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 Noctua's low profile NH-L9x65 heatsink stands just 64mm tall and has a very compact footprint of only 95x95mm. The NH-L9x65 is designed to cool some fairly intensive Intel sockets, along with the full spectrum of AMD processors and APUs. Compact CPU coolers can be a little tricky to install, but Noctua long ago laid down the framework of an excellent motherboard mounting system,, so the NH-L9x65 is a breeze to work with. 

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.

The Hydro H150i Pro RGB may be a great AIO liquid CPU cooler but because of its length it's just not for everyone. With the "shorter" Hydro H115i Pro RGB CORSAIR solves that issue for many people not only without sacrificing performance but also with reduced noise.

Sun: 03/18/2018Topic: CPU / Processors    PermaLink has just posted another review. Last week we have tested the Enermax T.B.RGB 120 mm fan.

Let's be honest, both some of the best heatsinks and fans are Noctua’s, especially when you are looking for low noise output. The problem is they have been very stuck on their brown and tan color scheme. The benefit is that when you see them you know exactly what it is and you know it is a quality product. They ignored the clear and glowing transparent fan fad that came and went but with cases and other hardware sticking with black they resisted changing to it. A few years ago they did bring out their Industrial PPC fans that were black but they were much more expensive and even though they are great fans a lot of people have looked other directions when swapping out their fans. Well a while back Noctua expanded their Chromax lineup with a new line of fans, new cables, and covers for most of their heatsinks that help give people color options for trim and finally fans and coolers that won’t stand out like a sore thumb while still giving people Noctua quality. I’ve had them in the office for a while and as I work on catching up I just recently got a chance to play with them when a build I put together just wasn’t going with the Noctua cooler that I put in it.

We might be late to the party, but we did finally get a Vega card into the office and I have been testing it and getting a feel for it. Like Ryzen, the Vega launch was hyped up over an extended period of time because AMD fans have been looking forward to being able to rejoin the high-end market. The RX580 is a good card but when you are looking to game at 1440 or 4k your options have just been the GTX 1070, GTX 1080, and recently the GTX 1080 Ti. Well AMD is back, they do have a few options up in the high-end range again. Of course, there has been a lot of drama as well, today I’m going to check out performance now that Vega has been out for a little while. Talk about the differences between the cards, and take a closer look at the RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled model that AMD sent over.

ARCTIC Cooling is a well-known name for CPU coolers. This is the Arctic Freezer 33 eSports One CPU cooler, a very modest looking 120mm CPU air cooler with a single fan. No RGB or any flamboyant design. But it does have its fan rings come in different colours you can choose from.

For our first CPU Cooler review this year we have another Noctua product. We are going to have a look at the Noctua NH-L12S, the successor to the award-winning NH-L12. The NH-L12S is a low profile cooler with a 120mm fan, up from the 92mm fan on the NH-L12, four heat pipes with Copper (base and heat-pipes), aluminium (cooling fins), and soldered joints & nickel plating. It’s aimed at the HTPC and Small Form Factor market, or even a Home Server if you need decent and quiet cooling.

This is the Noctua NH-L12S, a smaller and slimmer version of the NH-C14S. While it maintains that low-profile look, it isn’t as low profile as many ‘pancake coolers’ like the NH-L9x65. it is bundled with a 15mm fan where you can install it underneath or over the heatsink.

"Japanese cooling expert Scythe launches the 5th Generation of its legendary Ninja CPU Cooler Series. Scythe bundles the Ninja 5 with two Kaze Flex 120 PWM fans with the goal to offer a significantly more silent solution without compromising the high performance that users expect from the Ninja Series. This goal has been achieved by mounting the two fans using the Push/Push principle and setting the fan rotation limit to only 800 rpm. Outstanding RAM compatibility is assured even when used with LGA 2066 Mainboards with 8 RAM-Slots thanks to a new heatsink optimization. In addition to that, Ninja 5 is equipped with the third generation of the Hyper Precision Mounting System (H.P.M.S.) which further simplifies the installation procedure and supports all the major AMD™ and Intel™ sockets.

The new Ninja 5 is equipped with two fans of the high-quality Kaze Flex 120 PWM fan series, whereas the predecessor had only one fan. Delivering great performance at low noise levels is achieved by mounting the two fans in line, where the first one is pushing the air into the heatsink and the second one pulling it out. Both fans support the PWM function and can be controlled using the motherboard’s fan controller in the speed range from 300 to maximum 800 RPM. Thanks to this low fan speed range, virtually inaudible noise levels from 4 to 14,5 dBA are accomplished.

The Kaze Flex 120 PWM fan series features a long lifespan of 120.000 hours (MTTF) and really quiet running thanks to the high-quality Sealed Precision FDB. Shock absorbers made of rubber are located in the corners of the fans to prevent the transfer of any vibration.

The heatsink design of Ninja 5 has been tweaked in the development process. While the new all-black top fin-layer offers improved aesthetics, the shortened six fin-layers on the bottom of the stack are assuring great compatibility to RAM modules. Thanks to the gaps, which are implemented on two sides of the heatsink, Ninja 5 is able to offer outstanding compatibility to RAM modules with a total height of 55 mm. Fast heat transfer from the nickel-plated copper-base to the aluminum fins is achieved by utilizing total of 6 high quality copper Heatpipes, which are nickel plated as well.

Scythe equipped the Ninja 5 with the third generation of the Hyper Precision Mounting System (H.P.M.S) which combines a solid metal-backplate with a pre-installed mounting bar. The new mounting system omits some of steps, which had to be taken with the previous systems. Special rubber/plastic spacers are used to hold the backplate in place which significantly improves the usability. Further improvement of the installation process has been achieved by pre-installing the mounting bar. Uneven pressure and weight distribution is prevented by the spring-loaded screws, which are located in the mounting bar.

The socket compatibility list features the Intel™ Sockets LGA775, LGA1150, LGA1155, LGA1156, LGA1366, LGA2011, 2011-v3, LGA2066 and AMD™ Sockets AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, FM2, FM2+ as well as AM4. All mounting clips, one screwdriver, two Kaze Flex 120 PWM fans with clips, thermal grease, the user manual and one PWM-Y adapter are supplied with the Ninja 5 CPU Cooler. Scythe Ninja 5 (Model No. SCNJ-5000) CPU Cooler is available as of today. Suggested retail price is set at 45,00 EUR (excl. Taxes). "

This is the Raijintek LETO Pro RGB tower-type CPU cooler, which is bundled with 2x 120mm sleeve bearing fan which has RGB led rings around it. Practically everybody jumped inside the RGB rabbit hole (resistance is futile) but it is nice to see Raijintek providing the white LED version of the cooler as well.

"Besides RGB LED strips the next big that you want to get to add some flash to your system is RGB LED fans. Corsair was one of the first to come out with RGB LED fans and currently they have four different RGB fan models to choose from. Today we will be checking out their HD120 RGB LED fans, which are designed as high static pressure fans with 12 independent RGB LEDs, 7 unique lighting modes, and a clear frame the really allows the LEDs to shine through your system. Corsair sent us the 3-pack kit with controller (CO-9050067-WW), so we have everything we need to get these fans installed and setup. Are these the perfect RGB fans for your next build? Read on and find out!"

Cooler Master’s new MA620P is a big, dual-tower air cooler that ships with two MF120R RGB fans. It is available in two models – the MA620P we have here, or the MA612P which is exclusively for Threadripper CPUs. At £74.99 in the UK, it’s certainly not cheap for an air cooler but can the MA620P prove that it is good value for money? Let’s find out.

„Maximising colour choices, Noctua’s chromax line gives users the option to colour-customise their fans and CPU coolers in order to create PC builds with specific, focused aesthetics. It ranges from chromax editions of the signature NF-A15, NF-A14, NF-F12 and NF-S12A fans over add-on heatsink covers for popular coolers such as the NH-D15(S) and NH-U12S to coloured cables, anti-vibration pads and anti-vibration mounts.“

"By using Asetek’s Gen6 design, a reworked LED lighting system and the highly-awarded ML fans, H115i PRO RGB does succeed to drive stock and overclocked systems, while maintaining considerably lower noise levels than before! The cooler can also function in Zero RPM mode, as we have seen with several newer video cards and is controlled by LINK, from where we can adjust the speed of each fan, choose from one of the three pump operating modes, but also work with the LED lighting system options."
