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.

be quiet! looks to recapture the high-end air-cooling crown with the new and improved Dark Rock Pro 4. It is a dual-fan, dual-tower design that will certainly turn a few heads. However, it won't be due to noise. Silent and powerful, this new challenger looks to dethrone Noctua's NH-D15.

We test and review the be quiet! Dark Rock 4 CPU Cooler. Armed with totally black looks and a very silent fan, the new Dark Rock 4 might be able to impress you. It offers 200 Watts of cooling power, enough for most processors and a bit of overclocking, it, however, remains ridiculously silent.

We review another be quiet! Dark Rock series cooler, this round the PRO 4. Again with totally black looks the flagship cooler comes with two radiators, two fans and takes up that cooling performance towards 200 Watts of cooling power, enough for any processor and some tweaking of course as well.

be quiet! has built an excellent reputation for its air coolers over the years, with previous models in the Dark Rock series boasting impressive thermal performance as well as low noise levels. The downside, however, has always been the unnecessarily fiddly installation method which surely must have put off many a potential buyer. With its new Dark Rock 4, be quiet! is hoping to provide the excellent performance we have come to expect, but with a much easier installation process.

"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.

www.frostytech.com

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 OCinside.de, 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.
