Here at ProClockers, we take computer cooling seriously. We have a growing library of Cooling Reviews including cpu cooler reviews, notebook cooler reviews, and computer case fan reviews. Cooling is a crucial part of overclocking a system, so we will be sure to let you know what to buy and what to avoid when cooling your new rig. You can also find reviews on fan controllers, water cooling kits, gpu cooling, and other computer cooling accessories.
Just a few months ago we review some new fans from Noctua containing a ton of features but Noctua with their never ending innovation has brought us even more new fans with more features to market. Just what are these features? We will get to that a little later in this review. So be prepared for better and more ways to get performance up and noise down.
We finally got a chance to take a look at our first kit from a well-known water cooling manufacturer. XSPC has sent over their RayStorm 750 RS240 kit. This however isn’t their highest end water cooling kit but it does offer one of their most popular water blocks, larger tubing than what is offered in an AIO, a stronger pump and the ability to customize like adding more water blocks and radiators. The XSPC RayStorm 750 RS240 kit will give you full water cooling customization experience.
The GAMMAXX S40 isn’t DeepCool’s biggest and meanest cooler but it is geared to be one of their better sellers. Reason being is that it is categorized as a budget cooler aimed for users looking for a decent upgrade from the stock OEM cooler that comes with AMD and Intel processors. We will be taking a tour of the DeepCool GAMMAXX S40 and see if it is worth your hard earned money.
Thermaltake’s newest CPU cooler consist of four cooler models for now and the line-up is called the NiC or Non-Interference Cooler series. The reason behind the name is that the coolers allow for the builder or end user to fill all of their motherboard DIMM slots. This is something that is often not possible with most coolers because of their massive size. With that in mind, you can be at ease to know the series allows for maximum ram slot usage.
Today on spotlight, we have a new cooler from SilverStone. The cooler comes in the form of the AR03 from the Argon family of coolers. The SilverStone Argon AR03 was built to give a higher performance low-cost solution for your new processor. The largest of the Argon has six large 6mm heat pipes that come in direct contact with the CPU. Is it enough to outperform some of the other coolers we have tested lately? Let's find out!
Today on tap for you we have the new Cougar Dual-X 120mm LED cooling fan. Over the years, we brought to you several fans used for everything from general purpose to having one sole purpose.
Now that we have lain out what it takes to be a top air-cooler in this business, the next step is putting it all together. We see these characteristics in the new HE01, well on paper anyways. But like everything that comes through the Pro-Clocker lab, we have to put it on the bench to really see if it measures up and in order to see where this cooler stack up against the best ones we have ever tested. So, we will be testing it against the closed loop water-cooling units we have tested just recently.
