Reeven has launched the RC-1401 large tower type CPU cooler. The design includes the usual aluminum fin stack. The heat is transferred to it by a combination of two 8mm thick and a three 6mm thick copper heat pipes. The 8mm thick ones extend to the stack’s border, while the 6mm thick pipes are restricted to the central regions. The top most fin is covered. These heat pipes emit from a nickel-plated copper base indirectly, which comes in a mirror finish.
Last year Noctua released their NH-L9 series low profile CPU coolers. They were extremely small (37mm) and offered some pretty good cooling as well. Noctua is back with a new low profile cooler that they were showing at Computex. This cooler is just a little bit bigger at 65mm high, but still will fit in compact systems pretty easily.
When you like about all-in-one water coolers I bet Enermax is not a name you think of, but they want to change that. Their first run of liquid CPU coolers were not all that great so they have gone back to the drawing board and have come up with some new designs that they were showing off at Computex. The big change in the cooler is the new SCT (Shunt Channel Technology) which they have used in the newly redesigned blocks.
So you’re putting together your all out custom build. You’ve got the best processor, motherboard, memory, GPU, and case you can buy. Now is the time you’re going to have to start thinking about fans and cooling. Whether it be air or water, you will need fans. This is often forgotten till the end, and this item is crucial to bringing all those bits together and helping them to perform to their fullest. While there are many options when it comes to choosing fans, it is very important to be selective in order to get the right fan for your configuration as well as a good quality fan. Today we are going to be taking a look at a broad selection of 9 fans from one of the most lauded fan manufacturers, Noctua.
Xigmatek carries on to initiate once again this time taking on Janus to be the name which hopefully would be heard for many years to come in the CPU cooling industry. Yes you got that right. Xigmatek has just introduced their low profile CPU cooler. This amazing machine is considered to be the world’s thinnest low profile coolers, varying at an incredible height of 60mm which can actually fit anywhere.
We all know of the custom cooling solutions offered by many graphics card manufactures out there. I’m sure you might have heard of DirectCU, TwinFrozr, JetStream and WindForce. EVGA is finally trying to compete with these other coolers with their new ACX (Active Cooler Xtreme) Cooler that will debut on NVIDIA’s 700 Series.
In the computer world, every once in awhile a company that is thought of as bargain basement starts to come out with great products. In this case we’re talking about XSPC. Usually considered at best to be entry level, not many would give XSPC a second look for pure performance. That is until they released their first Raystorm blocks. Now not only are they affordable, but they actually stack up against the big name water cooling manufacturers. And that leads us to today’s review, the XSPC RayStorm 750 RS240 Watercooling kit. This kit has everything you need to build your own custom watercooling loop. Let’s take a look…
I have to admit something; I hate top down air coolers. I can’t put my finger on what it is about them I so dislike. Perhaps it’s simply that they don’t tend to perform very well. Or maybe it’s just their strong dissymmetry that rubs me the wrong way. Whatever it is, something inside tells me to take a tower cooler over them any day. And so it is with great fear and trepidation that I present another air cooling product from German manufacturers, be quiet!, the Shadow Rock TopFlow SR1. Please follow along as I attempt to prove my instincts wrong., or right, as we find out how this cooler performs.
In every industry there is always at least one company that seems to always be on top. No matter what product they are releasing they always sell well and everyone seems to love them. Without a doubt one of these companies is Corsair. As an owner of one of the original Corsair AIO’s, the H70, I am very interested to see how far they’ve come over the years. Today we will be taking a look at one of their most recent AIO units, the H80i. At the mid-top end of Corsairs line and with so many AIO cooling units on the market, lets take this cooler for a test drive and find out where it falls when the heat is turned up.
NZXT has been using internal fan hubs in their cases for a while now. These fan hubs provide a central location to connect all of your fans, which makes things much easier. NZXT has just announced the Grid Internal Fan hub that allows anyone no matter what case they have to easily connect their fans to one central location. The fan hub supports up to 10 fans and is designed to fit in any case.
