The A40 by CRYORIG is the company's entry level offering in their all-in-one hybrid liquid CPU cooler lineup. It lacks the size of the A80 and the radiator thickness of the A40 Ultimate. However, unlike the others, it offers a more affordable price point with all the same features.

We previously looked at the be quiet! Silent Loop 240 at launch last year, but now there is a new kid on the block – the Silent Loop 360. It will be particularly interesting to assess the new 360mm unit as we have just finished testing the Alphacool Eisbaer 360 – and Alphacool also manufactures the Silent Loop series, so any similarities will be closely examined.

We test and review the be quiet! Silent Loop 360, an All-in-One Liquid cooling kit that is decent in performance with a 360mm rad and three Pure Wings 2 fans. These liquid cooling kits are pre-fitted with a single loop and ready to install straight out of the box. Armed with pretty nice looks and an attractive price, be quiet! offers a competitive model in the massive LCS kit arena.

Are you ready to take your systems lighting customisation to the next level? I know I am! While there’s a lot of RGB hardware on the market right now, innovations are seemingly few and far between.

Just a couple of short weeks ago we looked at the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 16GB graphics card in its air-cooled variety. The results were interesting – gaming performance proved to fall somewhere between the GTX 1070 and the GTX 1080 from NVIDIA’s current generation of GeForce products. That is under many of the estimates from players in the market, including media, fans, and enthusiasts. But before we get to the RX Vega product family that is targeted at gamers, AMD has another data point for us to look at with a water-cooled version of Vega Frontier Edition. At a $1500 MSRP, which we shelled out ourselves, we are very interested to see how it changes the face of performance for the Vega GPU and architecture.

"Priced at $999, the Threadripper 1950X has the full 16 cores and 32 threads of compute, running at a base clock of 3.4 GHz but still is targeting the boost clock rate of 4.0 GHz! For reference, this is the same clock Boost clock speed as the Ryzen 7 1800X. At $999, the 1950X is the direct target at the 7900X, but will offer considerably more multi-threaded performance. It resulted in a Cinebench R15 score of 3062, 41% faster than the Core i9-7900X!"

The pump is designed with a simple C character with an improved light diffuser which can provide smooth and even lighting effect. Pump header has white LED lighting.

Copper base contacts CPU to help the heat transfer. Micro fin submerged design increases the heat dissipation surface. The dimension of the whole water block is ?65×43mm. Solid connectors are used on both ends of the premium sleeved tubing, more reliable & performance efficient. Inside the tubing is self-contained highly efficient and eco-friendly liquid coolant.

FROSTFLOW+ Series have 3 different radiator sizes: 280mm, 240mm and 120mm. All radiators have ac classic black and white theme on all fans with frame in black and blades in white.

"The totally massive MSI Core Frozr XL benefits from a large nickel-plated copper thermal plate to quickly pull the heat away from the CPU. The heat then transfers from the thermal baseplate into the eight 6mm SuperPipes, which move the heat upward to the large aluminum dissipation fin array that can dissipate up to 250W of heat. Lastly, the two MSI 120mm Torx fans push-pull the heat away from all of that thermal mass and out of the computer case."

Digitimes reports: "Taiwan-based cooling module maker Auras is expected to enjoy a strong second half thanks to new orders for server-related products, increasing demand for graphics card cooling modules and heat-pipe orders from Samsung Electronics for its Galaxy Note 8 smartphone, according to a Chinese-language Central News Agency. Auras is expected to supply 70-80% of the overall heat-pipe orders for the Galaxy Note 8, and some market watchers expect more smartphone brand vendors to begin adopting heat-pipes or heat sinks for their devices in 2018 when 5G network start commercial operations, the paper noted.

Auras also saw increased graphics card cooling module shipments because of the recent cryptocurrency mining trend, which strongly boosted demand for graphics cards. Intel's next-generation Purley platform, which is set to be released in the fourth quarter, is also expected to boost Auras' server-related product shipments.

Auras has also been aggressively pushing liquid cooling solutions and has landed orders from several first-tier artificial intelligence (AI) datacenters. These orders are expected to start contributing revenues in the fourth quarter."

"Just the other day we published our review of Intel’s Core i9-7900X Skylake-X processor. It was our first review of a processor in Intel’s new Core X Series, and now today we have the Core i7-7740X Kaby Lake-X processor. This processor is based on a different micro-architecture than the other processors that sit above it in Intel’s X Series product stack. With the i7-7740X you have Kaby Lake cores and it is the first time we’ve seen Intel launch two generations of processors at the same time (Kaby Lake-X / Skylake-X). The i7-7740X is a quad-core processor with a base clock speed of 4.3 GHz, boosts up to 4.5 GHz, 8 MB of cache, 16 PCI-Express lanes, and a 112W TDP. Intel is pricing this processor at only $339, not a bad price to get into Intel’s HEDT platform. If you are building a new system should you be looking at the Core i7-7740X? Read on as we find out!"

"The Captain 240 EX RGB Liquid Cooler is built on the base of the already successful iteration and now brings RGB LED lighting for everyone to enjoy. Deepcool has prepared the product with extra accessories, so even older systems with motherboards that do not feature RGB headers can benefit from the RGB light show: to be more exact, we are discussing about an in-line remote with three buttons that gets power from a spare SATA PSU port."
