Today we have tested on the Enermax T.B. Silence ADV 120 and Enermax T.B. Silence ADV 140 fans. The ADV version is a new development of the well-known T.B. Silence fans from Enermax, which should be up to 20 percent quieter than the predecessor. We are curious how good these fans are in practice.

I know the 9900k has been rumored until the cows come home but in reality, it has only been a recent development in the core race that really heated up once AMD dropped RYZEN shortly followed by Threadripper. With that we had the 6 core 8700K the close ancestor to the 9900k in the original Coffee Lake lineup. Now come to today where Intel has moved up to an 8 core part with HT for 16 total threads to take on the top mainstream part from AMD the RYZEN 7 2700X. This is a direct shot across the bow to AMDs lineup now today we are here to judge is it a hit or miss?

Now please don’t take this as a doom and gloom article as it is quite the contrary. The thing is, while all manufacturers would love for us to write articles which blow proverbial rainbows out their bums, we do have to keep a bit of levity about ourselves and stay unbiased which is hard at times being an enthusiast and trying not to get caught up in the hype. In all fairness to Intel, I am excited about this chip and even more so that with the launch debuts the return of STIM which is their term for soldered IHS which means no more delidding.

The European brand SilentiumPC presents the new Spartan 3 PRO RGB HE1024 as a cost-effective alternative to stock CPU coolers, which is intended for professional system builders and DIY projects on a budget. This extremely compact and lightweight cooler utilizes four 6 mm Heatpipes and aluminum heatsink for excellent cooling performance and oversized Sigma PRO RGB 100 PWM-controlled fan for quiet operation.

Its new RGB Illumination system lights up the fan with stunning yet discreet colors and effects. All the major motherboard RGB systems are supported, including Asus™ Aura, ASRock™ RGB LED, EVGA™ RGB and MSI™ Mystic Light as wells as manual control via the included Nano RGB controller, making the Spartan 3 PRO RGB a ready-to-go RGB solution.

In spite of its compact size and lightweight at 476 g, efficient heat transfer and dissipation is assured. This has been achieved thanks to its four high performance Heatpipes with 6 mm diameter and by implementing the HE technology, where the Heatpipes are in direct contact with the CPU heat-spreader.

SilentiumPC offers the Spartan 3 PRO RGB with a pre-installed Sigma Pro RGB 100 mm fan. Being a PWM-controlled fan, it is able to operate at a wide fan speed range from 800 to 2.000 RPM. This feature allows the users to tweak the fan curve using the motherboards towards full performance or silence.

Installation of the CPU cooler is extremely easy and does not require any tools during the process. All that has to be done, is simply to apply included high-conductivity Pactum PT-1 thermal compound on the CPU, put the mounting bracket into the motherboard and lastly clip the Spartan 3 PRO RGB on.

The new Spartan 3 PRO RGB HE1024 is going to be available in the next days at 23,90 EUR (MSRP, incl. VAT) in Europe.

Our first review of the Enermax LiqTech TR4 cooler was great, and in fact, I highly recommended it as a great option for Threadripper systems. However, shortly before I began this review, some news reached me of premature failures and even leaks, along with an online statement from Enermax. "We are fully aware of the leaking issue and have stopped …

When building a new system, you have either the choice of the stock Intel or AMD cooler (if provided), or travel down the aftermarket route. This can open up a host of options. Air or liquid, size and price all need to be considered and it can be tricky to peg down the one most suited for your chosen need. Antec has attempted to address this with a competitively priced 240 mm AIO liquid option – the Kühler H2O K240. This cooler supports a multitude of different CPU sockets but does look less flashy than the host of available RGB LED options. At £59.99 it looks to be offering good value for money, but today we find out if that is the case.

The C7 Cu by CRYORIG takes the C7 and makes it better by using an all-copper design. When it comes to Mini-ITX heatsinks, this one sits at the top in terms of weight at 675 g. The copper not only adds a great deal of weight but also increases performance and makes it feels like a premium heatsink.

"Cooling module maker Chaun-Choung Technology (CCI) has disclosed that Japan-based Nidec is planning to acquire up to a 48% stake in the company through a tender offer at NT$108 (US$3.50) per share.

As clients are having stricter demands on cooling products' specifications, Nidec is looking to form a partnership with CCI, which has advanced technologies for heat pipe, heat sink and vapor chamber products, by taking a major stake."

"We are back with another RGB review! RGB accessories have really taken over this past year and one of the most popular RGB accessories has to be RGB fans. Raijintek’s first RGB fan offering, the AURAS 12 RGB did not impress us that much, but they are back with the Iris 12 RGB. These 120 mm fans feature multiple RGB LEDs in the O-type fan frame, which is diffused to create a really great look. On top of that these fans come with a 6-channel controller and remote to easily switch between the 20 different LED modes. Are these the ultimate RGB fans? Read on as we find out!"

Okay, I can admit it, I might love Small Form Factor builds a little more than I should. But I have yet to find the perfect setup, the smaller they get the harder it is to pack all of the hardware need into them, especially for a gaming-focused LAN rig. When I did my original SFF Ryzen cooler testing last year I realized some a few hard truths (okay I knew them, but it cemented them). No matter what you do, a larger cooler is going to perform better and if you can wedge water cooling in a SFF build that will work even better. But to get the really small and portable rigs those aren’t an option. For cases like the GEEEK A30 or the In Win Chopin you really only have a few options and even the Wraith Stealth isn’t possible in some cases. So the Cryorig C7 and the Noctua L9 series have been the main options. Noctua has been bringing out new options including an AM4 specific model that I recently reviewed, but Cryorig hasn’t been leaving things alone as well. They have the C7 Cu, Cu is the periodic table symbol for copper. That is because they have taken the already popular and powerful C7 design and made the same cooler out of the much more efficient material. So today I’m going to put it through the same tests as before and see just how well the new cooler performs. You guys ready? Cu after the page break…

After recently testing Arctic's Twin Turbo II on, we are now focusing on the successor Arctic Accelero Twin Turbo III. According to Arctic, it should offer the same cooling performance as its predecessor, but without the use of thermal glue. You can read in the following review whether Arctic has managed this and if you have to make compromises.
