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.
Looking back into the not too distant past I can remember when the original Corsair H80 AIO cooler come out. I had started out my overclocking adventures a little while before that using an H70 and remember thinking how cool it would be to step up to the bigger more powerful H80. It had a much thicker radiator than my cooler and dual fans as well! Flash forward half a decade and here we are with the newest iteration of that cooler. While many things have changed, some things such as the dual fans and super thick radiator have stayed the same. The H80 was an excellent entry level cooler for those looking for higher performance back then; lets check out the latest version the H80i GT and see if the same is still true today.
Ahead of the coming 2015, Computex in June computer cooling innovation brand CRYORIG is introducing multiple new products and even multiple completely new product lines. This will be CRYORIG’s biggest Computex showing ever, introducing a total of 7 new products, 6 new product lines and four new product categories.
Be Quiet!, the market leader in PC power supplies in Germany for nine consecutive years, extends its Dark Rock family with a powerful new model in Top Flow-format: the Dark Rock TF combines a sophisticated cooler design with the proven SilentWings technology to successfully cool demanding systems with compact form factors.
Noctua has just announced two brand new CPU coolers, both of which have an asymmetrical layout in order to avoid blocking the top PCIe slot. The NH-D15S is a high-compatibility single fan version of the elite-class dual tower model NH-D15. The the NH-C14S replaces the proven top-flow cooler NH-C14.
Not that long ago CRYORIG sent us their flagship R1 Ultimate CPU cooler, which not only impressed us, but had a lot of cool technologies and other things we had never saw on a CPU cooler before. Now we are moving on to their H5 Universal CPU cooler, which as the name suggest is a cooler that will give you 100% memory clearance on mainstream sockets. While the R1 Ultimate was a dual-tower cooler, the H5 Universal has a single tower, but still retains much of the surface area of the R1 with its large fin design. The cooler itself features CRYORIG’s Hive Fin structure design, Jet Fin Acceleration System, Heatpipe Convex-Align System, and XT140 140mm cooling fan. Will this cooler be able to live up to the performance of the R1 Ultimate? Let’s get it in our system and find out!
Scythe has announced the official successor to their Ninja 3 Rev. B CPU Cooler. The new cooler comes with some major technical innovations, including the increased performance and reduction of overall weight by 180 grams. Wide range compatibility to the common sockets from AMD and Intel is assured, which is very typical for Scythe products.
Scythe has been making CPU coolers for quite a long time and today we have another one of their CPU coolers to review. The Scythe Ashura’s main goal is user-friendliness and a compact heatsink design while not sacrificing efficient cooling performance. The Ashura is designed as a single-tower cooler with six copper heatpipes and a 140 mm cooling fan. The cooler is compatible with all modern sockets on both the Intel and AMD side. Will this cooler be easy to install? And more importantly will it be able to compete with other tower coolers out there? Read on as we find out!
We’ve looked at a large portion of AIO coolers from the Fremont, California based hardware manufacturer Corsair. This includes our most recent review the H110i GT which set the bar high as the best performing AIO cooler that we have tested here at ThinkComputers. Of course that isn’t the limit of Corsair’s capabilities as they offer a full line of coolers for all different needs. Today we’ll once again take a look a large AIO cooler, the 240mm rad equipped H100i GTX. Follow along as we find out if this cooler can go punch for punch with it’s highly successful bigger brother.
