It's quite obvious that the Pentium 4 is the VapoChill XE's natural forte. From the easier installation compared to Socket A and greater cooling capacity due to cooler CPU's, you can see why P4 is the CPU of choice for most VapoChill users today.
I wasn't expecting much overclocking from the Extreme Edition, due to die size, but 4GHz was a genuine surprise, especially at the voltage needed. It's a shame the voltage mod on the EPoX didn't quite work, I'd have been showing off at 4.2GHz+.
The XE coped without fuss, the Enermax PSU feeding it all the 12V juice it desired and there wasn't a situation I could engineer for the XE that it didn't laugh at. 180W really is enough, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
The new Windows software for ChillControl operation really adds to things. The ability to run in Quiet mode for day to day tasks and then crank the fans up for maximum cooling performance during games or intensive applications is just what's needed.
The installation with a P4 is also excellent, I can't really fault it. You've got no chance of breaking your CPU core since it's covered by the integrated heat spreader.
For those looking to get the most out of a Pentium 4 processor, especially up in the giddy heights of 4GHz operation with a 3.0, 3.2 or 3.2 Extreme Edition, VapoChill XE will suit your obviously deep pockets.
Again, thoroughly recommended for the well off overclocker, especially the Pentium 4 runner. 4000MHz is a lovely figure. The overclocking world awaits Asetek's Athlon 64 mounting hardware with baited breath, I'm sure they wont disappoint.
