UPDATED! Silverstone's Tundra TD02 CPU liquid cooler offers up some refreshing design elements for the computer enthusiast looking to assemble a system that stands out from the crowd. In place of the standard black heat exchanger we find something vaguely reminiscent of a Mac, or a Star Wars set... UPDATED! This is a review of the Silverstone Tundra TD03 self contained liquid cooling system. The Tundra TD03 consists of a waterblock with integrated copper base plate attached to a small 120mm heat exchanger via 310mm long white FEP tubing. Arctic's Liquid Freezer 120 ships fully assembled, plumbed and filled. The whole system weighs around 942grams and installs onto Intel socket LGA115x/2011(-3) processors and AMD. The Scythe Mugen 5 Rev B (SCMG-5100) heatsink is a lower-noise tower cooler standing 154mm tall and equipped with a single 120mm PWM fan. The Mugen 5 Rev B is constructed around six 6mm diameter nickel plated heatspipes which are swaged onto an array of raw aluminum cooling fins. 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.

The Arctic Liquid Freezer 240 is an all-in-one CPU water cooling solution built around a large 240mm-sized aluminum heat exchanger that's well suited to full tower PC cases. With the front-facing fans removed from the Liquid Freezer 240's heat exchanger for imaging clarity, a pretty basic coolant path can be easily be discerned. Judging by the resultant radiometric image, the Liquid Freezer 240's heat exchanger uses a simple parallel flow path design.

ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high-performance DRAM modules, NAND Flash products, and mobile accessories today announces that the XPG SPECTRIX D80 DDR4 memory module has been honored with an iF Design Award 2019 for product design excellence.

The SPECTRIX D80 features a liquid heatsink on its top side that benefits from a non-conductive fluid with a low boiling point to dissipate heat. It works in conjunction with an aluminum heatsink and thermally conductive materials on the PCB to offer hybrid cooling. ADATA first introduced a prototype liquid-cooled memory design (“Jellyfish”) during CES 2018 in Las Vegas to much excitement. The XPG SPECTRIX D80 is the realization of the concept’s viability for a commercially available memory module.

Equipped with programmable RGB lighting, the liquid heatsink isn’t just functional, but also visually captivating with the fluid completely illuminated for all to see. Users can customize the lighting effects by setting up patterns, pulse speed, lighting intensity, and more. Lighting control is intuitive with the XPG RGB Sync app, or users can use an existing RGB lighting control software from a major motherboard maker.

Made for avid gamers, DIY enthusiasts, and overclockers, the SPECTRIX D80 provides a wide frequency range from 2666MHz to 4133MHz. Also, preconfigured Intel® XMP (Extreme Memory Profile) 2.0 profiles allow for quick overclocking, doing away with the need for adjusting individual parameters in BIOS. For added reliability and dependability, the module uses high-quality chips chosen through a strict selection process for superior stability, even when operating at high speeds or under heavy loads. Earlier this year, the SPECTRIX D80 was overclocked to 5584MT/s, a new speed record.

The heatsink makes use of four direct contact heatpipes to remove heat from the CPU, which is then passed into the nickel plated fin array. The same was true of the non-RGB version which we reviewed so any difference we find will be down to the change in 120mm fan more than anything else.

Noctua today introduced NT-H2, the second generation of its hybrid thermal compound. Combining the NT-H1’s proven features, ease of use and long-term stability with a fine-tuned formula of microparticles, NT-H2 is an enthusiast-grade paste. At the same time, Noctua also presented a large 10g pack of NT-H1 as well as NA-SCW1, a set of 20 cleaning wipes that are ideal for removing thermal compound in a quick, clean and efficient manner.

NT-H2 uses a new mixture of metal oxide microparticles for lower thermal resistance and reduced bond-line thickness at typical mounting pressures. In Noctua’s standardised internal testing at various platforms and heat loads, up to 2°C lower temperatures were attained.

NT-H2 thermal compound does not require a break-in period and due to its long-term stability, it can be used on the CPU for up to 5 years. Both pastes are electrically non-conductive and non-corroding, so there is no risk of short circuits and they’re safe to use with all types of heatsink.

NT-H2 thermal compound will come in standard 3.5g and extra-large 10g packages that include three (3.5g) and ten (10g) NA-CW1 cleaning wipes for easy cleaning. Pre-moistened with a custom detergent mixture, these wipes are ideal for cleaning CPUs, GPUs and the contact surface of heatsinks in a quick and efficient manner. For enthusiast users who take off and install their coolers frequently, the NA-CW1 wipes are also available separately in a set of 20 (NA-SCW1).

In addition to the new NT-H2 and NA-SCW1 cleaning wipes, Noctua also introduced a 10g package of NT-H1. While, so far, the popular paste has only been available in a 3.5g package, the new 10g version is ideal for power users or for large processors such as AMD’s Threadripper (TR4) or Intel’s LGA3647 that require higher volumes of thermal compound.

All compounds are available from Noctua’s official Amazon and eBay. Other sales partners will receive stock shortly. The suggested retail prices are as follows:
NT-H2 3.5g: 12.90 EUR/USD
NT-H2 10g: 24.90 EUR/USD
NT-H1 3.5g: 7.90 EUR/USD
NT-H1 10g: 14.90 EUR /USD

Thermaltake has entered the DDR4 memory market in typical Thermaltake style. There are two kits of DDR4-3200MHz in the shape of a dual module 16GB kit and a quad module 32GB kit. You won’t be surprised to learn that WaterRAM comes with RGB lighting however the novel part is that these kits can be water cooled with the minimum of fuss. You have three distinct options when it comes to cooling; you can leave the modules bare, apart from their 2mm thick aluminium heat sinks that function through regular convection cooling. Alternatively you can top off the assembly with the water block with its copper base to increase the thermal mass and thus assist cooling. Finally you opt for the Full Monty and plumb the water block to a custom loop.

Like just about every other product on the market, RGB has been popping up in the water cooling market for a while now. It started on Monoblocks and EK even had it on their new Velocity line of water blocks. But their Supremacy water blocks have mostly been lacking with the exception of the Threadripper block. But at CES this year they have introduced their new lineup called the Classic RGB. They characterize it as “minimalistic and clean while maintaining class-leading performance”. That explains the Classic part of the name, but the second half also indicates that the new lineup has also added RGB lighting as well. I’ve actually had most of the components in the office to check out and now that the cat is out of the bag I can share them with everyone. So today I’m going to check them out and do a little testing as well.
