See all Noctua heatsink reviews available [X]
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 DeepCool's Maelstrom 240 is a self contained CPU liquid 
cooling system consists of a dual fan, 240mm wide aluminum heat 
exchanger and combination pump head / skived copper waterblock. With Frostytech's synthetic thermal test platforms applying up to a 200W heat load, only we can accurately rank how the Maelstrom 240 liquid cooler stacks up DeepCool's Gamer Storm Lucifer K2 heatsink is a revised version of the original Gamer Storm Lucifer heatsink, which Frostytech tested about a year back. The Lucifer K2 heatsink only differs in that it's not nickel plated and ships with a slim profile (20mm thick)120mm fan which makes the heatsink a little more accommodating on confined motherboards.

”One word really sums up this cooler - Wow! Just a simple wow! Designed for low profile case applications, the Dark Rock TF hits the mark for a case of any size. You get style and performance in a fairly compact package. It looks good from any angle, and really begs to be shown off in a case with a large side window. It would be a shame to cover it up! Performance was impressively in the range of a few larger dual-tower air coolers, and not far from a few higher-end liquid coolers. The Dark Rock TF is perfect for your daily driver or an overclocked gaming rig. It easily tackled the heat generated from overclocking in my Phanteks Enthoo Primo test case, which is a very large case with plenty of airflow. I would expect to add a couple degrees for a small case with less airflow. Regardless, the Dark Rock TF proved that it is a worthy opponent in the battle against heat.”

Thu: 03/03/2016Topic: Cooling / Heatsinks    PermaLink has just posted another review. Last week we have taken a look at the Cryorig A40 Ultimate AIO watercooler. The Cryorig A series is the first hybrid liquid cooler with an extra fan on the pump unit. The CRYORIG HLC Airflow Fan can be orientated in both push or pull directions. No matter where the hot spots are around your CPU, be it overclocked RAM or a high-end GPU card, or hot Voltage Regulators just point the Airflow fan in the direction you need!

"While Swiftech launched their all-new Prestige AIOs, they have not forgotten the more value-oriented market either. Enter the H220 X2, which offers enthusiast quality water-cooling at a more attractive price. Having exceptional performance and expandability, it is definitely an attractive option."

Alphacool's new quick connect couplers with the name "Eiszapfen" are the next block in the "Eis" series. High quality and impressive features makes any watercooling system back to a piece of high-quality and practical!

A quick coupling is used everywhere where expandability, flexibility and cleanness play an important role. These compact couplings have a 1/4 "thread on both sides with which they are compatible with all standard connections.

By pulling down the outer ring these couplings can be disconnected. Both sides close immediately completely tight so that no water can escape. Thanks to the special N.D.S.L. Technology (no drip, no splash, no leak) a leak, drip or splash out of the water on opening the lock is excluded. By assembling again, both sides must click into each other audibly and shut themselves tightly by a double O-ring, which is simply compressed when plugged together. Likewise, the mechanism was designed for durability to ensure a secure connection even years.

Many quick couplings usually also affect the flow rate. But Alphacool has found a way to resolve this issue. A high flow rate is maintained at these quick couplings!

Alphacools quick couplers are available in two finishes. In deep black and fully chromed these add seamlessly on every system.

Technical Details:
Dimensions (L x D): 64,6 x 23,9mm
Material: Brass
Colour: Chrome / Deep Black
Thread: 2x 1/4" IG

Reports Digitimes, "Samsung Electronics has adopted heat-pipes for its Galaxy S7-series, and this is expected to become a trend in the smartphone industry bringing business opportunities for heat-pipe makers. However, related production equipment suppliers pointed out that the makers have not added molds specifically for producing smartphone-use heat-pipes signaling demand has not yet grown to a sufficient level.

Samsung has launched variant models of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. One adopts Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 AP and only sells in North America. The other version uses Samsung's 14nm Exynos 8890 AP and is selling to other markets. The model with Qualcomm's solution uses heat-pipes.

However, Samsung has not confirmed its smartphones' specifications.

Although heat-pipes have already become prevalent in PC products, the cooling solution is still an emerging trend for the smartphone market as most smartphone vendors still prefer graphite for cooling along with help from metal chassis or software.

Since smartphone heat-pipes require customized designs, while smartphones have a rather short life-cycle, most heat-pipe makers are conservative about investing in new molds."

With the recent news of Skylake CPU's being pushed up to 7 GHz, one can only begin to think of ways to overclock their CPU and take performance to the next level. Any easy way to do so is by swiping out your old CPU cooler for a new one. Without going to the extremes of custom liquid cooling and LN2 testing, one could easily swap in an all-in-one liquid cooler or a air cooler. Today we have the preiveldge of testing the Noctua NH-C14S C-Type Premium CPU cooler, while adding an additional Noctua NF-A14 PWN fan for additional performance, let's see how it performs!

"CRYORIG sort of came out of nowhere last year! We took a look at their flagship R1 Ultimate CPU Cooler and were very impressed and their H5 Universal did not disappoint as either! Today we will be taking a look at the H5 Ultimate. The H5 Universal was made to be just that, universal so it had a very thin fan. The H5 Ultimate on the other hand is made to give you the best performancepossible so it has a very thick and large fan. Besides that the H5 Ultimate features a very large single tower design with CRYORIG’s own proprietary Hive Fin structure, four 6 mm heatpipes, and of course that great fit and finish we expect from CRYORIG. Let’s take a look at see if this cooler deserves to be called “Ultimate”."

MINIX has been producing ultra-small form factor systems and accessories for a few years now, featuring ARM and Intel-based technology. The latest device to come from the company, the NGC-1 we will be showing you here, is one of MINIX’s more powerful devices – relatively speaking – which packs an Intel’s Braswell-based Celeron processor. Braswell is the follow-up to Intel’s BayTrail SoC, that’s manufactured on Intel’s tri-gate 14nm process. Like BayTrail, Braswell is a low-power architecture, designed for entry level 2-in-1 devices, laptops, and small form factor system. Along with the Braswell-based Celeron N3150 inside the system, the MINIX NGC-1 also features 4GB of RAM, a 128GB M.2 SSD, and a 64-Bit edition of Windows 10. The device's form factor, while still small, also affords more connectors and IO that something as small as the Compute Stick...

”The Corsair Carbide 400C is an amazing little case. Not many cases this size can handle an array of motherboards from a Mini-ITX up to an E-ATX, all while supporting liquid cooling with room for a 120mm radiator at the rear, a 240mm radiator at the top, and a 360mm radiator in the front. Extra long GPUs? Multiple GPUs? Not a problem for the 400C. And it does it without breaking a sweat. It feels like a much larger case. And I honestly don't miss the optical drive bays. Your system can have two hard drives and three SSDs, or all five drives can be SSDs.”
