Overview article comparing CPUs and die simulators for testing

As www.procooling.com returns to testing watercooling and high end air cooling solutions, they were faced with a decision on how to configure their test system. They have compiled some general good and bad of all the available techniques into one article to hopefully help others out as well as themselves. Here’s a quote:

“What it comes down to is that we are perhaps moving out of a period where die simulator advantages far outweighed their drawbacks into a time where the complexity of CPUs as heat sources may preclude simulating them with simple copper dies. In other words, to do good quality die simulator testing we will also have to do good CPU-based testing if we hope to make the high resolution simulator results relevant to real world CPU cooling.”
