Akasa has revealed a new submissively cooled chassis for Intel’s NUC platform known as the Newton which measures (154mm x 150mm x 47mm) and performs not only as a case but also a fan-less heat-sink for the Intel processor which is linked to the NUC motherboard. In particular, the Akasa Newton is compatible with the Intel D33217GKE or DCP847SKE NUC motherboard, depending on whether you want to have an Intel Core i3-3217-U or a Celeron 847-U respectively.
Scythe just unveiled its marvelous new Kaze Chrono Fan controller model (KM07-BK), a fan controller planned for 5.25 inch drive bays and exemplified by a large LCD panel with a brick matrix similar to Tetris handhelds which can display temperature, fan speed of various channels, sense a stopped or a failing fan or simply work as a clock (which flashes alarms too).
Intel’s Ivy Bridge had issues coping with the heat problem which may have been occurred because of the low quality thermal paste under the IHS (integrated Heat spreader). It was actually tested on a 4.5 GHz over clocked i5 3570K and results showed that using a better quality of thermal paste brought a difference of 8 degrees which was used for temperature reduction purpose. If the step taken by Toppc of Coolaler.com is to be believed then Ivy Bridge-E for X79, LGA 2011 will not have to go through the same problem as it has chosen to use much stronger and stable solder, the one Sandy Bridge has got.
Recently one of the Japanese PC cooling experts “Scythe’’ revealed a brand new high performance PC fan series known as the Grand flex. the company got on track with its 28mm-thick 120mm variants, out of which four are the fixed-speed variants that include; Grand Flex 800 RPM ( SM1225GF12SL), 1200RPM ( SM1225GF12L), 1600RPM( SM1225GF12M), and 2000 RPM(SM1225GF12H). All these four variants have the 3-pin connectors. Scythe also revealed another model called the Grand Flex PWM (SM1225GF12SH-P) which spins at a speed of 600-2500 RPM and includes the 4-pin PWM fan control.
Reeven has launched the RC-1401 large tower type CPU cooler. The design includes the usual aluminum fin stack. The heat is transferred to it by a combination of two 8mm thick and a three 6mm thick copper heat pipes. The 8mm thick ones extend to the stack’s border, while the 6mm thick pipes are restricted to the central regions. The top most fin is covered. These heat pipes emit from a nickel-plated copper base indirectly, which comes in a mirror finish.
Last year Noctua released their NH-L9 series low profile CPU coolers. They were extremely small (37mm) and offered some pretty good cooling as well. Noctua is back with a new low profile cooler that they were showing at Computex. This cooler is just a little bit bigger at 65mm high, but still will fit in compact systems pretty easily.
When you like about all-in-one water coolers I bet Enermax is not a name you think of, but they want to change that. Their first run of liquid CPU coolers were not all that great so they have gone back to the drawing board and have come up with some new designs that they were showing off at Computex. The big change in the cooler is the new SCT (Shunt Channel Technology) which they have used in the newly redesigned blocks.
So you’re putting together your all out custom build. You’ve got the best processor, motherboard, memory, GPU, and case you can buy. Now is the time you’re going to have to start thinking about fans and cooling. Whether it be air or water, you will need fans. This is often forgotten till the end, and this item is crucial to bringing all those bits together and helping them to perform to their fullest. While there are many options when it comes to choosing fans, it is very important to be selective in order to get the right fan for your configuration as well as a good quality fan. Today we are going to be taking a look at a broad selection of 9 fans from one of the most lauded fan manufacturers, Noctua.
Xigmatek carries on to initiate once again this time taking on Janus to be the name which hopefully would be heard for many years to come in the CPU cooling industry. Yes you got that right. Xigmatek has just introduced their low profile CPU cooler. This amazing machine is considered to be the world’s thinnest low profile coolers, varying at an incredible height of 60mm which can actually fit anywhere.
We all know of the custom cooling solutions offered by many graphics card manufactures out there. I’m sure you might have heard of DirectCU, TwinFrozr, JetStream and WindForce. EVGA is finally trying to compete with these other coolers with their new ACX (Active Cooler Xtreme) Cooler that will debut on NVIDIA’s 700 Series.
