Silverstone AR07 CPU Cooler

Navigate to: Unboxing and Overview Installation Performance Testing Conclusion Introduction The last CPU cooler reviewed here was way back in January with the Silverstone AR08, and it is way past time to cover some more. Indeed, the subject of today’s review came along with the AR08 itself but I had little time to wrap up…


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…


Fractal Design Venturi HP-12 120mm PWM Fan

Navigate to: Unboxing and Overview Performance Testing Conclusion Introduction There is not much more to add as an introduction on top of what I mentioned in my review of the Fractal Design Venturi HP-14 fan, aside from that 120 mm fans are still more popular in the PC DIY industry and my inbox still gets a…


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…


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…


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…


Silverstone FM181 180mm fan

Introduction Here we are then- the 5th and final of the 180mm fans at my current disposal. As much as the SST-AP182 impressed me, it was a power hog and required a dedicated knob controller to keep under, well, control. It also wasn’t really radiator optimized. The FM181 on the other hand was built with…


Silverstone AP182 180mm fan

Introduction “The power of house fan in your PC” is what you read on the packaging. I scoffed at it the first time I saw it- never again though. Silverstone, as we saw with the FW181, has a lot more incentive to develop 180mm fans than most others owing to the unique nature of some…
