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."

Arctic Accelero Xtreme Plus II
     Wed, Jun 29 2011 | 4:03P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Arctic , previously known as Arctic Cooling has a long reputation in creating silent yet very powerfull cooling components. This all at an afforcable price. Most known are the versatile GPU coolers. Versatile as most models can be used on a wide range of reference PCBs. This being it ATI/AMD or Nvidia based. Today we received their brand new revised version of the Accelero Extreme Plus. Well you guessed it this slightly revamped version is called the Plus II. Victim of the day is our hot GTX480 Fermi card. Easily reaching over 80°C in gaming and close to meltdown when being tortured with Furmark

NZXT HAVIK 140 Heatsink Review

Posted by: STAFF
“The NZXT HAVIK 140 heatsink is the company’s first foray into the competitive air cooling market. It will be interesting to see if NZXT just cobbled something together or if they did some serious research into cooling modern CPUs."

Thermaltake Jing CPU Cooler
     Tue, Jun 14 2011 | 4:02P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Well, for the Jing's size, these results kind of surprise me. I expected a little bit lower temperatures, but in reality it only performed a few degrees cooler than the average temperatures of the comparison coolers. However, for the Jing's fan design and flow rates along with their static pressure, these results turn out to be a little ordinary. The high speed a low speed tests leave little to the imagination, as lower fan speeds cause a slower heat transfer between the surface of the fins and the air blowing over them."

Auras Shagon ARC-118 Heatsink Review on Frostytech.com
     Thu, Jun 02 2011 | 2:48A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Been searching for a sub-145mm tall heatsink? If so, you'll want to pay close attention as Frostytech tests the Auras Shagon ARC-118 tower heatsink - it stands just 139mm tall!
www.frostytech.com
In the era of +160mm tall tower heatsinks, it's getting harder and harder to find a CPU cooler suitable for compact PC chassis.The Auras Shagon ARC-118 heatsink is built around four 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and a 50x100mm aluminum fin stack. The heatsink features an exposed heatpipe base and utilizes a single 2400-1000RPM 92mm PWM fan for all its cooling needs. Since this heatsink is equipped with a 92mm fan, noise levels tend to be moderate at stock speeds and whisper quiet at minimum RPM. Total heatsink foot print is 101x88mm, its weight is 460 grams.

Thermaltake Jing Heatsink Review on Frostytech.com

"Thermaltake's Jing heatsink is a dual fan tower style cooler that comes in a bright shade of nuclear green. The heatsinks' twin 128mm fans spin at 800-1300RPM in a push-pull orientation and create a modest amount of noise according to our real world sound measurements. Weighing a hefty 920 grams, the Thermaltake Jing stands 161mm tall and installs onto Intel socket 775/1155/1156/1366 and AMD socket AM2/AM3+ processors. While the Thermaltake Jing heatsink performed quite well on both the Intel and AMD reference charts at stock fan speed, the heatsink is best run with its front and rear fans rotating at 800RPM."

Posted by: STAFF
Recently we reviewed a few items from Arctic Cooling that help gamers stay cool under pressure. A gamer won't get the opportunity though if their rig can't do the same. You don't have to have a top-of-the-line gaming laptop to worry about its temps; the nature of all that hardware in such a little space is cause enough to create concerns. Arctic Cooling has also has a solution for your mobile computing companion, and today we sit down with the notebook cooler to put it to the gamer's test.

Evercool Transformer 3 Heatsink Review on Frostytech.com

In this review Frostytech will be putting the Evercool Transformer 3 heatsink through its paces. The Transformer 3 is a tower-style heatsink which stands exactly 160mm tall. The cooler comes with a single 120mm PWM fan that operates at speeds of 2200RPM to 800RPM, though a second fan can added to the rear if desired. Four white vibration absorbing rubber posts are used to reduce vibrations from the fan motor to the heatsink, extra fan posts are supplied. The heatsink stands 160mm tall, is 130mm wide and 78mm deep with the single fan.

Xigmatek Gaia SD1283 Heatsink Review on Frostytech.com
     Mon, May 30 2011 | 4:08A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.frostytech.com
www.frostytech.com
Forged in the mountains by a one-eye'd master heatsink maker who learned the trade before the dawn of the first X86 integrated circuit, the Xigmatek SD1283 Gaia heatsink is... is... ...yet another tower heatsink built around the direct touch heatpipe technique. Weighing in at a moderate 460 grams, the Xigmatek SD1283 Gaia is compatible with socket 775/1155/1156/1366 Intel CPUs and socket 754/939/940/AM2/AM3 AMD processors. As is the case with most tower-style heatsinks, compact computer users might have a hard time fitting all 159mm's worth of the SD1283 Gaia into a slim computer case.

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.
