Evercool WC202, Water Cooling for Anyone - Testing Temperatures with the Evercool Water Cooler
(Page 8 of 9 )
The test setup consisted of the following components:
Abit IC7 P4 3.0ghz Radeon 9600XT 4x 256mb PC3200 DDRAM 2x front 80mm intake fans 1x side 80mm intake fan 1x top 80mm outtake fan 1x rear 80mm outtake radiator fan
I have the WC202 in the topmost drive bay, with an empty one below that, and then two CD drives in the bottom two drive bays. I felt that this would allow the air to be properly pushed through the bottom of the internal radiator without obstructing the airflow. When testing with air, I used a Swiftech MCX462 and a 10k RPM fan, and an IceBerq4 GPU HSF. I used a CompuNurse to guage temperatures.
MemTest is a RAM reliability tester that runs under Windows. It evaluates the ability of your computer's memory to store and retrieve data accurately. In SySoft Sandra I did two censecutive runs of both the CPU Arithmetic Benchmark and the CPU Multi-Media Benchmark by using the Burn-in Wizard and selecting only those two. Finallly for the gaming I played exactly 20 minutes of Psychonauts (this game is pretty fun by the way, check it out). The results of these tests are as follows.
