"Noctua today officially announced that it will provide users of its CPU coolers with free mounting upgrade kits for the new AM4 socket of AMD's upcoming Ryzen architecture. The SecuFirm2 mounting-kits are backwards compatible with most Noctua CPU coolers manufactured since 2005 and will be available via resellers and free of charge via Noctua's website after uploading a proof of purchase.
Noctua will offer two different SecuFirm2 mounting upgrade kits for AM4: the NM-AM4-UxS kit for NH-U14S, NH-U12S and NH-U9S, and the NM-AM4 kit that supports most other retail cooler models manufactured since 2005 (NH-C12P, NH-C12P SE14, NH-C14, NH-C14S, NH-D14, NH-D14 SE2011, NH-D15, NH-D15S, NH-D9L, NH-L12, NH-L9x65, NH-U12, NH-U12F, NH-U12P, NH-U12P, SE1366, NH-U12P SE2, NH-U9, NH-U9B, NH-U9B SE2, NH-U9F) except for the NH-L9i/NH-L9a series low-profile coolers. In addition to the NM-AM4 and NM-AM4-UxS, Noctua also aims to offer an upgrade-kit for the NH-L9a later this year.
The SecuFirm2 mounting system for AM4 has been tailor-designed for the new socket in order to ensure optimal compatibility, perfect contact pressure and easy, straightforward installation. Both the NM-AM4 and the NM-AM4-UxS kit include two different sets of mounting bars, which allows the users to choose the orientation of the cooler according to their preferences in order to ensure an optimal alignment with the airflow path inside the case.
In order to obtain the kits free of charge via Noctua's website, users are required to upload a proof of purchase (electronic version, scan or photo of the invoice) of an AM4 motherboard or AM4 CPU as well as an eligible Noctua retail CPU cooler (server and workstation coolers of the DX and DO line are excluded from the free offer). Users who have lost the invoice for their Noctua cooler may write their full name and the current date on a piece of paper, take a photo of the paper next to their cooler and upload it as proof of purchase. Depending on the user's location, shipping will usually take 1–4 weeks.
For users who need the kit urgently or do not yet have a proof of purchase of an AM4 CPU or motherboard, the NM-AM4 and NM-AM4-UxS kits will also be available via selected retailers and e-tailers such as Amazon at a suggested retail price of EUR 7.90/USD 7.90.
Cooler Master are one of the leading manufacturers when it comes to PC cooling hardware, I mean, the they even have “cooler” in their name, so you know they mean business. They’re a popular choice for many system builders, from their budget friendly and rather fantastic Hyper 212X cooler series, right up to their new flagship air cooler, the MasterAir Maker 8. Of course, they’ve also created many great water coolers, and we’re eager to test out their latest one, the MasterLiquid Pro 280, which we have in the eTeknix office today.
The Corsair H45 CPU is a low-end liquid cooling system. It has a 120 mm radiator with one 120 mm fans. Let’s see how well it performs.
As with any sealed liquid cooling system, the Corsair H45 comes with the coolant liquid pre-filled inside the loop (block, radiator, pump, and hoses).
So in the past, all of our project build logs have all been for ITX LAN rigs because that’s what I really enjoy the most. My personal main PC has been looking a little dated though and I finally set out to build a new full ATX build. This is an exciting one for me because I finally get to build an orange build and if you can’t tell orange is my favorite color. I’m calling this one Crush both because of the Orange Crush reference and because I hope it crushes all of the games/benchmarks I throw at it. Today I’m going to talk a little about the build it is replacing and start by checking out the case Crush will be in. Keep an eye out in the future as I build and customize the build piece by piece.
The Cooler Master MasterAir Maker 8 is one of the most high-end coolers Cooler Master has ever created, and it’s been a big hit with system builders around the world. We missed it when it launched, but we wanted to see what all the fuss was about, and Cooler Master had a nice little treat in store for us with this sample too, so read on to find out what that was, it’s pretty awesome!
Our first CPU cooler review of 2017 and it’s the Arctic Freezer i32. The Arctic Freezer i32 is based on the Arctic Freezer i30, but Arctic state the i32 has several feature improvements that boost performance and reduce noise. Arctic have been around the PC and system builder’s scene for a very long time. In fact, we use Arctic MX2 for all our CPU cooler reviews just because we have used Arctic thermal paste for a very long time and trust it. We know what it is capable of and we know they know their thermal paste.
Noctua has introduced three new SE-AM4 versions of the NH-D15, NH-U12S
and NH-L9x65 heatsinks, for the new AM4 socket of AMD's upcoming Ryzen
architecture. Whereas the NH-L9x65 SE-AM4 is tailored for compact systems and
the NH-U12S SE-AM4 offers an excellent balance of performance and compatibility,
the NH-D15 SE-AM4 provides maximum cooling performance for overclockers and
"AMD's Ryzen architecture promises exciting possibilities for various
applications and the NH-D15, NH-U12S and NH-L9x65 are some of our most popular
models, so it was a natural choice to create dedicated special editions for the
new platform." With its supreme capacity at extreme heat loads, the NH-D15
SE-AM4 allows overclockers to push their AM4 systems to the limit and silent
enthusiasts to run the fans at super-low speeds. By contrast, the NH-L9x65
SE-AM4 features a highly compact design and low profile, which makes it ideal
for cooling lower TDP AM4 CPUs in HTPC or Small Form Factor cases. The mid-sized
single tower NH-U12S SE-AM4 provides an excellent balance of efficiency,
quietness and compatibility.
All three models feature the new SecuFirm2 system for AM4, which has been
tailor-designed for the new socket in order to ensure optimal compatibility,
perfect contact pressure and easy, straightforward installation. Two different
sets of mounting bars allow users to choose the orientation of the cooler
according to their preferences in order to ensure optimal alignment with the
airflow path inside the case.
Thanks to Noctua's state-of-the-art NF-A15, NF-F12 and NF-A9x14 PWM fans that
support fully automatic speed control and come with additional Low-Noise
Adaptors, the new SE-AM4 models run remarkably quietly and are especially suited
for highly noise-sensitive users aiming for near-silent operation. Topped off
with Noctua's proven NT-H1 thermal compound and a full 6-year manufacturer's
warranty, the NH-D15 SE-AM4, NH-U12S SE-AM4 and NH-L9x65 SE-AM4 form complete
premium-quality solutions that represent a deluxe choice for elite-class AM4
Prices and availability All three models are currently shipping and will
be available shortly. The suggested retail prices are as follows: NH-D15 SE-AM4: EUR 89.90/USD
99.90 NH-U12S SE-AM4: EUR
59.90/USD 64.90 NH-L9x65
SE-AM4: EUR 44.90/USD 52.90
Following on from our previous articles about fan configuration and static pressure vs airflow fans, today we are looking at thermal paste. Specifically, we are hoping to find out whether or not choosing different types of thermal paste actually makes any difference. To do this, we test 7 products from 6 companies to see how much difference thermal paste really makes.
We do not need to introduce the company Cooler Master. No matter whether cases, power supplies or peripheral, the manufacturer from Taiwan is at the top of many categories. Today with the MasterLiquid Pro 240 we introduce the latest compact water cooling from Cooler Master. Enjoy reading the review and exploring the new features.
be quiet! are one of the leading names in the PC component market. Not only do they make some of the best power supplies on the market, but they’ve also got many award-winning CPU coolers, fans, and in recent years, some stunning chassis products too. Of course, with a name like be quiet! it’s hardly surprising that many of their products are also the quietest in their respective markets, and that’s something we expect to see in their latest product, the Pure Base 600.
CRYORIG looks to improve their share of the all-in-one liquid cooler market by dominating the competition with the A80. Featuring their unique Hybrid Airflow Fan paired with a large 280 mm radiator, this interesting design might just turn a few heads.
It has been a while since we’ve had a chance to take a look at NZXT cooler, but in the past, we’ve been highly impressed with their products. Quite frankly, there hasn’t been a whole lot of innovation in the CPU cooler market, because it’s just tough to improve on something that’s already awesome. Instead, we see a lot of manufacturers adding visual improvements to the coolers to help make them stand out, but this really only helps for those who have windowed cases. Today we’re going to take a look at a trio of NZXT Kraken coolers, called the Kraken X42, X52, and X62. These coolers are updated version of the already successful X41 and X61 with a little added flare and were released just this past November.
With the MasterCase Pro 3, Cooler Master introduces a new compact mid-tower case, which is compatible with high-end components and mATX motherboard. The MasterCase Pro 3, like the other MasterCase cases, offers interesting features such as a modular HDD mounting system and a mid-plate to hide the power supply away. Overall this sounds like an interesting product and we're curious whether CoolerMaster is able to convice.

GIGABYTE at CES 2017 demo'd a 2U server with an 8GPU, 2CPU system with 24 memory modules fully immersed in a bath of a 3M Novec hydrocarbon (an inert, non-conductive fluid). Covering the CPU/GPUs was nothing more than large copper heatsinks.
"The concept for this design is a two-phase change from liquid to vapor and back, using no pumps but relying on the fact that the gas will condense and fall back into the solution and sink, causing automatic cycling. To cool the vapor as it rises through the system, a cold radiator is placed inside the sealed system.
Novec 72DA liquid is a solution of 70% 1,2-trans-dichloroethylene, 4-16% ethyl nonafluorobutyl ether, 4-6% ethyl nonafluoroisobutyl ether and trace other similar methyl variants. The liquid has a boiling point of 45ºC at very low viscosity (0.4 cP, compared to 0.89 cP for water), but also a low specific heat capacity (1.33 J/g/K, compared to 4.184 for water). "
