SilentiumPC Releases Grandis 3 EVO ARGB Dual Fin-stack CPU Cooler

SilentiumPC today released an update to its Grandis line of dual fin-stack (type-D) CPU coolers, with the new Grandis 3 EVO ARGB. The cooler was last updated in 2016 with the Grandis 2 XE1436. The Grandis 3 sees the fins in both stacks do away with the perforations, increasing surface area, and now feature jagged edges. It also has a revised CPU base design with a slightly thicker mirror-finish nickel-plated copper base. The nickel plating now extends to the six 6 mm copper heat pipes (the Grandis 2 uses exposed copper).

The other, more noticeable design change, is the ventilation. The cooler now includes a pair of Pulsar HP ARGB fans. The "push" fan outside the first fin-stack is 120 mm, while the "pull" fan between the two fin-stacks is 140 mm. Both fans feature hydraulic bearings rated for 50,000 hours. The 120 mm "push" fan spins between 250 to 1,600 RPM, while the 140 mm "pull" fan does 250 to 1,400 RPM. The company didn't put out air-flow or noise output figures. The cooler has a thermal capacity of 250 W TDP, and supports several modern CPU socket types including LGA1151, LGA1200, LGA2066, and AM4. Both fans feature standard 3-pin ARGB connections for the lighting.

Cooler Master Outs Hyper 212 ARGB Turbo CPU Cooler

Cooler Master rolled out an updated version of its Hyper 212 Turbo dual-fan tower-type CPU air cooler, the Hyper 212 ARGB Turbo. This cooler is almost identical to the Hyper 212 RGB Turbo and the LED Turbo; except that it packs a pair of Sickleflow 120 ARGB fans with an updated addressable RGB LED setup. The cooler includes an ARGB controller module to which you plug in the 3-pin ARGB cables of both fans, which then lets you cycle between a presets, pulling power from a SATA power connection; although you can directly plug in the fans to any 3-pin ARGB headers.

The heatsink at the heart of the Hyper 212 ARGB Turbo is standard CM 212 issue - an aluminium fin-stack tower with four 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes that make direct contact with the CPU at the base. The "Turbo" moniker is from the fact that two 120 mm fans are included in the package, which ventilate the heatsink in a push-pull arrangement. Each of the two Sickleflow 120 ARGB spinners does 650 - 1800 RPM, pushing 61 CFM of air at top speed, with a noise output of 27 dBA (max). With its fans in place, the cooler measures 120 mm x 109 mm x 155 mm (WxDxH). Among the CPU socket types supported are LGA2066, LGA1200, LGA115x, and AM4. We expect this cooler to be priced around $50.

Update May 7th: Cooler Master confirmed to us that this cooler will initially only be released in the Asia-Pacific region, before making it to Europe, while not being sold in North America.

Noctua Confirms LGA1200 Cooler Compatibility Identical to LGA115x Sockets

Noctua confirmed that Intel's upcoming 10th generation Core "Comet Lake-S" processor's LGA1200 CPU socket has an identical cooler compatibility with LGA115x-series sockets, such as LGA1151, LGA1150, LGA1155, and LGA1156. Most of Noctua's LGA115x-compatible coolers will seamlessly fit on LGA1200 motherboards. A selection of Noctua's older coolers can be made compatible for LGA1200 by requesting Noctua for a free NM-i115x upgrade kit. Some of the really old (think pre-Lynnfield) Noctua coolers can be made to support LGA1200, but are not eligible for the free NM-i115x upgrade kit offer. Yet another list of Noctua coolers, such as those tailor-made for SP3, won't support LGA1200 at all, since they don't support the NM-i115x module. The rule of the thumb hence is "if it supports LGA1151, it will support LGA1200."

The list of Noctua coolers that seamlessly support LGA1200 include NH-C12P SE14, NH-C14, NH-C14S, NH-D15, NH-D15 chromax.black, NH-D15S, NH-D14, NH-L12, NH-L12S, NH-L9i, NH-L9i chromax-black, NH-L9x65, NH-U14S, NH-U12A, NH-U12S, NH-U12S chromax.black, NH-U12P SE2, NH-U9S, NH-D9L, and NH-U9B SE2. The coolers eligible for a free NM-i115x upgrade kit are: NH-C12P, NH-D15 SE-AM4, NH-L9x65 SE-AM4, NH-U12, NH-U12F, NH-U12P, NH-U12P SE1366, NH-U12S SE-AM4, NH-U9, NH-U9F, and NH-U9B. Among the older coolers that support LGA1200 though a NM-i115x module purchased separately, are NH-U12DO (except A3 variant), NH-U12DX, NH-U12DX 1366, NH-U12DX i4, NH-U9DX i4, NH-U9DX 1366, and NH-U9DO.

Abkoncore Rolls Out T404B Hurricane CPU Cooler

Abkoncore today rolled out the T404B Hurricane tower type CPU air cooler under its Cool Storm sub-brand.

Akasa Rolls Out Vegas Chroma CPU Coolers with ARGB Lighting

Akasa rolled out the Vegas Chroma line of top-flow CPU coolers. The coolers come in two variants based on CPU socket types supported. The Vegas Chroma LG supports Intel LGA115x sockets, while the Vegas Chroma AM supports AMD sockets AM4 and AM3+. The cooler's design is an awful lot similar to Intel's stock HSF for desktop processors. An anodized aluminium heatsink with spirally-projecting fins, is ventilated by a 120 mm fan. Airflow from the heatsink ends up ventilating other components around the CPU socket, such as VRM heatsinks, M.2 heatsink, and possibly even memory.

The hydraulic bearing fan takes in 4-pin PWM for its main function, and 3-pin ARGB for the lighting. LEDs are embedded in the hub of the translucent white impeller. In both variants, the fan spins between 500 and 1,800 RPM, pushing up to 51.3 CFM of air, with a noise output of up to 32.5 dBA. Both variants measure 120 mm x 120 mm length and width; but differ in height. The LG variant is 59 mm tall, and the AM variant 63 mm. The LG variant weighs 380 g as it requires a back-plate, while the AM variant tips the scales at 340 g. The company didn't reveal pricing.

MonsterLabo Designs Giant CPU, GPU Cooler Dubbed "The Heart"

MonsterLabo, a team of four people best known for their work on "The First" PC case, are at it again with giant pieces of PC component tech. This time, they took tried and true designs and sizes of CPU and GPU coolers and threw them into an enlargement ray, coming up with what they are calling "The Heart". As it stands, and it stands higher and heavier than all other cooling solutions hitherto, "The Heart" is a cooling solution that extends from your CPU through to your GPU, cooling both with its design of densely stacked fins.

Dimensions is where "The Heart" is bold, with the cooler measuring 200 by 185 mm and 265 mm tall. Adding insult to injury, its weight comes in at 6.6 lbs (3 Kg for us metric system aficionados). MonsterLabo rates the cooler's dissipation capabilities at 100 W CPU load and a 120 W GPU. Adding a 500-RPM 140 mm fan would bump those numbers to 140 W and 160 W, respectively. Mind these numbers apply to cases where "The Heart" is installed into MonsterLabo's own The First case, but differences should be relatively minor in any other case, should you actually be able to install it there. Of course, the combined CPU and GPU design will be very hit or miss - your graphics card will have to be perfectly compatible with the cooler, with its GPU set just right on the PCB for it to be perfectly covered by it. If you want to risk that, you can always drop $200 or €180 for The Heart, in either black or white finishes. Inexpensive for a heart, yes, but extremely expensive as a cooler with expected limited compatibility.

Jonsbo Unveils CR-2000 Twin Fin-stack CPU Cooler

Jonsbo unveiled the CR-2000, a type-D (double fin-stack) CPU cooler.
