Deepcool Ice Matrix 400 Review


Testing and Setup:

Testing of the heatsink will involve applying a load simulated by Prime95, using small FFTs in stock and overclocked scenarios. Both idle and load temperatures will be recorded. Load temperatures will be the maximum value displayed in RealTemp after running eight threads in Prime95 for one hour, and idle temperatures will be the minimum recorded value by RealTemp with no computer usage after one hour. The temperature values for each of the four cores will be averaged and displayed in the graphs below. The ambient temperature is held at a constant 22.5 °C throughout testing of the Ice Matrix 400, as well as the comparison heatsinks. All the data shown in the graphs below is in degrees Celsius. The included thermal paste from Deepcool will be used during testing, and thermal pastes as packaged from the other coolers were used with each heatsink, respectively. The fan on the Ice Matrix 400 will be run at full speed for these tests.

Testing Setup:

Comparison Heatsinks:








For the price, which is said to launch at around $40, the Ice Matrix 400 is a very good cooler. It has a very simple design that works well and is not obtrusive to any motherboard component that I could tell. It does fall behind on the overclocked load test, but for its size this was expected. Stay tuned for the conclusion of this review where I will wrap up all of my thoughts about the Deepcool Ice Matrix 400.
