Noctua Introduces Three Quiet Coolers for Intel LGA3647 Socket CPUs

Category: CPU Cooling
Posted: June 19, 2018 02:00PM
Author: Guest_Jim_*


Regardless of what your processor is, properly cooling it is important, and proper cooling can involve having a cooler with a coldplate sized to your chip's IHS. To satisfy the need for Intel's LGA3647 socket, Noctua is introducing three new quiet coolers to cover Xeon Scalable and Xeon-Phi processors. The NH-U14S DX-3647, NH-U12S DX-3647, and NH-U9S DX-3647 4U all feature 70 x 56 mm plate to cover these large processors. The U14S naturally is the model with a 140 mm fan, in this case a single NF-A15 PWM fan, while the other two coolers will use a dual-fan configuration. The U12S has a pair of NF-A12x25 while the U9S uses two NF-A9 HS-PWM fans. The two larger coolers are meant more for tower-style cases but the NH-U9S DX-3647 4U is small enough that four of them can fit inside of cases meant to hold four large LGA3647 CPUs. Two sets of brackets come with the coolers to support both the square and narrow versions of the LGA3647 sockets.

It might be worth noting the 28-core/56-thread CPU Intel showed off at Computex as coming later this year was most likely in an LGA3647 socket. Of course these coolers will likely not get you to 5 GHz, but then it is hard to compete with a water chiller.

Author: Guest_Jim_*


If you like having components featuring RGB LEDs then you might also like the ability to control them and synchronize them with the rest of your components. To satisfy that desire, ID-Cooling has released its new CHROMAFLOW 240 AIO liquid cooler with its full-addressable RGB LEDs. Both the pump and the two included fans have the controllable LEDs and with the RGB splitter they can be connected to and controlled by the motherboard. The splitter can actually connect four devices to the motherboard, so you can synchronize another fan with it, if you wish. The cooler also comes with a remote control for controlling the lighting.

Moving on to the specs of the cooler, it has a 240 mm radiator and comes with a pair of ZF-12025-RGB fans, which have 14 addressable LEDs in their frames. These are PWM controlled from 900 RPM up to 2000 RPM with a maximum airflow of 55.2 CFM, each. Rubber dampeners are mounted at the four corners to lessen vibration. The pump uses a micro-fin pure copper base to quickly transfer heat from the CPU to the coolant. It is compatible with current AMD and Intel sockets and has an MSRP of $119.99.

Posted: April 17, 2018 10:56AM
Author: Guest_Jim_*

If you are among those who want your computer to shine in your colors, Cooler Master has announced its first AIO liquid CPU coolers with addressable RGB lights. With addressable RGB LEDs it is possible to control the lights from the software for Asus, MSI, and ASRock motherboards, or with the MasterPlus+ software coming from Cooler Master in the future.

The two new coolers are the Master Liquid ML120R RGB and ML240R RGB, with the ML120R featuring a 120 mm radiator while the ML240R has a 240 mm radiator for improved cooling. The new pump design has 12 addressable RGB LEDs on the block and each fan has eight. Each LED can be controlled individually through the motherboard or Cooler Master software, and they are able to produce 16.7 million colors as well.

Besides the addressable RGB LEDs, these coolers also feature a dual chamber pump design, that keeps the incoming and outgoing coolant separate for more efficient cooling and the radiators are low resistance, for easy air flow. While the ML120R is only large enough for one 120 mm fan on a side, it actually comes with two fans for a push-pull configuration. The FEP tubing is sleeved for improved durability.

Both coolers are on available today with the ML120R RGB priced at $99.99 and the ML240R RGB costing $119.99. The MasterPlus+ software from Cooler Master for managing the RGB is in beta testing currently, but should be available in May. Until then, users can use the provided RGB controller.

Author: Guest_Jim_*


When putting together a computer, there can be a balancing act between performance and noise, but thankfully there are a number of products out there that exist to enable high performance without being loud. A new example of this is the Dark Rock 4 series from be quiet!, a power supply market leader in Germany that also makes air coolers. The Dark Rock 4 and Dark Rock Pro 4 build on the designs of their predecessors to provide greater cooling without being louder.

The Dark Rock 4 single-tower cooler has a maximum power capacity of 200 W thanks to optimizations compared to the previous design. It sports six heat pipes to bring the heat up to the wave-contoured cooling fans that also feature a special black coating that contains ceramic particles to improve heat transfer. It comes with a single Silent Wings PWM fan to move air silently.

The Dark Rock Pro 4 is a double-tower cooler with many of the same features of the Dark Rock 4. It has a seventh heat pipe though and a second fan, a Silent Wings 3 PWM, for improved cooling, reaching a TDP of 250 W. While the Dark Rock 4 improved its cooling while staying as loud as its predecessor, the Dark Rock 4 Pro instead reduced the noise level to 24.3 dB(A) while keeping the cooling performance of its predecessor.

The Dark Rock 4 has an MSRP of $74.90 while the Dark Rock Pro 4 is set to cost you $89.99. Both coolers are backed by a three-year warranty.

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.

Corsair Introduces the Hydro Series H110i GTX CPU Cooler and New HG10 Video Card Brackets

Category: CPU Cooling
Posted: June 1, 2015 10:09AM
Author: bp9801


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.

Both coolers are compatible with a wide range of Intel and AMD systems. The NH-C14S has an MSRP of $74.90 and the NH-D15S has a price of $79.90.

Scythe has announced its latest entry into the CPU cooler market, the Ninja 4, the official successor to the Ninja 3 Rev. B. The Ninja 4 continues the goal of "keeping focus on passive and semi-passive cooling capabilities of the tower-cooler." A 120mm GlideStream PWM fan is included to help dissipate heat from the cooling block, and the inclusion of a fan controller with three settings allows users to choose a balance of fan speed and noise level. Six copper heat-pipes run from the base of the cooler through the cooling fins. The total weight of the cooler has been reduced by 175 grams from an old weight of 905 grams. The Ninja 4 features support for a wide range of CPU sockets from both Intel and AMD. The Ninja 4 is available starting today at an MSRP of €37.50, or about $41.83 according to exchange rates as of this post.

CRYORIG has introduced a new CPU cooler to its midst that builds on the success of its H5 Universal cooler. The CRYORIG H5 Ultimate features the same design as the H5 Universal, but features a bigger XF140 140mm fan and a TDP increase to 180 watts instead of 160 watts. This gives the Hive Fin air flow system a chance to show its capabilities and cooling potential. The XF140 fan has a 76 CFM rating, which is about a 17% increase over the fan on the H5 Universal. There are also jet black heat sink covers on the H5 Ultimate to give it a streamlined look and set it apart from past models. The MultiSeg mounting system ensures compatibility on a wide range of sockets, with all current AMD and Intel sockets accounted.

The CRYORIG H5 Ultimate will be available this summer for $46.99.
