Glacialtech Igloo 5751 PWM Heatsink
     Mon, Aug 16 2010 | 4:21A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.frostytech.com

The Glacialtech Igloo 5751 PWM heatsink is identical to its namesake in all ways except for the fans. Where the original Igloo 5750 PWM cooler had a matched set of 20mm thick 92mm fans running in balance with respect to airflow, the Igloo 5751 PWM Frostytech is testing today approaches things differently.

Zaward Vapor 120 Heatsink Review
     Mon, May 10 2010 | 11:03P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.frostytech.com

Frostytech is back with a new heatsink review - this time it's a cheap and powerful tower heatsink from Zaward called the Vapor 120.

Zaward's Vapor 120 heatsink is another in a long list of thermal solutions to feature an exposed heatpipe mounting base. The concept is simple, but we've discussed it many times on Frostytech so let's jump ahead to the Vapor 120's truly unique attribute - fin dimples. To be specific, punctured spherical dimples.

Intel "Gulftown" Core i7-980X (LostCircuits)
     Tue, Mar 30 2010 | 12:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gulftown is without any doubt the most powerful processor we have ever laid hands on and it raises the bar for performance by almost 50% compared to Bloomfield. As such, the Core i7-980X is probably the first Extreme Edition to get excited about and arguably it is even worth the US$999.- price tag. Aside from the raw processing power, the other hi-light of the “980X” is its energy efficiency – of course with the caveat that we can only factor in core power as opposed to core plus L3 cache and uncore, which necessarily come into play when we are looking into processors with a common supply plane as in the case of AMD’s architecture. This said, there are a few caveats that are outside the hardware and relate primarily to the current software landscape. Some applications will not run on 6 cores, even if they are multithreaded, other applications that depend primarily on memory bandwidth will have a minor set-back compared to the i7-965 or 975. The good thing with respect to the first issue is that the “level of badness” will hopefully penetrate the ignorance at some of the software manufacturers and force them to get their act together. You snooze, you lose.

Zalman CNPS10X Performa Heatsink Review
     Sun, Feb 21 2010 | 10:59P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.frostytech.com

"Zalman's CNPS10X Performa heatsink is standard in most other respects, especially to anyone familiar with the CNPS10X-series. It's equipped with a 120mm PWM fan that ranges in speed from 900RPM to 1350RPM with the RC24P PWM-resistor attached, 2000RPM under full power. The 153mm tall CNPS10X Performa weighs in at 748 grams and installs onto Intel socket 775/1156 and 1366 processors. AMD CPU support is equally broad - socket 754/939/940 right through to socket AM2/AM2+/AM3 chips."

Zalman CNPS10X Quiet Heatsink Review
     Wed, Feb 17 2010 | 2:02A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.frostytech.com

Zalman's CNPS10X Quiet heatsink is equipped with a 120mm fan that ranges in speed from 1400RPM to 700RPM, which in real world terms means that noise levels are moderate to whisper quiet. As a low noise heatsink the CNPS10X Quiet maintains good thermal levels on Frosty's AMD/Intel test platforms, and at full tilt it qualifies as a performance heatsink.

GlacialStars Addressing the Mainstream to Entry Level Market
     Thu, Dec 31 2009 | 10:01P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
GlacialTech Inc., a diverse provider of cooling, power supply, and PC enclosure solutions for consumer and industrial applications, and a world-class provider of cost effective cooling components and chassis, announces the launch of GlacialStars branded CPU coolers, case fan, NB cooler and thermal compound, etc. Addressing from the mainstream to entry-level IT market, GlacialStars vouches for its value for money proposition. In the global competitive market, GlacialStars offers competitive advantage over the competition.

Price performance, noise performance and weight performance are GlacialTech's three principle design philosophies, which GlacialStars also offers at a very affordable price point.

The GlacialStars range of light weight CPU coolers , Case Fan, Cooling pad and other components are very conducive for the environment because of the low noise and high performance.

With GlacialStars components, the consumer PCs can be low in weight but high in performance. Normally, the component vendors do not take much care of the mainstream to entry level products because of the low margin but they forget that this market offers the largest volume. Especially, they do not take care of the noise and weight of the entry-level products, which makes the PC a bit bulky and noisy. Taking this aspect into consideration, GlacialStars' objective is to offer the consumers a better experience.

Compatible with Intel and AMD CPU systems, GlacialStars series products are designed especially for creative features and solid products.

Seasonic X-750 750W 80Plus Gold Power Supply Review
     Fri, Nov 27 2009 | 4:18A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

In this review PCSTATS will be testing out a 750W power supply from Seasonic's flagship modular gaming "X" series. The Seasonic SS-750KM is an Active Power Factor Correction (A-PFC F3) class unit which boasts the exceedingly hard to come by 80 Plus Gold rating. The X-750 reveals some clever internal choices; a quiet Sanyo Denki 120mm fan operates at near inaudible levels, the strategic use of solid state aluminum polymer capacitors, the modular cable board being a DC-to-DC converter rather than just a bundle of wires extending to jacks, and most strikingly... a nearly cable-less interior.

Thermolab BADA Heatsink Review
     Tue, Nov 03 2009 | 11:43P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.frostytech.com

From the makers of the wavy BARAM heatsink comes the Thermolab BADA; a 136mm tall mid-tower heatsink that fills in the performance cooling void where taller coolers can't go. Height you see, can quickly throw a wrench into PC plans when the cooler doesn't fit in the case.

Thermolab's BADA heatsink is equipped with one 95mm PWM fan mounted to the heatsinks' raw aluminum fins via sturdy rubber vibration absorbing posts. Interestingly for a commercial heatsink, Thermolab are pre-lapping the base of the BADA to ensure the three 6mm diameter exposed copper heatpipes are flat, smooth, and ideal for mounting onto the processor.

3Rsystem Iceage 120 Boss II Dimpled-Fin Heatsink on Frostytech!
     Mon, Oct 26 2009 | 12:51A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.frostytech.com

Frostytech have tested a new heatsink which comes in #1 on both of their test charts.... looks like a new record holder in the world of heatsinks has been crowned - and it isn't made by Thermaltake, Coolermaster or and of those "well known" companies.

"Let's get right to the point, 3Rsystem's Iceage 120 Boss II heatsink is currently one of the Top 5 heatsinks tested on Frostytech. Key to the success of this Korean-made heatsink on both AMD and Intel synthetic test platforms are five 8mm diameter exposed base heatpipes and a unique "X" pattern that places the heatpipes in the path of high velocity air from the coolers' 120mm fan. On top of that, the Iceage 120 Boss II heatsink utilizes dimpled surface fins which are intended to disrupt boundary layer laminar airflow."
