When building an epic new rig we focus on the exciting main items like the motherboard, processor, ram, and of course the GPU! Often times that could leave you missing some important items when you actually start to put the build together. I feel one of the most overlooked items is the fan controller. Often times there is a solution included with the case, but if your build is deserving of the adjective “epic” then you will need more than the included controller or hub. Hoping to be there for you when you need plenty of power and specific control, NZXT is bringing to the market the third iteration of it’s very popular fan hub, the GRID+ V2. Follow along as we find out if this hub has what you need to keep your case nice and chill.

Intel’s latest Core i7-6700K and Core i5-6600K processors do not come bundled with a cooler. This is very typical as they are enthusiasts parts and most enthusiast will opt to use a third-party cooling solution for better performance. Not that long ago Akiba PC Hotline published details and photos of Intel’s stock cooler designed for the LGA1151 socket. The Intel Thermal Solution TS15A is quite large and more than twice the size of the LGA1150 retail cooler.
When it comes to the “Big Boy’s” of air cooling cooling there are a few names that come to mind, but one that always comes up in discussions is Noctua. There are known for their massive air coolers and their distinctive brown fans. It seems every time we review a Noctua product we are impressed and each product is designed for a specific scenario. This time we have the new NH-D15S, which is much like the NH-D15 that we reviewed about a year ago. The main difference between the two is the NH-D15S has a new offset asymmetrical design that makes more room for memory and PCI-Express card compatibility. Noctua has also removed one of the two fans so you have a center-mounted 140mm cooling fan. The fact that you don’t have a fan on the front or back also helps with compatibility with memory modules. Will these changes affect performance or do we have another winner from Noctua? Read on as we take a look!
