Affordable graphics card for Full HD Gaming and more! We recently tested an AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT graphics card and today we would like to test and overclock a lower priced graphics card on OCinside.de with the ASRock Radeon RX 6600 Challenger D 8G.

Arctic P14 Slim PWM PST Review

Flat 140mm fans from Arctic! After the slim 12cm fans, Arctic now releases the larger P14 Slim PWM PST fans. The new super-thin, pressure-optimized 14cm fans have a thickness of just 16mm, making them only 1mm thicker than the thin 12cm Arctic P12 Slim PWM PST fans. When space is ever limited in the SFF PC case, these fans can be the solution. Our following test reveals whether they are also good besides being thin.
