Corsair Nautilus 500: Water Cooling Goes Mainstream

For comparison, I also included the results for the Corsair COOL, Koolance Exos2, Koolance ICM-505, Cooler Master Aquagate Mini R120, a Thermalright XP-120 HSF (with 120mm Panaflo L1A and 120mm Delta SHE) and the stock OEM aluminum HSF that comes bundled with the Athlon 64 3200+. All cooling systems were tested on the same CPU under the same conditions.

As you can see, the Nautilus500 external water cooling kit from Corsair did an excellent job of cooling the A64 3200+ processor. With the fan set to High speed the noise level was obvious but not overbearing. Switching the radiator fan to Low speed only made the noise level slightly quieter (still far from silent), which I found surprising. There seems to be noticeable pump noise resonating from the plastic enclosure, even though the pump is isolated with foam tape.
