I actually ment to put that part in quotations, in regards to that section in the Review Sky, but my brain was going faster than my hands and I missed that little part.
I saw the Tests with the AMD Black Sheep, and hands down it did its job great.

Sorry I didn't clairfy when I was talking in my last post,

Pardon my ignorance, but for future reviews it would be nice include an overview of how TEC cooling operates and what it is.

Kinda like how you explain the GT200 and RV770 architecture before each video card review.

Just my thoughts on what I thought was missing from your review.

Excellent point. We will definately do that in future TEC cooling reviews.

Sorry about that anthonee1230. In paragraph 2 and 3 of this previous review linked below is a decent overview of what a TEC / Peltier cooler is. And this info certainly will be in future reviews ;)

Default install V10 on i7 920 (at 1.5Vcore and 1.5VTT)

ok I install my V10 on the weekend, and I was running a borrowed True 120 on my i7 920 before and the results:

TRUE 120 vs V10

TRUE
stock speed (auto volts)
57c

V10
stock speed (auto volts)
59c

TRUE
3.36Ghz(1.4Vcore) 1.4VTT
64c

V10
3.36Ghz(1.4Vcore) 1.4VTT
64c

TRUE
4.2Ghz(1.5Vcore) 1.5VTT
83c

V10
4.2Ghz(1.5Vcore) 1.5VTT
80c

so at stock CPU speed the True 120 beat the V10 by a little
with a mild overclock (160Bclk) they tied
with high overclock (200Bclk) and a fair bit voltage the V10 starts to pull away (only by a little)

all in all I am happy with the V10, as I price matched it to within $30 of the True
and I like the looks.
not a bad cooler, not an amazing cooler (well I guess anything that keeps up with the True is decent)

yes I kinda hoped it would perform better, it seems like it does perform a little better at very high overclocks and voltages, but only very small amount, not worth the extra $ if u ask me, honestly. But what is funny, is if I put my hand on the TEC, when it is running P95 at 1.5Vcore, and CPU is at 80c, u can feel with ur hand that TEC is quite cold, compared with the rest of cooler (that feels quite warm), but it seems like all that cold doesn't get all transfered to ur CPU. I like the looks of it, but it is a little loud as well (on load), I have to get some pics to upload, it barely fit in my Mozart TX! which is no small case..lol
very close to touching the front fans (also running 16 fans in case now)
and no more room for my ram cooler, but it does blow a lot of air on ram anyway


btw
ran P95 for 15min to get these temps (I tried to keep ambient temp the same)

and I should add the True had 2 fans in push/pull config, the stock one then I added a 2nd 120mm Antec

If it wasn't what you said about how difficult it is to install, I may have considered one. I just fiddle with my PC too much to have a cooler that's difficult to replace easily.

Great review...very thorough. I learned a lot from it. Thanks!

Hello there.

I'm pretty new to this forum, and the first thing I did upon signing up was post a build of mine, with a major question about it.

Some helpful people have since pointed me to this thread.

My build involves a current EVGA X58 board, and I still need to know: does the V-10 even fit on that board at all?

EVGA put some very large heatsinks in some places that could prove very bad for the V-10's size. I could do some math, I know, but I wouldn't trust my answers. I want to know about it from the guys who reviewed it, who held it in their hands.

Hah, it's the one thing I hate most about trying to buy something through the internet. You can't touch anything that you're trying to buy.

There is a thread on the EVGA forums, and a few people with EVGA X58 mobo's are running the V10 cooler. It fits.


btw I remounted my V10 with MX-2 paste and dropped a couple degrees (not hitting 80c anymore)...maybe a better mount this time.
78c though...lol

but
that is an i7 with 1.5Vcore and 1.5VTT (no HT though)
beats my borrowed True 120 by almost 5c (which is decent)
and then
I tested with HT on, I really doubt there is any air cooler made that can keep an i7 at 1.5v Vcore and VTT cool with multithreading enabled. I got up to 90c in a few short minutes with HT on (P95). That TEC cannot do anything when faced with HT.
