The Gelid Tranquillo 4 is built around four 16mm diameter copper heatpipes, a stack of ~40 nickel plated aluminum fins and a very unremarkable 1600rpm, 
120mm PWM fan. The heatsink makes use of 'exposed heatpipe base' 
thermal design. 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.

After nearly a year from first announcing the Cu line of full copper coolers PC cooling innovator CRYORIG is now releasing the C7 Cu copper enhanced SFF ITX cooler. The C7 Cu is built from the award winning C7 architecture with one obvious upgrade, the extravagant use of copper for the whole heatsink body. By exchanging for a full copper build from aluminum has allowed the C7 Cu see improvements of up to 15% in thermal performance. The increased thermal performance without increased size is a key advantage of the C7 Cu especially in ultra-compact SFF/ITX builds where space is limited.

www.frostytech.com

Aimed at solving the space limits of Small Form Factor ITX systems, the C7 Cu was set with the task of further improving performance but without increasing size or fan speed. Utilizing higher thermal conductive materials was the only answer for the C7 Cu. Copper is nearly twice as thermal conductive as aluminum but nearly three times as expensive. That’s why copper is normally only used on the most thermal critical components such as heatpipes and heatsink base plates. With the C7 Cu, CRYORIG has swapped out the aluminum elements of the C7 with pure copper. Thermal performance gains are close to 15% when compared to the original C7.

www.frostytech.com

Built on the original C7 architecture, users can except to get the same features such as Zero Interference design on both Intel and AMD boards, included installation tool, and pre-installed 92 mm PWM fan with integrated anti-vibration pads aimed for SFF/ITX systems. The 92mm fan features CRYORIG’s Quad Air Intake system, with additional intakes are placed at the four corners of the fan. This allows the fan to pull air from the sides not just from the top, because in most SFF/ITX systems there’s limited space for air intake between the top of the heatsink and the case side panel.

www.frostytech.com

The C7 Cu is set to release in mid to late April in Asia and late May to early June in the USA and Europe. Pricing is set at MSRP 49,95 USD (-tax) in the USA and 49,95 (vat incl.) in Europe.

NZXT just super-sized their Kraken series liquid coolers, meet the x72 for cases with 280 mm radiator mounts. This new cooler is compatible with CAM software. This allows you to program, customize and monitor this all-in-one liquid cooling solution for your processor. Armed with three 120mm PWM fans and a nice radiator to go with it, the performance is really good, next to being extremely silent, NZXT probably has got the best-LED lighting system implementation in the industry as well.

In a world dominated by closed-loop liquid coolers from Asetek, Aerocool's P7-L240 dares to be different with a custom pump design. RGB LEDs in this cooler's pump head and fans make it stand out in a system, too. We put the P7-L240 to the test with our Core i9-7980XE to see if it can beat the heat.

There is no doubt that Deepcool has been bringing some of most innovative case designs to the market in recent years. We’ve seen the likes of the Tristellar, then the Quadstellar, and now we have the Dukase Liquid. It is essentially a fairly typical mid-tower design, but with an integrated liquid cooler and flow meter. At £150, however, can it do enough to prove a worthwhile investment?

be quiet! looks to recapture the high-end air-cooling crown with the new and improved Dark Rock Pro 4. It is a dual-fan, dual-tower design that will certainly turn a few heads. However, it won't be due to noise. Silent and powerful, this new challenger looks to dethrone Noctua's NH-D15.

We test and review the be quiet! Dark Rock 4 CPU Cooler. Armed with totally black looks and a very silent fan, the new Dark Rock 4 might be able to impress you. It offers 200 Watts of cooling power, enough for most processors and a bit of overclocking, it, however, remains ridiculously silent.

We review another be quiet! Dark Rock series cooler, this round the PRO 4. Again with totally black looks the flagship cooler comes with two radiators, two fans and takes up that cooling performance towards 200 Watts of cooling power, enough for any processor and some tweaking of course as well.

be quiet! has built an excellent reputation for its air coolers over the years, with previous models in the Dark Rock series boasting impressive thermal performance as well as low noise levels. The downside, however, has always been the unnecessarily fiddly installation method which surely must have put off many a potential buyer. With its new Dark Rock 4, be quiet! is hoping to provide the excellent performance we have come to expect, but with a much easier installation process.
