OCZ Vanquisher Review

» Discuss this article (3)


Testing will be performed by running Orthos to load the CPU to 100%. Temperatures will be recorded at idle and 100% load at stock (6000+ @ 3.0 GHz) and overclocked (6000+ @ 3267 MHz) settings. The Vanquisher will be pitted against the stock AMD cooler, as well as its bigger brother, the Vendetta. Idle temps are recorded after 20 minutes idle on the desktop. Load temps are recorded after 30 minutes of 100% load from Orthos.

Testing Setup:

Overclocked settings:

  • CPU Speed: 15x218 = 3267 MHz
  • CPU Voltage: 1.43
  • RAM Speed: 436 MHz
  • RAM Voltage: 1.9v
  • RAM Timings: 5-5-5-16-1T





While not a world record beater, the OCZ Vanquisher does exactly what it is supposed to do. Provide an alternative cooling solution that offers better performance than the stock heatsink. At the overclocked settings, the Vanquisher fell short of the Vendetta by only two degrees Celsius while beating the stock solution by seven. Decent performance for the dollars spent.
