I've been playing with IBM's Watson Analytics, running Frostytech's test data through the wee cloud to see what it can predict. Here are some of the results. The Dark Rock TF has an upside-down pyramid sort of profile, measuring 
140x165mm at the top and 98x102mm at a height of 22mm above the CPU. It ships 
with two identical 135x25mm SilentWings fans that operate 1400RPM and move 
upwards of 68CFM at 1.85mm/H2O Scythe's Mugen Max heatsink weighs 870grams and stands 166mm tall. The 
heatsink is constructed around six 6mm diameter copper heatpipes which are soldered to a 2mm thick nickel plated copper base plate. The heatpipes are 
swaged into a 113x145x84mm aluminum fin stack which is roughly broken up into four nearly-separate cooling towers. In this review Frostytech is testing the Phanteks PH-TC12LS heatsink, a top-down low profile heatsink that stands 74mm tall and weighs in at 500grams. The PH-TC12LS has a footprint about the size of the 120mm PWM fan that rests atop its black-painted aluminum fins.  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.

PC Chassis come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, styles, price ranges, and with just about anything you may need. Much of it depends on what you want out of the case and what you want to spend on a case. Features should be price dependent, but quality shouldn’t be. Today Legit Reviews has the opportunity to look at a new case from Corsair, the Corsair Carbide 100R Silent Edition. The Corsair Carbide 100R Silent Edition is a very budget friendly case retailing for only $59.99...

Corsair has nailed it again with the release of the HG10 A1 GPU bracket, which is recycling the stock blower fan for optimal VRM cooling and combines it with the usage of one of the available AIO CPU coolers in order to bring excellent cooling performance for our 290/290X R9 card from AMD. Depending on the water cooler selection, we would also be able to use a CrossFire setup which will take minimal amount of space in term of occupied slots. The only limitation for this design is the fact that it only works with OEM, original PCB AMD-designed cards and not with custom versions but we can always check the full compatibility list on the Corsair web page to see if our card is included.

Silverstone's two newest all in one water coolers -the Tundra TD02-E & TD03-E- are meant to go head to head against some of today's biggest players. But can these two AiO's manage to achieve the high performance and low acoustics necessary for domination?

Compatible with all of the current Intel and AMD sockets, the be quiet! Shadow Rock LP has an interesting (but not necessarily unique) design for a low profile heatsink cooler."

Sun: 07/05/2015Topic: Power Supply    PermaLink
When it comes to power supplies there are always a few names I always recommend and Corsair is typically at the top of my list. I still find it quite impressive that Corsair has transitioned from a memory to producing some of the best cases, power supplies, AiO watercoolers and more. Corsair’s HXi Series power supplies and designed with gamers and enthusiasts in mind. Each HXi model features 80PLUS Platinum certification, Corsair Link compatibility, and a Zero RPM fan which means it will not even spin up at medium and low loads. Today we will be taking a look at the flagship unit the HX1200i, which if you can guess is the 1200W unit. Let’s jump in!"

Aside from the inclusion of a variable speed pump, the NZXT Kraken X41 improves from it’s predecessor, the Kraken X40, by adding a thicker radiator with a more dense fin array which accounts for 36% more surface area. NZXT has also given the Kraken X41 extended tubing to ensure compatibility with all installation environments. Included with the Kraken X41 is a FX140 V2 PWM fan which according to NZXT is more powerful, quite, and durable than it’s predecessor. Most importantly, the Kraken X41 has a 6 year warranty, which just goes to prove how confident NZXT is of the Kraken line.

Last week, we tested the SilverStone Tundra TD02-E, which delivered great performance at a great price. With a smaller radiator, how will the TD03-E step up?

A couple weeks ago we got a chance to take a look at the Shadow Rock LP cooler, designed to fit in a low profile chassis, and today we’re going to look at the recently released Dark Rock TF. The Dark Rock TF – TF meaning Top Flow – is the latest cooler by be quiet! It’s designed to fit in cramped spaces, standing approximately 163mm tall, which means if you’ve got space problems inside your chassis, you may be able to squeeze the Dark Rock TF inside. The whole idea behind the ‘Top Flow’ design, is to not only allow it to fit in a cramped space, but to allow the dual 135mm SilentWings PWM fans to cool the components that surround it...

A quiet system in a smaller form factor is our followup to the Quiet ATX Gaming Build Guide posted in the last couple of weeks. It is another high performance rig, but still quiet enough to be just about inaudible even atop your desk. Your family will never know that you're gaming on this machine unless your sound effects are on speakers and they can see the action on your monitor.

The first of our quiet gaming build guides for the season is an ATX tower featuring the highly efficient NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980. Join us as we plan, build, and stress test this beast, while trying to keep it quiet enough to satisfy our own high standards. A sneak preview: We managed to keep it under 20 dBA@1m under all test conditions!

Whether you’re an overclocking enthusiast or a gamer looking for a cooler quieter solution to cooling your system, a good custom CPU cooler can be one of the most important components in your system. It can solve over-heating issues, noise issues and even make your system look cooler and more personalized. In this report, we’ll be taking a look at the NiC L32 by Thermaltake which promises to not only solve all those issues, but do so without breaking the bank. Can this affordable, compact cooler provide sufficient cooling for even the most demanding overclocks? Let’s find out!

Have you just built a mining rig featuring four high end graphics cards or are you currently configuring a system incorporating dual AMD R9 295X2 graphics cards? Regular KitGuru readers will have seen our recent review of the Overclockers UK Infinity Vesuvius system – which could demand almost 1,200 watts at the socket. If you are building a similar system, then a 1,500 Watt power supply would be a wise investment.

“In the past few years, the Closed Loop Cooler has advanced liquid cooling much further into the mainstream market. Today we’re looking at the latest, the Thermaltake Water 3.0 Ultimate. It has a 360mm radiator with lots of cooling potential, and it looks very impressive. Let’s take a closer look and see how it fares in testing.”

With the new Water 3.0 Ultimate, Thermaltake is making the biggest performance change we have seen under the current circumstance. While the design of the radiator still fits in the 27mm thick, 24 fpi aluminum CLC mold we are accustomed to, Thermaltake enlarges the Water 3.0 Ultimate to a 360mm radiator. This is a full 50% larger than the 240mm radiators that are common, and the increased surface area means increased dissipation and better cooling potential."

Thermaltake recently came out with a new case called the Suppressor F51 that featured noise-reduction features and a look that was very similar to the Define R5 that was was introduced by Fractal Design in December 2014. Many noticed that the case was damn near identical on the outside with some people saying that Thermaltake copied the design and others saying who cares as there isn’t that much you can do on a PC case to make it look different. No matter what your stance in on any plagiarism taking place, you have to admit that the cases look damn similar. Read on to see what you think...

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery then it is clear that Thermaltake thinks highly of the Fractal Design Define R5. The new Thermaltake Suppressor F51 doesn’t so much pay a nod to the R5 as borrow all its best ideas, work on the weak areas and then add in a couple of new features.

www.frostytech.comIn 100 years we will look back at our meager existence and when someone quietly asks the question "how did Skynet get started?", the answer could very well go like this: "Once, there was this chassis, the Tristellar...". Deepcool has created a crazy looking chassis which weighs more empty than most ITX systems as a whole. All this with the goal to be a showcase of design & function at the same time.
