When it comes to all-in-one liquid coolers for CPUs, Corsair has been at the forefront of the market since the beginning. That's because they consistently deliver excellent cooling capabilities, compiled with innovative designs. They're at it again with a…
EK has been at the forefront of custom PC water cooling solutions since 2003. As one of the early pioneers and today as one of the industry’s best, EK has had a long history of products for the custom PC water cooling market. Today we are privileged to be able to review one of their coolers from a new line of Budget-Oriented AIO coolers they have brought to market. Journey with us as we see what this line of AIO coolers has to offer.
We know and appreciate Cooler Master for making obsession-worthy cases and powerful coolers, so when they approached us about a new product release, we were excited, to say the least. Released back in 2016, the Iconic MasterAir Maker 8 became an instant success with its powerful cooling capabilities and also an integrated cover plate to hide the cooling hardware. Cooler Master is always pushing the limits and they've released several new coolers since the Maker 8. Today we have the pleasure of testing the newest iteration from that classic platform, the MasterAir MA610P ARGB. It promises to have the foundation cooling capabilities of the Maker 8, but it's updated and modernized for current demands. Join us as we check out this cooler and put it to the test on our Z490 test bench.
Who better to design a great case fan than the innovative and forward-thinking case manufacturer InWin. InWin uses their R&D muscles to make spectacular showpiece cases that are the highlight of the show at Computex. So when they offer us to look at their astronomically nice looking ‘Saturn ASN120’ and ‘ASN140’ ARGB case fans, We said yes. They sent over a nice pack of 3x120 and 3x140 addressable RGB fan kits. The kits are a great way to get the best of the new features and technology these fans support. For someone as cable management challenged as I, this is a great opportunity. Let's see how they fair.
Today I bring a new product from Cooler Master, based off their already extensive AIO range of products, the Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240 Mirror on the surface looks to compliment any RGB enthusiast's build but how is it at cooling? Let's see what it's all about! The product includes their latest 3rd generation dual chamber pump to ensure good coolant flow consistently through the AIO. Cooler Master chose to go with a black colored product, which will fit stealthily in any build apart from the LEDs which will be visually pleasing for the RGB crowd. As with most AIOs the radiator material is made of aluminium while the block/pump cold plate is made from copper. The pump included in this product is made to last at least 70000 hours, which equates to about 8 years being on constantly 24/7, so needless to say that the pump will easily outlast the warranty period for this product. One bonus is that on top of that, the pump is very, very silent, you'll have a hard time hearing it if you'd have no other fan in your build, so check which fan header you'll be plugging it's 3-pin connector and turn it up to 100% in BIOS to maximize this AIOs capability! Even at 100%, it should only draw about 0.2A (less than 2.5W!)
The rise in CPU performance gives way to increased heat output as CPU manufacturers push the silicon to new heights for performance and temperature both. The latest generation of Intel i9-10900K CPU is notorious for running hot under heavy load. To combat this, Cooler Master partnered with Intel to develop a subzero CPU cooling solution for mainstream applications. We managed to get a sample of this new cooler, so please join us in exploring this new technology.
Today We'll be looking at a cooler with fairly large shoes to fill. As many enthusiasts know, the Hyper 212 Evo from Cooler Master has been the go to cooler for anyone making the decision to ditch the pre-builds and commit to building your own PC. Let's see if the V2 can match or better the V1.
EK has been bringing you custom PC water cooling solutions since 1999. They've gained recondition as one of the industry leaders for all things custom water cooling, but what about non-custom water loops? Budget oriented all-in-one water coolers have come a long way since the early days. For the most part, EK has focused on the higher end AIO's or hybrid solutions, until recently. EK recently released a new line of budget-oriented AIO coolers, and they've packed in quite a lot of features for the price point. Join us as we evaluate this all-in-one cooler and put it to the ultimate test with our HEDT X299 test bench.
I was looking at 2080Ti cards on Newegg back in August of this year and I had an idea. I saw that the cheapest EVGA 2080Ti was $1090 (XC model) and the Kingpin Edition was considerably more at $1920. I was wondering to myself if there is really a substantial reason to spend an additional $830. I’m not going to delve into the details of each card and the merits of one design or another, the reviewers out there have done that to death. Rather, I wanted to know what the difference is for extreme overclocking. I wondered to myself: Can I take the cheapest EVGA 2080Ti -- and with the help of volt modding -- achieve the same LN2 clocks as the most expensive EVGA 2080Ti?? I had the idea that once I have removed the limits and unlocked all voltage control, it's just going to come down to silicon quality. I was willing to take a $1090 gamble and do extreme modding to the stock 2080Ti to answer this question, follow along to find out what happened.
Corsair recently made updates to their legendary line of hydro series coolers. Today we are reviewing the H115i RGB PRO XT. This latest edition has been optimized for large heat demands while keeping fan noise to a minimum. To accomplish this, Corsair pairs their 240mm radiator with high quality ML series fans, and a newly designed cold plate. Join us as we evaluate this all-in-one cooler and put it to the ultimate test with our HEDT X299 test bench.
