Product Overview 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 realistic possibility.

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 and replaces the CR-100A which was a slightly larger first-generation version. Because the CR-95C is physically a little smaller, it has much improved compatibility because of reduced interference with other motherboard 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Large fanless heatsink The first thing to note, this heatsink is very very large. Before fitting check what it covers and fit that first. In my usage the heatsink covers the memory slots so I needed to insert them first. Installation is not the easiest, the four pillars are fitted first, then the heatsink fitted to these, however the heatsink does move around until you have two of the screws in place. There is no clear idea when the screws are tight enough either. When fitted though it is beautiful and it works very well. My CPU, (Intel 5) does not get above 35C and it is absolutely silent. In summary, takes a bit of fitting but an excellent heatsink and I would fit this again in my next PC I build. 09 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Silence is copper colour not golden I am currently running an X6800 dual core extreme nofan has made my pc change in volume from a helicopter to a hand held fan 13 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Large and silent Not used a CPU with no fan before so was concerned about this item. I ran a CPU burn test with no fans blowing on an Intel i7-4790 @ 3.60 GHz. I managed to push the temperature up to 87.5c. Normally it runs well below 60c even whilst gaming. The cooler is large. It may cover the first GPU slot on your MB. It's high/tall so maybe fitting it into the case could be a problem and you need to be careful with ram. I had to get some low profile ram to fit under this. But if your after making your pc quiet, can fit this monster in your case and don't mind the cost. Then go for it. I certainly would be happy to buy this again and have no wish to ever use a CPU fan cooler again! I hope this helps. 03 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Top Notch. I have this on an i7 4770K, and even under load the CPU does not get beyond 65°C Absolutely exceptional performance, and ridiculously huge... Beautifully made. May cause an issue with slot access on some motherboards, you may wish to review that first (my x16 slot is pretty tight, but just fits) 20 December 2014
