Corsair AirFlow Pro Dynamic LED Display Kit - Corsair AirFlow Pro Dynamic LED Display Kit

"I know that most people who overclock don’t consider that their memory is going to get that hot under stress, and with my first couple of kits of DDR3 I was in that boat. Doing the usual finger test under loaded conditions, I always assessed a cooler running temperature than what my DDR2 would run at. Times have changed and more and more manufacturers are pushing the ICs to either higher levels of speed, or tightening the timings as far as they can go to offer better performance to the end user. Now I run my memory pretty fast normally, and I tend to try to keep my DDR3 at around 2400 MHz for day to day usage. With that, I did start to notice the ICs were warming up, and double checking with my IR thermometer, I was slightly surprised to see 45° or above during the toughest stresses. That put me on the hunt for cooling solutions for the memory. This quest led me to Corsair as I remembered using the old CMXAF1 fan with three 40mm fans in it. I had noticed the new GT kits were getting this new fan with two 60mm fans, so I went to Corsair to look at the options. At that point I ran across the AirFlow Pro Dynamic LED display that harks back to the days of the Xpert sticks that Corsair developed in the DDR days of memory. This AirFlow Pro is part of a three piece kit needed for full functionality, and Corsair has sent all three components so we could have a look at what the newest options in DDR3 cooling and display technology has to offer."

Thermalright Venomous X CPU Cooler - Worst Heatsink Ever? - Thermalright Venomous X CPU Cooler - Worst Heatsink Ever?

... or is it? Read the review and decide yourself.
"Thermalright needs no introduction in the cooling segment but since they are a new arrival on Vortez, it is important to look at what made Thermalright such a significant player when it comes to cooling performance and why they were/are considered the Kings of this competitive market. Thermalright can be considered pioneers in developing large tower coolers, dating back to the 2002, when they entered the business, as CPUs became progressively more powerful and generating more heat. Thermalright's solutions were the answers to the growing need of performance coolers. It wasn't long before they struck a chord in the enthusiast market, delivering outstanding cooling performance using innovative heat pipes and large heatsink designs.

The Ultima 90, which was soon succeeded by the Thermalright Ultra Extreme marked the brand's dominance and lead over alternative solutions. Many tried to imitate them but most failed, hence why we still see the Thermalright Ultra Extreme being such a popular choice even to this day. Did I mention it was released three years ago? However, this was no reason for Thermalright to rest on its laurels, with brands such as Noctua, Tuniq, Prolimatech etc developing new and more efficient heatsinks. So today we have with us the next iteration of Thermalright's flagship CPU cooler, the Venomous X. As the name instigates, we better be prepared for some striking results."
