See all Noctua heatsink reviews available [X]
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. While Scythe doesn't overtly market its heatsinks as DeepCool's Maelstrom 240 is a self contained CPU liquid 
cooling system consists of a dual fan, 240mm wide aluminum heat 
exchanger and combination pump head / skived copper waterblock. With Frostytech's synthetic thermal test platforms applying up to a 200W heat load, only we can accurately rank how the Maelstrom 240 liquid cooler stacks up DeepCool's Gamer Storm Lucifer K2 heatsink is a revised version of the original Gamer Storm Lucifer heatsink, which Frostytech tested about a year back. The Lucifer K2 heatsink only differs in that it's not nickel plated and ships with a slim profile (20mm thick)120mm fan which makes the heatsink a little more accommodating on confined motherboards.

"Now, we've known that most CPUs equipped with an IHS — all desktop models for a decade — are either flat or have slight concavity. We've discussed this in the forums and in many of our heatsink reviews (like the one mentioned above). Thermalright is named explicitly by this contact, but many other heatsinks have slightly convex bases as well. They include models from Prolimatech, Phanteks, Scythe and a few from Noctua. Some of these heatsinks feature mounting mechanisms capable of very high pressure. All, not surprisingly, have had models that performed very well on our 1366 test platform. Our LGA1366 CPU has taken them all on; the implication is that it must be more concave than it was when new. "

Today we’ll be putting CRYORIG’s A40 Ultimate under the spotlight. The A40 Ultimate is a 240mm all-in-one liquid CPU cooler which has the added bonus of arriving with a supplementary 70mm airflow fan designed to assist with easing off those temperatures for the motherboard MOSFETs or memory. This liquid cooler also benefits from Asetek’s 5th generation pump so we’re anticipating good things from today’s observation.

"CRYORIG burst on to the cooling scene not that long ago and every cooler we’ve seen from them has been pretty impressive. The coolers we’ve reviewed from CRYORIG have been their high performance coolers, but what about someone who just needs a basic cooler? Something better than the stock cooler that comes with their processor? When it comes to a basic cooler there are a few things we believe it needs to have. First and most importantly it needs to have better performance than a stock CPU cooler that ships with the processor. Secondly it needs to be easy to install, no one wants a complicated install process, especially a first time builder. And finally, it needs to be affordable. CRYORIG thinks that they have a cooler that fits these specifications in their M9 CPU Cooler. They say it is 33% cooler than the Intel stock cooler, it shouldn’t take more than a few minutes to install, and currently the cooler is selling for $25.99 at our favorite online retailer. Seems too good to be true? Let’s jump in and see what the M9i is all about!"

The brand new Macho 120 SBM CPU cooler by Thermalright lands right between the older Macho 120 Rev.A and the newer Macho Zero models in terms of size so it should offer a way out for consumers looking for a mid-sized model to fit in their rig.

The FiercePC Imperial Stormer is a gaming PC that squeezes a custom-built water-cooling loop and some very nifty lighting effects into a rather svelte Corsair Chassis. This enables a mighty 4.7GHz overclock for the Intel Core i7-6700K, which coupled with a GeForce GTX 970 – delivers some very good performance results.

Rumours of the AMD FX processor's death has been greatly exaggerated. Five years old and still going — ancient by typical CPU-age metrics but have newfound relevance with the rise of VR. Both the AMD FX 6350 and FX 8350 pass the SteamVR performance test with flying colors, scoring high when paired with a GeForce GTX 970 or a Radeon …

"On der uns gelieferten Schachtel findet sich damit neben dem Prozessor natürlich auch der neue Kühler mit Namen Wraith. Der steigt in den Maßen und Gewicht an und blickt auf etwa 18 x 10 x 8 Zentimeter (B x L x H). Das Konstrukt besteht wie üblich aus Aluminiumfinnen und Kupferbodenplatte, allerdings auch zwei Heatpipes des 6-mm-Standards, und bringt rund 450 Gramm Gewicht auf die Waage. Die Belüftung übernimmt ein 90-mm-Fan, welcher als Topblower oben auf dem Kühler aufsitzt und mit maximal 3.200 Umdrehungen pro Minute arbeiten könnte. Der Lüfter kommt mit einem 4-Pin-Molex-Anschluss daher und wird über die Steuerungen moderner Hauptlatinen damit in seiner Drehzahl geregelt."

With the Kraken X41, NZXT has an all-in-one watercooler in its portfolio, that comes with the a rather slim radiator and one 140 millimeter fan in the delivery. At a first look the design is looking good while you get a black radiator and a fan with white rotor. Overall we're now rather curious to find out what this cooler can do in terms of cooling and noise levels

The Asus Republic Of Gamers GX700 is the world’s first liquid cooled production laptop. We’re only using the word ‘production’ as you know there will be a modder out there saying ‘Nope, I liquid cooled mine years ago.’ So, ROG GX700 is a gaming laptop with Skylake Core i7 CPU and GTX 980 GPU that comes with an external water cooling dock and is actually available for purchase.

Advanced Thermal Solutions now provides the base-and-stem Candlestick sensor for simultaneously measuring air temperature and velocity when characterizing thermal conditions inside electronic systems. The ATS Candlestick sensor is narrow and low profile, in heights of 9, 12 and 20mm. These features minimize the disturbance of airborne heat flow in the test domain for more precise measurements.

The use of a single sensor to measure both temperature and velocity eliminates errors that can occur when airflow is non-isothermal. Multiple ATS Candlestick sensors can be used to thoroughly map an entire system’s thermal and airflow conditions. The sensors’ robust nature allows for continuous repositioning and reading. Their all plastic design prevents electronic shorting.

Candlestick sensors are calibrated for low (natural convection) and high velocity flows. They are capable of temperature measurements ranging from -20° to +120°C, ±1°C. Velocity measurements range from 0 to 50m/s (0 to 10,000ft/min), ±2%, depending on the particular model of sensor. The base diameter for all Candlestick sensor models is 9.5mm. The stem diameter is 0.5mm and bead diameter is 1.1mm. Double-sided adhesive is available for long term mounting. Wire lengths are available up to 30 meters. More information on Candlestick sensors is available on the Advanced Thermal Solutions website, or by calling 1-781-769-2800.

SilverStone is back on eTeknix again today, with their new AR07 and AR08 CPU coolers. Both coolers are designed to be affordable, quiet, stylish and pack great value for money performance. We’re going to be putting both of them on our test bench today, and while we’re expecting the bigger AR07 to offer up better performance, we’re still eager to see what the smaller and more affordable AR08 is capable of.

"You’ve done it all so far, designed and built your first loop, upgraded and expanded that loop to include your GPU but still you’ve got a desire to watercool more. Well rather than building a whole new rig, there are options out there to take your watercooling to a whole new level. This is where things get sort of technically difficult and you are going to be voiding some warranties as well. After CPU and GPU blocks the next most popular would be Memory and Motherboard blocks. Both of these require you to remove the stock heat spreaders and can potentially damage parts and just as often voids your warranty. For our rig, there is no motherboard block available, instead we are going to go ahead and demonstrate how to install water blocks on your memory."
