The Scythe NINJA 2 CPU Cooler is an amazing cooler. At first glance there's no mistaking that this is one massive cooler. The heatsink weighs 705g without the fan, with the fan installed it's 820g. The CPU Thermal Design Power or Thermal Design Point specification for this cooler is 65W without the fan and 130W with the fan. The heatsink is a combination of aluminum and copper. The large aluminum fins connected by copper heatpipes which connect into a solid base. This nickel plated copper base is extremely smooth which allows excellent contact between it and the CPU.

Scythe NINJA Copper CPU Cooler Video Video Review

Review #916 reviewed Sunday, August 23rd, 2009 - 1 Comments

The Scythe NINJA Copper CPU Cooler one very large cooler! The heatsink weighs in at 1015 grams and if the fan is installed that adds another 115 grams. This is unquestionable heavy but not a big concern because of the way it gets installed using a motherboard back plate. It has an all copper heatsink with many fins. These fins are large and they are connected to long heatpipes which meet into a solid base. Watch the video to find out more and check out the bloopers at the end.

The Swiftech H20-120 Compact Water Cooling combines the waterblock and pump together and the radiator and reservoir together. This simplifies the traditional four-component loop into just two-components. This reduces the space required for installation and it tremendously simplifies the installation process over most water cooling kits.

While this kit will not outperform some of the four-component water cooling systems, it will outperform air coolers by a long shot.

Cooler Master Aquagate S1 Water Cooling System Video Review

Review #840 reviewed Thursday, August 13th, 2009 - 0 Comments

Many people are intimated by water cooling because they don't want liquid spilling all over their hardware components. This is a concern, especially if you are piecing together a water cooling system yourself. If you chose to do that, you have to be 100% sure that it's not going to leak. This is not so much of a concern with the Cooler Master Aquagate S1 Water Cooling System because everything is pre-connected. This kit does perform reasonable well, it's affordable and installation is extremely simple. The only pitfall to this kit is the small pump which makes an annoying loud buzzing sound.

This makes sense because processors are getting faster and more effective cooling devices are required to cool them. The Ultra ChillTec Thermo Electric CPU Cooler performs very well, even on a highly overclocked CPU. It has a clear advantage over standard coolers.
