CoolIT Freezone Elite CPU Cooler

Test Results

Test Results
Below are the results gained from the testing of the Coolit Freezone Elite cooler with various settings.
 Stock Temps
Overclocked Temps
The higher temperatures recorded for the target of 15oC caused the unit to run at the same 100% power as the 0oC settings, this should have meant the maximum temperatures were the same. While I believe they would indeed have equalised if given a longer period of time, the 30 minute limit was adhered to and temperatures taken regardless.
The graphs below illustrate the effect of coolant temperatures on CPU temperatures with the same settings used above.
Stock Idle Relation
Stock Load Relation
I should point out that the increased starting point seen in the second graph for the coolant is due to the coolant not reaching 12 degrees at these settings. The cooler was given an hour at 100% power to pull down to the temperature, but did not succeed.
Overclocked Idle Relation
The fourth graph illustrating the temperatures at load with overclocked settings would be helpful but after the temperatures reached with stock settings at load, I do not feel the CPU would survive testing at the higher coolant temperatures.

Seen those, love the idea of TEC cooling, got me thinking about doing something of my own, but then i realised how much money would be needed and thought against it. XD

From some other reviews i read, that thing sounds like a rocket taking off on full load, and that price tag?!?!? DAMN!!! no thanks.Quote

Mr. Smith
[email protected]; they can barely handle a low end dual core oc'd and they cost a fortune.

Thumbs down.Quote

£250 = ouch.

If it was competitively priced I think people would drum up even curious interest, I probably would.Quote

What a horrible horrible finish on the block... That's unacceptable at £250.Quote

Yea I dont really get whats going on there, low performance is one thing and there certainly is a market for it (although its probably priced itself out of that market) but a decent finish on the CPU block is the least you can hope for at that price. £5 Akasa coolers manage a better surface

It's an odd one because it really is fantastically well put together and has a lot of potential, just falls short in one too many important areas. I was speaking to Jim about it pre-publish and we both thought it was odd that the pelt is used to cool the water rather than to cool the CPU directly and the coolant / heatsink system used to cool the TEC Quote
