For several years now NZXT has been reaping the benefits of listening to the computer building/modding community and delivering products that they actually want. This in turn has led to one of the most loyal customer bases and served to increase the popularity of their brand. So NZXT has amassed what is essentially an all-star team of products ranging from power supplies to cases to CPU coolers and pretty much everything in between save for the bits that do the number crunching. Fortunately for us they haven’t let up yet. Today we will be checking out their newest offering in the AIO cooler category the Kraken X41. Follow along as we find out if this cooler deserves a starting position, or an eternal ride of shame on the bench.
Cooler Master has just launched two new all-in-one liquid CPU cooler in their Nepton series. These coolers include the Nepton 120XL and Nepton 240M. These new coolers introduce a brand new Silencio FP 120 fan, highlighting high-pressure performance at low noise levels and new radiator block sizes, with a thick 120mm radiator and “typical” 240mm radiator.
GELID Solutions has just unveiled their latest version of their Tranquillo CPU cooler. The Tranquillo Rev. 3 CPU Cooler is part of GELID Solutions SILENT product line and includes a 120 mm fan with intelligent GELID PWM control.
Recently we took a close look at DeepCool’s initial offering in the AIO cooler category, the Maelstrom 120. Released under their new moniker Gamer Storm we found that although it was a decent first attempt, it left us wanting in a few areas. Mostly we were hoping for just a little more performance. Well as it happens DeepCool also offers a Maelstrom 240 AIO. This unit is the big brother to the 120, and is nearly identical aside from having a larger radiator. Could this be the answer to the performance gap the 120 left us with? Read on as we take an in depth look at the DeepCool Maelstrom 240.
Swiftech today has announced the release of the H240X all-in-one CPU liquid cooling kit. This kit follows in the footsteps of the already released H220-X CPU cooler, but features an even larger dual 140 mm copper radiator and 140 mm fans, complete with an enthusiast grade pump and water-block.
LEPA is a company you may not have heard of. They are a division of Ecomaster and are being supported by Enermax so many of their products are similar. Today we will be taking a look at one of their latest CPU Coolers the LV12. The single tower cooler comes in white or black flavors to match your hardware and features four large copper heatpipes, a 120 mm cooling fan, a louver fin design and H.D.T. (Heatpipe Direct Touch) Technology which means the heatpipes will make direct contact with your CPU.
GELID has just unveiled their latest CPU cooler, the SnowStorm. This cooler contains an optimized compact heatsink with 3 power heatpipes and a 92mm fan with PWM function. The cooler is a product of GELID Solutions SILENT product line, so as you can guess it is made to be quiet.
Deepcool entered the AiO cooling market with their Maelstrom series, which has done very well. Now Deepcool is back with a brand new AiO liquid CPU cooler series called Captain, which has a pretty unique design that we haven’t seen before on an AiO cooler.
Raijintek who we mainly know for cases and air CPU coolers have just entered the AiO watercooling market with their Triton AiO CPU Cooler. Raijintek says the Triton comes after several years of development and that they have completed the concept of the best performing all-in-one CPU cooler for enthusiasts.
If there is any line of products that I would say we here at ThinkComputers.org are most familiar with it would have to be Thermaltake AIO coolers. Over the past couple years we have reviewed nearly their entire line of products. Overall we have found them to be adequate to top level performers. And while their arsenal of self contained water coolers is formidable they have seemed to lack a stand out champion. You know a hands down performance winner across the board. And so I was certainly intrigued when we got our hands on Tt’s newest AIO entry, the Water 3.0 Ultimate. This triple 120 rad AIO is one of the first on the market and the largest AIO we have reviewed at TC. So does size matter? Follow along and find out if this can finally be Thermaltake’s all out performance champ.
