Q6600 Temperature Testing

Idle Temperatures

At lower speeds the faster moving, higher static pressure fan found on the Big Typhoon keeps the Vendetta 2 from the number one spot; but when the heat load rises the OCZ's improved cooling characteristics start to shine and the Vendetta really starts to bring it’s A game.

Average Load Temperatures

Wow. This cooler posts even more impressive results than it did during the Dual core phase and increases the enhanced performance from 1°C to 1.1°C over its reference design Xigmatek. This to us proves that the dual results were not just a “fluke” and this cooler really is better than the Xigmatek it is based on; more importantly we now have a new top cooler which sets the performance bar awfully high. If I was OCZ's competition I would be awfully worried!
