We might as well face it at this point, Cooler Master is on a roll. It seems like every other day the tech news has something to say about this or that new or innovative CM product. Everything from cases to keyboards, even a new mechanical key switch type. But all this kinda makes me wonder, are we just being hit with an exceptionally successful marketing scheme, or are these products really worth spending your hard earned cash on? Today we’ll be taking a close look at the Nepton 280L. This new CM AIO boasts a twin 140mm radiator amongst other features, and it’s time to find out if this is the real deal or simply another of the countless AIO’s ignore.
When we were first introduced to Noctua many years ago they were known for their massive CPU coolers. These were some of the best air-based CPU coolers available at the time and still are. Recently we have seen smaller designs from Noctua that take into consideration smaller systems and RAM clearance. Well Noctua is going back to their roots with the new NH-D15 CPU cooler. This massive CPU cooler is based on the award winning NH-D15 and features a dual-tower design with 6 copper heatpipes, two Noctua NF-A15 140 mm fans and Noctua’s SecuFirm2 mounting system for easy installation. Will this be the new ultimate air cooler? Read on as we find out!
CRYORIG has just released the H5 Universal as part of their new line of single tower coolers. CRYORIG H Series will for the first time feature CRYORIG’s proprietary Hive Fin technology. The Hive Fin design allows for turbulence reduction of the airflow as well as Jet Fin Acceleration for faster hot air exhaust.
If you remember Swiftech has to stop sales of their very popular H220 liquid cooling kit in the US because of a patent dispute with Asetek. Well Swiftech is back with their brand new patent pending H220-X liquid cooling system.
If it seems to you that every company in the market has an all in one liquid cooling offering you’re not alone. But this isn’t a bad thing. It just means there is more competition and competition drives innovation. Today we’ll be taking a look at one result of this competition, the slightly more evolved offering of AIO cooling from Enermax, the Liqtech 120X. At the top of their liquid cooling offerings the 120X is everything they can throw a hot CPU. Follow along as we take a closer look at this refined AIO and see how it compares to others.
Not that long ago we took a look at be quiet’s Dark Rock 3 CPU cooler, which proved to be a pretty decent cooler. The Dark Rock 3 was sort of the mid or entry-level cooler the Dark Rock 3 line and today we are checking out the big daddy or high performance offering the Dark Rock Pro 3! The Dark Rock Pro 3 is one of the largest CPU coolers we have taken a look at lately. It features dual heatsink towers, two be quiet! Silent Wings fans, seven large heatpipes and that sleek look that we have come to know from be quiet! CPU coolers. Now the question is how well is it going to perform? Read on as we find out!
After releasing several compact mainstream models, Scythe now presents a real performance highlight. The performance increase of the Mugen MAX has been achieved by implementing a new heatsink-design and six highly efficient copper-heatpipes. Scythe has used an asymmetric layout for the hetasink, where the copper baseplate is slightly shifted.
At Computex 2014 SilverStone was showing off their full range of liquid all-in-one CPU coolers. These included the new Tundra TD03 Slim and Tundra TD02 Slim. Both of these coolers take advantage of higher-airflow and air-flow noise ratio of the included fans so they were able to slim down the radiators.
While we mostly know Enermax for their cases they have been making cooling solutions for some time now. The CPU cooler we are taking a look at today is quite interesting as it is all white. The heatsink is white, the fan is white and it even has white LEDs. This makes it perfect to match with other white components or even a white case. The CPU cooler I am talking about is the ETS-T40 White Cluster. It features a tower heatsink stack design with four 6mm copper heatpipes that make direct contact with the CPU and a 120 mm cooling fan. The ETS-T40 has TDP support of 200W+ and can fit pretty much any Intel and AMD socket out there. Read on as we take a look…
