Cooler Master has just announced one of its most powerful air CPU coolers in the V8 GTS. It’s powered by the very same Horizontal Vapor Chamber (HVC) Technology that keeps high-end graphics cards cool while containing the sheer raw force of a maelstrom within its huge, powerful fans.
We are sure you have hardly seen any exciting top down cooler design but Scythe’s Grand Kama Cross 2 has definitely revolutionized that. This is second personification of Grand Kama Cross series and Is based on the similar unique heat sink design. It comprises of an exclusive X structure that permits the bulk of the heat sink mass to be located in the center and the upward sloping edge which means RAM and motherboard compatibility have greatly improved.
Zalman, a Korean company who is specialist in PC Cooling has declared to rework on one of its very old and most effective CPU cooler design, using the latest CNPS2X – computer noise prevention system. The design includes a mirror-finished copper base, via which a single 8 mm- thick copper heat pipe passes, making direct contact with the CPU. This heat pipe is twisted down into a spiral shape, and with help of its two arms, a spirally-projecting copper fin array emits heat. This array is further compressed down at the base. An 80 mm PWM-controlled fan is located inside the fin array; its downward and sideways airflow ventilates the fins. This low noise fan equips the user to control the RPM for attaining high performance/ low noise depending on the CPU temperature.
DeepCool has announced its latest CPU cooler classified under the superior brand of GamerStorm. DeepCool Lucifier is a large tower-type CPU cooler. The size of the heatsink is 140x110x163mm, 26mm thick including the fan while weighing 1097g. When talking about its design, it includes a mirror finished nickel-plated copper base out of which six 6mm thick heat pipes surface out across the two edges of aluminum fin stack.
Not long ago we took a serious look at one of Corsair’s most promising closed loop coolers, the H80i. It performed very well for a single 120mm radiator and left us wondering; if this is how well the H80i does, how will the H100i perform when it has an additional 120mm of rad space? Without further speculation, let’s get down to business shall we and see if the H100i can stand with the exceptional, or if you should pass on this one.
“Be quiet!” is a premium brand maker of power supplies and cooling solution for your desktop PCs. As the name indicates, the company has a ten years experience in the field of noise-reduction and silence which makes its products the most silent on the market.
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.
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.
I have to admit something; I hate top down air coolers. I can’t put my finger on what it is about them I so dislike. Perhaps it’s simply that they don’t tend to perform very well. Or maybe it’s just their strong dissymmetry that rubs me the wrong way. Whatever it is, something inside tells me to take a tower cooler over them any day. And so it is with great fear and trepidation that I present another air cooling product from German manufacturers, be quiet!, the Shadow Rock TopFlow SR1. Please follow along as I attempt to prove my instincts wrong., or right, as we find out how this cooler performs.
