See all Noctua heatsink reviews available [X]
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.

Small form factors are becoming more and more popular: each motherboard and enclosure brand have several offerings in their lineups and their range is constantly expanding. The time when small was linked to limited power is long gone! These mini PCs can pack some serious punch and are capable to even outperform a full desktop offering, hence why gamers are also jumping on the small form factor wagon as it combines performance with ease of transportation. There are some drawbacks on several aspects alike the amount of possible storage, graphics card compatibility and possible cooling options. Today we are going to tackle the latter and will test three coolers specifically designed to be compatible for this popular factor. We will put head to head the Corsair AIO H5 SF, the tiny Noctua NH L9x65 and the Cryorig M9i tower cooling solution."

Our spring into summer CPU cooler reviews continue with the Noctua NH-U14S CPU Cooler, the big brother to NH-U12S we reviewed previously. The NH-U14S is the bigger, badder (a good bad if there is such a thing) and down right better CPU cooler than the NH-U12S, at least it should be. We are going to put it through the ringer to find out!

Closed-loop liquid CPU coolers have become extraordinarily popular due to the maintenance-free construction, rudimentary installation and extremely low probability of leaks occurring. As a result, many enthusiasts have switched from air cooling and prefer the cleaner aesthetic. However, these affordable units include relatively weak pumps which have the potential to fail after a few years of strenuous operation. Currently, Asetek has a stranglehold on the closed-loop liquid cooling market and threaten litigation against any companies infringing their patents. In basic terms, this means almost every sealed liquid cooling product is manufactured by Asetek and adopts a similar design philosophy. While some of these can look attractive like the Corsair H110i GT, many opt for uninspired aesthetics and earlier models even used ghastly FEP tubing. Saying that, there are a few exceptions such as the EK Predator 240 and Swiftech H240-X2 which offer expandability by compiling premium water cooling components together in a simple package.

Gelid Solutions has released it's Tranquillo rev.4 Heatsink. This is a 154mm tall tower cooler featuring an exposed heatpipe base.

"Like the original design the Rev. 4 Tranquillo uses 4 power heat pipes and a unique heat pipe constellation but also comes with a number of new technologies implemented to achieve higher cooling performance. The Rev. 4 Tranquillo features the Heatpipe Direct Touch Technology, a direct thermal connection between CPU core and heat pipes. The new heatsink is also improved with the Unique Heatsink Shape Technology, the result of precise software simulations and calculations which makes the air flow resistance of the new heatsink much lower. The Stacked Soldered Heatpipe and Fin Technology provides the best quality of soldered joints between heatpipe to fins and ensures the most efficient heat transfer inside the new heatsink. An improved 120mm fan with the intelligent GELID PWM (Pulse Width Module) control compliments the heatsink. The new Double Layer Blade technology is applied to distribute air flow efficiently at low speed. The redesigned PWM IC eliminates any clicking noise. The intelligent GELID PWM curve operates the fan in speed range from 750 RPM to 1600 RPM, it constantly keeps the fan silent but accelerates speed whenever additional cooling is needed. With the 2 sets of fan mounts, a second fan can be installed to improve the cooler performance even further. "

"Smoothly spreading the thermal paste takes time and effort to get exact, however, so the fact that our testing shows a simple X shape performing even better is absolutely great news. Not only is it a much simplier application technique, it is also much easier to keep consistent. And for those that are wondering, it works just as well on larger CPUs like the Intel socket 2011 CPUs. The thickness of the line just needs to be very slightly increased, and the X shape should be extended to cover the entire face of the CPU."

Liquid Series from PC Specialist is a new range of PCs that employ a custom loop liquid cooling system to deliver maximum performance along with stunning visual appeal. The LS-M02 we have for review is an example of the way Liquid Series works and uses a mainstream gaming specification with a price that comes in just under £2,000. If you decide to configure your own PC you have the choice of Z170/Skylake or X99/Haswell-E hardware (Intel only, no AMD) and can select from a choice of 16 cases, four different cooling systems, as many as three graphics cards and a huge number of other options. The permutations are almost limitless so it makes a good deal of sense to select a pre-configured PC such as LS-M02.

Cooler Master has just announced their new MasterLiquid series of 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 did both improve the cooling performance, but also dramatically extended the product’s functional lifetime. In this preview article, Benchmark Reviews covers some of the finer points that separate the MasterLiquid cooler series from everything else on the market.

"The industrialPPC 140mm fans are very well built and can be used for both industrial and PC chassis applications; the 24V versions are ideal as case fans because they produce little to no noise at half the voltage they receive inside a computer chassis, but if you are also planning on replacing the fans on the water cooling radiators, you have to get the 12V models. The 12V industrialPPC 140mm PWM fans will be ran at higher speeds in order to cool the radiator fins properly, while keeping the noise levels as low as possible thanks to the integrated technologies."

"With the Le Grand Macho RT we offer an actively cooled version of our famous semi-passive flagship. Thanks to the silent-running TY 147 B with fluid dynamic bearing, the Le Grand Macho RT can cool up to 280 watt.

The design of the heat sink has not been changed and is still asymmetrical. This offers the highest possible compatibility to the most recent motherboards. Thus it is guaranteed that the Le Grand Macho RT neither blocks the RAM spaces, nor the top-most PCIe slot on current ATX-boards.

Visually, the Le Grand Macho RT is top of the line. The heatsink shines in silver nickel plating and features a black anodized top fin, combined with the black and white fan.

Also available in stores now are the TY 127 – for users who want to install a second fan on their cooler – as well as the TY 141SV, a slightly upgraded version of the TY 141. Both fans make use of side vents, just like the TY 147 B, in order to reduce the noise of the fan even further. At 14 – 21 dB(A) the TY 141 SV is even more silent than its predecessor.

For fans of retro coolers the original HR-02 is now available again. The cooler, which has been introduced in 2010 for the first time, was the inspiration for our Macho cooler and is still one of the most powerful coolers of its kind. The cooler comes with the VX-II bolt-through kit included, which can be used to mount the HR-02 on all current Intel- and AMD-CPUs. Our screwdriver and the Chill Factor III thermal compound are included as well.

All coolers are now available in stores. The MSRP of the Le Grand Macho RT is 69.99€, that of the TY 127 is 8.99€ and finally the MSRP for the TY 141SV is set at 15.99€. The HR-02 is available for 54.99€"
