Default 6 High End CPU Water Blocks Tested and Compared

In this group test we compare the performance of six high end water blocks from Koolance, Danger Den, D-Tek, Swiftech and EnzoTech on an overclocked Intel Quad Core Processor. Which one keeps the CPU running the coolest? Read on to find out

Love this article. I would expect less difference at such modest heat output, 4Ghz @ 1,5V CPU would definitely make the Fuzion even more worth its price.


PS: 128W IDLE is huge, still... that makes 30W per core. Eat that Atlon 64!

Yes, why didn't he use more voltage and more OC?

Not really needed? Would only be useful for showing performance scaling, which while I agree would be interesting to compare it is not as useful as showing results at 3Ghz. The vast majority of overclocks run Q6600's at 3Ghz, so this was the best scenario to test with.

I have a great deal of testing to try on my own setup, I don't see results nearly as good as those. Throwing in the best air cooler (120 Extreme?) would be interesting to see included in that setup.

A water overclocker doesn't aim at 3 GHz and he won't stop below 1.5V either.

a water overclocker will go for silence and performance, at 3ghz it's an ideal mix of both!

What JMke said. Neither myself nor any other watercoolers I know run their systems beyond the best mix of cost/performance, or overclock/voltage. Most of us tend to overclock to find the limits, then settle on using the sweet spot for 24/7 use. For Q6600 users that often is 3GHz.
