Noctua industrialPPC 24V Fans and Chromax Accessories Review

Introduction Typically, nobody is supposed to run a piece of hardware outside of the way that it was intended to run. Of course, we make exceptions because we love to overclock things and see how much extra performance there is to be gained. So it may seem a bit strange to review something and only give it half of what it’s capable of. When you consider that the goal is silence in cooling, then it begins to make sense. NOCTUA just released a new series of industrialPPC fans that rate at 24V. While this can be useful for high end server environments that don’t care about noise as much, the benefit for everyday consumers is at 12V, the fans will run more silently while hopefully giving decent air flow. We’ll find out how well they do, but there’s one more huge thing that consumers have been waiting eons for. COLORS!!! That’s right. NOCTUA is finally giving consumers a broad range of colors to customize their fans beyond brown or beige (I suppose there were those grey colors too). Personally, all it took for me to fall in love with a NOCTUA fan was to see how it performed in person, but I totally understand people who don’t go in on one of them because of the color scheme. Now there are Chromax accessories that allow the user to customize each fan to have a splash of color that matches a build better, while still having the professional look that comes from having a NOCTUA fan over a flashy LED fan. We’ll see how those look in a b...

Corsair H110i GTX Review

Introduction Who says reviews have to be 100% serious all the time? With the time of the year being what it is, I decided to have a little fun with the video portion of the review. This could be the first and last time you get to see a star ship captain explore the finer details of a PC component. We hope you enjoy the video, but let’s go ahead and jump into the written review of this Corsair unit. Corsair has been known for making silent CLC units. They usually sacrifice pump and fan speed to avoid some noise, but at the same time their units have managed to stay pretty high on the performance pile. Recently, however, the competition has been working harder and Corsair has had to start making units that could offer better performance over raw silence. This is where the GT and GTX line of coolers are coming from. The Corsair H110i GTX is trying to offer the best performance of any CLC on the market. Will it succeed? We’ll try and find out how well this unit measures up, but before we begin, let’s hear a brief word from Corsair themselves. Founded in 1994, Corsair has grown from pioneering the high-performance DRAM market to one of the world’s leading providers of enthusiast-grade PC components and peripherals. Our groundbreaking technology and innovation can be found in our high-performance memory, ultra-efficient power supplies, PC cases, PC and CPU cooling solutions, and solid-state storage devices. Under the Corsair Gaming brand, launched in 2014, w...



Noctua NH-L9 (5)

Noctua NH-L9x65 Review

Introduction Noctua is renowned for their silent performance, but lately we’ve been seeing more products that fit into the small form-factor HTPC market over the ultra-enthusiasts monster performance market. This no doubt indicates a shift in less desire for the newest high end products and more demand for parts that “get the job done.” The NH-L9x65 is one such product. Here, Noctua is introducing a very nice, low-profile CPU cooler that fits the bill entirely for keeping an ITX style computer cool in it’s constrained case space. We know Noctua can make great coolers, but now we’ll see how well this small cooler stacks up. We’ll be finding out soon enough but before we start taking a closer look, let’s pause for a brief statement about who Noctua is and what they are passionate about.

Reeven Okeanos CPU Cooler Review

Introduction Reeven is a fairly new company that has been trying to prove it has what it takes in the computer hardware industry. I’ve already reviewed two products from them and both were incredibly good considering how new the company is. They also offer products that I felt were preferential to anything else on the market. Reeven is trying to do something special here and I feel like the Okeanos CPU cooler will help us unfold more of what their end game is going to be. However, the dual tower CPU cooler market is very competitive and even if a product shows that it can handle the heat, there has to be some very compelling reasons to make it the clear winner for a person’s system. Does the Reeven Okeanos have what it takes? We’ll find out soon enough, but first, let’s get a refresher about who Reeven is. REEVEN is a newly established international manufacturer of PC related products. REEVEN’s product lines includes the best quality of advanced CPU coolers, Cooling Fans,PC Cases and many other items. the target of our products will be a wide range of audience under our philosophy “Professional Quality Gears”, for products that will withstand the highest demand I still can’t place my finger on what “Professional Quality Gears” means exactly. The world may never know.



TF120 Red

DeepCool Gamer Storm TF120 Fan Review

Introduction If computer hardware had a trifecta, then a perfect score would be in the categories of performance, aesthetics and cost. It would be safe to say that you can usually score high in two categories, but you probably won’t get lucky with finding something that excels in all three. Costs aside, finding hardware that looks excellent while maintaining great performance can be hard as well. Today, DEEPCOOL has a new series of fans that look excellent for any gaming rig, but the real question is how well the 2-layer blade design will work in comparison to the old school single blade design. We’ll find out how the Gamer Storm TF120 does soon enough but first, let’s hear a word about the company behind the new design. Deepcool was founded with the mission of providing the best performance and humanized thermal solutions for worldwide customers. Established in 1996, headquartered in Beijing, factory was established in Shen Zhen, Deepcool originally produced desktop, server coolers and cooling accessories. With the rapid development of personal computers, Deepcool expanded the business into AIO liquid cooling products, chassis, power supplies..

There are many aspects to choosing the right cooler for you. First, you need to look at what’s important… Here are a few questions you should ask yourself: 1. What kind of processor or platform will I be installing? 2. Will I need something that can handle overclocking? 3. What size of cooler do I need for my mainboard and case?
