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…


Blacknoise NB-eLoop B14-PS and B14-3 140mm fans

Introduction Blacknoise is a company I have worked with for a while now, with them having sponsored the fans for my 120 and 140mm size radiator tests. I have also reviewed some of their fans before, including some of the 120mm eLoop fans. So when I learned they had 140mm eLoop fans ready I immediately…


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…


Noctua NF-A14 FLX 140mm fan

Introduction I have been hearing very good things about the NF-A14 for what seems like ages now, second only to the NF-F12. There is no denying that Noctua makes some very good air coolers and fans for that application, but the NF-F12 fell short on more air flow restrictive scenarios such as a radiator. Thanks…


EK Vardar F1-140 140mm fan

Introduction When I first got my hands on a pre-production model of the Vardar F3-140ER over two months ago, all I wanted to know was when would it be out for retail sale and how much it would cost. It was definitely a long wait, but they are finally released and out for retail purchase…


Noctua NF-P14s Redux-1200 PWM 140mm fan

Introduction Time for some Noctua love in the 140mm fan department. Their 120mm fans we saw before, especially the NF-S12A FLX and NF-F12 IPPC 2000 PWM, were generally good performers but they all came at a price that didn’t make them so easy to recommend. Thanks to Hank from Performance PCs, let’s see if the…


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. Today then we take a look at the 140mm version…
