Kingpin F1 Extreme Dark Cooling Pot Review

Overclockers have always been a bit extreme – we take hardware many people are perfectly satisfied with and then push every last MHz we can out of it within our cooling limits. Some choose air cooling, some choose water cooling. Then there are the crazy people. Read More

Corsair Hydro Series H100 Review

The H100 is currently the top of the line offering from Corsair in their Hydro series which is a low cost liquid cooling (LCLC) product line. Water cooling is far superior to even the best air coolers on the market, but will the H100 be worthy of being put into the same category as custom loops? Read More

Noctua NH-D14 Heatsink Review

It’s due time to reexamine Noctua NH-D14 heatsink, widely considered one of the best air coolers on the market, with the powerful (and hot) 2600k under the hood. Read More

Prolimatech Genesis Heatsink Review

Next on my heatsink test system is a relatively new offering from Prolimatech, the Genesis. Instead of the usual vertical single or double stack tower style heatsink you normally see on the market, Prolimatech took a different approach with this heatsink.

Thermalright HR-02 Macho Review

Muddocktor takes a look at the Thermalright HR-02 Macho heatsink. This is a revamped version of a heatsink introduced last year, modified and with a new price point. The original HR-02 came out several months ago and was aimed at the silent computing market, because it was designed to be fan optional while still dealing with the heat of an overclocked processor. Mudd examines if Thermalright’s engineers did their job properly while meeting a lower price point… Read More

Thermalright MUX-120 Black Heatsink Review

Once again, I am looking at another high performance heatsink from Thermalright. They have been a consistent manufacturer of high performance air cooling solutions for quite a few years now and still are counted as one of the “go-to” manufacturers when considering the purchase of a high performance cooling solution for your computer’s processor. Today, I will be looking at the MUX-120 Black, which is a mid priced cooling solution that comes standard with a PWM fan and mounting hardware for both AMD and Intel systems. We will see today if this cooler is worth the $55 plus shipping that I paid for it or if there are more cost effective solutions out there in the bang/buck bracket. Read More
