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. While Scythe doesn't overtly market its heatsinks as

Japanese cooling expert Scythe announces the PCGH Edition of the Mugen 5 CPU Cooler, which has been designed in collaboration with the German “PC Games Hardware” magazine with the aim to supply outstanding performance at significantly decreased noise levels! Mugen 5 PCGH Edition achieves this goal by bundling two instead of one Kaze Flex 120 PWM axial fans with a dynamic fan speed range of 300 to 800 RPM. The performance improvement is reached by using the push/pull principle. The PCGH Edition of Mugen 5 offers compatibility to all modern sockets including the new socket AM4.

The first collaboration between Scythe and the PC Games Hardware magazine was successfully celebrated with the announcement of Mugen 2 PCGH Edition. New Mugen 5 PCGH Edition follows in the footsteps of the predecessor, offering two instead of only one fan. There is more to it, than just bundling two fans. The supplied Kaze Flex 120 PWM models are operating at maximum 800 RPM instead of 1.200 RPM of the regular model. Decreasing the fan speed resulted in much lower noise levels, which could be brought down from 24,9 to mere 14,5 dBA! In addition to the technical tweaks of the fans, visual adjustments have been made as well. The dual-color fan design has been changed to a solid all-black appearance. The fans incorporate Scythe’s recently developed self-contained liquid Sealed Precision FDB bearing, which reduces friction and wear significantly and offers average lifespan of 120.000 hours. Special rubber-insulators are attached at the corners, preventing the transfer of vibration from the fan to the heatsink, resulting in greater stability and lower noise levels.

The Mugen 5 PCGH Editions heatsink remains the same, offering 6 high-quality all-copper heatpipes and a big aluminum fin stack. Outstanding memory modules compatibility is achieved thanks to the asymmetrical design. The solid copper base-plate has been slightly shifted for this purpose. Several layers of fins on the back of the heatsink have been shortened, to further increase RAM compatibility. Mugen 5 PCGH Edition is designed to fit into most on-market PC chassis, thanks to its height of only 154,5 mm. All copper-heatpipes as well as the copper-baseplate are nickel-plated, which improves the quality and prevents corrosion of the material.

Scythe is utilizing the second generation of the Hyper Precision Mounting System (H.P.M.S. II) for Mugen 5 PCGH Edition. The mounting system is based on preassembled metal mounting bars with spring-loaded screws and a solid backplate. This has several advantages, such as faster mounting process and more even pressure distribution. The Mugen 5 PCGH Edition supports all the latest CPU sockets, including the Intel® Sockets LGA775, LGA1150, LGA1151, LGA1155, LGA1156, LGA1366 and LGA2011(V3) as well as AMD® Sockets AM2(+), AM3(+), FM1, FM2(+) and new socket AM4. The package contains all required clips for mounting, two fans with fan clips, long screw driver, user-manual as well as a package of thermal grease.

NZXT announces today the Kraken G12 kit, allowing users to use their liquid AIOs to better cool their GPUs. Lower temperatures at lower noise improve both gaming performance and experience. By mounting an AIO, like the NZXT Kraken Series, users can significantly lower their GPU’s temperatures compared to its stock cooling, increase overclocking performance, and reduce noise output for an improved gaming experience. An update to the previous Kraken G10, the Kraken G12 allows for easier installation and wider compatibility with more than 30 popular liquid AIOs on the market.

“Being able to play the latest games at the highest settings, without sacrificing performance is something all gamers want. While aftermarket graphic cards have improved lately, most stock cooling systems still can’t reach the performance level of liquid cooling. That’s why we decided to design the updated Kraken G12 to be easier to install and support the latest liquid AIOs” says Johnny Hou, NZXT’s founder, and CEO.


•40% better cooling over stock GPU coolers
•Newly redesigned bracket for easier installation
•Compatible with more than 30 liquid AIOs on the market

With the AXP-100RH we present a slightly higher version of the popular HTPC cooler to match the AXP-100H Muscle. We would also like to use the opportunity to introduce the Silver Arrow ITX-R, which will become available at the beginning of March.

The AXP-100RH has been designed for users who are looking for maximum cooling capacity at minimal dimensions. The adjustment in height became necessary to match the higher VRM cooler of the most recent ASUS “Republic of Gamers” MAXIMUS motherboard series.

The black and red design of the original AXP-100R was meant as a homage to the “Republic of Gamers” series. In order to use the cooler on the new Mini-ITX motherboards, the height was increased by 7 mm. With its 51 mm (65 mm with the fan), it is the perfect cooler for compact home theater/multimedia systems or minimalistic work stations with a limited height.

www.frostytech.com

The AXP-100RH is equipped with six 6 mm heatpipes, finished with high-end heatpipe caps. The cooler uses the well-known T-shaped “down draft” design, in which the air flow is directed perpendicular to the mainboard, which allows the cooling of the surrounding motherboard components at the same time. Included is the well-known TY 100R fan.

The included „Enhanced Fan Mount“ of the AXP-100RH allows maximum flexibility when installing fan, in order to make best use of the available space in HTC-cases. In addition, the “Enhanced Fan Mount” allows the easy installation of larger fans with 120 mm mounting holes (like the TY 147B) on the cooler.

The Silver Arrow ITX-R succeeds the Silver Arrow ITX and is much more compact than its predecessor. The twin-tower cooler impresses with its reduced dimensions and fits in a lot more Mini-ITX cases, but will also excel on Micro-ATX or ATX systems.

An eye catcher is without a doubt the black high-gloss nickel plating of the heatsink, which in combination with the black and red TY-129 fan underlines the high-quality processing. The fan is installed between the two cooling towers, in order to avoid collisions with RAM modules or VRM coolers.

The cooler comes with six powerful 6 mm copper heatpipes. They are tightly integrated into the nickel-plated cooper base, to allow the most effective heat dissipation. The included TY 129 PWM-fan rotates between 300 and 1,300 rpm. This means during standard operation the fan is virtually unnoticeable from the outside. The air flow of the silent optimized fans ranges from 21.9 and 94.8 m³/h, at a noise level between 21 and 33 dB(A).

The AXP-100RH and the Silver Arrow ITX-R come with the latest universal mounting kit, which allows the installation of the cooler on all current Intel- and AMD-CPU’s. Both coolers are explicitly compatible to the new AM4 processors from AMD.

CRYORIG, PC thermal solutions expert has built upon the successful QF120 line of system fans to release the new QF140 Performance and QF140 Silent 140 mm fans. The QF140 like the original QF120 line features CRYORIG proprietary Quad Air Intake™ system. Four strategically placed air intakes are located on the corners of the QF140 fan frame, allowing the static pressure optimized fan blades take in extra air from the sides of the fan frame increasing overall air output. CRYORIG HPLN™ High Precision Low Noise fluid bearing is used again for low noise performance. Integrated rubber Vibration Absorbers also come preinstalled to absorb excess vibration. Both QF140 models are fully PWM capable for advanced user RPM control.

This time the QF140 will be released in two models the QF140 Performance with a fan speed range from 600 to 1.850 RPM and the QF140 Silent with 200 to 1.000 RPM catering directly to specific user needs.

The QF140 Performance with a max 1.850 RPM is perfect for 280 mm radiators or users in need of large system airflow and high static pressure. The QF140 Performance is capable of pumping out 128 CFM at 38 dBA during maximum RPM for extreme performance.

The QF140 Silent has an ultra-low RPM range of 200 to 1,000 RPM. Rated noise levels of 9 to 19,5 dBA is close to being inaudible in most typical PC cases. The 140 mm fan blade will still be able to push 42 CFM of airflow despite being near inaudible.

Both QF140 fans will include molex adapter, mounting screw kit and 6-year extended warranty after registration. The QF140 Performance and Silent has a suggested retail price set at 14,99 EUR (w/o VAT), prices may vary internationally.

Special N.N.V. fans consist of two different frames. The outer fan frame offers mounting points to install the fan inside a case or on a CPU-cooler. The inner impeller frame holds the rotor and the motor of the fan – it’s decoupled from the outer frame by four rubberized dampers. An absolute novelty in the PC business, which allows a very smooth and silent running operation of our fans.

The Special N.N.V. fan series will consist of four 120 mm models. We expect them to become available in stores by the middle of February. The first model to reach us will be the Special N.N.V. Fan 120 PWM. Shortly thereafter the versions with 800, 1,200 and 2,000 rpm will follow. The technical data and the MSRP for all the models can be found below.

With Ryzen 5 now available, the possibility that people will be running stock coolers has gone up considerably. Because of that, I figured today we could take a quick look at the performance of the new Wraith Spire and Wraith Max coolers. I did the same thing last year when the Wraith Cooler was first introduced. So today won’t be a big article, I’m just going to run through what CPUs they work with, compare the differences, and then see how they perform.

When the topic of modding is brought up, LED’s, paint and other cosmetic accessories often come to mind. There are times however, when modding serves a practical, functional purpose rather than just a cosmetic change. Take the issue of system noise for instance. Noise is usually not much of a concern anymore when running low-powered, efficient components but when operating

Even when dealing with an overclocked octa-core Ryzen 7 1700 CPU at 3.9GHz, the Corsair Hydro Series H110i could handle its task with ease, so we have got a maximum of 50 degrees Celsius while running an instance of Prime95 in the Quiet Profile. The noise levels are also very acceptable in this state, since we have measured a maximum of 39.7 dBA, 30 cm away from the test system."

The EU saving madness continues! After light bulbs prohibition and 2-slot toaster prohibition now CPU coolers have to be expensively upgraded!
As you can see very nice, the Noctua NH-D15GDKT gourmet edition cooking pot cooler bottom plate is smooth polished like a fried egg. The plate is connected with six heatpipes to the pot. BTW. the pot is incidentally in the gourmet edition produced by WMF, because cooking pots are a new business territory for Noctua and probably for many other cooler companies such as Antec, Arctic, Cooler Master, Cryorig, Enermax and Scythe.
