I have not clicked the link yet; but I'm betting on the "Shogun" :)

edit: okay I was right, and I'm pretty sure the Scythe with silent 120mm fan gives better noise/performance ratio:)

no dBA/noise measurements makes for poor review in the end; because the temperature numbers alone no longer hold all the info because of the different fan sizes and types/speeds

An uncommon processor for the test to show to people with common processor. Overclocking processor without voltage increase does not generate as much additional heat as with.


So, I took an Intel Pentium 4 521 (2.8GHz, 1MB L2 cache, Prescott E0 core) for the tests – this processor can work at 4.06GHz at its default 1.35V voltage and at 4.2GHz at 1.425V voltage.
Hopefully, by the end of 2006, the Hot Potato Prescott will be memory; together with giant heatsinks.

It was stated @30°C room and 35°C system; you'd better get an A/C instead :)

Not so, if you are using A64; or Intel Mobile.
