Testing

 

Now we get into the fun part, testing the cooler!

 

We used two video cards for this test. We used an nVidia Ti4200 Turbo, supplied to us by the good people at Albatron. This video card has been able to score some serious overclocked speeds, even beating matching Ti4600 muscle.

 

For our ATI system, we used an ATI Radeon 9700 Pro supplied to us by our friends at ATI in Canada.

 

GPU Temperatures

 

 

 

You can see that the cooler drops the core temperature rapidly down on both cards. When under load the temperature rises but is still well under any air cooling solution limit.

 

Max Core Speed

 

 

 

Idle we were able to obtain incredible core speeds. With the Swiftech cooler we managed much better core speeds compared with air cooling, defiantly an overclockers delight.
