Hell froze over, Noctua is working on a liquid cooler. It’s very special

Now that’s news we didn’t expect from Computex 2024: Noctua, possibly the most famous coolers and fans company, has presented a liquid cooler. What’s unusual is that Noctua is focused on silent operation (which liquid cooler pumps tend to have a problem with) and reliability, and has insisted on not making any AIO liquid coolers, until now. Noctua’s liquid cooler, however, takes a different route than usual. Read more “Hell froze over, Noctua is working on a liquid cooler. It’s very special” »

ID-Cooling has a super cheap 360 mm AIO cooler

While the vast majority of high-performance AIO coolers are priced well above the most powerful tower coolers, ID-Cooling goes in the opposite direction. Their liquid cooler, referred to as the FX360 Pro, is cheaper and at the same time on the outside there is no indication that it shouldn’t have a high TDP. The manufacturer claims 350W, which are backed by a large radiator, what seems to be a powerful pump, and the fans don’t look bad either. Read more “ID-Cooling has a super cheap 360 mm AIO cooler” »

Noctua: New 140 mm fans to premiere on a CPU cooler

Noctua’s long-awaited next-gen fans in the 140mm format have experienced a setback in their planned release, but they also haven’t. They have indeed been delayed from the second to third quarter of 2024 in terms of standalone availability, but they should be out soon together with the cooler that replaces the NH-D15 at the top of the lineup. In addition, it’s also been somewhat declassified which of the “older” projects is nearing completion. Read more “Noctua: New 140 mm fans to premiere on a CPU cooler” »

Endorfy Fera 5 Black – Bestseller on the way to darkness

Today marks the launch of a new version of the popular Endorfy Fera 5 cooler, with the Black attribute. The name suggests that this cooler has a matte black finish, which will be appreciated especially by fans of minimalist PC builds. Of course, it will have to be tested whether this finish has a negative effect on cooling efficiency or whether there is any deterioration in acoustics. So let’s venture into the dark future of Endorfy coolers together. Read more “Endorfy Fera 5 Black – Bestseller on the way to darkness” »

Display on a CPU cooler: DeepCool AK620 Digital preview

For coolers (but also cases) with the Digital attribute, DeepCool creates a built-in display. Its implementation is minimalist in spirit, doesn’t increase the price significantly, and can be considered useful. With regard to monitoring CPU temperatures and load intensity, it’s a thematic value added, which we’ll now look at in the context of the powerful AK620 (Digital) dual-tower cooler.

EK-Nucleus CR360 Lux White – Simply gorgeous liquid cooler

I probably don’t need to introduce EK Water Blocks here. It produces high-end components for water loops and for the last few years it has been using its experience in this field in designing AIO coolers as well. The EK-Nucleus CR360 Lux represents the top of the current range and will impress you above all with its clean and elegant design. With good test results, one can expect an attractive ratio of price, quality and efficiency, considering its price. Read more “EK-Nucleus CR360 Lux White – Simply gorgeous liquid cooler” »

Now in black… Noctua’s shortest high-performance cooler

For users who don’t sympathize with Noctua’s traditional brown and beige color scheme, the NH-D12L cooler is now out in chromax.black. The cooler differs from most competing models by its lower profile (while still having plenty of fins). And the NH-D12L chromax.black is also one of the few dual-tower CPU coolers which never collide with memory modules on the motherboard when oriented vertically.

Lower price high-end. DeepCool releases the Assassin 4S cooler

Minus one fan makes the Assassin 4S 20 EUR cheaper than the Assassin IV it’s based on. The heatsink seems to be the same, and the only difference is the number of fans – one instead of two. The cooling performance will most certainly be lower, but we expect that its drop won’t be as significant as the amount of money that you can save with this cheaper model. In addition, there’s also wider compatibility. Read more “Lower price high-end. DeepCool releases the Assassin 4S cooler” »

Release of Noctua’s 140mm next-gen fans sticks to schedule

The title couldn’t fit a “despite complications with the frame”. Even though Noctua figured out that the fan blades could collide under adverse circumstances due to deformation of the frame in a more advanced stage of prototyping, it seems that the fix for this inconvenience didn’t take too long. We’re again at the point where it looks like Noctua’s 140mm LCP fans are right outside the doors of the retail market. Read more “Release of Noctua’s 140mm next-gen fans sticks to schedule” »

Arctic Freezer 36 A-RGB – In the spirit of bold innovation

The German company Arctic celebrates 23 years of its founding this year and to mark the occasion, new Liquid Freezer III AIO coolers were recently introduced. Today also sees the launch of new Arctic Freezer 36 air coolers. These coolers come with a number of bold innovations and one of them has led to some changes to the format of today’s review.

PCCooler CPS RZ620 – Successful entry to the big leagues

Today’s review will introduce you to the CPS RZ620 cooler from the Asian company PCCooler, which is the first product of this company that is about to hit the European market. This cooler falls into the premium class and thus should offer high cooling efficiency. However, it should be available at a relatively low price and thus offer an interesting price-performance ratio. I am therefore curious to see how it performs in stress tests.

New Liquid Freezer (III): Better contact and compressor from a plane

Arctic says that historically, it can’t recall a product receiving more user interest right out of the gate, just after release, than the Liquid Freezer III coolers. But no wonder. In addition to efficient fans, they bring several features to enhance cooling performance. The latter is not only high, but also very affordable. Arctic has put the coolers on sale with a rather large, still ongoing discount. A 360-millimeter variant for under 80 euros?

Mystique 360: The first of next-gen DeepCool AIOs

In a move marked by broader changes, DeepCool is releasing the Mystique line of liquid coolers. Of the main things that affect cooling efficiency, the design of the pump, coldplate, and fans have all been affected. The attractiveness is also supposed to be enhanced by the addition of a brightly colored display for monitoring CPU activity, for example. Price-wise, Mystique coolers are among the cheaper ones when compared to similarly equipped competitors. Read more “Mystique 360: The first of next-gen DeepCool AIOs” »

BeQuiet! Dark Rock Elite – The new king of coolers?

I will start this year’s cooler tests with a real treat. I’ve prepared a review of the Dark Rock Elite cooler, the absolute top of BeQuiet!’s range. This is a premium cooler offering very high performance at low noise levels thanks to its sophisticated design in combination with high-end fans. I’m very curious to see how it performs compared to the high-end coolers I’ve had the opportunity to test over the past year. Read more “BeQuiet! Dark Rock Elite – The new king of coolers?” »

A gaming cooler? DeepCool AK620 Zero Dark Zoria in details

DeepCool has modified its successful AK620 Zero Dark cooler in line with the theme of Zoria: Age of Shattering. Thus, we can legitimately talk about a gaming cooler, as long as this designation refers to the visual design. It is literally a work of art, and one of the goals was to make sure that the cooling performance was not degraded in any way after this intervention. It was to remain at the level of the original design, so top-notch. Read more “A gaming cooler? DeepCool AK620 Zero Dark Zoria in details” »
