ThermalTake has been a leader in cooling solutions for a very long time. It seems that every time they come up with a new cooler it is better than the previous one. Over the years I learned to trust ThermalTake products as they rarely fail to perform to my expectations. One of the All In One cooler series "Water" has

The Liquid Freezer II does things differently to most AIO watercooling loops by incorporating a small blower-style fan into the pump assembly, providing cooling to nearby VRM components which can go without adequate airflow when using loops from other manufacturers.

Cooling on the CPU is provided through a custom-loop Corsair Hydro X system, sporting a 360mm radiator and Corsair’s powerful ML120 RGB fans. Alongside the custom loop is a multitude of RGB lighting, with fans, a waterblock, a reservoir, the motherboard and LED strips all around the case emitting their own lightshow.

"Researchers have identified a metal that conducts electricity without conducting heat, contradicting the Wiedemann-Franz Law which basically states that good conductors of electricity will also be proportionally good conductors of heat. The metal is metallic vanadium dioxide (VO2). To uncover this bizarre property, the team looked at the way that electrons move within vanadium dioxide's crystal lattice, as well as how much heat was being generated. The reason for this appears to be the synchronised way that the electrons move through the material."

Head over to EKWB’s webstore and you will see they have a dedicated section for kits of liquid cooling hardware. The EK Classic RGB S360 kit that features in today’s review uses hardware from the budget Classic family and is supplied with a CPU block, a 140mm reservoir, an SPC pump and a 360mm radiator. The cherry on the cake is provided by the RGB that is a feature of the reservoir, CPU block and all three Vardar fans so you can expect high end cooling and loads of RGB at an attractive price.

For as long as I've been aware of thermal cameras I have wanted one. In addition to being a really cool piece of technology it is uber useful. In my work at we review a LOT of hardware, pretty much anything that uses electricity. That means heat, and at times quite a bit of it. Wouldn't it be handy to see the heat that any given object puts off? You could isolate sources of heat and cold, find out if one part is hotter than another and get its exact temperature within 0.06 degrees C. For the more analytical among us it would be cool to see if those larger heatpipes actually convey more heat no pun intended. Introducing the E6 from Flir, a Thermal Imager for your needs.

In a market saturated with RGB products, Silverstone has actually done more than simply stick increasing amounts of LEDs on another generic liquid cooler. Instead, with their new Permafrost PF240-ARGB, they not only have pretty lights, but also deliver top-tier performance. How's that for a twist!

" The new QL140 fans from CORSAIR are a real step-up in terms of lighting compared to many other models, while the 34 addressable LEDs do allow creating unique effects. Most fans do have a single layer of configuration for the inner/outer ring, but this time we get separate zones (front/rear), that can be enabled or disabled independently. For minimizing the cable clutter, the multi-fan kits do also bring the Lighting Node CORE module, that does not need an additional module to get the fan RGB system fully operational and gets connected straight to an available USB 2.0 header.

The D-Link DCH-S161 is roughly a 2.7" square white box that is about 1.2" thick. It uses (2) readily available AA batteries which are included to get you started, and houses a built in 90dB alarm siren. The unit comes with a sensor probe with integral cable that is about 6 feet long. It is wall mountable and is operable through the mydlink app, Google Assistant and IFTTT. Surprisingly Alexa is not included on this device.

By now most of you know of the company Be Quiet! and their heatsinks, fans, and power supplies. Early on when they first came to the US market they were involved in our LANs as a sponsor and we have covered a few of their heatsinks in the past. But they have grown in popularity a lot in the heatsink market especially with their all-black styling, quiet fans, and good performance. Especially with a few of their heatsinks in the SFF community and with their high-end heatsinks for those of you dedicated for the best possible cooling performance without the downsides of All in One coolers like pump noise and the potential for leaks. Well I have had their Dark Rock Slim sitting around the office and as I clean things out for the end of the year I didn’t want to miss checking it out. It is designed for those of you who need a thinner cooler for memory, motherboard, and case clearance reasons. Today I’m going check it out and see how it compares to a few other 120mm air coolers.

Today we are testing the Deepcool Gamerstorm Assassin 3, a double-tower cooler which wants nothing less than to reach the top of the air cooler charts! At the top, the air is known to be thin, so we are curious how the Assassin 3 will perform. Deepcool says Assassin III is the fiercest Assassin. In the review, there is also the 360 degree view and a new video with fan noise. You should not miss this cooler test!

Today at we take a close look at the Intel CPU Heatspreader and clarify whether it is worth the effort to grind and polish the CPU IHS or not. The latest high-tech measuring equipment is used, as it is used in aerospace and Formula 1. First of all, there will be some surprises! The following workshop will show you exactly which ones.
(Graphical elevation of the flatness measurement of an unprocessed Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 CPU in an UNclamped state. Variance = 0.0224mm)

Here's what happens the moment the socket applies force to the CPU IHS:
(Graphical elevation of the flatness measurement of an unprocessed Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 CPU in a CLAMPED state. Variance = 0.0466mm)

The one tricky bit to all of this is how the ~70lbs force applied by the mounted heatsink distorts the IHS further, potentially evening out some of the distortions caused by the socket clamping forces. Still,nice to see inspection machine put to good use!

"With great power comes great responsibility", of course, I am talking about TDP (Thermal Design Power) of internal computer components like CPU and GPU. I feel like every six months a new CPU arrives on the market and it is faster and offers more Cores than the previous one. But no matter what CPU comes out we still need to …
