The Gelid Tranquillo 4 is built around four 16mm diameter copper heatpipes, a stack of ~40 nickel plated aluminum fins and a very unremarkable 1600rpm, 
120mm PWM fan. The heatsink makes use of 'exposed heatpipe base' 
thermal design. Technically speaking, the Coolermaster Ergostand III supports laptops with footprints up to 15 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.

"Despite the name, the EK-M.2 NVMe Heatsink can work on pretty much any 2280 length M.2 storage drive, whether it is SATA or NVMe based, which is good, because I’ve seen plenty of M.2 SATA that can use a little help running cool. With so many users these days opting for M.2 NVMe storage due to its small footprint and incredible performance, the EKWB M.2 heatsinks are a product that makes sense, as long as they work as intended and help lower the overall temperature of an M.2 SSD."

The Frostbit design features an "Ultra Thin" heatpipe embedded in the base of the cooler, which helps distribute heat from the M.2 SSD components evenly. The larger 6mm heatpipe pulls the heat into the passive radiator, which sports 38 fins, from both ends of the smaller heatsink.

"With increasing IOPS, SSD cooling demands also increase. This applies even to powerful models (NVMe) for common customers. In most cases, controllers can take a lot, but high temperatures do not add to their performance nor lifespan and they can cause problems even in very quiet computers or in a room with higher air temperature. An additional heatsink can do wonders. "

"Fast m.2-SSDs have the tendency to become quite hot. If you are reading or writing a lot of data, an NVMe-SSD will more often than not throttle in order to keep the temperature within acceptable limits. ... If you are using a fast m.2-SSD that uses the NVMe-protocol, such a heatsink offers a serious advantage. You do not purchase an SSD like that to only apply light load and under heavy load you only achieve the maximum performance if you have sufficient cooling. While we still measure differences between the individual heatsinks, when it comes to the performance it mainly matters that you use a heatsink and not so much which one. Only the MSI M.2 Shield stands out as a heatsink that is clearly not as effective; we would like to see a better solution with the next generation of that manufacturer. Although we have to add: it does its job, albeit not in the most elegant fashion."

"So you’ve got yourself a brand spanking new PC on order and you couldn’t be more stoked. This time you went all out. The latest high end desktop processor, flagship motherboard, maxed out memory, m.2s galore, and you even managed to snag a pair of 1080 ti’s right out from under a crypto miner’s nose. But did you consider cooling when you put that parts list together? That processor has more cores than it knows what to do with and they run hot. Hot like Hawaii growing further out of the Pacific, hot like the forest outside LA last summer. For cpu heat like that there is no other long term solution better than a traditional water cooling loop. And therein lies the problem. Watercooling is a whole new level of technical parts and perceived dangers. Luckily manufactures have realized this; enter the kit. These boxes come complete with all the parts that you need to put together your first loop. The bonus being that you are guaranteed to have compatible parts and if you choose the right kit you get real quality parts that can be used for years to come as you expand and upgrade. Today we are taking a look at one of those kits, the Eissturm Gaming Kit from Alphacool. Alphacool are old pros in the watercooling game hailing from Germany so expectations are high for this 360mm rad equipped loop. Follow along as we find out just how cool this kit can keep your processor."

NH-U14S DX-3647:
www.frostytech.com

Noctua today introduced three quiet CPU coolers for the LGA3647 socket of Intel’s Xeon Scalable (Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze) and Xeon-Phi processors. Coming in 140, 120 and 92mm form factors respectively, the new NH-U14S DX-3647, NH-U12S DX-3647 and NH-D9 DX-3647 4U cover all bases from large, ultra-high performance workstations all the way to compact 4U size servers. Thanks to their premium-grade Noctua fans, all three coolers are exceptionally quiet and ideally suited for use in noise-sensitive environments.

“Many people tend to think that high CPU core counts and state-of-the-art performance have to go hand in hand with loud cooling fans” says Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO). “Our new DX-3647 line coolers for Intel’s LGA3647 based Xeon processors prove that this does not have to be the case. Whether it’s a high-end workstation or a 4U server, these coolers allow massive computational power to be combined with whisper-quiet operation!”

The new DX-3647 line coolers are dedicated, customised solutions for Intel’s professional LGA3647 platform, which makes them an ideal fit for both Skylake-SP-based Xeon Scalable CPUs (Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze, Purley series) and Xeon-Phi processors (code names Knight’s Landing or Knight’s Mill). At 70x56mm, the heatsinks’ copper contact surface is more than double the size of the standard models. Tailored to fit the enormous integrated heat-spreaders (IHS) of Intel’s LGA3647-based processors, this customised design allows an optimal heat flow from the CPU over the base to the heatpipes and on to the cooling fins.

NH-U12S DX-3647:

Whereas the large 14cm NH-U14S DX-3647 and 12cm NH-U12S DX-3647 are ideal for tower-style cases and thus lend themselves to use in high-performance quiet workstations, the smaller NH-D9 DX-3647 4U fits 4U cases, which makes it perfect for 4U class rack-mount servers that need to run as quietly as possible. While the 14cm model relies on a single NF-A15 PWM fan to achieve maximum performance, thanks to its large surface area, the 12cm and 9cm models use dual fan configurations with two NF-A12x25 (NH-U12S DX-3647) and NF-A9 HS-PWM (NH-D9 DX-3647 4U) fans to ensure outstanding performance despite their smaller size and surface area.

The heatsinks’ SecuFirm2™ mounting system includes two sets of brackets in order to support both square and narrow-type LGA3647 sockets. Thanks to the pre-installed mounting screws and included processor clips (square type and narrow type without Omni-Path fabric connector, with fabric connector on request), the installation procedure is easy, quick and secure. All three DX-3647 coolers come with NT-H1 thermal compound pre-applied, which ensures optimal bond-line thickness and saves precious time during installation.

Heat is an inevitable byproduct of work. Heat is also prevalent in electronics, and when it comes to graphics cards you can manage it using passive cooling, fans and even water. But when these solutions aren't working, your GPU has one more way to beat the heat: thermal throttling.

Today a new reader review is published on OCinside.de where Nsp tests the Antec Mercury M240 AIO cooler for us in detail. He had been interested in water cooling before, but found it too complicated to assemble the various components and ensure their correct function permanently and tightly. In the following reader test we will see whether this is easier with the Antec Mercury 240.

Noctua Chromax is probably one of the most awaited products from the premium cooler manufacturer. We’ve said in most of our Noctua reviews, the branding and colour scheme is a marmite issue, love it or hate it, you are basically stuck with it. Last year, Noctua released the Chromax range. A range of products aimed at anyone who loves Noctua, but hates the branding. Or even, maybe for those who love the branding, but want something a little more contemporary.
