Now that we have all five processors, the AMD X2 series have been tried, we would like to now present the results of our long study, as the X2 series came on the market, it has ushered in with the dual-core processor technology, a new era, the days of multi-processors has begun, also we were from the beginning with a 4800 + is, at the time-line model.
But even then it was faced with the tough choice of which model you should buy after all, was the smallest processor with a PR of 3800 + stepping, and the largest given by 4800 +, was this 1000 MHz difference really worth the big price difference today, almost 9 months after the release, we can give you an almost clear-cut answer.
Besides the high price difference there is, of course, even more, which makes the 5 processors, starting from the different clock rates, the level 2 cache up to the overclocking features, you get late on what CPU is the best choice. Who does not have the wherewithal, you should rather wait for a couple of reports or wait for a particular stepping, no matter what clock, we come now to the main features of the five processors.
This is now the first thing you need to know before buying how hot are the processors, this can be answered with a simple table is not same for all systems, since playing enclosure, cooling and indoor temperature are very important. The 4800 + is the warmest, one does not need long to measure, which was of a clear perspective, but we are big differences, all you need is a very good cooler and may not alter the system during the tests, then you come to a relatively precise value.
From the cooling ago, we have chosen the Noctua NH-U12p, this cooler is so big and huge that it can be equipped with a quiet 120mm fan and still loose a 4800 + cools, as a fan of Coolink Swif was used in 1202, currently the best 120mm fan.
The temperatures are still turned out differently, between the strongest X2, the X2 4800 + and the weakest, are the 3800 + was at least 7 degrees under full load difference, that does not sound like much, but if you remember what we had in the system are cooler, 7 ° is not so little. Under less favorable conditions, such as in summer, at 30 degrees room temperature, the difference was around 10 to 15 ° degrees will be, as the 4800 + runs with more VCore, and so is generally warmer.
From the 4400 + should pay attention to any case for good cooling, even if a shutdown at 72 degrees or so built-in features such as Cool'n'Quiet, if the cooler is quiet and still be powerful, you have to invest a little, as proven by our numerous tests with the 4800 + cooler.
