ARCTIC Accelero Xtreme 7970 VGA-Cooler Review
     Wed, Mar 28 2012 | 1:31P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ARCTIC Accelero Xtreme 7970 VGA-Heatsink arrived Technic3D. See you in the following Review the Accelero Xtreme 7970 with three 92mm Fans and five 6mm Copper-Heatpipes compared with the Reference-Cooler on a AMD HD 7970."

Noctua and Kingwin Ultra Quiet 120mm Fans
     Tue, Mar 27 2012 | 9:00A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While we couldn't possibly cover even a fraction of the fans on the market, in this article we are going to compare five 120mm fans to see which one is the superior fan for keeping you computer both cool and quiet. We will be taking a look at the DB-122 and DB-125 from Kingwin, as well as the NF-F12 PWM, NF-P12, and NF-S12B FLX from Noctua.

Choiix Wave Stand @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Mar 25 2012 | 9:03A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Tablets are all the rage these days. If you don’t have one, someone you know certainly does. At my house we didn’t until I recently purchased an iPad 2 for my wife. Now a lot of the cases we see fold back and will help prop the screen up slightly, but really that just works for a landscape view. A dedicated stand would be a bit more flexible here. Cooler Master has a product meant to address that issue. Enter the Cooler Master Wave Stand.

Noctua NF-F12 PWM Fan Review Update @Hi Tech Legion
     Fri, Mar 23 2012 | 12:03P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With our original review of the Noctua NF-F12 PWM fans complete, we came away not surprised but very impressed with what Noctua had done. We were curious to find out for ourselves how big of a difference there would be between Noctua's NF-F12 PWM fans and Cooler Masters Sickle Flows on a water cooled rig. Noctua was more than gracious, and sent us another three of their NF-F12 PWM controlled fans for our little experiment."

Arctic Cooling Alpine 64 Plus Heatsink Review
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 4:30P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

With the release of AMD's socket FM1 Fusion A8-3850 processors late last year there's been a growing need for inexpensive yet relatively quiet CPU coolers of moderate power. The 'Llano' processor only has a 100W TDP and costs just over $120 bucks, so expensive tower heatpipe coolers can be a little bit of an overkill. Arctic Cooling's Alpine 64 Plus heatsink is one economical option to consider; it's rated for 100W and stands 70mm tall so it fits in most media PC cases with ease.


ASUS Essence One review
     Tue, Feb 28 2012 | 12:03P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS Essence 1 is easily one of the most anticipated products to come along in the PC audio community in quite some time as many seen it as ASUS moving out of the general audio market and taking a shot at entry into the true high end audio marketplace. Can this new product offer excellent sound quality, features demanded by the external audio market and all for a reasonable price?

Glacialtech Igloo 5620 PWM Heatsink Test Report
     Tue, Feb 21 2012 | 2:32P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"While the Glacialtech Igloo 5620 PWM heatsink ships with one 92mm fan capable of operating at 2300-800RPM, additional fan clips are supplied for a second user-supplied 92mm fan to be installed if desired. The base of the heatsink makes use of exposed heatpipes to leverage the rapid heat conduction qualities of these thermal devices. Given the relatively compact height of the Igloo 5620 PWM heatsink, it should fit into a good variety of PC cases which are off limits to the vast number of +160mm tall heatsinks."

Coolermaster Hyper 612 PWM Heatsink Test Report
     Tue, Feb 21 2012 | 2:28P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

"On the test bench today is a boxy tower-style processor heatsink from Cooler Master called the Hyper 612 PWM. This is a pseudo-quiet cooling heatsink built around six, 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and a single 120x120mm PWM fan. The fan rotates at 2000-600RPM and offers at best, excellent thermal performance. At the slowest fan speeds you can expect very quiet but generally average performance from the Hyper 612 PWM heatsink."


Financial Analyst Day
     Fri, Feb 03 2012 | 4:01P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD has released an updated roadmap for these next two years, and the information contained within is quite revealing of where AMD is going and how they are shifting their lineup to be less dependent on a single manufacturer. The Financial Analyst Day has brought a few surprises of where AMD is headed, and how they will get there.

Glacialtech Igloo H58 Heatsink Review
     Tue, Jan 31 2012 | 9:02A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"On the test bench today is Glacialtech's Igloo H58 heatsink - a tower style exposed heatpipe base CPU cooler that marks one of the best efforts by this Taiwan-based thermal solutions manufacturer. The heatsink cools very well on both Intel and AMD platforms as you'll shortly see."

Xigmatek XAF Series 140mm Fan Round-Up
     Thu, Jan 19 2012 | 4:19P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Xigmatek was started in 2005 with the idea of producing quality products at an affordable price in the case & cooling market. Today, Xigmatek has a new batch of products to the table with the XAF Series of case & cooling fans. Today we have the chance to look at the XAF-F 140mm series of cooling fans from Xigmatek; take a look as we judge them based on advertised specifications and performance.

News - Evercool Transformer 3 (HPM-12025) Review at Overclockers Online
     Sat, Dec 24 2011 | 11:13A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Evercool has released a mid-range CPU heat sink that performs exactly the way they intended it to. Equipped with 3 heat pipes running through slim, attractive aluminum fins, cooled by a powerful 2200RPM 120mm fan (with room for an additional 120mm fan), the Transformer 3 nudges dangerously close to the territory of performance heat sinks. It would be very interesting to see how far the Transformer 3 could go with an additional 120mm fan."

XFX WarPAD @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Nov 25 2011 | 9:44A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you?re looking at mouse pads you really only have to consider a few things. Do you want a hard or soft mouse pad? How big does it need to be? Thickness? Would you like a design on it? Let?s be honest: the mouse pad market is a little hard to be innovative in. Ether it?s a good pad or it?s not. Most of the manufactures have resorted to designing pads with designs from popular movies and video games. It?s very rare that we see anything come along with a new design that truly innovates in the mouse pad market. XFX?s new mouse pad the WarPAD may do just that. Its edgeless design is very intriguing, but is it just a gimmick? There?s only one way to find out."

NZXT Sentry Mesh Fan Controller @ TechwareLabs
     Wed, Nov 23 2011 | 12:01P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NZXT`s newest fan controller eschews touchscreens, blinking lights, and complexity for five sliders - linear potentiometers. Both elegant and simple, the Sentry Mesh fits in without standing out - especially on the many cases with steel mesh front panels."
