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”
Wait! Are they brown and beige?
Absolutely not! The Asus Ryujin 240 and 360 CPU coolers talked Noctua into using black fans!!! I don’t know how they managed to do it, but they also understood something very important about CLCs. The best way to boost cooling performance is through airflow. In all fairness the fans are the IndustrialPPCs, which Noctua introduced quite some time ago. What Asus tackled head on was getting the best airflow at the lowest noise possible. However, they didn’t stop at just having a Noctua fan to increase airflow.

Can We AM4 it?
The Enermax LIQTech TR4 II is meant for AMD’s monster chip. The huge heat spreader on Threadripper can dwarf the contact plate on many CPU coolers. On the other hand, I wonder if the bigger copper block can provide better cooling? There is only one way to find out and it’s going to require some modding. Get ready for a fun ride, but first a statement from Enermax. Continue reading “Enermax LIQTech TR4 II CPU Cooler Review”
Intro to LIQTech TR4 II
With Threadripper Gen 2 on the horizon, CPU cooling is becoming a subject of importance. Enermax introduced the LIQTech TR4 as a solution for the large IHS on the chip. Now, AMD isn’t the only company with a redesign. The LIQTech TR4 II can support 500W+ TDP of cooling, which should help with overclocking as well. The pump has a 450 l/h flow rate, a huge amount for a CLC unit. All around, the features are great for Threadripper, but I theorize that these same features could improve cooling performance for all CLCs.

New RGB Vibe on Castle
I’ve long been a fan of the nuclear reactor style pump on the Captain CPU Coolers from Deepcool. Part of me misses that, but the other part of me really likes the design on the new Castle cooler. If there’s one thing that Deepcool gets right regardless, it’s their ability to make something that looks unique on the market. This latest CLC design not only has great looking lighting, but it comes with both 240mm and 280mm radiator options. In my opinion, 280mm is the perfect balance of noise and cooling performance.
