Bij Overclockers Australia hebben ze een comparison neer gemikt tussen 4 nieuwe Pentium 3 coolers, de UltraCool UC-S2, UltraCool UC-S2 modified, RDJD P301 en de RDJD P302. De aangepaste UC-S2 van Ultracool bleek het best uit de test:
Well, the RDJD units show themselves to be quite respectable if not spectacular. The P302 is about a degree cooler than the P301 so it appears there really is a difference between the units. The fan RDJD uses is loud though, there's a definite low-pitched buzzing sound. Given they're the same cost as the standard UltraCool unit which is better and quieter, it's hard to recommend them.
Reversing the fan didn't have a positive effect on any of the units, noise or cooling-wise.. There's some wind noise from the big fan on the modified UltraCool, of course, but it's a fairly unobtrusive hiss - and the cooling performance is very impressive. In fact, even in standard form the unit offers surprisingly good cooling. If you wanted to go for the big monster (another for the clear perspex case?) the modified UltraCool, or "Mega 80mm P3 Cooler" as it's called on the website, is probably a pretty good buy.
