Default AMA Aragon 900 Review

The introduction of the latest Intel i7 processors have certainly caused something of a shock with a TDP of a whopping 130W. Air cooling solutions have been adapted with dual fans, bigger heatsinks, and more heatpipes in order to try and keep the all important CPU cool. With Intel now revealing two new additions to the i7 range – the 975 and 950 – which run at 3.33GHz and 3.06GHz respectively even more emphasis has been placed on cooling.

Traditionally, air cooling is the lowest form of cooling followed by water, then phase changing and all the way up to liquid nitrogen and helium for extreme overclockers; without a doubt all of this and more will be put into practise at the Gigabyte Open Overclocking Championships (GOOC 2009) at Computex to see who can overclock the P45 the furthest, 8GHz is the current world record.

Anyway for the majority of users all of these extreme cooling solutions are either too complicated or too expensive and just not practical. However, water cooling has become more available and easier to use with kits like the one we will be looking at today - the AMA Aragon 900. However, kits like this have a seemingly bad reputation for comprising of a bunch of lower end components unlike custom builds. So let’s see if the Aragon 900 can buck the trend...
