World's First Software Controlled RGB Heatsink Made by CRYORIG and NZXT

Category: CPU Cooling
Posted: May 31, 2016 12:02PM
Author: Guest_Jim_*

CRYORIG and NZXT have teamed up to bring us the world's first software controlled RGB heatsink, the H7 Quad Lumi. As you might have guessed by the name, it is based on the CRYORIG H7 cooler, but has been upgraded some, increasing its performance by at least 10%, so it now supports 150+ W CPUs. It has four 6 mm heatpipes and its base is pure copper with nickel playing.

Beyond the improved heatpipes, the H7 Quad Lumi features the Lumi lighting system. This system is built on NZXT's Hue+ controller board, which will allow it to sport nine special lighting effects at launch, with more coming via firmware updates. The Lumi system is also capable of dual channel LED configurations, so the lights at the logo and base of the cooler can be controlled separately. Naturally the software for controlling the LEDs, NZXT CAM, will also allow one to monitor the CPU temperature, fan RPM, and profile settings.

The targeted release date is the 2016 holiday season. Price will be announced later.

Various CPU Coolers Are Likely Damaging Intel Skylake CPUs

Category: CPU Cooling
Posted: December 4, 2015 05:48AM
Author: Brentt Moore

Owners of Intel Skylake processors have begun reporting that their CPUs are being damaged, apparently due to the CPU coolers that are being utilized within system builds. This is due to the substrate on Skylake processors being thinner than that of previous generations, though Intel is claiming that Skylake CPUs still feature the same 50 pound maximum static load as prior generations. Various manufacturers of CPU coolers for Skylake products have publically noted that while their products may be compatible with socket 1151, the mounting pressure as well as the weight of the coolers may potentially cause damage, especially during shipping. Scythe, for example, has revealed that while its mounting system is compatible with Skylake sockets, it is providing owners of its Ashura, Mugen 4, Mugen 4 PCGH-Edition, Fuma, Ninja 4, Grand Kama Cross 4, Mugen Max, and Kotetsu products with a new set of screws that reduces overall mounting pressure, decreasing the risk of damage.

Intel is currently investigating the reports of damaged Skylake CPUs caused by CPU coolers, but did note that it does not test third-party cooling solutions and simply provides vendors with specifications guidelines that they are supposed to follow.

Noctua Introduces the NM-i115x Upgrade Kit for Intel Z170 Motherboards

Category: CPU Cooling
Posted: August 5, 2015 09:34AM
Author: bp9801

Intel's new Skylake processors have arrived, and with them come a new chipset and socket for motherboards. The Skylake processors run on Z170 motherboards and the LGA1151 socket, which is no surprise given the processors support DDR4 memory. It does mean that some CPU coolers may not support the LGA1151 socket right away, but if you have an older Noctua cooler, you're in luck. Noctua has announced the NM-i115x kit that can upgrade its older coolers to support the LGA1151 socket and allow you to keep using that favorite cooler. This kit is a free upgrade for most Noctua owners whose cooler won't work on Skylake (there are some coolers that require the kit to be purchased). All you need to do is a provide a proof of purchase (screenshot, photo, or scan) of the Noctua cooler and either the Z170 motherboard or Skylake processor, and then Noctua will ship you the NM-i115x kit.

The NM-i115x kit works on all Noctua coolers made since 2005, but all new coolers that came with the SecuFirm 2 mounting kit won't need to take advantage of it. If you own one of those and are already on an LGA1150, 1155, or 1156 motherboard, you can swap over to LGA1151 without worry. To see which coolers already fit on which motherboards, you can see Noctua's handy chart here. The NM-i115x kit can also be purchased in stores for a small fee if your cooler is not part of the free upgrade offer.

CRYORIG Introduces the A Series Hybrid Liquid Coolers and Pi IoT PSUs

Category: CPU Cooling
Posted: June 2, 2015 08:57AM
Author: bp9801

CRYORIG has some new products it is introducing at Computex, with both liquid CPU coolers and a power supply series getting the royal treatment. The liquid CPU coolers belong to the A Series and are hybrid liquid cooling designs, where a 70mm Airflow Circulator fan is attached to the CPU block to help reduce temperatures in the surrounding components by up to 10 °C. The fan can be removed and attached however you like, so you can have it pointed at the VRMs, the video card(s), or the RAM. It's a PWM model that spins at up to 3,000RPM, but can dynamically adjust based on need, and should be virtually inaudible over any other system fan. CRYORIG's A Series Hybrid Liquid Coolers come in three different models, with the A40 and A40 Ultimate featuring a 240mm radiator with 120mm fans, and the A80 featuring a 280mm radiator with 140mm fans. Both the A40 and A80 feature 25mm thick fans, while the A40 Ultimate bumps it up to 38mm thick fans.

The company's Pi power supply series is one that may seem like any other power supply, until you get to one important feature that sets it apart. CRYORIG designed the Pi PSUs with Internet of Things (IoT) support to help minimize the hassle of configuring a Wake on LAN/Wake on WAN remote desktop function. Thanks to the Zero Hassle Hardware Wake feature, the Pi PSU can be paired with a smartphone over WiFi to perform the remote desktop capabilities you want. You can turn on your system after a power outage, turn it off to prevent damage during a storm, make sure you turned off your PC before heading on a trip, or any other function you can think of. Fan speed control, energy usage, power management, and more can all happen in the future with Pi and IoT, so it'll be very interesting to see where CRYORIG takes it. As for the PSUs themselves, they come in 660, 860, and 1000 watt models, range between 80 PLUS Gold to 80 PLUS Platinum, and are cooled by a 120mm PWM fan.

The CRYORIG A Series Hybrid Liquid Coolers will be available this summer, although prices are not yet known. The Pi power supplies are a proof of concept model to show what the Internet of Things is capable of, and are slated to arrive next summer.

One of the many things Corsair knows how to do is cooling, with fans and CPU coolers featured in many different setups. It also knows GPU cooling by way of its CPU coolers, and today we get the best of both worlds. Corsair has announced its new Hydro Series H110i GTX CPU cooler, its most advanced and customizable cooler to date, as well as new HG10 cooling brackets for the TITAN X, GTX 980 Ti, GTX 980, and GTX 970 video cards. The H110i GTX has two 140mm fans on a 280mm radiator for some extreme cooling potential, plus quiet performance thanks to an improved pump design. Combine that with the improved coldplate and Corsair says the efficiency of the H110i GTX is second to none. The 140mm fans are the SP140L PWM models, which feature high-static pressure and customizable speeds. The built-in Corsair Link software lets users monitor the temperatures of both the CPU and coolant, adjust the fan speed, and change the RGB LED lighting all from the desktop.

The Hydro Series HG10 N980 and N970 cooling brackets can fit onto reference model NVIDIA GeForce TITAN X, GTX 980 Ti, GTX 980, GTX 970, and GTX 760 video cards. A Corsair Hydro Series CPU cooler of your choice can be fitted onto the bracket to help drop GPU temperatures and increase overclocking headroom. Corsair states GPU temps can drop by as much as 45 °C while clock speeds can increase up to 25%. The HG10's blower style fan can keep the VRM and VRAM cool, so pushing things as far as they can should not be an issue. Attach one of these babies to the video card of choice and you're one step closer to rocking it in the Bulldog.

The Corsair Hydro Series H110i GTX, HG10 N980, and HG10 N970 will be available starting in July. The H110i GTX is priced at $139.99, features a five-year warranty, and supports the Intel LGA 115x, 1366, and 2011 sockets, plus AMD AM2, AM3, FM1, and FM3 sockets.

Author: bp9801

Noctua, one of the leaders in cooling products, has a new CPU cooler that is a little smaller than what you may be use to. The NH-L9x65 low-profile cooler is desgined to fit into systems that don't offer a lot of vertical space, but still need some extra cooling. This low-profile cooler is a beefier model of the older NH-L9 cooler, as it stands 65mm tall (counting the fan) instead of 37mm, and has four heat pipes instead of two. That 65mm height falls right in line with low-profile expansion cards, and ideal for HTPC or SFF cases. It still has a 95x95mm footprint, so it isn't any wider than the past cooler, and will not interfere with the RAM or PCIe cards. The NH-L9x65 features the SecuFirm 2 multi-socket mounting system for AMD and Intel compatibility, as well as the NT-H1 thermal paste and a six-year warranty.

Noctua also has a new fan, the NF-A6x25 PWM, which, as the name suggests, is a PWM version of the NF-A6x25. This 60mm fan features a 4-pin header to be dynamically controlled by the motheboard, and even has a Low-Noise-Adaptor to drop the maximum RPM from 3000 to 2300 during PWM use.

The Noctua NH-L9x65 low-profile cooler and NF-A6x25 PWM fan will be available soon, with the cooler coming in at $52.90 / €44.90 and the fan at $17.90 / €14.90.
