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. 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.

"Performance was on par with similar size coolers. The Pure Rock is a nice jump beyond OEM cooling, but still a sizeable notch below the much larger (and signifcantly more expensive) dual tower coolers with 140mm fans. However, it did prove that it can stand up to a fair amount of heat when the load is cranked up. For daily use in a mild gaming or multimedia rig, this cooler will be right at home. If you really overclock and frequently load your system, be quiet! certainly has a variety of larger, higher capacity coolers from which to choose.”

The LV12 is the result of extensive research and development. The engineers designed a slim and compact heat sink which avoids compatibility issues with higher RAM modules while maintaining a high performance capability. More about the performance and handling you can find in our review.

Over the years, Phanteks has created quite a name for itself among PC enthusiasts for creating some of the best air coolers and fans available. Last month at CES we got to check out their suite and get an early peak at some of their latest products. Today, we’re bringing you a review of one of the products we saw, the Phanteks PH-TC14S; a compact dual-tower cooler which promises to deliver nearly all of the performance of it’s bigger brother the PH-TC14PE, in a much smaller package and price.

We test and review two new coolers from Noctua, the NH-D9L and NH-U9S CPU coolers. These small puppies can be used with any motherboard and CPU combo but focus on Micro ATX and Mini ITX. They are small, deadly silent but do pack enough punch to even cool a Core i7 4790K. And yes, you can even overclock a bit as well. Yup, that would be Noctua for ya.

Corsair is bringing out three new All In One liquid cooling systems. H80i GT (120mm radiator and two fans in push/pull) and H100i GTX (240mm radiator with two fans) occupy slots towards the upper reaches of the product range, and right at the pinnacle we have the new H110i GT. Employing a 280mm radiator and dual 140mm fans, the H110i GT marries the size of the H110 with features we have previously seen in H100i Extreme.

This is a neat video showing the fundamental difference in heat conductivity between solid copper and a heatpipe. Picked this up at Computex a while back. Note how quickly the top of the heatpipe increases to 56.1C in the 60seconds after submersion into the cup of hot water!

"We already have some Noctua gear in our Home server in the shape of a Noctua NH-L12 Low Profile Cooler and we are very pleased with its performance. We have also recently review theNoctua NF-S12A Series Fan and liked that as well. Noctua pride themselves in making the humble cooling fan and taking the detail to the extreme. The result tends to be top quality in ways you would not imagine. We have the NH-D9L CPU cooler for review today,will we like this too? Let’s read on."

All-in-one liquid coolers are proving to be ever more popular. In response, Deepcool is setting themselves apart with their all new Gamer Storm Captain 360. Featuring a unique LED-illuminated, reactor-style pump with a visible coolant channel and a 360 mm radiator, it has some serious specifications, and style.

For their modest size, the Phanteks PH-TC14S and Cryorig C1 both perform well despite using different orientations. The PH-TC14S is a split tower heatsink while the C1 is a short top-down cooler.

Austrian company NOCTUA, known for their silent yet efficient processor coolers, released last year their behemoth NH-D15 cooler. The successor of their successful NH-D14 had to have even more performance while keeping the noise level still comfortable for day to day living room operations. This cooler is designed to handle the heat output of the latest hexa and octa-core crunching processors without breaking a sweat, thus for people who don't overclock or for those that don't run high wattage setups this cooler is pure overkill. Time to pop the package and see what Noctua has in store for us with their flagship NH-D15 tower CPU cooler.

Smaller form factor systems keep on becoming more popular. With more and more full-featured smaller motherboards coming out many people are ditching their larger towers for these smaller form factor systems. With a small form factor system you only have a certain amount of space though. This is where the new Noctua NH-U9S comes in. Compared to other larger Noctua coolers that we have tested the NH-U9S has a smaller 95×95 mm footprint so it clears RAM and PCI-Express slots on most Intel and AMD motherboards, including mini-ITX motherboards. The cooler has a height of only 125 mm as well so it makes it very versatile in fitting inside smaller cases. We know Noctua for great performing CPU cooler, will this smaller cooler fit in the same category? Read on as we find out!"

Judging by the number of Facebook messages and emails we receive by many of you it seems that there's a small argument out there between people who choose to build low-cost mini systems piece by piece and the people who prefer either one of the tiny micro PCs manufactured by Gigabyte, ASRock, Zotac and others or a NAS server. Well each system has its pros and cons and in the end it all comes down to what usage you want one for but if you're looking for superior processing power between all three and you care not about electrical requirements/costs and size then building your own mini PC is really your best bet. On the other hand however if you do care quite a bit about the other two then a micro PC or even a NAS server would be far more suitable for the task (especially if you're just looking for a download server). Now although two out of these three solutions come pretty much ready out of the box so you don't have to concern yourself with anything that's not the case when building your own mini PC and one of the first things one has to look for is a low-profile CPU Cooler capable of keeping the temperatures of the CPU in check. One such CPU cooler is the Argon AR05 by SilverStone which we have here with us today.

"With the PH-TC14S and PH-TC12LS, Phanteks is obviously tackling the high compatibility market in two different form factors while making use of the some basic components. Both the PH-TC14S and PH-TC12LS utilize the same six 6mm heatpipe configuration and aluminum finned towers, but while the 14S uses the U-shape for twin towers, the 12LS uses a single tower with C-shaped heatpipes for an overall 75mm height."

We review the Noctua NH-D9L, a dual tower cooler with a low profile design that allows it to squeeze into even small factor systems. It brings the benefits of tower-style cooling airflow to 3U chassis. It also comes with a NF-A9 cooling fan that promises low noise ideal for 3U applications like home theater systems.

ID-Cooling may be a new brand, but they made a splash with their introduction of the ultra-compact T60-SFX chassis. As one of the most compact Mini-ITX cases out there and consisting of nothing but aluminum while featuring a unique shape, we were eager to get our hands on it.

Noctua’s NH-D14 and NH-D15 dual-tower coolers are excellent CPU coolers because of their size but many overlook the fact that part of their effectiveness also lies in their design. As a dual-tower solution, the NH-D14 and NH-D15 have the convenience of further spaced-apart heatpipes compared to a single tower heatsink where they bunch up closer together. This means heat is …
