XIGMATEK has just announced a new CPU cooler in their Dark Night II SD1483. The company will be offering this cooler in both black and white options. This tower-type cooler features an aluminum fin-stack that has a ceramic coating on its fins and heatpipes that increases surface area for heat dissipation.
Phanteks has been making a good name for themselves in the case market recently, but we have to remember they came into the industry making fans and CPU coolers. Today we will be taking a look at one of their latest CPU coolers, the PH-TC14S. This cooler incorporates the dual tower design and performance of the PH-TC14PE but in a slimmer form. The reason for the slimmer form factor is better compatibility. So this cooler is 100% compatible with tall RAM modules and larger motherboard VRM heatsinks. The cooler also features a dual-tower design, six large heatpipes and a single Phanteks PH-F140HP II PWM high static pressure fan. Can this cooler still gives us great performance? Read on as we find out!
DeepCool has rolled out its second generation GamerStorm Assassin CPU Cooler, the Assassin II. This type-D twin-stack cooler is just HUGE, measuring 143 mm x 158 mm x 167 mm (WxDxH) and weighing in at 1.48 kg (including fans). The cooler features a large nickel-plated copper base, eight nickel-plated copper heatpipes, two aluminum fin stacks and two cooling fans.
Smaller form factor systems keep on becoming more popular. With more and more full-featured smaller motherboards coming out many people are ditching their larger towers for these smaller form factor systems. With a small form factor system you only have a certain amount of space though. This is where the new Noctua NH-U9S comes in. Compared to other larger Noctua coolers that we have tested the NH-U9S has a smaller 95×95 mm footprint so it clears RAM and PCI-Express slots on most Intel and AMD motherboards, including mini-ITX motherboards. The cooler has a height of only 125 mm as well so it makes it very versatile in fitting inside smaller cases. We know Noctua for great performing CPU cooler, will this smaller cooler fit in the same category? Read on as we find out!
When I think of be quiet! CPU Cooler their Dark Rock Pro series comes to mind. These coolers are made to handle the highest thermal loads and are quite large. Not everyone is going to need this type of cooling and for that reason be quiet! has released the Pure Rock CPU cooler. This cooler is designed for the essential or entry-level systems to provide a great price-to-performance ratio. The Pure Rock has a single tower design that should not interfere with memory or other components, four 6 mm copper heatpipes and a 120 mm cooling fan. Let’s see what this cooler can do!
On NVIDIA’s latest releases, the GTX 970 and 980 we saw many add-in card (AIC) partners that use custom cooling solutions feature a idle-fan off mode. This feature allows for the fans on the card to turn completely off when the card is at idle or below a temperature threshold. This in turn makes the card completely silent when you are not gaming. NVIDIA is planning at add this feature to their next generation GeForce GTX Titan X graphics card.
Thermaltake is going to moving into the custom water cooling space with their Pacific Line of water cooling kits and accessories. We know Thermaltake for their line of all-in-one CPU coolers, but they want to take things to the next level with the Pacific series. The first major product to come out of the Pacific Series will be the RL240 water cooling kit.
be quiet! was showing off two brand new CPU coolers at CES 2015. These coolers are the Dark Rock TF (Top Flow) and Shadow Rock LP. As expected these coolers can handle pretty much any processor out there and of course have the quality we expect from be quiet!
Right before for Christmas Thermalright presents two new CPU coolers, which have been designed especially for fans of compact Mini-ITX or Micro-ATX systems: The Macho 90 and the Silver Arrow ITX.
CRYORIG, innovator of PC thermal peripherals, is preparing the second model in the H Series lineup, featuring H series standard HiveFin technology. Besides moniker HiveFin technology, the CRYORIG H7 will also incorporate Zero RAM Interference and many other great features found in previously announced CRYORIG cooling solutions. The CRYORIG H7 will be targeted at mainstream PC systems with limited CPU cooler height. Thanks to the total height of 145 mm, H7 will be able to fit almost all mid-tower cases.
