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.

"Back in March we looked at the cooling performance of Noctua's AMD EPYC heatsinks for cooling these Zen-based server processors. The Noctua heatsinks tested did a wonderful job testing those socket SP3 processors so when the Austrian company announced a few weeks ago their Xeon Scalable heatsink line-up, we decided it would be interesting to see how their latest Intel server heatsinks perform."

Especially our fans and your fans, a review on that new Sterrox based Noctua fan. Well, that and many more newly released ones. Noctua recently released new Sterrox manufactured 120mm fans in a wide range of configurations. The NF-A12 series, however, has been a fan series they worked on for four years! In this group test, we'll put nine recent Noctua fans to the test, and compared them in cooling performance, noise levels and airflow.

"From over four years of development, Noctua has produced a new flagship 120mm fan series with the computer enthusiast in mind. Whether you need low resistance airflow through a computer case for cooling, or high resistance air pressure through a heat sink or water cooler radiator, the NF-A12x25 fan series will meet those demands."

With the New Ark 90, Deepcool has a case for E-ATX motherboards in its portfolio, which comes with a lot of features and an integrated all-in-one cooler. Apart from that, it offers a lot of room for high-end setups. In addition this model supports RGB illumination and it's compatible with several lighting systems. For now, we're really curious to find out how this case is going to do in our review.

The Sandia Cooler is back, again!

www.frostytech.com

"Thermaltake today released the long-awaited Engine 17 1U Low-Profile CPU Cooler, the latest PC cooling innovation for Intel socket LGA 1150/1151/1155/1156 type CPU. The Engine 17 offers an excellent balance between performance, size and acoustics with the low-profile design (max TDP 35W), along with the most advanced thermal techniques. Unlike traditional CPU cooling solutions, the Engine 17 features 17mm height with a compact size 60mm PWM fan, allowing the cooler to be installed into any small form factor applications. The unique metallic (aluminum alloy) fan structure with copper base guarantees extremely quiet, yet powerful operation. The Engine 17 is the new standard in CPU air cooling technology, and it is exclusive to Thermaltake.

www.frostytech.com

Designed with 17mm height, the Engine 17 is the ideal CPU cooling solution for slim and small form factor applications, such as 1U server, HTPC, AIO/PIO PC, POS terminal and Booksize/Mini PC.

www.frostytech.com

Unlike traditional CPU coolers, the Engine 17 features a metallic structure and copper base that provides more fortified and efficient thermal paths for CPU. The metallic fan is designed to directly pull heat from CPU. Especially, the metallic fan base is engineered with small radial gaps that allow heat to be transferred rapidly to the rotating metallic fan. When the metallic fan blades generate cooling airflow, heat will also be transferred to the flowing air by both rotating fan and stationary fan base at the same time.

www.frostytech.com

Metallic fan with unique 40 blades design is engineered to generate higher airflow passing through the heatsink without sacrificing ultra-silent operation. The metallic blade rotation will create a centrifugal force on ambient air. In the meanwhile, the centrifugal forces will expel hot air so that heat can easily be taken away from the fan blades. Most importantly, this cooling technique can reduce the blade’s noise and vibration because hot air expelled will create a vacuum, and then fresh cooling air will be drawn in the heatsink.

The Engine 17 is specially designed with metallic radial fins to accelerate the thermal transfer process. Especially, the radial arrangement with 119 fin design can minimize the gap between the fan and the fins, thus, hot air can be exhausted more rapidly and efficiently.

The PWM function enables the motherboard to run the fan precisely at its necessary speed. The noise level can reduce to 11dBA. This guarantees ultra-quiet noise level without compromising on the cooling performance.

The Engine 17 perfectly solves the co-existing problem of high performance RAM and CPU coolers, achieving the best RAM clearance."

In this review, we look at the Raijintek Leto Pro RGB CPU cooler. The unit itself is a dual fan 120mm cooler that sports a relatively slimline single tower heatsink. paired with addressable RGB fans, this product could look great in any DiY PC, for those that shy away from LCS units.

Last fall I spent weeks testing and retesting a whole collection of ITX focused heatsinks that had AM4 support. At the time the first ITX boards were just coming out and a lot of the coolers didn’t support the new socket and those that did most people didn’t know how they would perform when packing 6 and 8 core CPUs into the form factor. I highly recommend everyone check out the article. Well, not to long after that Noctua introduced two more heatsinks and I’ve been wanting to see how they compare. I finally got around to it and today we are going to check out the NH-L12S and the NH-L9a-AM4.

"If you are purchasing a M.2 drive because you need high transfer speeds, seeing our results probably threw up a big red flag for you. Having a high speed drive is great, but not so much if the speed only lasts a couple of seconds. Luckily, in most situations the Samsung 950 Pro drive actually lasts a good amount of time under full load before it begins to throttle. For those that need a M.2 drive to run at full speed for longer periods of time, however, we decided to run some quick tests to compare a number of different M.2 drive cooling methods."

"While NVMe M.2 SSDs can be mighty fast, they also generate a surprising amount of heat to the point that some of these drives will end up thermal throttling if there is too much I/O activity for a prolonged amount of time. The TP02-M2 is designed for M.2 2280 length solid-state drives and is quite a simple but practical product if wishing to help dissipate the heat from high performance M.2 SSDs."

"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."
