Thermaltake has a new series of air CPU Coolers, which they are dubbing NiC. NiC stands for “non-interference cooler”. What that means is these coolers will not interfere with RAM installation in your system. For the longest time many CPU coolers would block your RAM slots or you would be limited to low profile modules. With these new air coolers Thermaltake eliminates that problem. The NiC series is comprised of the F3, F4, C4 and C5 coolers.
Long Beach, California based company Swiftech is known industry wide as one of the forefathers of liquid cooling. In 1999 they began developing peltier based cpu coolers for advanced overclocking which led Swiftech to begin working with liquid cooling solutions. Known today for their excellent quality water pumps, radiators, and liquid cooling blocks, Swiftech is easily one of the market leaders in the mainstream liquid cooling market. Until recently however, they have stayed out of the all in one (AIO) cooling solution game. Now, after 3 years of development, they have announced the H220. Aimed at the average user interested in liquid cooling but not yet ready to jump into a full blown custom loop, the H220 claims to be an affordable, adaptable, and silent cooling solution for all users. Follow along as we take the H220 through the gauntlet to see if it really is all it claims to be.
EK Water Blocks has released the EK-KIT L Series value orientated water cooling kits. These kits come as direct successors of EK’s own EK-KIT H30 Supreme LTX kits. There are three different kits, the L120, L240, and L360. The only difference between each kit is the size of the radiator and number of included fans. EK has created the EK-KIT L as a basic kit for users that seek a simple, yet quality and efficient all-in-one solution.
For whatever reason, whether it be the name Arcziel or the general round shape you see looking at this cooler installed, it absolutely makes me think of the Arc Reactor from Iron Man. You know, the fusion based device that keeps Tony alive and powers his techno suit of armor? And so it was with great anticipation of superhero like abilities that I opened and began testing this top down horizontal air cooler from Reveen the Arcziel 12!
Deepcool, the leading manufacturer of desktop CPU cooler, VGA cooler, DC case fan and Notebook cooler, officially released a new member for the well-known CPU cooler GAMMAXX family—GAMMAXX S40. The “S” in the name means to say small size, but this cooler also excels in cooling performance.
If you are a fan of extreme air cooling then I am sure you have heard of the Prolimatech Megahalems. They are by far some of the best air coolers around. The only thing that really sets them back is their price, at $70. To help save you money Prolimatech has released a new Basic line which is currently made up of 4 coolers (B81/B65/B48/B45).
ENERMAX, leading PC case and power supply brand, has introduced their T.B. APOLLISH and T.B. VEGAS QUAD Case Fans. The fans are 18/20 cm, giving a large size for better cooling performance and are compatible with 18cm and 20 cm mounting holes. Both fans are compatible with Enermax’s Fulmo, Fulmo GT, Ostrog GT, Hoplite, and Coenus computer cases.
Here is a word that we are almost inundated with these days. It seems that everyone is so desperate to prove themselves unique they grasp at, and identify with, terms such as this. In the end, it just makes all such products blend together into a group identified with overly emphasised phrases and words. And so it is with utter disdain for this products name that we present to you a 240mm closed loop liquid cooler brought to us by Thermaltake (Tt), the Water 2.0 Extreme. Read on to see if this “Extreme” truly is “of a character or kind farthest removed from the ordinary or average” or just an average cooling product to be avoided.
Noctua has been one of the top picks when it comes to air coolers. Their over-sized air coolers provide great cooling and are actually pretty easy to install as well. A little while ago we took a look at their NH-L12 CPU Cooler, which was a smaller low-profile cooler. I really did not think I would see a smaller cooler than that from Noctua, but they recently released the NH-L9i which is only 37mm high and should be the perfect fit for your small form factor system. Did I mention this cooler will not get in the way of any of your memory and it installs with only 4 screws! Read on as we take a look!
If there is one thing that Apple has proven to the world it’s that creating an image that individuals want to identify with will sell your product. This technique has been repeated time and again in recent years, especially in the tech world. One company to do this and totally create an image that their target market can identify with is NZXT. Established in 2004 and focusing originally on computer enthusiast cases, NZXT have quickly and successfully ground out a segment of the gaming/case modding community to call their own. With a strong following in both the case and power supply market NZXT released the Havik air cooler in June of 2011. It was met with great success and rave review. The Havik was released at a price point aimed at the upper level overclocker, it would seem that since then NZXT has become interested in the lower entry and mid level market. And that brings us to todays test subjects, we will be thoroughly analyzing both the NZXT Respire T20 and T40 air coolers.
