Cooling/Water Cooling by DUR0N @ 2003-04-16

Thanks to Colorcase.be we were able to put head 2 head 3 different out-of-the-box and ready-to-go water cooling kits. We threw a highend aircooling solution in the mix to present you with this lowbudget water chilled roundup!

The tests!

The tests!

Let's boil some CPU's!
I used the following configuration while testing the kits. All parts remained the same throughout the whole review to keep things simple.

Test system with the SLK800 installed


  • AMD XP1700+ T-bred B
  • ABIT KX333
  • Corsair 256mb PC3200 XMS
  • MSI GeForce 4 Ti4400

    To ensure the kits are tested until they reach their maximum capacity, three different series of tests were run. One on standard speeds/voltage, one on small overclock and minor voltage increase and one on a mad overclock/voltage. Of course we made a difference between idle and load temperatures, because that’s where the water-cooling really kicks into action.
