It has been quite a while since we’ve reviewed a product from Reeven so we were quite excited when they told us they would be sending over their flagship Okeanos (RC-1402) CPU cooler. This cooler features a pretty large dual tower design, two cooling fan, six hefty copper heatpipes, and a pretty sleek look. Reeven tells us that this cooler was designed with gamers and overclockers in mind so it should be able to handle some pretty hefty thermal loads as well. Let’s see if Reeven brings the entire package with the Okeanos.
Arctic has just revealed a new passive CPU cooler designed for LGA115x processors. The Alpine M1 Passive is a fan-less CPU cooler designed with a cooling capacity of 48W TDP. So with that it is only recommended for dual-core LGA1150 and LGA1151 Core i3, Pentium, Celeron, or energy-efficient Core i5 processors.
Californian hardware manufacturer Antec introduces the liquid coolers Kühler H2O H600 PRO and H1200 PRO. These compact systems combine maximum efficiency, high performance and great build quality.

Recently SilverStone blew us away by showing what the possibilities are from a design perspective with an AiO. We were so impressed that their TD02-E made our best of 2015 AiO list. While the cooler was aesthetically appealing it did leave something to be desired in the performance equation. Today we take a look at another cooler from SilverStone, this one wholly different altogether. Designed with tighter spaces in mind, follow along as we check out the TD02-Slim and find out if SilverStone was able to pump some extra performance into a much thinner form factor.

The heatsink is coated in dark nickel and it’s complimented by interchangeable top plates. Four different color plates are included to match the cooler with most popular high-end components.
Be quiet’s Dark Rock line of CPU coolers are their high-performance line meant to handle the most extreme processors and thermal loads out there. While most of the coolers in the line are tower coolers there is one that is different, it is the Dark Rock TF. The Dark Rock TF or Dark Rock Top-Flow is a C-type cooler that features two powerful nickel-plated aluminum heat sinks and two 135 mm SilentWings cooling fans. Be quiet calls this cooler a compact cooler, but it is one of the larger C-type coolers that we’ve seen. It is supposed to offer one of the best performance-to-noise ratios in its class. Let’s get it installed and see what it can do!
EVGA also has a portfolio of liquid-cooled graphics cards, but they will be coming out with all-in-one liquid coolers for both the CPU and GPU. These will be the Hydro QRC and Hydro QRG, the QRC is designed for CPUs, while the Hydro QRG is designed for GPUs.
Scythe has really made a name for themselves in the DIY PC cooling market since being founded back in 2002. Over the years they have had some really great CPU coolers, many which we have reviewed. The Ninja series has primarily been reserved for the top of the line coolers from Scythe and the cooler we have on the review block today definitely fits that bill. It is the Ninja 4, which is the 4th major revision of the famous Ninja cooler. This very large CPU cooler features 4 heatsink stacks, 6 heatpipes, and a 120 mm cooling fan. Can it compete with some of the other larger CPU coolers out there? Read on as we find out!

The cooler has a single tower design with an aluminum fin-stack that has wavy “diamond edge” patterned fins designed to increase air-flow/turbulence.
