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. 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

With the introduction of the Intel Kaby Lake processors and Intel Z270 chipset, unprecedented overclocking became the norm. The new processors easily hit a core speed of 5.0GHz with little more than CPU core voltage tweaking. This overclocking performance increase came with a price tag. The Kaby Lake processor runs significantly hotter than previous generation processors, a seeming reversal in temperature trends from previous generation Intel CPUs. At stock settings, the individual cores in the CPU were recording in testing at hitting up to 65C - and that's with a high performance water loop cooling the processor. Per reports from various enthusiasts sites, Intel used inferior TIM (thermal interface material) in between the CPU die and underside of the CPU heat spreader, leading to increased temperatures when compared with previous CPU generations (in particular Skylake). This temperature increase did not affect overclocking much since the CPU will hit 5.0GHz speed easily, but does impact the means necessary to hit those performance levels.

The CRYORIG A40 Ultimate may lack RGB LEDs or other fancy additions, but it makes up for it in performance, and even adds a pretty cool little fan over the water block.

Scythe is looking to slice through the competition like a samurai on horseback with the Kabuto 3. Utilizing a top-flow design that's more compact than similar offerings, it delivers excellent noise levels paired with a good price/performance ratio.

The XTC700 CPU cooler isn’t the first for Gigabyte. A quick google check reveals G-Power II Pro. So its safe to assume Gigabyte has a good deal of expertise to make a good CPU cooler. This is a 120mm CPU tower then pre-installed dual ball bearing fans with RGB accents for its logo. It supports a wide range of CPU sockets, including the phased out ones. As long as it doesn’t come in the way or affect cooling performance, nobody would care about that.

"In case you missed it, we recently checked out and reviewed the Kraken X52 AiO water cooling system. Not only does it have a super unique pump casing which features a sweet RGB LED infinity mirror on the top, but the performance was top level as well. As with most companies, NZXT of course offers the same cooler in several different sizes. In the lab today we’ve got the top dog on the block, the X62. The X62 features the same awesome pump and boosts performance up a notch by adding a larger 280mm radiator. Follow along as we find out if this next step is worth the upgrade and worth your extra cash."

RGB lighting is the current trend these days, appearing in everything from keyboards and mice to less obvious items like motherboards and mouse pads. While LED-lit fans have been around for years, leave it to Corsair to take it to the next level with their Corsair HD120 RGB fans. You can buy these fans individually, but today Benchmark Reviews is testing the HD120 RGB three-pack of fans with the included fan hub and controller (model CO-9050067-WW).

"Panasonic's New "NASBIS" Insulating Sheets stands for
Nano Silica Balloon Insulator Sheet. This new addition to Panasonic's line of Thermal Management solutions is a thin, flexible Nano-Silica heat insulation material composed of silica aerogel and polyester fiber that has high thermal isolative properties. The thermal conductivity of NASBIS is lower than that of air, making it a very attractive material for heat insulation. NASBIS Sheets protect thermally weak products from heat and works to maintain a uniform temperature throughout a device.

When combined in a stack with Panasonic's Pyrolytic Graphite Sheet, or PGS, NASBIS Insulating Sheets enable the control of heat direction. This proprietary composite material provides greater heat insulating performance.

Feaures: Low Thermal Conductivity: 0.014 – 0.02 W/m • K, Thin and Flexible, Thicknesses Range from 100µm to 1,000µm, NASBIS Sheets Are Covered With Polyester (PET) Tape and Offered With Adhesive, NASBIS / PGS Composite Stacks Provide Optimal Thermal Management Solutions"

”When it comes to performance, the R7 1800X, R7 1700X, and R7 1700 all deliver exceptional performance. Not only when you compare against AMD's own FX previous generation CPU's, but against Intel's new Kaby Lake Core i7 7700K and Haswell-E 8C/16T Core i7 5960X. In heavy multi-threaded workloads, the Ryzen processors provide comparable or better performance across the board. In single threaded applications, the boost clock speeds drive performance to comparable levels when the core clock speeds are not too far apart. The Core i7 7700K at 4.9GHz is still going to outperform the R7 1800X at 4GHz single threaded. Where Summit Ridge shines is in that multi-threaded workload environment. Single threaded performance is not bad to say the least, especially when you compare to the FX line up. It's safe to say AMD hit its performance targets."

It’s finally here and its finally time to talk about. The AMD Ryzen processor is being released onto the world and based on the buildup of excitement over the last week or so since pre-orders began, details on just how Ryzen performs relative to Intel’s mainstream and enthusiast processors are a hot commodity. While leaks have been surfacing for months and details seem to be streaming out from those not bound to the same restrictions we have been, I think you are going to find our analysis of the Ryzen 7 1800X processor to be quite interesting and maybe a little different as well.

What we want to focus on today, though, is the NSG-S0 – a chassis with integrated cooling for your CPU and graphics card. What makes the NSG-S0 special is the fact that it is completely fanless, and thus completely silent.
