something must be wrong, I can't see how the regular Freezer gets better performance than the pro

I'll see what I can get done with mine on the x2 4400+

Both were at 100%, I guess margin of error.

I spent days verifying those results.. as I'm with you on this one, the results look odd. However in the test setup I used I could not get different results, the normal freezer marginly outperformed the Pro version.


here's what the Managing Director R&D of AC had to say about this

Quote:
I cannot explain your results. In our tests on test dummies as well as in a real computer system, the Pro version performs definitely better.

Your case shows how important the environment is. Since ATX doesn't specify the place of the CPU, the alignment of the components on the mainboard, the airflow and so on exactly, an integrated solution is not possible. This means that in every computer, you will receive a little bit different results.
Solution: BTX with a total thermal solution. One team developed all the coolers, fans, chassis and PSU. This way we can assure a perfect "team work" of all the components. This will be the future, not a chassis from A, a PSU from B, a fan from C ...
You also don't buy a car where the engineer of the chassis never heard anything about the engine.

I have some stock x2 4400+ results now. (2x2.2 GHzs 1 MB cache, 1.33V according to motherboard)

with 1400RPM, it stays nicely at 44 after rising from the idle temp of about 30.


However, Im using a motherboard which has the CPU nicely in the middle with a lot of air around and the airflow of the 120mm exhaust and the 120mm PSU fan helping as well.

n/o Rutar, but those performance numbers mean practically nothing (all we learn is that your PC is not overheating)

Well, it means it works even with a slower moving fan =P, now I got to find a way to silence the x1800XT


I'm aware it's impossible to do a comparison to the review results.

Size of graphic card plays a role in case ventilation. The bigger it gets the more it negatively impact case air flow.

As for as BTX form factor is concern in having a fix CPU location; Intel boards (ATX) have always been in a fix position ..... making it irrelevant in the explaination.

but relevant for the roundup and the results as this is tested on A64

but I get your comment on the BTX note, since AMD won't adopt to it any time soon.

but having one company provide case&cpu cooling will (hopefully) garantuee optimised airflow

@Rutar, at 2.2 with 1.33v you can run that fan at 5v for sure
