Corsair Updates Link to Support Windows 10

Subject: Cases and Cooling | August 1, 2015 - 07:01 AM |
Tagged: windows 10, Corsair Link Digital, Corsair Link, corsair

Quick Note: This update does not support “the original Corsair Commander”. If your system uses that internal peripheral, then you should wait for a later version.

About two weeks ago, I decided to purchase and install a Corsair H100i GTX cooler in my system. While it runs quiet and keeps temperatures decently low by default, the device supports Corsair Link to re-balance the fans and pump, as well as change the color of the LEDs in the Corsair logo. For the record, my cooler will be staying on default white, although I can see people with existing color schemes wishing to match or contrast them, and it is great that Corsair provides that functionality.


At the time, it was not compatible with Windows 10. The operating system blocked the application's attempt to run, and even pushed notifications to my desktop to let me know it can't do that, Dave... I mean Scott. I changed the file name and was able to get the system tray notification to work, but entering the windowed interface caused it to crash.

As of July 28th, Corsair released a fixed version that runs on Windows 10. Corsair Link 3.2.5676 is available from their website, but it did not seem to get much publicity. Part of this might be because, by the time the general public got a hold of Windows 10, which started the next day, Corsair already had functional software out. Still, if you were a Windows Insider and you are still waiting for a compatible version? It came out last Tuesday.

If you aren't into the hefty ones, check out the Noctua NH-L9x65

Morry likes big coolers and Noctua is one of his preferred brands when he wants to test the tensile stregth of a motherboard.  Not all of Noctua's coolers are up to his preferences, such as the slender NH-L9x65, a waif-like 413g with the fan attached and a cute 95x95x79mm in size with a 14mm lift from that fan.  TechPowerUp's testing shows that the fan is quite quiet even when spinning at full speed but even still the temperatures of the i7-4770K it was cooling were the highest on the charts.  If you are cooling a CPU with a lower TDP in a small case, or even a 4770K then check out this review, the NH-L9x65 is a little expensive but certainly usable.


"Noctua's new NH-L9x65 is a low profile, small form-factor cooler. When I say small, I mean tiny as it is only slightly larger than the Intel stock heatsink, which is surprising and begs me to question its maximum potential. While performance most likely won't be its strong point, there is a chance this pint-sized offering will have a few surprises in store"

Deepcool's GamerStorm Tristellar enclosure; is it an engine block? An original series Viper?

Subject: Cases and Cooling | July 13, 2015 - 02:20 PM |
Tagged: Deepcool, gamerstrom tristeller, mini ITX

If you want a unique looking case then the Deepcool GamerStorm Tristellar certainly fits the bill, this is the only case with three physically separate chambers for your components.  The question about the effectiveness of the design remains, can it keep those components safe and cool?  Kitguru had a chance to test the case out, a 3.9GHz Intel Core i7-4770K and Sapphire Tri-X R9 290 used ensure that this case really gets a workout.  In the test the temperatures and noise levels were higher than the competition but certainly within reasonable ranges and they had no issues with stability.  It takes a bit of work to install the system in this case and an MSRP which will be at least $500 may make the case less attractive to some but it certainly will stand out on your desk or at a LAN Party.


"One glance at the Mini ITX Deepcool GamerStorm Tristellar makes it clear this isn’t a run-of-the-mill PC case. In fact you might struggle to tell it is a PC case at all."

Tagged: Snow Silent-750, seasonic, 80 Plus Platinum

If you had any doubts about the quality of the Seasonic Snow 750W PSU after reading our review then perhaps [H]ard|OCP will convince you and maybe even win one.  You will notice the same colour award offered and a rather subtle recommendation at the end of the article.  Seasonic has really become what PC Power & Cooling was back in the day, priced at a premium but absolutely worth it.  If you are looking for a PSU in the 750W range then this model should be at the top of your wishlist.


"Seasonic is without a doubt the "best" computer PSU designer and builder in North America in our opinion. It has continually made award winning enthusiast class PSUs which is simply not easy in today's market. Six of its last eleven units reviewed here have "only" produced HardOCP Silver awards though. Do we have a new Gold [H] today?"

Tagged: Enthoo EVOLV, atx, phanteks

If you were impressed by the Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV case that Sebastian recently reviewed but use a cooler a bit larger than the Corsair H105 and were wondering if the case was big enough for you, [H]ard|OCP has your back.  They've confirmed that smaller coolers such as the Antec KÜHLER H2O 620 and 920, Corsair Hydro H50, Corsair Hydro H75, Corsair Hydro H80, Corsair Hydro H90, Silverstone TD03 and NZXT Kraken X40 all fit in the top as well as the standard locations.  Large coolers including the Corsair Hydro H100 and Thermaltake Water 3.0 Extreme also fit easily in the top and even extra large 360mm triple fan radiators can be installed with the removal of the small plate at the top of the PSU cover and the rear facing hard drive rack.  Hopefully this case hits the market soon as it is proving to be a good solution for the serious enthusiast.


"Today we review the new computer case from Phanteks, the Enthoo EVOLV Mid Tower Chassis. It brings with it full aluminum construction and promises features such as quick release side panels, top mount radiator brackets, a new data drive mounting system, and lots of pretty LEDs in four different colors."

The LEPA AquaChanger 240 AIO CPU Cooler, marketing or magnificence?

Subject: Cases and Cooling | June 26, 2015 - 03:03 PM |
Tagged: water cooler, lepa, AquaChanger 240, AIO

This particular watercooler comes with long list of features which sound interesting on paper but need to be tested to see how effective they really are.  The fans are very effective at pushing air through the radiator but [H]ard|OCP found them a bit loud, on the other hand the pump could not be heard at all so if you were to modify the fan speed you could have a very quiet cooler, at the cost of some performance.  The cooling performance was almost exactly the same as the SilverStone Tundra TD02-E but the LEPA is available for under $100 which makes it a better value while still retaining decent performance. 


"LEPA comes to us today with its new AquaChanger 240 AIO CPU Cooler for review. LEPA lists a lot of cool sounding features like, Central Diffusing Passage Cold Plate, Protrusive Copper Base, Dual Convex Blade Fans, Ceramic Bearing Pump, and maybe the best is Anti-Leakage Tubing...because nobody likes leaky tubing."

The Raidmax Narwhal, a decent case with a strange name

Subject: Cases and Cooling | June 15, 2015 - 02:54 PM |
Tagged: Raidmax, narwhal, mid tower

It is unclear why Raidmax chose the name Narwhal for their latest case; without a facial horn it cannot be the Jedi of the sea, nonetheless that is the moniker which was chosen.  It is not even particularly huge, 498x245x518mm (19.6x9.6x20.4") and will fit ATX or smaller motherboards and is long enough for large GPUs, especially with some of the drive cage removed.  It offers double 120mm fan mounts on both the front and the top of the case, with a single mount out of the back along with three grommets for external watercooling.  Neoseeker tested the case in its basic configuration and saw decent results, with additional fans or a watercooling set up you can expect it to improve upon the tests seen in their review


"The Raidmax Narwhal looks to be a whale of a mid-tower case measuring 498(H) x 245(W) x 518(D) mm and made of ABS steel. It comes with four external 5.25" drive bays and six internal 3.5" bays (three in a removable cage), and room for up to six 120 mm fans (two up top can be swapped for 140 mm variants). See how the Narwhal fares against competing mid-towers in our latest case review."

Not everyone needs a kilowatt; nor perhaps the Cooler Master G550M?

Subject: Cases and Cooling | June 9, 2015 - 06:46 PM |
Tagged: cooler master, G550M, 550W, modular psu, 80 Plus Bronze

At 550W and an 80 Plus Bronze rating the Cooler Master G500M is not as powerful as many of the PSUs we have seen lately, then again at $75 it is also more affordable.  Unfortunately for Cooler Master the competition tends to be lower priced, with Corsair, SeaSonic and Thermaltake all having slightly better PSUs of a similar wattage for an equal or lesser price.  On the other hand Cooler Master's five year warranty is longer than any of the other brands and [H]ard|OCP feels that the G500M shows improvements over previous models as it passed all of their tests.  This particular model may not be a great choice but if CM continues to improve the quality of their budget priced models the next release might be a solid contender.


"Today we spend our time with a computer power supply from Cooler Master that is towards the lower end of the wattage scale coming in at 550 watts. Cooler Master claims "notably higher efficiency and voltage stability than other designs." We will see if its Bronze efficiency G550M PSU will stand up to our gauntlet and its own claims."

Corsair has shown its first SFX form-factor PSU at Computex, the SF600.


Image credit: Tom's Hardware

True to its name the SF600 is a 600W PSU, and it features a fully modular design and will carry an 80 PLUS Gold certification. According to the report from Tom's Harware Corsair is using a 92 mm fan with the SF600, slightly larger than the 80 mm fans found in standard SFX power supplies, but smaller than the 120 mm fans that SilverStone has been using in its SFX-L form-factor PSUs.

In addition to teasing a new line of DDR4 memory, G.Skill also announced a new line of Ripjaws branded power supplies. So far, the lineup includes four models offering wattages from 750W to 1,250W. The PS750G and PS850G are rated 80 PLUS Gold while the PS850P and PS1250P are rated 80 PLUS Platinum which is nice to see (Platinum status requires 92% efficiency while the Gold models hit 90% efficiency).

GSkill Ripjaws 80Plus PSUs.jpg

The new Ripjaws PSUs are fully modular designs using all japanese capacitors and reportedly high quality components. G.Skill is using a 140mm fan for cooling that is able to spin down to zero at low loads to reduce noise levels. Safety features include support for over current, under voltage, and short circuit protection among others (OVP, UVP, OCP, OPP, SCP, OTP). Beyond that, detailed specifications have yet to be revealed. I have reached out to G.Skill to inquire about the source or OEM of these power supplies, and will update the article if they are willing to comment at this time.

Pricing and availability are also unknown at this time. G.Skill appears to be spreading its wings this year as it branches out further into other segments of the PC market. The company even has headsets and keyboards now! Are you ready to rip into these new Ripjaws PSUs? (Figuratively, of course, unless your Allyn or Lee!)

Computex 2015: Enermax Shows Off New Highly Efficient 550W Digital Fanless PSU

Subject: Cases and Cooling | June 4, 2015 - 10:02 PM |
Tagged: modular psu, Fanless PSU, enermax, computex 2015, computex, atx

Enermax has a new power supply on the market that is fully modular, fanless, and digital to boot. the new 550W PSU falls under the company's DigiFanless brand and looks to be perfect for enthusiasts wanting a silent PC.

The Enermax EDF550AWN is the first 550W power supply that is both fanless and supports digital monitoring and control. The 80 PLUS Platinum rated PSU is fully modular and supports both single and multiple +12V rail configurations (user-selectable, +12V1 and +12V2 are rated at 30 amps).

Enermax 550W Digital Fanless Power Supply.jpg

There are no fans here, just lots of ventilation for passive cooling. Enermax officially rates the power supply at 40°C (104°F) maximum operating temperature while delivering the full 550W ouptut power, but in talking with Maximum PC at Computex the company stated that in its testing lab they were able to maintain the maximum output at up to 50°C temperatures before the PSU needed to shut down.

The digital nature of the PSU is related to the ZDPMS (Zero Delay Power Monitoring System) technology which allows users to monitor and control the hardware using software running on the PC it is installed in. The application displays, in real time, the total output power, efficiency, temperature, and individual rail performance. Users can also input their $/KWh electricity costs into the TCO calculator to figure out how much it costs to run their PC and the CO2 footprint. Users are also able to use the ZDMS to adjust the current output and warning notification thresholds.

Maximum PC was on site at Computex and was able to see a demonstration of the PSU monitoring software.

Enermax has included logic to shut down the power supply in the event of overheating as well as the usual fare of safety features (OCP, OVP, UVP, OPP, OTP, SCP & SIP) They even included a bracket that locks the AC cable to the back of the power supply.

From the specifications and this review from ocaholic, the 550W Digifanless PSU is a highly efficient silent PSU with some useful extras that would be perfect for a silent gaming PC, HTPC, or audio engineering PC. It is available now for around $210 from online retailers. Looking on Newegg, you can even get it for 25% off using the promo code 25YRCELEBRATE.

Fractal is showing off several new products at Computex, but the one that caught my eye was the new Node 202 which is a small form factor Mini ITX case perfect for the living room. The thin case is all black with a metal texture finish, rounded corners, and diagonal ventilation grilles along the sides and top. The 10.2 liter capacity case measures 377mm x 88mm x 332mm (including case feet) and can accommodate SFX power supplies, Mini ITX motherboards, and a dedicated graphics card.

Fractal Design Node 202.jpg

The front of the case has two USB 3.0 ports and two audio jacks in the bottom left corner next to the power button. Large filtered vents are located on the right, top, and bottom of the case while the left side has a thin grill along the bottom. Needless to say, there is plenty of room for airflow and the case would do well with both air cooled and fanless systems. Users can mount the case horizontally or vertically using an included stand. Interestingly, the Node 202 divides the case into two separate chambers to isolate the graphics card from the CPU, motherboard, and power supply to facilitate cooling.

Internally, the Node 202 has room for a Mini ITX or Thin Mini ITX motherboard with CPU coolers up to 56mm tall, a 130mm SFX power supply, and a dual slot graphics card up to 310mm in length. Users can install up to two 120mm fans in the GPU chamber. Storage support tops out at two 2.5" hard drives or solid state drives (SSDs).

Fractal Design Node 202 Internals .jpg

Fractal Design is also offering a version of the Node 202 bundled with its Integra SFX 450W power supply. The 80+ Bronze power supply will come with custom length cables and connectors designed specifically for the Node 202. It is covered by a 3 year warranty.

The PSU-less Node 202 will have a MSRP of $79.99 while the Node 202 with bundled PSU will be $139.99. Both models will be available soon in the US.

A big new case from Thermaltake, the Suppressor F51

Thermaltake's new Supressor F51 is a hefty case, measuring 523x231x577mm (20.6x9.1x22.7") which allows the use of 360mm and even 420mm radiators.  The buttons and front panel plugs have all been moved to the top of the case to give the front a nice clean look, the monolith style which has become so popular as of late.  Internally are mounts for boards ranging from Mini-ITX to E-ATX and enough space for three extra long video cards.  The drive bays, including the two 5.25" bays, slide out for easy access or full removal and foam dampening covers most of the flat surfaces to reduce noise.  [H]ard|OCP were more than impressed, passing on a Gold Award for this case which is due to hit market on 6/29/15 for an MSRP of $120.


"Thermaltake is upping its game with its new Suppressor F51 E-ATX Mid-Tower Chassis. New sound deadening technology, expanded cooling options, all while supporting motherboards from mini-ITX to E-ATX in size. The F51 has a fully modular tool-less design that also has dust filtering in mind."

Cooler Master announced three cases aimed at the modding community at Computex 2015.  Part of their new 'Make It Yours.' campaign are the MasterCase and MasterCase Pro as well as the MasterCase Maker 5.  All of the external parts are modular and easily removed with a clip and click system implemented on the cases allowing you to not only change the configuration of your case but also to modify them or design new ones if you have the tools.

MasterCase 5 FreeForm Modularity System.jpg

All the cases follow a similar overall design to the MasterCase5 pictured above, a 460mm tall tower, deep enough to fit 260mm radiators and long enough for lengthy high end GPUs.  With a half dozen mounts for 140mm fans the case should move heat efficiently and depending on the fans you chose, quietly as well.  The MasterCase5 sports handles on the top, though it is perhaps a bit large to be considered portable they could come in handy for cases that spend time being shown off at conventions and shows.  The Pro model forgoes the rear handle for an elevated mesh cover good for installing a radiator while the Maker 5 has a solid top but vented front door for those who might want to do their own work to the top.  All have a separate bottom compartment for your PSU and drive bays for both 2.5 and 3.5" drives which can be mounted in a variety of ways or removed altogether.
