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. 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

"The Raijintek TISIS retails at US$69.90 (approx AU$143) making it a bargain from the price point given its performance. I don’t see how you can go wrong with the TISIS; It ticks all the right boxes. It costs fraction of that of a water cooled system while performing equally good thus making it a absolute recommendation from us."

AMD President and CEO, Dr. Lisu Su, took to the stage at AMD's Ryzen Tech Day and opened the event with some official speeds, feeds, pricing information, and benchmark scores from the company's upcoming Ryzen series processors. To date, we've seen a number of leaks with related data and benchmarks, but the numbers and information we'll be presenting here are straight from AMD – they are the real deal, not rumors or speculation. And we've got a couple of surprises and new pieces of information to share as well.

"The 1800X will have a base clock speed of 3.6GHz, a boost clock of 4.0GHz, and a 95 watt TDP. AMD claims the Ryzen 7 1800X will be the fastest 8-core desktop processor on the market when it arrives. The next member of the line-up is the Ryzen 7 1700X. The 1700X has a base clock of 3.4GHz and a boost clock of 3.8GHz, also with a 95 watt TDP. The Ryzen 7 1700 – sans X – is also an 8-core / 16-thread CPU, but it has lower 3.0GHz base and 3.7GHz boost clocks, along with a lower 65 watt TDP."

Reports Digitimes; "AMD will start selling its new Ryzen processors in early March with an initial shipment target expected to top one million units.

AMD's Ryzen processors are manufactured by Globalfoundries's 14nm FinFET process and AMD is expected to release models including 1800X, 1700X and 1700, priced at US$499, US$399 and US$329, respectively.

Motherboard players have already planned over 80 new motherboards based on AMD's new X370 and B350 chipsets and these players are expected to ship nearly one million units initially.

AMD will also release three chipsets for these CPUs: X370, B350 and A320. MSI has designed 15 new motherboards using these chipsets, while Asustek Computer has 10-11, but Asustek is expected to have the largest shipment volume.

AMD CEO Lisa Su also pointed out that the company will also release its next-generation Vega series GPUs, next-generation server processors codenamed Naples, Ryzen processors for notebooks and Radeon Instinct card targeting deep learning applications."

The A-series lineup from CRYORIG may look different, but its great cooling performance makes it fit in with the rest.
"For CRYORIG's first entry into the crowded AIO market, I have to say they have done a pretty good job. It might be missing the typical RGB treatment, and the third fan may make for some possible clearance issues in smaller chassis, though I really do not think either of these are big issues. "

While many enthusiasts love their water cooling setups, there’s still a lot of love out their for air cooling. Even here at eTeknix we have most of our rigs running on air coolers, such as the Noctua NH-D15, and they’ll run circles around many of the AIO coolers on the market, and they’ll run quieter too. Gigabyte knows this, and that’s why they’ve set out to create their own high-end air cooler, which not only promises great cooling performance, but also quiet acoustics and a competitive.

"Noctua today officially announced that it will provide users of its CPU coolers with free mounting upgrade kits for the new AM4 socket of AMD's upcoming Ryzen architecture. The SecuFirm2 mounting-kits are backwards compatible with most Noctua CPU coolers manufactured since 2005 and will be available via resellers and free of charge via Noctua's website after uploading a proof of purchase.

Noctua will offer two different SecuFirm2 mounting upgrade kits for AM4: the NM-AM4-UxS kit for NH-U14S, NH-U12S and NH-U9S, and the NM-AM4 kit that supports most other retail cooler models manufactured since 2005 (NH-C12P, NH-C12P SE14, NH-C14, NH-C14S, NH-D14, NH-D14 SE2011, NH-D15, NH-D15S, NH-D9L, NH-L12, NH-L9x65, NH-U12, NH-U12F, NH-U12P, NH-U12P, SE1366, NH-U12P SE2, NH-U9, NH-U9B, NH-U9B SE2, NH-U9F) except for the NH-L9i/NH-L9a series low-profile coolers. In addition to the NM-AM4 and NM-AM4-UxS, Noctua also aims to offer an upgrade-kit for the NH-L9a later this year.

The SecuFirm2 mounting system for AM4 has been tailor-designed for the new socket in order to ensure optimal compatibility, perfect contact pressure and easy, straightforward installation. Both the NM-AM4 and the NM-AM4-UxS kit include two different sets of mounting bars, which allows the users to choose the orientation of the cooler according to their preferences in order to ensure an optimal alignment with the airflow path inside the case.

In order to obtain the kits free of charge via Noctua's website, users are required to upload a proof of purchase (electronic version, scan or photo of the invoice) of an AM4 motherboard or AM4 CPU as well as an eligible Noctua retail CPU cooler (server and workstation coolers of the DX and DO line are excluded from the free offer). Users who have lost the invoice for their Noctua cooler may write their full name and the current date on a piece of paper, take a photo of the paper next to their cooler and upload it as proof of purchase. Depending on the user's location, shipping will usually take 1–4 weeks.

For users who need the kit urgently or do not yet have a proof of purchase of an AM4 CPU or motherboard, the NM-AM4 and NM-AM4-UxS kits will also be available via selected retailers and e-tailers such as Amazon at a suggested retail price of EUR 7.90/USD 7.90.

Cooler Master are one of the leading manufacturers when it comes to PC cooling hardware, I mean, the they even have “cooler” in their name, so you know they mean business. They’re a popular choice for many system builders, from their budget friendly and rather fantastic Hyper 212X cooler series, right up to their new flagship air cooler, the MasterAir Maker 8. Of course, they’ve also created many great water coolers, and we’re eager to test out their latest one, the MasterLiquid Pro 280, which we have in the eTeknix office today.

So in the past, all of our project build logs have all been for ITX LAN rigs because that’s what I really enjoy the most. My personal main PC has been looking a little dated though and I finally set out to build a new full ATX build. This is an exciting one for me because I finally get to build an orange build and if you can’t tell orange is my favorite color. I’m calling this one Crush both because of the Orange Crush reference and because I hope it crushes all of the games/benchmarks I throw at it. Today I’m going to talk a little about the build it is replacing and start by checking out the case Crush will be in. Keep an eye out in the future as I build and customize the build piece by piece.
