Water cooling is a great way to remove heat from PC components. There are various types of water or liquid cooling solutions available such as the popular All-in-One (AIO or Closed loop) units, DIY liquid cooling kits, as well as fully customizable water cooling loops. As the name implies, a custom loop option is highly configurable and allows users to...

Pre-built all-in-one water coolers for today’s hot running CPU’s are all the rage offering good cooling with none of the hassle of custom loop water cooling. Days gone by about all that was to be had been single radiator 120mm single fan that were little better than mid range air cooling systems. Things have changed with the introduction of the SIlverStone Tundra TD03-E all in one liquid cooler. The SilverStone TD03-E is a single radiator with two PWM fans water cooling solution that will have you raising your eyebrows wondering how it cools so well.

"Cooling capacity is dependent on air flow and the Ultimate has you covered. You have close to 300CFM of air at your command, so expect to notice the fans when you crank up the heat and with a cooler this size, a little fan noise just goes with the territory. Thermaltake has refined a few components to make the installation about as easy as it can be. The low profile Asetek pump looks good and is quiet. Even at a 4.5GHz overclock, the Ultimate still has some thermal room if your chip can handle a higher overclock.”

Today we spend time getting acquainted with Noctua's NH-D9L CPU cooler. It may not set any temperature records, but it has plenty of solid features."

The Noctua NH-U9S is a tall cooler with a small 95x95mm footprint for greater case, RAM and PCIe compatibility, even on micro ATX and ITX motherboards. We put put it to the test to see if its asymmetrical heatsink design featuring 5 heatpipes makes for improved cooling performance that can stand with the cooler's bigger brothers.

After my recent review of the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX I felt that I wasn’t quite done with the review. What good is a case designed for watercooling with all air cooling installed? And aside from that travesty, I felt that in order to properly test Phanteks’ made for watercooling mini-ITX case I should actually do a proper install. With that in mind follow along with this guide as I install a full custom loop in the Enthoo Evolv ITX."

Noctua always made a very good impression- from build quality to installation and even performance. NH-U9S makes the same impression as one would expect. Quality that a lot of users appreciates. I’ve said it before and will say it again. Even though Noctua CPU coolers hold a certain premium- from the CPU brackets and screws, down to the quality of finishing of the heatbase and even detailed TDP/Motherboard compatibility list, they always give the money’s worth. Oh yeah, they’re probably the only ones out there giving 6 years warranty period and premium retail fan(s) and an NT-H1 thermal paste pre-bundled with their units. I know, I am saying this at the cost of sounding like a fanboy, but that’s Noctua for you.

Dual-Tower heatsink designs are very impressive- both when it comes to size and performance. It’s another part of the story that (depending on the CPU Cooler manufacturer, the motherboard manufacturer and memory kit manufacturer) may make it in a way that something may come in the way. I am not a real believer that tall memory heatspreaders have real value when it comes to heat dissipation. Depending on the design, they do look at. And also it helps to cover the chips used in the kits. Alas, we don’t have a proper equipment to evaluate that… yet!!

92mm CPU coolers are making a comeback- and this is probably my second time mentioning it. Coolermaster Hyper D92 arrived few months ago at a very appropriate times. The TDP of modern mainstream processors going lower, with systems getting smaller. In a way, air CPU coolers have to compete with liquid cooling counterparts. They still do have its usefulness. It’s cheaper, the fear of liquid coolers potentially going back is non-existent and many of them look good. I know, I haven’t started testing liquid CPU coolers, and probably I’ll have a different set of lines when I do. That’s because I really need to have a proper test bench as my Lian Li A70F doesn’t have the top mounts for longer radiators. There are some plans made, and I hope to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Hyper D92. The CPU Air cooler that looks neat but looks tall enough to be mistaken for a full tower design from a certain distance. How do these 92mm units perform???

“While beige and brown provide a unique aesthetic that clearly defines the Noctua brand, it hardly fits in most color schemes that builders decide on for their rigs. Just when all hope was lost that we would ever see anything different, Noctua decided to give us two new colors in their arsenal of fans; a grey scheme for the Redux line and a black/brown scheme for their Industrial line. Let’s continue our closer look in this Part II Roundup of Noctua fans.”

The GeForce Titan X is a processing powerhorse, with its GM200 chip carrying six graphics processing clusters, 24 streaming multiprocessors with 3072 CUDA cores. Combined with six 64-bit memory controllers (384-bit) for a total 12GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 7GHz, that's 50% more cores and memory bandwidth than today's single-GPU king, the GeForce GTX 980, released only six months ago. With those numbers we're eager to see what this card is capable of.

Initially conceived of as a convenient and more affordable alternative to building a custom liquid-cooling loop, the first generation self-contained all-in-one CPU cooler units did not succeed in their attempt; performing poorly, costing a lot and if you were one of the unlucky ones, damaged your entire system after it started leaking. It took a while but manufacturers have successfully...

Raijintek is quickly establishing a reputation for being one of the best chassis manufacturers around. Time and time again they’ve shown us that they can make fiercely competitive products, that are packed full of features, with great esthetics and build quality, while maintaining a very affordable price point. Raijintek have set such a good standard for themselves, so I have very high expectations of their latest product, the Aeneas Micro-ATX chassis. The Aeneas is the latest addition to the booming cube-style chassis market. There’s a lot of great chassis’ now available in this form factor, catering to the growing demand of consumers and gamers, for powerful desktop systems. Just like the boom in Mini-ITX chassis after the release of the BitFenix Prodigy, Micro-ATX cube-style chassis’ are now growing in demand as system builders want more space for the latest generations of high-end graphics cards, multi-GPU configurations and of course, room for water cooling, especially with the increasing popularity of custom loop cooling.

A couple of weeks back at GDC, in a bit of a surprise move considering NVIDIA’s CEO Jen Hsun Huang just left the stage at the company’s own GPU Technology Conference (GTC), the GeForce GTX Titan X was unveiled. The unveiling, which took place during one of EPIC’s talks, was somewhat casual and only a couple of details were disclosed. Jen Hsun said that GeForce GTX Titan X cards featured 12GB of memory and a GPU that packed in roughly 8 billion transistors. Besides whatever we could discern from a few quick pictures, no other details were given. Today though, we can give you the full scoop. We’ve have a GeForce GTX Titan X in house for a little while now and have taken it for a spin, alongside some of NVIDIA’s other high-end cards—AMD’s too...

We have been impressed with the wide cross section of GTX970's and GTX980's we have reviewed since Nvidia’s official launch. It was interesting to note on launch day that Nvidia didn’t sample a reference GTX970, instead relying on partners to supply custom cooled overclocked solutions. Nvidia’s distinctive reference cooler has a devoted, loyal user base … who were royally miffed that a GTX970 reference card was not available. Andrew ‘Gibbo’ Gibson in Overclockers UK was keen to resolve the problem and he worked hard to create an ‘improved’ reference design – a worldwide exclusive.
