Cooler Master Hyper 622 Halo Review – Half black, half RGB Illumination

We recently reviewed this manufacturer’s new all-black flagship, but today we’re moving more in the direction of the upper mid-range, and it’s also allowed to have some colorful lighting. A decent cooling performance and still an unproblematic size for most mid towers is promised, so let’s check it out together! Here we go [...]

Interactive case fan database – search and compare the specifications as well as real measurement data of current fans

Today we start the beta phase of our first interactive fan database and offer for the first time a variety of real measurement results compared to the manufacturer data in an interactive database, which allows comparisons of application scenarios and speeds that did not exist so far.

Thermal Putty instead of expensive thermal pads with different thicknesses and an interesting thermal paste from the Far East

With the Gainward RTX 1660 Super (Susi), I am once again rescuing a graphics card that I had already tested extensively almost four years ago and that has also been in almost daily use since then.

Roundup and re-measurement of all tested CPU air and water coolers

To be able to cover the higher TDP classes of processors in the future, I upgraded my testbench from a Ryzen 5 3600 to a Ryzen 9 3950X. However, so that the compact or budget coolers are not completely overtaxed, testing is done in three stages. This article serves as a reference and basis for future comparisons so that tested air and water [...]
