If the Fan is Round, Why is it Square?
We’ve seen an elephant fly (twice), but I be done seen ’bout ev’rything when I see a square fan. Enermax did it somehow with the Squa RGB though. Not only did they do it, but the design looks amazing! The unique design on the lighting pattern isn’t complicated, yet I find it extremely “cool” looking. That said, this design also sports a vortex frame. It doesn’t make the fan fly, but it should increase cooling performance.

This Can’t Possibly Work…
When I first saw the MF120, I thought it looked great. That said, I immediately thought the design from Deepcool would lack any serious airflow. Not that I cared. I’d gladly take a cool looking fan over a high performing one if my system was staying cool enough anyways. The frameless design certainly looks awesome.

Ultimate RGB Cooling Performance
It wasn’t long ago that CPU coolers were merely fighting for the performance crown. Today, performance is merely a process of looking for a double tower or a big radiator. The real factor for cooling is style. While the LIQFusion 360 is bound to have good performance, the RGB goodness has to stack up as well. We’re still putting Enermax to the test for performance though. Let’s start taking a closer look at this cooler, right after this word from the company.

Wide Variance Based on Capacity
Viper just launched the VPN100 NVMe drives. We got a sneak peek at these during CES, but now we get the detailed rundown of specs. The speeds are amazing! However, the speeds are just pretty good as well. Why? Because different capacities are changing the max speeds the drive can handle. Also, it’s interesting that the 1 TB option is the fastest of the bunch. Continue reading “Viper VPN100 NVMe SSDs have Interesting, Blazing Speeds”
External Storage Meets Internal Connectivity
In a word of expandable storage, sometimes you forget the simple pleasures of a hot swap bay within your system. They are typically only featured in servers, possibly even only the high-end ones, and don’t often make their way into the mainstream arena. ICY DOCK, however, specializes in all sorts of external and internal docking systems, and have sent us one to check out. It comes in the form of a model dubbed the ExpressCage, or a MB322SP-B to be more specific. We are also going to be looking at an M.2 SATA > SATA 2.5″ adapter which promises zero loss of performance. Let’s dig in…

Do You Even RGB, bro?
Given that we are currently in an RGB craze, it pretty much goes without saying that you are able to find just about anything to add some of the craze to your non-RGB components without much effort. SilverStone have sent us a their RGB fan grill that comes in both 120 and 140mm varieties. The name isn’t necessarily targeted at the gaming segment as it doesn’t blast 1337GAMING1!11!1 in your face, which makes for a nice change. It is literally called what it is – the 120mm RGB fan grille. Let’s check it out…

Adding NF-A12x25 Fans
The Noctua NH-U12A updates what is already a strong legacy for CPU coolers. The original single tower design has great cooling for it’s size and silent operation. Recently though, Noctua updated their fan lineup with the NF-A12x25 series that dramatically improved airflow and static pressure. In my testing of the fans, I had two clear thoughts about them afterwards. First, they needed to be on the CPU coolers, and then we needed a 140mm version. The first thought is a reality.

No More Leaks…Ever?
You don’t need personal experience. Just read a few reviews on Newegg, and you’ll quickly discover the dangers of liquid cooling. The beauty of a closed-loop-cooler (CLC) is that it’s affordable, easy to install, and maintenance free. However, a sealed system is susceptible to pressure issues. Deepcool is coming to the rescue by launching Anti-Leak technology. Continue reading “Deepcool Launches Anti-Leak Tech for CLCs”
Should you Custom Loop?
Custom Water Cooling loops are the best. They come at a price though, literally. The parts not only cost more, but the loop takes a bit more effort to assemble. Swiftech is trying to help in a huge way here. The Boreas Water Cooling kit comes with all the parts needed to start your first loop. This at least takes the guess work on knowing what you’ll need, and Swiftech has updated the kit with some of their latest designs. Let’s see how this works for us, right after a statement from the company. Continue reading “Swiftech Boreas Water Cooling Kit Review”
RGB + Samsung B-die A2 = Winning!?
Are you looking for performance? Are you possibly looking for style? Maybe both. GeIL looks to set some of the competition aside with a slightly less traditional look whilst still retaining that performance we all crave. I’ve been informed that there’s an added bonus to these Super Luce modules that’ll help with the performance aspect…
