Frostytech Test Report - Coolage Frozen Orb Z924 HDC Heatsink
     Sun, Jan 11 2009 | 5:21P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com Latest Frostytech heatsink review is up, this time the results are..... not what you'd expect.

"Coolage's Frozen Orb Z924 HDC heatsink makes use of the trendy "heatpipe direct contact" technique, except this time we're looking at a modified thermal design Coolage originally manufactured with a copper base plate. That heatsink was the Freezer Orb F0-Z924AL. Can a heatsink be retooled into an effective exposed heatpipe base CPU cooler if it wasn't originally designed as such? That's just one of the questions Frostytech will seek to answer in this review."

Gelid Solutions Silent Spirit Heatsink Reviewed on Frostytech
     Mon, Dec 29 2008 | 2:45A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com Frostytech review the new Gelid Silent Spirit heatsink and tell you straight up wether it's worth getting, or if there's a better option.

"If you know how quietly Arctic Cooling's past thermal solutions ran and how well they performed, I'm sure you're as interested as Frostytech is to see how Gelid's first low noise heatsink stacks up. After all, it's no small feat to construct a well performing low noise thermal solution for today's crop of multi-core Intel and AMD processors!"

Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 LP Low Profile Heatsink Reviewed on Frosty
     Sun, Dec 28 2008 | 11:17P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.frostytech.com

Frostytech is back with a new low profile heatsink from Arctic Cooling for super slim and super compact Intel PC's - the Freezer 7 LP.

"The Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 LP is a lightweight Intel socket 775 heatsink made specifically for slim-line and book-sized PC cases. It stands less than 50mm high, weighs just 260 grams and operates very quietly. Although it's 80mm 600-2000RPM PWM fan is underpowered for high temperature Intel processors, for the newer generation of sub-85W CPUs, the Freezer 7 LP is more than satisfactory. The heatsink is officially rated for heat loads up to a maximum 95W.... we'll still throw 150W at it for fun!"

Titan Cool Idol TTC-NK75TZ Heatsink Reviewed on Frostytech
     Mon, Nov 10 2008 | 12:22A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.frostytech.com

Frostytech tests the new Titan Cool Idol heatsink in this review.

"Titan's Cool Idol heatsink is made from three separate aluminum fin sections joined to a copper base by six 6mm diameter copper heatpipes. The heatsink uses one 120mm PWM fan mounted on vibration absorbing rubber posts that is capable of spinning from 800-2200RPM. The use of six heatpipes and three aluminum fin sections is fairly unique, but at 850 grams in weight the Cool Idol is seriously under supported."

Frostytech Tests the Evercool Transformer 6 heatsink - FIRST LOOK
     Tue, Oct 14 2008 | 4:31A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.frostytech.com

I don't know what I'd do without Frostytech dishing out such great advice on which heatsinks to avoid, and which heatsinks are killer cool.... New from Frostytech is this review of the Evercool Transformer 6!

"Evercool has built the Transformer 6 out of three individual aluminum cooling fin segments, toped by a glistening silver 120mm fan mounted on vibration absorbing rubber posts. The arrangement of the six heatpipes is fairly unique, but more on that in a moment."

Frostytech tests the nPowerTek NPH-775-140HC Heatsink
     Mon, Sep 08 2008 | 4:14A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.frostytech.com Frostytech has a new heatsink review up, grab a peek here.

"The first thing you'll notice when looking at this Intel cooler is that NPowertek NPH-775-140HC looks very much like Intel's retail box thermal solution. The NPH-775-140HC is rated for heat loads up to 130W, however we'd suggested keeping things to energy efficient Intel CPUs that have a sub-95W TDP rating."

Xigmatek HDT-S1284EE Heatsink Review
     Wed, Sep 03 2008 | 3:08A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com
You can't buy this heatsink yet, but when the new Xigmatek HDT-S1284EE hits store shelves, you're gonna have to know whether you can afford not to have it. It's good, according to Frostytech.

"The Xigmatek HDT-S1284EE heatsink is an extension of the Achilles model, built on the same great frame but with a new fan that offers identical performance and just about the same noise values. At full tilt the HDT-1284EE barely purrs at 44.2dBA, while the Achilles hums away at 42.7dBA. The Xigmatek HDT-S1284EE heatsink features an "exposed heatpipe base" that stacks up very well in the competitive world of AMD and Intel processor cooling."

Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com Frostytech test a Coolermaster heatsink called the GeminII S and give their straight up verdict.

"In this review Frostytech is evaluating the Coolermaster GeminII S - a low height, lower noise, down-exhaust heatsink for Intel socket 775 and AMD socket 754/939/940/AM2+ processors. Coolermaster's GeminII S heatsink stands just 88mm tall and ships with a 120mm fan mounted to its frame. An extra set of brackets allow that fan to be replaced with two 92mm or 80mm fans."

     Sat, Jul 19 2008 | 6:25P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com Is the Xigmatek Achilles S1284 heatsink, with its special "exposed heatpipe base" worth getting? According to Forstytech the short answer is "yes." Read on to find out just how well the Achilles S1284 stacks up in the competitive world of AMD and Intel processor cooling!

"Xigmatek's Achilles S1284 heatsink is equipped with rubber vibration absorbing fan posts, a 120mm PWM fan that scales in speed from 800-1500RPM and a couple white LEDs for dramatic effect. The 660gram S1284 heatsink is compatible with socket 775 Intel Core 2 Duo/Quad CPUs, and all socket 754/939/940/AM2 AMD Athlon64/Phenom processors."

Frostytech Test the new Akasa AK-975Cu Intel 2U Heatsink
     Sun, Jul 15 2007 | 3:22A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PCSTATS.com Frostytech have a new heatsink review for us today - have a look at the Akasa AK-975Cu cooler.

"The Akasa AK-975Cu is a compact little Intel socket 775 heatsink that stands no more than 77mm tall. It comes with a 70mm PWM fan that varies in speed from 1000-3500RPM, and a convenient patch of pre-applied thermal compound on its base. The cooler is based on a copper block with aluminum fins and a pair of copper heatpipes to help distribute the heat to stubby cooling fins. All joints are soldered to lower thermal resistance.

The heatsink is compatible with socket 775 Intel Pentium D/4 and Core 2 Duo CPUs, specifically in a 2U rack mountable chassis environment. If you recall, servers and other rack mounted enclosures are packaged in boxes that conform to the 1U, 2U, 3U etc. sizes. Each Unit of space is equivalent to 1.75" (44mm)."

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.
