A quick follow up a few weeks later

my temps across the board are rock solid while folding 24/7 I never see them go over 49/50 C in the middle of the day when them ambient temp in the room is 85 F and Higher as we are bumping 94F out side here in south florida

So, I am seeing it improve as it settles in. It was up around 52C Folding and has yet to get there again in the last 2 weeks.


All Temps taken by real temp 3.0

whathuhitwasntme, Thanks for the update. Long term are just as important as performance alone.

We have a few still outstanding?

I am updating all forum results to date for the website 10 forums and you guys are included

I had some time on my hands and felt like I should revisit this project.

I took a quick idle temp, its not a "real" cool down shot, because that would require I actually let the pc set some time. It does however show you the warm idle temp for my pc.


Image


then I re started folding and prime 95 and about everything else I can find to really abuse the processor. Ran it about 30 minutes at 100 % cpu use. Full on max abuse. results as shown here:

Image



I have cupid HARDWARE monitor an REAL TEMP 3.0 running to show a odd temperature opinion from them on the CPU temp. They agree on the GPU at 51C but disagree on the CPU averaging a 5 C difference of temp reading on the two.

I was pretty sure there was no point in hoping that prime 95 was actually going to get much done with 2 instances of folding at home running and sucking 100% of the cpu. It did get a little done but would honestly take a long term run to see it generate a result for prime 95.

quick list of the hardware to compare by

E8500 core 2 duo stock clock never over clocked
GeForce 9800 GT vid card
6gb ddr corsair
raptor 10k hdd not the new ones the old style

oddly enough it was the GPU that heated up more than the rest, seems that inside the case must have been generating more heat so it was taking a hit on temp performance. It typically runs in the 47/48 C range while folding.

The ambient temp was around 76 no special cooling added. All air cooled no water in the case.


this stuff just keeps improving with age for me so far. I have seen it drop another 6 degrees C in baseline temp. Honestly would like to know if the core 2 duo's run in or around that range? I keep reading about i7s being in the low 30C temps and it just amazes me that they running so cool compared to my 45nm wolfdale CPU. Cant wait for the follow up package of stuff to arrive, I have a GPU I need to apply it to!

hmm.. I stopped getting updates from this thread, thought it had died.

I saw some reports recently about the latest i7 not breaking 50C at load...

WHY CAN"T MY i7 RUN THAT COOL!!!!!!


My ICD7 is running great though. Everything is still nice and cool.

Looks like no stragglers left to post. I thought we would have had more results. Many thanks to those that took the time and effort

In any event probably close it out next week and after that for those that posted their results I will make arrangements to send them their free tube of ICD24


Thanks again

Andrew

haha. Can't wait to see what this '24' stuff is all about :)

Thanks Andrew, you've been great. I know we all appreciate you and your company taking the time to run this test with us.

Awesome company with an Awesome product.

for those of us looking for it on sale someplace
they have it at DIRECTRON for about the same amount price as Artic Silver.

http://www.directron.com/icdiamond7.html

probably not a bad idea to help support a contest sponsor and its a great item that really works in my opinion.

cool. I was about to comment that we should petition newegg, frys, Microcenter, ZipZoomFly, and all the other places to start carrying their stuff.

Dragging this back up to the top.
I feel it's been a long enough time to justify asking, HEY what happened?

There has been ZERO follow up on this?
Did we just get used as testers for nothing? Wasn't there supposed to be a second mailing of a full size tube at the end of this?

Would sure like to know what's going on.

?

we all did this voluntarily in the spirit of open testing. anything we get in return is nice, but I didnt do it for a free tube of anything. I did it to give non biased data to the public (as well as the ICD company as required, but that is secondary).
