fractal-design-celsius-s36-prismaBy Hilbert Hagedoorn @ Guru3D

We test and review the Fractal Design Celsius+ series, an All-in-One Liquid cooling kit that is decent in performance with an up-to 360mm radiator and with a choice of Prisma ARGB fans or Dynamic X2 (no-RGB) fans. These liquid cooling kits are pre-fitted with a single loop and ready to install straight out of the box. Armed with pretty nice looks, sleeved tubing Fractal Design offers a competitive model in the massive LCS kit arena.

alphacool-eisbaer-aurora-240-digital-rgb-aio-coolerBy Mike Sanders @ eteknix

Alphacool is one of the biggest and best-known names in system cooling and with good reason. Being well-reputed for their AIO cooling solutions and custom loop systems, they’re one of the most obvious choices if you’re planning to go down that road with your system. They are, without a doubt, one of the biggest market leaders!

With the launch of the brand new Eisbaer Aurora, however, this is certainly one of their most interesting designs I think I’ve ever encountered. That’s interesting in a good way, just in case you couldn’t tell.

corsair-hydro-x-series-water-cooling-gearBy Gavin Bonshor @ AnandTech

During Computex 2019, Corsair unveiled its new Hydro X series – a new range of water cooling hardware that marks its first entry into custom water cooling market. The range offers CPU blocks for multiple sockets, multiple fittings, tubing types, and a pump/reservoir combo, allowing users can build a high-performance system with nearly all Corsair branded parts. We used the Corsair Hydro X series in our ASRock X570 Aqua review and built a full system to showcase what Corsair is offering, and here is a build log of that system.

corsair-a500-dual-fan-cpu-coolerBy Peter Donnell @ Eteknix

When you think of PC cooling, many of you will immediately think of both Corsair and an AIO cooler. You would be right to do so, they’re one of the biggest brands out there, and their AIO coolers are regarded as many of the best. Plus, their prices are pretty competitive, we know the performance is great, and they look good. So, what is Corsair doing making an air cooler? Well, this isn’t the first time. They did it a few years back with some budget air coolers, and well, they were a bit crap. Corsair is a much more premium brand these days, and the new A500 looks set to match their portfolio.

arctic-liquid-freezer-ii-280-liquid-coolerBy Krzysztof Hukalowicz @ Guru3D

Today, we are reviewing an AIO cooler from Arctic: the LIQUID FREEZER II 280. The series has been introduced on the 9th of December this year. Arctic is no “newbie” in the AIO segment of the market. It’s already been four years since they announced the Liquid Freezer I series. This time around, there’s no RGB either, and the system is still not expandable (similarly to most of the solutions on the market today), unlike the Alphacool Eisbaer 280 Extreme or Swiftech H240 X3 that we reviewed this year.

silverstone-permafrost-pf240-liquid-coolerBy Krzysztof Hukalowicz @ Guru3D

Today, we are reviewing an AIO cooler from Silverstone: the PERMAFROST PF240. Silverstone is not entirely a newcomer in the AIO segment of the market. In the past, they introduced the Tundra series (120/240 mm), which was available in an RGB version as well. This time around, it’s a fully ARGB LCS, although unfortunately not expandable (similarly to most of the solutions on the market today), unlike the Alphacool Eisbaer 280 Extreme or Swiftech H240 X3 that we reviewed here recently.

arctic-freezer-50-trKeeping Threadripper cool on a budget

By Garrett Carver @ Tom’s Hardware

A large, dual-tower heatpipe cooler with an RGB accented shroud, Arctic’s newly released Freezer 50 TR is designed specifically to attack the substantial thermal loads produced by AMD’s Threadripper CPUs. For $75.99 (£60), the Freezer 50 TR even includes an aRGB control module to manage the integrated lighting accents along the top of the cooler shroud.

amd-wraith-prism-cpu-coolerBy Richard Gouge @ HardOCP

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.
