Scythe's Mugen Max heatsink weighs 870grams and stands 166mm tall. The 
heatsink is constructed around six 6mm diameter copper heatpipes which are soldered to a 2mm thick nickel plated copper base plate. The heatpipes are 
swaged into a 113x145x84mm aluminum fin stack which is roughly broken up into four nearly-separate cooling towers. In this review Frostytech is testing the Phanteks PH-TC12LS heatsink, a top-down low profile heatsink that stands 74mm tall and weighs in at 500grams. The PH-TC12LS has a footprint about the size of the 120mm PWM fan that rests atop its black-painted aluminum fins.  The whole premise behind the slim-tower Phanteks PH-TC14S heatsink is not overhanging memory slots - if you've built an Intel X99 based computer recently, you're undoubtedly aware that the memory slots straddle either side of the LGA2011-3 CPU socket with a little less than 20mm to spare. On the review bench today we have Scythe's Ashura 
heatsink; this is a fairly standard tower cooler equipped with a 140mm 
fan. The Ashura cooler stands 162mm tall, making it suitable 
for full tower cases where AIO liquid coolers are often too 
bulky. The NH-U9S heatsink stands 125mm tall and has a square footprint of 95x95mm. Weighing 618grams, the heatsink is built around five 6mm diameter heatpipes which are soldered to the aluminum cooling fins and copper base plate in typical Noctua fashion.

We have been sent the LT version of this memory to review, and it’s part of an ever growing DDR4 market from Crucial and indeed from the mainstream manufacturers, who are boosting all their ranges in 2015. Crucial are a cornerstone of memory manufacturing, so we should expect solid performance and products, so let’s do some testing and see what the LT can do."

"Noctua has once again made a product with considerable thought and care. The NH-U9S fills that gab between the low performance stock coolers from both Intel and AMD, and provides something that can dissipate a large volume of heat within small confinement. I often run into this problem when reviewing chassis, where I find it to be great, but lack the height to install a decent size aftermarket cooler. This is where Noctua comes in! While All-In-One (AIO) coolers are great, it doesn't always fit within the users build preference or budget. It's also true that not every consumer wants to overclock, but do like the idea of lower temperatures compared to stock coolers. The NH-U9S fits perfectly within the socket specifications for Intel or AMD. This is great for small form factors like ITX or M-ATX motherboards.”

Für dieses Jahr haben wir versprochen, dass wir mehr auf die fertigen Wasserkühlungen eingehen, und das tun wir auch. Nach den zwei beliebtesten Modellen in der 240 mm Kategorie wollen wir euch diesmal eine 280 mm Lösung vorstellen, den NZXT Kraken X61. AIO Wasserkühlungen erfreuen sich immer größerer Beliebtheit und die Hersteller reagieren natürlich mit immer neueren und besseren Modellen darauf. Vor 3-4 Jahren waren die Komplettlösungen noch völlig unausgereift. Die Pumpenleisten war zu schwach, nebenbei waren sie viel zu laut. Es steckte eben noch in den Kinderschuhen.

Corsair’s new H100i GTX all-in-one water cooling system is the latest evolution of the H100 series of dual 120 mm cooling systems. This version adds Corsair link capability, improved cold plate and pump performance for better thermal efficiency and throws in a cosmetic update as well. In this article, Benchmark Reviews takes the new Corsair H100i GTX out for a test drive and compares its performance against a few other popular all-in-one cooling solutions.

"Noctua, like always, continues to make its products with considerable thought and care. The NH-D9L fills a even greater gap than the NH-U9S, while still covering the basics by focus on the low performance stock coolers from both Intel and AMD and provides something that can dissipate a large volume of heat within small confinement. The extra bit difference here is the D9L is 3U compatible allowing for a even smaller footprint reaching only 110mm. This is where I often run into this problem with a chassis, where I find it to be great, but lack the height to install a decent size aftermarket cooler. A great example would be Cooler Master Stacker series with its ITX chassis. That chassis was a rough sell considering the zero extra space. This is where Noctua comes in!”

Thermaltake, an industry leader in computer chassis, thermal solutions, and power supply units, introduces the full range of Pacific RL (over 50mm thickness) and R Series (under 50mm thickness) radiators.

www.frostytech.com
Designed for the most demanding and hardcore enthusiasts, the Thermaltake Pacific Radiator Series is optimized for maximum heat dispatching. The radiators are designed without compromise, with high-quality German aerospace-grade materials and constructed with zinc, a powerful anti-corrosion agent.

www.frostytech.com
An exceptional manufacturing process using high temperature brazing at 1022?/550? sets Pacific Radiators in a class of their own. Integrated G1/4" threads make it easy to install, while rigid connections ensure they are leak-resistant. With an ideal mounting, fitting and flow set-up, the Thermaltake Pacific Radiator Series is guaranteed to go above and beyond your current cooling standards.

The Pacific RL Series is an ultra-thick radiator (over 50mm thickness) with a dual-row 13-set flat tube design to increase heat transfer. Water flows down on one side, and then passes through the bottom chamber before being circulated back to the other side of the radiator. Choose from: 120mm, 140mm, 240mm, 280mm, 360mm, 420mm, 480mm, and 560mm radiator lengths to provide easier fitting installation and loop management. The Pacific R Series is a slim radiator (under 50mm thickness) with only a single 13-set flat tube design This series is available in 120mm, 180mm, 240mm, 360mm, and 540mm sizes and is guaranteed to provide exceptional performance in a slimmer, sleeker design.

www.frostytech.com

The Pacific Radiator Series delivers an average heating load of 32?-35? (90-95?) on each radiator. After brazing, the fin and tube connect to form a joint, thereby creating more uniform heat transference. By efficiently pulling heat away from the power-dissipating components, the radiators ensure component reliability.

www.frostytech.com

Fin density is optimally designed to accommodate high air pressure. The cooling performance improves significantly with increased fan speed, offering exceptional cooling performance during operation.

German-Made Anti-Corrosion Materials The radiators are designed to reduce electronic conductivity and can withstand scratches to the zinc layer. The corrosion potential of aluminum alloy combined with zinc is reduced by 55.6% after brazing.

High-Quality Manufacturing Process: Brazing The radiators are baked through a controlled-atmosphere brazing line. The materials melt into each other to achieve optimal thermal transfer from the tubes to the actual fins in order to attain better overall heat evacuation and dispatching.

Based on the acclaimed H5 Universal, CRYORIG has extended the successful Hive Fin™ based H series line with the CRYORIG H5 Ultimate. The H5 Ultimate features the same award winning features as the original H5 Universal, but with a larger XF140 140 mm fan and new jet-black heatsink covers. The larger XF140 increases the H5 Ultimate’s TDP from 160 to 180 Watt, putting the proprietary Hive Fin™ system to work. Together with the acclaimed MultiSeg™ mounting system, the H5 Ultimate will be the strongest single tower solution CRYORIG has up to date. “The CRYORIG H5 Ultimate is the natural evolution of the H5 Universal. It follows our strategy of offering two different styles of products for our models. The Universal line focuses on the best compatibility on the market, and the Ultimate line, which is about pure performance. The PC DIY Modding and Overclocking crowd is a smart bunch of people who know what they need and want. We at CRYORIG believe that giving extra options and choices ultimately allows for users to find and chose what they need, instead of having the brands choose for them. Choice of customization is key.” – Alex W. Co-Founder of CRYORIG.

The included XF140’s air flow rating comes in at 76 CFM, around 17% more than the H5 Universal. Along with the H5 Ultimate’s moniker Hive Fin™ optimized air flow system, the H5 Ultimate boosts its overall TDP wattage to 180 Watt, enough for almost all modern CPU platforms. The H5 Ultimate is scheduled to be released this summer, MSRP set at 46,99 USD in North America and 39,99 Euros in Germany, other regions may vary.

It is safe to say that hardware enthusiasts are concerned with cooling and is one reason why there are lengthy discussions on what cooler is best. Keep in mind that “the best” cooler is a bit of a misnomer in that a cooler appropriate for overclocking might not work well if you are building a super stealthy system. Likewise, going with inexpensive coolers for the sake of replacing an OEM heatsink isn’t the right approach either as it may not be sized properly to give adequate performance. In this review we will be looking at the Noctua NH-D9L D-Type heatsink. This is a cooler we got to see last year at Computex and were rather amazed that they would attempt a smaller heatsink given their prevalence for 140mm+ designs. The purpose here is to complement the push for smaller form factor machines and still deliver superior cooling performance with near silent operation.

Quoting Anandtech.com: "It appears that Moneaul's multi-million dollar fraud will not be driving Zalman to bankruptcy after all. Word comes that the Korean courthouse handling the case has decided that Zalman, which was a child company of Moneaul, was not involved in the fraud and holds no responsibility for the actions of the parent company. We should remind you that Moneaul instigated a major financial scandal in Korea, implicating many major banks and causing a direct financial damage of nearly 3.2 Trillion Korean Won (about three billion US dollars).

The Korean courthouse decided that Zalman should be severed from Moneaul and continue to operate under their oversight and jurisdiction. As a result Zalman has been allowed to restructure the company, doing so under the supervision of the Korean justice system.

What does that mean for Zalman's customers? Zalman will not need to file for bankruptcy nor liquefy any of their assets. The company will continue to operate normally and all post-purchase support and warranties remain valid. In some ways the company hasn't even skipped a beat, recently announcing the release of a new product, the Z11 Neo case."

After hearing about 5 GHz overclocks from pre-production fourth-generation Core processors (that's Haswell, for fans of code names), enthusiasts were despondent to hear that retail parts would be far less friendly. Angelini even went so far as to poll folks with hundreds of retail processors for his launch coverage in The Core i7-4770K Review: Haswell Is Faster; Desktop Enthusiasts Yawn. The consensus was that stability at 4.5 and 4.6 GHz on air was extremely rare, that most enthusiasts should expect to top out at 4.3 GHz or less using 1.2 V, and that heat is the most likely culprit.

Noctua's NH-L9i has been on the market for a long time, and it works reasonably well as a Mini-ITX cooler that's compatible with a lot of motherboards. The issue with it, however, is that it only performs "reasonably" well, and many users would like a little more cooling oomph for their Mini-ITX systems, as the motherboards are capable of supporting very powerful CPUs.

"Today we are reviewing a product from a new company to us here at ThinkComputers and a new company to many of you reading this I’m sure. CRYORIG was only founded in 2013 so they are quite new to the PC Enthusiast market and being so new they do have some very stiff competition when it comes to CPU Coolers. Today we are taking a look at their flagship air CPU Cooler, the R1 Ultimate. CRYORIG is touting this cooler as the “most sophisticated dual tower to date” and I do have to say it does have some things that I’ve never seen on a tower cooler before. This cooler is also one of the largest CPU coolers we have taken a look at this year, has dual 140mm fans, seven thick heatpipes, and a very sleek look. Let’s see what this cooler can do!"
