Dual-Tower heatsink designs are very impressive- both when it comes to size and performance. It’s another part of the story that (depending on the CPU Cooler manufacturer, a motherboard manufacturer and memory kit manufacturer) may make it in a way that something may come in the way. I am not a real believer that tall memory heatspreaders have real value when it comes to heat dissipation. Depending on the design, they do look at. And also, it helps to cover the chips used in the kits. Alas, we don’t have a proper equipment to evaluate that… yet!!


But 92mm based dual tower heatsinks would make one fascinated. Noctua NH-D9L CPU cooler  is a 95 x 95mm dual tower design. It still maintains a very small footprint even compared to 120mm towers. It’s shorter than Noctua NH-U9S and Coolermaster Hyper D92.

Cooler Master MasterBox NR200P SFF PC Case Review

The Cooler Master NR200P is a very interesting SSF PC case. It provides for motherboards in mini-ITX/ mini DTX layout, a layout which maintains the vertical length of the mini ITX while providing a longer width. Along with the SFX/ SFX-L spec power supplies, this case is to provide some interesting configuration options. miniITX cases come with some expected compromises. But with advancements in design from processors, chips all the way to layout and form factor specs, it reduces that compromise significantly.  In the end, we will see cases like these.
