Hyper 212 - "Bottlenecking"? - Page 3

post #21 of 22

Despite the increased heat dissipation of the CPU, the Swiftech is still superior to the Corsair H100i as well as to the Phanteks. The H220 is 5°C better than the H100i at the same speed of the fans (1200 and 1000 RPM, the Corsair not coping with the overclocked CPU at 800 RPM). It is only by running its fans at higher speeds that the Corsair H100i can match the performance of the Swiftech H220 but that’s no consolation since these systems are incomparable in terms of noise at their top speeds.

Interestingly, installing two Corsair AF120 fans on the Swiftech radiator improves the cooler’s performance by 2°C at peak CPU load only at 1670 and 800 RPM. The performance remains the same at the medium speeds (1200 and 1000 RPM). The Phanteks PH-TC14PE is 2 to 4°C inferior to the Swiftech H220.

And finally, we wanted to check out if the H200 would be able to keep the CPU stable at even higher clock rate and voltage. So, we increased the voltage to 1.485 volts and overclocked our CPU to 4.625 GHz. The Swiftech H220 turned out to be capable of making the CPU stable at such settings but only at the maximum speed of its default or alternative fans:

The top CPU temperature is identical in both cases, so the default Helix 120 fans are as efficient as the alternative Corsair AF120 fans in this case.

Same data I used for my specs.

H220 out performs Phanteks PH-TC14PE by 2c @ 1100rpm*
H220 out performs H100 by 4.5c. @ 1100rpm*
Phanteks PH-TC14PE out performs H100 by 3c @ 1100rpm*

*averaged 1000rpm temp and 1200rpm temp for 1100rpm temp.

Not much difference in my book. Remount and rerun all the testing 4 or 5 times and I'll bet those figures will change.

FrostyTech tested 4 colors of Phanteks PH-TC14PE coolers and had a 0.8c spread.... 4 identical coolers on same test platform.

White = 14.8c
Red . =. 14.0c
Orange 14.5c
Blue . = 14.4c

And no, I do not believe red is .8c better cooling than white. biggrin.gif
