Sysop Solutions heeft een review van de Vantec P3-D5030 gepost. Hier een stukje over de performance van deze Pentium III cooler:
We know from previous tests, just how the stock Intel heat sink performs (or how well it under-performs). We decided to strap one of our nifty thermal probes as close to the CPU slug as possible and see just how much cooler our processor would run once the P3-D5030 was working for us.
Once everything was in place we fired up 3D Mark 99 and ran it for approximately one hour. We also powered on our air conditioning unit and kept our room temperature at a very stable 23 C for the duration of the tests. The Vantec cooler managed to keep the CPU temperature, under load to 44 C. very impressive if compared to the stock Intel sink which barely held at 51 C after one hour of 3D Mark 99.
We also decided to see just how fast we could run our 450 PIII before things got too hot to handle. Cruising along at 558MHz, we ran QuakeII for a further hour and still everything remained stable. FYI, we were not even able to run our PIII at 558MHz with the Intel heat sink. This can only mean one thing, not only is the P3-D5030 a great cooling solution, it is good enough that it allows you to moderately overclock your CPU, and I am sure that will leave you with a smile on your face (and a few extra bucks in your pocket book).
