Thermalright XWB-1 CPU Block Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
For many years now, Thermalright has been the leader when it comes to air cooling. Well, now the company has turned their attention towards water cooling. Hardware Canucks has posted an exclusive review of Thermalrights first water block, the XWB-1.
Heres what they had to say:
I was surprised. Thermalright's first attempt at a CPU water block performs well on our test bed, looks great, and has a good bundle included with it, especially the backplate, and colour-coded mounting screws. Little touches like that go a long way. One thing I'd like to see added to the bundle would be an AM2 backplate, but realistically, how many water cooling enthusiasts are running AM2 CPUs right now...
Although it requires a high flow loop to outperform the competition, this is still a very impressive first attempt for Thermalright.
