the best price.“

Although it doesn't share the same "punch" as its larger brother the Steropes the smaller size and lower noise levels make the Brontes low-profile CPU cooler by REEVEN a more suitable candidate for HTPC use.

Thermalright's Le Grand Macho RT is massive in size, weighing in at 1060g with the fan. Capable of being used passively, it offers users a near-silent operation and top-tier performance when paired with the TY-147B fan. The competition should take note as Thermalright looks to steal the air-cooling crown.

”Having looked at a pretty broad cross section of Corsair's Hydro Series line up over the past few years gives me an opportunity to see the growth and changes that Corsair has implemented to its All-in-One cooling solutions. As technology has progressed, so have the pump and control systems used to maximize the performance potential of Corsair's designs. The Hydro Series H115i does not re-invent the wheel, as it were, but what it does do is provide a cooling solution for even Intel's latest Extreme series processors like the Core i7 5960X. If you run the H115i without using Corsair's Link software tools, the cooler seems to run in the Balanced Mode. In this mode, you get a good balance of pump and fan speed to deliver results in the 73 °C range on a Core i7 5960X running at 3.5GHz. Cranking the clock speed up to 4.2GHz drives the temperatures up another 17 °C, putting the thermal results right in the 90 °C range under load. Not bad when you look at the load the H115i is discharging.”

Move over Asus GX700 and MSI Titan, there’s a new gaming laptop at the top of the tree and its name is Asus ROG GX800VH. The model code suggests that GX800 is an upgrade of GX700, however that is wide of the mark. GX800 has a similar appearance to GX700 but the hardware is all new, starting with a pair of Nvidia GTX 1080 GPUs in SLI. Yes, two 1080s in a laptop, driving a 4K display for maximum gaming pleasure.

Thu: 09/08/2016Topic: Cooling / Heatsinks    PermaLink has just posted another review. Last week we have taken a look at the Enermax D.F. Pressure 12 cm fan. This fan has been designed specifically for the use on CPU coolers and radiators and achieved already at low speed a significantly higher static pressure than a simple case fan. We’ve tested them on an AIO watercooler.

Launching in April and under its sub-brand ‘Gamer Storm,’ Deepcool launched a newly upgraded cooler series called the Captain EX. Under this all-in-one (AIO) series, you will find 120mm, 240mm, and 360mm variants, which feature several features, such as their patented SS Design (Separated Section), a steam punk appearance, visible liquid flow, and LED lighting. New features with these coolers include things like upgraded high-density water micro-channel, anti-explosion rubber, unique silent TF 120 double-blade fan, as well as tooling free installation solution. These features do sound promising, so hopefully they allow the cooler to perform well. The Captain EX series visually looks similar to the former Captain series, but Deepcool upgraded a few features. Read on to see how the Captain 240 EX performs!
