nPowerTek Heat Column Waterblock

@ 2005/12/30
The P4 die test is included as a point of interest - I must caution that these results have no comparison to others, as the P4 die tester is new and I don't have many results to compare against yet. It does appear that the P4 die tester is a very tough test, as the die temps are high; I will be placing a thermocouple on the case as another measurement point.

Test Results indicate that the nPowerTek Heat Column Waterblock's pressure drop (or head loss) across the waterblock is very high at 0.9 gpm; flow resistance such as this means that nPowerTek will require a high power waterpump to attain high flow rates. However, it appears that the performance increase may not be worth the added expense - an interesting turn of events.

but 0.22 C/W compared to 0.12 C/W for top performer from Swiftech (Storm)
