It's funny how one product can lead to a new and quite different product and in the case of Sapphire the company feels that it's Vapor-X graphics card coolers have been so popular that it's highly likely that we'll see CPU coolers using the Vapor-X technology from the company. As such the company was demoing
Noctua is better catering to users requiring a lower profile CPU cooler with the birth of its new NH-L12; a cooler sporting four nickel-plated copper heatpipes that should feel right at home in Small Form Factor and HTPC cases in particular.
Going a long while back now, Thermalright quickly gained a much stronger presence in the CPU cooling realm when it introduced the almighty Ultra 120 Extreme (or TRUE as it became more popularly referred to) which was arguably the biggest, boldest and best performing air cooler for your Pentium IV or Athon 64 CPU and
A few weeks ago AMD added a few new special SKUs to its Llano lineup, one of which really interested us as it came with an unlocked multiplier. The A8-3870K we have here with us today has been put through one of our famous bench sessions, follow us as we go through what we did
Over here at CES 2012 Las Vegas in their Bellagio suite, Cooler Master unveiled their latest products coming this year, including limited editions of the their larger than life COSMOS 2 casings, updated CM Storm Mice and full-sized mechanical keyboards (more on these later), and a new vapour chamber based CPU cooler with performance designed
Asetek launched their concept of liquid cooling for high density servers to be used in datacenters. The idea of server liquid cooling in datacenters is as old as the datacenter itself, but this time we're approaching the tipping point.
Coolermaster has just released their first LGA 2011 cooler. Their new product listens to the name Hyper 412S and is a direct heatpipe contact tower cooler utilizing one or two 120mm fans. It also has the option to run entirely silent by slowing the fan down at only 900RPM.
Continuing with tradition, Noctua is offering the new NM-I2011 SecuFirm2™ mountings free of charge to new and existing customers, which is compatible with their whole line of retail heatsinks. We at VR-Zone tested it on our previously reviewed NH-C14 and the new ASUS Sabertooth X79 to bring you the mounting procedures and some idea about ram clearance.
The Cooler Master Hyper 412 PWM is one of the first air coolers with native Socket LGA 2011 screw-type support to arrive at our test labs. We give our readers a glimpse of the new member of our extensive heat sink collection…

Even though computer water cooling started off about fifteen years ago, it was not until a couple of years ago when companies first released closed loop, ready to run liquid based coolers for PC components. One of the first companies which released such a liquid based cooler a couple of years ago was Corsair.
In the world of home computing, using water cooling started off when a couple of enthusiasts tried to achieve high overclocking performance on their (at the time) top of the line 486DX processors. Within a few months the trend took off and many enthusiasts and overclockers were designing and building their own parts, when companies
Adept PC users are rarely satisfied with the factory bundled CPU cooler, being it because of the performance, noise and/or aesthetics, creating a great demand for good aftermarket cooling solutions. Out of the many products currently available, today we are having a close look at the latest offering from Akasa, the Venom Voodoo CPU
We at VR-Zone test many combinations of motherboards and CPU platforms throughout the year, often demanding quick assembly/disassembly of heatsinks and decent air cooling performance in order to maximize overclocks in the shortest possible time. One CPU cooler (among many on our shelves) that we prefer to use in particular, is the Thermalright Silver Arrow.
Gelid Solutions is one of the few companies which focus entirely on designing and supplying cooling solutions for PC systems; at least at the time of this review. It is a relatively new company, founded only back in 2008, which is based in Hong Kong and has Swiss management. Today we are going to
