UPDATED! 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.

The most notable change the LP MK.2 sees, however, is on the switch front. As the LP MK.2 is a lot slimmer, Corsair couldn’t exactly install the regular switches Cherry make, so instead, they’ve selected Cherry’s new low profile switch, will this have a negative impact on the performance?

"Small form factor builds are more popular than ever, especially with many people building these little powerful LAN rigs. The one issue when it comes to all small form factor builds is space. You are only going to have so much space inside that mini-ITX case and you might not be able to fit that AiO or large tower cooler in there. Don’t worry though, Cryorig has you covered with their C7 low-profile CPU cooler. Recently they released a Cu or Copper version of this cooler that features an all-copper heatsink design, which they say gives the cooler 15% improved performance over the normal C7. Is this the cooler you need for your mini-ITX build? Read on as we find out!"

Japanese cooling expert Scythe presents the fifth generation of its popular all-round Katana CPU cooler. This new version comes with a revamped asymmetric heatsink design and total height of only 135 mm, offering unrestricted compatibility to mainboards and memory modules. The second generation of the Easy Clip Mounting System (E.C.M.S) assures a fast and easy installation process. Another key innovation of the Katana 5 is the newly developed Kaze Flex 92 PWM fan. It combines the high-quality Sealed Precision Fluid Dynamic Bearing with anti-vibration rubber spacers for silent operation and long lifespan.

The Katana series ever since the initial release aimed for great versatility. Scythe underlines this further with the release of the Katana 5, which offers optimum performance at compact dimensions and an advanced multi-socket mounting system at a competitive price. The fifth generation offers even more added value by incorporating a band new asymmetric heatsink design for unrestricted compatibility to both mainboard components and memory modules. In addition to that, all three high-quality copper heatpipes as well as the massive copper-baseplate have been nickel-plated for the fifth generation. This upgrade protects the copper from corrosion and lets Katana 5 look more unified.

Katana 5 is the first CPU Cooler that is bundled with the new Kaze Flex 92 mm PWM fan. This new fan is equipped with Scythe’s high-quality Sealed Precision Fluid Dynamic Bearing (Sealed Precision FDB), offering more quiet running and a long life-span of 120.000 hours. Transmission of vibrations is prevented by incorporating special rubber spacers in the corners of the frame. The Kaze Flex 92 mm fan is well balanced in order to suite the high demands of the majority of users. Thanks to the PWM support, it is able to flexibly adjust the fan speed from 300 to 2.300 RPM while operating at amazingly low noise levels from 7,3 to 28,83 dBA. This exceptional quietness is achieved without compromising the airflow, as the Kaze Flex 92 PWM is delivering volumetric flow from 11,46 to 83,04 m³/h.

Being able to be easily installed on all major CPU sockets has been another key advantage of the Katana series. Katana 5 comes with already pre-installed Intel™ Push-Pin mounting clips, ready to be mounted on Intel™ sockets out of the box. Installation on AMD™ mainboards is equally simple, as users have to only replace the two brackets and the Katana 5 is ready to be fitted on the retention module. The improved second generation Easy Clip Mounting System (E.C.M.S) on Katana 5 assures a convenient and secure mounting process while supporting Intel™ sockets LGA775, LGA115X and LGA1366 as well as AMD™ sockets AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, FM2, FM2+ and AM4. The package includes the Katana 5 with the mounting clips as well as thermal grease and one Kaze Flex 92 mm PWM fan with the mounting fan clips. The new Scythe Katana 5 with the Model-No. SCKTN-5000 is available as of today with the MSRP at 23,50€ (VAT/Taxes not included).

The new Cyberpower Hyper Liquid Threadripper RTX system features a Threadripper CPU and an Nvidia RTX 2080 ti graphics card. As it fits within the Cyberpower ‘Hyper Liquid II’ range it also features a hardline custom liquid cooling loop for the processor – to keep the AMD Threadripper 2950X’s temperatures under control. The extreme 32 threads should make the Threadripper RTX system dominate in multi-threaded use cases like rendering, and paired with the 2080 TI should also excel at gaming, but does this parts selection justify the £3,900 premium price?

With Apple and non-Apple notebook vendors keen to launch slim models, magnesium-lithium alloy is expected to become an increasingly popular material for notebook casings, according to Jonathan C Lin, chief operating officer at Amli Materials Technology, a Taiwan-based supplier of light metals.

The growing adoption of magnesium-lithium alloy by notebook vendors is due mainly to distinct traits of the material, Lin said. He noted that magnesium is the world's lightest metal with a density of only 0.53 gram/per cubic centimeter, and magnesium-lithium alloy is the lightest commercial alloy, with density reaching only 1.48 grams/cubic centimeter, almost only half the figure of 2.72 grams/cubic centimeter for aluminum alloy.

Besides lightweight, magnesium-lithium alloy also boasts better intensity, extensibility, dissimilarity, and heat dissipation than magnesium alloy. The intensity of Amli's first-generation magnesium-lithium alloy adopted by Japan notebook makers reached 170Mpa, and that of its second-generation one has improved to 210-250 Mpa after incorporating aluminum, Lin disclosed, adding that the third-generation magnesium lithium alloy will be blended with rare earth to achieve even higher intensity.

But the cost for magnesium-lithium alloy is now still 2.5-3 times that of aluminum alloy, leading to lower penetration of the former in notebook production, according to Lin. But he said that the penetration of the new alloy is expected to pick up in 2019, when the cost gap may narrow significantly.

Magnesium-lithium alloy is also applicable to transportation vehicle and aerospace sectors, Lin said. Amli reportedly supplies the alloy to ISpace, a Japan developer of robotic spacecraft technologies, industry sources said."

Silence ADV 120 fans, but they are enhanced by a stylish RGB lighting with its own controller, remote control and the possibility to synchronize them with the motherboard. We are interested to see how these fans will perform in practice.

Corsair has been the market leader in the AIO liquid cooling market for a number of years offering a really varied range of not only smaller coolers for small form factor builds, but also much larger 280mm and 360mm variants for those chasing best performance. Lots of manufacturers are packaging LEDs, and RGB functionality into their cooler, Corsair being no exception, but the new Corsair Hydro Series H100i adds to their product ”Platinum” which as with power supplies suggests an air of supremacy. Two versions are available – the 240mm H100i priced at £124.99, and 280mm at £139.99 but with slightly better compatibility. We decided to take a look at the H100i, so let’s see how it holds up in our testing.
