E3 2016: Phononic Unveils Hex 2.0 Thermoelectric Cooler

When choosing consumer CPU cooling technologies, there aren’t exactly all that many options in the marketplace. For most users, an air cooler or an all-in-one watercooling loop is likely going to be your best option. Until now. The Thermoelectric cooling experts at Phononic is looking to change up the game with the introduction of their Hex 2.0 Thermoelectric CPU cooler.

From the outside, the Hex 2.0 looks fairly typical as it uses your standard twin tower design with a 92mm Sanyo Denki San Ace 92 fan sandwiched in between. At the front of the unit, there’s a 6-pin PCIe power connector, a 4-pin fan header and a microUSB port which [...]

Cooler Master Releases Hyper 212X CPU Air Cooler

Cooler Master continues to expand its renowned Hyper 212 Series CPU coolers with the release of the Hyper 212X.

The last update the Hyper 212 series received was the Hyper 212 EVO in 2011. While it’s still a fantastic budget cooler, 5 years is a long time without an update.

The Hyper 212X is looking to bring the Hyper 212 line into 2016 with a number of subtle improvements. Cooler Master has added a few “X” shaped indents on the heatsink blade to help improve airflow around the heatpipes. The fan has been updated to one that uses rifle bearings for improved lifespan – and now without the gloss.

Other than that, little has [...]

CES 2015: Cooler Master Talks Restructuring Plans, 3D Vapor Chamber, CoolChip Partnership

2014 has been an unusually quiet year for Cooler Master. The computer component and peripheral giant who typically launches at least five to ten products every quarter hasn’t really made a whole lot of noise over the past year. As such, we were a bit curious to find out what happened to such a prominent force in the industry, so we took a quick trip to the Cooler Master CES suite to talk to Marketing Manager, Rajiv Kothari.

When we arrived at the Cooler Master suite this year, the suite was unusually clean, uncluttered, and relatively quiet. Here we met up with Rajiv, who spoke to us for a good hour about Cooler Master’s plans for the [...]

GTC 2013: PNY Shows Off Prototype Modular AIO GPU/CPU Water Cooler

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 [...]

Best CPU Cooler Roundup Review Feat. Corsair, Cooler Master, Noctua, Phanteks, Zalman

Battle of the Titans

Up until the release of Sandy Bridge processors back in early 2011, overclocking was something generally reserved for only the most hardcore gamers and enthusiasts who wanted to push their systems to the limits. Overclocking required countless hours of tinkering and testing, which was generally a bit too complicated for mainstream users.

With the release of Sandy Bridge however, the landscape of overclocking has really changed dramatically. Significant overclocks may now be had with simple motherboard overclocking buttons or 5 minute adjustments in the BIOS, which greatly simplified the once complicated and confusing task.

With [...]

CES 2013: Zalman CNPS FX100 Cube Fanless CPU Cooler

Zalman has long established itself as a leading name in the field of cooling. This year at CES 2013 they showcased their new fanless CPU color, the Zalman CNPS FX100 Cube Fanless CPU Cooler, a winner of the 2013 innovation award. Compatible with almost all CPU sockets, both old and new, the fanless cooler aims to bring a powerful cooling solution without the added noise pollution of standard CPU coolers. Using a large amount of pure copper and aluminum heatpipes, the cooler transfers the heat from the CPU to the cooler and out via natural heat dissipation; however for users looking for additional performance, an extra 92mm fan can be installed to aid in cooling.

Cooler Master Teases New Eisberg Series Water Cooler

When companies these days look into adding all in one water cooling systems to their product lineups, they usually go to ODMs, namely Asetek and CoollIt Systems, who help design, produce, and manufacture the water coolers. This is why every all in one water cooling solution looks more or less the same no matter whose logo is plastered on the product.

Cooling giant Cooler Master on the other hand, develops their own. First seen on display at CeBit 2012, the Eisberg water cooler is a product developed by a collaboration between Cooler Master and German based company Eheim, who typically produces aquarium related products.

Below is a teaser trailer recently [...]
