See all Noctua heatsink reviews available [X]
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 DeepCool's Maelstrom 240 is a self contained CPU liquid 
cooling system consists of a dual fan, 240mm wide aluminum heat 
exchanger and combination pump head / skived copper waterblock. With Frostytech's synthetic thermal test platforms applying up to a 200W heat load, only we can accurately rank how the Maelstrom 240 liquid cooler stacks up 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.

Thu: 10/27/2016Topic: Cooling / Heatsinks    PermaLink has just posted another review. Last week we have taken a look at the SilentiumPC Grandis 2 XE1436 CPU cooler. The Grandis 2 XE1436 is the pinnacle of SilentiumPC CPU cooler lineup. This dual-radiator monster offers stellar cooling potential for the hottest processors on the market.

MSI looks to break into the CPU cooling market with the Core Frozr L. Offering their distinct GAMING series looks with solid performance and exceptional build quality, it looks to give the competition a serious run for their money.

Keeping your system cool and quiet is always a welcome bonus, as lower temperatures can often mean improved hardware lifespan and stable performance, while lower noise is never a bad thing, as you would rather hear your movie, music or your gaming rather than the whirling noise of your fans. Cryorig already produces some of the best coolers on the market, but their mid-budget H5 Universal looks set to tick a lot of boxes, promising solid cooling performance, quiet acoustics, great design, an affordable price and excellent compatibility.

Earlier this year, Legit Reviews had the opportunity to spend some time evaluating the performance of the newly released A80 Hybrid CPU Cooler from CryoRig and came away very impressed. This was CryoRig’s first attempt at an AIO cooler and with some help with their OEM, Asetek, they hit a home run. Since Legit Reviews has evaluated what should be the best performer in the lineup in the A80 and came away thoroughly impressed, we wanted to see how the units with the smaller A40 and A40 Ultimate models compared.

In this review I looked at three fans from Cooler Master called the MasterFan 120 Pro. Each one of these fans is designed to address a different segment of the cooling market from silent case cooling up to high performance watercooling and everything in between.

Thu: 10/13/2016Topic: Cooling / Heatsinks    PermaLink has just posted another review. This week we have tested the Alphacool Eisbaer 240 AIO water cooler. This AIO was a closed water cooling system that’s easy to install and can be easily and safely expanded with its quick-lock closure.

Back in July, the Deepcool Captain 240 EX featured in a 6 way round-up of mainstream AIO coolers. Today we are looking at its smaller counterpart, the Captain 120 EX. The model we were sent for review is white, though there are black and red alternatives available.

„Fractal Design Dynamic X2 GP-12 and GP-14 are true all-purpose fans, offering good airflow and best in class 100,000 hours MTBF thanks to the new LLS bearing. Their customized design creates a beautifully aesthetic fan to help keep your system cool, yet quiet.“

Cooling is a very important deal when it comes to computers, and keeping your CPU in cool and (optionally) quiet can really make or break your systems performance. The stock coolers that come with CPUs are more often than not “enough” to keep the thing running, but offer little headroom for overclocking, if any, they’re not particularly quiet at high load and a more powerful and quieter aftermarket cooler is usually a step in the right direction.

Successfully building a stylish and powerful gaming system isn’t overly challenging thanks to the wealth of tutorial videos and hardware experts littered around numerous forums ready to offer useful advice. Not only that, the majority of component installation revolves around common sense and can be completed by those without a high level of technical expertise. Subsequently, the low barrier to entry has caused some proponents of self-builds to question the need for pre-configured systems.

While this argument certainly has some validity to it, there’s still legitimate reasons why you might want to consider ordering a custom PC from a reputable company like Cyberpower. First and foremost, cable management is tricky, especially when opting for small-form-factor builds. Also, having accessible customer service and a lengthy warranty period is an alluring prospect.

The DeepCool Captain series has already proven a big hit with system builders, its mixture of high-performance, competitive prices, and unique design make it stand out from a sea of very similar looking products that are on the market today. Now they’re back once again with a slight twist on the core design, as the 120EX White brightens up the design with a glossy black and white finish on the pump, reservoir, and fan.

"With the Eisbrecher, Alphacool is introducing a new generation of radiators. The Eisbrecher radiators were designed specifically for silent operation and perform especially well when paired with slow-revolving fans. This makes the Eisbrecher ideal for anyone looking to build a quiet system.

The radiator core is made completely of copper, as usual for Alphacool, and the outer parts are made of aluminium. Both sides of the radiator have a honeycomb grille, under which lies the radiator’s truly innovative technology. The A.B.M., or air breaker mat, ensures even distribution of fresh air to the radiator. On normal radiators, the spaces underneath the fan hub and in the corners are dead spots with barely any air circulation. The A.B.M. works like a fan shroud and breaks up the incoming air so it circulates to every area.

Because of the more even distribution of air, especially with slow-revolving fans, performance is greatly increased.

Another focus during the development of the radiator was the general feedback from the modding community, who are frequently looking to paint their radiators. To this end, the aluminium frame is easy to remove and customize. The radiator’s elegant and striking appearance is on a new level, not only optically but also haptically.

The Alphacool Eisbrecher is not replacing the existing NexXxoS series, but rather expanding it. Models for 140mm fans are on their way, as well as an LT variant of the Eisbrecher to fill further gaps in the portfolio."

This time we got our hands on the Scythe Kabuto 3, the revised version of Scythes 120mm top blow CPU cooler. The cooling concept stayed mostly the same, but design and the heatpipe construction have been reworked radically. Four of the overall six 6mm heatpipes have been replaced by three 8mm heatpipes, reducing the total number of heatpipes to five. On the next pages we show you how the new Scythe Kabuto 3 performs.

Cooler Master's MasterBox 5 and Zalman's Z9 Neo cases each offer nifty feature sets for well under $100. We put these cases to the test to see which one comes out on top in the war for budget-case supremacy.

"The JUSTICE performed beyond my expectations, with outstanding temps even when stressed with an overclocked 6-core load. The second fan provided by REEVEN allowed this cooler to put up some of the best cooling numbers we've seen from an air cooler to date, though that fan is a little harder to find, with no listing on Amazon or Newegg. (I did find a listing from Performance PCs, who currently stock this PWM version for $7.77.)"

Another Scythe CPU cooler on the bench and this time it’s the Scythe Kabuto 3. We are not going to test this one on our usual X99 test bench, it’s not compatible, instead we will be testing it on an Intel 6700K CPU. The Scythe Kabuto 3 is another “Top-Flow-Design” from Scythe and another with their 120 mm PWM fan from the GlideStream series.
