Again we test this cooler with our idle and full load combo.  Our full load test includes running Distributed.net's RC5 client and Mad Onion's 3D Mark 2001 benchmark.  We tested with the thermal pad and with arctic silver.  The tests are done at stock speed and of course at overclock speeds.  Here are the results of this cooler, and some results compared with some other coolers we have tested.

   From the numbers, the Gladiator combined with arctic silver proved to be the absolute best at lowering our TBird down.  Add the fact that this all copper heatsink is under $30.00 and you have a great cooler on hand.  After flipping the fan around so it sucked the air out of the heatsink, the results were even better!  

   Thanks to OCZ for providing us with this sample, a very nice product.



Pros:

  • All copper!
  • Strong cpu clip (finally)
  • Fast 36CFM fan
  • Affordable for what it offers


Cons:

  • CPU clip was hard to push down (Be Careful!)
  • Thermal Pad was not applied correctly
