"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. "

Noctua NH-L9i Low Profile Heatsink Review
Nov 04, 2013 - Frosty No.2730
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Noctua's low profile NH-L9i heatsink stands 36mm tall so it will fit into the smallest of small form factor chassis. The NH-L9i is designed to cool Intel socket LGA115x (1155/1156/1150) processors only, which is a departure from the one-size-fits-all approach we're used to.

Oct 15, 2013 - Frosty No.2729
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Hyperbole aside, the Raijintek Ereboss heatsink is built around six 6mm diameter copper heatpipes which weave their way up from a nickel-plated copper base plate to a voluminous aluminum fin stack measuring 105mm tall and 112x140mm wide.

Zalman CNPS2X Low Profile Heatsink Review
Oct 14, 2013 - Frosty No.2728

This little heatsink from Zalman is called the CNPS2X and it looks like it should be found on an entry level videocard, motherboard chipset or possibly a miniITX motherboard.

Silverstone NT01-Pro Heatsink Review
Oct 11, 2013 - Frosty No.2727
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

What makes the Silverstone NT01-Pro heatsink stand out from the crowd is its relatively low stature; the whole heatsink is under ~111mm tall...

Oct 02, 2013 - Frosty No.2725
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

'Themis', as you're no doubt are already aware from your days in school, is the Greek goddess of "devine law." If you skipped school, you may have already met Themis in person... in a court room. Themis is the bronze lass holding the sword behind her back...

Raijintek Aidos Heatsink Review
Oct 02, 2013 - Frosty No.2724
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

On the test bench today is Raijintek's Aidos heatsink, a sub-compact tower cooler that stands just 137mm tall. The Aidos heatsink positions itself as an ideal CPU cooler for height limited computer cases or sub-95W TDP processors that really don't require big and heavy thermal solutions to get the job done.

Sep 26, 2013 - Frosty No.2723
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Silverstone's Argon AR08 is constructed around three beefy 8mm diameter copper heatpipes which are exposed at the base of the cooler. Putting the heatpipes in direct contact with the top of the processor makes for a very thermally efficient path with a minimum of thermal joint resistance.

DeepCool Gammaxx S40 Heatsink Review
Jul 18, 2013 - Frosty No.2721
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

It's nice to once again encounter a heatsink that stands less than 150mm tall and doesn't feature some kind of complicated self contained water cooling heat exchanger... these days it's getting more difficult to find CPU coolers for compact computer systems.

Jul 16, 2013 - Frosty No.2720
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Apr 24, 2013 - Frosty No.2716
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Airflow is driven by a single 120mm PWM fan whose snow white 7-bladed impeller rotates at your basic 2200RPM to 800RPM. Noise output is moderate. Because computer enthusiasts tend to be picky bunch, Evercool have tossed in one extra set of wire fan clips.

Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Like a tower heatsink on steroids, the Deepcool Neptwin heatsink incorporates two full-size aluminum cooling fin stacks, twin 120mm fans, six 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and a chunky 5mm thick copper heatspreader base plate - it's almost literally two heatsinks in one!

Coolermaster Gemin II M4 Heatsink Review
Jan 23, 2013 - Frosty No.2709
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

The Coolermaster Gemin II M4 heatsink measures just 61mm tall, from the base of its exposed copper heatpipes to the tippy tip of its translucent vaneaxial fan. How does manage to squeeze in a fan and enough cooling surface area in a package so thin?

The Hydro H100 heatsink ships fully assembled, filled with a propylene glycol based coolant and plumbed. The waterblock is connected by 24cm of flexible FEP tubing to the heat exchanger which measures about 274x120x25mm in size. Two 120mm fans are included, these operate at 2600-1300RPM and create a fair bit of noise at full tilt.

Corsair Hydro H60 Watercooling System Review
Dec 31, 2012 - Frosty No.2705
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

Corsair have updated the waterblock design and given the Hydro H60 a new compact profile which hides functional changes to the integrated pump and improves mounting bracket installation significantly. All of this is transparent to the end user though.

Nov 14, 2012 - Frosty No.2700
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

The Silverstone Heligon HE02 is being sold as a passive heatsink for sub-95W TDP processors, so today on Frostytech we'll put this big, boxy, silent heatsink through its passive paces. No fans will be used in the testing, just good old noise-less convection cooling.

Nov 09, 2012 - Frosty No.2699
Category: Cooling / Heatsinks

AMD's FX-Series Liquid Cooling Heatsink ships pre-filled and is no more difficult to install than a standard heatsink.
