Cooling 3D Style - Gigabyte cool the clocks - Benchmarks - Test System Setup and AMD Athlon XP Results

When we think of processor cooling devices most of us would first think of Thermaltake, CoolerMaster or OCZ. What about if we told you to think of Gigabyte? Start thinking about it! Gigabyte has just released their very first cooler for AMD Athlon XP and 64 as well as Intel Pentium 4. We've got Gigabyte's 3D cooler on the test bed. Come see just what it is capable of when we push some more MHz through the processors!

Test System Setup


For this setup we have used three separate PC systems to test this cooler on the P4, K7 and K8 platforms. We used an AMD Athlon XP 2500+ for our AMD K7 testing, Intel Pentium 4 3.2GHz for our Intel Pentium 4 testing and an AMD Athlon 64 3200+ for our AMD K8 testing.


For comparison, we tested the cooler against the stock coolers that each CPU is supplied with to determine its overall ability as a stock replacement.


AMD Athlon XP 2500+ Stock Speeds



AMD Athlon XP 2500+ Overclocked to 3200+



Here we see the Gigabyte cooler doing a much better job than the stock cooling system that AMD supplies.
