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. 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

Pure Base 600 was released at the beginning of the year and focusses on the essentials in computer case engineering. Fast forward to March 2017 and we have a slightly modified version named “Window” which carries a tempered glass panel. Inside, be quiet! has equipped this case to house high-performance hardware; including a plethora of locations for different sized water cooling kit.

Thermaltake decided to jump on the RGB wagon by taking their very successful Water 3.0 Ultimate AIO liquid CPU cooler and replacing its regular high-speed fans with their ultra-low noise Riing RGB ones. The result may not produce the exact same cooling efficiency numbers but it looks great and is almost whisper quiet even at load.

"We have seen TEC/Peltier products in the past, and even reviewed them in years gone by; but implementing this kind of cooling technology in a consumer CPU cooler has obviously not resulted in a shift in the cooler market to this point. Closed-loop liquid CPU coolers have become commonplace, standard air cooling is better (and increasingly less noisy) than ever, and in general the need for TEC coolers just has not been felt for consumer CPU cooling.

www.frostytech.com

I think what Phononic has done with the HEX 2.0 is show the advantage of a TEC in a demanding small form-factor implementation, where liquid coolers will not always fit. A great example of this is a case I have in for review currently: the Lian Li PC-Q17. The only way to install a liquid solution like the Corsair H75 (which I used as a liquid cooler comparison in benchmarks) in the PC-Q17 is to mount it outside of the enclosure, just as with the In Win 901 mini-ITX enclosure I reviewed (way back in 2014).

In enclosures like these a small solution is required for a streamlined build, and the HEX 2.0 is a great liquid alternative here."

The Swiftech MCP655 is perhaps the most well-known retail option of the Laing D5 pump and is Swiftech's attempt at bringing to market a pump that is proven to be reliable, quiet, and high performing. The additional touches provided by Swiftech include a vibration dampening mounting kit and an acrylic top promising good performance and aesthetics alike.

Hot on the heels of our Cryorig H7 review we are looking today at the R1 Ultimate. A monster of an air cooler, the R1 Ultimate features twin 140mm fans, along with 7 copper heatpipes, while it measures nearly 170mm tall. If you want the best performance without buying a liquid cooler, could this be the answer?

Scythe is looking to slice through the competition like a samurai on horseback with the Kabuto 3. Utilizing a top-flow design that's more compact than similar offerings, it delivers excellent noise levels paired with a good price/performance ratio.

Ryzen 7 has already proven to be a worthy contender for Intel’s LGA 2011-3 set of processors thanks to its similar, or sometimes better, performance levels and significantly cheaper cost. That metric is stretched even further with the 8C16T Ryzen 7 1700 that ships at just £330. At a relative bargain price compared to the higher-end Ryzen 7 SKUs, never mind Intel’s £1000 octa-core part, Ryzen 7 1700 operates at a reduced clock speed out-of-the-box and is given a 65W TDP rating. You also get a decent Wraith Spire CPU cooler thrown into the bundle.

Thermalright is a company that has been around for more than a decade, and they’ve been dedicated to making high quality performance cooling products for the enthusiast. While we haven’t had a chance to review a Thermalright product in several years, we’re happy to have another one on the bench to check out. Today we’re going to take a look at a variation of the TRUE Spirit series. What makes the TRUE Spirit 140 Direct unique over the others in its series is the fact that it utilizes direct touch heatpipes – five 6mm heatpipes to be exact...

Now also with AMD AM4 B350 and X370 motherboards for AMD Ryzen, Intel LGA1151 Z270, H270 and B250 for Kaby Lake, Intel LGA2011-3 X99 for Broadwell-E motherboards and many new CPU coolers ! Since the year 1999 OCinside.de is testing coolers and motherboards and followed the question, which CPU cooler can be used for which motherboard. With this interactive fit for fan guide one can find out exactly this with a few clicks, by moving the desired CPU cooler virtually on the selected motherboard. You can not only see if CPU cooler fits on the motherboard and how much space is left for the remaining components, but also listen to the fan sound, check the current price and read a review.

"The liquid state allows the metal – eutectic GaIn alloy – to deform with the surrounding rubber at room temperature. The important characteristics are: <100kPa stiffness, 9.8W/mK conductivity, 6x extension capability, electrical insulation" reports electronicsweekly.com

www.frostytech.com
The research paper behind 'Thubber', High thermal conductivity in soft elastomers with elongated liquid metal inclusions mentions the following salient point: "...heat transport within soft materials is limited by the dynamics of phonon transport, which results in a trade-off between thermal conductivity and compliance. We overcome this by engineering an elastomer composite embedded with elongated inclusions of liquid metal (LM) that function as thermally conductive pathways. These composites exhibit an extraordinary combination of low stiffness (<100 kPa), high strain limit (>600%), and metal-like thermal conductivity (up to 9.8 W·m-1·K-1) that far exceeds any other soft materials."
