UPDATED! This is a review of the Silverstone Tundra TD03 self contained liquid cooling system. The Tundra TD03 consists of a waterblock with integrated copper base plate attached to a small 120mm heat exchanger via 310mm long white FEP tubing. Arctic's Liquid Freezer 120 ships fully assembled, plumbed and filled. The whole system weighs around 942grams and installs onto Intel socket LGA115x/2011(-3) processors and AMD. The Scythe Mugen 5 Rev B (SCMG-5100) heatsink is a lower-noise tower cooler standing 154mm tall and equipped with a single 120mm PWM fan. The Mugen 5 Rev B is constructed around six 6mm diameter nickel plated heatspipes which are swaged onto an array of raw aluminum cooling fins. The Gelid Tranquillo 4 is built around four 16mm diameter copper heatpipes, a stack of ~40 nickel plated aluminum fins and a very unremarkable 1600rpm, 
120mm PWM fan. The heatsink makes use of 'exposed heatpipe base' 
thermal design. Technically speaking, the Coolermaster Ergostand III supports laptops with footprints up to 15

Corsair has been the market leader in the AIO liquid cooling market for a number of years offering a really varied range of not only smaller coolers for small form factor builds, but also much larger 280mm and 360mm variants for those chasing best performance. Lots of manufacturers are packaging LEDs, and RGB functionality into their cooler, Corsair being no exception, but the new Corsair Hydro Series H100i adds to their product ”Platinum” which as with power supplies suggests an air of supremacy. Two versions are available – the 240mm H100i priced at £124.99, and 280mm at £139.99 but with slightly better compatibility. We decided to take a look at the H100i, so let’s see how it holds up in our testing.

Engineers from the University of Pennsylvania demonstrated aluminum oxide film that is only tens of nanometers thick and is 10,000 times as stiff as a solid plate of the same mass. According to a report from the university, a square centimeter of the nanocardboard, as the engineers termed it, weighs less than a thousandth of a gram.

"Swiftech's latest all-in-one liquid CPU cooler pushes RGB illumination to the extreme by pairing their IRIS ALED system with Mayhems Pastel Nanofluid Coolant, which comes with various dyes. Add in the all-copper design and you have a cooler that makes standard AIOs look silly."

"When it comes to M.2 solid state drives there are some out there that will run hot and possibly throttle. That means that the controller gets too hot and the performance degrades to keep temperatures in check. This could mean that a drive that is say rated for 1000 MB/s writes might only perform to half that capacity. This means transfers will talk longer and no one wants to wait around. Well ADATA has a nifty solution in their XPG Storm M.2 cooler, which is a M.2 heatsink with an integrated fan as well as RGB lighting. Let’s slap this thing on our M.2 drive and see if it can stop it from throttling!"

The Orcus 240 is also maintainable, with an inlet for topping up the coolant which really sets it apart from the competition but following similar current trends still comes complete with RGB fans, and RGB LEDs built into the CPU block. Priced at £89.99 you do seem to get quite a bit of bang for your buck, but it will be really interesting to see if these unique features actually aid in performance or functionality, or if there’s a reason Raijintek is the only manufacturer implementing them.

We saw the Cooler Master MasterCase SL600M at Computex 2018 and described it as ‘A lot more case than it appears’. The case admittedly exudes a certain designer chic thanks to its aluminium front and top panels but at first glance, you may think that Cooler Master has designed an oven, rather than an enclosure for a PC. The front of the case has zero in the way of intakes for cool air, however the SL600M is considerably more sophisticated than it appears and Cooler Master has this covered.
