By doing away with the heatsink heatspreader, inconsistencies in the solder bond between heatpipes and copper base plate are omitted. The exposed heatpipe base approach also lightens things up, the 160mm tall SE-214X weighs a modest 740grams. In addition to the copper heatpipes there is the aforementioned vertical aluminum rod going down through the center 
of the fins. On the test bench today we have BeQuiet's Pure Rock heatsink - a 155mm tall tower cooler built around four 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and paired with one of BeQuiet's 'Pure Wings 2' low noise 120mm fans. The DeepCool Gamer Storm Lucifer heatsink 
is a fairly large CPU cooler, very much resembling a 
passive thermal solution on quick glance due to its boxy footprint 
and widely spaced aluminum fins. The heatsink isn't a passive cooler though, 
its single fan is very much required to keep the Lucifer from becoming like its name-sake. The Raijintek Tisis is a massive dual tower CPU cooler with twin fans, five big heatpipes and a kick-ass-and-take-names kind of look to it. The Tisis is a big boxy heatsink that stands upwards of 168mm tall, weighs 1050grams and ships with two lower RPM 140x150mm PWM fans that spin at 1000-600RPM. At first glance you probably won't notice that Reeven's Okeanos RC-1402 heatsink uses two slightly different fans - a 120mm vaneaxial fan on the front and a 140mm fan in between the two aluminum fin stacks.

There comes a time when you have to do something outrageous in order to advance yourself. The companies that are always in the forefront are continuously on this edge, pushing and striving for better products. As a consumer we might ask: Why in the world would they make this and who will buy it? Gigabyte has the answer to both of …

Noctua has responded to the siren call for a more compact CPU cooler with its NH-U9S heatsink. It claims this mid-size cooler has "100% RAM compatibility" and "100% compatibility with PCIe cards on miniITX" motherboards. That's relatively easy to accomplish by sticking to the Intel/AMD thermal design guidelines, but how much thermal performance is sacrificed? The NH-U9S heatsink stands 125mm tall and has a square footprint of 95x95mm. Weighing 618 grams, the heatsink is built around five 6mm diameter copper heatpipes which are soldered to the aluminum cooling fins as well as the copper base plate, in typical Noctua fashion.

With the Deep Silence 5 Rev B. Nanoxia have another case in their portfolio, which is optimized towards low noise levels. The Deep Silence 5 is one of the biggest models available from Nanoxia and the case is compatible with E-ATX motherboards and offers plenty of space inside for the management and installation of components. Since we have tested similar cases from other manufacturers we are curious to find out more about the DS5.

The Nebula is a cube case from Xigmatek with very small dimensions. It allows the installation of mini-ITX motherboards in combination with ATX power supplies. In addition there is enough space in order to create a small HTPC or file server. You could even build a staggering looking little office PC.

Just when we were starting to think that the Sugo series lost its Mini-ITX mojo, after the last couple of models moved to MicroATX, Silverstone has stepped forward with the itty bitty 11.5L SG13. The thirteenth Sugo isn't quite the smallest to date, but it may be the most capable. Its 11.5L body is said to be capable of housing a standard ATX power supply up to 150mm long, a 120/140mm radiator and a 10.5" dual-slot graphics card.

"Corsair has been selling all in one liquid coolers since these coolers first started hitting the market. In fact without them it’s possible this category would never have gotten off the ground. With such a broad line of AIO coolers keeping them busy, it’s been some time now since Corsair has made an addition to their 280mm category. Today we’re going to be taking a close look at the H110i GT. This dual 140mm unit boasts some fresh aesthetic designs as well as some really cool new technology. Follow along as we find out if this GT reboot is really a luxurious high performance cooler worthy of the GT moniker or just another AIO with a fancy looking name."

Placed in confined spaces, a compact cooler has to rise to the occasion. Although hopefully not too much as height restrictions also apply. This is why the C-type heatpipe design is popularly used for CPU coolers destined for small-form factor enclosures. This type of cooler has its own set of design issues it must overcome to be a viable solution, …

"An agreement between Kelvin Thermal Technologies and the University of Colorado was struck in order to develop a flexible and thin thermal management technologies. This research was also funded by the US Department of Defense under DARPA. This new device is an ultra-thin, flexible, thermal ground plane. The thermal ground plane is a flat heat-transfer device that can be mounted on electronic devices to replace aluminum, copper and graphite heatsinks. The device maintains comfortable temperature levels without the use of fans or other temperature control items."

Recently, Cooler Master used Nutella to as thermal compound to cool a CPU. I wouldn't try this at home, but the video is fun to watch! :-)

"Surprisingly, the Nutella kept Cooler Master's test processor running at a minimum temperature of 21ºC and a maximum of 50ºC for a while. However, like we say it's not worth trying this at home as the Nutella will eventually dry out and harm your CPU."

We’ve taken a look at a few Noctua CPU Coolers here at pcG in recent months, from the small but surprisingly adept Noctua NH-U9S with its single heatsink and tiny 92mm Noctua NF-A9 PWM fan, to the big a beastly Noctua NH-D15 with its massive twin towers and dual 140mm fans. But what would happen if Noctua crossbred them both? Why the Noctua NH-D9L of course! A CPU Cooler offering a similar tiny footprint to that of the NH-U9S, but with the dual tower features of its bigger brother the NH-D15. In fact it looks exactly like the NH-D15 when viewed from an appropriate distance, the only tell tale sign that it isn’t, is its single fan.

Today, we get a chance to review an Arctic branded cooler, the Accelero S3 Passive. As the name states, this cooler does not come with any fans, so it would be dead silent. Arctic overcomes forced air movement cooling by using a large heatsink surface and heatpipes to get heat away from the core. Clearly, something like this isn’t made for high end GPUs, but something in the mid-range area it is said to handle without a worry. I strapped the unit on the recently reviewed MSI GTX 960 Gaming, a solid mid-range performer, to see how it does. Read on for more details!

With the likes of the Silver Arrow SB-E, HR22, AXP 20,0 and Macho series of coolers, Thermalright has something for everyone when it comes to keeping their CPU cool. From heavyweight behemoths to low-profile, ITX friendly designs, customers have no shortage of selection. Such an exceptional range of products and a willingness to improve on already solid designs has helped keep Thermalright in the minds of do-it-yourself PC enthusiasts the world over. With that said, in today's review, I look at Thermalright's Silver Arrow ITX. Based on the already popular Silver Arrow, the ITX version utilizes a few less heatpipes and features a single fan along with a slight redesign of the two cooling towers.

"Performance was on par with similar sized (and price) coolers. The SE-204K is a nice jump beyond OEM cooling, but still a sizable notch below the larger dual tower coolers with 140mm fans, and that is no surprise. For daily use in a mild gaming rig, this cooler will be right at home. If you really overclock and frequently load your system, you may want to look at a larger capacity cooler.”

CPU Coolers come in various shapes and sizes but these variants are not all done purely for performance reasons. For instance, since memory manufacturers continue to use unnecessarily tall heat spreaders on their modules, CPU cooler makers have begun designing heatsinks to maximize compatibility. Phanteks, specifically with their latest PH-TC14S CPU cooler, incorporates two main design ideas to ensure it …
