Thermaltake today announced its new LifeCool Notebook Cooling Pad, and it takes but a single glance to conclude that laptop coolers have never looked so funky. That's okay as long as it works as advertised, and towards that end, Thermaltake promises the LifeCool will play nice with all notebooks between 10 inches to 17 inches in size, which means your swank 17-inch desktop replacement is fair game. The LifeCool is constructed with a front white metal mesh and a glassy plastic cover. There's a 120mm blue LED fan that's adjustable from 800RPM to 1500RPM via an on/off control knob. It has a skid proof... Read more...
NZXT is taking its Tempest Chassis series to a new level with the announcement of the 410 and 410 Elite. Like their predecessors, these new chassis promise aggressive airflow to meet the needs of overclockers. There are two touch powered 120mm fans in the front of the case that feature removable filters. The cases also offer an extra-large honeycomb mesh design and dual radiator support. With the Tempest 410 Elite you’ll get an acrylic side panel and other new features. NZXT Expands Tempest Legacy with 410 and 410 Elite Mid Tower Chassis The ‘Airflow King’ reemerges with advanced...

Are there any fan aficionados in the crowd? Anyone? That's okay, because even if you don't fancy yourself a fanatical fan of, uh, fans, MSI makes some mighty interesting claims about its exclusive Propeller Blade technology that all cooling aficionados should read, which we suspect represents a much larger number. In a document explaining its Propeller Blade technology, MSI claims the unique design lends itself to 20 percent more airflow and wider vent angles compared to standard fan designs. The end result is a reduction in temperatures of up to 21 degrees, thereby extending the life of the hardware,... Read more...
Asetek and cooling, two names that seem to always go together. Now, you can add a third: PNY. That company has teamed up with Asetek in order to "revolutionize" graphics card liquid cooling, with the goal to deliver liquid-cooled, high-end graphics cards that far outperform equivalent air cooled models graphically, thermally and acoustically. The resulting extreme performance PNY graphics cards will come out-of-the box with an Asetek sealed water cooler already attached, making the solution very simple to install, maintenance-free and extremely reliable. In other words, PNY will be using Asetek's... Read more...
You don't want to be the one everybody points and laughs at for using a reference cooler on a high end graphics card, do you? Maybe that's a little melodramatic; realistically, reference coolers aren't all that bad. But if you dream of a cooler running GPU and faster clocks, third-party cooling solutions are the way to go. HIS Digital announced today that it's gone and slapped its IceQ cooler on AMD's Radeon HD 6970 graphics card. According to HIS, you can expect up to 23C lower temps over the reference cooler AMD recommends. The IceQ boasts a 'Black Hole Impeller' design that draws cool air from... Read more...
A high-five is in order for Corsair for more than doubling the warranty period on its Hydra Series H60 CPU cooler from two years to five years, ensuring that there's at least one component you won't have to worry about for the life of your system (unless you keep your systems for more than five years, in which, it's time to upgrade, playa!). And don't go pounding sand if you already purchased an H60 cooler, the extended warranty applies to you, too. "The new, longer warranty reflects the care that Corsair has taken with design and construction of the H60, as well as the choice of high-quality materials,"... Read more...
Novel Concepts introduced a new heat sink that it is calling the “world’s thinnest air-cooled heat sink.” The new ThinSink is thinner than a credit card. It is capable of cooling 25 times more heat per cubic centimeter than today's best microprocessor heat sinks. ThinSink was designed to fit inside small electronic devices, particularly notebooks, monitors, and tablets. Keeping in mind that power is limited on these mobile electronic devices, Novel Concepts has designed the ThinSink to consume only 0.031 watts of electricity (up to 2 days on an AAA battery). Novel Concepts Announces... Read more...
It's not quite as sophisticated or complex as some of the liquid cooling options we've seen lately, but there's still a monster market out there for standard case fans. NZXT knows a thing or two about the hardcore gaming PC sect, and they're introducing this week a new FS-200 LED fan lineup to provide powerful gusts with no noise. And in order to make modders happy, these are available with green, blue or red LED lighting. Each FS-200 Silent LED Fan contains their own controller, but also comes packaged with a splitter allowing the Phantom’s LED switch to support two fans simultaneously.... Read more...
Earlier in the week, Asetek showcased a prototype GPU cooler that did an excellent job of proving downright impressive. Now, Maingear is looking to do something similar. The company, which is best known for their pre-fab custom PCs, has teamed with CoolIT to engineer cooler, quieter and cheaper cooling systems for their desktops. The solution has a simple name: EPIC. EPIC stands for Enhanced Performance InterCooler, and there will be three different ones -- the SHIFT desktop offers the exclusive EPIC 180, the F131 sports the EPIC 140 and the Vybe gets the EPIC 120. The MAINGEAR EPIC 180 liquid... Read more...
When it comes to enhancing PC performance, no tweak or mod is too small to consider. Asetek is well-known for their dabbling in liquid cooling, and the company announced earlier in the year that they would soon be releasing a CPU cooler. Now, they've assembled a video to showcase the liquid cooled PNY XLR8 GTX prototype, and it's looking mighty impressive. You may wonder if your GPU needs a cooler; if that's you, it probably doesn't. But if you're the kind of person who can't stop overclocking, well, you know you're already licking your chops. Have a look at the video if you're okay with a tease... Read more...
MSI sure does seem infatuated with its Twin Frozr III cooling solution, which has been appearing on a number of the board maker's graphics cards. That's not a bad thing, considering MSI claims big temp reductions due in part to the cooler's propeller blade technology. The newest card to get the Twin Frozr III makeover is the N570GTX Power Edition. MSI claims its Twin Frozr III cooler provides 20 percent more airflow to the N570GTX, chilling the GPU by 18C over reference, and reducing fan noise by 7.7dB. Cooler and quieter? That's what we calling having your cake and eating it too. In addition to... Read more...
There was a time when pre-built machines mostly shipped with stock cooling solutions. Some still do, but in the realm of boutique system builders, third-party coolers are now the norm, and in particular those by Asetek. Case in point, Velocity Micro just announced that it's equipping its Raptor Signature Edition build with Asetek's 570LC self-contained liquid cooling solution. "One of the biggest challenges when building any ultra-performance desktop is dissipating the heat generated by the CPU, especially when overclocking. Essentially, heat is your enemy," said Randy Copeland, President and CEO... Read more...
Antec announced its next-generation high-performance CPU cooler in the form of the Antec KÜHLER H2O 620. Antec worked together with Asetek to develop this easy-to-install liquid CPU cooling solution that claims to outperform stock CPU coolers up to 20 percent under full load. The Antec KÜHLER H2O 620 targets mainstream PC hardware and gaming enthusiasts who want sealed liquid CPU cooling. The KÜHLER H2O 620 will be available at the end of this month for an estimated price of $69.95. Antec Announces Newest Next-Generation CPU Cooler: KÜHLER H2O 620 Antec’s KÜHLER H2O... Read more...
If you live in the northern part of the U.S., nature is doing the bulk of the cooling these days. But what about inside of your PC case? Unless you're funneling snow into there (safely, if that's even possible), the area in and around your CPU/GPU is probably still toasty. If you've been looking to overclock, but need some better cooling options before diving in, Asetek has exactly what you need. The company is today introducing new 92mm liquid CPU coolers, described as such. The 545LC is a single exhaust port, single-CPU cooler that supports high performance gaming PCs and workstations, utilizing... Read more...
