Christmas Cracker Mayhem Review
The Ultimate Load Test
Here at Overclock3D, we love to test our systems hardware to destruction; despite our expansion into festive products, our principles remain unchanged.
Without further a do, we set about breaking our test samples. Below is our first attempt.
Just to remind, from top to bottom we have the Luxury, Value and Standard Cracker. During our first test, only the value cracker succeed in its loud "BANG". The Luxury Cracker had to be tugged on a second time while holding onto the cardboard strip and disappointingly the Standard Cracker broke on both on both ends on first attempt. Upon closer inspection it appeared as though the internal cardboard strip was broken on arrival; disappointing effort.
The process was repeated until we had exhausted our rediculous stockpile of party crackers. The "POP" success rate can be found in the graph below.
On the whole, these results are fairly acceptable. While the 67% rate for the luxury cracker may not seem brilliant, one must remember that they arrived in a smaller sample of 6 rather than 10 and 12. One's mileage may vary and will also depend on technique.
Next up, the gifts.
