Bij Thresh's FiringSquad is een review geplaatst van de Swiftech MC1000 peltier cooler. Lees het hier.
We were only able to test Celeron PPGA processors with our evaluation unit, and we have no complaints about the Swiftech's performance with the celery. We can't recommend the MC1000 for Pentium II and Pentium III CPUs until we actually test the cooler with those processors. We're not sure how the MC1000 cools the cache on the P2 and P3 processors. The Swiftech offers a "P3 Milled" MC2000 cooler where the "cold plate is milled down, to raise the L2 area, and provide maximum cooling to the cache." The MC1000 doesn't have a "milled" version. The external cache on the P2 and P3 processors often determines the overclockability of a processor, and we can't recommend the MC1000 for P2 and P3 CPUs until we test it ourselves.
We don't have any cache cooling questions about the Slot-1 and PPGA Celerons. The on-die cache gets cooled with the rest of the core on the Celeron processors. The P3 Coppermine processors will have 256k on-die cache, and we have no doubt the MC1000 will perform well with the next generation P3 processors.
Frankly, we would use this cooler in our own Celeron systems. The installation and setup might bother some dainty people, but we have no problem with it.
