AeroCool`s new case, the Sixth Element. The name got me thin king about what the Sixth element is, I mean if the 5th Element was the sup reme being in the shape of Milla Jovovich then the Sixth element must be so mething pretty special."

     Tue, Aug 30 2011 | 4:58P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A good fan is required for every computer if you want to have stable cooling and decent noise levels. Zalman is well known for their cooling products and today we are taking a look at their ZM-SF2 case fan and compare it vs other 92mm fans on the market.

Cooler Master NotePal U-Stand Laptop Cooler
     Thu, Aug 25 2011 | 5:37P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The U-Stand is Cooler Master’s latest laptop cooler. But this is not just any laptop cooler as Cooler Master has added some of their very own. The U-Stand can support up to 17” laptops and has five adjustable height levels to allow for better comfort and usability.

Cooler Master GeminII S524 HSF
     Wed, Aug 24 2011 | 12:02P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Cooler Master GeminII S524 is a great cooler that has more than enough cooling potential for stock builds that want to be silent. It also has excellent cooling potential for users who want to push their hardware as far as they can; the 4.0Ghz San Ace test is a good example of this. The only thing we would have liked to see with the S524 us a simpler install method.

Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 Pro
     Wed, Aug 17 2011 | 3:07P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We've seen earphones from Arctic, along with mice, keyboards, and even bluetooth headsets. With all these new lines coming out, Arctic still hasn't forgotten their history, and continues to make great performing CPU coolers and cooling accessories like the Freezer 13 Pro CO being tested here today."

Enermax TBSilence 120mm Fans
     Sun, Aug 14 2011 | 9:03A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When talking about computer systems, one topic sure to come up is heat and air flow. To remove the heat from within a computer case, we use fans. But which fans? Fast, noisy ones? Quiet ones that only move tiny amounts of air? Luckily. consumers currently have more choices than that. In this review, we are going to consider some choices from Enermax. Understanding that enthusiasts want to be able to move air through their cases quietly, Enermax has created the TBSilence fans. They price from $5 to around $13-$14 depending on the size and type. Ranging in size from 80mm to 140mm, these fans come in four different configurations: a PWM controlled fan, a fixed RPM model, a lightning LED fan, and a manual speed control model.

Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 Pro CPU Cooler Review
     Thu, Aug 04 2011 | 4:02P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Today we get the opportunity to check out a new idea on CPU coolers, at least to us here at Think Computers. We’ll be checking out the Freezer 13 Pro from Arctic Cooling, which not only has 120mm fan for cooling, but also a small 50mm fan that is attached to the base which helps cool the base and provide better airflow underneath the heatsink. Read on further to check out this new idea and find out how well it performs."

Evercool FIT Notebook Cooler
     Tue, Jul 26 2011 | 2:41P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have just taken a look at the Evercool FIT NB-FT1 Notebook Cooler. This is a small cooler that uses a slightly different approach to cool off your toasty laptop computer. The FIT pulls hot air out instead of providing airflow to the bottom of your notebook. It's a different idea that actually has some merit - if you can get it to mount flush with your cooling vents. Check our review for all the details.

Cooler Master LapAir Laptop Cooler
     Fri, Jul 15 2011 | 3:30P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Unlike the Comforter, the new LapAir is actively cooled. Which to me means that it should obviously perform better than the Comforter, cooling-wise at least. But, can it replace the Comforter in the... well, comfort department? We will take the cooler for a test spin and see just how well it works out.

Zalman ZM-NC2500Plus Ultra Quiet Notebook Cooler
     Fri, Jul 15 2011 | 3:27P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Here we have another Notebook Cooler from Zalman, this time it’s the NC2500Plus Ultra Quiet model. The NC2500Plus features dual Intake fans and can support notebooks up to an impressive 17” Widescreen. With this being an upgrade to the NC1500 model, there are obviously a few new features such as the 3 USB ports instead of 1 and also the ability to dock a 2.5” HDD within the cooler itself, to provide more HDD space for your notebook.

Cooler Master NotePal Infinite EVO Laptop Cooler Review
     Fri, Jul 15 2011 | 9:01A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Looking back when I was a stubborn and arrogant little child (Some 3-4 years ago), it was almost crystal clear to me that laptop cooling pads were a waste of money. Reason? Well, at the time, it seemed ludicrous as to why and how adding additional cooling to the underside of a notebook could improve performance when; (A) Even though most notebooks can get pretty hot under load, their underside still usually remains fairly cool; (B) The fans from the cooling pad are obviously not blowing directly at the components making it quite inefficient; and (C) Cooling pads are generally bulky, loud, and very unappealing. Also, I cannot forget to mention that my brother's laptop still managed to catch on fire at the time, although there are probably more problems to that than just overheating, haha. Certainly, many of you readers are questioning the capabilities of notebook cooling pads like I did. You are unsure of whether investing in one will actually lower the temperatures of your laptop. And even if the temperatures go down by a small fraction, is it really worth your hard earned moolah? Since these fundamental questions are frequently asked, let me provide you with some insight. Simply read this review and all your questions will be answered. Hey, what did you expect? I cannot provide all the answers without you making it half way. But I can introduce you to today's review on Cooler Master's NotePal Infinite EVO. Simply put, this tame cooling solution is quite the buy (Since as the name suggests, the unit went through infinite evolutions), so let's jump right in!

Cooler Master NotePal X-Slim Laptop Cooler
     Tue, Jul 12 2011 | 6:29P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It looks as if Cooler Master is back in the spot light again with a new notebook cooler, returning with the new NotePal X-Slim. The X-Slim is not out to dominate all the other coolers that Cooler Master has to offer. It’s more of a simple unit that is lightweight, easy to transport, adjustable and able to cool notebooks ranging from 7” to 17”.

Cooler Master NotePal Infinite Evo Duo Silent Fan Notebook Cooler Review
     Wed, Jul 06 2011 | 12:03P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Cooler Master is ready to release their newest line of NotePal coolers, starting with the NotePal Infinite Evo Duo Silent Fan Notebook Cooler. The Infinite Evo adds a bit of style and high performance and an excellent price. The design uses a unique U-shape airflow method that intakes with two 80mm fans. Fans can be controlled by a speed control wheel on the side by the USB power connection. The top of the Evo is made of a high quality aluminum pad that has a sand-spray finish. It is USB powered and includes a 3 port USB 2.0/1.1 hub. There is also an ergonomic design angle for optimal viewing and typing. There is support for 12" to 17" laptops."

Sentry Mesh Fan Controller
     Tue, Jul 05 2011 | 12:00P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Sentry Mesh is setup in such a way that no less than 40% of the maximum 12V of power courses through the veins of each cable at all times. This means that in the potentiometer's lowest position, the fans are still providing necessary airflow for your components while being virtually silent. This differs from the Sunbeamtech Rheosmart 6, where the potentiometers had a voltage range from 0V (off) to full blast as 12V. I prefer NZXT's method, particularly so with my Noctua case fans. They are quiet enough to begin with, but are virtually silent when the sliders are set to their lowest setting of 40% voltage. This feature also ensures that no matter how low the sliders are set, there will always be some air circulation."

Thermolab Trinity Heatsink Review
     Mon, Jul 04 2011 | 4:13P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Thermolab's Trinity heatsink stands 149mm tall with a footprint of 136x58mm. The aluminum finned heatsink weighs 735 grams and comes with one 130x130x25mm PWM fan that operates at 1800-600RPM. The fan is mounted to the heatsinks' fins with permanently attached rubber vibration absorbing posts. Four 6mm diameter sintered metal wick exposed base heatpipes form the backbone of this CPU cooler while a simple bracket system allows it to install onto Intel socket 775/1155/1156/1366 and AMD socket AM2/AM3/FM1 processors."
