    Evercool WC202, Water Cooling for Anyone - Conclusions


    (Page 9 of 9 )

    As it is obvious in the chart, the H20 cooling is much better than air coolers in all instances, with an average difference of 13.6C. That's substantial. The tests ran with the GPU and CPU water blocks installed did favor the CPU only, but it is such a minimal difference that I decided to leave both water blocks installed.

    Taking a step back, I must look at this product for what it is, a water cooling kit for those who are just getting their feet wet (yep, pun intended. I'm so clever). The WC202 is a bit of a diamond in the ruff. Not that it looks all that ruff. In fact everything that came in this kit was very well made and polished. Evercool has been somewhat of an unknown when it comes to water cooling, with the WC301 (their true all in one water cooler) and the WC201 (which the WC202 is just a slightly improved variation of). It pleases me to give such a positive review to a company with barely any street cred.

    Pros:

    • Everything that is needed is included.
    • Extremely user friendly instructions, including color pictures.
    • Water blocks lapped to a mirror-like finish.
    • Cooling, while not spectacular, is on par with much more expensive kits.
    • Quality is everything, and Evercool shows that they know this fact well.
    Cons:
    • Water spout and fan controller knob may interfere with front doors on cases.
    • Maybe a flow indicator built into the front of the drive somehow, would be nice.
    • Not the ultra-cooler that overclockers might desire, but also not intended for them.

    We at Dev Hardware would like to thank Evercool for the review sample. If you like to check out their site you can do so HERE. Otherwise feel free to head back to our HOMEPAGE or our FORUMS.
