I am here again today looking at yet another cooler in my obvious search for the best cooling solution. The OCZ Dominator 2-CU is going to be the one that gets picked apart today. This cooler looks similar to what would come with a retail Athlon XP, but OCZ has integrated a copper bottom on it. There's not much to say about this cooler. Its not flashy and exotic like some of the other coolers on the market but it did have one plus, it performed excellent. I didn't expect it to receive the numbers that it did, I was actually expecting not to be able to complete the load test because of my overclock.
As I launched into what would ultimately become known as Project OCCC, I was looking for a roomy case with lots of flexibility. The finished project is to be used in reviewing hardware and so will see lots of parts swapping in and out. In addition, it has to have enough room to accomodate a fairly serious DangerDen water cooling setup. After much looking around, I eventually picked the AOpen HX-08 server tower. Today I'll show you what it is, what I liked, and what could use improvement in their design.
