All-in-one CPU cooling has become huge over the past few years and naturally a number of vendors have begun offering all-in-one liquid coolers for GPUs as well. These all-in-one GPU liquid coolers combine an all-in-one liquid cooling unit for the GPU die along with with traditional air based coolers for the VRAM, PWMs, and other components. While it’s still a relatively niche market, big name vendors such as NZXT’s Kraken G10 and Corsair’s HG10 have been on the market for quite some time, and even AMD jumped into the mix using a similar solution for their flagship Radeon R9 295×2.
Not to be outdone, EVGA is now jumping into the bandwagon with [...]
In recent years, CPU all in one (AIO) water cooling has become quite popular with system builders for its ease of use and superior performance over air cooling, and recently GPU AIO water cooling is beginning to gain traction as well with AMD’s latest flagship Radeon R9 295 X2 being one of the first graphics cards to include an AIO water cooling system in its reference design.
While AIO water cooling is a fantastic solution for single GPU setups, where it really shines is in multi-GPU configurations where cards are stacked on top of each other with very little room to breathe. For users stuck in situations like these, Gigabyte wants to make it easy for users to [...]
As one of Nvidia’s biggest GPU partners, PNY also claimed one of the largest booths at Nvidia’s annual GTC event. Being one of the only companies out there with product lines for pretty much every type of consumer from gamer to enterprise, PNY had a ton of products on the show floor, one of which was a highly promising prototype of an all in one (AIO) CPU/GPU cooler.
Those familiar with PNY’s line of XLR8 graphics cards will also be familiar with the fact that water cooled graphics cards aren’t necessarily new for the company. Back when the GeForce 500 Series graphics cards were the hot new thing, PNY already brought to market an AIO water [...]
A couple years ago Corsair came to CPU cooling market with the Corsair Hydro H50 all in one CPU water cooler, which provided computer enthusiasts with a way to easily install a water cooling system without the knowledge, hazards, difficulties, and costs of building a fully custom water cooling setup. Because of its ease of use and its relatively good performance, several years later Corsair along with a multitude of companies introduced a variety of these all-in-one water coolers. Now, the market for these products seem to be expanding at an exponential rate.
While the CPU cooling market is currently saturated with companies trying to get into the closed [...]
To fulfilling the user’s demand, ARCTIC developed another graphics card cooler that integrates air and liquid solution together – the Accelero Hybrid 7970. For the world’s first 28nm AMD 7900/7800 series GPUs, it offers an all-in-one solution with 200% cooling performance and is up to13 times quieter than the stock cooler. It boosts the cooling capacity up to 320 Watts at a fraction of the noise level. If you are an enthusiast or overclocker, the Accelero Hyrbid 7970 is your choice.
The copper cold plate on the pump offers an ideal thermal conductivity. Its 120 mm PWM fan (F12) compliments [...]
5-10 years ago, NZXT cases weren’t well known at all. They had some innovative, but seriously crazy looking case designs such as the NZXT Guardian Green, which (may be due in part to its craziness) to this day is still a case I remember from the days when I was still in high school.
Over recent years, it seems like NZXT has gone a tad bit more conservative in their designs, but are still bringing plenty of innovation to the table. These days, NZXT is considered a top brand among PC builders with well many well known products such as the NZXT Phantom, the NZXT Sentry, and many more.
Today we’ll be taking a look at one of NZXT’s newest [...]
All in one liquid CPU cooling solutions are all the rage these days with manufacturers such as Corsair, Antec, Zalman, and even Intel and AMD jumping into the mix with their own branded solutions. However, despite the popularity of these liquid CPU coolers, there aren’t really any at all in the all in one liquid GPU cooler market. Until now.
According to a recent press release by ARCTIC, the company plans to release their VGA Liquid Cooling Solution (LCS), the Accelero Hybrid, on the 29th of this month. ARCTIC is claiming that the new cooler will have “…200% cooling performance and will be 9 times quieter than the stock cooler.” [...]
No doubt many of us have heard of NZXT’s most popular case, the Phantom. It was one of the most popular cases when it was released back in 2010 and continues to be one of the most popular cases on the market today. What’s so special about it? Well, for starters it had some very unique, futuristic looking styling that made it look like a “Storm Trooper” out of Star Wars. Aside from that, it was also a full tower case with plenty of airflow, plenty of space, and it was supremely easy to work with. Not to mention, it was and still is one of the most inexpensive full tower cases on the market, currently priced at only [...]
We recently reviewed ARCTIC’s new flagship GPU cooler, the ARCTIC Accelero Xtreme 7970, and along with that, ARCTIC also gave us the opportunity to check out their new flagship Freezer CPU cooler. What’s interesting about the new Freezer CPU cooler is that they’ve introduced two SKUs of the exact same cooler, whereas one, the i30, is compatible with Intel sockets only while the other, the A30, is compatible with AMD sockets only. Considering most people don’t really need the mounting brackets for both Intel and AMD sockets when purchasing a new CPU cooler, I think this is a pretty wise move by ARCTIC to create less unnecessary [...]
Well, we’re finally nearing the final launch of the Nvidia’s 28nm Kepler GK104 (allegedly also known as the GeForce GTX 670 Ti), so for those of you who can’t wait any longer, here’s some more pictures of the new GPU to help string you along until it actually comes out.
Here we’ve got a first look at the cooler itself with the shroud removed. It’s quite similar to what we’ve seen in previous generation GPUs, so it’s not much of a surprise here. You can also see that the card requires a pair of 6 pin PCIe power connectors, so it shouldn’t be a super power hungry GPU.
