Test System Setup

Normally we would use the T.E.C.C. test system to evaluate the performance of a new CPU cooler, but the system is now one state over with Chad Sebring, TweakTown's new Cooling Editor. Chad will start in January and this review came just one day after the T.E.C.C. was disassembled and carted away.

Over the last few months I have been playing with a new software tool called OCCT, OverClock Checking Tool. OCCT allows the user to test stability while also plotting CPU core temperatures to graphs. This feature is rather useful for monitoring idle and load temperature.

You can learn more about OCCT here.

Test System

Processors: Intel QX6700 2.66GHz OCed to 2.93 GHz (Supplied by Intel)

Motherboard: Gigabyte X38-DQ6 (Supplied by Gigabyte)

Memory: Thermaltake / Geil RAM Orb PI (Supplied by Thermaltake)

Graphics Card: XFX 8800 GTX (Supplied by XFX USA)

Enclosure: Cooler Master Cosmos (Supplied by Cooler Master)

Cooling: Thermaltake MAX Orb (Supplied by Thermaltake)

Operating System: Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate X64 (Supplied by Microsoft)

For the control cooler I chose the Thermaltake Max Orb that I reviewed back in December of 2007. This cooler has been used with this system off and on since it first arrived in the lab.
