Noctua today presented its new NH-L9i and NH-L9a low profile CPU coolers for Intel and AMD. At a super-low profile of only 37mm, the NH-L9 coolers are ideal for extremely slim cases and with footprints tailored to the respective socket keep-out zones, they provide full compatibility with tall RAM modules and VGA cards on mini-ITX mainboards. Topped off with the new NF-A9x14 PWM premium fan, the NH-L9 coolers fuse everything users have come to expect from Noctua’s larger coolers into a super-compact package for slim HTPC systems.
We have already taken a look at G.Skill’s RipjawsZ and RipjawsX memory now it is time for their ARES series of memory. The ARES memory is designed to be low-profile so you can use it with larger aftermarket CPU coolers. Today we are taking a look at the 16GB kit of the ARES memory, specifically the F3-2133C11Q-16GAO kit. This kit runs at 2133MHz with timings of 11-11-11-30 at 1.6V. You can get these kits with both blue or orange heatspreaders. Read on as we take this memory through the paces.
We are back with another quad channel memory kit from G.Skill! This time it is their Ares DDR3-2133 16GB Quad Channel Kit. This kit runs at 2133MHz with timings of 11-11-11-30 at 1.60v. Since this is a quad channel 16GB kit each module is 4GB. G.Skill has designed these modules to be low-profile with very small heatspreaders. Perfect for systems with large CPU coolers and small form factor systems. The heatspreaders come in 2 different colors, blue and orange. Read on to check out our unboxing and overview video.
When you are building a home theater PC or small form factor PC it is really hard to find a CPU cooler that will not only fit, but provide adequate cooling as well. We know Noctua for making extremely large CPU coolers, some of the largest air coolers that we have seen actually. Today we are checking out one of their latest CPU coolers the NH-L12. What is interesting about it is that it is a low-profile cooler made for home theater PC’s and smaller systems. Will this cooler still provide the great cooling power we are used to seeing with Noctua CPU coolers? Read on to find out!
If you have been following the air CPU cooling scene for the past few years you have probably heard of Noctua. They makes some of the largest air cooling solutions available for your CPU. While their CPU coolers may be large, they do get the job done that is for sure! I was quite surprised when Noctua told me about their latest CPU cooler, the NH-L12. The reason I was so surprised was because it is a low-profile cooler! Interested? Read on to check out our unboxing and overview video!
CoolJag has heard your outcry for some decent mATX cooling, and released the Falcon II, a low profile copper/aluminum cooler with a 120mm fan. Marketed towards the HTPC crowd, it will work great for a high-end mATX rig. CoolJag has been been around for over two decades, and have been building PC cooling solutions since 2001, so they definitely know what they are doing. CoolJag is a leader in “skiving”, a heatsink design technology utilized in this cooler. Find out more about the Falcon II in the following pages!
