Dynatron R17 – LGA2011 3U+ Server or Workstation CPU Air Cooler

Feature R17

  Closer Look When we first took on the Dynatron coolers honestly one of the most excited I was to work with was this one and that’s because I feel a bit more at home working on a tower cooler like this as the small flat coolers you get with servers just do not seem right after working as an enthusiast for so long. The small coolers have their place and they are usually in noisy large thin blade servers but big towers like this are more akin to what you see in a desktop rig and well this one happens to be spec’d as a 3U Server or desktop workstation so its a bit more up my alley when in terms of testing and familiarity.

Dynatron K2 1156 Low Profile CPU Air Cooler for Mini ITX Platforms

Feature K2

  Closer Look Previously we had taken a look at a unit from Dynatron for the LGA 2011 server side application utilizing the Slim ILM design and active cooling for a really thin 1U blade server application.

Being that Dynatron has never really been in the consumer market very heavily and only recently really started offering anything resembling possible competition for the desktop market honestly so to ...

Dynatron R25 1U & Up Server CPU Cooler for LGA2011

Feature R25

  Closer Look When looking at cooling solutions all too often we forget that besides the big names there are many solutions out there that never see the pages of many popular enthusiasts media or even get any coverage really at all. Especially when considering that besides the enthusiasts and gamer communities which we cater to there are many more uses for systems which go unnoticed every day yet life as we know it would halt shoudl these systems stop functioning so viable cooling solutions for them are primary concerns for everyday life. Many server side solutions are made for small blade servers such as we have today and to some surprise to some of you many of the popular cooling manufacturers such as Thermaltake and many others who have been making enthusiasts coolers for some time also service these important workstation and server solutions for even longer. Dynatron is ... Read More »
