Arctic's Liquid Freezer 240 ships fully assembled, plumbed and filled. The whole system weighs around 1190grams and installs onto Intel socket LGA115x/2011(-3) processors and AMD socket AM2/AM3/FM1/FM2 CPUs. UPDATED! Silverstone's Tundra TD02 CPU liquid cooler offers up some refreshing design elements for the computer enthusiast looking to assemble a system that stands out from the crowd. In place of the standard black heat exchanger we find something vaguely reminiscent of a Mac, or a Star Wars set... 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.

For a while it was pretty quiet around the Arctic water coolers, but now the Swiss company is starting to conquer the PC cases of the water cooler fans again. Our detailed review on OCinside.de will show whether the Arctic Liquid Freezer II 280 AIO water cooler introduced today will be able to do this. This special AIO was not only developed for CPU cooling and so there were some surprises during the tests. Enjoy reading!

When Silverstone offered to send over their new Lucid LD03, we were immediately intrigued. In a market dominated by downsized versions of popular mid-tower cases and uninspiring cube cases, the Silverstone Lucid LD03 appeared to offer a fresh new take on the very idea of what an ITX case could be, with its asymmetrical glass panels, angular vents....

Silverstone's Lucid series has always focused on a unique material mix and elaborate design. The same holds true for the LD03, which aims to combine tinted tempered glass panels with support for large graphics cards and CPU coolers, in a compact ITX case.

The Scythe Fuma 2 is a compact dual-tower cooler that manages to deliver exceptional performance while also being nearly silent and fitting where other massive coolers cannot due to its 154.5 mm height. Truly like a ninja, the Fuma 2 is hiding in the shadows, poised to strike down its competition.

NH-D15 chromax.black
"Noctua today introduced the long awaited all-black versions of its award-winning NH-D15, NH-U12S and NH-L9i CPU coolers. Staying true to the successful formula of the original models, the new chromax.black versions with their black fans and black coated heatsinks combine the same signature quiet cooling performance with a sleek stealth look. The NH-D15 chromax.black and NH-U12S chromax.black will initially be exclusively available in a Linus Tech Tips limited edition that includes extra orange anti-vibration pads and custom fan stickers.

“Our customers have been asking us for all-black coolers for a long time, but we’re soldering the fins to the heatpipes in order to guarantee optimal performance over many years of usage and this production process is difficult to combine with coatings,” explains Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO). “It took a lot of time and engineering work to find an appropriate coating material and production process that gave us satisfactory thermal performance and consistent visual appearance. Now, we’re proud with the end result and confident that the new chromax.black coolers will meet the high standards Noctua users have come to expect.”

NH-L9i chromax.black

The new NH-D15 chromax.black, NH-U12S chromax.black and NH-L9i chromax.black are identical to the regular models except for the colour: Featuring black coated heatsinks, black fans with black anti-vibration-pads, black fan clips or fan screws and black mounting parts, they are literally black from head to toe. Thanks to thoroughgoing optimisations of the coating material and process, the chromax.black models provide the same, renowned quiet cooling performance as their regular, non-coated counterparts.

NH-U12S chromax.black

Teaming up with popular youtuber Linus Sebastian from Linus Tech Tips, the first 5000 pieces of NH-D15 chromax.black and NH-U12S chromax.black sold through Noctua’s official Amazon and eBay stores will be an exclusive Linus Tech Tips limited edition that includes extra orange anti-vibration pads and custom Linus Tech Tips fan stickers. The Linus Tech Tips limited editions have a strictly limited volume and will only be available via Noctua’s official Amazon and eBay stores while stock lasts. The non-limited versions of the NH-D15 chromax.black and NH-U12S chromax.black will start selling via Amazon as soon as the Linus Tech Tips limited editions are sold out and via other sales partners at the end of October.

“I've always had the deepest respect for Noctua’s unwavering dedication to ease-of-use, quality and performance… I’m just not a big fan of their original colour scheme”, says Linus Sebastian (CEO Linus Media Group). “So, with that in mind, I’m incredibly excited to be partnering with them to launch the chromax.black versions of some of their most legendary coolers. I know you’ll love them as much as I do!”

In addition to the three new chromax.black cooler models, Noctua also introduced the new NA-SAVP3 anti-vibration pads in black, blue, green, red, white and yellow. These pads are compatible with all NF-A15 line fans such as those pre-installed on the NH-D15 chromax.black, thereby enabling users to colour-customise their coolers for individual build cooler schemes. The NF-F12 fan on the NH-U12S chromax.black can be colour-customised using the existing NA-AVP1 pads. In addition, both models are compatible with the NA-HC1/NA-HC2 (NH-U12S) and NA-HC3/NA-HC4 (NH-D15) heatsink covers as well as chromax line NA-EC1 and NA-YC1 cables that allow for further visual customisation.

"In the world of small form factor or ITX air cooler you do not have a whole lot of options that provide sufficient cooling. Well Scythe wants to change that with their Big Shuriken 3. This is of course an update to the Big Shuriken 2, which has been out for quite a long time now. The update brings a beefier design, new fan, and better overall style. At only 69 mm tall the Big Shuriken 3 should be able to fit in even the tightest spaces. It even has a cut-out for memory compatibility, and features Scythe’s Flex 12 Slim fan. Is this the CPU cooler you need for your small form factor build? Read on as we find out!"

We add to our detailed coverage of CORSAIR's Hydro X series of custom watercooling products with their XD5 pump/reservoir combo unit. It uses the ever-reliable Xylem D5 PWM pump paired to a polished nylon reservoir and continues the trend of a user-friendly installation and rich feature set for the money.

With the likely release of 3rd Generation Threadripper just around the corner, here at KitGuru we thought it would be an ideal opportunity to look at some potential cooling solutions for the new socket TR4 CPUs. Cooler Master and AMD exclusively collaborated during the design of the Wraith Ripper, so it’s labelled as the official cooler for 2^nd generation Threadripper. With a rating of up to 250W TDP, it should be capable of keeping the HEDT Threadripper temperatures under control.

Today, we have a new high-end air cooler for review. The Deepcool Assassin III was first seen at CES 2019 and is marketed as the direct competitor to the Noctua NH-D15, which has been the best in class for what seems an eternity. Deepcool claim the Assassin III should perform better than the Noctua by at least 1°C in a typical case installation scenario at 200W TDP. This may sound like a big claim, but you must remember the NH-D15 was released way back in 2014, so we would hope thermal transfer technology has moved on since then.

SilentiumPC's Navis EVO ARGB 280 mm all-in-one liquid CPU cooler is a value-oriented offering with muted looks which spring to life when illuminated. Add in solid performance and a fairly pleasant noise profile and you have a recipe for success.

We test and review the DeepCool Assassin III, a heat pipe cooler that is showing very impressive results in both cooling performance and low acoustics. DeepCool even asked us to specifically compare with the NH-D15 from Noctua, is their confidence in this cooler warranted?

Since our initial review of the Corsair H100i RGB Platinum all-in-one liquid cooler, we have been looking at potential cooling solutions for the upcoming 3rd generation Threadripper release. As the H100i RGB Platinum officially supports socket TR4, it seems a good candidate to bring back for TR4 testing.

We are reviewing an AIO cooler from Swiftech: the H240 X3. It’s one of two variants of this new series (the bigger one is a 360 mm). Swiftech hopes to lower the cost of entry to the “liquid world” with its expandable AIO: the H240 X3. This cooler isn’t your ordinary AIO because, it gives you the option to expand it with other water-cooling components such as a GPU block.
