Probably the biggest technical advancement of the last decade in the field of PC cooling has been the invention of the thermal heatpipe. This has allowed a
much greater efficiency of heatsink to be designed, since heatpipes are good at moving heat from one location to another, both quickly and silently.
However, the performance of heatpipes has been limited by their internal design, which relies on cyclic evaporation and condensation of the water inside them.
That is until now! The next generation heatpipe has arrived - it's smaller, lighter, wickless and offers a massive improvement in performance. Its design is
patented by Nofan Corporation, and it's called the IcePipe.
The holy grail of quiet computing is excellent cooling without resorting to the use of a fan. Rather than using forced airflow along with its associated problems
(noise, dust-build up, bearing wear and limited lifespan), convection cooling is definitely the technology of the future, and because of the IcePipe, this is now a
The exact details of how the IcePipe works are a trade secret, but in essence they operate by liquid capillary action. By making the pipe very small, natural
perpetual circulation of the liquid inside takes place, and heat is efficiently dissipated into the attached heatsink fins. Of course, like conventional heatpipes, the
IcePipes are permanently sealed in the factory so that no liquid can ever escape.
The CR-95C is Nofan's flagship CPU cooler. It is a more user-friendly version of the CR-100A which is the slightly larger version sold with Nofan's barebones kit
(Set-A40). The IcePipe can easily be installed onto many types of motherboard without interference with other components. It is certainly a thing of great
beauty and if you happen to have a side-window in your PC, a definite talking point! The primary consideration with the CR-95C (like all CPU coolers) is its
ability to cool hot-running processors. The heat generated by a CPU is defined by its TDP (thermal design power) and is measured in watts. Newer processors
tend to run cooler than previous generation models, although there will always be a trade-off between speed and heat. The CR-95C can continuously and
silently cool any processor with a TDP specification of 95 watts and under, which includes the majority of processors on the market today - even high
performance ones. For CPU and motherboard compatibility, please see below.
We have two versions of the CR-95C available - one nickel-plated (Pearl Black) and the other plain copper. The plated version costs a little more and will
remain the same colour permanently, whereas the copper version is more affordable but may slowly turn a slightly duller colour after a few years due to copper
oxidation. There is no difference in cooling performance between the two versions.
