Silverstone TD03-E CPU Cooler

Navigate to: Unboxing and Overview Installation Performance Testing Conclusion Introduction The CPU liquid cooling market is often described with the words Corsair, Asetek, CoolIT, NZXT etc about with a good majority of people often misunderstanding how the market works. Asetek, while definitely big in the market, is not the only player and everyone does not…


Cryorig H7 CPU Cooler

Navigate to: Unboxing and Overview Installation Performance Testing Conclusion Introduction When Cryorig first mentioned the H7 to me last year, I was pretty excited. Between this, the be quiet! Pure Rock we saw earlier and even the Silverstone AR02, there were some really promising options for good bang for the buck CPU coolers. 2/3 did…


be quiet! Pure Rock CPU cooler

Navigate to: Unboxing and Overview, Installation, Performance Testing, Conclusion Introduction One of the first things a PC enthusiast does after purchasing a CPU is to use the stock heatsink, if provided, to ensure the product is working before promptly replacing it. While AMD seems to have put some effort in negating this by developing a vastly improved stock cooler…


Corsair Hydro H5 SF CPU Cooler

Navigate to: Unboxing and Overview Installation Testing and Results Conclusion Introduction When Corsair first showed off their Bulldog system at Computex last year, the chassis deservedly took most of the attention. But in order to make that system a reality, they also had to introduce 2 new items- an SFX PSU and a blower style…


EK Predator 240mm AIO CPU Cooler

Introduction This has been a long time in the making. The product itself, and the review too. I was present in person at Quakecon 2015 when EK Waterblocks announced the Predator series of AIO coolers, and I actually had my sample from EK arrive over 4 months ago. Hectic schedules, and a product recall later…

be quiet! Dark Rock TF CPU cooler

Introduction I was (and still am) very impressed by the be quiet! Silent Wings 2 120mm fan that I had tested out in late January this year. I then began to look more into the company and realized how big they were- especially in Germany and west Europe. I had let them about the fan…


Cryorig R1 Ultimate CPU cooler

Introduction We have already seen Cryorig products here before, with the QF120 fans and the C1 cooler leaving behind a favorable tone for the company overall. As with any company that makes air coolers for CPUs, they have a massive dual tower flagship as well. We now get to see the very best (for now…


Cryorig C1 CPU cooler

Introduction To go along with the QF120 Performance 120mm fan, Cryorig had sent along 3 CPU coolers as well. I figured since I just tested out the Cooler Master GeminII S524 Ver. 2 top-down CPU cooler, I should begin with Cryorig’s own top-down cooler as well. This cooler is easily the least tall air cooler…


Cooler Master GeminII S524 Ver. 2

Introduction Following up with my review of the CM Hyper 612 Ver. 2 CPU cooler, it is now time to take a look at another revised cooler- this time from the GeminII series. This is my first top-down cooler and it definitely is different from the usual AIOs or tower style air coolers. For one,…
