Thermolab BADA Heatsink Review
Nov 03, 2009 - Frosty No.2467
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


From the makers of the wavy BARAM heatsink comes the Thermolab BADA; a 136mm tall mid-tower heatsink that fills in the performance cooling void where taller coolers can't go.


Heatpipe Wick Structures Exposed: Sintered, Groove and Mesh
Nov 03, 2009 - Frosty No.2466
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


It's impossible to tell what type of wick a heatpipe uses in your favourite heatsink just by looking at it from the outside. The heatpipe would need to be cut open to find out the answer to that question....


3Rsystem Iceage 120 Boss II Dimpled-Fin Heatsink Review
Oct 26, 2009 - Frosty No.2461
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Let's get right to the point, 3Rsystem's Iceage 120 Boss II heatsink is currently one of the Top 5 heatsinks tested on Frostytech. Key to the success of this Korean-made heatsink on both AMD and Intel synthetic test platforms are five 8mm diameter exposed base heatpipes...


Zaward Gyre Flow Heatsink Review
Oct 25, 2009 - Frosty No.2460
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The fins are pressed over three 8mm diameter copper heatpipes, but how exactly do the fins disperse heat conducted by the heatpipes?


Arctic Cooling Alpine 64 Pro AMD Heatsink Review
Oct 11, 2009 - Frosty No.2456
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Arctic Cooling Alpine 64 Pro is just such heatsink: ideal for mainstream CPUs that don't exceed 90W TDP.... so long as the fan speed stays at 2000RPM.


Evercool Transformer 4 HPJ-12025 Heatsink Review
Oct 07, 2009 - Frosty No.2454
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


On the test bench today is a new dual 120mm fan heatsink from Evercool called the Transformer 4 HPJ-12025. Its twin fans are arranged in a push-pull configuration and rotate at a leisurely 1000RPM.


Glacialtech X-Wing R1 Notebook Cooling Pad Review
Sep 28, 2009 - Frosty No.2451
Category: Peripherals


The Glacialtech X-Wing R1 notebook cooling pad accomodates cronically overheating notebooks with footprints of upto 365x250mm, either while sitting on a desk or resting comfortably on your lap.


Scythe Zipang 2 SCZP-2000 Heatsink Review
Sep 04, 2009 - Frosty No.2421
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Scythe Zipang 2 heatsink actually fulfills most of these criteria, essentially silently, thanks to a clever combination of a slow-speed 140mm diameter fan and large cooling surface area. It's not the coolest heatsink Frostytech has ever tested, but it did keep noise levels under 40dB and temperatures to a little over 25C ambient in our 150W synthetic test scenario.


DeepCool Killer Whale Premium Heatsink Review
Sep 02, 2009 - Frosty No.2431
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The large top-down heatsink has a jaw dropping weight of 1,225grams, or 1.225kg. That's a lot of weight to hang from a CPU socket, so it goes without saying that rear motherboard support brackets are mandatory!


DeepCool Killer Whale Heatsink Review
Aug 30, 2009 - Frosty No.2430
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


DeepCool's Killer Whale heatsink is a top-down cooler built around two critical things. It has a hefty solid copper heat spreader (base) onto which six 6mm diameter heatpipes have been soldered, and a large and potentially very quiet 48mm thick 120mm PWM fan that spins at 1000-1800RPM.


DeepCool IceWing 5 Pro Heatsink Review
Aug 26, 2009 - Frosty No.2429
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The IceWing 5 Pro heatsink is compatible with Intel socket 775/1366 and AMD socket 939-to-AM3 processors. It features five 6mm diameter copper heatpipes, stands 131mm tall and weighs roughly 670 grams.


Scythe Big Shuriken SCBSK-1000 Heatsink Review
Aug 23, 2009 - Frosty No.2425
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Scythe Big Shuriken is actually a really small heatsink, well not so much tiny as low profile. From the CPU to the top of the fan, the Big Shuriken measures a scant 57mm tall. That's not a whole lot of space to cram in a heatsink, but somehow Scythe have packed in four 6mm diameter heatpipes, 60 or 70 razor thin aluminum fins and a 120mm fan.


Kingwin XT-1264 Heatsink Review
Aug 13, 2009 - Frosty No.2420
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Kingwin's XT-1264 is the first tower-style heatsink to pass through the Frostytech test labs which incorporates asymmetrical U-shaped heatpipes. In other words the heatpipes are not even, rather one length of each vertical heatpipe is 30mm shorter than the opposite.


3RSystem Iceage 80 Prima Mini Heatsink Review
Aug 11, 2009 - Frosty No.2417
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


3Rsystem's Iceage 80 Prima Mini is a compact CPU cooler that stands just 104mm tall. It's ideally suited towards compact PC systems, slim cases, or simply as a low noise cooling solution for energy efficient sub-85W processors.


Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus Socket 1156 Heatsink Review
Aug 09, 2009 - Frosty No.2419
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


In this review Frostytech will be testing Coolermaster's Hyper 212 Plus tower heatsink - an exposed heatpipe base cooler that comes ready out of the box for socket 1156 Intel 'Lynnfield' P55 motherboards. Naturally, it supports Intel socket 775/1366/1156 and AMD 939/AM2/AM3 processors.


3RSystem Iceage 90 Heatsink Review
Aug 07, 2009 - Frosty No.2416
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


3Rsystem's Iceage 90 heatsink is a mid-compact heatsink stands just 115mm tall, instead of 165mm, making it suitable for PC chassis that can't accommodate much.


Xigmatek Thors Hammer S126384 Stacked Heatpipe Heatsink Review
Aug 03, 2009 - Frosty No.2415
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Standing 157mm tall, the Xigmatek Thors Hammer heatsink tips the scales at 800 grams and has a rather boxy footprint of 120 x 116mm. It accomodates one or two 120mm fans that mount to the fins with special rubber vibration absorbing posts.


Coolermaster Hyper TX3 Heatsink Review
Jun 13, 2009 - Frosty No.2401
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Hyper TX3 heatsink weighs in at 470 grams, stands less than 140mm tall, and comes equipped with a low noise 92mm 800-2800RPM PWM fan that drives 17-54CFM according the manufacturer.


DeepCool Ice Blade Pro Heatsink Review
Jun 10, 2009 - Frosty No.2405
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


One or two 120mm fans can be mounted to either side of the DeepCool Ice Blade Pro, and rubber vibration absorbing posts are supplied along with extra fan clips. A single 120mm PWM fan that operates at 900-1500RPM is supplied.


Thermaltake ISGC-200 Heatsink Review
Jun 09, 2009 - Frosty No.2402
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The ISGC-200 heatsink itself stands 140mm tall, weighs 470 grams and accommodates one 92mm PWM fan that spins at 600~1600 RPM. If I didn't know better I'd say the ISGC-200 was released for Intel's new socket 1156 formfactor processors.


GlacialTech UFO V51 Silent Heatsink Review
May 20, 2009 - Frosty No.2397
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


At it's core, Glacialtech have equipped the 136mm tall UFO V51 Silent heatsink with two 1600RPM fans surrounding a large aluminum fin array, and framed in by a plastic casing that acts like a shroud to duct air through it. The heatsink weighs 780grams and is compatible with both Intel socket 775, 1366 and the entire family of AMD socket 939/AM3 processors.


Scythe Kama Angle Heatsink Review
Apr 27, 2009 - Frosty No.2391
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Traditional parallel fin-to-fan relationships are thrown out the window and what we're left with is a chevron-shaped aluminum fin tower with the fan set at 45 degrees to the leading edge.


Coolermaster Hyper N520 Heatsink Review
Apr 25, 2009 - Frosty No.2390
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


This tower heatsink stands out because its two 92mm fans are arranged in an offset push-pull formation. There are a couple reasons for offsetting the fans by 20mm that we'll touch on momentarily.


Evercool Forumula 2 VC-RHE Videocard Heatsink Review
Apr 20, 2009 - Frosty No.2389
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Evercool VC-RHE Formula 2 weighs in at 232 grams, stands 35mm above the GPU (it will occupy one additional PCI slot worth of space) and uses a single 80mm fan to quietly keep a broad range of mainstream videocards running cool.


Sunbeam Core-Contact Freezer 92mm Heatsink Review
Mar 25, 2009 - Frosty No.2386
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


An additional mounting bracket is available for socket 1366/1156 Intel Core i7 processors. This will require you to remove the motherboard and install a metal backplate.


Titan Fenrir TTC-NK85TZ Heatsink Review
Mar 23, 2009 - Frosty No.2383
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


Titan's TTC-NK85TZ Fenrir heatsink stands 156mm tall, is 124mm wide and accommodates one 120mm fan that spins at 800~2200 RPM. Weighing it at roughly 550grams, the TTC-NK85TZ Fenrir is compatible with both Intel socket 775, 1366 and the entire family of AMD socket 939 to AM2+ processors.


Thermaltake RamOrb Memory Heat Spreader Review
Mar 02, 2009 - Frosty No.2377
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The Thermaltake RamOrb heat spreaders are sold individually, and each comes with four sheets of thermal interface material so it can conceivably be installed on two sticks of memory in its lifetime.


Akasa Blue Aurora AK-966BL Heatsink Review
Mar 02, 2009 - Frosty No.2358
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks


The thermal design follows in the footsteps of models released by Xigmatek and others, but if you flip the Blue Aurora AK-966BL over you won't find exposed heatpipes.
