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.

"This year at CES we noticed a very interesting CPU cooler in Cooler Master's suite, it was the MasterAir G100M. The reason this cooler really caught out attention was the unique design and RGB lights. The cooler more or less looks like a UFO with some awesome lighting.

Under the hood the G100M uses heat column technology that is 7X larger than normal heatpipes, a circular fin design, and a top-down air flow 92 mm cooling fan. The smaller size of the cooler also makes it very viable for mini-ITX builds. Let's get this cooler in our test system and see what it can do!"

When Fractal Design launched the Meshify C ATX case we knew it was only a matter of time before we saw a smaller version and six months later we have the grandly titled Fractal Design Meshify C Mini TG Dark Tint. We might try to jazz up this review and claim we’re looking at an entirely new case but the truth of the situation is that Meshify C Mini is a Micro-ATX version of the Meshify C.

The Japanese cooling expert Scythe extends its product portfolio by a new Top-Flow CPU Cooler model. The new Choten CPU Cooler is able to effectively cool the CPU as well as the surrounding components thanks to the Top-Flow design by pushing the air towards the motherboard. This air circulation has a positive effect on system stability and life span of the components. Great performance along with unrestricted compatibility to high-end memory modules have been among the key factors when designing the Choten. This has been achieved by applying the asymmetric heatsink design combined with high precision manufacturing and high quality materials. The Choten CPU Cooler is bundled with the Scythe Kaze Flex 120 PWM fan and assures an easy fit into the majority of PC chassis thanks to a total height of only 120 millimeters.

Scythe Choten utilizes a total of four high-quality 6 mm copper heatpipes which are connecting the solid copper-baseplate with the fin-stack. The copper parts, such as the baseplate and heatpipes are covered by a layer of nickel, which prevents corrosion and improves the quality further. Aligning the aluminium heatsink parallel to the baseplate has the advantage that the airflow of the attached fan is guided toward the mainboard. In result, all the components surrounding the CPU socket are able to benefit from this air circulation. Outstanding memory module compatibility is achieved thanks to the asymmetric heatsink design as well as the big clearance between the heatsink and the motherboard.

The Choten CPU cooler is bundled with an axial fan from Scythe’s high quality Kaze Flex 120 PWM series. This model covers a wide PWM fan speed range starting at 300 RPM and going up until 1.200 RPM. Users are able to adjust the fan speed curve according to their requirements using the motherboards fan controller. The supplied fan model delivers steady airflow from 28,2 to 86,93 m³/h at low noise levels from 4 to maximum 24,9 dBA. The Kaze Flex 120 PWM fan series features a long lifespan of 120.000 hours (MTTF) and quiet running thanks to the high-quality Sealed Precision FDB. The fan frame is fitted with rubber shock absorbers in the corners of the fan to prevent the transfer of any vibration.

With the goal to meet the requirements of the majority of users, especially those building their first PC, a simple and fast mounting process is crucial. Scythe’s recently developed second revision of the „Easy Clip Mounting System“ (E.C.M.S. II) is used to achieve that goal. The Choten CPU Cooler comes with pre-installed clips for Intel® sockets, which are based on the easy-to-mount Push-Pin clips. The mounting clip for the AMD® sockets on the other hand, is utilizing the original AMD® retention module on the mainboard. 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, FM2+ and AM4. The product package includes the mounting clips, thermal grease and a multi-lingual installation guide.

The new Scythe Choten with the Model-No. SCCT-1000 is available now with the MSRP at 29,30€ (VAT/Taxes not included).

Today we are testing two coolers, namely the H7 and H7 Quad Lumi from Cryorig. We will check if there are other differences besides RGB lighting and of course show the beautiful lighting effects in our OCinside YouTube channel. There are also more videos in the review and two brand new 360 degree views on the third page, which we will use more often now on, so you can look at the cooler and a few other products from all sides.

Today, we’ve been provided with the Raijintek ORCUS 240, an all-in-one watercooling loop for your CPU, featuring a pair of 120mm RGB fans, an RGB CPU header and Teflon sleeved tubing. Something we’ve not seen before is the pump mounted on the tubes themselves, instead of being within the CPU head itself.

The MLC Phoenix from EKWB offers custom liquid-cooling performance with the plug-and-play functionality of a closed-loop cooler. Utilizing their QDC fitting, this modular unit overcomes one of the biggest hurdles for proper liquid cooling, which is building it all yourself. It's so easy even a noob can do it. Well, if they can afford it, that is.

The Hydro H150i Pro RGB may be a great AIO liquid CPU cooler but because of its length it's just not for everyone. With the "shorter" Hydro H115i Pro RGB CORSAIR solves that issue for many people not only without sacrificing performance but also with reduced noise.

Let's be honest, both some of the best heatsinks and fans are Noctua’s, especially when you are looking for low noise output. The problem is they have been very stuck on their brown and tan color scheme. The benefit is that when you see them you know exactly what it is and you know it is a quality product. They ignored the clear and glowing transparent fan fad that came and went but with cases and other hardware sticking with black they resisted changing to it. A few years ago they did bring out their Industrial PPC fans that were black but they were much more expensive and even though they are great fans a lot of people have looked other directions when swapping out their fans. Well a while back Noctua expanded their Chromax lineup with a new line of fans, new cables, and covers for most of their heatsinks that help give people color options for trim and finally fans and coolers that won’t stand out like a sore thumb while still giving people Noctua quality. I’ve had them in the office for a while and as I work on catching up I just recently got a chance to play with them when a build I put together just wasn’t going with the Noctua cooler that I put in it.

We might be late to the party, but we did finally get a Vega card into the office and I have been testing it and getting a feel for it. Like Ryzen, the Vega launch was hyped up over an extended period of time because AMD fans have been looking forward to being able to rejoin the high-end market. The RX580 is a good card but when you are looking to game at 1440 or 4k your options have just been the GTX 1070, GTX 1080, and recently the GTX 1080 Ti. Well AMD is back, they do have a few options up in the high-end range again. Of course, there has been a lot of drama as well, today I’m going to check out performance now that Vega has been out for a little while. Talk about the differences between the cards, and take a closer look at the RX Vega 64 Liquid Cooled model that AMD sent over.
