Wed. May 22, 2019Topic: Cooling / Heatsinks    PermaLink

Lots of people are starting to step away from Air coolers these days, myself included. With numerous All in One liquid coolers on the market, it’s hard to stay away from the performance they have to provide and let’s not forget the RGB. But Air cooling is still widely used among enthusiasts. Legends such as the Cooler Master Hyper 212 …

be quiet! shakes up the mid-range air cooling market with their Dark Rock Slim. It not only offers solid performance and ultra-low noise levels, but also does so while looking sleek and professional due to the all-black design and lack of RGB LEDs, which will likely please many who are tired of gamer-centric offerings.

Noctua makes some of the best performing air coolers we’ve ever seen! Today we are checking out one of their latest premium offerings, the NH-U12A. The NH-U12A is a single tower cooler that features a completely redesigned heatsink with 7 heatpipes and an increased fin surface area for superior heat dissipation. The heatsink is flanked on each side by Noctua’s flagship NF-A12x25 120 mm PWM fans. Noctua tells us that this cooler can rival the performance of many 140 mm size coolers while still offering better compatibility. Is this the new air cooler you need to be looking at? Read our review to find out!"

be quiet! has always been well known for its high-performance air coolers, specifically within the Dark Rock range. It is from this lineup we have become familiar with huge, dual-fan coolers like the Dark Rock Pro – designed with both high performance and low noise output in mind. The new be quiet! Dark Rock Slim, on the other hand, offers a lot of the more premium features of the Dark Rock Pro, but in a much smaller package – and with a price tag of £49.99, a somewhat more accessible price point. Can it still offer the same experience we have come to expect from the Dark Rock family?

Western Digital reintroduced their WD Black M.2 NVMe SSD back in January with the new SN750 model. I took a look at it and was impressed once again by its performance and pricing and it won an Editor’s Choice award. At the same time as that launch, they teased their 2TB model and a new SN750 that would have a heatsink those weren’t available yet.

Well, the SN750 with the heatsink is available now and I’ve had one here on my desk and on the test bench. Today I’m going to check it out and see how it is different from the standard SN750. They share the same base SSD, so my goal today is to take a look at if the heatsink really helps and if so how much. We already know the SN750 is fast, but is buying it with heatsink worth it. Let's find out!

We review another be quiet! Dark Rock series cooler, this round the Dark Rock SLIM. With totally black looks the cooler comes with a single radiator, one fan and takes and all that offering cooling performance up-to 180 Watts of cooling power, enough for any modern processor and some tweaking of course as well.

The FSP CMT340 is not just a smaller version of the CMT510. While it offers the same essential configuration with four RGB fans, storage options, and build quality, the CMT340 scores with better liquid-cooling capabilities, slightly better cable routing, and excellent balance in regards to cooling, GPU, and power supply capabilities.

In the decade since the Corsair H50 was first launched, Corsair has released a plethora of AIO water coolers, with the H100i being among the latest and greatest. The only thing missing from the original H100i in the eyes of some enthusiasts, however, was some color, RGB to be specific. It's 2019, and like it or not RGB is everywhere, so to appease enthusiasts craving a bit of additional RGB action, Corsair has released an RGB version of its popular H100i cooler, the Corsair H100i RGB Platinum, that glows for days and offers strong performance to boot...

Noctua delivers top-tier air cooling performance in a compact design with the release of the NH-U12A. Sporting two of their latest NF-A12x25 PWM fans, what this cooler lacks in regards to RGB LEDs, it makes up for with brown and tan Noctua styling and a premium build quality that is second to none.

Bigger, cooler, more colorful! Today we are testing the Asus ROG Ryujin 360 AIO water cooling system from the absolute premium segment with VRM cooling, addressable RGB lighting and OLED display, which is also completely equipped with Noctua Premium fans. In the following Asus Ryujin review, we not only measure the cooling performance with different processors, but also demonstrate again the fan and pump volume as well as the lighting effects in three new videos.

"One thing that is known is that the syringe looks amazing to spread thermal paste over the entire IHS with the broad nozzle. While the pea-drop method is tried and tested, perhaps we will now see better performance with this new applicator? Some people do spread the thermal paste all over the IHS before mounting the cooler, but it is definitely a hassle with current thermal pastes."

Noctua support AMD processors with new coolers such as the NH-U12S and the larger NH-U14S has also received the Threadripper treatment – hinted at by a ‘TR4-SP3’ at the end of the name. This means changing out the contact surface of the cooler, to primarily ensure it is large enough for the much bigger Threadripper IHS, and secondly ensuring the cooler can handle the higher TDP from such a CPU. In our testing, the NH-U12S TR4-SP3 performed pretty well which would suggest we can expect even better results from the larger NH-U14S.

It really is an interesting one when it comes to price vs performance though as the NH-U14S TR4-SP3 is priced at £74.99, only £1.00 more expensive than the 120mm model. With such a small price difference, is there really any reason not to choose the Noctua NH-U14S TR4-SP3?
