Scythe presents new Ninja 4 CPU Cooler

 Scythe presents new Ninja 4 CPU Cooler 11.05.2015, Oststeinbek (Germany) – Japanese cooling expert Scythe announces the official successor of Ninja 3 Rev. B CPU Cooler. Ninja 4 comes with some major technical innovations, including the increased performance and reduction of overall weight by 180 grams. Wide range compatibility to the common sockets from AMD™ and Intel™ is assured, which is very typical for Scythe products. Ninja 4 stays true to the core concept of the Ninja series, by keeping focus on passive and semi-passive cooling capabilities of the tower-cooler. To further underline this core concept, a new fan with additional features has been introduced. The GlideStream 120 PWM fan has been equipped with a special fan controller, allowing users to switch between three different fan speed ranges. Low mode has been tuned for extremely silent operation, where PWM control range varies from 300 to 800 RPM at virtually inaudible noise levels from 4,0 to 12,5 dBA. Medium mode suits most user purposes, as it covers a wider range from 300 to 1.150 RPM and offers the best performance to silence ratio. The last mode has been implemented for users seeking more performance, since it offers the maximum fan speed range starting at 300 and ending at 1.500 RPM. Supplied GlideStream 120 PWM fan has great influence on the Ninja 4 design in addition, thanks to its grey fan blades and black fan-frame. Scythe has made modifications to the structural design of the Ninja 4, where t...

Reeven Six Eyes II Fan Controller and Euros 120mm Cooling Fan

Reeven Six Eyes Box

Introduction Let’s talk about what building computers is all about to us enthusiasts. We can claim that it’s our love for new stuff, building or putting things together, or even the thrill of problem solving, but let’s be honest with ourselves. It’s all about control! Being able to control every aspect of our PC without any manufacturer telling us what we can or can’t do!!! All jokes aside, being able to control fan noise is a must in a high end rig and while certain motherboards offer decent fan control, sometimes the best solution is a good fan controller. With that, we’ll be looking at the Reeven Six Eyes II Fan Controller to see how well it measures up and while we’re at it, we’ll take a peek at the Euros 120mm Cooling Fan. Before we jump in though, if you’re like me, you may not have heard about Reeven so here’s a quick snippet about the company based in Taiwan. I’m not exactly sure what gears have to do with computer components, but I do appreciate professional quality. Let’s see how they measure up!

Kinivo thinks they have a set up that will fit into a nice budget while sounding good. The verdict has yet to be seen, but first here’s a tidbit about the company behind the M2 2.1 Speaker System.

QBX is as elegant as any new generation console, it is compact enough to be placed in the living room, and can house a gaming PC much more powerful than any console on the market. QBX’s elegance does not come only from its small size and looks, but also for its compatibility with slot loading ODD and its extremely efficient cable management.
