Cooler Master MasterNotepal Maker Cooling Pad Review
     Thu, Jan 26 2017 | 4:03P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The MasterNotepal Maker cooling pad from Cooler Master offers quite a bit of flexibility regarding installation; the sandblasted aluminum surface helps with the head dissipation thanks to the large ventilation grill, while the fans underneath can be adjusted in the desired positions in order to match the intake vents from your laptop. The Maker version does include a base for adjusting the viewing angles, while the custom stoppers make sure that your laptop will never fall off. The cooling pad is also offered with a removable USB 3.0 & USB 2.0 hub, which can be used in two different modes."

XFX Hard Swap LED Fans @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Jan 21 2017 | 4:00P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So last week I took a look at XFX’s RX 480 and it, like the XFX RX 470, has what they call Hard Swap fans. The stock fans are just basic 90mm fans like you would find on most aftermarket cards, but without any tools they can be swapped with other fans. Along with the card, XFX also sent all three of their LED fan kits for me to check out. So today isn’t going to be a long day or anything, but I’m going to check out the new fans, see how easy they are to swap out, and take a look at all three LED colors on the XFX RX 480.

Cooler Master 212 LED CPU Cooler Review
     Mon, Jan 02 2017 | 9:00A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a long history in the PC component market, Cooler Master is often a popular choice for any system builder. Their now legendary 212 cooler series has long been the go-to product for those looking for excellent price vs performance ratios, and the best starting point for anyone looking to upgrade from the often lacklustre stock coolers that come with their new CPU. Over the years, we’ve seen a few minor revisions to the 212 cooler design, and the latest comes with a few minor tweaks, as well as the addition of an LED fan, giving it a little extra visual flair and giving the consumer a little more value for money at the same time.

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.

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.
