I have seen it talked about on the forums that the Corsair Hydro Series H50 low cost water cooling system is equal or better than high end air, with some heated discussions taking place at time from people arguing for or against that statement. So, since Corsair was kind enough to send us an H50 system for testing, I decided to see if the H50 can equal some of the best air cooling solutions on the market.
The Megahalems comes with no fans of its own. You can choose your own fans, but what fans do you get? How well do they cool your system? How loud are they? When I decided I wanted to cool a 4GHz Core i7 860 with a Megahalems, I figured I would test a few fans and see how well they did. Needless to say, I sort of got carried away. I tested 65 fans in many configurations. Read all about it.
I’ve been asked to test the Prolimatech Mega Shadow heatsink. The purpose of the test is to see if lapping the heatsink will give any performance improvement. Since I already have a Megahalems in one of my secondary rigs, I found the idea interesting. The testing procedure will be simple. For each step, I will do three mounts and run the test app three times, then average the results.
