System Cooling

AMD has very much upped its game with the latest generation of Ryzen processors. The Ryzen 2700X comes complete with a snazzy looking cooler that has served us well on our test bench, but what happens when you put it inside a hot case with a hot video card and put the screws to it in terms of GHz and wattage on our 4GHz Ryzen testing rig?

coolermaster-masterair-ma621pBy Kyle Bennett @ HardOCP

The AMD Ryzen Threadripper is a beast when it comes to overclocking and cooling. Cooler Master steps into the ring with the first Threadripper-specific air cooler that we have come across. We have put it through the paces here on our highly overclocked and overvolted 1950X. Does the MasterAir MA621P have what it takes?

arctic-liquid-freezer-120-w-nzxt-kraken-g12By Josh Jackson @ Pure Overclock

Typically, you don’t just add a CLC to a graphics card, but NZXT designed the Kraken G12 bracket for just the occasion. Of course you need a compatible CLC in order to make it work, and that’s where Arctic comes to play. I’ve looked into finding what I thought would be the best CLC for the purpose of using on a GPU, and my research led me to choosing the Liquid Freezer 120. It was pure speculation at the time, but the combination of two included fans, an extra thick radiator, and a convenient 120mm size seemed like the perfect fit.

nzxt-kraken-x72-aioBy Hilbert Hagedoorn @ Guru3D

NZXT super-sized their Kraken series liquid coolers, meet the x72 for cases with 360 mm radiator mounts. This new cooler is compatible with CAM software. This allows you to program, customize and monitor this all-in-one liquid cooling solution for your processor. Armed with three 120mm PWM fans and a nice radiator to go with it, the performance is really good, next to being extremely silent, NZXT probably has got the best-LED lighting system implementation in the industry as well.

be-quiet-dark-rock-pro-4By Parm Mann @ HEXUS

Our buying advice for a high-end CPU cooler is usually pretty straight forward. Those wanting to take the liquid route can choose from numerous all-in-one solutions that have plenty in common, while those who prefer an air cooler should probably choose a Noctua.

That’s the general line of thinking, but there is a caveat in that Noctua’s beige-and-brown colour scheme isn’t for everyone, so where do you turn if you need an ultra-high-end air cooler that performs admirably while also looking the part? The answer, it seems, is the be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4.

Raijintek are relatively new to the party, founded in 2013, but with their German design and Taiwanese manufacture, they promise quality at an affordable price. How does the Orcus 240 RGB CPU Cooler fare in our tests?

enermax-liqfusion-240-aioBy Richard Gouge @ HardOCP

The new Enermax LiqFusion is an All-in-One liquid CPU cooler packed with unique features and desirable options. It has an exclusive RGB-sync waterblock, flow indicator, ceramic bearing pump, as well as a serviceable design, but how well does it cool our highly overclocked Ryzen test system?

deepcool-mf120-frameless-wifi-rgb-fanBy Hilbert Hagedoorn @ Guru3D

In this quick test, we briefly peek at the new MF120 Frameless WIFI RGB series fans from DeepCool, the fans are not just unique looking with an aluminum base finish, the RGB LED strip can be controlled over WIFI with your smartphone as well. Over at Computex 2017, DeepCool was showing a lot of stuff, including this fairly intricate fan set, nothing like you’ve seen before. They are introducing a frameless fan with two linear RGB strips that are controlled with a module which you can operate over WIFI with your smartphone. I just received a set to be used for a chassis build, and quickly wanted to show the kit to you.

EKWB is a Slovenian manufacturer of high performance water cooling parts and accessories designed to meet the needs of the most discerning PC enthusiasts. EK gets their name from the initials of their founder, Edvard Konig, who began designing and manufacturing water blocks back in the late 1990’s, eventually producing and manufacturing his first line of waterblocks in 2003.

corsair-h115i-pro-h150i-pro-cpu-coolersThe right way to mess with success

By Jeff Kampman @ The Tech Report

Corsair has arguably been the company most responsible for ushering in the closed-loop liquid-cooled era of enthusiast PC hardware. The H60, H80, and H100, introduced in 2011, likely marked the crossover point where an all-in-one liquid cooler became an enduring and attainable option for enthusiasts versus a monster tower-style air cooler. The company later expanded its lineup with the H105, H110, and a variety of Corsair Link-compatible i-series versions of those coolers, and it sourced those products from Asetek (in GTX guises) and CoolIT Systems (with the GT tag line) alike. I’ve long used versions of these coolers on my personal systems and test benches alike thanks to their easy-to-use mounting systems, low stress on motherboards, and high performance. In light of that storied history, Corsair’s H115i Pro and H150i Pro coolers have a lot riding on their shoulders. The 280-mm H115i Pro is an evolution of Corsair’s existing H110i GTX, while the H150i Pro is the company’s first 360-mm closed-loop cooler ever.
