Budget cooler review



Today we will check the performance of three cooler with 4 Ghz intel processor . Since intel 45 Nm cpu demonstrated large overclocking capability it make sense to test how well perform budget cooler with such processor .

Test configuration and testing procedure :

We have tested all four budget cooling systems in two regimes: open case, ( motherboard placed horizontally ), cooler normal vertical position, and also in closed case ( motherboard vertical ) .

Here is the Configuration used :

  • Motherboard: abit IX38 quadGT (Intel x38), LGA 775, BIOS v1.2;
  • Processor: Intel core 2 Extreme QX9650, 3.0 GHz, 1.25 v, L2 2 x 6 mb., FSB: 333 MHz x 4, (Yorkfield, C0);
  • Thermal-paste: Arctic silver 5;
  • Video card: LeadTek winFast PC8800 GTS 512 mb 256 bits, 650/1800/1940 MHz;
  • Memory:
    • 2 x 1024 mb. DDR2 corsair dominator TWIN2X2048-9136C5D (1142 MHz/5-5-5-18/2.1 v);
    • 2 x 1024 mb. DDR2 CSXO-XAC-1200-2GB-KIT DIABLO (1200 MHz/5-5-5-16/2.4 v);
  • Memory Cooling system : CoolIT RAMFan (70 x 15 mm, ~1800 r/min);
  • Hard Disk : SATA- II 500 Gb, Samsung HD501LJ, 7200 rp/min, 16 mb., NCQ;
  • Case: ATX ASUS ASCOT black&Silver
  • Control panel and monitoring: Zalman ZM-MFC2;
  • Power unit: Enermax galaxy EGA1000EWL 1000 watts (135- mm fan ).

Here is the processor used :

Intel core 2 Extreme QX9650 ES

The Engineering sample processor intel core 2 Extreme QX9650 has the unlocked multiplier.

 Intel core 2 Extreme QX9650 specification

Note , that this so powerful processor in idle (energy economic state ) consumes only 16 watts.

In Today test the weakest four cooler was able to overclock the four core processor to 4 GHz with 1.525 v:

 Intel core 2 Extreme QX9650 cpu-z

Note the bios voltage monitoring section show ~1.45 v as processor voltage .

All tests were executed in Windows XP professional edition SP2 . For monitoring the processor temperature we used the monitoring utility SpeedFa version 4.34 Beta 38, which supports (Core sensor\'s). All automatic fan speed technologies were switched off. Max heat was achieved with Intel thermal analysis tool (TAT).

CPU heat up was with OCCT (OverClock checking tool) version 1.1.1b in peak load regime with 23- minute testing period :

 Intel core 2 Extreme QX9650 OCCT

Cooling efficiency and noise level

Let us directly pass to the tests results :

The cooler glacialTech igloo 5610 Silent is very weak for cooling properly the overclocked four core processor. 94 degrees in peak is a lot . On open case igloo 5610 Silent cooled the processor by 6 degree Celsius better .

The second cooler glacialTech igloo 5710 Silent demonstrates better results . This cooler is more effective than Igloo 5610 Silent by 9~12 degree Celsius , and it is compared with respect to the effectiveness of Ice hammer IH-4300 B in the quiet fan regime . We note that IH-4300 B is cheaper than Igloo 5710 Silent.

The noise level is measured from distances 3 cm, 1 and 3 meter . Let us look to the results:

GlacialTech relate to the quiet cooler category this explain the obtained result , all cooler has about the same noise level.

Conclusion

New cooler igloo 5610 Silent and Igloo 5710 Silent from GalcialTech proved to be sufficiently interesting .Cooling systems are sufficiently effective for their cost and have low noise level . But here igloo 5710 Silent is a bit overpriced.

The interesting note in today tests that 20 US dollars cooler are able to overclock practically to 4 GHz the four core processor (45 NM) .
