In the following overview at OCinside.de, you can already check the AMD Socket AM4 compatibility of some companies and see information about requesting the appropriate AM4 upgrade kits for an successful upgrade to the latest AMD Ryzen PC system.
We do not need to introduce the company Cooler Master. No matter whether cases, power supplies or peripheral, the manufacturer from Taiwan is at the top of many categories. Today with the MasterLiquid Pro 240 we introduce the latest compact water cooling from Cooler Master. Enjoy reading the review and exploring the new features.
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 Four of the overall six 6mm heatpipes have been replaced by three 8mm heatpipes, reducing the total number of heatpipes to five.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.
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
This time on OCinside.de we have a review of the Arctic Accelero Hybrid III-140, an alternate GPU cooler. The Accelero series has tradition among Arctics product. Arctic released their first GPU cooler under this name in 2006. The Hybrid-III, as the name suggests, is a hybrid cooling solution, meaning it got elements from both conventional air- as also water-cooling. All-in-one cooling solutions for CPUs already got a fair amount of market share, so why not transition it to GPUs?! We … Continue reading Arctic Accelero Hybrid III-140 Review

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
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.
