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 Four of the overall six 6mm heatpipes have been replaced by three 8mm heatpipes, reducing the total number of heatpipes to five.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 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_accelero_hybrid_iii_140

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 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.
