See all Phanteks heatsink reviews available [X]
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. By doing away with the heatsink heatspreader, inconsistencies in the solder bond between heatpipes and copper base plate are omitted. The exposed heatpipe base approach also lightens things up, the 160mm tall SE-214X weighs a modest 740grams. In addition to the copper heatpipes there is the aforementioned vertical aluminum rod going down through the center 
of the fins. On the test bench today we have BeQuiet's Pure Rock heatsink - a 155mm tall tower cooler built around four 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and paired with one of BeQuiet's 'Pure Wings 2' low noise 120mm fans.

“While beige and brown provide a unique aesthetic that clearly defines the Noctua brand, it hardly fits in most color schemes that builders decide on for their rigs. Just when all hope was lost that we would ever see anything different, Noctua decided to give us two new colors in their arsenal of fans; a grey scheme for the Redux line and a black/brown scheme for their Industrial line. Let’s continue our closer look in this Part II Roundup of Noctua fans.”

The GeForce Titan X is a processing powerhorse, with its GM200 chip carrying six graphics processing clusters, 24 streaming multiprocessors with 3072 CUDA cores. Combined with six 64-bit memory controllers (384-bit) for a total 12GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 7GHz, that's 50% more cores and memory bandwidth than today's single-GPU king, the GeForce GTX 980, released only six months ago. With those numbers we're eager to see what this card is capable of.

Initially conceived of as a convenient and more affordable alternative to building a custom liquid-cooling loop, the first generation self-contained all-in-one CPU cooler units did not succeed in their attempt; performing poorly, costing a lot and if you were one of the unlucky ones, damaged your entire system after it started leaking. It took a while but manufacturers have successfully...

Raijintek is quickly establishing a reputation for being one of the best chassis manufacturers around. Time and time again they’ve shown us that they can make fiercely competitive products, that are packed full of features, with great esthetics and build quality, while maintaining a very affordable price point. Raijintek have set such a good standard for themselves, so I have very high expectations of their latest product, the Aeneas Micro-ATX chassis. The Aeneas is the latest addition to the booming cube-style chassis market. There’s a lot of great chassis’ now available in this form factor, catering to the growing demand of consumers and gamers, for powerful desktop systems. Just like the boom in Mini-ITX chassis after the release of the BitFenix Prodigy, Micro-ATX cube-style chassis’ are now growing in demand as system builders want more space for the latest generations of high-end graphics cards, multi-GPU configurations and of course, room for water cooling, especially with the increasing popularity of custom loop cooling.

A couple of weeks back at GDC, in a bit of a surprise move considering NVIDIA’s CEO Jen Hsun Huang just left the stage at the company’s own GPU Technology Conference (GTC), the GeForce GTX Titan X was unveiled. The unveiling, which took place during one of EPIC’s talks, was somewhat casual and only a couple of details were disclosed. Jen Hsun said that GeForce GTX Titan X cards featured 12GB of memory and a GPU that packed in roughly 8 billion transistors. Besides whatever we could discern from a few quick pictures, no other details were given. Today though, we can give you the full scoop. We’ve have a GeForce GTX Titan X in house for a little while now and have taken it for a spin, alongside some of NVIDIA’s other high-end cards—AMD’s too...

We have been impressed with the wide cross section of GTX970's and GTX980's we have reviewed since Nvidia’s official launch. It was interesting to note on launch day that Nvidia didn’t sample a reference GTX970, instead relying on partners to supply custom cooled overclocked solutions. Nvidia’s distinctive reference cooler has a devoted, loyal user base … who were royally miffed that a GTX970 reference card was not available. Andrew ‘Gibbo’ Gibson in Overclockers UK was keen to resolve the problem and he worked hard to create an ‘improved’ reference design – a worldwide exclusive.

DeepCool was founded in 1996 producing cooling accessories for desktops and servers. With personal computers becoming one of the most important tools of our time, they expanded into AIO liquid cooling, cases and power supplies. In September2014, they introduced the Captain AIO liquid cooler series that features a Patented SS design (Separated Section) that divides the pump and cold plate into two blocks, connected by a unique transparent connection tube makes the water flow visible. The cooler is topped off with an LED light on the top to give it the nuclear-reactor like appearance that the designers were going after.

Noctua call this their flagship model, their premium product, meaning you cannot buy a better air cooling Noctua product. A lofty claim if it wasn’t from Noctua themselves, but basing this on their D14 means they might just know what they are talking about."

In todays review we have a look at the new Corsair H80i GT AIO liquid cooler. This newly introduced processor cooler is compatible with Corsair's LINK software. This allows you to program, customize and monitor this all-in-one liquid cooling solution for your processor. Armed with two 120mm fans in a push-pull configuration and a nice extra thick 120mm radiator; the performance should be pretty okay. All that and you get configurable RGB lightning as well.

New zipper fin heat sinks from Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. (ATS) are protecting thousands of components from the dangers of excess heat at a lower cost than other high fin density heat sink types.

Zipper fins are machined from thin sheet metal, typically aluminum or copper, and are formed into custom shapes. The sheets are designed to interlock with a very narrow space between their layers. The fin assembly is wave soldered to a metal base forming a very rigid, lightweight heat sink.

The zipper fin production process yields a lower cost heat sink than bonded fin designs. This is mainly because bonded heat sinks require more expensive tooling to manufacture. Zipper fin heat sinks can also be made in high aspect ratio fin profiles, enabling taller, thinner and more tightly packed fins for higher cooling performance.

Zipper fin sinks can be designed with integral ducts to contain and optimize cooling airflow. This improves thermal performance, particularly with active sinks that receive airflows from fans and blowers. For many of these designs, the top surface of the heat sink can also be used as a heat spreader for hot components.

Zipper fin heat sinks allow the combined use of copper and aluminum materials. In these designs, the copper base allows for optimal heat spreading while the aluminum fins ensure the heat sink will be lightweight.

With the benefits of higher performance and lighter weight, ATS zipper fin heat sinks can be used to cool LEDs, as well as hot components in telecom, datacom, military and embedded electronics industries.

More information and a video describing zipper fin heat sinks is available on the company website, Qats.com, or by calling Advanced Thermal Solutions at 781-769-2800.

"Compared to the models that Noctua succeeded with (as mentioned in on the very front of the box), there are gains. The Flow Accelerations Channels are the real difference here and are likely the reason for the improvements. However, these improvements are not across the board. These fans use more power (still barely enough to even blink at though) and are slightly to a fair bit louder. However, they have higher RPMs, better CFM, and much better static pressure ratings. This still easily constitutes an improvement in my book and simply exemplifies the difficulties present in trying to reduce noise while improving performance.”

Continuing its recent focus on premium grade cooling components for compact systems such as ITX based gaming or Home Theater PCs, Noctua today released its new NH-L9x65 low-profile cooler and a 4-pin PWM version of its popular NF-A6x25 60mm fan. While the latter adds PWM support for automatic speed control to the proven NF-A6x25 design, the NH-L9x65 is a taller, performance-enhanced version of Noctua's award-winning NH-L9 low-profile coolers.

www.frostytech.com
"Our NH-L9 coolers have become a default choice for customers seeking premium grade quiet coolers in the sub-40mm class, but with a height of only 37mm, their performance is inevitably limited", explains Mag. Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO), "The new NH-L9x65 provides the increased performance necessary to cool high end CPUs quietly while still offering excellent case and component compatibility."

Due to its compact heatsink and the renowned 14mm thin NF-A9x14 PWM fan, the NH-L9x65 stands only 65mm tall (the same height as low-profile expansion cards), which makes it ideal for use in compact HTPCs or Small Form Factor cases that offer limited clearance for CPU coolers. With 65 instead of 37mm height and four instead of two heatpipes, the NH-L9x65 is more powerful than its smaller siblings yet retains their 95x95mm footprint, which guarantees 100% RAM and PCIe compatibility on Intel based ITX mainboards and makes the cooler more convenient to work with as it doesn't overhang near-socket connectors.

Topped off with the professional SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system for Intel and AMD, Noctua's renowned NT-H1 thermal compound and 6 years manufacturer's warranty, the NH-L9x65 fuses everything users have come to expect from Noctua's larger coolers into a compact premium package for space restricted systems. "With the trend towards highly compact, ITX based builds, 60mm fans are in demand again", says Mag. Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO), "Since more and more ITX mainboards offer PWM speed control on the case fan header or even multiple PWM headers, we're now providing a 4-pin PWM version of our popular, award-winning NF-A6x25 model." The new PWM version of the NF-A6x25 sports Noctua's custom designed NE-FD1 IC for fully automatic speed control via 4-pin fan headers and comes with a Low-Noise-Adaptor to reduce the maximum speed during PWM control from 3000 to 2300rpm. Its superb running smoothness, SSO2 bearing and Noctua's trusted premium quality make it an elite 60mm choice for the highest demands. Prices and availability The new models are currently shipping and will be available shortly. The manufacturer suggested retail prices are as follows: NH-L9x65: EUR 44.90 / USD 52.90 NF-A6x25 PWM: EUR 14.90 / USD 17.90
