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.

We have the Scythe Fuma for review today, a CPU cooler Scythe claim to be a smaller CPU cooler without “sacrificing performance”. The Fuma can be traced back to the Scythe Mine 2 CPU Cooler, with development in two main areas, base plate design and fin structures. We know the Mine 2 and it works well, though it’s now an older generation of cooler. Moving on to the Fuma, Scythe have also included a pair of Slip Stream series fans to help move the warm air away from the Twin-Tower design heatsink.

Cooler Master’s MasterCase 5 was one of the my favorite cases that I reviewed last year. I awarded it a perfect 10 out of 10 score and our Editor’s Choice Award. I liked the case so much that I made it a the base case that we use for CPU cooler reviews. Cooler Master has really reinvented themselves with their MasterCase Series of cases and today they are launching the MasterCase Pro 3 case. This case is very much like the MasterCase Pro 5, but smaller only supporting MicroATX motherboards. The case still will feature that solid design we know the MasterCase Series for, the FreeForm modular system which makes relocating parts and upgrading easy, removable radiator brackets, SSD mounts, and much more. Let’s take a look at what Cooler Master’s latest case has to offer."

Cooler Master is a brand reinvented. For a long time they were one of the top dogs with some of the most popular cases and CPU coolers on the market but at some point sort of lost that luxurious position. Their reimagining focused mostly around being a company for the “Makers” AKA modders and builders. Featuring a whole new level of expandability and customization among their product offerings, CM aims to be the brand of modders. As well as changing their image, CM is now moving past a difficult time in their AiO history and today we’ll be taking a look at their newest offering in that category; the MasterLiquid Pro 240.
This cooler is one of four in the family and is a clear bid to place CM back at the top of the very competitive all in one liquid cooling segment. Follow along as we find out if this 240mm cooler has what it takes to compete with the best."

Scythe, most people will know them. In case you don’t, Scythe have been around for years and they have a notable reputation in cooling, that means sites like Hardwareslave, will always take note of their products. We have a couple of coolers coming in the next couple of weeks and we start with the Scythe Ninja 4. We recently reviewed the Scythe Grand Kama Cross 3 and last year we tested the Scythe Mugen MAX. Both scored well and we were happy to see Scythe still around after all these years.

This time on we have a review of the Arctic Accelero Hybrid III-140, an alternate GPU cooler. The Accelero series has tradition among Arctics product. Arctic released their first GPU cooler under this name in 2006. The Hybrid-III, as the name suggests, is a hybrid cooling solution, meaning it got elements from both conventional air- as also water-cooling. All-in-one cooling solutions for CPUs already got a fair amount of market share, so why not transition it to GPUs?! We will find out if it is that easy in our Arctic Accelero Hybrid III-140 video card cooler test.

Japanese cooling expert Scythe announces today the third version of the famous TOP-Flow-CPU-Cooler Scythe Kabuto. Scythe engineers have revamped the heatsink design as well as the heatsink structure of the Kabuto 3 and incorporated a hybrid heatpipe system. This hybrid system consists of two 6 mm and three 8 mm high-quality copper heatpipes. Compatibility to high-end memory modules has been an important aspect when designing the Kabuto 3, which is a big advantage compared to the predecessor.
Scythe Kabuto 3 CPU Cooler has been fitted with a matching Scythe Glide Stream 120 Millimeter fan with the model number SY1225HB12M-CIP. The Glide Stream fan series is equipped with a redesigned small center hub as well as fan blades. Hence allows the reduction of air resistance and therefore lower operating noise. The PWM-enabled 120 mm fan operates in the fan speed range from 300 to 1.400 rpm, offering sufficient airflow from 21,96 to 113,34 m³/h (12,93 ~ 79,0 CFM) at noise levels from 4 to maximum 28,0 dB(A).

Kabuto 3 offers additional airflow to cool the surrounding components such as Chipset, memory, VRMs and other components located around the CPU Socket. Outstanding performance is assured thanks to the hybrid system: Kabuto 3 features three 8-mm high-quality copper heatpipes on the center and two additional with 6-mm diameter on the outside. All five heatpipes are connected with the carefully manufactured copper baseplate to exactly fit the heatpipes, which results in improved heat transfer and an overall better performance. The copper heatpipes and the copper baseplate are nickel-plated in order to avoid corrosion.
Kabuto 3 can be mounted even in compact PC cases thanks to the revamped design, the improved arrangement and shape of the heatpipes. The space between motherboard and heatsink avoids interference and provides excellent compatibility to large memory modules or VRM coolers. Scythe equipped the Kabuto 3 with a mounting system, which allows quick, easy and secure mounting procedure on various sockets. The list of compatible CPU Sockets features the Intel® Sockets LGA775, LGA1150, LGA1151, LGA1155, LGA1156, LGA1366 as well as the AMD® Sockets AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, FM2 and FM2+.

The new Scythe Kabuto 3 with the Model-No. SCKBT- 3000 is available as of today on the European market with the MSRP of 38,00 € (VAT/Taxes not included).
