Xigmatek Gaia SD1283 Heatsink Review on Frostytech.com
     Mon, May 30 2011 | 4:08A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink

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.

Noctua NH-C14
     Sun, May 22 2011 | 12:00P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Currently tower-type coolers are known offer the best cooling performance, so it surprised us a bit to see a new top-flow CPU cooler from Noctua. We were even more surprised by the performance delivered which is better than any other cooler we tested before, including tower-type models.

How to Insulate for Single Stage Phase Cooling
     Tue, May 17 2011 | 9:01P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Any time you expose the atmosphere to something cold you run the risk that water in the air will begin to condense. Common forms of condensation would be an icy windshield, water on a cold can of Pepsi, and even the frost in your freezer. The only way to prevent condensation is to insulate against it.

Larkooler KU3-241 Watercooling kit
     Thu, May 12 2011 | 4:49P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With the summer coming up everyone is in dire need of adequate system cooling and Larkooler knows this. A while ago they introduced their new watercooling kit, which should be silent, cool and artistic at the same time. The KU3-241 is the follow-up of it’s older brother which means it must bring better performance to the table; let’s see if this holds true!"

Evercool HPK-10025EA Low Profile Cooler Review
     Mon, May 09 2011 | 4:03P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Evercool seems to have hit upon a good cooling design with the HPK-10025EA. Finally a small, low profile cooler has arrived that can really perform better than the OEM unit without breaking the bank. Available online for as little as $25 US, this little heatsink is a very good value, provided you don't expect too much of it, wattwise."

Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 Pro CPU Cooler Review
     Tue, May 03 2011 | 9:03A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When it's all said and done, Arctic Cooling's new Freezer 13 Pro, with it's innovative "Cross Blow" feature, is a worthy successor to the Freezer series of coolers. As of this writing, it only seems to be available from the Arctic Cooling website for around $55 US."

Xigmatek Loki SD963 Heatsink Reviewed on Frostytech
     Sat, Apr 30 2011 | 6:37A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

On the test bench today is Xigmatek's mid-compact Loki SD963 heatsink. The Xigmatek Loki SD963 stands 134mm tall, weighs 430 grams, comes equipped with a 92mm fan mounted on rubber vibration absorbing fan posts and will support a second 92mm fan if desired (not included). Over the next few pages Frostytech will tell you if the Xigmatek Loki SD963 heatsink is worth its weight in aluminum, or junk for the recycling bin. Let's begin.

Prolimatech Samuel 17 Low Profile CPU Cooler Review
     Mon, Apr 25 2011 | 5:14P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Samuel 17 Low Profile CPU Cooler may be tiny compared to what Prolimatech has been rolling out lately but that is also what makes it the ideal choice for people with severe space restrictions inside their PC cases.

Arctic NC Laptop Cooler Review
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 3:45P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Arctic NC is no doubt a nice product as you’d expect from Arctic. It does a decent job at cooling down a hot laptop. Its lightweight construction allows it to be portable which is always a plus. However, I am not a fan of the ergonomics of how it works. The need to rest just part of your laptop on it makes for a very unstable set-up; it has to be used on a flat surface and with care to prevent disaster.

Posted by: STAFF
Tucked away in a corner of Frostytech is a collection of acoustical absorbing / barrier / sealing & vibration damping materials, originally provided as a material sampler some years ago by the company Polymer Technologies. If you want to sound proof your computer a little more extensively than melamine foam can offer, this is a good primer on what different material technologies are commercially available.

"Thermaltake is no stranger to cooling, it's what they do. Besides making world class CPU coolers, cases and power supplies, they also make some of the best notebook coolers on the market.

ZALMAN ZM-F4 135mm Ultra Quiet Cooling Fan
     Mon, Apr 04 2011 | 4:03P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ZALMAN’s ZM-F4 cooling fan is a very unique product. For starters, it’s called a 135mm fan, but it’s actually able to mount into most 120mm spaces. That means that you can upsize pretty much any 120mm fan giving you the air flow of something a little larger. Check out the video review below for all you need to know…

Lamptron FC Touch Fan Controller Review
     Sat, Apr 02 2011 | 12:03P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Think fan controllers are boring? You haven't seen Lamptron's FC Touch, then. This is a unit that's encapsulates three important factors. It looks great, is powerful, and is simple to use. It can power up to 6x 30W fans, and it has a touch screen that's reliable and does just what is promised. Though a bit expensive, the FC Touch is unmatched.

EK Waterblocks full cover block for the Asus Rampage III Extreme
     Thu, Mar 24 2011 | 12:02P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ever tried to keep your X58 motherboards IOH and ICH temps at a reasonable operating temperatures ? To be honest most of the stock heatsinks really need some help as they are underdimensioned and/or lack an active fan. Temperatures over 65°C are very comon. Many watercooling companies jumped on the wagon to manufacture a all in one cooling solution for all the hot parts of the mainboard. No seperate waterblocks for the IOH and ICH chipset or PWM area. One block that cools down the hottest parts of your favoruite motherboard. EK Waterblocks was so kind to send us their clear nickel plated version for the Asus Rampage 3 Extreme

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
