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.

Thermaltake has a solid reputation for their high-end AIO water coolers, with the Water 3.0 in all its variants being one of the most popular on the market today. Now things are about to get even better with their latest model, the Water 3.0 Riing RGB 240. Packing various tweaks and improvements on their previous designs, such as the new fan controller system and the hugely upgraded Riing RGB 120mm fans, we’re really looking forward to seeing what the latest Water 3.0 from Thermaltake can really do.

Corsair has finally released their ML series of PWM fans, in 120mm and 140mm. What makes these fans different is their bearings. They use magnetic levitation. In theory, these fans should never wear out. Both sizes have square frames, so they will fit handily on radiators. You can also use them as replacement fans for all in one coolers. Here we shall review Corsair’s new ML Pro series.

Water coolers often steal much of the hype when it comes to keeping your CPU in check, but there are many high-end air coolers out there that can keep up with your needs when it comes to overclocking while offering quieter performance than most AIO or custom loop systems can hope for. With brands like be quiet! and Noctua dominating the high-performance air cooling market, Cryorig has a tough battle ahead, but they think they’ve got the product to do it with their R1 Ultimate.

Furhtermore the price is very aggressively chosen, which make us curios to find out how this cooler perfoms.

Alphacool, the long-established German liquid cooling company, knows exactly how tough it can be to select the correct components to build a custom loop for a PC. Their answer lies in a selection of 18 different kits in a product line called Cool Answer that offer radiators ranging from 120mm to 480mm in a variety of sizes along with a choice of different pumps.

The specific kit we have on review here is the Alphacool NexXoS Cool Answer 240 DDC XT which employs a 240mm copper radiator that is 45mm thick (that’s the XT part of the name) along with a Laing DDC pump (yup, also in the name), a NexXoS XP3 CPU block and a 5.25-inch bay reservoir.

When it comes to computer parts and accessories there are few if any companies that can compete with the breadth of Thermaltake’s offerings. Here at ThinkComputers we are very familiar with most all of Tt’s products including of course their excellent cooling products. In fact for some time their Water 3.0 Ultimate was the highest performing AIO liquid cooler we ran through our bench. Of course not a company to sit idle at the top, Tt has now broadened their horizons extensively and entered the highly competitive custom water cooling segment. While they offer a very complete product line up that allows the builder to fully customize their cooling setup with individual parts, Tt also offers complete DIY kits to make things a little less complex for the meant more novice watercooler looking to get their feet wet. And that brings us to today’s review. After much anticipation we have finally gotten our hands on one of Tt’s new custom AIO watercooling kits, the Pacific RL360 D5 RGB! This kit comes specced out with a full complement of standard water cooling gear picked out and packaged into a single simple brown box. Follow along as we find out if this kit is really all you need to be a custom water cooler; as well as just how much performance is packed into that single brown box!"

"The new Silent Pro 14 case fans from Gelid did impress us positively because they are able to drive plenty of airflow while staying silent enough. The PWM feature means that it is not mandatory to have them connected to a fan controller in order to regulate the speed, but the fan RPM will be modified continuously based on the load of the system, when plugged in to the motherboard; PWM profiles can be also altered via the system BIOS in order to have a perfect balance between noise and cooling performance."

"The Wraith is a significant upgrade over AMD's outgoing thermal solution, offering lower noise and improved thermal performance. It isn't the quietest cooler I've tested, but inside of a case the noise output should be pretty minimal. AMD claims 39 dBA output from the fan, which is about midway between the idle and load numbers from my testing. I could push it to over 44 dBA, but fan speed/noise will depend on the user's motherboard fan profile, too."

Air cooling is big business, with the majority of systems running some kind of stock or tower air cooler to get the job done, and this is perfectly fine as air is more than capable of running a systems cooling needs, at least for most people. Up from that, you’ve got AIO water coolers, offering increased cooling performance that can keep your system running cooler and quieter, as well as giving you headroom to overclock your system. However, today we’ll be going to the top level with custom loop water cooling hardware from Raijintek, taking a look at the latest components in their Atlantis series.

Heatsink designs are driven by the fundamental principle that a larger surface area equates to better heat dissipation than a smaller area. Factoring in componential consent, modern aftermarket CPU tower heatsinks had to get creative to compensate and dial-in the efficiency needed, hence the rise of dual-tower cooler designs. By isolating the two ends of the heatpipe set into two …
