Crossover Mission II Water Cooling Kit @ Viperlair

Crossover Mission II Water Cooling Kit @ Viperlair



So having seen how this water cooling system works, what can we conclude about it?  Lets look at each part of the water cooling system.
First lets look at the packaging.  The external package is fairly simple and functional if nothing else, but is not flashy by any means at all.  Once you open the box you are greeted by three other smaller boxes, each containing a separate piece of the system.  The included tubing was long enough to be used in a full tower case, assuming that the pump and radiator were right beside each other.  Though if your case has hard drive bays all the way to the bottom of the case, and you don't have a full tower case then this system will not fit in you case.

The pieces that were included were very good, however the fact that the first sample I received had a leak on the water block itself is not a good sign.  This was not an isolated occurrence as The Tech Lounge had the same problem with their first review sample as well.  Testing the water cooler before you put it on the CPU is a good idea as the problems we had shows.

Installation of the water cooling system was slightly more time consuming that some other heatsinks.  In the case of the Athlon system it was pretty easy if you were using the clips to install the system.  The four mounting holes, assuming your motherboard has it, is a much better option if you are leaving the water block on for a long time, as it reduces the stress on the socket.  Mounting on a Pentium IV system is annoying and can be considered harder than most other heatsinks I've used so far.  It uses the standard PIV retention bracket, but the fact that the bracket wasn't designed for that heatsink, and the fact that it is comprised of three pieces, shows why the installation on the Pentium IV isn't that easy/nice.

Performance of this system is rather nice.  On the Athlon system, for which this water cooler was designed especially for it takes second place to a higher speed heatsink/fan combination, while beating out the quieter coolers but only when overclocked.  When at stock speeds the Thermalright and WS5 come to a tie, for all intents and purposes, which means that if you are looking at cooling your system at stock speeds this cooler will do the job. 

Moving to the Pentium IV system we see a small change in results.  Here the WS5 doesn't fair as well, as it comes in a 'distant' second place to the Vantec AeroFlow, by between 5-7ºC in both tests.  However the water cooling system does beat the stock Intel  cooler by a couple of degrees.  Since the design wasn't one that was made specifically for PIV systems it doesn't do extremely bad, but still being bested by a inexpensive heatsink/fan that is similar is noise level.

This leads us to the price of the cooler, which isn't that expensive for a water cooling system but is still quite a bit more expensive than a cooler that most other regular heatsink/fans, some of which can use 80mm fans as well.
