Default Before & After

Thought it might be interesting to have a spot to drop quick and dirty comparison results from new upgrades / drivers.

Nothing fancy, but it would give folks a chance to see what kind of real world results they might expect if they are looking at a particular piece of hardware / new driver.

Just replaced a stock intel cooler with an A-C Freezer 7 Pro. Still using stock tim from it, and it's just been installed so no break in period......

Load temps (18 minutes orthos E6600 @ 3200 1.48V)

Stock intel - CPU-56c / NB-23c / System-20c / HD-20c / Core1-62c / Core2-62c

Freezer 7 Pro - CPU-48c / NB-23C / System-20C / HD-20C / Core1-55C / Core2-55C

I'm pretty impressed, this is just about the cheapest aftermarket cooler around (that works.... :) ), and it snaps into the motherboard without needing any backplate.....

5 hour break-in and I'm now running same temps (49 / 55 / 55) @ 3380 1.52V after 1 hr Orthos.

You can colour me impressed with a $27 aftermarket cooler..... :)

The Freezer 7 is a great little cooler. And the price is certainly right :)

Too many people figure they need to spend $50 on a massive cooler to get a decent result for a cooler but in retrospect you can spend $25 and get one that works better and more efficient than the stock cooler.

Just upgraded from a 3.06GHz P4 to a C2D E6750 right now at stock speeds. SuperPi Calculation of 4Million used to take 4+ minutes. Now it takes 1:50.

Heh.... and that's only using half of the processing power of each core.... :)

What's your 1M super-pi score?

Current high score for 1M is 19.172s. It's like night and day when comparing this chip to that P4!

EDIT:
After a 13% overclock to 3.0 GHz 1M score is now 17.079s. 2 seconds less, woot!
