Benchmarks

 

Test System

 

Processor: AMD Athlon XP 1800+

 

Motherboard: Abit KX7333R

 

Memory: 256 Micron DDR

 

Video Card: ATI 8500 All In Wonder 128mb

 

Hard Disk: IBM 40GPX 20GB

 

Software Used: CPU Toast

 

Results

 

 

I used CPU Toast for this benchmark since it has proven to seriously max out your CPU with 100% load. As you can see above, the Ice Berg 1 water cooling kit performs slightly better then the Swiftech MCX 462 in both idle and load states.

 

What is astonishing is the noise level. The water cooling kit was extremely quiet (under 25 DBA) and it still maintained great performance. The Swiftech performed a bit worse but was almost double the DBA (40 DBA). The loudest part in my computer was my hard drive with the Ice Berg.
