We already know that cheaper products have to be produced more simply in order to be able to hit the targeted price point at all. If you take a graphics card from the lower middle class as an example, then it is definitely worthwhile to examine the consequences. Exemplary because it affects all [...]

The name Noctua is likely to be known to most, be it the private silent enthusiast, Sys admin with sensitive ears or even users in the industry. A wide range of products and very quiet operation are associated with the Austrian/Taiwanese company for as long as the chocolate-brown color of the fans [...]
Our forum member Casi030 has recently given himself up to the grinding again and since many readers write that heatpipe direct touch is bad, he has once done a test for himself with a massive radiator floor. For this, he has secured a Scythe Kotetsu Mark II TUF Gaming Alliance to compete against [...]
Yes, it's just so winter and Corona has the outside life under control. Samples become scarce and stop, how warm is it actually outside? Admittedly, summer is still a long way off, but it gets warmer every day. For a PC owner or self-builder, the topics of waste heat, cooling and ambient [...]
Until now, the popular GPU cooler could only be mounted obliquely or not at all on a GeForce RTX 2080 (Ti), RTX 2080 Super or RTX 2070 Super, as the two Bracktes did not contain any really suitable threaded holes. However, as demand piled up and there are enough cards with less powerful coolers on [...]
I had already mentioned in the article "Intel Core i9 vs. AMD Ryzen 9: How convex or concave are the current heatspreaders really and what are the consequences?" roughly torn, where I see the problem of the so-called IHS. The feedback from the readers was very positive, with voices also [...]
Everyone now has one with air, so Corsair is finally following in his way. With the Corsair A500, however, you go straight to the full and pop a whopping 200 grams more than our reference (Noctua NH-U12A) on the parquet. Artificial, because it is a significantly larger double fan cooler with [...]
The fact that you can make very good products like Noctua's U-Series with the 120 fans is certainly always in it, but it is amazing how a relatively compact tower cooler from the same house can compete against the baroque competition of the cooling surface inflationary claim white. And since I [...]
We already know it from many (also mine) articles about cooling, thermal paste and heatspreader: really plan is really nothing. And while the quality of the radiator floors has really improved over the years, one would finally have to question the current CPUs again, or not? That's exactly what [...]
Intel's NUC (Next Unit of Computing) is a mini barebone PC with laptop hardware to equip an extremely compact computer with powerful hardware. Only SSD and RAM need to be retrofitted by the user to have a full computer. Due to the compact dimensions of 117 x 112 x 36mm or 117 x 112 x 51mm, the [...]
Now you could post another 20 pages of photo of the successful assembly, but I think that the video format with the (sometimes time-lapsed) view of the construction realization gives more. The SL600M Black by Cooler Master is a thankful midi tower that offers some small innovation that goes beyond [...]
Sometimes the best methods fail on the largest surface and that's why I once looked more intensively at the optimal method. Now with "Try and Error" you can apply paste again and again and then measure it elaborately, because you don't see how the paste actually spreads with the [...]
Manufacture goods with massive cooling surface, good workmanship and (also over the price) a very exclusive touch of upper-class. At Monsterlabo the name seems to be program and As a self-confessed passive cooling freak I got two of these fancy hardware cages for the tests...
So AMD did! Not only that the Threadripper 2 has also been granted the new Zen+ This, as we already find with the Ryzen 2700X and other models of this series, no, one also occupies all four possible places in one of the two models tested today. instead of two, the Ryzen Threadripper 2990 WX [...]
When it comes to storms, then most of the time DHL comes. So also with us and suddenly there were two relatively large and heavy boxes. Let's pack it on and off!
If you write rather flapsily, with the RX Vega everything would be a little different, then you are not even so wrong. In addition to the interesting technology around the interposer and the HBM2 memory used, there are of course also new technological challenges in the way, which I already [...]
Here the term tower cooler immediately takes on a completely new meaning! The only question is what Oleg actually wants to cool down here. But the will counts.
