Just when we were starting to think that the Sugo series lost its Mini-ITX mojo, after the last couple of models moved to MicroATX, Silverstone has stepped forward with the itty bitty 11.5L SG13. The thirteenth Sugo isn't quite the smallest to date, but it may be the most capable. Its 11.5L body is said to be capable of housing a standard ATX power supply up to 150mm long, a 120/140mm radiator and a 10.5" dual-slot graphics card.

The 240M is a smaller version of the 280L. How well will it compare it performance?

"Corsair has been selling all in one liquid coolers since these coolers first started hitting the market. In fact without them it’s possible this category would never have gotten off the ground. With such a broad line of AIO coolers keeping them busy, it’s been some time now since Corsair has made an addition to their 280mm category. Today we’re going to be taking a close look at the H110i GT. This dual 140mm unit boasts some fresh aesthetic designs as well as some really cool new technology. Follow along as we find out if this GT reboot is really a luxurious high performance cooler worthy of the GT moniker or just another AIO with a fancy looking name."

Placed in confined spaces, a compact cooler has to rise to the occasion. Although hopefully not too much as height restrictions also apply. This is why the C-type heatpipe design is popularly used for CPU coolers destined for small-form factor enclosures. This type of cooler has its own set of design issues it must overcome to be a viable solution, …

"An agreement between Kelvin Thermal Technologies and the University of Colorado was struck in order to develop a flexible and thin thermal management technologies. This research was also funded by the US Department of Defense under DARPA. This new device is an ultra-thin, flexible, thermal ground plane. The thermal ground plane is a flat heat-transfer device that can be mounted on electronic devices to replace aluminum, copper and graphite heatsinks. The device maintains comfortable temperature levels without the use of fans or other temperature control items."

Recently, Cooler Master used Nutella to as thermal compound to cool a CPU. I wouldn't try this at home, but the video is fun to watch! :-)

"Surprisingly, the Nutella kept Cooler Master's test processor running at a minimum temperature of 21ºC and a maximum of 50ºC for a while. However, like we say it's not worth trying this at home as the Nutella will eventually dry out and harm your CPU."

We’ve taken a look at a few Noctua CPU Coolers here at pcG in recent months, from the small but surprisingly adept Noctua NH-U9S with its single heatsink and tiny 92mm Noctua NF-A9 PWM fan, to the big a beastly Noctua NH-D15 with its massive twin towers and dual 140mm fans. But what would happen if Noctua crossbred them both? Why the Noctua NH-D9L of course! A CPU Cooler offering a similar tiny footprint to that of the NH-U9S, but with the dual tower features of its bigger brother the NH-D15. In fact it looks exactly like the NH-D15 when viewed from an appropriate distance, the only tell tale sign that it isn’t, is its single fan.

Today, we get a chance to review an Arctic branded cooler, the Accelero S3 Passive. As the name states, this cooler does not come with any fans, so it would be dead silent. Arctic overcomes forced air movement cooling by using a large heatsink surface and heatpipes to get heat away from the core. Clearly, something like this isn’t made for high end GPUs, but something in the mid-range area it is said to handle without a worry. I strapped the unit on the recently reviewed MSI GTX 960 Gaming, a solid mid-range performer, to see how it does. Read on for more details!

With the likes of the Silver Arrow SB-E, HR22, AXP 20,0 and Macho series of coolers, Thermalright has something for everyone when it comes to keeping their CPU cool. From heavyweight behemoths to low-profile, ITX friendly designs, customers have no shortage of selection. Such an exceptional range of products and a willingness to improve on already solid designs has helped keep Thermalright in the minds of do-it-yourself PC enthusiasts the world over. With that said, in today's review, I look at Thermalright's Silver Arrow ITX. Based on the already popular Silver Arrow, the ITX version utilizes a few less heatpipes and features a single fan along with a slight redesign of the two cooling towers.

"Performance was on par with similar sized (and price) coolers. The SE-204K is a nice jump beyond OEM cooling, but still a sizable notch below the larger dual tower coolers with 140mm fans, and that is no surprise. For daily use in a mild gaming rig, this cooler will be right at home. If you really overclock and frequently load your system, you may want to look at a larger capacity cooler.”

CPU Coolers come in various shapes and sizes but these variants are not all done purely for performance reasons. For instance, since memory manufacturers continue to use unnecessarily tall heat spreaders on their modules, CPU cooler makers have begun designing heatsinks to maximize compatibility. Phanteks, specifically with their latest PH-TC14S CPU cooler, incorporates two main design ideas to ensure it …

"Performance was on par with similar size coolers. The Pure Rock is a nice jump beyond OEM cooling, but still a sizeable notch below the much larger (and signifcantly more expensive) dual tower coolers with 140mm fans. However, it did prove that it can stand up to a fair amount of heat when the load is cranked up. For daily use in a mild gaming or multimedia rig, this cooler will be right at home. If you really overclock and frequently load your system, be quiet! certainly has a variety of larger, higher capacity coolers from which to choose.”

The LV12 is the result of extensive research and development. The engineers designed a slim and compact heat sink which avoids compatibility issues with higher RAM modules while maintaining a high performance capability. More about the performance and handling you can find in our review.

Over the years, Phanteks has created quite a name for itself among PC enthusiasts for creating some of the best air coolers and fans available. Last month at CES we got to check out their suite and get an early peak at some of their latest products. Today, we’re bringing you a review of one of the products we saw, the Phanteks PH-TC14S; a compact dual-tower cooler which promises to deliver nearly all of the performance of it’s bigger brother the PH-TC14PE, in a much smaller package and price.

We test and review two new coolers from Noctua, the NH-D9L and NH-U9S CPU coolers. These small puppies can be used with any motherboard and CPU combo but focus on Micro ATX and Mini ITX. They are small, deadly silent but do pack enough punch to even cool a Core i7 4790K. And yes, you can even overclock a bit as well. Yup, that would be Noctua for ya.

Corsair is bringing out three new All In One liquid cooling systems. H80i GT (120mm radiator and two fans in push/pull) and H100i GTX (240mm radiator with two fans) occupy slots towards the upper reaches of the product range, and right at the pinnacle we have the new H110i GT. Employing a 280mm radiator and dual 140mm fans, the H110i GT marries the size of the H110 with features we have previously seen in H100i Extreme.
