Raijintek Pallas Low Profile Heatsink Review
     Wed, Apr 16 2014 | 4:15P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Standing just 69mm tall, the Raijintek Pallas CPU cooler is probably the largest low profile heatsink Frostytech as tested in recent memory. Raijintek's low profile Pallas heatsink is constructed around six 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and a 120x140mm array of nickel-plated aluminum fins. A chunky copper base plate helps spread the heat to the six heatpipes."

Silverstone NB04 Notebook Cooler Review
     Tue, Apr 01 2014 | 5:10P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Notebook coolers are a product that I know end users don’t often get excited about, and that is pretty understandable given that they serve a more practical purpose, rather than a function that you can enjoy. They do however provide a vital role when it comes to mobile computing and with more and more people using an ultra book, gaming notebook or similar style system as their main computer, there are one or two shortfalls that need to be navigated to fully enjoy them. When you’re out and about, your system is in a low power state and you’re just doing some web browsing, then things are typically nice and cool inside your system, it doesn’t have to work too hard. When you’re at home with your rig, or perhaps you have a high-end laptop instead of a desktop that you only use at home or in the office, then there is a good chance that you’ll be running it from mains power, with all the settings dialled up to 11, playing games and plenty of other high-end tasks, this is when your system starts to break a sweat. Having some extra cooling under your system can have a massive impact on the overall system temperature and lower temps can often translate to better performance, as well as improve the lifespan of various components. Let’s not forget noise, laptop fans are often small with ultra high RPM, so offloading much of the work to a larger and quieter fan in a notebook cooler can bring benefits to your ears too.

BeQuiet Dark Rock Pro 3 Heatsink Tested - the only review you need to read!
     Fri, Mar 21 2014 | 12:02P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In this review Frostytech will be testing BeQuiet's newest low noise CPU cooler, the Dark Rock Pro 3 heatsink. The Dark Rock Pro 3 was announced last month at CES 2014 and best of all, it's rated to 250W TDP! The Dark Rock Pro 3 is dual tower, dual fan, low noise CPU heatsink. In other words, if you want a quiet heatsink that handles like a performance cooler AND you have a motherboard which can accommodate it's boxy footprint, you're reading the right CPU heatsink review!"

CyberPowerPC Zeus Mini-I 780 SFF Gaming PC Review
     Thu, Mar 13 2014 | 9:00A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’ve been hankering to test out one of CyberPowerPC’s new Zeus Mini SFF gaming desktop models ever since we got some hands on time with it at CES, so we were happy to unpack the black and neon green Zeus Mini-I 780 that CyberPowerPC sent us this week. Small form factor (SFF) PCs are something of a trend these days, and frankly, it’s refreshing to see powerful machines on the market that don’t take up much space and and don’t weigh 50 pounds...

Noctua NH-U14S Review
     Thu, Feb 20 2014 | 8:31A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At idle (stock and overclocked), the Noctua NH-U14S was able to deliver temperatures consistent with the highest performing air coolers in this comparison field, which contains coolers costing much more. Looking at the stock load results, the NH-U14S does a fine job of removing the thermal load generated by the hot-running Haswell processor and keeps the temps within two degrees of the liquid cooled AIO (All In One) Nepton 280L. When overclocked, it is only three degress higher than the 280L, and still well below the thermal danger zone. And it is close, very close, to the performance of the much larger D14."

Scythe Ashura Shadow Heatsink Review
     Tue, Feb 18 2014 | 3:00P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

"The Scythe Ashura Shadow is a dark nickel plated version of the vanilla Ashura heatsink Scythe also has on the market. Structurally, there's no difference between the two coolers, aside from the cosmetic metal coating. The Ashura Shadow heatsink stands 162mm tall and has a footprint of 145x89mm so it should fit most motherboards without memory slot interference. "

nPowerTek NPH-1366-115HC Heatsink Review
     Tue, Feb 11 2014 | 5:43P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"At the center of the NPH-1366-115HC heatsink is nPowertek's proprietory copper heat column - essentially a 33mm diameter copper heatpipe. The inner walls and base of the heat column are covered by a sintered metal wick and the contents under vacuum with a small amount of working fluid. The nPowerTek NPH-1366-115HC heatsink is intended for socket LGA1366 Intel processors up to 150W TDP..."

21 function panels reviewed: buttons galore!
     Tue, Feb 11 2014 | 9:00A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Looking at the primary function of these panels - controlling fan speed - there are major differences in performance. The average energy consumption of a typical case fan is way less than 1A, but even in our 0.6A test four function panels fell short of 11V and another seven were below 11.4V, 5 percent below the ideal 12V. The most powerful case fans can take 1A of current, but only 11 panels in our test had voltages above 11V at that level. Only three, the Lamptron FC5V2, NZXT Sentry Mesh and Akasa FC.Trio remained above the 11.4V boundary with 1A. The same three performed the best with 1A on more than one channel.

nPowerTek NPH-1366-140HC Heatsink Review
     Thu, Feb 06 2014 | 12:56P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The nPowerTek NPH-1366-140HC heatsink is intended for socket LGA1366 Intel processors up to 130W TDP. On the inside of the NPH-1366-140HC heatsink is a hollow copper heat column and surrounding this, a bog-standard bifurcated aluminum fin extrusion. The heat column functions essentially like a large heatpipe, you can see the inside of one in our review of Intel's FCLGA4-S reference heatsink. The copper heat column is 33mm in diameter, with the inner surfaces covered by a sintered metal wick and the contents under vacuum."

Titan Master USB Fan Review
     Wed, Jan 29 2014 | 10:02A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For several years I have been using my wife`s old desk fan she got during band camp in the 1980`s. It was loud, bulky, and horribly inefficient - I am sure it resulted in several pounds of carbon being released into the atmosphere every time I turned it on. But the Titan Master USB Fan firmly plants me in this century. It is whisper quiet, uses little energy, and moves the right amount of air."

Dynatron G555 2U Xeon Server Heatsink Review
     Tue, Jan 28 2014 | 12:40P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In this review Frostytech is testing a 2U server heatsink for Intel Xeon processors called the Dynatron G555. The heatsink stands 67mm tall and uses a top mounted fan which impinges air downward into densely packed aluminum fins. The fan rotates at 5,5000RPM and moves upwards of 54CFM airflow at a very loud 67.8 dBA noise level. The 23x84x84mm PWM fan can slow to 1000RPM (8.4CFM) during low duty cycles and is rated to between 0.24mm-H2O to 5.6mm-H20 static pressure."

Cooler Master Nepton 280L Liquid Cooling System Review
     Fri, Jan 24 2014 | 2:26P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

Coolermaster's Nepton 280L is the best performing all-in-one CPU watercooler Frostytech has tested... thus far. At the business end of the Nepton 280L we find a new generation waterblock / pump head. Near as we can determine, the micro skived copper fins cover somewhat more surface area than previous generations we've tested, which means more copper is exposed to passing coolant and heat transfer is improved. Details on the integral pump are undisclosed, however pump life is pegged at 70,000hrs MTBF.

Cooler Master Nepton 140XL Liquid Cooling System Review
     Fri, Jan 24 2014 | 2:25P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

Coolermaster's Nepton 140XL self contained liquid cooling system uses a 140mm wide heat exchanger designed for two 140mm PWM fans mounted in a push-pull configuration. The fans operate at 2000RPM-800RPM and generate a fair to minimal amount of noise, while moving between 122 - 54CFM of air. The waterblock is connected to the heat exchanger not by tiny little pipes, but via larger diameter, 15.5mm O.D. FEP tubing. Larger diameter tubing means more coolant can circulate through the waterblock compared to models like the Seidon 120V.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
