Am I weird for thinking that these coolers look pretty good? I'm so tired of seeing CPU air coolers that are painted black and/or have a bunch of RGB and plastic. It is actually nice to see bright copper fins and fan guards for once.

I might just go with an all-out industrial aesthetic for my next PC build.

Anyway, I'm surprised to see vapor chambers on some of these AM5 coolers. I've never seen a vapor chamber cooler for a mainstream CPU socket before. Neat!

They're server and possibly workstation coolers. Not going to be the best coolers out there and the fan noise is going to drive you nuts.

NGL had the same thought. Tower coolers are boring as hell. And nobody makes C-shape coolers anymore. But thinking more iirc server heatsinks can get away with being smaller since the fans on the server racks blow air like it's nobody's business. That's why pro cards from AMD and Nvidia are strictly two-slot.

Wow, it's a typical enclosure forced airflow heatsink for 1U, 2U cases. Looks like standard Sunon or AVC.

Such wow. Much impressed.

I can't describe it. It more of a raw, animalistic attraction.

No. Function-over-form has always looked good to some people, myself included.

I loathe cosmetic, bolt-on plastic decoration that adds nothing but cost/weight/airflow obstruction and modern CPU/GPU coolers are plagued with the stuff. As if that wasn't bad enough, most of the CPU/GPU cooling manufacturers are Asian and their cultural design language is loud and garish compared to my preference for sleek minimalism. So even within the subset of "unnecessary bolt-on cosmetic plastic crap" most of the manufacturers make that shit even bigger and louder and more garish in some sick oneupmanship competition that results in ever-larger, ever-uglier products.

I think you're missing the point. The point is that they are the first coolers spotted for an as-of-yet unreleased future socket (which according to rumors will be switching from PGA to LGA), giving some indications of size and compatibility with previous coolers.

Damn what abominations of coolers are those... Those designs make Noctua's brown and beige fans look like colorful unicorns.

RGB can die a quick and painful death.

I like the clean, sleek look myself. That was the big selling point of the Cooler Master Cosmos 1000 tower I had years ago. Nice, clean, sleek looking. Too bad the thing weighed over 30 pounds just sitting there empty and the fact it has pretty poor air flow.

Does anyone remember or had the ZALMAN RESERATOR 1 Fanless Water Cooling System?

Which is why I went for a NH-U12A. My black NH-D15S looked awful after dust managed to gather on it.

They're not for your PC, they go in servers like this, and all rackmount server coolers look similar to these.



With the exception of the two tower coolers, these wouldn't even fit on typical ATX/mATX/mITX motherboard because of component interference around the socket, most likely. Even if they did fit, the RAM would be directly blocking half the fan because consumer boards use different layouts.

Noctua's brown and beige fans are a sign of quality and much better than RGB clown vomit fans. Can't change my mind.

The news article says the OEM/manufacturer is Cool Server, so no.

glad to see the industry is still moving forward despite the shortages. I thought for sure we would see excuses about delaying next gen stuff.
