I find it hard to believe that the ancient Danger Den TDX is better than the Storm and Fuzion....

I find it hard to believe that the temp difference between one of the test setups was close to 42.

26-09-2007, 07:59:18

Anyone got linkage to the full testing?? Those results go against the results of more or less every tester worldwide who's done any comparative work of current vs older gen blocks...

I'm afraid that's a set of test results I'd rather summarily ignore until full details of the testing are revealed, as the results look VERY fishy.

EDIT: In fact, the results look like all testing was done on an exposed die old 32bit processor (Barton generation possibly, which I know HWLuxx were using as their testrig a while ago)... then the results fall kind of into shape... altho the position of the TDX is still way off in relation to everything else...

I know this is a rather large thread revival, but did it ever get reviewed?

Doubt it but there has been random reviews using loads that it has featured in and its nothing special. But then again we have v2 and GTZ now.

Kelvin and centigrade are equal in temperature difference. However if you say it cooled to 0*C then it cools to 273K. It won't cool to less than 273K because it relies on ambient temperatures so 30K is way off. As someone pointed out to do that you would need liquid helium or perhaps liquid hydrogen.
