Digitimes reports some good news for thermal solutions manufacturers in Taiwan; "Taiwan's cooling module suppliers are set for robust growth in 2020 and beyond driven by demand for heatpipe- or vapor chamber (VC)-based heat dissipation solutions from the smartphone sector, according to industry sources.

The ratio of smartphones available with heatpipe or VC cooling solutions will reach only 5% in 2019, and the ratio is expected to climb to 15-20% in 2020, 35-40% in 2021 and to over 50% in 2022, said the sources.

Digitimes Research has estimated that global smartphone shipments will increase from 1.37 billion units in 2019 to 1.417 billion in 2020, 1.47 billion in 2021 and to 1.523 billion units in 2022.

Having used heatpipe solutions for all of its smartphone lineups for years, Samsung Electronics has also begun to utilize VC-based cooling modules for some of its models since two years ago, pushing forward the applications of copper heat dissipation solutions, noted the sources.

The growing adoption of heatpipe- and VC-based cooling solutions will further consolidate the leading market position of Taiwan-based heat sink module producers, including Chaun Choung Technology (CCI), Auras Technology, Taisol Electronics, Asia Vital Components (AVC) and Delta Electronics, said the sources, adding that Taiwan's makers together currently account for over 90% of the global cooling module market.

Besides, the availability of 5G smartphones will further drive up demand for highly-efficient cooling solutions as 5G models are likely to be required to dissipate 9 watts of heat they generate when in use compared to 5-6 wats of 4G models, indicated the sources.

If high-speed data transmission and multi-task operations are taking into account, the heat dissipation capability of 5G smartphones may need to be upgraded to 10-15 wats, and that will boost the business prospects for cooling module vendors in coming years, added the sources."

Today we are looking at the new from Enermax, the Liqtech TR4 II 360 all in one cooler. Not just one but two of them as TR4 has such special requirements Enermax felt it required its own cooler model with a much larger cold plate to address the much larger IHS on Threadripper. Enermax actually deployed the Liqtech TR4 series before but was met with some negative pushback from power users who found their coolers degrading in performance in anywhere from a mere month to months or a year of service. Various teardowns have shown organic growth which is a big issue for a liquid cooler. To ensure all is well Enermax offered to swap impacted coolers meanwhile respinning the Liqtech cooler lineup for the market to a rev 2 version which is supposed to be better. We will be testing both the TR4 version with its extended cold plate and the Liqtech II 360 for Intel/AMD mainstream socket.

"Scythe's special edition Mugen 5 CPU Cooler is part of the TUF Gaming Alliance and incorporates all the features of the acclaimed series and combines them with the unique TUF Gaming Alliance design along with exclusive RGB illumination. For an even more convenient installation, Scythe has implemented the third revision of its Hyper Precision Mounting System for Mugen 5 TUF Gaming Alliance.
The new Mugen 5 TUF Gaming Alliance CPU Cooler features a carefully designed top-cover, which incorporates the unique patterns as well as logo of the TUF Gaming Alliance series from ASUS™. The large and translucent surface area in the top-plate is fitted with RGB LEDs. This illumination is further enhanced thanks to the new Kaze Flex 120 RGB fan, offering rich colors and versatile effects. Kaze Flex 120 utilizes eight RGB LEDs inside the ring around the fan motor for consistent and bright illumination. Users are able to take full control of the RGB settings by connecting the fan directly to a RGB-enabled motherboard. This way it is possible to synchronize the colors and effects using the Asus™ Aura or other compatible RGB systems.

The Kaze Flex 120 RGB fan inherits all the great features and metrics of the series. Thanks to its well-balanced fan speed range from 300 to 1.200 RPM and the PWM support, users are able to adjust the fan speed according to their needs dynamically, using the PWM controller of their motherboard. Kaze Flex 120 RGB is equipped with a high-quality, self-contained liquid bearing (Sealed Precision FDB), which reduces friction and wear to a minimum and offers an average lifespan of 120.000 hours. Yellow rubber pads are integrated into the corners of the fan-frame, in order to prevent any transfer of vibrations.

Mugen 5 TUF Gaming Alliance supports all major CPU sockets and assures an even easier installation procedure, which has been achieved thanks to the recently developed third revision of Hyper Precision Mounting System (H.P.M.S. III). It is based on a back-plate mounting system with spring-loaded screws for balanced contact pressure. The third revision comes with updated rubber and plastic spacers, which are holding the backplate secured to the motherboard during the installation process. The compatibility list includes the Intel™ sockets LGA775, LGA115x, LGA1366, LGA 2011(v3) and LGA 2066 as well as AMD sockets AM2(+), AM3(+), FM1, FM2(+) and AM4.

Scythe Mugen 5 TUF Gaming Alliance CPU Cooler (Model-No. SCMG-5100TUF) is available for 49,95€ (VAT/Taxes not included)."

"The Japanese cooling expert Scythe announces the availability of the brand new Fuma 2 Twin Tower CPU Cooler. The second generation of the Fuma CPU cooler features a redesigned asymmetric heatsink, two high-quality Kaze Flex 120 mm fans and enormous cooling capacity. Thanks to its overall height of 154,5 mm, the Fuma 2 can be used without hesitation in most PC cases. A completely new feature of the Fuma 2 is the "Dual Fan Reverse Airflow" design, which is used for the first time and in which the fans rotate in opposite directions. This results in a higher static pressure as well as an increased and constant air flow.
Scythe's development team has re-engineered the heatsink design of the second generation Fuma Twin Tower CPU cooler. The design continues to be based on two solid fin packages connected by six powerful 6 mm copper heatpipes. The heatpipes are U-shaped and run through a solid copper base plate. In contrast to the predecessor, the Fuma 2 comes with an asymmetric heatsink design, where the two towers are offset to the side. The fins of the heatsink have also been shortened on one side. These adjustments enable the Fuma 2 to offer unrestricted RAM compatibility even on mainboards with memory banks on both sides of the socket. To protect the CPU cooler from corrosion, all copper heatpipes as well as the base-plate are carefully nickel-plated.

The Fuma 2 CPU cooler comes with two of the high-quality Kaze Flex 120 PWM fans. In addition to a regular model with 25 mm thickness, a new, narrower Kaze Flex 120 Slim PWM with a frame width of 15 mm is used. Both models rely on the Sealed Precision FDB, which reduces friction and wear to a minimum thanks to a special oil film. Rubberized bearing surfaces have a decoupling effect and prevent the transmission of vibrations.

Another unique feature is the "Dual Fan Reverse Airflow" design, in which the Kaze Flex 120 PWM and the Kaze Flex Slim 120 PWM rotate in different directions. This results in a higher static pressure as well as an increased and constant airflow.

Both fans are connected to the mainboard using the supplied Y-adapter, whereby the rotation speed of both fans is regulated accordingly via the PWM signal. The speed range extends from inaudible 300 rpm to the powerful 1.200 rpm. Users are able to mount a third fan for even more cooling capacity. The necessary set of fan-clips is included in the scope of delivery.

The new generation of the Fuma CPU cooler also uses the latest version of the proven backplate-based Hyper Precision Mounting System (H.P.M.S). H.P.M.S. III, which ensures that the Fuma 2 CPU cooler can be mounted safely and quickly on the Intel™ sockets LGA775, LGA1150, LGA1151, LGA1155, LGA1156, LGA1366, LGA2011 (v3) and LGA2066. The popular AMD™ sockets AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, FM1, FM2, FM2+ and AM4 are supported as well.

In addition to mounting material, the scope of delivery also includes a syringe of thermal paste, three fan-clip sets, a matching screwdriver, a Y-PWM adapter and the multilingual installation instructions.

Scythe Fuma 2 (Model No. SCFM-2000) CPU Cooler is available now. The manufacturer's recommended retail price is 46,00 EUR."
