Low-Profile Cooler Noctua NH-L12 Review

Noctua, an Austrian developer and supplier of high-end cooling systems, is well-known for the design of versatile products which are able to satisfy the needs of any consumer, starting from average home users and finishing with devotees of overclocking. The recent Noctua creation is the low-profile CPU cooler destined to be employed in HTPC systems and other compact chassis. This cooler is characterized by the horizontal localization of radiator that allows its installation into a quite narrow casing. At the same time, the model is efficient enough to manage high-performance advanced processors.

Design and Framework

Noctua NH-L12 is notable for the classic design and framework. It features 150x128x93 mm dimensions (with two fans) which barely speak of low-profile form factor. NH-L12 is compatible with different CPU sockets, including Socket AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, LGA 2011/1366/1156/1156/775. This cooler consists of horizontal radiator, four copper heat pipes which pierce …

New RAM Modules Ballistix Sport SODIMM from Lexar Media

Lexar Media, a well-known American designer of diverse digital media products, starts selling its new RAM series from Ballistix line. Entitled Sport SODIMM, the series is introduced by four SODIMM-DDR3 modules, intended for the incorporation into gaming laptops: BLS4G3N169ES4, BLS8G3N169ES4, BLS4G3N18AES4, and BLS8G3N18AES4. The quadruple is distinguished by an original design with the implementation of unique heatspreaders. All of them are optimized for Intel Core i5/i7 mobile processors of the fourth generation (Intel Haswell platform) and support all up-dated XMP profiles.

The most beneficial feature applied to Ballistix Sport SODIMM modules is their power-saving nature. They are able to operate at 10% lower power voltage than analogous products; hence, they reduce the laptop’s power consumption index and increase the time of its offline work.

To continue, the first two models, BLS4G3N169ES4 and BLS8G3N169ES4, come in 4 GB and 8 GB capacities correspondingly. They …

Greeting a Pair of Liquid Freezer 120 & 240 Coolers

Arctic announces a pair of liquid cooling systems entitled Liquid Freezer 120 and Liquid Freezer 240. They are targeting the most demanding CPUs designed by Intel & AMD. The first model perfectly matches processors with up to 250 W TDP, while the second one might cope with 300 W TDP. Pricing is set at 100 EUR and 130 EUR correspondingly. Both new-comers are shipped with a brand Arctic MX-4 thermal compound.

Arctic Liquid Freezer 120 accommodates a waterblock with a copper base, an efficient pump, 120-mm heatsink, long connecting hoses (326 mm), and a couple of 120-mm fans, based on a fluid dynamic bearing. They are monitored by means of PWM technology, enabling them to rates within 500-1350 RPM speed range. At the same time, the maximal noise level does not exceed 0.3 Sone.

To continue, Arctic Liquid Freezer 240 is distinguished by the implementation of a 240-mm heatsink and four 120-mm fans. Tests prove, that this cooler is able to maintain the temperature of Intel Core …
