BeQuiet's Shadow Rock Slim heatsink stands 159mm tall and has a footprint of 130x74mm so it will fit most motherboards where space between the memory slots and videocard is on the tight side. The Dark Rock 3 stands 159mm tall and weighs in at 976 grams. Built around six, 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and a large aluminum fin stack, the Dark Rock 3 is rated to heat loads up to 190W TDP. Bearing close resemblance to the Prolimatech Megahalems Frostytech tested a few years back, the Eclipse IV heatsink is a bifurcated-tower cooler from heatsink manufacturer 'X2 Products' a brand offshoot of Spire Corp. The Eclipse IV heatsink is rated to a maximum cooling capacity of 220W by its makers and at first glance has the gravitas to back that claim up.
Weighing 1,320 grams with both fans installed, Noctua's NH-D15 heatsink is big. It stands 162mm tall and has a footprint of 151x161mm so prospective buyers will want to measure their case clearances first. It's six heat pipes are soldered to the nickel plated copper base plate and aluminum cooling fins; overall the fit and finish is top notch. Standing just 69mm tall, the Raijintek Pallas CPU cooler is probably the largest low profile heatsink Frostytech as tested in recent memory.

Weighing just over a pound and having only a single 120 mm fan, the Scythe Kotetsu still manages to compete and beat much of the larger competition.

“The Be Quiet! Dark Power Pro 10 750W power supply features sexy styling, a modular setup, an 80Plus Gold certification, and an Overclocking Key (what?!?) that promises to literally change the power delivery inside this unit. We’re certainly intrigued, so let’s take a closer look at this power supply from Be Quiet! and see if it can deliver the goods to a demanding consumer base.”

Bearing close resemblance to the Prolimatech Megahalems Frostytech tested a few years back, the Eclipse IV heatsink is a bifurcated-tower cooler from heatsink manufacturer 'X2 Products' a brand offshoot of Spire Corp.

The Eclipse IV heatsink is rated to a maximum cooling capacity of 220W by its makers and at first glance has the gravitas to back that claim up. The cooler ships with two 122mm PWM fans mounted in a push-pull configuration, each spinning at 2000-800RPM. The fans use an interesting, wavy impeller blade geometry that we haven't come across before, too bad neither the translucent fan blades or frame are illuminated.

"Zalman delivered the Z3 Plus case in white for review. We're pretty sure Zalman won't be happy with this review, but the show must go on, as they say."

"This may come off as a bit harsh, and maybe even a little "elitist," but reality is what it is in today's market. Being able to sample cases from around the globe gives me access to all sorts of design ideas and what can be had in a mid-tower chassis these days. While Zalman and the Z3 Plus do cover all the basics and most of the features that users need in a chassis, it seems the attempts were a bit weak in design and implementation."

"The Enermax AeroOdio CP-006 notebook cooling pad features a 220mm fan and incorporates their signature DreamBass® audio chip. The AeroOdio can support up to 17” laptops and uses a large metal mesh surface for wide area cooling with their 220mm fan. The CP-006 has a manual fan speed control that varies between 620-720 RPM while keeping at a relatively quiet 17-24 dBA. The AeroOdio only weighs 3.3lbs and has a plastic edging that houses the integrated speaker with DreamBass® audio chip, dual USB 2.0 inputs, power in, volume control, and fan speed control switches."

Banchetto K is the starting point for overclockers and those who want to expose their system. The solution from Microcool offers plenty of room to install components and you can even mount E-ATX motherboards. Banchetto K is made of polyurethane, which makes it robst and at the same time lightweight.

In the past the Korean company Thermolab has been able to surprise with high quality products, which were able to compete with the best in corresponding product categories. With the Bada 2010 the company has been working on a compact tower cooler and we're rather curious to find out how well this model actually performs.

Alphacool International GmbH has announced the launch of a custom GPU service. Until recently the high cost of developing specialised full cover watercooling blocks for graphics cards has forced manufacturers to focus only on producing blocks for the higher end cards. Alphacool now have the ability to fill this gap in the market by producing full cover waterblocks for any non-reference or lower end graphics card. The graphics card cooler comprises of three parts as shown in the image below.

www.frostytech.com

Firstly the waterblock is designed around the ‘core concept' but is used in conjunction with the custom made base plate that is made specifically for each type of GPU ensuring a perfect fit. A custom made back plate is also included in the package at no extra cost.

www.frostytech.com

A specially designed cooling block will serve two uses, first to cool the core of the GPU and secondly to cool the copper plate which is fixed to the aluminimum base (no water is in contact with the aluminimum at any point). The mosfets on the card will be cooled to the same level as they would be on an air cooled graphics card running its fan at full speed while the core and ram would see a temperature drop in the region of 30-40C.

www.frostytech.com

The block is designed to work universally, so when you upgrade your card you will be able to buy just the plates you need. Alphacool will be launching this range based on any Nvidia card 7XX or above or any AMD card 2XX or above. Nvidia 750 Ti Solutions for reference cards will be available at launch for 59€ including the back plate. Nvidia Titan Black solutions will also be available for 79€ including back plate.

www.frostytech.com

For customers looking for blocks for non-reference cards or cards that we have not already covered with the standard blocks there is now the option to send your card into Alphacool. By using state of the art 3D scanning technology to measure your GPU Alphacool can custom make you a cooling plate. As a reward for sending the card in Alphacool will send the customer a free cooling set for their GPU (Plate, block and back plate). The GPU cooler will also be added to the product range so other customers with the same card can also purchase the block.

Alphacool will also be producing a unique “multi-bridge” connection system for customer’s with more than one GPU. The bridge will effortlessly connect the waterblocks as well as letting the customer illuminate the Alphacool logo with 5mm LED’s.

To support the modding community Alphacool will be publishing the dimensions of the “multi-bridge” cover so you have the ability to make your own. Also if there is enough demand for a specific brand or logo Alphacool will be making custom covers available.

If you are interested in taking part in the scheme please contact Alphacool directly at www.Alphacool.com

The Silverstone Tundra TD03 is one of the most unusual 120mm water coolers I’ve seen, it stands out in a market that is crowded by Asetek water coolers that are all pretty much identical. Silverstone have a legendary reputation for their engineering prowess and there’s no way they’re going to import a 3rd party design for their cooler. It was this unique design that meant I had to get one in for review, I wanted to see what all the fuss was about and I really wanted to see if Silverstones design was better than all the other models that are available on the market these days. Water cooling is big business these days, what was once the plaything of the enthusiast system builder can now be bought as an off-the-shelve product, installed with ease thanks to the closed loop / all-in-one designs and in many cases you can find a good 120mm water cooler for less than a high-end air cooler. Water cooling has a lot of benefits, it can often cool more efficiently, it’s got great potential for overclocking and many water-cooled systems are quieter than their air-cooled counterparts.

"Major Taiwan-based thermal module makers expect fast growing demand for thin heat-pipes from smartphone and tablet vendors, and are expanding production capacities in preparation to start shipments in the second half of 2014, according to Taiwan-based equipment makers.

Sony Mobile Communications took the initiative to adopt thin heat-pipes for its Xperia Z2 smartphone, and Samsung Electronics and HTC are expected to follow suit, Taiwan-based supply chain makers indicated.

While graphite plates have so far been used to dissipate heat in smartphones and tablets, copper-made thin heat-pipes carry the same production cost but have higher heat-dissipation efficiency, the makers said. As LTE smartphones support higher data transfer capabilities, demand for heat dissipation is accordingly higher, which is the main reason for using heat-pipes, the sources noted."

Noctua is an established player in the CPU cooler space, offering high quality solutions that cool your processors without killing your eardrums. Their U-series coolers combine unrivaled cooling performance with an innovative design to ensure quiet operation and motherboard compatibility. The flagship product of this line, the NH-U14S, is composed of a single aluminum-finned radiator with six embedded, nickel-plated copper heat pipes running through a copper base plate. For performance testing of the NH-U14S cooler, we put it up against other high-performance liquid and air-based coolers. With a retail MSRP of $75.99, the NH-U14S CPU cooler has a premium price to match its premium size and cooling potential.

Quote: "After reviewing so many dual-tower CPU air coolers, I had some reservations going into the review. Sure, the NH-U14S' single tower is 150mm wide and almost double the thickness of a standard fan, but the single 140mm fan included just didn't seem like it would be enough. Those thoughts quickly evaporated once I started putting the unit through it paces. Noctua designed the NH-U14S cooler as a high-performance unit that was compatible with any Intel LGA115x or LGA2011, or AMD motherboard. At this, they succeeded amazingly well."

True to the motto "innovated - not imitated" the premium manufacturer Thermalright presents three new, innovative coolers. In addition to the new top model of the "Value" series, the True Spirit 140 Power, these are the True Spirit 120i, especially developed for selected Mini-ITX systems, as well as the Silver Arrow IB-E Extreme, a high performance special-edition of the recently released Silver Arrow IB-E.

The True Spirit 140 „Power“ presents itself not only visually updated. Instead of six 6 mm heatpipes as before, the "Power" is equipped with 8 mm thick high end heatpipes. This guarantees the top model from the "Value" series an even better cooling performance.

Especially for fans of compact Mini-ITX systems, Thermalright has developed the True Spirit 120i. In many Z87/H87 boards from Asrock, MSI and Gigabyte, the PCIe slot sits directly next to the processor socket. The True Spirit 120i is equipped with offset cooling fins, making it the only powerful tower heatsink with 120 mm fan that fits on these motherboards.
