Mobvoi TicWatch Pro Review

Most of us know Smartwatch manufacturers like Apple, Fitbit, Fossil, Garmin, Huawei, MyKronoz, Pebble or Samsung, of which we have tested for example the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier, but probably very few know Mobvoi. Mobvoi has developed something very special: a Smartwatch display consisting of two layers, which can be selected manually or automatically! The OLED display offers the full Wear OS by Google Smartwatch functionality and the transparent LCD layer above is extremely power saving. In the following Smartwatch … Continue reading Mobvoi TicWatch Pro Review

Arctic BioniX P120 and P140 Review

Today we tested on OCinside.de the new Arctic BioniX P fans in 120mm and 140mm. In contrast to the previously tested Arctic BioniX F120 and F140 fans, the Arctic BioniX P120 and P140 fans are optimized for static pressure, offer a 0dB mode and some technical improvements. We are curious how the fans will perform in practice.

Enermax T.B. RGB Review

We have just tested on OCinside.de the new Enermax T.B. RGB fan in 3 fan pack. The T.B. RGB fans are mainly based on the T.B. Silence ADV 120 fans, but they are enhanced by a stylish RGB lighting with its own controller, remote control and the possibility to synchronize them with the motherboard. We are interested to see how these fans will perform in practice.

Antec DF500 RGB Review

Today we are testing the new Antec DF500 RGB case, which features a stylish acrylic glass front and tempered glass side panel. We have already tested on OCinside.de some current chassis with RGB fans and will see where the special features of this Antec Dark Fleet DF500 RGB midi tower are.

Enermax NEOChanger Review

For a custom water cooling system, Enermax offers an interesting reservoir / pump combination with lighting, which we will take a closer look at, listen to, and test thoroughly. At our OCinside YouTube Channel there is a new video of all Enermax NEOChanger 300ml RGB effects and in the review there is of course a 360 degree view in addition to the sound sample of the integrated pump.

Crucial MX500 1 TB M.2 SSD Review

A few weeks ago we reviewed the Crucial MX500 1TB SSD in 2.5-inch format and today we are testing the Crucial MX500 1TB SSD as M.2 version on OCinside.de. In the review we show the differences between the MX500 2.5-inch vs. M.2 SSD and test the M.2 both with and without passive M.2 heatsink on the ASRock Z390 Extreme4 motherboard. So we can be curious whether the small surcharge to the M.2 SSD is worth it and how well the … Continue reading Crucial MX500 1 TB M.2 SSD Review

ASRock Z390 Extreme4 Motherboard Review

Today we test on OCinside.de the ASRock Z390 Extreme4 motherboard with the latest Intel Z390 chipset. As already shown in the Z390 Video, this motherboard offers a great basic equipment and supports the Intel 8th Gen as well as the newest Intel 9th Gen processors. Of course we again show some thermal images of the voltage regulators and overclocked the new Intel LGA1151 v2 motherboard with an Intel Core i7-8700K CPU.
