7 Hot New Water Cooling Systems Tested

Cooling Performance: Convincing

The cooling performance convinces. With a thermal resistance of 0.32 K/W the cooling system reaches a good value. The noise level at 53 dB(A) cannot be said to be low. An even better cooling performance is reached with this watercooling system if you use a second radiator, as recommended by Swiftech. This allows the thermal resistance to drop to 0.27 K/W. For this purpose the radiators are put into series. However, this also causes the noise level to increase to 55 dB(A), although this is still tolerable.
