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

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.

Thermalright Silver Arrow Heatsink Reviewed on Frostytech
     Mon, Jan 10 2011 | 12:33P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

"The Thermalright Silver Arrow is a dual tower, dual 140mm fan heatsink for performance and lower noise Intel / AMD processor cooling. It's constructed around four 8mm diameter sintered metal wick copper heatpipes and thin, multi-winglet nickel plated aluminum fins."

Zalman CNPS9900 Max Heatsink Reviewed on Frostytech
     Mon, Jan 10 2011 | 12:32P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

www.frostytech.com

"Zalman's CNPS9900 Max is built with better heat conducting 'composite heatpipes,' a more robust mounting system, a larger copper base plate that is machined flat and a 130mm diameter fan. The face lift and design revisions aren't cosmetic, the CNPS9900 Max heatsink performs much better than its forerunner and offers very good low noise cooling too. Like most Zalman heatsinks, the CNPS9900 Max is based off entirely original design concepts; two radial fin arrays surrounding an inset 130mm PWM fan that draws air past one set of cooling fins before exhausting it through the second."

Noctua NH-C14 Lower Noise Heatsink Reviewed on Frostytech
     Mon, Jan 10 2011 | 12:31P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

"The Noctua NH-C14 is a big heatsink for sure, but remarkably by orienting the fans and aluminum fin stack in a top-down direction, Noctua keep the heatsinks' height to just 130mm. That's a far cry more compact than your typical 160mm tall tower heatsink, but that hasn't made the NH-C14 into a slouch. Where Frostytech's Intel LGA775/1156 thermal test platform is concerned, the Noctua NH-C14 heatsink leads the Top 5 Heatsinks Chart. The competition is a little stiffer on the AMD front with the NH-C14 trailing the front runner by about 2.2°C."

Sunbeamtech Twister 120 Heatsink Review
     Tue, Jan 04 2011 | 1:29P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

Sunbeamtech's Twister 120 heatsink is built around three 8mm diameter copper heatpipes which are exposed at the base. The heatpipes pass through the raw aluminum fins (which have a dimpled surface texture for added measure) in a chevron shape, so fan orientation is printed on the top of the heatsink. Standing 154mm tall, the Twister heatsink weighs 631 grams and ships with two 120mm fans that operate at speeds of 2000-1000RPM.

EKL Alpenfohn GrossClockner 2010 Edition Heatsink Review
     Sun, Jan 02 2011 | 12:34A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

The EKL Alpenfohn Groß Clock'ner 2010 heatsink on the test bench today is a heatpipe direct contact cooler - meaning the heatpipes are exposed at the base. The heatsink stands 155mm tall, is 125mm across, 105mm deep and weighs upwards of 718grams. Simple wire clips are used to hold a single 120mm fan in position, the non-PWM fan rotates at a fixed 1200 RPM. The heatsink is compatible with Intel socket 775/115/1156/1366 processors and AMD socket AM2/AM3 CPUs.

Zalman ZM-MFC1 Combo 5-Channel Fan Controller Review
     Sat, Jan 01 2011 | 11:51P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

The Zalman ZM-MFC1 combo fan controller offers some flexibility towards semi-automatic fan management in a sleek black aluminum 5.25" bay. It accommodates one PWM fan and four 3-pin fans, enabling users to independently control the speed of each five channels with a dial rheostat. Carefully placed three-colour LEDs indicate the fan speed (low/med/high) at a glance.

Akasa Revo Loop Thermosyphon Heatsink Review
     Sat, Jan 01 2011 | 8:05A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

Akasa's Revo heatsink is known as a Loop Thermosyphon Cooler; it functions along the same lines as a heatpipe but relies on gravity instead of capillary forces to return its 'working fluid' back to the hot side. The working fluid is what conducts heat absorbed by the heatsink, from the processor to the heat exchanger, where forced air passing over cooling fins removes it to the surrounding environment. Unlike heatpipes which typically use water under a slight vacuum for working fluid, the Revo heatsink is slightly pressurized with a fluorocarbon called R134a.

Nexus VCT-9000 Heatsink Review
     Mon, Dec 13 2010 | 3:03A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.frostytech.com

Frostytech is not going to waste your time by leaving the most important information till the very end of this review - the Nexus VCT-9000 heatsink is an interesting looking thermal solution, but it fails completely in its execution. Nexus have manufactured the VCT-9000 heatsink poorly, resulting in uneven exposed heatpipes that may not contact the processor properly. The heatsink does not perform very well as a result, so the rest is pretty much moot.

Titan Hati TTC-NC15TZ Heatsink Reviewed on Frostytech.com
     Sun, Dec 12 2010 | 11:46P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.frostytech.com

In this review Frostytech is testing Titan's new Hati TTC-NC15TZ exposed heatpipe base CPU cooler. The TTC-NC15TZ is capable of very good performance results with the supplied 120mm PWM fan operating at full speed, however that trend quickly changes direction once fan speed is brought down for quieter operation...

Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 Heatsink Reviewed on Frostytech.com
     Sun, Dec 12 2010 | 5:05P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.frostytech.com

"Rated for heat loads of up to 200W according to the manufacturer, the Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 is a relatively compact sub-130mm tall heatsink. It's 92mm fan utilizes fluid dynamic bearings and a "low noise impeller" design, so once again Arctic Cooling is focusing on quiet... quiet... quiet... The Freezer 13 mostly delivers on the noise front but it's compact design and 92mm diameter - not 120mm diameter - fan limit thermal performance to the 'average' region according to Frostytech's reference charts, even where heatsinks of an identical height are explicitly compared. Computer enthusiasts with compact PC cases will probably like the Freezer 13 though."

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.
