Thermaltake V1 and MaxOrb CPU Coolers
May 22, 2007

Testing:

For testing purposes, the various Thermaltake coolers were installed in a system with the following additional components:

Intel Bad Axe 2 motherboard
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 processor
2GB (2x 1024MB) Mushkin XP2-8500 memory
Seagate 750GB SATA 3 Gbps hard drive
256MB Gigabyte 7900GT PCI Express video card
Mushkin 650 Watt PSU
Windows XP Pro with SP2
All latest drivers


Testing will be fairly straightforward for these coolers, and will consist of monitoring the idle and load temperatures of the Q6600 processor at stock speeds, and while overclocked to 3.0 GHz. Idle temperatures will be recorded while the system is booted to the Windows desktop with nothing else running for a minimum of 10 minutes. Load temperatures will be recorded while the latest version of OCCT runs for a minimum of 30 minutes.

All temperatures were monitored using the Core Temp utility, and the room temperature was held at approximately 21 degrees Celsius. As each cooler was installed onto the CPU, a fresh application of Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste was used after the CPU and cooler base were cleaned with rubbing alcohol.

The results can be seen in the graph below, and show that of these heavy weights, the V1 is the undisputed champion.
