As it is obvious in the chart, the H20 cooling is much better than air coolers in all instances, with an average difference of 13.6°C. 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.
