Featuring a further refined blade design with Anti-Stall Knobs that works in tandem with the new AAO (Advanced Acoustic Optimisation) frame, the NF-S12A improves the airflow/noise efficiency of its renowned predecessor by up to 8%.

Now that we are all out from under the watchful eye of the IRS and have successfully cashed our income tax checks, it’s time to put some of that stimulus money back into the economy. I was nice to myself and bought a few creature comforts. A new hi-def, and Xbox 360, and some cushy [...]
Generally I’m a big fan of international products. My favorite band is from Finland, my favorite television personality is from Scotland, and my favorite actor is from England. It seems that things made in the USA these days don’t really last as long as they used to. Of course, if Toyota keeps things up the way they have [...]
Enermax is constantly impressing me with their case fans. When I reviewed the Enermax Twister a few months ago, I was so impressed by their quiet cooling power that I left them in my case and put my NZXT fans in a server case. And now I get the pleasure of checking out the Apollish [...]
Every computer needs a good cooling system, and the bare minimum is a good air intake and exhaust system. Unfortunately, most cases and fans vary on the quality of airflow and the amount of noise they produce. The design of the case may constrain effective airflow strategies. For example, some home theater cases use several [...]
Coolermaster has a reputation in the world of hardware cooling. They are well known for their excellent heatsinks and water-cooling devices. I’ve used several of their products over the years and have rarely been disappointed. The old saying goes that you get what you pay for, and with Coolermaster, even if you feel you are [...]
Remember when UV first became popular? I must have spent my entire McDonald’s salary tricking out my case with every UV light I could get my hands on. My PC glowed like a street racer. It was in its own movie. I eventually moved out of the UV phase and into the LED era, where I remain even today. It [...]
We here at OCMS have reviewed several products from our European pals at Noctua and I was very pleased to hear they contacted me again for some new products up for review this time is the “Noctua NH-C12P” CPU cooler. Ding dong! Oh, Jolly! The frigging mail dude arrived with a nice big package that [...]
It seems like I’ve gotten a lot of cooling hardware to review since I joined the OCModshop team. Fact is, I’ve only done four. But when I do two in a row I start to get the feeling that my boss is trying to tell me something. My first thought was that perhaps cooling products are hot on [...]
There I was. Standing there in nothing but my underwear. She comes in with a roll of bubble wrap and a box set of the new season of Scrubs. This has nothing to do with this review, I am just really cool like that and my fantasies are awesome. Speaking of cool. It’s time for yet another review on [...]
It seems like everyone and their mother has a heatsink out now. Companies known for their graphics cards, power supply moguls, and case manufacturers have all had their go at making the latest and greatest heatsink. And most of the time, the ugliest. And now someone else wants to put their chilly mark on the [...]
It doesn’t matter if your computer is air or water-cooled, is used as a workstation or gaming rig: air circulation is key to keeping your system running. Most people circulate air by using strategically placed fans, while others use water-cooling, heat pipes, and other technology, but one principle remains the same, to move warm air [...]
