Deepcool Ice Matrix 400 Review
     Fri, Feb 25 2011 | 1:27P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When looking at the entire picture, Deepcool’s Ice Matrix 400 is a spectacularly assembled piece of equipment. Combining four heat pipes with a simple 120mm fan, the heat sink does well at keeping the CPU at acceptable operating temperatures.

Frostytech Top 5 Heatsink Chart - FIRST LOOK
     Thu, Feb 24 2011 | 2:16A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

What's the best heatsink for an Intel Sandy Bridge or AMD Phenom II X6 processor? Good question, we've got the answer in Frostytech's newly updated Top 5 Heatsinks Charts. Don't go heatsink shopping without it!

Heatsinks are ranked by lowest temperature, lowest noise and for low profile heatsinks too. Only heatsinks that were tested in the Frostytech Labs are included in these Top 5 Charts, so the ranking is 100% based on cold hard test data.

Titan Hati TTC-NC15TZ/KU(RB)
     Thu, Feb 17 2011 | 5:55P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mit dem Fenrir (nord. Mythologie Fenriswolf) stellte Titan einen Tower-Kühler mit vier 8-mm-Heatpipes vor, welcher bei seiner Veröffentlichung zu gefallen wusste. Der Hati stammt nicht nur in der nordischen Mythologie vom Fenrir ab, auch die Ähnlichkeit der beiden Kühler ist gegeben. So wird auch der Hati im Tower-Format gefertigt und arbeitet mit acht Millimeter starken Heatpipes, besitzt jedoch nur drei von diesen. Schmaler aufgebaut und auch leichter stellt er die kleinere Variante des Fenrir dar und soll vor allem durch ein gutes Preis-/Leistungs-Verhältnis punkten. Ob dies gelingt, erfahrt ihr auf den folgenden Seiten.

Titan Fenrir HATI CPU Cooler Review
     Wed, Feb 16 2011 | 6:48P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although the Fenrir HATI by Titan is a cut down version of their famous Fenrir EVO CPU Cooler in both size and price their performance levels are not worlds apart as one would think.

SilverStone Air Penetrator SST-AP121-L review
     Sun, Feb 06 2011 | 12:03P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are less than half way through January, and we are already off to a great start with two new reviews for the year. To ramp things up in the next twelve months, we will try something new that we have not done before. In the past half decade or so, we have reviewed many different types of technology products. One of these products include the case fans. Interestingly, if you noticed it or not, all of these products previously reviewed were from the same company. Now Noctua is an excellent manufacturer of low noise cooling solutions. This fact is attested to with awards given to virtually every Noctua product we have ever evaluated. However, this time around, we will have something from a highly reputable manufacturer of everything from chassis to power supplies instead, and it is not Noctua. That company in question is no other than SilverStone, and they will be the second company to just send us case fans for evaluation (We have reviewed their cases and power supplies in the past). To be honest, at first I was a bit skeptical, because I did not really think SilverStone was really serious about making anything other than the run-of-the-mill case fan. But regardless of what I thought, I could not resist my interest in what this performance parts manufacturer had for us in store. So today, we have the SilverStone Air Penetrator SST-AP121-L for review, which is a 120mm fan with fancy LEDs. Let's see how this fan stacks up against the best in the industry.

Arctic Cooling Accelero GTX Pro Review
     Fri, Feb 04 2011 | 3:23P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Arctic Cooling pioneered the dual slot blower fan external exhaust heatsink design, and has pushed forward into dual and triple fan extreme cooling solutions. Will their Accelero Xtreme give new life to a GTX 275, staving off that upgrade payment for a few more months?"

Xigmatek Aegir SD128264 CPU Cooler
     Thu, Feb 03 2011 | 12:06A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has been awhile since we last saw any Xigmatek products surface from the pages of Pro-Clockers, but that changed a few days ago when we received a hefty box from them. The first item is the biggest and baddest of those in the box, and what we will be bringing you today: the Aegir SD128264 (to make it easy, we'll just call it Aegir). This new cooler utilizes Xigmatek's latest update to the direct touch technology which they are calling Dual Layer H.D.T. The sheer size when combined with this new technology should make the Aegir one cooler not to be reckoned with. Lets take a look at this thing and see if it is lived up to our hype!

Evercool HPL-815 Low Profile Heatsink Review
     Tue, Feb 01 2011 | 4:02P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Standing just 45mm tall, the Evercool HPL-815 is a low profile heatsink suited for use in 2U thick computer cases. It's equipped with a top mounted 80x80x15mm PWM fan that rotates at speeds of 4000-1000RPM, exhausting air downwards into a 23mm tall array of quilted aluminum fins. In fact, of all the sub-60mm low profile heatsinks Frostytech has tested the HPL-815 ranks 7°C cooler (at 4000RPM fan speed) than the next best thermal solution. "

Noctua NH-C14
     Mon, Jan 31 2011 | 4:46P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mit dem NH-D14 stellte Noctua im 2009 einen neuen Tower-Kühler vor, welcher sich auf Anhieb ganz oben in den Charts platzieren konnte. Ende des letzten Jahres folgte auch im Top-Flow-Segment ein neuer Kühler, welcher den altgedienten NH-C12P ablöste. Mit zwei 140-mm-Lüftern soll der Kühler an die Erfolgsgeschichte der Kühler aus eigenem Hause anknüpfen und bietet zudem auch noch die Möglichkeit sich zwischen drei verschiedenen "Betriebs-Modi" zu entscheiden. Etwas verspätet, aber dafür mit einem umfangreichen Testparcour sowohl mit 120-, als auch mit 140-mm-Lüftern, präsentieren wir euch nun unser Review des Noctua NH-C14. Wie sich dieser schlägt, erfahrt ihr auf den folgenden Seiten.

Bottom line, if you're in need of a sub-60mm tall low profile heatsink for a 2U sized PC chassis, the Evercool HPL-815 heatsink will do the job suitably at full fan speed. In fact, of all the sub-60mm low profile heatsinks Frostytech has tested the HPL-815 ranks 7°C cooler (at 4000RPM fan speed) than the next best thermal solution.

Zalman CNPS5X-SZ Heatsink Review
     Tue, Jan 25 2011 | 2:21P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

Zalman's CNPS5X-SZ heatsink is an updated, vertical interpretation of a 2006-era heatsink Zalman released under the CNPS8000 nomenclature. Like its forefather, the CNPS5X-SZ fills the role of a lower profile, light weight cooler that's ideally suited to sub-95W TDP processors. It's stacked aluminum fins are connected by three 6mm diameter copper heatpipes to a small aluminum base block with a thin bit of copper covering the otherwise exposed heatpipes. A single 90mm PWM fan spins at 2800-1400RPM to cool this modified tower heatsink.

Cooler Master Turbine Master Case Fan - Airport this is Ground Control
     Wed, Jan 19 2011 | 5:41P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You can never have enough enclosure fans, especially if the enclosure is situated on the floor and plays the role of the perfect dust magnet. On the other hand, bad coolers are only likely to present an additional dust accumulation location, and if they aren’t particularly quiet either, you’re in for a treat. Fortunately, Cooler Master’s more expensive models are nothing of the sort, and one of those is Turbine Master...

Master Mach 0.8 Review - the 800RPM Turbine
     Wed, Jan 19 2011 | 5:39P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Reviewing graphics cards, mechanical keyboards, monitors and all sorts of other fancy products can be fun, but sometimes we have to break it down to basics and look at something a little more humble; case in point, this fan. However, don't get too downhearted, it's still nerdy as hell and packed with "features", for a fan at least.

Zalman Z9 Plus Case Review
     Wed, Jan 12 2011 | 11:30A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"After examining the Z9 Plus chassis, I was very pleased to see that Zalman has addressed the vast majority of the issues I had with the Z7 series. Not only has Zalman improved cooling performance while still keeping noise in the acceptable range, they've given the interior a matching black finish for a uniform look, updated the aesthetics and added support for a couple of SSDs as well."

Xigmatek S128264 Aegir Stacked Heatpipe Heatsink Reviewed on Frostytech.com
     Mon, Jan 10 2011 | 12:34P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink

Xigmatek continues the new trend of 'heatpipe stacking' with its latest heatsink, the SD128264 Aegir. The Aegir is an exposed heatpipe base tower heatsink made to accommodate one or two 120mm fans. A single 120mm 2200-1000RPM PWM fan is supplied with it, and judging by the excellent thermal test results there's really no need for a second... unless you're planning on operating both fans at the slowest possible speeds.

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.
