-- Test and Results
-- Page: 1 2 3

   After letting our heatsink do battle with our TB 800Mhz, here are the results.  We pitted it against another affordable cooler, the Global Win FKP32.  Our testing included running our chip at stock 800Mhz (8*100) speed.  Recording the idle temperature and also the full load temperature.  The full load temperature was achieved by running Distributed.net's RC5 Client and also running 3DMark 2001.  After completing the stock speed test, we recorded the temperatures of the Tbird while it was overclocked.

   From the numbers, the Monster 3 dissipates enough heat to produce some good temperatures.  The heatsink was slightly warm to the touch but nothing that will burn your fingers.  Overall, the OCZ Monster 3 kept this chip cooled at stock and at overclocked speeds. Compared to the all copper Gladiator, this cooler dissipates heat just slightly lower.  

   In comparison with the price and performance, this would be a better bargain for the budget user.  Then again, why not spend a little bit more and get the all copper goodness : )

Pros:

  • Affordable

  • High powered fan

  • Huge surface area

  • Easy Installation

Cons:

  • Heatsink clip is not strong enough

  • Fan can be loud for some

  • No thermal grease supplied with the unit
