BeQuiet's Shadow Rock Slim heatsink stands 159mm tall and has a footprint of 130x74mm so it will fit most motherboards where space between the memory slots and videocard is on the tight side. The Dark Rock 3 stands 159mm tall and weighs in at 976 grams. Built around six, 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and a large aluminum fin stack, the Dark Rock 3 is rated to heat loads up to 190W TDP. Bearing close resemblance to the Prolimatech Megahalems Frostytech tested a few years back, the Eclipse IV heatsink is a bifurcated-tower cooler from heatsink manufacturer 'X2 Products' a brand offshoot of Spire Corp. The Eclipse IV heatsink is rated to a maximum cooling capacity of 220W by its makers and at first glance has the gravitas to back that claim up.
Weighing 1,320 grams with both fans installed, Noctua's NH-D15 heatsink is big. It stands 162mm tall and has a footprint of 151x161mm so prospective buyers will want to measure their case clearances first. It's six heat pipes are soldered to the nickel plated copper base plate and aluminum cooling fins; overall the fit and finish is top notch. Standing just 69mm tall, the Raijintek Pallas CPU cooler is probably the largest low profile heatsink Frostytech as tested in recent memory.

Sun: 07/27/2014Topic: Power Supply    PermaLink
With the rather recent appearance of 80 Plus Titanium certified power supply units in the market (some of which rated up to 1500W) hardcore overclockers and enthusiasts alike have found yet another reason to reach deep down their pockets for a brand new and rather costly upgrade. For good or bad the ultra-high-end power supplies cost quite a bit and in the end are mostly suited for use with really power hungry systems so casual consumers have really almost no need for something like that. On the other hand 80 Plus Bronze and Silver power supplies are far more affordable, feature quality components, come in both low and high power outputs and offer very good performance levels. For the past 2 days one such solution has been lying on our test bench, the Pure Power L8 700W (L8-700W) PSU by be quiet!

Despite having received orders for tablet heat pipes, Taiwan-based cooling module makers are still not able to land orders from most smartphone vendors and are unlikely to do so until 2015, when demand for 4G LTE smartphones is expected to start picking up, according to sources from the cooling module makers.

As the popularity and availability of small form factor PC components continues to grow, more companies are coming out with new enclosures that support this expanding market. Today, we are taking a detailed look at Cooler Master’s latest entry into the mini-ITX arena; the Elite 110 case. It’s amazing just how powerful a PC can be built around one of the latest mini-ITX motherboards and how much hardware can be stuffed into a small cube. In addition to basic computing needs, the Elite 110 enclosure offers a great many expansion options, with support for overclocking, a high end graphics adapter, up to four HDD/SSDs, a full size ATX power supply, and even water-cooling; all inside a small ~10” cube!

The Noctua redux fans come in four sizes and five form factors – the NF-R8 redux, the NF-B9 redux, the NF-S12A redux, the NF-P14r redux and the NF-P14s redux. Each of the redux fans has an SSO bearing, and as we shall see, except for their colors they are identical to their non-redux predecessors. All of the redux fans come with 40 cm (8 inch) power cords.

Noctua are one of the best CPU cooler manufacturers around, their CPU coolers have pushed air cooling to new highs over the last few years and most importantly, their NH-D14 was and still is one of the best on the market. The rule generally goes that if something isn’t broken, it doesn’t need fixing, but the NH-D14 is getting a little older now and the competition from companies like be quiet! and Thermaltake (to name but a few) means that Noctua have to do something to stay relevant. The NH-D15 is based on the NH-D14 design, but brings with a it a few tweaks and improvements that Noctua hope will help them compete with many of the newer rival products. Noctua are a premium brand, and as a consequence, their products are often quite expensive. Price around £75 the NH-D15 costs about the same as most mid range AIO water coolers, many of which offer some pretty incredible performance figures in terms of CPU cooling and overall acoustic performance, so there is no doubt in my mind that the NH-D15 has got its work cut out. That being said, there may be a lot of benefits to water cooling, but the same is true of air cooling, not forgetting that fact that there are still those loyal to air cooling, or that are too afraid to dabble with liquid cooling. On top of all that, not all chassis have room for a radiator, so it will be very interesting indeed to see how the NH-D15 stacks up against its air and water cooled rivals, especially within such a premium price bracket.

The Noctua NH-D14 seems to be a tough act to follow when it comes to air cooling, but the new NH-D15 looks to tower over its well-received predecessor... in every possible way! We compare the performance of these mammoth air coolers to see how much more Noctua can improve a successful product with the NH-D15.

Today we are going to look at an exciting new cooler from Noctua – the NH-D15. Unfortunately to some technical issues, our review of this has been delayed for some time now. The Noctua NH-D15 slots in at the top of their range of coolers – above the critically acclaimed NH-D14 which we dubbed the ‘Austrian Sandwich’.

With the NH-D15, Noctua once again takes their place, leading our charts. This cooler offers unprecedented cooling performance that makes all-in-one liquid coolers seem weak, especially considering that it does so while remaining whisper quiet.

Noctua NH-U12S is a tower-type CPU air cooler with 158mm in height. The cooler is designed with 45nm fin depth to ensure that the cooler does not block any of the DIMM slots for installing memory kits- with or without tall heatspreaders. The height of the tower cooler is also designed in a way to ensure it fits in most cases. As usual, Noctua comes with its well-known SecuFirm2 mounts for Intel LGA 2011 and 115x sockets, along with AM3+, AM2+, FM1, FM2 and FM2+ AMD socket compatibility.

“Today’s high demanding games can cause serious heat issues with improperly cooled graphic cards, so what do we do when they start to overheat? Look into water cooling? Not if your graphics card uses a non-referenced PCB. The question is, what other options do we have in order to better cool the GPU and memory? Arctic has a solution with the Accelero Xtreme IV 280(X), which is an upgraded air cooling solution that cools the GPU and memory utilizing 5 heatpipes and a custom rear heatsink.”

The Enthoo Primo was Phantek's first entry into the case market, and the company is now throwing the line's smaller brother into the frey: the Luxe. It features the same look, an interesting feature set, and comes in either black or white, along with some nifty lighting element.

So if you like stylish memory kits with tall heatsinks, Thermaltake's NiC C5 has you covered.
