Noctua NH-D15 SE-AM4 CPU Cooler Review

Noctua makes some of the best air CPU coolers out there. We know this because we've tested many of their coolers over the years. With AMD's Ryzen launch we were brought a new socket (AM4) so Noctua decided to release three Special Edition coolers just for it. These include the NH-D15 SE-AM4, NH-U12S SE-AM4, and NH-L9x65 SE-AM4. We actually have all three coolers on hand, but will be testing the NH-D15 SE-AM4 first. This cooler has a dual-tower, dual-fan design featuring six copper heatpipes, two NF-A15 140mm fans, and Noctua's SecuFirm2 mounting system so installation should be pretty easy. Let's see what this cooler is all about!

NZXT Respire T20 & T40 CPU Coolers Review

If there is one thing that Apple has proven to the world it’s that creating an image that individuals want to identify with will sell your product. This technique has been repeated time and again in recent years, especially in the tech world. One company to do this and totally create an image that their target market can identify with is NZXT. Established in 2004 and focusing originally on computer enthusiast cases, NZXT have quickly and successfully ground out a segment of the gaming/case modding community to call their own. With a strong following in both the case and power supply market NZXT released the <a href="http://thinkcomputers.wpengine.com/nzxt-havik-140-cpu-cooler-review/" title="NZXT Havik 140 CPU Cooler Review">Havik air cooler</a> in June of 2011. It was met with great success and rave review. The Havik was released at a price point aimed at the upper level overclocker, it would seem that since then NZXT has become interested in the lower entry and mid level market. And that brings us to todays test subjects, we will be thoroughly analyzing both the <strong>NZXT Respire T20 and T40 air coolers</strong>.
