Testing:

Testing will be performed by running Orthos to load the CPU to 100%. Temperatures will be recorded at idle and 100% load at stock (3200+ 2.0GHz) and overclocked (2.5 GHz).


Testing Setup:

  • AMD Athlon64 Processor 3200+ (Venice Core) SKt 939
  • ABIT AN8-SLI (BIOS 21, nVidia 6.86)
  • 4x512 MB OCZ EL DDR PC-3200 Platinum Rev 2 1GB (2-2-2-5)
  • AMD Stock CPU cooler
  • OCZ Vendetta CPU Cooler
  • PowerColor X800GT (Catalyst 7.10)
  • PowerColor Theatre 550 PCIe 1x
  • SIIG SATA Raid PCI Card
  • Silverstone STEF50 500W
  • 1x250GB Maxtor SATA
  • 2x400GB Seagate SATA
  • Thermaltake Shark case
  • Plextor PX-716SA 16X DVD RW SATA
  • HL 4164B 16X DVD RW IDE
  • Windows XP Professional SP2

Overclocked settings are as follows:

  • Multiplier = 10
  • External Freq = 250
  • CPU = 1.5V
  • Timings = 2-3-2-5
  • Memory Voltage = 2.8V
  • Chipset Voltage = 1.7V
  • Hyper Transport Voltage = 1.3V

Overclocked:

 

The OCZ Vendetta keeps it cool (pun intended) and barely increased the noise output of the case, which was nice. There was no measurable difference with the fan pointed at the top of the case or the bottom. The stock cooler and the Ajigo couldn’t keep up with the increased temps from the voltage push.
