CoolIT Eliminator Test System

We have recently tested the Vigor Monsoon II Lite, Corsair Nautilus 500 and the Thermaltake Big Typhoon VX coolers, so we will also including those numbers in the graphs to help show our readers what a competing air, TEC and water cooling solution can do.

Here is the Intel Test Platform:

To test out the Vigor Gaming Monsoon II TEC cooler, we ran it on our Intel Core 2 Duo test platform which was then run at default and overclocked settings. All the temperatures were obtained by using Core Temp Beta 0.94 after sitting at idle for one hour and then again under full processor load for 30 minutes. We used three profiles to test the MACS Monsoon II Lite TEC Cooler at.  The room temperature was kept a constant 20C (68F) for all benchmarking.

Profile 1: The Normal User (No Overclocking)

  • CPU Multiplier: 7x
  • CPU voltage: 1.2000V
  • FSB Voltage: 1.20V
  • FSB: 1066MHz
  • Memory Voltage: 2.20V
  • Final CPU Frequency: 1.86GHz

Profile 2: The Average Enthusiast (Mild Overclocking)

  • CPU Multiplier: 7x
  • CPU voltage: 1.4000V
  • FSB Voltage: 1.30V
  • FSB: 1600MHz
  • Memory Voltage: 2.20V
  • Final CPU Frequency: 2.80GHz

Profile 3: The Hardcore Overclocker (Major Overclocking)

  • CPU Multiplier: 7x
  • CPU voltage: 1.50625V
  • FSB Voltage: 1.40V
  • FSB: 1960MHz
  • Memory Voltage: 2.20V
  • Final CPU Frequency: 3.43GHz

Enough talk about the CoolIT Eliminator, let’s take a look at the performance numbers!
