See all Noctua heatsink reviews available [X]
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 DeepCool's Gamer Storm Lucifer K2 heatsink is a revised version of the original Gamer Storm Lucifer heatsink, which Frostytech tested about a year back. The Lucifer K2 heatsink only differs in that it's not nickel plated and ships with a slim profile (20mm thick)120mm fan which makes the heatsink a little more accommodating on confined motherboards.

Thermalright's Le Grand Macho RT is massive in size, weighing in at 1060g with the fan. Capable of being used passively, it offers users a near-silent operation and top-tier performance when paired with the TY-147B fan. The competition should take note as Thermalright looks to steal the air-cooling crown.

”Having looked at a pretty broad cross section of Corsair's Hydro Series line up over the past few years gives me an opportunity to see the growth and changes that Corsair has implemented to its All-in-One cooling solutions. As technology has progressed, so have the pump and control systems used to maximize the performance potential of Corsair's designs. The Hydro Series H115i does not re-invent the wheel, as it were, but what it does do is provide a cooling solution for even Intel's latest Extreme series processors like the Core i7 5960X. If you run the H115i without using Corsair's Link software tools, the cooler seems to run in the Balanced Mode. In this mode, you get a good balance of pump and fan speed to deliver results in the 73 °C range on a Core i7 5960X running at 3.5GHz. Cranking the clock speed up to 4.2GHz drives the temperatures up another 17 °C, putting the thermal results right in the 90 °C range under load. Not bad when you look at the load the H115i is discharging.”

Move over Asus GX700 and MSI Titan, there’s a new gaming laptop at the top of the tree and its name is Asus ROG GX800VH. The model code suggests that GX800 is an upgrade of GX700, however that is wide of the mark. GX800 has a similar appearance to GX700 but the hardware is all new, starting with a pair of Nvidia GTX 1080 GPUs in SLI. Yes, two 1080s in a laptop, driving a 4K display for maximum gaming pleasure.

Thu: 09/08/2016Topic: Cooling / Heatsinks    PermaLink has just posted another review. Last week we have taken a look at the Enermax D.F. Pressure 12 cm fan. This fan has been designed specifically for the use on CPU coolers and radiators and achieved already at low speed a significantly higher static pressure than a simple case fan. We’ve tested them on an AIO watercooler.

Launching in April and under its sub-brand ‘Gamer Storm,’ Deepcool launched a newly upgraded cooler series called the Captain EX. Under this all-in-one (AIO) series, you will find 120mm, 240mm, and 360mm variants, which feature several features, such as their patented SS Design (Separated Section), a steam punk appearance, visible liquid flow, and LED lighting. New features with these coolers include things like upgraded high-density water micro-channel, anti-explosion rubber, unique silent TF 120 double-blade fan, as well as tooling free installation solution. These features do sound promising, so hopefully they allow the cooler to perform well. The Captain EX series visually looks similar to the former Captain series, but Deepcool upgraded a few features. Read on to see how the Captain 240 EX performs!

We have the Scythe Fuma for review today, a CPU cooler Scythe claim to be a smaller CPU cooler without “sacrificing performance”. The Fuma can be traced back to the Scythe Mine 2 CPU Cooler, with development in two main areas, base plate design and fin structures. We know the Mine 2 and it works well, though it’s now an older generation of cooler. Moving on to the Fuma, Scythe have also included a pair of Slip Stream series fans to help move the warm air away from the Twin-Tower design heatsink.

Cooler Master’s MasterCase 5 was one of the my favorite cases that I reviewed last year. I awarded it a perfect 10 out of 10 score and our Editor’s Choice Award. I liked the case so much that I made it a the base case that we use for CPU cooler reviews. Cooler Master has really reinvented themselves with their MasterCase Series of cases and today they are launching the MasterCase Pro 3 case. This case is very much like the MasterCase Pro 5, but smaller only supporting MicroATX motherboards. The case still will feature that solid design we know the MasterCase Series for, the FreeForm modular system which makes relocating parts and upgrading easy, removable radiator brackets, SSD mounts, and much more. Let’s take a look at what Cooler Master’s latest case has to offer."
