Noctua NH-U12S is a tower-type CPU air cooler with 158mm in height. The cooler is designed with 45nm fin depth to ensure that the cooler does not block any of the DIMM slots for installing memory kits- with or without tall heatspreaders. The height of the tower cooler is also designed in a way to ensure it fits in most cases. As usual, Noctua comes with its well-known SecuFirm2 mounts for Intel LGA 2011 and 115x sockets, along with AM3+, AM2+, FM1, FM2 and FM2+ AMD socket compatibility.

“Today’s high demanding games can cause serious heat issues with improperly cooled graphic cards, so what do we do when they start to overheat? Look into water cooling? Not if your graphics card uses a non-referenced PCB. The question is, what other options do we have in order to better cool the GPU and memory? Arctic has a solution with the Accelero Xtreme IV 280(X), which is an upgraded air cooling solution that cools the GPU and memory utilizing 5 heatpipes and a custom rear heatsink.”

"It's been some time since our last sample of this nature, but now V3 Components is trying its hands at thermoelectric air cooling. Let's take a close look."

The Enthoo Primo was Phantek's first entry into the case market, and the company is now throwing the line's smaller brother into the frey: the Luxe. It features the same look, an interesting feature set, and comes in either black or white, along with some nifty lighting element.

Thermaltake is shaking things up with their non-interference line of CPU coolers which includes the NiC C5. This single-tower, dual-fan offering not only beats the heat, it also offers unobstructed access to all DIMM slots. So if you like stylish memory kits with tall heatsinks, Thermaltake's NiC C5 has you covered.

"If you are on a tight budget, but you still need cooling, the V20 is your best bet. If you love your music (or in-game music) and can deal with something that is at least 300% better than your laptop speakers, while also keeping your laptop cooler than the V20, the SP will suit you. If you are a heavy gamer on your laptop and it is screaming all day long, the TM will reign it in. I never imagined that one of these coolers would ever perform so well. All three of these coolers stand the test of time under Thermaltake's banner and I would gladly recommend them to any and all.”

"Hewlett-Packard has introduced a new supercomputer server system cooled by warm water. HP describes its Apollo 8000 as “the world's first water-cooled supercomputer with dry-disconnect servers, delivering liquid cooling without the risk.”

The technology is based on work HP did with the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) on the Peregrine supercomputer.

Water cooling is 1,000 times more efficient than air. According to HP, compared to air-cooled systems the Apollo 8000 can provide up to 4 times more teraflops per sq ft, 40 percent more FLOPS/watt and save more than 3,800 tons of CO2 annually."

"The fans I compared to the Pure & Silent Wings 2 are be quiet!'s direct competitors. The Noctua and Phanteks fans in the comparison are all meant to be very quiet at max RPM's and they are for the most part. The be quiet! fans do not out perform them in sheer power, but they do beat them where it counts: Noise to air ratio. The Silent Wings 2 have the highest airflow to noise ratio of any fan I have personally seen or used. They are more than enough to keep a CPU cool under decent overclocked settings while adding nothing to the accumulated noise. The competitors are noticeable when there are no other noise producing components in a system. In the event that you don't want noise unless you are gaming or otherwise noise occupied, there are PWM versions of the Silent and the Shadow fans allowing silence to occupy office work for those of more sensitive hearing and keeping everything cool when stressing the computer with gaming.”

“Aftermarket CPU Air Coolers flood the market with many options and styles today. With the vast number of options, we know that competition is fierce. Today, we are going to be looking at the Enermax ETS-N30 CPU cooler that was designed for the mid-range users who aren’t looking to spend a great deal of money. The Enermax ETS-N30 CPU Air Cooler sports a 92mm blue LED fan with a copper based heatsink that not only looks good, but also fits the bill for those in a budget crunch. Let’s take a look at the Enermax ETS-N30 CPU Cooler and what is has to offer.”

“Today we are looking at two liquid cooling units from Enermax that recently joined in on this market. We have the Enermax Liqtech 240 and Liqmax 120S AIO cooling units on the test bench. While choosing AIO units should be based on cooling performance, sometimes we find that aesthetics and software can be a deciding factor as well.”

"Last month Intel launched their Z97 chipset, essentially an evolution of Z87, which in many cases brought new features such as SATA Express and M.2 compatibility to the mainstream desktop market. There was of course no new CPU at that time with the existing socket 1150 processors working without issue in the new boards. Since then though Intel launched (along with some lower spec models) the Core i7-4790K, a model which sits at the top of their mainstream platform. Today we see how it compares to various other models when installed on Gigabytes Z97X Gaming 5 and paired with PowerColors new dual core 290X Devil 13."

The Noctua NH-D15 is firmly footed in the excellent performance of the NH-D14 model. The NH-D15 is not a "new" air cooling technology but rather an evolution of the old. The new claim to fame with this heatsink unit is that it has an expanded heatpipe layout, plus some other bells and whistles that Noctua hopes make it king of the hill.

With the Apogee XL CPU Block, Swiftech is looking to cover all of the angles consumers are looking for in a new liquid cooling component. While Swiftech has historically used rather subdued styling, the Apogee XL features a unique design implementing an LED logo and design with four included color changes and is available with black or clear polycarbonate body."

“XSPC has been known to bring attractive product to the market usually at an equally attractive price tag. These two factors have made them very popular over the last few years. Radiators, reservoirs, tubing and fittings all were released with a good amount of fanfare. None of those came close to the buzz created by the Photon D5 combo. XSPC decided to follow up the incredibly popular Photon D5 with a sought-after DDC version. The smaller size, good head pressure and sturdy stain resistant glass has us excited to see what it can do and how well it can fit into a beloved small form factor case.”

Upgrading your PC is a great way to boost your performance, but what if you could take your PC and make it look truly epic! Well thanks to the awesome team at Cooler Master you can give your system a gargantuan makeover with the modular Cooler Master HAF Stacker chassis, one of the biggest cases on the market today. One lucky winner will not only bag themselves the HAF, but also an extra section for the HAF, a powerful Vanguard 850W Fully Modular PSU and Nepton 280L high-performance CPU water cooler.

At Computex 2014, NZXT announced the next-generation of Kraken liquid coolers - the NZXT Kraken X31.

www.frostytech.com

NZXT's 140mm platform saw compatibility as a sticking point for many smaller form factor cases, the Kraken X31 addresses this by downsizing to a 120mm closed loop liquid cooler.

www.frostytech.com
The X31 includes the same integrated variable speed pump that keeps noise to a minimum during use. The Kraken X31 is also fully covered by our industry-leading six year warranty. In addition to the cutting edge hardware and a robust warranty, our legacy Kraken Control software has been replaced by the Kraken+ module within our new software suite, CAM.

www.frostytech.com
The NZXT Kraken X31 is available immediately for pre-order exclusively at the NZXT Armory Store for $79.99 with an anticipated ship out date of mid-July.
