Fan controllers come in all shapes in sizes, but it’s not every day you see one that looks like a DJ’s mixer. Today we’ll be looking at the NZXT Sentry Mix Fan Controller, which supports up to six fans. The fans can be controlled very easily with each having its own slider. Each slider is individually marked and can be easily spotted in one of five LED colors.
When we posted our overview of the NZXT Switch 810 many people had asked us what fan controller was being used on the case and it was NZXT’s own Sentry Mix fan controller. This controller fits in an open 5.25-inch drive bay and features six 50w channels and five LED colors for you to choose from. It also has a nice rubberized finish, unlike many fan controllers.

When it comes to CPU coolers there are some companies we know and trust and Zalman is one of them. We have been reviewing Zalman CPU coolers for quite sometime now and they always seem to impress us. Their radical designs, quality materials, ease of use and great performance make them one of the premier brands when it comes to CPU cooling. At CES this year we got a glimpse of Zalman’s largest CPU cooler to date the CNPS12X. This massive CPU cooler features three 120mm fans, a dual heatsink design and 6 copper heatpipes. Today we have the CNPS12X installed and ready to test, read on to see the results!
Today we are going to be unboxing one of largest Zalman CPU coolers we have seen and definitely the biggest CPU cooler of 2012! The CNPS12X is not only large it packs three 120mm fans, a direct-touch heatpipe design with 6 copper heatpipes and 2 large aluminum heatsink stacks. This CPU cooler is compatible with all current CPU’s including Intel’s new 2011 socket. All 3 fans run at a maximum of 1200RPM, so even though you have the 3 fans they will be pretty quiet.

A little while ago we reviewed the Antec Kuhler H2O 620 Liquid CPU Cooler. Well now Antec is back with the Kuhler H20 920, which they say performs even better! Just like the 620 the 920 is an all-in-one cooling system that is simple to install and get setup. Read on as we unbox the Kuhler H20 920 and see what all it comes with!
Today we’ll be looking at a new Cooler Master CPU cooler, the Hyper 612 PWM. This cooler, which is yet to be available for purchase, offers a large heatsink, 6 copper heatpipes and a 120mm PWM fan for both silence and cooling. While its support for an additional fan may give you extra cooling, the cooler might not fit in all cases. Read on further to find out if this large cooler will work for you.
Tower coolers are becoming more and more popular due to their high powered cooling abilities, while horizontal coolers are becoming less prevalent. The reason being is they just don’t work as good as towered coolers. What if I told you there was a horizontal, low profile cooler that will not only fit over your RAM with high heat spreaders, but also provide decent cooling power. The Cooler Master Gemin II S524 is a CPU cooler that has all of that and more. Read on further to see what all it has in store.
I know many people that use their laptop as their main work machine. Laptops are not really made for comfort and if you are using yours constantly you probably bend your neck down to see the screen correctly. This can cause a lot of discomfort, which does not make for the most comfortable working experience. Another thing about laptops is many of them really have inadequate cooling. Cooler Master has released another product in their ever-popular Notepal line of laptop coolers that solves both of these problems. The product is the Notepal U Stand and we have the review.
Today we get the opportunity to see a remake of a classic and well known CPU cooler. The Thermaltake Frio, which we reviewed over a year ago, now has a successor, the Frio OCK. With a revamped dual fan design and sleeker looks, it’s sure to be a hit. The Frio OCK comes equipped with dual 130mm fans, six 6mm copper heatpipes, and a Starcraft II design. Read on further to see what else is this successor has going for it.
Today we get the opportunity to check out a new idea on CPU coolers, at least to us here at Think Computers. We’ll be checking out the Freezer 13 Pro from Arctic Cooling, which not only has 120mm fan for cooling, but also a small 50mm fan that is attached to the base which helps cool the base and provide better airflow underneath the heatsink. Read on further to check out this new idea and find out how well it performs.
