Today we're taking a look at horizontal CPU coolers from Reeven, Phanteks, and Noctua. Although horizontal CPU coolers are likely to always remain a niche market relative to their tower-style brethren, the continued growth in and shift to smaller form factor PCs has given them a higher profile among system builders as of late. Sometimes you cannot just buy the best cooler for the job for the simple reason that it will not fit into the system. This is particularly true for compact and/or narrow cases, especially those meant for ITX systems and horizontal placement. With the majority of typical CPU coolers being tower-type constructs, it is difficult to find one that fits inside compact case designs. To that end we've grabbed a few horizontal...
If there is a season for advanced cooling solutions, that season is summer. As temperatures are rising, enthusiasts are easily enticed by high-end cooling solutions, making it easier for...135 by E. Fylladitakis on 7/6/2015
There's no right way to describe it; we're testing the Cooler Master Seidon 240M along with two new Noctua coolers in a new testbed. Alongside ten of our industry's...60 by Dustin Sklavos on 4/26/2013
Now that CPU cooler reviews have begun in earnest here at AnandTech, it's been interesting to see just how conventional wisdom plays out in practice. There's been a pervasive...63 by Dustin Sklavos on 3/14/2013
