The old saying of not judging a book by its cover is true for the CRYORIG C7, as it is more capable than it reads.

Gelid Solutions has released it's Tranquillo rev.4 Heatsink. This is a 154mm tall tower cooler featuring an exposed heatpipe base.

"Like the original design the Rev. 4 Tranquillo uses 4 power heat pipes and a unique heat pipe constellation but also comes with a number of new technologies implemented to achieve higher cooling performance. The Rev. 4 Tranquillo features the Heatpipe Direct Touch Technology, a direct thermal connection between CPU core and heat pipes. The new heatsink is also improved with the Unique Heatsink Shape Technology, the result of precise software simulations and calculations which makes the air flow resistance of the new heatsink much lower. The Stacked Soldered Heatpipe and Fin Technology provides the best quality of soldered joints between heatpipe to fins and ensures the most efficient heat transfer inside the new heatsink. An improved 120mm fan with the intelligent GELID PWM (Pulse Width Module) control compliments the heatsink. The new Double Layer Blade technology is applied to distribute air flow efficiently at low speed. The redesigned PWM IC eliminates any clicking noise. The intelligent GELID PWM curve operates the fan in speed range from 750 RPM to 1600 RPM, it constantly keeps the fan silent but accelerates speed whenever additional cooling is needed. With the 2 sets of fan mounts, a second fan can be installed to improve the cooler performance even further. "

"Smoothly spreading the thermal paste takes time and effort to get exact, however, so the fact that our testing shows a simple X shape performing even better is absolutely great news. Not only is it a much simplier application technique, it is also much easier to keep consistent. And for those that are wondering, it works just as well on larger CPUs like the Intel socket 2011 CPUs. The thickness of the line just needs to be very slightly increased, and the X shape should be extended to cover the entire face of the CPU."

Liquid Series from PC Specialist is a new range of PCs that employ a custom loop liquid cooling system to deliver maximum performance along with stunning visual appeal. The LS-M02 we have for review is an example of the way Liquid Series works and uses a mainstream gaming specification with a price that comes in just under £2,000. If you decide to configure your own PC you have the choice of Z170/Skylake or X99/Haswell-E hardware (Intel only, no AMD) and can select from a choice of 16 cases, four different cooling systems, as many as three graphics cards and a huge number of other options. The permutations are almost limitless so it makes a good deal of sense to select a pre-configured PC such as LS-M02.

Today we have the Nanoxia CoolForce 2 chassis for review. We have already seen the Deep Silence 1 Rev.B chassis from Nanoxia and we recommended it, it’s a very high quality chassis. The CoolForce 2 is aimed at a similar audience, with a number of the Nanoxia design cue’s and features, it’s another enthusiast level chassis with the watercooler fan in mind.

Cooler Master has just announced their new MasterLiquid series of CPU coolers, built using a special “FlowOp” technology that analyzes how heat is absorbed and dissipated to construct a better cooling solution than the competition. The end result was a dual chamber design that did both improve the cooling performance, but also dramatically extended the product’s functional lifetime. In this preview article, Benchmark Reviews covers some of the finer points that separate the MasterLiquid cooler series from everything else on the market.

"The industrialPPC 140mm fans are very well built and can be used for both industrial and PC chassis applications; the 24V versions are ideal as case fans because they produce little to no noise at half the voltage they receive inside a computer chassis, but if you are also planning on replacing the fans on the water cooling radiators, you have to get the 12V models. The 12V industrialPPC 140mm PWM fans will be ran at higher speeds in order to cool the radiator fins properly, while keeping the noise levels as low as possible thanks to the integrated technologies."

"With the Le Grand Macho RT we offer an actively cooled version of our famous semi-passive flagship. Thanks to the silent-running TY 147 B with fluid dynamic bearing, the Le Grand Macho RT can cool up to 280 watt.

The design of the heat sink has not been changed and is still asymmetrical. This offers the highest possible compatibility to the most recent motherboards. Thus it is guaranteed that the Le Grand Macho RT neither blocks the RAM spaces, nor the top-most PCIe slot on current ATX-boards.

Visually, the Le Grand Macho RT is top of the line. The heatsink shines in silver nickel plating and features a black anodized top fin, combined with the black and white fan.

Also available in stores now are the TY 127 – for users who want to install a second fan on their cooler – as well as the TY 141SV, a slightly upgraded version of the TY 141. Both fans make use of side vents, just like the TY 147 B, in order to reduce the noise of the fan even further. At 14 – 21 dB(A) the TY 141 SV is even more silent than its predecessor.

For fans of retro coolers the original HR-02 is now available again. The cooler, which has been introduced in 2010 for the first time, was the inspiration for our Macho cooler and is still one of the most powerful coolers of its kind. The cooler comes with the VX-II bolt-through kit included, which can be used to mount the HR-02 on all current Intel- and AMD-CPUs. Our screwdriver and the Chill Factor III thermal compound are included as well.

All coolers are now available in stores. The MSRP of the Le Grand Macho RT is 69.99€, that of the TY 127 is 8.99€ and finally the MSRP for the TY 141SV is set at 15.99€. The HR-02 is available for 54.99€"

Tue. May 10, 2016Topic: Cooling / Heatsinks    PermaLink has just posted another review. Last week we have taken a look at the Watercool Heatkiller IV R9 Fury-X. This water water block is compatible with any AMD Radeon R9 Fury X and AMD Radeon Fury in reference design. Only high-quality materials such as high purity electrolytic copper or the original PLEXIGLAS GS of EVONIK is used in HEATKILLER IV VGA series

The Silverstone Argon series of heatsinks comprise of value-minded CPU air cooling solutions available in tower-style or heatpiped low-profile models. Of the three that use a low-profle design, the Argon AR06 is the more capable cooler equipped with four heatpipes compared to the dual-heatpiped AR05 and AR04. With a 92mm fan designed for quiet operation, the Argon AR06 fits well …

Figuring out which component is compatible with which electronically is hard enough as it is for casual system builders that the last thing one needs is to find out that their heatsink does not fit with their case or RAM module heatspreader physically after all parts have been purchased. That is why clearance compatibility information is essential in a cooler …

We review the P360 Performance custom loop Liquid Cooling from EK, consisting out of all components needed to assemble and design your own liquid cooling loop. In this review we will build a performance class PC and test this kit on a Core i7 6700K processor. The end result is a setup that is surpassing any AIO kit in both performance and low noise levels. Even overclocked the results are terrific!
