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. Technically speaking, the Coolermaster Ergostand III supports laptops with footprints up to 15 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. 

The Noctua NH-D9DXi4-3U is a mid-sized heatsink designed specifically for lower noise cooling of Intel Xeon processors in 3U height computer/server chassis. It's compact stature makes it ideal for rack mounted computers in a recording studio, video editing suite, operations control center... The 920gram Scythe Fuma heatsink is constructed around six 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and a pair of aluminum fin stacks that measure 104x130x37mm (HxWxD) in size. The heatpipes are liberally soldered to a chunky nickel plated copper base plate, this plate helps to more evenly conduct heat away from hot-spot ridden multi-core CPUs.

ASME.org have an interesting paper entitled "Two-Phase Thermal Ground Planes: Technology Development and Parametric Results" which covers DARPA's research into thermal ground planes combining the advantages of vapor chambers and solid conductors by building thin, high effective thermal conductivity, flat heat pipes out of materials with thermal expansion coefficients that match current electronic devices.

In particular, these Teledyne TGP biwick structures caught our eye:

"The advantages of CNT biwick structures are that the large pores provide low viscous flow facilitating vapor escape during nucleate boiling while the small pores enhance thin film evaporation. "

Corsair highlights the fact that the Obsidian 1000D support 21 fans out of the box with 16 at the front (that’s two 480mm radiators with fans arranged in push/pull), three fans in the roof and two at the rear. Corsair had populated the entire collection and the result was impressive, so it took us a while to appreciate the 1000D is supplied without any fans at all. When you consider that a triple pack of Corsair LL120 fans costs £90, well, you can do the maths. The other talking point about the Corsair Obsidian 1000D is the support for dual systems with E-ATX in the main chamber and a Mini-ITX system towards the bottom of the case. If you take this approach you’ll require two of everything, including motherboards, CPUs, graphics, power supplies, RAM and cooling systems. Naturally we couldn’t resist going for the maximum so we arranged a massive pile of components and got stuck in.

Unlike the recently tested MA410P, MA610P and MA620P tower coolers, the small round Cooler Master G100M UFO cooler is more for the small space requirement in Micro ATX or Mini ITX enclosures, without sacrificing an optical highlight. We test whether the cooling performance is still satisfactory and also have the 360 degree view, a new video with sound and yet another video with all the RGB effects in our OCinside YouTube channel.

"On our quest to see who has the best RGB fans out there we have a new kit which we are checking out today from AZZA. It is their Hurrican RGB with Lumi controller. This 3-fan kit has a rather unique design as the RGB LEDs illuminate the actual frame of the fan rather than the fan blades. The Lumi controller is actually pretty cool and allows you to control these fans (both speed and RGB effects) with your phone! No more hard buttons to find inside of your case! This kit comes in at $69.99 so not the most expensive kit out there, but not the cheapest either. Let’s jump in and see what this kit is all about!"

SilverStone is looking to expand their Argon series of cooler launches with the all new AR11. Featuring four copper heat pipes, a 92 mm fan, and a dense aluminium fin array, it manages to achieve a 95 watt TDP rating with good airflow. Suffice it to say that this dainty cooler packs a punch.

"Back in March we looked at the cooling performance of Noctua's AMD EPYC heatsinks for cooling these Zen-based server processors. The Noctua heatsinks tested did a wonderful job testing those socket SP3 processors so when the Austrian company announced a few weeks ago their Xeon Scalable heatsink line-up, we decided it would be interesting to see how their latest Intel server heatsinks perform."

Especially our fans and your fans, a review on that new Sterrox based Noctua fan. Well, that and many more newly released ones. Noctua recently released new Sterrox manufactured 120mm fans in a wide range of configurations. The NF-A12 series, however, has been a fan series they worked on for four years! In this group test, we'll put nine recent Noctua fans to the test, and compared them in cooling performance, noise levels and airflow.

With the New Ark 90, Deepcool has a case for E-ATX motherboards in its portfolio, which comes with a lot of features and an integrated all-in-one cooler. Apart from that, it offers a lot of room for high-end setups. In addition this model supports RGB illumination and it's compatible with several lighting systems. For now, we're really curious to find out how this case is going to do in our review.

The Sandia Cooler is back, again!

www.frostytech.com

"Thermaltake today released the long-awaited Engine 17 1U Low-Profile CPU Cooler, the latest PC cooling innovation for Intel socket LGA 1150/1151/1155/1156 type CPU. The Engine 17 offers an excellent balance between performance, size and acoustics with the low-profile design (max TDP 35W), along with the most advanced thermal techniques. Unlike traditional CPU cooling solutions, the Engine 17 features 17mm height with a compact size 60mm PWM fan, allowing the cooler to be installed into any small form factor applications. The unique metallic (aluminum alloy) fan structure with copper base guarantees extremely quiet, yet powerful operation. The Engine 17 is the new standard in CPU air cooling technology, and it is exclusive to Thermaltake.

www.frostytech.com

Designed with 17mm height, the Engine 17 is the ideal CPU cooling solution for slim and small form factor applications, such as 1U server, HTPC, AIO/PIO PC, POS terminal and Booksize/Mini PC.

www.frostytech.com

Unlike traditional CPU coolers, the Engine 17 features a metallic structure and copper base that provides more fortified and efficient thermal paths for CPU. The metallic fan is designed to directly pull heat from CPU. Especially, the metallic fan base is engineered with small radial gaps that allow heat to be transferred rapidly to the rotating metallic fan. When the metallic fan blades generate cooling airflow, heat will also be transferred to the flowing air by both rotating fan and stationary fan base at the same time.

www.frostytech.com

Metallic fan with unique 40 blades design is engineered to generate higher airflow passing through the heatsink without sacrificing ultra-silent operation. The metallic blade rotation will create a centrifugal force on ambient air. In the meanwhile, the centrifugal forces will expel hot air so that heat can easily be taken away from the fan blades. Most importantly, this cooling technique can reduce the blade’s noise and vibration because hot air expelled will create a vacuum, and then fresh cooling air will be drawn in the heatsink.

The Engine 17 is specially designed with metallic radial fins to accelerate the thermal transfer process. Especially, the radial arrangement with 119 fin design can minimize the gap between the fan and the fins, thus, hot air can be exhausted more rapidly and efficiently.

The PWM function enables the motherboard to run the fan precisely at its necessary speed. The noise level can reduce to 11dBA. This guarantees ultra-quiet noise level without compromising on the cooling performance.

The Engine 17 perfectly solves the co-existing problem of high performance RAM and CPU coolers, achieving the best RAM clearance."

In this review, we look at the Raijintek Leto Pro RGB CPU cooler. The unit itself is a dual fan 120mm cooler that sports a relatively slimline single tower heatsink. paired with addressable RGB fans, this product could look great in any DiY PC, for those that shy away from LCS units.

Last fall I spent weeks testing and retesting a whole collection of ITX focused heatsinks that had AM4 support. At the time the first ITX boards were just coming out and a lot of the coolers didn’t support the new socket and those that did most people didn’t know how they would perform when packing 6 and 8 core CPUs into the form factor. I highly recommend everyone check out the article. Well, not to long after that Noctua introduced two more heatsinks and I’ve been wanting to see how they compare. I finally got around to it and today we are going to check out the NH-L12S and the NH-L9a-AM4.

"If you are purchasing a M.2 drive because you need high transfer speeds, seeing our results probably threw up a big red flag for you. Having a high speed drive is great, but not so much if the speed only lasts a couple of seconds. Luckily, in most situations the Samsung 950 Pro drive actually lasts a good amount of time under full load before it begins to throttle. For those that need a M.2 drive to run at full speed for longer periods of time, however, we decided to run some quick tests to compare a number of different M.2 drive cooling methods."

"While NVMe M.2 SSDs can be mighty fast, they also generate a surprising amount of heat to the point that some of these drives will end up thermal throttling if there is too much I/O activity for a prolonged amount of time. The TP02-M2 is designed for M.2 2280 length solid-state drives and is quite a simple but practical product if wishing to help dissipate the heat from high performance M.2 SSDs."
