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

"The Carbide Air 740 is well built, offers a roomy interior for an easy (and tidy) build, and the high-airflow design translates into great thermal performance. So are there any drawbacks? Really, just two: first, a heavily vented design like this won't block noise from louder components, so choosing a quiet graphics card and CPU cooler will be necessary if noise is a consideration for you. The second potential drawback is price, as the Carbide Air 740 retails for $149.99. This price is of course far lower than dual-chamber designs from Case Labs, but is still above many people's budget for an enclosure. The desire/need for dual-chamber is going to be user-specific, and Corsair certainly offers much more affordable options with great cooler performance as well."

Wed: 11/02/2016Topic: Cooling / Heatsinks    PermaLink has posted another review. Last week we have tested the Alphacool Eisbrecher 360 Pro XT45 Radiator. During its development, the focus was naturally on ensuring the highest performance. To this end, Alphacool developed the A.B.M. – the air breaker mat. This radiator was made for design systems and modding section.

Cooler Master's MasterAir Pro 3 and MasterAir Pro 4 CPU coolers represent the latest refinements in a long line of tower-style air heatsinks from the company. We strapped them onto Intel's unlocked Core i5-6600K CPU to see how they perform.

We test and review the MSI Core Frozr L processor cooler. MSI is placing the cooler in the market, likely made with the same designers and fab that manufacturers their TwiNFrozr GPU cooler. The end results of the first ever MSI processor cooler even baffled us, as it is really good.

Since it is essentially replacing the legendary Hyper 212+/EVO, the expectations for Cooler Master's new MasterAir Pro series is quite high. Despite not being a high-end product, the Hyper 212+ dominated the market with its popularity and sat on the throne of the bang-for-buck sweet spot for a long time. The market is different now than what it was when.

Mon: 10/31/2016Topic: Cooling / Heatsinks    PermaLink has just posted another review. Last week we have reviewed the brandnew Aquacomputer cuplex kryos NEXT water cooler.

"Now for the performance - this is a small cooler made to fit in small spaces. So it is not reasonable to expect the performance to be on par with coolers that are twice the size, let alone the ones that are so big they have their own zip code. And that is what the thermal testing showed. When the CPU was under a load, the cooler struggled to keep up even when the Pure Wings 2® 120mm PWM fan was running at full speed. This was without the additional stress of an overclock. However, I would expect that the majority of systems that would benefit from this cooler would not be subjected to full loads, especially not for extended periods of time. If you are benchmarking your enthusiast level system, chances are you are going to have an expensive, monster cooler sitting on your CPU, so I don't want to sound negative about the Shadow Rock LP. Given the intended application, I believe this cooler would be just fine for what I would consider normal use. And in a small case, your cooling options are usually limited, and that is where the Shadow Rock LP shines.”

These are two heatsinks born from the essence of the Hyper 212 Evo. The intent was to compliment the popular design while offering an alternative with the latest Cooler Master technology.

"Cooler Master has been a pretty big player in the air cooling market. Their Hyper Series of air coolers have been a favorite of system builders and enthusiasts for a long while. Since those coolers have been out many years now Cooler Master is today announcing the MasterAir Pro Series. This series is again targeted at system builders and people who are looking for a good air cooler that won’t break the bank. The MasterAir Pro Series is made up of 2 coolers, the MasterAir Pro 4 and MasterAir Pro 3. The MasterAir Pro 4 is made for typical builds, features four heatpipes, and has a 120 mm fan. The MasterAir Pro 3 on the other hand is made for smaller builds with three heatpipes and a 92 mm fan. Can these new coolers live up to the legacy of the Hyper Series? Read on as we find out!"

The Okeanos is Reeven’s flagship CPU cooler utilizing a twin-tower design. Just like Reeven’s other CPU coolers, it is named after a Greek deity, although this one is a bit weird considering ‘Okeanos’ is a Titan that personifies a body of water but this cooler is not an AIO liquid-cooling unit. It has some high expectations to live up to …

”Being the new kid on the block may cause some to lower their expectations, but ID-Cooling does not disappoint with the FrostFlow series of coolers. The cooler performed well under a mild overclock and the fan noise was not a concern. I am a big fan of red and black styling, but if you are not, then you do have a couple more options in the blue or white categories. Plus the "Comet Tail" LED on the pump is a nice feature. It adds a little motion to an otherwise static component. This feature, while not a performance feature, does make the FrostFlow stand out a little in a market that is becoming somewhat saturated with liquid coolers.”

Recently we have seen a fair few all-in-one liquid coolers here at KitGuru. While they offer good performance, typically better than competing air coolers at least, you simply stick them in your case and forget about them. Alphacool wants to change that mentality with its new Eisbaer range. The Eisbaer AIO is expandable – meaning there is more to it than simply whacking it in your case and enjoying the reduced temperatures.
