Having taken a look at quite a few products from Reeven in the past, we were definitely interested to look at their first RGB fan offering, the KIRAN. The KIRAN is a standalone RGB fan,...

It’s rather impressive that the company that basically introduced the all in one liquid cooler to us has also reinvented their product so many times and in so many ways since 2008. These days AiOs are standard and that standard has risen dramatically; especially over the past year. While performance will always be king, like it or not in the world of RGB everything, looks or rather the lack there of can kill. Checking a whole host of new boxes for the company, Corsair is introducing to the world the H150i PRO. This svelte new hydraulic system boasts a first ever for Corsair 360mm radiator as well as a new pump design equipped with of course, RGB LEDs. Follow along as we find out first hand whether this latest iteration is the future or a brief flash from the past.
Noctua makes some of the best air CPU coolers out there. When it comes to Ryzen they were one of the only manufacturers to have a full line of AM4 coolers ready. We've already taken a look at the big boy NH-D15 SE-AM4, with its amazing cooling performance. While the NH-D15 SE-AM4 is one of the best coolers for Ryzen it can be overkill for many people, and its shear size might not make it for everyone. Well Noctua has a smaller cooler made for Ryzen in their NH-U12S SE-AM4, which of course is their very popular NH-U12S with an AM4 mounting bracket. This single tower cooler features 5 large heatpipes and a 120 mm cooling fan. On top of that it has 100% RAM compatibility, so you shouldn't run into any clearance issues.
(Read with action movie voice over guy voice) In a world filled with heartache, turmoil, and strife. A world without direction or promise of a future, many are left with questions. Questions like, ‘What should I use to cool my CPU?’, ‘There are so many AiOs which one is right for me?’, and even ‘Isn’t the cooler that came with it good enough?’. If you find yourself echoing those thoughts you’ve come to the right place. Today we’re taking a look at a brand new AiO from a company just entering this ultra competitive space, Reeven, with their NAIA 240. This interesting first try at a watercooling part stands out with a clear, led backlit, refillable reservoir chamber. Follow along as we find out if this cooler is the right one to solve all your worries and fears.
Having utilized ARCTIC's Freezer 7 Pro and Freezer 64 Pro in previous generation builds, we were excited to take a look at their new Freezer 33 eSports Edition, as it has been a while since we took at look at any of their offerings. The Freezer 33 eSports Edition is a tower-style cooler with four heatpipes and a dual-fan configuration to keep air flowing through the heatsink.
If there is one thing we've learned about fast M.2 drives over the past year or so is that many of them get hot, very hot. Hot enough that that they will actually throttle and cause slower transfer speeds. We actually saw this in our review of the Kingston KC1000 M.2 drive. Obviously with many major drives (Samsung 950, anything Phison E7-based) having this issue something needed to be done, especially with so many of these drives out there. Well Alphacool has you covered with their Eisblock HDX line of M.2 coolers. There are actually 4 coolers in the line, but we will be mainly concentrating on the HDX-2, which is basically a PCI-Express 3.0 x4 card with an M.2 slot on it and a very large aluminum heatsink. This should definitely solve all of your M.2 throttling issues. Let's take a look!
Noctua. A name that should be familiar to anyone who has been around the PC building industry for any amount of time. Known for their high-quality products as much as they are for their "unique" fan color scheme that provokes a love/hate response from most users, Noctua is a leader in aftermarket PC accessories. And while Noctua provides many options with regards to standard fan sizes like 120mm x 25mm and 80mm x 25mm, they also offer quire a few fan size options for less common applications.
Today we’re going to check out one of those products, the Cooler Master MasterLiquid Pro 140. While not the big gun feature item of the CM lineup, we are still quite curious to see just how this dual fan equipped 140mm AiO liquid cooler performs.
LEPA is a company you might not have heard of. They have been in business since 2010 and they mainly make power supplies, cases, and CPU coolers. One of their latest CPU coolers is actually quite interesting as they tell us it is the World's First RGB CPU cooler. Since 2017 is the year of RGB we think it is quite fitting that we have an RGB CPU cooler! The cooler we are talking about is the LEPA NEOllusion which is your typical single-tower cooler sporting a 120 mm cooling fan, four 6mm-thick heatpipes, and a 200W TDP cooling capacity. On top of that you have RGB LEDs that can be easily controlled with the included remote. Let's see if this cooler is all flash or can actually do a good job keeping our CPU nice and cool.
