Eisbaer for High End AIO CPU Cooling CES 2019 was a great time, but nothing says custom PCs like liquid cooling. We got the chance to see what Alphcool was announcing. For starters, we have the Eisbaer Extreme AIO. The big thing that separates this cooler from the rest is the solid copper radiator. Even if a cooler bypasses aluminum for the rad, a mix of copper and brass is often used to help reduce costs.
Phanteks has announced several releases worth noting. The Enthoo Pro case has tempered glass now, the Halos Lux fan frames are an easy RGB upgrade, and the Glacier reservoirs are an elegant addition to the custom loop cooling scene.
Enermax brings an excellent design to the reservoir scene with the NEOChanger. The quality and performance would make any custom liquid cooling loop proud, but the RGB lighting is a great addition as well. If you want a reservoir and pump combo, Enermax is a great place to start.
The NEOChanger looks great with it's RGB lighting. Not only can it be controlled separately, but it can also sync with motherboard RGB lighting. On top of that, the pump reservoir combo has several size options and the performance looks great for custom loops.
XSPC has been known to bring attractive product to the market usually at an equally attractive price tag. These two factors have made them very popular over the last few years. Radiators, reservoirs, tubing and fittings all were released with a good amount of fanfare. None of those came close to the buzz created by the Photon D5 combo. The sturdy glass Photon was already an instant success and combining it with a strong D5 pump sent a strong message to everyone: XSPC has great minds at work. The sticking point was the overall size left some out in the cold wishing for a combo setup that could fit in the smaller chassis. Ok folks, we are here today to finally silence those that have been complaining, wishing or requesting loudly to XSPC after they released the combo Photon D5 Reservoir . You got your wish! XSPC decided to follow up the incredibly popular Photon D5 with a sought after DDC version. This will make many people happy, including me as I have been working on a lot of small systems lately. The smaller size, good head pressure and sturdy stain resistant glass has me excited to see what it can do and how well it can fit into a beloved small form factor case. Let us get started then.
Introduction Test benches are all the rage these days. People aren’t just using them for testing anymore – they’re actually using them to build daily use PC rigs. Don’t get me wrong, a majority of bench users (like myself) still use them for their intended purpose – hardware testing. Benches make it easy and fast to swap out components giving them the edge over traditional cases. Their open-air looks however have drawn in the modding crowd as of late, with people modding production benches and also plenty of bench-style scratch builds. Primochill recently got into the test bench market and their first offering – the Wet Bench – caters to both traditional hardware testers and daily users alike. They were kind enough to send us one to check out so let’s take a look! About Primochill “Family owned and family ran bleeding edge water cooling company based in Rio Rancho, NM USA.

Personal computers have taken a big leap since the Pentium 4’s era. We no longer have beige enclosures, mismatched colored motherboards, bare-galvanized PSUs without sleeved cables...etc. Today’s computer modders and builders not only want performance and reliability but also aesthetics. Strategically selected components and color schemes are important for the build. From the enclosures down to the wires, everything has to be cosmetic. Some even spend countless hours sleeving every single wire in the system. Computer components have been gradually becoming more efficient and cooler running. In fact,air coolers have improved in design so much they’re getting almost as efficient AIO water coolers, yet they cost much less. However, on the other hand, DIY water cooling is undergoing a renaissance. Colorful boutique designs are back in fashion. To meet the demand, Primochill released its new Compression Tube Reservoir lineup and the Intensifier Liquid Dyes. Primochill has built a reputation by making solid Primoflex LRT tubing. Their the new product lines have grown, adding to Primochill’s portfolio. This brings us today’s article. Today on the test-bench we have the Primochill 240mm CTR reservoir, sporting various fluorescent colors and UV actives. It makes a perfect option for modders and water cooling enthusiasts who also want to dress up their system.
