Raijintek Intros the Leto Tower-type CPU Cooler

Raijintek today introduced its Leto line of tower-type CPU coolers. Available in three variants based on the color of the LED illumination - Leto W (white LED), Leto R (red LED), and Leto B (blue LED), the cooler features a conventional tower-type design, with a matte black anodized aluminium fin-stack. The base is made of anodized aluminium too, although three 8 mm-thick copper heat pipes make direct contact with the CPU. The heat pipes feature black nickel-plating, and are pressed against the aluminium fins using a patented process that lacks solder.

The included 120 mm fan features a custom-design frame, and sleeve-bearing. It takes in 4-pin PWM input, spins between 800 to 1,800 RPM, pushing up to 67 CFM of air, with a noise-output of up to 29 dBA. Rubber mounts hold the fan onto the heatsink, which supports a second 120 mm fan for push-pull ventilation. Measuring 122 mm x 76 mm x 157 mm, the heatsink weighs 570 g. The Raijintek Leto supports most modern CPU socket types, including AM4, AM3(+), FM2(+), LGA2011/v3, LGA115x, and LGA1366. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Arctic Announces the Freezer 33 Series Semi-Passive CPU Coolers

ARCTIC announces its new Freezer 33 Series. The high-performance semi passive CPU coolers Freezer 33 and Freezer 33 CO are the successor models of the Freezer 32 series. They are equipped with PWM controlled 120 mm cooling fans and offset heat pipes to ensure optimal heat dissipation. The low footprint of the Freezer 33 avoids interference with the RAM, even if there are two fans used. Fast and easy to install and extremely reliable, the mounting system is compatible with Intel and the new AMD Ryzen AM4 socket.

Semi passive cooling makes the Freezer 33 Series very efficient and extra quiet. During simple applications, such as creating documents, the CPU is cooled passively. The F12 PWM fan only powers up at a higher load, starting at 40 % PWM. In this way, an optimal cooling capacity at a low noise level is guaranteed. The Freezer 33 CO is specifically designed for continuous operation. The Japanese dual ball bearing, used in the "CO" version, reduces rotational friction considerably, is significantly less sensitive to dust and high temperature and hence up to 5 times more durable than other bearings.
