What started out as just general banter and sort of a joke while hanging out at CES actually happened, we are on-site at Frozen CPU in Rochester, NY. This article is not going to be an infomercial, more of a behind the scenes of the environment and events of a vendor who regularly supplies us enthusiasts when we need our fix of cooling and accessories.

Another peek into what goes on at Skinnee Labs. This time we look at the process for testing and calibrating flowmeters for the upcoming CPU Block Testbed upgrade. The aim is to use 3 Koolance FM17s to reproduce or improve the quality of output data, as well as making it easier to implement.

We have been rather quiet over the past two weeks working like crazy on several different things. I had expected to get another blog post up earlier than this, but a large shipment of Air Coolers landed at our door thanks to FrozenCPU. As you can probably guess I have been pre-testing on the bench to make sure the test procedure was ready for full on testing. No, results are not ready but you can be sure there will be lots of data for your viewing pleasure in the next couple weeks. For now, here is a glimpse of the coolers, extra fans and TIM for the round up.

As many of you can see, 2010 brought about a few changes at Skinnee Labs. The first big change and most noticeable was the site upgrade from static HTML to a Content Management System and site redesign. We moved all of the content over from the old site to the new, I wanted to make sure the work we did in 2008 and 2009 was readily available and not lost in an archive site somewhere. There is still some major work that we need to do and some clean-up to get the new site running as Vapor and I envisioned, but the new layout and CMS backend are working well. Do not hesitate to contact us if have an improvement idea, find a mistake, 404-Page not found or just want to provide some general feedback.

I didn’t believe it until I opened the box… the OCZ Cryo-Z is real and doesn’t just exist on a web site. I had heard a variety of different things. But the last I knew was they were available from a retailer in California and the units were pickup only. Fast forward… I have a Cryo-Z on its way to me and there is a new mount plate I need to verify with Core i7 and LGA1366. Panic sets in, I have never done phase or sub zero cooling… oh crap.

    Following Eric's lead, this is the full collection of results from the V2 Radiator Bench or let us call it 2011-2012 Radiator Comparison. When new results go up, this post will be updated. In this compilation post, the overall performance overview will be slightly simpler, with the full in-depth look available in the individual reviews or data supplements.

    Tuniq TX-2 and TX-4 hit our testbed and fare pretty well but there are concerns with pricing and batch variance.
