Noctua NT-H2 and NA-SCW1 Review

In junior high school, we had to make a presentation about our hero. Being an avid hockey fan, I decided to pick my favorite player, Jarome Iginla. To me it was a pretty easy choice, but more so because he was the stats leader and captain of the Calgary Flames. However, if I were to look back, I never really considered who he was when he was not on the ice. Last weekend was pretty special for him as his number was retired by the Flames organization despite only retiring from playing in mid-2018. He still is a hero for me, not only because he was one of the best of the power forwards, but his ability to give back to his teammates, the fans, and the community. If you ask any of his teammates, they often talk about how genuine he is and how much he wants to talk to fans. They often joked about how he would be late because he wanted to talk with a kid or sign an autograph for a fan. His conduct of humility and grace off the ice was met with a competitive and fierce attitude on the ice, leaving a legacy of how players can conduct themselves whether they are in the arena or in the neighborhood. When we come to Noctua, I think it is fair to say they have an amazing reputation in the CPU cooling department. Whether in their heatsinks or their fans, Noctua have often shown their experience in this area. So when we got word they were updating their thermal paste from the already venerable NT-H1, we knew we had to try this out. How does the NT-H2 compare to the original, and is it capable of helping out at near the hottest parts of your computer? Let us read on to find out!

Reeven Okeanos RC-1402 Review (Page 1 of 4)

I remember about five years ago, when people were talking about artificial intelligence or AI, nobody believed a computer could actually beat a human in a competition. Some said AI was overrated, since it had been developed for decades, yet we had yet to see robots running on the streets. However, things changed dramatically after AI Go, the AlphaGo Master, beat the world’s number one professional Go player in 2017. It was a milestone for AI and now a computer can play Go better than anyone in the world. People have spent thousands years on perfecting the game of Go and its techniques. However, the AlphaGo project started in 2014, three years before its victory. Now, some people are worried. On one hand, AI is a fancy tool that can bring our lives to a new level. On the other hand, many jobs could be lost due to AI replacement of humans. Maybe in the future, professional Go players will lose their jobs, and we have to watch AlphaGo fighting BetaGo. However, for me, I do not believe it is a problem. It has been always like this -- machines are developed by humans to outperform humans, and consequently, we have better lives thanks to the more capable machines. The same for Go playing, AlphaGo can be used to train humans so humans can player better Go. Since computers, with or without AI, are so important to us, it is beneficial to make sure our computer system works efficiently. In order to do that, a good CPU cooling system is required. To evaluate if a CPU cooling system is good or not, I will look from three perspectives. First, it should delivery good cooling performance. Second, it has to be quiet. Third, it would be nice if it looked good too. For today’s review unit, the Reeven Okeanos RC-1402, it is a dual fan CPU cooler with the capability of taking up to three 140mm fans if you so desire. Is it a good CPU cooler? Keep on reading the review!
