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…

Raijintek Does it Again!
It goes without fail. I may not always get a press release from my beloved company. However, if I check back at their site, I’m bound to see an amazing product. This time I stumbled on two great looking CPU coolers, the Mya and Delos. The first is a standard single tower design, with a slim 120mm fan up front. The second uses only 92mm fans, but three of them, and with dual towers. Both of them have fantastic RGB lighting. Continue reading “Raijintek Mya and Delos RBW – Two Fantastic RGB Air CPU Coolers!”

The Social Media News
I love having an Instagram account. Not only is it a great place for up and coming PC builders, but I run across some surprising announcements. Like this one from Arctic Cooling. Looks like their CLC units are getting an update in the form of the Liquid Freezer 2. The key factor here is that Arctic was able to design their own pump. However, the liquid cooler looks like an absolute beast of a CPU cooler as well. In terms of performance and style, it looks like Arctic is doing everything right.

The Arc Reactor Water Block
I kept seeing this stellar looking CPU block at CES. The trouble was, nobody knew where it came from. Didn’t matter who I asked, everyone kept scratching their heads at this crazy looking water block that looked like an Arc Reactor. Iron Man, eat your heart out! This one has RGB!!! However, I’ve finally found the company behind the water block, as well as listings on Amazon. Continue reading “I FINALLY FOUND IT!!! Barrow Arc Reactor Like CPU Water Block”
The RBT Rebel Real
I’ve been a huge fan of the RBT Rebel. Even though the unorthodox design has brought me a fair share of criticism, I have yet to change my opinion. The RBT (pronounced “Rabbit”) came into existence because the creator, Qeric, was trying to make a clicker that you could slide your fingers in. This would allow the user to click up and down. However, this was probably even more painful in gaming and a different use was discovered on accident. Continue reading “Best Gaming Mouse (IMHHO) is Having a Giveaway!”
