"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. "

TTIC nPowertek Hurricane NPH-105 Heatsink Review
Jan 04, 2011 - Frosty No.2570
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

The nPowertek TTIC NPH-105 heatsink is an interesting CPU cooler because it is constructed with 6mm diameter copper heatpipes (two) and a not so common 25mm diameter copper heat column that is capable of moving a lot of heat on its own.

Akasa Revo AK-925 Loop Thermosyphon Heatsink Review
Jan 01, 2011 - Frosty No.2576
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Unlike heatpipes which typically use water under a slight vacuum for working fluid, the Revo heatsink is slightly pressurized with a fluorocarbon called R134a. R134a has a boiling point of -26.3°C at room pressure, but in the hermetically sealed system at a slight pressure that boiling point is raised to a level more appropriate for this application.

Coolage X120TF Heatsink Review
Dec 28, 2010 - Frosty No.2571
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

In wind tunnels metal honeycomb panels are often used to smooth out the turbulent airflow and create laminar airflow. Coolage's X120TF heatsink borrows from this idea with a loosely shaped honeycomb fin stack. It will be interesting to see what impact this kind of fin geometry has on the relatively deep fins of the X120TF heatsink - will it help or hinder the cooling performance?

Dynatron Evo-11 Heatsink Review
Dec 19, 2010 - Frosty No.2565
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Dynatron's Evo-11 heatsink hopes to make its mark with a unique implementation of 6mm heatpipes. Two rows of heatpipes, four below and three above form the base of the Evo-11 heatsink. All the heatpipes are set into a pretty hefty nickel plated aluminum base block, formed from three separate slabs of metal soldered together.

Nexus VCT-9000 Heatsink Review
Dec 13, 2010 - Frosty No.2561
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Frostytech is not going to waste your time by leaving the most important information till the very end of this review - the Nexus VCT-9000 heatsink is an interesting looking thermal solution, but it fails completely in its execution. Nexus have manufactured the VCT-9000 heatsink poorly, resulting in uneven exposed heatpipes that may not contact the processor properly.

Titan Hati TTC-NC15TZ Heatsink Review
Dec 12, 2010 - Frosty No.2560
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

In this review Frostytech is testing Titan's new Hati TTC-NC15TZ exposed heatpipe base CPU cooler. The TTC-NC15TZ is capable of very good performance results with the supplied 120mm PWM fan operating at full speed, however that trend quickly changes direction once fan speed is brought down for quieter operation...

Scythe SCRT-1000 Rasetsu Heatsink Review
Dec 03, 2010 - Frosty No.2554
Category: Computer / SFF PCs

Broad processor support, however, is not what makes the Scythe Rasetsu heatsink stand out.... instead it's a mixture of acute and obtuse isosceles triangular voids cut into the leading and trailing edges of the heatsinks aluminum fins.
