Technically speaking, the Coolermaster Ergostand III supports laptops with footprints up to 15 Noctua's low profile NH-L9x65 heatsink stands just 64mm tall and has a very compact footprint of only 95x95mm. The NH-L9x65 is designed to cool some fairly intensive Intel sockets, along with the full spectrum of AMD processors and APUs. Compact CPU coolers can be a little tricky to install, but Noctua long ago laid down the framework of an excellent motherboard mounting system,, so the NH-L9x65 is a breeze to work with. 

The Noctua NH-D9DXi4-3U is a mid-sized heatsink designed specifically for lower noise cooling of Intel Xeon processors in 3U height computer/server chassis. It's compact stature makes it ideal for rack mounted computers in a recording studio, video editing suite, operations control center... The 920gram Scythe Fuma heatsink is constructed around six 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and a pair of aluminum fin stacks that measure 104x130x37mm (HxWxD) in size. The heatpipes are liberally soldered to a chunky nickel plated copper base plate, this plate helps to more evenly conduct heat away from hot-spot ridden multi-core CPUs. While Scythe doesn't overtly market its heatsinks as

"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!

Having recently experienced an older Corsair CPU watercooler literally pop it's hose and spray coolant shmoo all over the box and leak across the floor (wasn't even installed!) I'm leaning back towards air coolers these days. This failure analysis of a Swiftech H220 on LinusTechTips.com from a few years back highlights that age old ism... the more complicated you make it, the easier it is to break/fail. Thankfully, when air coolers fail, they at least kind of fail-safe. If they're still partially attached, the metal can still dissipate some heat.

The idea behind the Corsair Commander Pro control unit is pretty straightforward. If you build a new PC with a bunch of Corsair peripherals that use the Corsair Link ecosystem you will find you are spoiled for choice. You could well use a Hydro All In One liquid cooler on your CPU (and perhaps another Hydro on your graphics card), a handful of HD120/HD140 RGB fans, a Link enabled power supply and a few Node lighting strips. Add that lot together and you may well run out of USB headers on your motherboard, and will also have a bunch of extra cables and control units to install and keep tidy. This is where the Corsair Commander Pro comes into the equation. You simply connect the captive USB 2.0 cable on the Commander Pro to an internal header on your motherboard and power the device with the captive SATA cable. Both cables are long enough to give a good degree of flexibility when you install the Commander Pro inside your PC. Install the latest version of Corsair’s Link software and you’re ready to start connecting your accessories.
