Stock Benchmark Results
Idle temperatures between the two waterblocks is very close. Load temperatures show a difference of 2.9° C. Even then at stock speeds and voltages for the Intel i7 5960x, low to mid 40’s is a great result.
Since the only full cover block I have is the Bitspower EIX99, I figured I’d show the results of the VRM and PCH as compared to the stock configuration on the motherboard. Overclocking puts the most heat through the voltage regulation module (VRM). Overclocking tests showed the VRMs hit over 40°C whereas the waterblock dropped the temps by 2.3° C.
