The Noctua NH-U12A chromax.black performs well as an air cooler with Alder Lake, able to handle up to 220w long term loads when paired with Intel's i9-12900k - performing almost as well as the bigger NH-D15. The all-black asthetic of this cooler will appeal to those who are tired of seeing RGB plastered everywhere, and Noctua's top-notch customer support means you'll know this cooler will be supported for years to come.
Sceptre has announced 6 upcoming high refresh rate monitors at a variety of resolutions - 1920x1080, 2560x1440, and 3440x1440 - and at speeds of between 165-240hz.
I'm giving Enermax' Aquafusion 360 the Silver Award because it's a good value AIO cooler ($120 USD) that technically passes all of my thermal tests (a test only one other cooler has passed), but It fails to get the Gold award because the fans get louder than they should in the hottest of loads.
This was the best experience in a monitor I have had for a long time, and that's not something I say lightly. I give the Nebula C27 our Gold Award because quite frankly, this monitor kicks ass.
Today we're testing DeepCool's CASTLE EX360 AIO Cooler, can it tame Intel's i9-12900k when power limits are removed?!
Intel's i9-12900k runs hot, but can BeQuiet's Pure Loop 280 keep it cool? We test it against BeQuiet's Shadow Rock Slim 2 and DeepCool's AK620 in this review.
DeepCool announces new mechanical keyboards, gaming mice, and computer cases.
In multi-threaded tasks the 12700 is just shy (~8%) of AMD's Ryzen 5900x on average, and a bit faster (~16%) in single threaded tasks. Cooling it is easy, and for most users the included stock cooler will actually suffice in most tasks - although it does run a bit noisy. With an expected retail price of ~$350, the i7 12700 packs a great value - especially when paired with a b660 motherboard. It's crazy to think that for the price of a 5900x, you can get this CPU and a motherboard
As I’ve mentioned in previous reviews, when power limits are removed Intel’s latest i9-12900k can prove quite challenging to cool...
Certified with an 80 PLUS Gold rating, the PQ-M series offers up to 90% power efficiency under typical system loads with all Japanese electrolytic capacitors to provide pristine power output quality while reducing overall heat waste and operational noise. Built solid from inside out, the circuit platform is hard connected to the modular board for added rigidity and reduced signal noise. The fully modular cabling allows only the necessary system cables are utilized for simpler cable management.
The $619.99 i9-12900k provides incredible uplifts in both gaming and productivity, while the $299.99 i5-12600k is the star of the show providing better overall performance than Intel's i9-10900k and uses significantly less power to do so.
