DangerDen Custom Water Cooling Kit Review

Former staff writer    -   September 11, 2002


Testing:



Testing system:

  • Abit KR7A-133R motherboard
  • AMD XP 1800+ (1.5Ghz) AGOIA stepping
  • Geforce 2 MX video
  • 512MB PC2700 RAM
  • Windows XP


    I have done a couple things to my board that may or may not of helped with my overclocking. I placed a heatsink on the 6 power transistors (they were at 60°c and the heatsink lowered the temp a lot) and I also superglued a small fan on the heatsink of my northbridge chipset cooler.



    Testing procedure:

    I allowed the system to idle in windows for 10 mins after a cold boot, to get the idle temperature. I then ran CPUBurn for a total of 35mins to get the load results. I also shutdown the system and allowed it to cool for 10mins before running the next overclock test. The ambient temperature was 21.5-22.5°c.


    This test was done with stock CPU @ 1800+ 1.75v




    This test was done with stock CPU @ 1800+ 1.75v and I added water wetter to both of the water cooling systems. No really big temp drop like I had hoped :/




    This test was done with the CPU overclocked to 1730Mhz 1.80v.




    This test was done with the CPU overclocked to 1840Mhz 1.85v.




    This test was done with the CPU overclocked to 1888Mhz 1.85v. The Iceberg 1 had some hot temps with this overclock.





    This test was done with the CPU overclocked to 1925Mhz 2.02v. The Iceberg 1 could not cool the CPU enough to make it a stable OC. Windows crashed half way through the CPUBurn test and the last temp I saw before it crashed was 57.3°c ouch!
