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.

  Bringing the Ryzen 9 3950X to market hasn’t been plain sailing for AMD. Significant setbacks in the production delayed shipments from September to November, and even then, only a limited quantity were available at launch, but that’s more than likely down to the sheer popularity these Zen2 processors have posed; TSMC’s fabrication plants can’t cope with the demand. A blessing and a curse, we think.

The European cooling and PC Case brand SilentiumPC presents the improved version of its Fortis 3 CPU cooler. For the Fortis 3 RGB HE1425, SilentiumPC has applied nickel-plating of the whole heat sink, which on the one hand visually enhances the tower cooler and on the other hand protects the material from corrosion. The tower cooler is also equipped with the brand-new Stella HP RGB 140 mm SE PWM fan, which not only enables modern RGB lighting, but is also more powerful at the same time. SilentiumPC is able to enrich the market with an improved and powerful tower cooler, which is particularly suitable for PC upgrades as well as new PC systems with modern RGB lighting.

In the course of the modernization of the Fortis 3, SilentiumPC gives the Fortis 3 RGB a finishing touch. The difference to the predecessor model can be seen right away, due to the fact that the Fortis 3 RGB has all copper elements as well as the aluminum fins carefully nickel-plated. This gives the tower cooler a uniform, high-quality look and protects the material from corrosion.

The black coated top plate features covers for the heatpipe end pieces and the embossed SilentiumPC logo. Thanks to the five 6 mm copper heat pipes that form the base plate contact surface on the Fortis 3 RGB and the large cooling surface, the tower cooler is capable of effectively cooling modern high-end processors.

The asymmetrical layout of the Fortis 3 RGB ensures optimum compatibility. The heat-sink is offset to the rear and thus provides sufficient space between the cooling fins and the motherboard, ensuring excellent RAM compatibility. Due to its overall height of 158 mm, the Fortis 3 RGB fits into most PC cases, which makes it a versatile all-rounder.

The newly developed Stella HP RGB 140 mm SE PWM fan is supplied with the Fortis 3 RGB. It offers a new rotor blade design with a total of 9 instead of 7 rotor blades to further improve both the performance and noise levels. Thanks to PWM support, the new fan operates in a speed range of 500 and 1.400 rpm and provides a high volume flow, making the Fortis 3 RGB ideal for cooling processors with high TDP.

The large 140 mm fan is also equipped with 9 bright RGB LEDs arranged in a circular pattern in the fan hub. The LEDs are capable of displaying 16 million colors and can also be combined with effects. The RGB lighting can be controlled either via the RGB lighting systems of motherboards such as Asus™ Aura, ASRock™ Polychrome Sync, EVGA™ RGB Header, MSI™ Mystic Light or Gigabyte™ Fusion 2.0 RGB or using the supplied Nano RGB control. The standard 4-pin RGB connector is used for this purpose, which simplifies installation.

Easy mounting process is also ensured thanks to SilentiumPC’s proven multi-socket mounting system for the Fortis 3 RGB. Compatible sockets include Intel™ Sockets LGA 1151, 1150, 1155, 1156, LGA 2066, 2011-3, 2011, LGA 1366, LGA 775 as well as AMD™ Sockets AM4, AM3(+), AM2(+), FM2(+) and FM1.

In addition to Nano Reset RGB Controller and mounting clips, the scope of delivery also includes the high-performance Pactum PT-2 thermal paste.

The SilentiumPC Fortis 3 RGB HE1425 CPU cooler is now available in online shops and an retail stores. The manufacturer's recommended retail price is € 42,90 (incl. VAT/taxes).

  "Cooler Master turned heads when they released their Wraith Ripper high-end desktop CPU cooler made for AMD’s Threadripper processors. This massive tower cooler not only looked impressive, but did a great job at cooling as well. Based on its success Cooler Master is releasing a version for mainstream desktop users called the MasterAir MA620M, which supports both AMD and Intel processors. This cooler features a dual tower heatsink design with 6 cooler heatpipes and a centrally-locatated SF120R 120 mm cooling fan. Cooler Master has kept the styling almost the same so the cooler looks like a single large heatsink with some RGB elements on the top. Can the MasterAir MA620M compete with other high performance air coolers out there? Read on as we find out!"

Sharkhan looks to conquer the entry-level cooler market with its APEX4 offering. This new release packs ARGB lighting, achieves solid temperatures and good noise levels. Priced at $30, the Sharkhan APEX4 doesn't break the bank either.

Bursting onto the all-in-one liquid CPU cooler scene, Sharkhan seeks to impress with their ARGB-equipped APEX 240. With all the LED lighting you could ever need, the 250-watt TDP might just be enough to tame your processor as well.

  We are back with another all-in-one CPU cooler review and today we will be taking an in-depth look at the latest iteration from the Deepcool Captain series. The Captain 240X may have a familiar appearance to users of current Captain series coolers. However, it does feature some subtle tweaks compared to previous generations.

  In this review we will be looking at the SilverStone PermaFrost PF360-ARGB. SilverStone noticed my comments in the PF240-ARGB review and asked if I would be interested in checking out their PermaFrost PF360 ARGB cooler. The AIO is virtually identical to the PF240 with the addition of a 360mm radiator. The extra surface area should help considerably with the overclocked load temperatures.

  The Liquid Freezer II does things differently to most AIO watercooling loops by incorporating a small blower-style fan into the pump assembly, providing cooling to nearby VRM components which can go without adequate airflow when using loops from other manufacturers.

"Researchers have identified a metal that conducts electricity without conducting heat, contradicting the Wiedemann-Franz Law which basically states that good conductors of electricity will also be proportionally good conductors of heat. The metal is metallic vanadium dioxide (VO2). To uncover this bizarre property, the team looked at the way that electrons move within vanadium dioxide's crystal lattice, as well as how much heat was being generated. The reason for this appears to be the synchronised way that the electrons move through the material."

  Head over to EKWB’s webstore and you will see they have a dedicated section for kits of liquid cooling hardware. The EK Classic RGB S360 kit that features in today’s review uses hardware from the budget Classic family and is supplied with a CPU block, a 140mm reservoir, an SPC pump and a 360mm radiator. The cherry on the cake is provided by the RGB that is a feature of the reservoir, CPU block and all three Vardar fans so you can expect high end cooling and loads of RGB at an attractive price.

  For as long as I've been aware of thermal cameras I have wanted one. In addition to being a really cool piece of technology it is uber useful. In my work at TechwareLabs.com we review a LOT of hardware, pretty much anything that uses electricity. That means heat, and at times quite a bit of it. Wouldn't it be handy to see the heat that any given object puts off? You could isolate sources of heat and cold, find out if one part is hotter than another and get its exact temperature within 0.06 degrees C. For the more analytical among us it would be cool to see if those larger heatpipes actually convey more heat no pun intended. Introducing the E6 from Flir, a Thermal Imager for your needs.
