To test the OCZ Vendetta 2 CPU Cooler I am going to record the processor temperatures while idle ( little to no CPU activity ) and at full load. To obtain the idle scores I am going to leave the computer alone for thirty minutes after disabling any services not needed to sustain Windows. To obtain the full load temperatures I will be running Stressprime 2004 Orthos Edition using the StressCPU test for four hours. I will complete this series of tests for both the stock speed and voltage of the Core 2 Duo E6600 processor and then overclocked to 3.6GHz with a voltage of 1.46 volts. To record the temperatures I will be using the SpeedFan 4.33 Utility. I will also be comparing the OCZ Vendetta 2 against two other CPU Coolers, as well as a water cooling setup from Danger Den, to see how the scores compare.
- Processor: Intel E6600 (Stock & Overclocked to 3.6GHz)
- Motherboard: Gigabyte X38-DS4 w/ Bios version F3
- Memory: Mushkin Redline XP2-8000 2x2GB 5-5-5-12
- Video Card: ASUS 8800 GT w/Forceware 169.25
- Power Supply: Ultra X2 750w Extreme Edition
- Hard Drive: 1 x Seagate 750GB SATA
- Opticals: Lite-On 8x DVD+/-RW
- O/S: Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
The sheer size and design of the OCZ Vendetta 2 did it's job by either having the same or better temperatures compared to the other coolers.
