A CPU cooler can be very cheap, very expensive and can even cost you up to 100 euros. For this article we tested 39 current CPU coolers and try to find out which one has the best cooling, is the quietest or ideally which one excels at both. Every pro...
2013-08-16 01:09:11
Be Quiet heeft haar naam absoluut waargemaakt. Beide nieuwe koelers zijn zeer stil, zowel op lage als hoge snelheid. De koelprestaties van het Advanced model vallen ietwat tegen, maar zijn geenszins slecht. Zo is het verschil met de best presterende koeler op hoge snelheid exact vier graden en dat is dus erg weinig. De best presterende koele...

Met een geheel vernieuwde testopstelling hebben we 33 populaire CPU-koelers (opnieuw) getest. Welke koelt het best? Welke is het stilst? En bovenal: aan welke CPU-koelers doe je de beste koop. De tijd dat processors nog vaak los dus zonder gebundelde...

Aan een CPU-koeler kun je twee tientjes uitgeven, maar een bedrag richting de 100 euro is ook mogelijk. Voor dit artikel testten we 39 uiteenlopende modellen en zochten we uit welke excelleren qua koeling, qua geluidsproductie en idealiter zelfs op beid...
Bottom line Op de voorgaande pagina's hebben we in alle categorieën al de de winnaars en aanraders genoemd. De algehele testwinnaar is de Scythe Mugen 4 PCGH Edition vanwege de ongeëvenaarde combinatie van prima koeling met een zeer lage geluidsproductie en een no...

Das deutsche Unternehmen be quiet hat sich seit seiner Gründung darum bemüht, leise Produkte auf den Markt zu bringen. Zumindest die aktuellen Netzteile können dabei durch ein kaum wahrzunehmendes Betriebsgeräusch punkten. Doch neben dem Netzteil gibt...

Doch lassen wir alles erst noch einmal Revue passieren. Die Kühler machen optisch einen durchaus hochwertigen und edlen Eindruck. Dieser...

Немецкая компания be quiet! не так широко известна на российском рынке. Основной ассортимент «be quiet!» составляют блоки питания, кулеры и вентиляторы. Совсем недавно продукцию компании можно было видеть только в новостях и немногие могли познакомиться с...

Наши постоянные читатели уже знают, что немецкая компания beQuiet! выпускает если не лучшие, то одни из лучших вентиляторов для систем охлаждения и корпусов системных блоков. Поэтому, когда были анонсированы два кулера beQuiet! для центральных процессоров...
Bottom line Прямо скажем, кулеры beQuiet! Dark Rock Advanced C1 и Dark Rock PRO C1 не оправдали возложенных на них надежд. Несмотря на грамотно спроектированные, качественно исполненные радиаторы и их оснащение превосходными вентиляторами, кулеры не демонстрируют тог...

Let’s start with the Silver Arrow, the highest performance solution among those we’ve looked at here. Though this cooler does cool very effectively, it’s also very large making it impossible to use it in combination with certain memory bars, something...

Be Quiet have been around for some time and are better known for their range of high quality power supplies. As with many companies of late they have recently felt the need to enter new markets, with their Silent Wings fan range it doesn't take a desce...
Bottom line We have had a wide range of coolers to test at OC3D this year and one thing that has become very apparent is there isn't really a cooler that covers every base. Not one cooler can look amazing, perform as well as the high-end coolers and still remain quie...

Our regular readers already know that the German beQuiet! Company makes some of the best fans for cooling systems and system cases. That is why the moment they announced two new CPU coolers, Dark Rock Advanced C1 and Dark Rock PRO C1, all of us were re...

A zmieniło się sporo, i to nawet nie tyle na rynku schładzaczy, co na rynku procesorów. Gdy powstawał poprzedni test, w sklepach dominowały Core i7 pierwszej generacji oraz nieznacznie od nich chłodniejsze Phenomy II X4. Wiele osób miało jeszcze platformę...
Bottom line Przetestowaliście 64 schładzacze, wykresy są wielkie, tabelka dynamiczna niczego mi nie mówi, pogubiłem się w gąszczu stron. Szukam po prostu dobrego, cichego i zarazem wydajnego modelu do swojego procesora. Co wybrać?W zasadzie można wybrać każdy model...
