Corsair ML120 PRO LED Fans Review
     Mon, Aug 15 2016 | 3:59P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Of all the PC parts that we research and drool over, YouYube, pre-order, and add to cart, there is one that is almost always left of the list. Not only do they not get much attention from most builders, they are often forgotten until the very end. And it’s a complete shame really because a hasty or monetary based decision can often lead to a less than desireable finished product. So what is this red headed stepchild of the PC? Fans of course! Personally I love fans. They are one of the first things that I consider when working on a new build. The reason as I said, is that your fan choice can seriously make or break your rig. Budget fans are often noisy, gaudy, and will generally fail early or arrive non-functional altogether. Fortunately our beloved parts manufacturers have your back and there is a whole load of options to choose from. Today we’ll be taking a look at a brand new offering from one of the strongest companies in the market, the ML120 PRO LED by Corsair. Follow along as we try out a set of six of these new air pushers to see if they are worthy of more of your attention or just another boring plastic square to pass over."

Noctua NH-D9DXi4-3U LGA2011 Xeon Server/Workstation Heatsink Review
     Tue, Apr 19 2016 | 10:41A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Noctua NH-D9DXi4-3U is a mid-sized heatsink designed specifically for lower noise cooling of Intel Xeon processors in 3U height computer/server chassis. It's compact stature makes it ideal for rack mounted computers in a recording studio, video editing suite, operations control center, office environment or anywhere Xeon-based computers have typically had to be relegated to the 42U rack. The NH-D9DXi4-3U heatsink stands 111mm tall and has a footprint of just 95mm square, ensuring it won't overhang adjacent memory slots or interfere with PCI Express cards. "

Noctua NH-L9x65 Low Profile Heatsink Review
     Mon, Apr 11 2016 | 5:41P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

"Noctua's low profile NH-L9x65 heatsink stands just 64mm tall and has a very compact footprint of only 95x95mm. The NH-L9x65 is designed to cool some fairly intensive Intel sockets, along with the full spectrum of AMD processors and APUs. Compact CPU coolers can be a little tricky to install, but Noctua long ago laid down the framework of an excellent motherboard mounting system,, so the NH-L9x65 is a breeze to work with."

Gelid Antarctica Ultra-Quiet Tower CPU Cooler Review
     Sat, Apr 09 2016 | 12:01P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gelid are one of the most legendary cooling companies in the world and while you may not think of them first when you’re looking at a new CPU cooler, they’re the top choice for many system builders, enthusiast overclockers, and all of us here at eTeknix for our test benches, when it comes to Thermalpaste. Gelid GC-Extreme has been a popular choice for many years, and it’s with that in mind that we know that Gelid has a fair bit of knowledge when it comes to thermal performance in the PC market.

Lamptron Touch Six-Channel Fan Controller Review
     Wed, Apr 06 2016 | 9:00A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fan controllers have been around for a long time and they have pretty good usefulness as newer hardware develops in time. Not much has changed except its aesthetics and functions, so they still do the same job- control and monitor fan speed, along with voltage and temperature monitoring. Lamptron Touch six-channel fan controller isn’t new. Judging by the release date and user posts in multiple tech forums, it’s been around since 2010 or 2011- as old as Hardware BBQ itself. What’s interesting is that it uses a touch screen as a means to allow a user to change the screen and adjust fan speed according to their preference. It’s a six-channel-based CNC milled aluminium interface with the ability to view and control RPM/VDC for fans, but also monitor voltages and temperatures in Celcius or Fahrenheit. This allows 30 watts per channel with automatic or manual fan control options. That’s adequate even for cooling fans available today.

Scythe Fuma SCFM-1000 Heatsink tested on Frostytech
     Mon, Apr 04 2016 | 1:57P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

"The Fuma heatsink stands 148mm tall and features twin 120mm PWM fans arranged in push-pull configuration. Even with dual fans, it manages to maintain a relatively compact footprint of 130x130mm. Both fans operate at 1400-600RPM, moving upwards of 79CFM at 1.56mmH20 static pressure according to manufacturer specs. As with most Scythe heatsinks, the Fuma is designed primarily as a lower noise thermal solution."

Swiftech H320 X2 All-In-One Watercooling Kit Review
     Wed, Feb 10 2016 | 4:00P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
All-in-one (AIO) water cooling units have brought the performance and silence of water cooling to the masses with the simplicity of installing an air cooler. AIOs offer simple installation without the need to bleed the loop. Simply attach the hardware and power cables and you are all set. Recently, water cooling component manufacturers have upped the ante a bit by …

Scythe Ninja 4 SCNH-4000 Heatsink Review
     Mon, Feb 08 2016 | 2:21A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" While Scythe doesn't overtly market its heatsinks as "silent", the company has typically produced CPU coolers which do meet the quiet esthetic. In this review Frostytech will be testing out the new Scythe Ninja 4 heatsink - a 156mm tall boxy looking thermal solution which is designed for lower noise cooling. The Scythe Ninja 4 CPU cooler weighs ~900grams and has a footprint of around 145x130mm."

Silverstone are the masters of ergonomics
     Wed, Jan 20 2016 | 9:00A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The design team at Silverstone are the masters of ergonomics, something we’ve seen time and time again with their revolutionary space-saving chassis designs. Not only have they created some masterful chassis, but they also have a great range of cooling products that are perfectly designed for tighter spaces, such as slim fans, low-profile air coolers and slim AIO radiators. Today, we’ll be taking a look at the Tundra TD02-Slim, a 240mm AIO water cooler with a total thickness of just 37mm, with the fans installed! This is going to be a great cooler for mini-ITX and Micro-ATX chassis designs where space is at a premium.

DeepCool Gamer Storm Lucifer K2 Heatsink Review
     Fri, Jan 08 2016 | 6:07P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"DeepCool's Gamer Storm Lucifer K2 heatsink is a revised version of the original Gamer Storm Lucifer heatsink, which Frostytech tested about a year back. The Lucifer K2 heatsink only differs in that it's not nickel plated and ships with a slim profile (20mm thick)120mm fan which makes the heatsink a little more accommodating on confined motherboards."

DeepCool Maelstrom 240 Liquid Cooling System Review
     Thu, Jan 07 2016 | 11:45A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

"DeepCool's Maelstrom 240 is a self contained CPU liquid cooling system consists of a dual fan, 240mm wide aluminum heat exchanger and combination pump head / skived copper waterblock. The Maelstrom 240 is based on the same basic collection of parts that literally dozens of other liquid coolers utilize, but with Frostytech's synthetic thermal test platforms applying up to a 200W heat load, only we can accurately rank how the Maelstrom 240 liquid cooler stacks up against these other all-in-one CPU liquid coolers!"

Gelid Antarctica Heatsink Reviewed on Frostytech
     Mon, Jan 04 2016 | 1:36P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com
The Gelid Antarctica heatsink features a nice narrow footprint which measures 141x74mm with the 140mm fan installed. The slim profile should make the Antarctica cooler more compatible with a larger range of motherboards.

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.
