OC3D Best of 2014

Cooling

It's no good having some hard hitting hardware if you aren't looking after its long term health. The market has moved almost entirely towards AIO offerings and their performance is so good that you'd be foolish to look anywhere else. 

Fractal Design Kelvin S36 Review

The newest item in our roundup, but also one of the most deserving. Yes only people with enormous cases need apply, but the Kelvin S36 is outstanding. It's the AIO that all AIOs should aspire to be. Excellent build quality, ridiculous cooling performance, enough expandability to be the centrepiece of a whole watercooling loop, and for barely a pint above £100. Brilliant in every regard.

Cooler Master Nepton 280L Review

If your case has less space this is ace. The Cooler Master Nepton 280L is easily the best 'double wide' offering we've tested and isn't far behind the significantly bigger S36 above. It has got a few niggles, namely the lack of expandability and the fact only the deaf could run these fans at 100%. But it brings fantastic build quality, easy installation and a quiet pump to the table. Tweak the fan speeds down a little and there is still cooling performance to spare. Highly recommended.
