Alphacool Susurro 120mm fan

Introduction Susurro is Spanish for “whisper” or “rustling noise”. Alphacool has chosen a nice name here for a fan but has thus also set up an expectation. The Coolmove 2 fans we saw earlier were fairly impressive- especially for the money- and now Alphacool has this to cover the more premium market of fans. Thanks to Pascal…


Swiftech Helix120-PWM 120mm fan

Introduction Swiftech has been around for what seems like ages now, and are one of the legitimate PC watercooling founder brands. More recently, their AIOs and pumps have offered things that are great bangs for the buck, and seem to be sold out more often than not. One such side result of this is that…


be quiet! Silent Wings 2 140mm PWM fan

Introduction The very first be quiet! product I had tested out was the Silent Wings 2 120mm PWM fan (here) and since then everything from them has shown to have a big emphasis on noise- not surprising given the product name- and excellent build quality.

DarkSide Gentle Typhoon Black Edition 2150rpm 120mm fan

Introduction I think the words “Gentle Typhoon” is enough of an introduction here for most readers. But for those who haven’t, a simple search for “Scythe Gentle Typhoon” will tell a story- a fan series manufactured by Nidec Servo and then brought to the retail market by Scythe for years and was regarded as the best…


be quiet! Shadow Rock LP CPU cooler

Introduction Along with the Dark Rock TF (review here), be quiet! was kind enough to also send the Shadow Rock LP cooler. This, part of their Shadow Rock series, is a mid range cooler that is in the top-bottom flow style as well but is more affordable and offers slightly less cooling. It also has…
