Unlike traditional CPU coolers, heat energy in the Sandia Cooler is 
conducted across a very thin air gap bearing from the stationary base of the cooler to the upper rotating aluminum fin/fan component. The Dark Rock Pro 3 is dual tower, dual fan, low noise CPU heatsink. In other words, if you want a quiet heatsink that handles like a performance cooler AND you have a motherboard which can accommodate it's boxy  footprint, you're reading the right CPU heatsink review! The Scythe Ashura Shadow is a dark nickel plated version of the vanilla Ashura heatsink Scythe also has on the market. Structurally, there's no difference between the two coolers, aside from the cosmetic metal coating. The Ashura Shadow heatsink stands 162mm tall and has a footprint of 145x89mm so it should fit most motherboards without memory slot interference. The SilentiumPC Fera2 HE1224 is a 154mm tall CPU cooler built around four 6mm diameter exposed copper heatpipes. The relatively thin profile should allow it to fit with ease in most motherboards, with a minimum of interference from near by memory module or VRM motherboard heatsinks. At the center of the NPH-1366-115HC heatsink is nPowertek's proprietory copper heat column - essentially a 33mm diameter copper heatpipe. The inner walls and base of the heat column are covered by a sintered metal wick and the contents under vacuum with a small amount of working fluid.

The water cooling market offers up some very fierce competition these days, there are so many great products to choose from that it is becoming harder and harder to find a product that is best for your system. The overall quality and performance of all-in-one water coolers has been increasing steadily over the years and with every company trying their hardest to be the best it’s near impossible to buy a poor water cooler, so long as you stick with brand names such as Enermax, Corsair, Cooler Master, Antec, etc. Cooler Master have long been a popular choice for CPU coolers, many of their air and water cooling products have won awards year after year for their performance and that’s something we’re hoping to see reflected again here today. With a few rival products recently launched the Nepton does have some tough competition on their hands, but the Nepton has proven to be a great product before, and these new ones promise to be even better.

We tend to focus on "high end" CPU cooling when we do reviews, but today we have something a bit different. Enermax, known world wide for its overall excellent power supplies, steps foot in the CPU cooling ring with a contender that is very easy on your wallet, weighing in at less than $25. We still have high expectations though!

Noctua has always been known for their quality products and high performance air coolers. The issue with tower air coolers is that they often tend to be large, heavy and cover up portions of your motherboard under their bulk. While most companies have shifted their focus to the less intrusive all-in-one liquid coolers, Noctua has stayed true to their air cooling roots. Today we take a look at their NH-U12S performance cooler; a tower cooler in a smaller, more space friendly package that promises the same performance you would get out of larger, bulkier models and run it through our tests. Is the age of air cooling at an end or just in transition? We’ll find out.

Initially, the H105 might leave you scratching your head. It's listed on Corsair’s site with the same $119.99 MSRP as the H100i, and both are 240mm designs featuring the same high performance fans. The similarities end there, however, as the design of the H105 is more akin to Corsair's new 120mm H75 (which we recently reviewed) than to the existing 240mm H100/H100i. With the H75 already a solid price/performance pick in Corsair’s lineup - and the various other options still available - it's reasonable to wonder exactly where H105 fits in.

Quote: "The Corsair H105 is a solid performer with tremendous upside. It was able to compete with every other cooling solution at lower fan speeds and noise, but during the most grueling tests it really showed some exceptional cooling performance. The thicker radiator design Corsair has implemented here really pays off, and the H105 is capable of keeping some very high processor overclocks nice and cool."

Standing just 69mm tall, the Raijintek Pallas CPU cooler is probably the largest low profile heatsink Frostytech as tested in recent memory. Raijintek's low profile Pallas heatsink is constructed around six 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and a 120x140mm array of nickel-plated...

Noctua thus has introduced the NH-D15, a dual-tower cooler tweaked for efficiency. Do not mistake its large size as an exercise in brute force for the NH-D15 upon closer inspection, is a measured approach to cooling. Moving to a pair of larger NF-A15 fans, the NH-D15 boasts excellent thermal management capabilities at a lower noise level.

The HAF Stacker is a beast, it is obviously a big case and with the epic size comes an equally epic price tag. The HAF 935 is a 2-in-1 boxed product, coming with the full tower and one of the mini-ITX modules (915F), this will set you back around £160. In addition to this you can buy the mini-ITX modules separate. We have the HAF 915F at our disposal today today which is an extra £68, but can also be bought for the same price in HAF 915R format, the difference being that the F has a front mounted PSU, the R is mounted in the back and we’ll explain why later. So in the eTeknix office we have the HAF 935 + 915R, that’s one full tower and two mini-ITX modules. Total retail price for this will be £228, which obviously puts the HAF Stacker out of the reach of your average consumer, but if it wasn’t immediately apparent that this is ultra-high-end enthusiast grade hardware, then you’ve clearly never heard of the HAF Stacker before. The modular nature of the chassis products I have at my disposal means I can build a system that’s nearly 5ft tall, containing 3 motherboards, 3 power supplies, in fact it can simply fit three full systems! Or of course you can build one colossal, Godzilla crushing mega-rig, like none that have gone before it. Of course doing such a thing would require a gargantuan amount of components and of course a LOT of money to do something like this justice, I would love to do it, but this isn’t a build-log, this is a chassis review (sorry). I will however do as much as I can with this chassis and what we really want to look at is the build quality, feature set and really get in there and take a look at just how crazy you have to be to even attempt a build in a chassis of this size.

All-In-One or "AIO" CPU coolers have become the go-to cooling system for many [H]'ers out there. A quality AIO setup offers its users what is usually a quick and simple liquid cooling solution that many find superior to air cooling solutions on the whole. The Glacer 240L is not the run-of-the-mill AIO cooling solution at all; its "Semi-DIY."

As with all Be Quiet products, silence is their primary goal. They could easily place an insanely high-RPM fan on the Dark Rock Pro 3 so it places high on benchmark graphs and call it a day, but that would betray their philosophy. While their flagship cooler does not take top spot in the cooling charts, the silence is undeniable no matter what speed you choose to run the fans at.
