With the methodology explained and out of the way, let’s see how the CPU-380I block performs first in the flow test.
The CPU-380I is spitting out 10.1 liters (2.67 gallons) per minute and sitting in the third place in our comparison with other top CPU water blocks, which is very impressive.
Let’s check the thermal results now.
The CPU-380I was tested with one and two pumps in a redundancy configuration. The two pumps setup is also known as a “Series” configuration. Pumps are set at their maximum speed. This test is to determine which block is more favorable to a high flow system.
The following chart reports the Delta temperature under load. The temperature Delta means the difference between the average memory temperature and the average air temperature. This reporting method reflects the true efficiency of the heat-spreaders cooling capability because it eliminates ambient air temperature variations in the data being compared.
Astonishingly, the Koolance CPU-380 outperforms all of today’s top blocks in both single and dual pump configurations. The evidence shows the CPU-380 loves a high flow setup, and it surpass the Raystorm and the Supremacy by 0.5°c.
Let’s wrap things up.
