About air cooling
What is cooling? Cooling is everything that aids you in the fight against heat in your PC. It’s what keeps it from turning into a hot mess, so to speak.
The thing is, when we draw 650W from the outlet and into the computers internal components, that power gets converted into heat from the different components, heat which the components needs to get rid of.
Cooling covers the cooling of your CPU, GPU, case and many other things. Traditionally cooling PC components have been handled by a fan, moving relatively large quantities of air over a heatsink. The heatsink is in direct contact with the components in the PC. And so the heat is transferred from component, to heatsink and finally dissapeted into the air. However in recent years watercooling has gone from being an extreme enthusiast option, to becoming for more mainstream. This trend has especially been sped up by the introduction of All-in-one (AIO) coolers, which come preassembled from the manufacturer, with everything you need to start liquid cooling your system. They even almost mount the same way as a regular air cooler.
But what should you choose? Which fans are better? Isn’t watercooling dangerous with all the power in the system? Is watercooling better than aircooling?
All these questions can be difficult to find qualified answers to, that is why we, at Tweak Reviews, have implemented a series of filters, which hopefully can help you down the road of choosing the best cooling solution for your specific needs.
If you want to view all the cooling products we have tested over the years, you should not pick a filter and thus form a great overview. Do you, however, wish to see something specific, you could choose Corsair under brands.
In the brands dropdown, choose and click on Corsair. The other filters work much in the same way. Should you only wish to see NZXT cooling products that score a 3 or above, just go ahead and select these values. You can even apply price filters, allowing you to only be shown cooling products with a price below $149.
Should you find that there are no results at all, you can return and adjust your requirements until results start popping up in the search.
If you are ever in doubt what different things mean on our website, you can follow the little how-to buttons. That will lead you to our dedicated area, where we try to explain as much as we can about PC cooling - ie. cooling methods, their efficiency and expansion potential.
In our gaming chair test section you will be able to find all the tests of cooling products that we have performed over the years. Remember, we always review products based on our own subjective findings and experiences with the product. That is also why we guarantee untainted stories of how a product performs.
The news button is meant for when you have an interest in reading the latest news about cooling products. It might be very relevant, if you want to form an overview of new products coming soon, or just recent trends and developments.
