Xigmatek Manifests Specifications of Apache III

Xigmatek, a Taiwanese manufacturer of PC cooling solutions, has just promulgated the specifications of its new cooler series entitled Apache III. The series consists of two models only, which differentiate themselves by the casing's material and color. Model CD901 is housed in a silver aluminum casing, while model CD903 – in a black anodized aluminum casing. Both models have been developed specifically for CPU cooling purposes; they are able to support various platforms offered by Intel and AMD: LGA 775, 1155, 1156 (Intel), Socket AM2 and later (AMD).

Both models in Apache III series are equipped with a voluminous aluminum heatsink and 92 mm fan with half-transparent orange ribs. The fan is based on Long Life bearing and features PWM facility that allows for the adjustment of fan rotational speed. The speed span variates between 1200-2500 rpm, depending on the CPU temperature and loading. The noise level does not outreach the measures of twenty dB.

Scythe Intros a Universal CPU Cooler Iori

Scythe, a renowned developer of cooling solutions, introduces a new CPU cooler, entitled Iori. Due to an offbeat framework, the model is primarily targeting small-sized systems with mini-ITX and micro-ATX motherboards. It is compatible with practically all modern platforms (Intel 775/115x/1366 and AMD FM1/FM2/FM2+/AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+), save for Intel LGA2011 and AMD Socket AM1. The cooler is already on free sale at the price tag of 24.50 EUR.

Scythe Iori is all about nickel-plated heatsink with a copper base, three heatpipes that pierce the plates twice, and a single 100 mm axial GlideStream 100 fan, located on the top of the framework. The latter employs a sleeve bearing and supports PWM technology. It enables the variation of rotational speeds within the ranges of 300-1800 RPM. Herein, the fan is able to produce up to 43.74 CFM at the maximal noise level of 26.7 dB.

Taking into account that all the components on the small-sized motherboards’ PCB are tightly soldered, …

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 …
