Axagon Riddle (2/2024). Can you guess what’s in the photo?

In cooperation with Axagon, we have prepared a cyclical activity for this year, which may be of interest to HWCooling readers. We’ll post a detail of some piece of hardware and you can guess what it is. You can compete (and eventually win something) on a regular basis, with a new challenge every month. But for now, you need to get “to the next round” through the next one, in February. Read more “Axagon Riddle (2/2024). Can you guess what’s in the photo?” »

Axagon Riddle (1/2024). Can you guess what’s in the photo?

Can you tell from the detail photo what hardware it is? Years ago you were very good at it, now it might be a bit more complicated, we’ll make it even harder. But we know you’re inquisitive and you like a challenge. The most successful solvers will again be rewarded with the chance to choose any Axagon products. This will already be relatively easy given the wide portfolio of practical ones. Read more “Axagon Riddle (1/2024). Can you guess what’s in the photo?” »

Fractal Design Flex 2 for free. First to write wins

Since we have no use for the Flex 2 holders from our recent review and also, FD doesn’t want them back, we’re giving them away. To readers who can take advantage of vertical mounting of the graphics card. There are only two available (black and white), so speed is of the essence. The first person to respond to this challenge gets to pick the colour, the second person will be sent the one left if they wish, and the third person in row is already writing late.

Not lucky last time? We still have the Cooler Master GX III Gold 850

One PSU contest is over, another one is starting. Cooler Master has donated its 850-watt GX III Gold model to our HWCooling contest. With a little luck, you can win one. It won’t be completely “free”, but you won’t break much of a sweat either. All you need to do is show a basic understanding of the Cooler Master power supply stuff. This will be especially easy for fans of the brand, but anyone can do it. Read more “Not lucky last time? We still have the Cooler Master GX III Gold 850” »

Win a DeepCool (PX1000G) PSU for powerful builds

If you are planning on building a more powerful PC with higher power draw, take a pause. In exchange for a moment of your time (to answer quick hardware questions), you can win a 1000W DeepCool power supply. That’s just enough to efficiently run an “unrestrained” Core i9-14900K CPU with a GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card. You can already connect the latter with a single connector, as the PX1000G is an ATX 3.0 power supply. Read more “Win a DeepCool (PX1000G) PSU for powerful builds” »

How well do you know MSI coolers? CoreLiquid E360 giveaway

Either way, it’s not going to be anything complicated. Read more “How well do you know MSI coolers? CoreLiquid E360 giveaway” »

Guess a fan vibration variance and win anything Endorfy

Can you guess how big the difference in vibration can be between the “best” and “worst” piece of the inexpensive Endorfy Stratus 120 PWM fan? We’ll take a look at this in the future, and your job will be to guess as accurately as possible. As a reward, whoever comes closest to the correct answer will receive any “cooling” product from Endorfy. In the case of smaller items, the prize can also be made up of multiple items.

The next fan in our test database will be… can you guess?

In the next fan test there will be a model for which many of you have been waiting for a long time. It will be quite easy to recognize it even from the photo, which reveals only a small part of it, a detail. Everyone who writes us what fan it is will be entered into a draw for one big pack of them. And it’s really worth entering, there aren’t many more attractive options in the 120mm fan field (and we’ve exhausted all the hints with this one).

Win 4× MSI MEG Silent Gale P12 premium fans

The Silent Gale P12 fans didn’t get a lot of “kudos”, which is a bit of an injustice considering their features. Certainly, MSI is not one of the established fan manufacturers and at the same time the price is set boldly high. But you don’t have to care about that now, and you can get a set of some of the best 120mm fans for free. All you have to do is write what you would use them for and also have a little bit of luck.

Your CPU is Rocket Lake or older? Write us for a 400W cooler

We’d be happy to give someone, whom it will help, an unconventional Zalman liquid cooler. The Reserator 3 Max Dual will definitely have a nice collector’s value someday, but it will have to wait for retirement. It may not support the latest platforms anymore, but it is still well equipped to run in many PCs with relevant performance for today. And it has the cooling performance to handle very high power Core i9-class processors as well. Read more “Your CPU is Rocket Lake or older? Write us for a 400W cooler” »

HWC puzzle (2022): Can you guess what’s in the photo?

Remember the series of picture puzzles from a few years ago? We’ll come back to them a little bit, or rather to their format. This time, however, it will not be anything regular, but a one-off event where one of the solvers will be rewarded with two Noctua NF-A12x25 LS-PWM fans. And why these? You’ll soon find out… but you may have already guessed, if you were able to identify which fan the detail in the photo at the head of the article belongs to.
