Get your Notebook operating permanently on turbo mode thanks to liquid metal! In this new tutorial on OCinside.de we have modified a laptop using liquid metal so that the CPU can be overclocked higher thanks to better cooling and can even be operated permanently at maximum turbo clock. In this tutorial, we test the Conductonaut liquid metal from Thermal Grizzly, which has already proven its worth in CPU Delidding. It was worth it!
Today on OCinside.de we have a step-by-step guide on how to retrofit water cooling on an AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT graphics card. More specifically, we are upgrading an ASRock Radeon RX 5700 XT Taichi X 8G OC+ with an Alphacool Eisblock Aurora Plexi GPX-A AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT. The instructions for building the water cooler graphics card are available both as a tutorial video on our OCinside YouTube channel, and as detailed illustrated instructions.
Today on OCinside.de we tested the Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240P Mirage AIO water cooling with addressable RGB lighting, transparent pump housing and special fan design. How it stands up to other coolers and what RGB effects it has to offer, we show in the following review.

This is how to nickel plate. Nickel-plated surfaces are frequently encountered in everyday life. Furniture fittings, tools and even CPU coolers are often coated with a thin layer of nickel. It protects objects from corrosion and makes them resistant to environmental influences. In the computer area, high-performance CPU coolers are often nickel-plated, as bare copper would otherwise oxidize quickly. In the following nickel plating tutorial on OCinside.de we nickel plate a coldplate and test the nickel plated AIO with liquid … Continue reading DIY Nickel Plating Guide

Alphacool offers suitable water cooling for a wide range of graphics cards, not only for the reference design, but also for special versions. We are therefore testing today the Alphacool Eisblock Aurora Plexi GPX for the ASRock Radeon RX 5700 XT Taichi X8 8G OC, including the modification video in our OCinside YouTube Channel. But that’s not all, we have tested the GPU water cooling first with the included thermal paste and then with liquid metal!
Today at OCinside.de we take a close look at the Intel CPU Heatspreader and clarify whether it is worth the effort to grind and polish the CPU IHS or not. The latest high-tech measuring equipment is used, as it is used in aerospace and Formula 1. First of all, there will be some surprises! The following workshop will show you exactly which ones.
After we already looked at the CPU cooling performance, RGB effects and the OLED display in the Asus Ryujin 360 review, today the VRM cooling is on the test bench. We take the AIO apart, build a new loop out of it and cool a previously delidded Intel Core i9-7900X without heatspreader with liquid metal. As always including new videos, whereby you shouldn’t miss the extensive video with the water cooling loop tutorial!
Overclocking an inexpensive Intel N3450 Apollo Lake or Intel N4100 Gemini Lake CPU is officially not possible due to the locked multiplier, but we have looked into this issue in order to provide a little bit more performance for users of slower PC systems and have even written a small OC Tool. So from now on you can not only overclock a common Intel CPU, but also get some more out of a low budget Intel Apollo Lake system.
Bigger, cooler, more colorful! Today we are testing the Asus ROG Ryujin 360 AIO water cooling system from the absolute premium segment with VRM cooling, addressable RGB lighting and OLED display, which is also completely equipped with Noctua Premium fans. In the following Asus Ryujin review, we not only measure the cooling performance with different processors, but also demonstrate again the fan and pump volume as well as the lighting effects in three new videos.
Overclockers, watch out! Recently we have shown on OCinside.de how to tweak with liquid metal PC and notebook, but today we show an even simpler method. We explain in the following tutorial how you can overclock your CPU in the egg boiler and even repair a defective CPU! There is only one catch, because the already very high demand for egg cookers at Easter could drive up the prices for the magic devices even higher. Edit 2nd April 2019 – … Continue reading AMD and Intel CPU Tweaking in egg boiler
