Changing over waterblocks and running the same series of tests on the XSPC X2O Delta produced some interesting results which can be seen below:
Water Temperature @ Idle - 35.5 Deg C
Water Temperature @ Load - 38.8 Deg C
Water Temperature @ OC - 41.2 Deg C
However, if we average out the temperatures over the four cores and subtract the ambient temperature from the total we should arrive at our ΔT difference.
Alphacool NexXxos X2 Bold HIGHFLOW
ΔT Idle - 4.4 Deg C
ΔT Load - 16.4 Deg C
ΔT OC - 31.15 Deg C
XSPC X2O Delta
ΔT Idle - 3.0 Deg C
ΔT Load - 15.75 Deg C
ΔT OC - 31.5 Deg C
The Alphacool NexXxos X2 Bold manages to beat out the XSPC X2O Delta waterblock in the overclocking stakes, but comes in just behind for the idle and load testing. Now that we have analysed the Alphacool X2 Bold HIGHFLOW waterblocks performance, let's head over the page to see how the block perfomed as a whole in our conclusion...
