OCZ Vendetta, Freeze Paste

OCZ Vendetta, Freeze Paste


To test the OCZ Vendetta we performed sustained rendering within Cinebench R10 and monitored the temperatures at full load with the highest value being noted below. Cinebench loads all four cores of our quad-core chip to 100% and so is a great stress test. Idle temperatures were also recorded after the system had been running on the Windows desktop for 30minutes without use. Temperature readings were taken from Everest Ultimate.

At the stock X9770 speed of 3.2GHz (1600fsb) the Vendetta really pushes our favourite air cooler, the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro, in terms of performance. The load temperatures are identical but at idle the Vendetta is able to knock off an extra degree from the CPU. The only downside to the figures is that the OCZ at maximum RPM is 300 above the Arctic Cooling model.

We next tested the two coolers at overclocked settings, again using the maximum speed of each fan and once again the performance was very close. When both coolers used MX-2 paste there was a tie on load temperatures with the Freezer 7 Pro winning, but only just, at idle. This changed when we applied OCZ freeze to the Vendetta and it outperformed the Arctic Cooling model by a small amount when at idle and load. The overall result we can take from this is that when both coolers are running at their maximum speeds on a heavily overclocked CPU the Freezer 7 Pro cools marginally better but OCZ win the battle of thermal compounds.
