DeepCool's Gamer Storm Lucifer K2 heatsink is a revised version of the original Gamer Storm Lucifer heatsink, which Frostytech tested about a year back. The Lucifer K2 heatsink only differs in that it's not nickel plated and ships with a slim profile (20mm thick)120mm fan which makes the heatsink a little more accommodating on confined motherboards. The Gelid Antarctica heatsink features a nice narrow footprint which 
measures 141x74mm with the 140mm fan installed. The slim profile 
should make the Antarctica cooler more compatible with a larger range of 
motherboards. The Noctua NH-D9L is a mid-sized heatsink suitable for use in 3U height computer chassis where low noise CPU cooling is desired. It's compact stature makes it ideal for 3U rack mounted computers in a recording studio, office environment or even book-sized miniITX cases. The Shadow Rock LP is a 75mm tall low profile heatsink rated for heat loads 
up to 130W TDP.  It's built around four 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and 
relies on a single 120x120x25mm I've been playing with IBM's Watson Analytics, running Frostytech's test data through the wee cloud to see what it can predict. Here are some of the results.

Noctua is one of the leading cooling manufacturers in the world. Time and time again they’ve proven that they can deliver the highest quality products, with class leading and award winning cooling and acoustic performance. Of course, more often than not, this premium performance and quality come with an equally premium price tag, but as the saying goes “you get what you pay for.”

Antec is one of the biggest names in the PC component market, with many years of experience in creating chassis, cooler, power supplies and more. With Antec having created so many products over the years, it’s more than likely you’ve owned a few of their components over the years, so it’s great to see them continue to push the limits. Antec has been a little behind in the cooling market recently, as their last range of Kuhler H20 products didn’t exactly capture the imaginations of the market, but their latest versions, the H1200 Pro and the H600 Pro look set to change that.

"It has been quite a while since we’ve reviewed a product from Reeven so we were quite excited when they told us they would be sending over their flagship Okeanos (RC-1402) CPU cooler. This cooler features a pretty large dual tower design, two cooling fan, six hefty copper heatpipes, and a pretty sleek look. Reeven tells us that this cooler was designed with gamers and overclockers in mind so it should be able to handle some pretty hefty thermal loads as well. Let’s see if Reeven brings the entire package with the Okeanos."

With both AMD and Intel, the stock coolers that they bundle with their CPUs seem like they have been the same forever. There have been changes in the Intel cooler over the years but AMD has stuck with it, mostly because their mounting system has been consistent forever. Well this year at CES AMD announced changes in theirs. They brought their new Wraith cooler to CES and were showing off the performance. Well last week they sent out their new cooler along with the AMD FX 8370 CPU. We have tested the FX 8370 before but it does give me a chance to see how the new cooler performs. So today I’m going to test the new coolers cooling and noise performance as well as the old AMD cooler to see how they compare.

Wed: 02/03/2016Topic: Cooling / Heatsinks    PermaLink has just posted another review. Last week we have taken a look at the Scythe Fuma cpu cooler. Fuma is made of two towers connected via six heatpipes to the baseplate. The twin-tower structure prevents mutual heating of the heatpipes while enhancing heat dissipation to the fins.

All-in-one (AIO) water cooling units have brought the performance and silence of water cooling to the masses with the simplicity of installing an air cooler. AIOs offer simple installation without the need to bleed the loop. Simply attach the hardware and power cables and you are all set. Recently, water cooling component manufacturers have upped the ante a bit by …

Why does it say "super slim" on the package? Because it is. The SilverStone Tundra TD03-SLIM does not only have a slim radiator, but also a slim fan.

As it turns out, AMD wasn’t done making announcements back at CES 2016. Today we’ve got news of some more new APUs, processors, fansink coolers, motherboard updates, and we’ve gotten our hands on an AMD Wraith cooler for some in-house testing.

In addition to the A10-7890K announced at CES, AMD also has a trio of additional APUs / processors coming down the pipeline -- the A10-7860K, the A6-7470K, the Athlon X4 845 and even a new cooler dubbed "Wraith" as well...

We have the A40 AIO CPU cooler from the Cryorig A-Series for review today. We are not going to beat around the bush, we really like these guys, they are trying to rock the boat and the consumer always wins out in this situation. Either from Cryorig getting it right, which they are gaining a reputation for, or due to the competition improving what they do, as stated, either way you win.

I've always wanted to test one of these out... for the moment you'll have to make do with Phoronix's look at the Seek Thermal Imaging Camera.

"If you have ever wanted a thermal imager to get an idea for the hottest areas of your PC, look how to improve the thermal efficiency of your server room or house, or other purposes, you've likely noticed how thermal imagers are generally quite expensive. A lower-cost solution that's also very versatile is the Seek Compact Thermal, which can attach to your Android smartphone or tablet and turn it into a thermal imaging solution paired with the ease of use of being able to save the captured video or still images to your device."

"Tim Plunkett, has recently used its wealth of additive manufacturing expertise to produce a range of superior quality heat-sinks... The revamped 3D printed components possess complex internal architectures, which could not be replicated using other manufacturing processes."

"As part of the Technology Strategy Board funded SAVINGs project, Plunkett Associates turned to the Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) process in order to engineer the perfect heat-sink geometry. The company produced a range of 3D printed designs based on the unique characteristics of the DMLS process. Each heat-sink was first produced in virtual form and simulated using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software, in order to assess efficacy.

Once virtual testing was complete, the top five heat-sinks were then built by 3T RPD using DMLS and physically tested to confirm the accuracy of the virtual tests. All five models showed a significant improvement over a standard extruded heat-sink.

The success of the heat-sink project demonstrates yet another important industrial application of 3D printing technology."

"Recently SilverStone blew us away by showing what the possibilities are from a design perspective with an AiO. We were so impressed that their TD02-E made our best of 2015 AiO list. While the cooler was aesthetically appealing it did leave something to be desired in the performanceequation. Today we take a look at another cooler from SilverStone, this one wholly different altogether. Designed with tighter spaces in mind, follow along as we check out the TD02-Slim and find out if SilverStone was able to pump some extra performance into a much thinner form factor."

This is new. "The Core P5 wall-mount chassis is designed for use in three different ways: Wall-mount, vertical, and horizontal placement. Built for customization that reflects the makers’ personality, it allows for adjustments to the look of the chassis while ensuring outstanding cooling performance. Users can hang it on the wall as decoration, take it to wherever they want and display their builds vertically or horizontally."

Core P5 wall-mount chassis enables users to build a complete high-end system, whilst supporting up to either 480mm radiator liquid cooling, or 140mm case fans, with a long graphic card at the same time, and simultaneously providing the best visual effects as well as increasing the CPU’s case modding potential. Most importantly, it has the capability to deliver an outstanding cooling efficiency throughout the entire case."
