Often times we receive several items at the same time that a manufacturer would like us to review. Typically this occurs when a new line of products has been released or a major update has been done and today is exactly that. With the introduction of their CAM software, NZXT has released an updated version of most of their products featuring this new connectivity. Today we’ll be taking a close look at NZXT’s newest 120mm AIO, the Kraken X31. NZXT has some notoriously well loved and great performing coolers in their armory, let’s find out if their newest, smallest offering lives up to those same standards.
LEPA has just announced their AquaCharger all-in-one liquid CPU cooler series. LEPA will be launching two models to start the AquaCharger 120 and AquaCharger 240. As you can guess the main difference between the two is the length of the radiator. The 120 model supports +300W TDP and the 240 model supports +350W TDP.
Thermalright has just announced their HR-02 Macho Rev. B CPU Cooler. This cooler is designed for both AMD and Intel sockets and features a single-tower design. The heatsink tower is made up of aluminum heatsink fins with a black top to give a little style to the cooler.
Spire has just announced their 4th generation of its Swirl CPU coolers. As the name suggests the Swirl IV features a unique fin-stack design in which swirl-shaped fins are arranged perpendicular to the plane of the motherboard. A lateral-flow fan then pushes air drawn from the central cutout in all directions through the fin-stacks that surround it.
Deep Cool has done this with their first liquid CPU cooler, the Gamer Storm Maelstrom 240 AIO Liquid Cooling. Do we see the force of a Maelstrom being represented? You be the judge. They use a unique pump with closed impeller to offer more power, less vibration, and lower noise as a result.
For several years now NZXT has been reaping the benefits of listening to the computer building/modding community and delivering products that they actually want. This in turn has led to one of the most loyal customer bases and served to increase the popularity of their brand. So NZXT has amassed what is essentially an all-star team of products ranging from power supplies to cases to CPU coolers and pretty much everything in between save for the bits that do the number crunching. Fortunately for us they haven’t let up yet. Today we will be checking out their newest offering in the AIO cooler category the Kraken X41. Follow along as we find out if this cooler deserves a starting position, or an eternal ride of shame on the bench.
GELID Solutions has just unveiled their latest version of their Tranquillo CPU cooler. The Tranquillo Rev. 3 CPU Cooler is part of GELID Solutions SILENT product line and includes a 120 mm fan with intelligent GELID PWM control.
Recently we took a close look at DeepCool’s initial offering in the AIO cooler category, the Maelstrom 120. Released under their new moniker Gamer Storm we found that although it was a decent first attempt, it left us wanting in a few areas. Mostly we were hoping for just a little more performance. Well as it happens DeepCool also offers a Maelstrom 240 AIO. This unit is the big brother to the 120, and is nearly identical aside from having a larger radiator. Could this be the answer to the performance gap the 120 left us with? Read on as we take an in depth look at the DeepCool Maelstrom 240.
Swiftech today has announced the release of the H240X all-in-one CPU liquid cooling kit. This kit follows in the footsteps of the already released H220-X CPU cooler, but features an even larger dual 140 mm copper radiator and 140 mm fans, complete with an enthusiast grade pump and water-block.
LEPA is a company you may not have heard of. They are a division of Ecomaster and are being supported by Enermax so many of their products are similar. Today we will be taking a look at one of their latest CPU Coolers the LV12. The single tower cooler comes in white or black flavors to match your hardware and features four large copper heatpipes, a 120 mm cooling fan, a louver fin design and H.D.T. (Heatpipe Direct Touch) Technology which means the heatpipes will make direct contact with your CPU.
