Nvidia unveils Turing-based Quadro RTX family
Packs up to 48GB of GDDR6.
$120, cools up to 250W TDP parts.
Can AMD reign in Intel's high-end desktop dominance with 2nd Gen Ryzen Threadripper 32- and 16-core CPUs
The Frio comes with two 120mm fans, and delivers great cooling whether you use one or both
Akasa's latest cooler is made for overclocking and high-end cooling. Does it deliver?
Cooling your CPU with liquid metal sound like something from Hollywood? Think again.
This cooler is great, but only if you've already got a pair of quiet fans to use with it.
The follow up to the Akasa Nero, the Nero S fancies itself as a premium cooler ready to take on the best. With four fat direct-contact heatpipes and a nifty S-blade fan it certainly looks up to the task. We see if it'll triumph or go up in flames in the bit-tech thermal test rigs.
They might take our lives, but they will never take our Freedom Tower! Well, we'd rather they didn't take either, truth be told - we're rather fond of our lives, and also of this excellent and well priced cooler. Read on to see why (and we promise no more Braveheart references).
We take a look at the X120TF, a weighty copper heatsink and no fan from Korean newcomers CoolAge. It uses an interesting new honeycomb design for its heatsink fins - but unfortunately, it doesn't seem set to displace our current favourite coolers.
The unending drone of your CPU cooler driving you mad? Then perhaps the Gelid Tranquillo can help. With an ultra low-noise PWM fan, but still packing four copper heatpipes and a big stack of cooling fins, check out this terrific low-noise HSF.
The Akasa X4 is a budget HSF that could be next of kin to Arctic Cooling Freezer 7. It sports a nifty version of the push-pin mounting mechanism used by the Intel reference cooler and also supports AMD sockets AM2 and AM3. We see how the sub-£20 X4 performs in overclocked systems.
Could turkey, fir trees and rubbish telly be joined by overclocking this Christmas? That's certainly what Titan is hoping for with its updated xmas edition of the superb Fenrir CPU cooler, rebadged for the festive season. Seriously.
At first glance the NesteQ Silent Freezer 1200 appears to have all of the hallmarks of a great CPU cooler. Massive heatpipes are routed straight through the base-plate and it's bigger than a cave troll. We find out if this HSF performs as good at looks.
The Tuniq Tower 120 was an HSF of formidable proportions and formidable cooling. With a fan slotted in the midst of its vast heatsink, few coolers that copied the design had much success. We find out if the Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme, can successfully emulate its predecessor.
Corsair has achieved the holy grail and made a low cost liquid cooler, the Hydro H50, that actually does what it should: it provides very good cooling for your CPU, it doesn't sound like a hurricane and isn't ridiculously expensive. Does this spell the end of air cooling as we know it?
