I’ve said it before and I guess I’m saying it again; I have reviewed a lot of AiO coolers. As the resident AiO guy at ThinkComputers if there’s a new closed loop product on the market it finds it’s way to me. As you might imagine I have seen everything from coolers that are basically bone stock, slap the company logo onto it and call it good, to very unique, well thought out and inventively engineered designs. It’s the later that keeps me going, because every once in a while a sample will come along that you can tell some love and creativity was poured into the design. Today we’ll be taking a look at the Silverstone TD02-E. While Silverstone is far from being a one-off boutique brand, their products in general carry a certain feeling of quality and pride in the design. Follow along as we find out if the TD02-E has the genes of its counterparts or if it’s simply a generic design with a logo slapped on as an after thought.
We previously tested the DeepCool Captain 240 liquid CPU Cooler and weren’t very impressed with the results. As it turns out neither was DeepCool when they saw our results so they decided to send us a second test unit after all. Fortunately this one arrived from Hong Kong with the thermal paste intact so we got to work immediately retesting.
Deepcool’s original Assassin CPU cooler came out in 2013 and one one of the largest and best performing coolers available. 2014 brought in the Lucifer, which we tested and it proved to be one of the best coolers available at the time. It is now 2015 and Deepcool has released the successor to the original Assassin, the Assassin II. This massive air cooler features a dual tower design, two cooling fans (140mm and 120mm), 8 nickel-plated copper heatpipes and its own 4-port fan hub. Can this cooler reign supreme like Deepcool’s previous two coolers? Read on as we find out…

EXllusion 240 also features coolant refillable design, and included red, blue, green dyes allow users to customize the preferred coolant color.
Aqua Computer has just unveiled their full-coverage water block for AMD’s Radeon R9 Fury X graphics card. The card should also be compatible with the Radeon R9 Fury Tri-X, which uses the AMD reference PCB.
If there is one thing to be said about Beijing based hardware manufacturer DeepCool, it would be their tenacity for pushing the limits of their own design while creating new and inspiring pieces of tech. While company has been around and creating cooling solutions since 1996, it hasn’t been until recently that they have thrust themselves onto the global enthusiast stage. Since we have been reviewing their products we have moved from simple air coolers to the very steampunk inspired AiO that we are taking a look at today. The Captain 240 is the middle of their Captain line of AiO coolers and really sets itself apart with it’s aesthetics. Read on as we find out if the design is just a veneer or if this cooler really has what it takes to be one of the best.
Earlier today we showed you EKWB’s upcoming Radeon R9 Fury X water block and now we have a good look at XSPC’s! XSPC’s Radeon R9 Fury X Water Block is in the works and for those wondering it is a full cover water block! Unlike EKWB’s version this one will require two slots.
Scythe might not be one of the big names you hear of when it comes to air CPU coolers. Their coolers typically do not have over-the-top designs or are all that flashy, but when it comes to performance they have always been solid, and of course that is what is most important when it comes […]
Reveen was showing off three low-profile CPU coolers at Computex that are perfect for that small form factor system. The first cooler is the Steropes (RC-1206), which is only 60 mm tall including the fan. The cooler features a 120 x 120 mm size aluminum fin stack with heatpipes and is ventilated by a 12 mm thick 120 mm fan. The cooler is just tall enough to not get in the way of components on a mini-ITX motherboard.
