Today, we test several brand new RGB products from Cooler Master. We examine the Cooler Master MasterFan Pro 120 and 140 Airflow RGB fans as well as the Cooler Master MasterFan Pro 120 Air Balance RGB 3 in 1 Kit including the new Cooler Master RGB LED controller. In the following review we compare the cooling performance of the fans in several constellations and with over 50 pictures as well as 2 videos we show a lot of details and the great effects that Cooler Master has successfully implemented.

Today we are reviewing the Scythe Mugen 5 CPU Cooler, the eighth revision of a Scythe mainstay. We reviewed the Scythe Mugen MAX CPU Cooler and it scored highly. We respect Scythe, they have been around cooling for enthusiasts from the very beginning of the modern worlds view of PCs. These days, if it doesn’t have any RGB lighting or rocket thrusters, it’s not up to date.

FSP looks to break into the entry level cooling market with the Windale 4. This simple tower cooler may appear bland, but don't let it fool you: It packs a huge punch in terms of price to performance.

Back when Intel announced their Core-X Series high-end desktop (HEDT) processors one really stood out. It was at the top of the product stack, having more cores and threads than any other Intel consumer desktop processor before it and with its price tag it is the most expensive Intel consumer desktop processor as well. The processor I am talking about is of course the Core i9-7980XE. It is Intel’s flagship Core-X series processor packing in 18-cores, 36-threads with 27.45 MB of L3 cache. The chip has a base clock of 2.6 GHz with a boost clock of 4.2 GHz, and two cores reaching up to 4.4 GHz with the new Turbo Boost 3.0 technology. This chip like the 14 and 16 core chips in the Core-X series has a higher TDP of 165W. If you are building an X299 system this will be the ultimate processor to get, but is it worth its $1999 price tag? Read on as we find out!"

The Koolance VID-NX1080 GPU water block offers two top options - acetal and acrylic - with excellent build quality, good value for your money, and an optional backplate that puts most others to shame. It does fall short on relative performance, but will be a very strong consideration for those on a budget.

HardwareOverclock.com has just posted another review. Last week we have tested the Noctua NH-D15 SE-AM4 cpu cooler on a Ryzen 7 1700. The SE-AM4 version is a dedicated special edition for AMD’s AM4 (Ryzen) platform featuring the latest SecuFirm2 mounting system for AM4.

"Here at ThinkComputers we’ve been fans of Raijintek cases for quite some time. They offer some really unique designs and they are one of the only case makers coming out with all aluminum cases on the regular. Even better they price these cases pretty competitively. That is exactly what they’ve done with the case we are taking a look at today. It is an all aluminum ATX chassis with dual 3mm-thick tempered glass side panels for just $89.99! The Thetis also has some pretty unique features and has one of the smallest footprints for an ATX case so let’s jump in and take a look!"

The manufacturer Antec from California is a real industry size in the PC world. One of the trends nowadays is to offer so-called all-in-one water coolers. Antec not only manages to access products from well-known OEM producers, but also develops corresponding coolers. With the Antec cooler H2O H1200 Pro, we have the latest and biggest variant available for testing.

My interest in Small Form Factor builds has grown over the years as my office space has slowly filled up and had less space and each time I take a PC to a LAN event. We have built our Lunchbox project builds all the way back to when nothing was available but that isn’t the case anymore. There are countless case options, tiny power supplies, ITX motherboards with full sized features, and even video cards that will fit in tight spaces. Most recently with the AM4/Ryzen introduction, I was extremely excited to finally have the chance to run an ITX build with a proper high-end AMD CPU. Up until recently, you could really only do it with their APUs. Well even months after the Ryzen launch ITX boards were basically not available, but that is all starting to change with boards getting in stock from Gigabyte, Asrock, and Biostar. Well to celebrate that I decided to bring together a collection of at least most (I’m sure someone will contact me asking for X brand) of the ITX sized coolers that currently have AM4 support. A few of the coolers I got in are pushing the limits of ITX. But today I’m going to check each of them out, make sure they fit an AM4 ITX board (and ram), and test each cooler for noise and temperatures using Ryzen CPUs from the R7, R5, and R3 platforms. Hopefully, we will get a better idea of what fits, what doesn’t, what looks amazing, what is quiet, and what will work with each level of performance. It’s a lot to take in so let’s go ahead and get started.

"With the ten-core / 20-thread Core i9 7900X CPU having a 140 Watt TDP, it's a lot to keep cool with air cooling. Even more, with the soon-to-launch new Core i9 models, you really need a beefy heatsink fan if wishing to avoid water cooling. In this article are some tests with different Noctua heatsinks. Besides being able to cool these 2017X processors, the other requirement too is that they fit within 4U space requirements. The heatsinks benchmarked today included the Noctua NH-C14S, NH-U9S, Noctua NH-D9L, NF-A9 PWM fan, and NF-A14 PWM fan."

"We recently looked at several Noctua cooler options for Intel's Core X-Series while today the tables have turned and we tried out Noctua's TR4-SP3 heatsink that is capable of cooling the high-Wattage Threadripper and EPYC processors with air cooling."

Man destroys his aluminum heatsink by applying Coolabratory Liquid Pro thermal interface material.... Always good to read instructions, this TIM contains Gallium which is incompatible with aluminum.

As announced at Computex earlier this year, Noctua have been working on their next-generation of cooling fans for the last few years and they, along with a host of new accessorises, are finally set to launch. The new cooling fans themselves are collectively known as the A-Series and today we will be looking at the models most likely to be used by home consumers - the 200mm 'NF-A20' and the slimline 120mm 'NF-A12x15'. Whilst Noctua's chosen naming convention can initially seem bewildering, it's somewhat necessary given the wide range of cooling products that they actually produce and sell to varying markets.

While we have seen plenty of cases from Game Max over the last few months, the Iceberg 240 marks the first time we have seen a CPU cooler from the company – be it of the liquid or air variety. What makes the Iceberg 240 so appealing is definitely the price, as at £59.99 this is the cheapest 240mm liquid cooler I have reviewed in the last three years.

The Raijintek Thetis is a larger version of the Metis, allowing you to use a full-size ATX board, PSU, a fairly long GPU, and even a 240 mm radiator. While all that may not sound interesting on paper, considering the compact size of the Thetis, we are eager to take a look.

Over the weekend we started seeing stories that AMD Radeon Vega 64 air cooled models could get 43.5 MH/s at just 130 Watts of power when mining Ethereum using Claymore’s miner. His numbers got us interested in seeing what was going on though, so we grabbed our well known Kill A Watt P3 P4400 series power meters that we've used for over 15 years and our Vega graphics cards to see what all the hubbub is about. We'll also be trying out the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled edition for the very first time for this article. We just got this card and want to see how far we can push it!
