The Gelid Tranquillo 4 is built around four 16mm diameter copper heatpipes, a stack of ~40 nickel plated aluminum fins and a very unremarkable 1600rpm, 
120mm PWM fan. The heatsink makes use of 'exposed heatpipe base' 
thermal design. 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.

"We recently took a look at the Editor’s Choice award winning H150i PRO from Corsair. The cooler surprised us with improvements on all sides, from performance to aesthetics, it moved Corsair to the next level in all-in-one watercooling systems. While that cooler is certainly the flagship of the line there were revisions to the previous top dog, the H115i, as well. This 280mm radiator equipped unit features all the same catch phrases as it’s new big brother minus some radiator surface area. Follow along as we find out what this versions updates do to improve the already good H115i!"

Cryorig has a CPU cooler for all the different Form Factor and TDP requirements out there on the mainstream CPU market today. They need to be considered mainstream themselves too, with big impressions in a short lifespan, and they’re still living up to promises and commitments. It’s fair to say we like them and would recommend any system builder looks at their lineup before making a decision on a CPU Cooler.

Für unser neues Gehäuse haben wir eine kompakte Wasserkühlung gesucht, die schnell zu montieren und von der Leistung für einen Core i7 8700K ausreichend ist. Da kann man beruhigt zu einer guten All in one Kühlung greifen, sofern es das Geld zulässt. Dass der Markt mit fertigen Kühlungen übersättigt ist, brauchen wir nicht zu erwähnen, da fast jeder Hersteller ein passendes Modell anbieten möchte. Nur die wenigsten Kunden wissen aber, dass die meisten Versionen nur gelabelt sind, also es sich um 2-3 Pumpenhersteller handelt, die dann in den verschiedensten Designs und mit individuellen Lüftern ausgestattet werden. So macht es kaum einen Unterschied, für welche Marke man sich entscheidet, es macht die Optik und die Sympathie aus. Da wir gerne zu Modellen von NZXT greifen, haben wir für unser neuestes Projekt die Kraken X62 Kühlung gewählt, die wir euch heute etwas näher vorstellen wollen.

"Japanese cooling expert Scythe presents the significantly improved “Mark II” version of its Kotetsu CPU Cooler. While keeping the basic design of the predecessor, Kotetsu Mark II comes with both visual and technical improvements. One of the key advances is the offset, where the heatsink is not centered but moved to the side and the rear. This allows the CPU Cooler to increase the distance to the first PCI-Express slot, offering unchallenged compatibility to VGA card with outsized cooling solutions and avoid clearance issues with memory modules with large heatsinks at the same time. Kotetsu Mark II is able to deliver a significant performance boost compared to the first version, thanks to an optimization of the manufacturing process. Visual improvements include the new aluminum-look top-cover and nickel-plated heatpipes and base-plate. The Kotetsu Mark II is bundled with a high-quality PWM-fan from Scythe’s Kaze Flex 120 PWM series. In spite of the significant improvements of performance and visuals, Kotetsu Mark II price is remaining to assure the best possible price-performance ratio.

The Mark II features four nickel-plated copper heatpipes and solid copper-baseplate, assuring great performance and corrosion protection. The aluminum fin stack and the heatpipes endings are covered by a slick aluminum-design top-plate. Kotetsu Mark II is the first Scythe CPU Cooler that utilizes the new asymmetrical design, where the heatsink is offset to rear as well as 10 mm to the side. Scythe achieves unique compatibility advantages thanks to this design. The increased distance to the first PCI-Express slot and RAM modules assures exceptional compatibility to both large VGA cards as well as RAM modules. In addition to that, total height of only 154 millimeters and weight of 645 grams allows Kotetsu Mark II to easily fit in any mainstream PC case.

The supplied case fan has been upgraded to the latest model from the high-quality Kaze Flex 120 PWM case fan series.

This fan incorporates Scythe’s self-contained liquid Sealed Precision FDB bearing, which reduces friction and wear significantly and offers average lifespan of 120.000 hours! Smooth and flexible fan speed control is achieved thanks to PWM fan control, which allows anything from ultra-silent operation at 300 RPM up to impressive performance at 1.200 RPM. This speed range offers steady airflow from 28,2 to 86,93 m³/h. Kaze Flex 120 PWM features rubber-insulators at the corners, which prevent the transfer of vibration, resulting in greater stability and lower noise levels.

Scythe equips the Kotetsu Mark II with the third generation of the Hyper Precision Mounting System (H.P.M.S.). The H.P.M.S. III is the latest mounting mechanism, which is based on pre-assembled metal mounting bars with spring-loaded screws, in order to prevent uneven distribution of pressure. The compatibility list covers more than just the major sockets, including Intel® Sockets LGA775, LGA1150, LGA1151, LGA1155, LGA1156, LGA1366, LGA2011(V3) and LGA2066 as well as AMD® Sockets AM2(+), AM3(+), FM1, FM2(+) and AM4. The package contains all the required clips for mounting the Kotetsu Mark II, one fan clip set, user-manual as well as a package of thermal grease.

Scythe Kotetsu Mark II with the Model-No. SCKTT-2000 is available as of today with the MSRP of 29,50 € (VAT/Taxes not included)."

We have been experimenting with AMD’s Ryzen 5 processors here at HotHardware and while they have already proven to be a great value, we wanted to explore some different mainstream cooling options to see what kind of additional goodness we could extract from the processors. All-in-one liquid coolers are not quite as nice looking or as potentially high-performance as a custom built system that can employ hard line tubing and multi-waterblock arrangements, but they are still a step up from many air coolers and don’t require the same hefty investment. This makes all-in-one liquid coolers very appealing for mid-range gaming setups where maximizing performance per dollar is often the goal. Fortunately for us, Corsair answered the call...
