The DeepCool Gamer Storm Lucifer heatsink 
is a fairly large CPU cooler, very much resembling a 
passive thermal solution on quick glance due to its boxy footprint 
and widely spaced aluminum fins. The heatsink isn't a passive cooler though, 
its single fan is very much required to keep the Lucifer from becoming like its name-sake. The Raijintek Tisis is a massive dual tower CPU cooler with twin fans, five big heatpipes and a kick-ass-and-take-names kind of look to it. The Tisis is a big boxy heatsink that stands upwards of 168mm tall, weighs 1050grams and ships with two lower RPM 140x150mm PWM fans that spin at 1000-600RPM. At first glance you probably won't notice that Reeven's Okeanos RC-1402 heatsink uses two slightly different fans - a 120mm vaneaxial fan on the front and a 140mm fan in between the two aluminum fin stacks.  The 120mm PWM fan supplied with the Justice RC-1204 heatsink spins at 1500-300RPM and connects via a 4-pin PWM motherboard header. Six 6mm diameter heatpipes connect the 114mm tall aluminum fin stack to the base below. What's particularly interesting about the Reeven Ouranos heatsink is not the number of heatpipes or the fact that it's yet another 'tower heatsink'... but that Reeven's thermal engineers have decided to use a combination of 8mm and 6mm diameter heatpipes in concert.

With the Captain 360, Deepcool has yet another all-in-one watercooler in its portfolio. In this case you can get an AiO with 360 millimeter radiator and three PWM fans for 139.99 USD. This makes us hope for lots and lots of cooling performance. Apart from that Deepcool told us that the pump noise has been reduced significantly, which means that this is potentially an excellent AiO.

Kelvin S24 is a closed loop liquid cooling solution which utilises a 240mm radiator. As such Fractal Design include dual 120mm cooling fans which are operate up to 1700RPM – slightly unusual for a product of this calibre which would usually have the facility of up to 2500RPM from other rivals.

Quote: What was most surprising is that this low profile cooler with a single fan is actually better than most of the low-end dual fan tower designs we have reviewed

We review the Phanteks Enthoo Luxe PC chassis. This full Tower chassis however is impressive in style and originality. Not only is the Phanteks Enthoo Luxe good looking but it is oozing with nice features. A great design chassis, tool free, lots of space, nice airflow and prepped for liquid cooling. Have a peek at we'll review today, the Phanteks Enthoo luxe. Read the full review here.

Older CPUs would simply fail if they started to overheat, but modern CPUs adjust their frequency based on temperature (among other things) to prevent a dramatic failure. Because of this, it stands to reason that once you reach certain temps, you will no longer be getting the maximum performance from your CPU because it will be busy protecting itself. But what is that temperature? And do you really need a high-end liquid-cooled system to get peak performance?

Updated the heatsink reference charts in this review of the NZXT Kraken X60 so you can see how it compares to current AIO units.

www.frostytech.com

"The Kraken X60 ships with two 140mm PWM fans that spin at 2000-800RPM and move 54-98CFM of air at 0.8-2.2mmH2O air pressure. The pump-head / water block is designed by Asetek and stands 31mm tall, 72mm in diameter. Connecting the radiator and pump together are 39cm long, 11mm O.D. flexible rubber tubes."

"Coolermaster's Nepton 240M utilizes a 277x120mm aluminum heat exchanger that measures 28mm thick. The 'Silencio' is a novel high-pressure fan that spins at 2400RPM-800RPM to drive up to 76CFM at 4.8mmH2O air pressure, according to manufacturer specs. Connecting the heat exchanger to the Nepton 240M's waterblock is a 310mm length of 13mm O.D. corrugated Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene (FEP) tubing."

The heatsink isn't a passive cooler though, its single fan is very much required to keep the Lucifer from becoming like its name-sake. The 140mm PWM fan is made by Deepcool with a rubberized frame so it sits comfortably against the aluminum fin stack without any rattling noises.

At first glance you probably won't notice that Reeven's Okeanos RC-1402 heatsink uses slightly different sized fans - a 120mm vaneaxial fan hanging off the front and a 140mm fan in between the two aluminum fin stacks. The difference in fan size is an effort to assure airflow through each fin tower is roughly equalized. Using matched fans in a dual tower heatsink is always somewhat counter productive as the internal fan has to deal with the obstruction in front of it which negatively affects airflow and RPM. In the case of the Okeanos heatsink, both fans operate at nearly the same speed range, the 120mm unit rotating at 1800-300RPM and the 140mm PWM fan at 1700-300RPM.

Tower heatsinks are one of the most popular offshoots from the evolutionary heatsink tree; from a users' perspective they're also a lower cost alternative to the expensive all-in-one liquid cooling solutions so prevalent right now.

In this review Frostytech will be testing the Reeven Justice RC-1204 heatsink, a 162mm tall tower CPU cooler with a 125x100mm footprint. Weighing in at 930grams, the Justice RC-1204 comes with a single 120mm PWM fan that spins at 1500-300RPM and moves upwards of 82CFM according to manufacturer specs.

On the test bench today is Reeven's Ouranos RC-1401 heatsink, a 160mm tall tower cooler that uses half a dozen heatpipes to conduct heat energy away from a solid copper heatspreader to a large aluminum cooling fin stack. The heatsink ships with a 140mm PWM fan whose orange impeller spins at 1700-300RPM. Reeven's Ouranos heatsink weighs in at 1030 grams and accommodates Intel socket LGA2011-3/2011/1366/115x/775 processors and the full range of AMD socket AM2/AM3/FM1/FM2 CPUs.

In this review Frostytech will be testing the Reeven Hans (RC-1205) heatsink, a 151mm tall tower cooler built around the usual mix of heatpipes, aluminum fins and a weighty copper base. Reeven a relatively new Taiwanese thermal solutions brand, though judging by the box art and company address, it appears to be mainstream-geared Scythe Co. Ltd. off-shoot. Reeven ship the Hans RC-1205 heatsink with a single 120mm PWM fan that operates at 1500-300RPM, shifting between 17CFM - 82CFM according to the manufacturer specs.

The Raijintek Tisis is a massive dual tower CPU cooler with twin fans, five big heatpipes and a kick-ass-and-take-names kind of look about it. It also has a pretty major design flaw which we'll get to in a moment.

The Tisis stands upwards of 168mm tall, weighs 1050grams and ships with a pair of 140x150mm PWM fans that spin at 1000-600RPM to drive up to 70CFM air through the unit. As you'd expect, Raijintek's Tisis heatsink is compatible with Intel socket LGA2011/1366/1156/1155/1150/775 Core i3/i5/i7 processors and AMD socket AM2/AM3/FM1/FM2 chips.

We have tested a number of quality GPU coolers in previous months, including both air and liquid cooled models. We are excited to see how the Raijintek Morpheus compares to other models from more established players in the market. We are particularly interested to see how it compares to the Accelero Xtreme IV, the flagship cooler from Arctic Cooling.

Although this is Be Quiet!'s first case the company not only applied what it learned about high-quality cooling and fan solutions in the past, it also brought in world renowned case experts. The Silent Base 800 was designed in-house from the ground up emphasizing form over function with a goal of achieving the best cooling performance possible at ultra low noise levels while still offering ample space for high-end components.

be quiet! are an industry leader when it comes to creating high-end components. They’ve won countless awards from technology publications around the world for their ultra-quiet, high-performance CPU coolers, fans and power supplies; a fair few of those awards came from us here at eTeknix. It’s with this award-winning performance in mind that I’m extremely excited about the product we have in for review today; the very first be quiet! chassis. The be quiet! Base 800 is their first attempt at the chassis market and while there are plenty of chassis on the market to choose from already, be quiet! are eager to show the world what they can do. Naturally the clue is in the name, be quiet! are dedicated to creating computer components that run super quiet; their chassis looks set to continue that trend. Equipped with Silent Wings fans, anti-vibration fittings, dust filters, sound dampening materials and durable panels, the Base 800 looks set to be one of the best chassis’ on the market. So let’s get right to it and take a closer look at what it has to offer.

CM Storm hardware made a very good impression- from its performance to its built quality. I’ll be honest, CM Storm tend to be under-rated products, hidden away below piles of similar products made by other brands. CM made an impression that they listen to people’s feedback. That’s the impression that I’ve got from Rapid-i mechanical keyboard. …and then comes CM Storm Novatouch TKL.
