Coming in a dual aluminum fin tower design, the cooler is equipped with six 6mm nickel-plated heatpipes, a 140mm PWM fan that operates at 500 to 1200 RPM (Low) or 500 to 2000 RPM (High) and supports for both Intel (LGA2011/1156/1155/1366/775) and AMD (AM2/AM3/FM1/FM2) processors.
Sony has developed a prototype of a silicon and carbon-based thermal seet that promises to meet, if not exceed, the thermal conductivity of standard thermal grease.
Tech-On reports that a new product shown last week in Tokyo by Sony could solve these issues. The company revealed a prototype of a silicon and carbon-based thermal sheet currently known as "EX20000C" that measures 0.3-2.0mm thick with a thermal resistance of 0.4-0.2K cm2/W and a compressive load of about 1-3kgf/cm2 -- five or six times the effectiveness of Sony's previous solution.
EX20000C supposedly meets, if not exceeds the thermal conductivity of standard thermal grease. A show floor exhibit compared the sheet's effectiveness with a conventional setup and it managed to reduce the processor's temperatures by an additional three degrees Celsius. In addition to eliminating cleanup and preventing overapplication, the sheets last longer than paste because they don't degrade.
Prolimatech has introduced a blue edition of its Megahalems Rev. B CPU cooler. The cooler has the same specifications as the original model, but will likely cost a little bit more than the original's $70 price tag.
As another site mentioned it is alomost the same color as Gigabyte uses on its motherboards. Most of the cooler's 88 stainless steel fins are blue, with the top fins on each of the two stacks retaining a chrome finish. The six 6 mm-thick heat pipes passing through them are made of nickel-plated copper, while most metal parts of the retention modules are colored black.
Deepcool is about to release the Aeolus Big Frost, a new HSF that looks like a simplified version of the company's Assassin cooler. The heatsink features two aluminium fin arrays, six 6mm thick copper heatpipes, a copper base and two 120mm fans in push-pull configuration.
The heatsink measures 126 x 136 x 159 mm, weighing 1,109 g (including fans). The fan pushing "fresh" air through the first fin stack is configured to spin at speeds of up to 1,300 RPM, with noise levels as high as 22.6 dBA, while the fan pulling air and conveying it to the second fin stack spins at speeds ranging in 900-1,500 RPM, with 21.4 to 32.1 dBA noise levels.
The Big Frost supports a full range of CPU socket types available in the market today, including Intel LGA2011, LGA1155/LGA1156, LGA1366, LGA775, AMD AM3+/AM3/AM2+/AM2, and FM2/FM1. In China, the cooler is expected to sell for 200 RMB (US $32).
Thermal Solutions specialist GELID Solutions launches the cutting-edge "GC-Extreme" thermal compound with a net content of 10g. It contains the same material as the multi-winning "GC-Extreme 3.5g" and varies in net content only.
In comparison to the other compounds in the market the "GCExtreme" breaks all records and is most suitable for overclocking. Ultimate heat conductivity makes the "GC-Extreme" the leader of all thermal compounds. As with the other compounds of GELID Solutions the "GC-Extreme" is non-electrical conductive, non-corrosive, no bleeding and non-curing. The "GC-Extreme 10g" comes with a GELID applicator which enables an easier application. As a product of the GAMER product line the "GC-Extreme" contains 10g.
Beside the "GC-Extreme 10g" GELID Solutions introduces the "GC-Supreme" for professional users. The "GC-Supreme" is made from the purest thermal conducting materials and offers superb thermal conduction. Thanks to nano scale produced new ultra-fine molecular structure the "GC-Supreme" fills spaces more effectively than conventional materials. In comparison to other thermal compounds the "GCSupreme" provides an easier application especially with the GELID applicator. Coupled with excellent thermal conductivity for an attractive price this thermal compound makes the best choice for professionals. As a product of the SILENT product line the "GC-Supreme" contains 7g.
The "GC-Extreme 10g" and "GC-Supreme" thermal compounds are available now for a MSRP of USD 25.99 / EUR 19.99 and USD 7.2 / EUR 5.7.
Prolimatech, the master of cooling is going a step further after the success of the Prolimatech Megahalems by presenting another revolution in CPU cooling with the limited edition Prolimatech Black Series Genesis. Besides the immaculate quality - which is present across their entire product line-up - the Black Genesis sets new standards in cooling capability and cool looks.
Prolimatech continues the trend set by the Megahalems and Super Mega by utilising two separate towers, but instead of placing them next to each other, they have been rearranged for maximum performance. The large array of cooling fins can hold up to three 120 or 140 mm fans, two of which can be installed right out of the box with the included mounting materials. Besides keeping the CPU cool, the construction allows for direct air flow across critical areas like the memory and power phases of the system.
Due to the innovative construction, Prolimatech manages to raise the bar and cool down the CPU even more. Adding to the excellent performance, Prolimatech has included additional black mounting screws to add further contact pressure, which translates into even lower operational temperatures. The use of these screws is intended for experienced users, which aim to get the most out of the cooling solution, as the pressure surpasses the Intel specifications.
Overclockers will be happy to hear that Prolimatech continues the trend and allows for complete choice of fans, as none are supplied with the cooler. This enables every user, regardless of their preferences or needs, to select the right models to equip the Black Genesis. Even when only using a single 120 or 140 mm fan, the Black Genesis manages to cool the CPU and keep the noise level at a minimum.
The Prolimatech Black Genesis also features broad compatibility as it ships with an AMD mounting kit intended for all modern sockets like AM2, AM2+ and AM3. Intel users will also be able to mount the cooler with the included kit for Socket 775, 1155, 1156, 1366 and 2011. To enable the most efficient transfer of heat between the CPU and Black Genesis cooler, Prolimatech supplies their high-performance PK-1 thermal paste, while a sturdy backplate guarantees a stable hold, taking the strain off the mainboard and socket.
The Prolimatech Black Series Genesis is available for pre-order with a price tag of
