Silverstone's Tundra TD02 CPU liquid cooler offers up some refreshing design elements for the computer enthusiast looking to assemble a system that stands out from the crowd. In place of the standard black heat exchanger we find something vaguely reminiscent of a Mac, or a Star Wars set... UPDATED! This is a review of the Silverstone Tundra TD03 self contained liquid cooling system. The Tundra TD03 consists of a waterblock with integrated copper base plate attached to a small 120mm heat exchanger via 310mm long white FEP tubing. Arctic's Liquid Freezer 120 ships fully assembled, plumbed and filled. The whole system weighs around 942grams and installs onto Intel socket LGA115x/2011(-3) processors and AMD. The Scythe Mugen 5 Rev B (SCMG-5100) heatsink is a lower-noise tower cooler standing 154mm tall and equipped with a single 120mm PWM fan. The Mugen 5 Rev B is constructed around six 6mm diameter nickel plated heatspipes which are swaged onto an array of raw aluminum cooling fins. 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.

  Corsair’s QL-series of fans are available in 120mm and 140mm, with both being available individually, or in multi-packs. The 120mm can be purchased in a triple pack and the 140mm in double packs. Each multi-pack comes with an iCUE Lighting Node CORE which can control up to six of the brand new QL RGB fans, as well as other Corsair RGB fans, through a single USB 2.0 internal header.

  Today, we are reviewing an AIO cooler from Silverstone: the Permafrost PF240. Silverstone is not entirely a newcomer in the AIO segment of the market. In the past, they introduced the Tundra series (120/240 mm), which was available in an RGB version as well.

  With a polished silver heat spreader and a pastel RGB LED diffuser that is available in seven different colors, the PRISM II RGB kit from V-Color certainly has flair. This premium kit has the perfect sweet spot for Ryzen performance with a 3600 MHz XMP profile and is affordably priced to boot.

  At this point, nearly everyone has their own RGB fans on the market but really only a few companies have been innovating at all. Corsair has been at the forefront of that so much so that Corsair and RGB lighting has become a meme sometimes on Reddit. Its okay Corsair, this is a safe space, we can talk about your love for RGB. Specifically, I want to talk a little about their new QL series of RGB fans that is launching today. I’ve had them around the office for a few weeks and I’ve had time to play around with them a little. Corsairs' big change with QL fans is that they have “spectacular lighting from any angle”. With lighting similar to their Light Loop fans, only this time around they doubled up and have lighting on the back as well and the edges have the lighting visible as well.

  One fan. 34 addressable RGB LEDs. That alone will be enough for many to decide if the new CORSAIR iCUE QL RGB fan is for you. Coming in both 120 and 140 mm sizes, CORSAIR's latest fans can do double duty and light up your house for the holiday season, in addition to your new PC build.

  Since AMD is on the cusp of releasing its 3^rd generation of Ryzen Threadripper high-end desktop processors, we thought this would be an ideal time to return to testing socket TR4 CPU coolers or sTRX4 as it is soon to be known, on our Ryzen Threadripper 2950X test bench.

  AMD today uncovers the Ryzen 9 3950X performance benchmarks, we reviewed the processor extensively. It's the Ryzen 3000 processor with the sixteen cores, thirty-two threads cores and the fastest single-core clock at 4.7 GHz. It is fast, feisty and agile in any way you look at it.

AMD didn’t hit the initial September release target Dr. Su had originally mentioned for the Ryzen 9 3950X, citing stronger than anticipated demand for currently shipping products. The Ryzen 9 3950X is due to ship in a coupe of weeks though, alongside those beastly new Threadrippers, and we were lucky enough to take one for a spin. We don’t want to spoil the rest of the review for you right out of the gate, but as you’ll see, the new AMD Ryzen 9 3950X was absolutely worth the wait...

  EK Water Blocks adds to their fan portfolio with the massive 38 mm thick Meltemi. Available in their -ER (extended range) version, the EK-Meltemi aims to take their popular Vardar fan as a base and build upon it with a bigger, badder motor, and promises high static pressure optimization for PC DIY water cooling.

  The NZXT H510i may look like the H500i at first sight, but this is just the natural result of an extremely good, solid design mentality as the case still looks as great as ever. However, with the update, you will find various subtle but mostly justified changes that certainly warrant a new model number.

  Intel has been talking about its Core i9-9900KS processor for months now. It was all the way back in May that the company first revealed what would become the new flagship processor in its mainstream computing platform. The Core i9-9900KS is not something totally new, however. As the “S” in its name implies, the Core i9-9900KS is something akin to a special edition of the existing Core i9-9900K. The processors are built from the same slab of silicon – an 8-core, Coffee Lake-refresh based die, packaged up for Intel’s LGA1151 socket. What makes the Core i9-9900KS different from its predecessor are its base and turbo boost clocks, in addition to its TDP. Whereas the Core i9-9900K has a base-clock of 3.6GHz and a single-core turbo boost clock of 5GHz, the Core i9-9900KS cranks the base clock up to an even 4GHz and all eight of its cores can turbo up 5GHz...

  "Today the Intel Core i9 9900KS is shipping at $513 USD for this specially-binned Coffeelake CPU that is capable of achieving a 5.0GHz all-core turbo frequency. The all-core 5.0GHz turbo is great, but it remains an eight-core / sixteen-thread 14nm processor going up against AMD's similarly priced Ryzen 9 3900X. Here are our initial benchmarks of the Core i9 9900KS compared to the Core i9 9900K and Ryzen 9 3900X."

  Akasa have released an aluminium fanless case for the new Raspberry Pi 4 Model B. The Akasa Pi-4 heatsink / case is a customised thermal kit with heatsink top cover to dissipate heat away from the hot zones, namely the Raspberry Pi CPU, GPU and USB 3.0 chipset, effectively cooling the Raspberry Pi 4 chipset and ensuring the system runs heavy workload. Akasa's heatsink top has a black sandblasted, anodised aluminum finish to give the Pi-4 a refined look and feel. The case will look great in any environment as an HTPC, web server, NAS or otherwise. Compact and sturdy, according to the manufacturer.

www.frostytech.com

The Pi-4 thermal kit consists of two aluminium blocks, hi-performance thermal pads and compound. Measuring 6 mm thick, the heatsink top cover takes the heat passed upwards from the aluminium blocks and dissipates it into the air. Extruded fins on the top cover increase surface area to aide heat dissipation. Coupled together, the thermal kit and heatsink top cover reduce temperatures in the Rasberry Pi 4 chipset. Using the Raspberry Pi 4 dual 4K video capabilities, the GPU can get quite hot. The thermal kit of the Akasa Pi-4 was designed for such thermal situations and significantly reduces the GPU temperature.

www.frostytech.com

Akasa will have a mounting kit for the Pi-4 shortly, to accommodates wall mounting or DIN rail, making the Pi-4 ideal for a range of commercial and industrial applications.
