Scythe Kabuto 3 Review

scythe_kabuto_3

This time we got our hands on the Scythe Kabuto 3, the revised version of Scythes 120mm top blow CPU cooler. The cooling concept stayed mostly the same, but design and the heatpipe construction have been reworked radically. Four of the overall six 6mm heatpipes have been replaced by three 8mm heatpipes, reducing the total number of heatpipes to five. On the next pages we show you how the new Scythe Kabuto 3 performs.

Cryorig C7 Review

cryorig_c7

How about a little less? You hardly hear this question when it comes to PC hardware, especially coolers. But with cramped conditions you need to adapt sometimes. Cryorig produces a cooler with the minimalistic name C7 for these situations. Cryorig is a relatively new company which has the mission to bring in some fresh air into the cooling segment with small, but unorthodox innovations. You can check some of their products out in our previous Cryorig reviews. In this test … Continue reading Cryorig C7 Review

Arctic Freezer i32 Review

arctic_freezer_i32

Arctic – formerly Arctic Cooling – has 15 years of experience in PC cooling. This time we test the brand-new Arctic Freezer i32 from the Swiss company, which looks rather common at first glance. With its angular design and 120mm fan it really does not stand out of the huge mass of CPU coolers. But while testing we could find some traits which really make this cooler to something special. This i32 variant is only suitable for Intel systems, but … Continue reading Arctic Freezer i32 Review

Thermaltake BigTyp Revo Review

thermaltake_bigtyp_revo

Many PC enthusiasts count on tower-cooler when it comes to CPU cooling, because they usually promise the most air-cooling performance. Thermaltake wants to show that also relatively low built coolers like their BigTyp Revo can handle bigger amount of excess heat. We will show in our review on OCinside.de if this big type can really hold up to its name.

In addition, … Continue reading Cryorig H5 Ultimate Review

Scythe Iori Review

Today we are testing the Scythe Iori CPU cooler with top-blow design on OCinside.de. Because of their flat design, top-blow coolers are suitable for small environments such as a HTPC.

Enermax ETS-T40F-BK Review

enermax_t40f_bk

Today we will test the Enermax ETS-T40F-BK tower cooler on OCinside.de. You find countless CPU coolers, at the moment 310 of 675 total listed models have the so called tower design. This makes it hard for the consumer to choose the right one and for the manufacturer to stand out against others. We will check closely if Enermax achieved that with its model ETS-T40F-BK. In this cryptic label the F stand for fit and the BK for black, we will … Continue reading Enermax ETS-T40F-BK Review
