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

"In case you missed it, we recently checked out and reviewed the Kraken X52 AiO water cooling system. Not only does it have a super unique pump casing which features a sweet RGB LED infinity mirror on the top, but the performance was top level as well. As with most companies, NZXT of course offers the same cooler in several different sizes. In the lab today we’ve got the top dog on the block, the X62. The X62 features the same awesome pump and boosts performance up a notch by adding a larger 280mm radiator. Follow along as we find out if this next step is worth the upgrade and worth your extra cash."

In this review I’ll be looking at the new iCX Technology from EVGA. iCX Technology is more than just a cooler and can be applied to any EVGA video card like the GTX 1070 SC2 (SuperClocked 2) featured in this review.

In this article for Benchmark Reviews, we will test the Reeven Polariz RFC-4 fan controller to see if it provides enough functionality and style to justify the cost and space required in a custom desktop PC build.

RGB lighting is the current trend these days, appearing in everything from keyboards and mice to less obvious items like motherboards and mouse pads. While LED-lit fans have been around for years, leave it to Corsair to take it to the next level with their Corsair HD120 RGB fans. You can buy these fans individually, but today Benchmark Reviews is testing the HD120 RGB three-pack of fans with the included fan hub and controller (model CO-9050067-WW).

"Panasonic's New "NASBIS" Insulating Sheets stands for
Nano Silica Balloon Insulator Sheet. This new addition to Panasonic's line of Thermal Management solutions is a thin, flexible Nano-Silica heat insulation material composed of silica aerogel and polyester fiber that has high thermal isolative properties. The thermal conductivity of NASBIS is lower than that of air, making it a very attractive material for heat insulation. NASBIS Sheets protect thermally weak products from heat and works to maintain a uniform temperature throughout a device.

When combined in a stack with Panasonic's Pyrolytic Graphite Sheet, or PGS, NASBIS Insulating Sheets enable the control of heat direction. This proprietary composite material provides greater heat insulating performance.

Feaures: Low Thermal Conductivity: 0.014 – 0.02 W/m • K, Thin and Flexible, Thicknesses Range from 100µm to 1,000µm, NASBIS Sheets Are Covered With Polyester (PET) Tape and Offered With Adhesive, NASBIS / PGS Composite Stacks Provide Optimal Thermal Management Solutions"

With a triple 120mm radiator, quick-lock mechanism, three "silent" 120mm fans and a high-performance ceramic pump the new Eisbaer 360 AIO Liquid CPU Cooling System by Alphacool should have no problem covering the needs of even the most demanding consumers.

”When it comes to performance, the R7 1800X, R7 1700X, and R7 1700 all deliver exceptional performance. Not only when you compare against AMD's own FX previous generation CPU's, but against Intel's new Kaby Lake Core i7 7700K and Haswell-E 8C/16T Core i7 5960X. In heavy multi-threaded workloads, the Ryzen processors provide comparable or better performance across the board. In single threaded applications, the boost clock speeds drive performance to comparable levels when the core clock speeds are not too far apart. The Core i7 7700K at 4.9GHz is still going to outperform the R7 1800X at 4GHz single threaded. Where Summit Ridge shines is in that multi-threaded workload environment. Single threaded performance is not bad to say the least, especially when you compare to the FX line up. It's safe to say AMD hit its performance targets."

It’s finally here and its finally time to talk about. The AMD Ryzen processor is being released onto the world and based on the buildup of excitement over the last week or so since pre-orders began, details on just how Ryzen performs relative to Intel’s mainstream and enthusiast processors are a hot commodity. While leaks have been surfacing for months and details seem to be streaming out from those not bound to the same restrictions we have been, I think you are going to find our analysis of the Ryzen 7 1800X processor to be quite interesting and maybe a little different as well.

"Cooler Master have ensured the installation process is a breeze even if you’re a newbie to liquid cooling. At its present price tag of US$95 there’s honestly not much to think about. If you’re looking for a cooler with the right balance of performance and low noise, you simply can’t go wrong with the MasterLiquid Pro 240."

What we want to focus on today, though, is the NSG-S0 – a chassis with integrated cooling for your CPU and graphics card. What makes the NSG-S0 special is the fact that it is completely fanless, and thus completely silent.

The setup of the Aeotec DSB45 was extremely easy, and within just minutes I was able to use the Wink app to confirm just how fast the sensor would alert me to wet and dry conditions. I have placed the one DSB45 by my water heater and I am already feeling a bit of peace of mind from just the ability to receive alerts about the presence of water. I will soon add a Z-Wave controlled valve to have the water cut off if the DSB45 sensor ever detects water in that area.

The AMD Ryzen 7 processors still use the same AM4 socket, but the mount holes are placed further out. This may mean your existing AM4 cooler may not mount properly on the new Ryzen 7 motherboards. So let's check out what AMD's CPU cooler partners have in store to pair with the AMD Ryzen 7 processors.
