Test setup and results …
The test system should be known to our regular readers from previous water cooling tests. To freshen up, we briefly summarized the specs again:
Intel Core i7 6700K @ 4.8 GHz with 1.38V
Asus ROG Maximus VIII Extreme Motherboard
Asus ROG GTX 1080ti Strix OC
2x 8GB Crucial Ballistix Sport LT DDR4-2400
Of course, we were curious to see how the Phanteks Glacier C350i beats the NZXT Kraken with the help of the more powerful Aquastream XT pump. Again, we tested the Intel Core i7-6700K, which was overclocked to 4.8 GHz at 1.38V, for an hour with Prime 95 and then recorded the temperatures. The room temperature was 22°C and the fans on the 140 and 280 radiators ran with the silent setting.
