So what, and why the history lesson you ask? You’re here to read about computers and hardware of course. Well interestingly enough hardware powerhouse NZXT has reinvented their simple but popular Grid fan hub. Intriguingly this new version of the hub is has been titled the Grid+. Being such a simple object we are thoroughly curious what NZXT has done to “add” to the original Grid. Indeed is the new Grid+ worthy of this new moniker?
Spire has just announced their 4th generation of its Swirl CPU coolers. As the name suggests the Swirl IV features a unique fin-stack design in which swirl-shaped fins are arranged perpendicular to the plane of the motherboard. A lateral-flow fan then pushes air drawn from the central cutout in all directions through the fin-stacks that surround it.
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.

(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.
