ID-Cooling Rolls Out the IS-50X Low-profile CPU Cooler Capable of Handling 130W TDP

ID-Cooling rolled out the IS-50X, a low-profile CPU cooler capable of handling thermal loads of up to 130 Watts, with a height of just 75 mm. The cooler features a "C-type" heatsink design. Five 6 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes make direct contact with the CPU at the base, and guide heat through an aluminium fin-stack that's arranged along the plane of the motherboard. The fins are slightly broader towards the portion of the stack that's directly above the CPU socket, and thinner along the periphery, to offer clearance to your motherboard's memory and CPU VRM areas.

A 15 mm-thick 120 mm PWM fan ventilates the fin-stack. This fan spins between 600 to 1,600 RPM, pushing up to 53.6 CFM of air, at a noise output ranging between 13.8 to 30.2 dBA. Measuring 122 mm x 120 mm x 75 mm (with the fan installed), the cooler weighs 385 g. Among the CPU socket types supported are LGA115x, AM4, AM3(+), and FM2(+). The company didn't reveal pricing.

X2 Rolls Out the CoolStorm T402B Spider Red CPU Cooler

Spire's gamer-centric brand, X2 Products, unveiled the CoolStorm T402B Spider Red CPU cooler. Featuring a conventional tower-type design, the cooler features an all-black aluminium fin-stack, complete with black anodized heat-pipes. The cooler's four 6 mm-thick copper heat-pipes make direct contact with the CPU at the base, conveying heat through the fin-stack. The fin-stack has jagged edges to increase turbulence and heat-dissipation. Ventilating it is a 120 mm fan that has two red plastic accents along the black fan-frame. The impeller isn't illuminated.

The fan features a hydraulic bearing that's rated for 100,000 hours, takes in 4-pin PWM input, spins between 800 to 2,000 RPM, and pushes between 10 and 45.21CFM of air, with a noise output ranging between 20 to 33 dBA. The cooler can handle thermal loads of up to 135 W, and hence gives HEDT sockets a miss. The only CPU socket types it supports are AM4, AM3(+), FM2(+), and Intel LGA115x. With its fan in place, the cooler measures 123 mm x 73 mm x 156.5 mm (WxDxH), and weighs a little over 250 g. Backed by a 2-year warranty, it is priced at USD $45.

Cryorig to Launch Graphene-Coated C7G CPU Cooler?

As of yet unannounced, it seems that Cryorig may be preparing to launch a graphene-coated version of their popular low-profile C7Cu cooler. Cryorig's own website has a product page up for the part, which makes use of graphene's qualities in both durability, lightness and thermal conductivity to increase performance in the part of the market it arguably matters the most - small form factor. This could signal an improvement in heat dissipation capabilities for this small cooler. The C7 Cu version, in full copper, has a 115W TDP specification, so perhaps the C7G will improve in that front.

The C7G FAQ isn't uploaded as of yet, which speaks to the unannounced nature of the product. The only thing we have to go by, for now, is the image for the product on Cryorig's product page, and the users' manual, which while not giving away much in terms of specifications, but does show that there are a pair of mounting clips included for users to mount their 90 mm fans - whether in 14 mm or 25 mm depth.

DeepCool Intros Castle 240 RGB V2 Cooler with Anti-leak Tech Inside

DeepCool today introduced the Gamer Storm Castle 240 RGB V2 all-in-one closed-loop liquid CPU cooler with an innovation that minimizes the risk of coolant leakages caused due to environmental air-pressure fluctuations. Called DeepCool Anti-leak Tech Inside, the innovation is an elastic pressure-relief bag inside the radiator's reservoir, which has an opening on one end to the air outside. When there is a pressure differential between the air outside and the coolant inside, the elastic bag either contracts or expands, adjusting the reservoir's volume to normalize pressure. DeepCool also extended the design-goal of leakage prevention to the coolant tube design, by using IIR (isobutyline-isopropylene rubber), a material used in slick aircraft tyres that has high elasticity to cope with touchdown. The inner tube is reinforced by fiber-weave sleeving.

This aside, the Castle 240 RGB V2 looks and performs like the original. Its design includes a somewhat tall, cylindrical pump-block with an RGB LED diffuser up top, plumbed to a 240 mm x 120 mm radiator with two included RGB LED fans. The pump's rated noise is 17.8 dBA at its fixed speed of 2,500 RPM. Each of the included fans spins between 500 to 1,800 RPM, pushing up to 69.34 CFM of air, with a noise output under 30 dBA. DeepCool includes retention modules for AMD sockets TR4 and AM4; and Intel sockets LGA2066 and LGA115x. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Glued Die on ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Affects Some Aftermarket Cooling Solutions

Update April 4th: This post has been corrected based on new information provided by ASUS, EKWB, as well as other parties. The original story mentioned a silent change to the glue used on the PCB which, as we now believe, is no longer the case in that ASUS is not to blame.

Update April 5th: ASUS has confirmed to us that there has been no PCB change (in terms of components and their heights), it's only a problem of tolerances due to the glue being liquid during production.

ASUS has glued the GPU die to the PCB for many generations, which helps ensure contact and avoids microfractures in the solder balls from physical force or thermal expansion. The nature of this glue, typically an epoxy resin, means that aftermarket cooling solutions, such as full cover or die-only water blocks, have to accommodate for this around the holes around the die. Previous graphics cards had no issue here, because the mounting holes were far away from the GPU die. With RTX 2080 Ti and its super large GPU chip this has changed, and there's only a few millimeters of space left. If a waterblock uses wider standoffs than the design merits, or if the glue spreads out farther than intended, it can result in poor/inconsistent contact between waterblock and the GPU, which in turn can lead to worse thermal performance than ideal.

This time, EK Waterblocks alerted us that the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 Ti had poor contact and fitting issues with their GPU water block for the same, as seen in images below provided by their customer T. Hilal, which interferes with the four standoffs surrounding the package. EK recommends removing these standoffs to ensure a good fit and thermal paste spread, and this does not affect water block performance much in their internal testing. In previous such occasions, EK and others have had to come up with a second version of the block for added compatibility, however it remains to be seen if the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 Ti will merit a similar treatment this time round. As an external reference, Phanteks has separately confirmed to us that their water block remains compatible.

Spire Intros LCG-HSR Line of AIO Liquid CPU Coolers

Thermalright Intros Silver Arrow IB-E Extreme Rev. B CPU Cooler

Thermalright today rolled out the Silver Arrow IB-E Extreme Rev. B CPU cooler. Thermalright has made changes to the design to make sure the fin-stack is slightly offset from the base in directions that free up headroom near the memory area and topmost expansion slot of a typical mainstream-desktop motherboard, giving you easy access to the memory and M.2 slots closest to the CPU socket.

Heat drawn from a heavier mirror-finished nickel-plated copper base is conveyed to the fin-stacks by eight 6 mm-thick heat pipes. The lavish use of heavy copper used in this heatsink make it tip the scales at 850 g, without fans. With both its fans installed, the Silver Arrow IB-E Extreme Rev. B can handle thermal loads of up to 320W. Each of the two included TY-143 140 mm fans spin between 600 to 2,500 RPM, pushing 31.4 to 130 CFM of air, with a noise output ranging between 21 to 45 dBA.
